“great hotel...BEST buffet breakfast.”
Reviewed July 6, 2013

I stayed at this hotel a couple years back with my Mum. The first thing I must say is that they have the BEST buffet breakfast I have ever tasted...even two years later nothing has compared. Everything was fantastically set out...everything was fresh...service was amazing. Even if you are not staying at this hotel I would defs recommend a trip to the breakfast buffet. Moving on to the actual hotel itself...location was good...rooms were great. Very comfortable rooms with great beds and bathroom. I was not feeling the best so the 2 night we were there we just watched in room movies with our bath robes on...very relaxing. General decor of the hotel was beautiful...very antiquated. Lovely boutique hotel. xo alexandria xo

Room Tip: Room with a view might be nice. We just had a view of a wall !

The family had a great time at this hotel. The staff were very friendly. Plenty of room in the lobby and bar area. Good sized rooms. Convenient location near tram stop, shopping, restaurants, casino, etc... Good gym and swimming pool+spa - open 24 hours. The food is excellent - both Breakfast and Dinner - fresh and organic!

Room Tip: Room overlooking courtyard is nice.

Had a great night at the Sebel Playford, which was only improved on by the upgrade to a better room. On a whim we decided to stay an extra night and were offered the same room again at really great discounted rate. It is the little things that keep us coming back and the attention to service! We do miss the atmosphere of the live music with dancing though :( The music was average on Saturday (but different musicians on different nights) and tables on the dance floor lost its edge for us a little. Dinner in the restaurant was fantastic as always and the waiter who served us answered every question I had about the food without hesitation, extensive knowledge of both food and wine and buffet breakfast the next day was also superb and worth the $$.

What another wonderful stay at the Sebel!! We were so lucky to have a suite and everything was perfect. The room, or should I say rooms as we had a kitchenette, lounge area, bedroom and bathroom and the balcony too were so beautifully decked out and spotlessly clean.
The Sebel have just put pod coffee machines in their room and I for one LOVE a decent coffee without the bother and mess of a plunger, so thank you management, well thought of.
Breakfast the next morning was nothing short of spectacular, so much choice, so many flavours but also catered for those amongst that just want simple cereal and toast, but not me, I think I had four plates of wonderful fresh ingredients that were all so delightfull.
Can't wait to return in August when I have reason to stay again!!

we've stayed at the sebel playford 3 times and we can't wait to get back there again. where do I start? we love.... the food in the restaurant (the best coffin bay oysters in adelaide, no, the best oysters in australia)...... the concierge is a hoot (read: delightful, funny, helpful, knowledgeable)..... the rooms have a kitchen! (what a handy feature, especially to unpack your goodies you've picked up from adelaide central markets!)..... only a short tram ride from the adelaide central markets (a must-do must-see if you're going to adelaide).... across the road from the playhouse (we've seen quite a few plays in the theatre across the road, always fun)...... in the centre of the city (being across the road from tourist attractions is very handy, when you're a tourist)..... across the road from the botanical gardens! (do yourself a favour and hire a bike for the day, ride around the park and feel like a kid again = priceless). what can I say, we love love love the sebel.... staff are friendly. great laundry! fantastic business centre. one of the best buffet breakfasts you could ever come across using all the local produce. the sebel playford is possibly one of the best equipped hotels we've ever stayed in..... highly recommend

Room Tip: the standard (deluxe) rooms are actually better than the new york-style split-level penthouse rooms...
