We were upgraded at check in to a suite with a view. The standard of service,room and breakfast was excellent. This is an expensive hotel, but you don't mind when it meets your expectations.

Stayed at the Playford for a week while on business. We were a group of 10. Great location. The staff were extremely accommodating of our (many and varied) requests. The snob factor was low. Sizable rooms with all of the usual modern touches (didn't see ipad docking station though). The breakfasts (both room service and sit down buffet) were amazing and suitable to any diet or whim. Quite impressive.

The meeting rooms were great too - easy-to-use wide screen monitors, comfy chairs for those long hours sitting, interesting decor, relatively soundproofed. A downside was the morning and afternoon teas which were yummy, but weren't abundant. Like many business hotels, the price for internet was outrageous ($35 for 24 hours I believe) - particularly as nearly any backpackers will give you free wifi these days.

All in all, I'd stay here again although probably not on my own dime.

This was our 4th stay at the Sebel Playford, and once again we could not fault the service and attention to detail. This stay we were upgraded to a Studio Spa Suite, thanks to the very helpfull reservations manager at the time of booking.
The room was excellent, with a seperate bedroom and lounge area, which proved very usefull as my husband has been restless at night lately and wanted to watch TV at 2.00 am. He just closed the door and I continued sleeping. The Kind size bed was excellent, and I had the best 2 nights sleep I have had in ages. Very nice bathroom with spa & seperate shower.
We spent quite a bit of time in the lounge bar area after a day out shopping, relaxing with a drink. I love the Art Nouveau decor throughout the hotel.
Breakfast was included in our package (Revive@Mirvac Package). It was amazing. There was such a wide choice of fresh fruits, berries, yogurts, indulgent cereals, full cooked buffet, plus homade breads, mini crumpets and pancakes.All the staff were very friendly and extremely helpful.
We will definitely stay again when we are next in Adelaide

A great hotel with great breakfasts. The best bircher ever and a great selection of hot food. Rooms were clean and the bed comfortable. Ask for a room well away from the cleaning staff storage room which can be noisy at all hours. Pool is excellent. Didn't use the gym but it looked well appointed. And then there's Marco, the best reception man in the business - friendly and extremely helpful. Near to the gallery, botanic gardens, casino opposite and the Mall. Parking opposite in the public car park. Hotel can be hard to find on the first visit. Room service dinner was yum. I'd stay here again in a flash.

The hotel is located within walking distance of the Festival Theatre, Adelaide Casino and Rundle Mall (shopping). There are numerous restaurants and fast-food restaurants nearby. The rooms are large and contain every imaginable item required for an overnight stay. Beds are comfortable and pillows soft. The bar is delightful, plenty of seating, loads of atmosphere including a live band. The breakfast is just fantastic, healthy food items are plentiful and staff provide fast and efficient service. This is our second stay and on both occasions we have received an up-grade.

We had a great stay..

Arriving early 9.00am, expecting to just check in and leave our bags until official check in at 2pm, we were advised our room would be ready in 10 minutes, so we could wait and then go to our room.

Whilst waiting for the room we were offered a complimentary coffee at the cafe.

The room was clean, king size bed, good shower.

Concierge was very helpful at advising a Awsome steak restaurant, and managed to get us booked in, on a Saturday night.

All in all a brilliant stay..
