Stayed one night in the beautiful Sebel. Nice sized room, great big bed, very clean.
The heated pool could be a bit warmer but the spa was lovely.
Enjoyed drinks at the bar & the band.
Beautiful breakfast was great.
We would recommend staying here.

We stayed in the loft suite for 2 nights after our wedding. Fantastic room and great service.

Best breakfast either of us have ever had!!

Downsides - no view, slightly seedy area at night (but good for 2am McDonald's).

Overall we loved our stay here.

Room Tip: Loft suite was brilliant

My husband & two girls stayed here for 4 nights and what a wonderful experience it was! Kerry & Marco would have to be the BEST concierge staff we have ever encountered anywhere in the world. These guys made our holiday & really fussed over our girls which they loved. We can not fault anything about this hotel. It is in a great area and close to everything(shopping,trams,parks,restaurants etc). The rooms were spacious, very clean(the housekeeping staff were so helpful & always, always friendly) and quiet. If the manager of this hotel reads this, then please give Marco, Kerry & housekeeping a big Christmas bonus as they make the Sebel North Terrace a special place to holiday.

This hotel is exceptional for two reasons: the breakfast has to be seen to be believed (if you travel often and cannot stand to see another breakfast buffet with watery scrambled eggs then this hotel will restore your appetite) and the amazing staff in all areas address guests by name throughout their stay and are genuinely amiable.
Seriously, it is worth staying here just for the breakfast (do NOT have continental).

Everything about this hotel was a pleasure. Their service was impeccable. We absolutely loved Marco and the concierge staff, all of whom went out of their way to ensure our stay was pleasant and that we had the best advice. Actually, every single person inside the hotel from housekeeping to the bar/wait staff did the same. The room was very spacious, temperature control was quick and quiet. The bathroom, large with all the extras! including an excellent shower. We enjoyed dinner and breakfast in the bar/restaurant (more relaxed atmosphere) and both times the food was exceptional and prices were very comparable - overall we thought Australia a bit expensive. If I were to find myself in Adelaide ever again, I would stay at The Sebel Playford.

Back in Town Again at Sebel Playford Adelaide.
This the Talk of the Town.
The decor is Renaissance/Rococo/Byzantine/European Elegance.
Everything that is Gold Does Glitter in this regard.
You are literally swept off your feet and carried up to your Suite by the very Debonaire Concierge Team, Marco, Christophe & Kery a combination of the very best of Italian/French/Greek Charm.

It is very easy to fall in love with this Hotel.......................

The Breakfast is World Class....................

The Restaurant is Oh So Elegant and the Service is Exceptional

So What Are you waiting for ...Adelaide awaits you.

Room Tip: I personally love the North Terrace Suites

We needed a last minute room on a Friday night, after an extremely long day. I called up and enquired, and was given a competitive rate and good directions by two very polite and helpful desk staff. When we got there, despite the lateness of the hour, everyone was cheerful and happy to help. The building looks luxurious too, which helped contribute to the sense that we were finally somewhere we could relax!

Even though we'd booked at the last minute and got a standard room, I was very impressed with our accommodation. The room is generous in space (compared to others I've stayed in) with plenty of floor space around all the furniture. The bed was big and comfortable, and the curtains were very effective - we woke at 8 thinking it must have still been very early as it was so dark!

All in all I am very impressed with this hotel. The staff were excellent, the rate reasonable, and the room lovely. Just what we needed!
