This is a friendly hotel, very comfortable with good facilities. The breakfasts are particularly tasty. Just watch the wine by the glass in the bar - not good. You're better with the beer!

Room Tip: Try to get an upgrade - room 201 was good.

Hotel was nice n comfortable. Got a free room upgrade (was travelog on business). Check in and out were both quick with no troubles. Concierge was able to recommend nice local reasaurants for dinner. Breakfast at hotel was great, though I wouldn't pay that much for breakfast if not on an expense account ($30)

The suites are loft style and very large and well appointed. A nice hotel in a city with a few.

Stayed here the night of our wedding in a spa suite and it was absolutely beautiful. Nice balcony over North Terrace, great spa, big bed!

I'm sure this hotel has ruined me for future holidays. The staff were friendly and efficient. The room was generous and comfortable, the location handy to most things. As a vegetarian I highly recommend the mushrooms three ways and when I ordered outside dinner hours room service were happy to adapt another dish for me. I would come here just for the breakfast though - the range available was a joy to behold and a delight to eat. Mmmnn tamarillos. I also found the movie deal to be great value - a good selection of new movies for 24 hours at around $26.

Stayed in Adelaide for business for two nights and my usual accommodation was booked out. Decided to give the Sebel Playford a go and wasn't disappointed. All the staff were friendly and helpful, the rooms are comfortable and well appointed and it is well located. I'm not too sure what type of room I had but it was big enough for two queen sized beds. At long last a hotel where the the air con is quiet and the thermostat in the correct place to cool the room evenly.

Even though I only enjoyed the buffet breakfast once, the food was plentiful and tasted great. Try the breakfast juices provided - they were a blend of fruits, some I hadn't even heard of and were delicious.

Will be back.

Traditional sandstone building on central North Terrace. Looks a lot more expensive than it is. There are huge gilded chandeliers in the lobby and cute lounges. I stayed on Saturday night in a Playford Guestroom furnished like a room in a boutique hotel not a chain hotel. The room was comfortable and clean. The staff are friendly and helpful.
