Thank you so much to the Hotel Staff, Nurses and State Police for contributing to an incredible 2 week, quarantine experience in Room 416. You all had roles to play and you all excelled with professionalism, kindness and adherence to the covid 19 protocols. Much thought had been given and action taken towards my physical, emotional and psychological well-being during this time. I literally sailed through the time enjoying free WiFi movies books puzzles and tourist information. Even though I could tap into the Playford hotel FB activities I had other interests to keep my spirits up. So as I was not allowed out and no one was allowed in my room I managed to keep fit by walking 11 - 12 kilometres a day as well as doing my own dusting, vacuuming, bed making and general tidying. It was wonderful having 3 meals a day bought to the door always a pleasant surprise inside. Thank you once again my experience was truly memorable.

When you stay in an up market property with the Accor Group (as a Diamond member I have stayed in many) you expect that you can dine in the hotel on any day and across 3 meals a day. There always seems to some excuse with this hotel. This time they only had 2 dinners nights and when we wanted fish we were told- sorry but we are not buying any more as this hotel will close at the end of the week (5 days away0 for quarantine. The majority of staff are fantastic but there always seems to be one in at the breakfast session that gives the impression that everything is too much trouble. it is a shame as one person can spoil all the efforts of everyone else who made every effort. The rooms are very clean. overall this is still a great place in Adelaide to stay.

The hotel was excellent. The room was very comfortable, and all staff we came into contact with, were friendly and helpful. The location was perfect for things we wanted to do around Adelaide. With current restrictions the restaurant was closed, which we understand, but it was disappointing for a hotel of that quality.

Had the pleasure for a weekend city stay at the Playford. The Hotel is in a great location with very professional staff delivering elementary service both at the Front Desk and restaurant. Has a good gym and pool area at basement level. The room is very comfortable with everything you need to enjoy your stay though the mattress is overdue being replaced, was a little uncomfortable for me. Had breakfast in the restaurant, service was very good and the food delicious. Look forward to returning sometime in the future.
