Some times it can be hit or miss when organising the annual function. The Sebel did a fantastic job. The food was excellent and all guests were served promptly. There were plently of atttentive staff throughout the fuction. The staff involved in the booking and planning process were extremely helpful and professional. We will use the venue again.

I stayed four nights here and loved it.
Ideal for those that like to try keep fit (full gym - very nice).
Also great location for shopping, dining, and pretty much anything you could think of.
Everything is walking distance.
The staff were amazing!
(couldn't rate breakfast cause I didn't have it there - but it seems to be VERY popular as it books out)

Room Tip: Maybe ask for a room away from the car park over the back - it wasn't a major issue but a car al...

This hotel was above average in every way. From the moment we arrived the staff were friendly, helpful and full of information on the local area and places to eat etc.
The rooms are VERY clean, modern and spacious (some have said dated but I think that the elegant approach works well for the hotel and its got a lovely luxurious vibe).
The buffet breakfast is absolutely AMAZING with such a healthy gourmet approach to the generally tired and boring old buffet in most hotels - hats off the the chef!!
I love the little extras like the pillow menu, the coffee voucher on arrival and the full menu room service that arrives fresh and hot.
The windows actually open to let in fresh air which is rare these days in a hotel and even with the window open it was not too noisy.
The pool area is very nice and the gym looks like its been recently refurbished and its not too bad for a hotel gym - had everything I needed for a quick workout.
Overall I will definitely stay here again when travelling to Adelaide.

I stay here all of the time for work and it is always nice enough. I think it is a little dated in style but the rooms are clean, handy to my office, room service is good and the staff polite. No gym on site which is an issue for other corporates.

I was in Adelaide for only one night and choose to stay at the Playford to compare them to other places I have stayed in Adelaide recently.
Once again the "Review Bible" Tripadviser never let me down........The Playford was Fantastic!!!!
Check in and Check out were so easy with the staff being very professional and genuinely taking an interest in why you were in town and offering great advice on a few things I needed. The warm friendly feel was present everywhere I went in the hotel.
The room was very clean and all the fixtures were in good working order and not showing any sign of being passed there use by date.......The décor itself was a little bit old hat , but I new it wasn't going to be a trendy yuppy style before I booked , so no disappointments there.
Overall the Playford topped the list of places I have stayed in Adelaide previously , so I will definitely make it my Adelaide digs from now on.
Many thanks to all the great staff at the Playford, you are a credit to the management .

Room Tip: Spend a little more for a better class of room , so much more room
