“Top hotel - not too large”
Reviewed December 30, 2013

The Sebel was a very positive experience. Good location with parking house across the street.
Great staff, very helpful and knowledgeable. Gym was good. Plus for washing machine (3$ wash, 3$ drying).
Best breakfast in a looong time! Worth the 34$.Only drawback is that WiFi is not free here either.
Would be my first option if in Adelaide again.

We stayed for our anniversary in September and were amazed by how beautiful the hotel is. We used our food credit included in our room purchase to order room service for dinner and the club sandwich was honestly the best I've ever had. The staff are very polite and attentive, the pool area was nice and the gym looked well stocked with equipment.

We stayed in both the Sebel Playford and Majestic Rooftop Hotel during our recent trip to Adelaide. Both hotels were good though out of the two, Majestic is better located in the nicer end of town, and the hotel and rooms have the edge. The Sebel is becoming a little worn looking in places (particularly the furniture in the lobby). We liked the fact that at the Sebel you could get a simple, cheap meal in the lobby, including breakfast - cheaper meal options weren't available at Majestic. Another thing we liked about Sebel was the fact that fresh milk was offered free of charge and they provided more teabags! But then the Sebel didn't have free WiFi in the rooms. The staff at both were great. All in all, my choice would be the Majestic.

Room Tip: The rooms which face the side alley are quite dark - overshadowed by tall building.

This place is a bit like stepping back into the 80s. The room was ok but our expectations were set very high by some of the reviews on here. The breakfast is very very good though as was dining in the evening in the restaurant. Hotel is also well located to stroll around the city or jump in a car and get to the wine regions.
Overall good but will try somewhere else next time I visit Adelaide

Good quality hotel, friendly staff, central enough for all amenities and transport, Nice bar area.
If we have a couple of quibbles it would be that there is only free wi-fi available in the public areas, and that the tiles around the pool area are pretty dangerous when wet.
Also some rooms have views facing out onto an anonymous block - not very inviting.

From our arrival to check-in to check-out the service was superb and truly worthy of its 5 stars. Got an unexpected upgrade to a suite, so a huge room with spa bath. The team at the Sebel made our stay extremely pleasant and helped with whatever we needed, the only thing i could fault was the view from the balcony looked out to a brick wall. Overall service was fantastic.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view.

Positive - staff was helpful and pleasant, room decor was nice, location.
Negative - NOISE!!!!!! Where do i begin, from the bloody rubbish truck collecting rubbish at what seems like 1:00AM and other annoying noise coming outside, ruined my night sleep.

I can put up with not so brand new facilities and amenities or no view either but when I'm travelling, my sleep is the most important thing. Will not be staying at this hotel again for sure.

Room Tip: Maybe ask for a room not facing the side of the street (facing the car park).
