The Playford - MGallery by Sofitel

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed March 7, 2014

The Sebel is extremely centrally located in Adelaide, just opposite some of the main buildings such as government house and the museum and art gallery, but also close to shops and restaurants, though their own takes some beating. We dined there twice and were delighted with the food which I guess is modern Australian. The only problem with the restaurant is that it is really an extension of the bar area, though we were seated on the raised dais which separated it a bit.
Our room was done out in neutral colours and was a bit 'corporate' but pleasantly large with lots of cupboard space and room for luggage. There was no view as such but I suspect it's a difficult site to get good views from and the lack of them didn't bother us as there was little traffic noise. coffee making facilities + complementary vouchers for coffee or juice from the bar. The air con was excellent which was necessary as the temps were around 40 degrees! large bathroom with a separate shower and plenty of marble shelf room. As other people have noted the staff were extremely helpful and friendly.

Room Tip: Adelaide is very busy and can be noisy so best to choose a side room to avoid traffic noise.

Excellent stay at this lovely hotel close to restaurant and pubs, and shopping! Very friendly staff, helpful in any way. Great indoor pool, gym and sauna. Fun for kids and parents alike. Room was clean an plenty of space. Good coffee and tea facilities, tv, and nice smelling toiletries.
Great stay!

Thank you so much for training your staff, it shows. We were welcomed with a smile and made to feel special the entire time of our stay. Special mentions to Con the witty waiter and Tegan. Both very friendly and professional. Also our dinner in the restaurant was amazing.

This is a very nice hotel that is conveniently located on North Terrace. It is adjacent to Rundle Street which has numerous restaurants and bars. Next to a parking station and a Hertz rental car office with Bus stops at the front you have great transport options. The staff are very friendly and I could not fault the service. The rooms were very comfortable, clean, spacious and quiet. I will being staying here again.

Room Tip: Room 216 was good.

We have stayed here a few times and recently treated ourselves to a 2night stay prior to christmas. The staff are always welcoming and we were treated to an upgrade to a spa suite. We always like to stay down the back of the hotel away from North Terrace and the little side street between Hindley and North Terrace as the noise can be terrible with late night party people. A view (this is Adelaide!) is not important to us. I love the spa suite rooms as they have a little kitchen area, and separate bedroom to lounge. Love using the indoor pool and gym area and if you want a great priced pizza try the Australian pizza place around the corner near the convenience store. Looks unappealing from the outside great tasting and well priced pizzas.

I love staying at places where the staff are friendly. And this hotel has some of the friendliest staff ever! The hotel is in a great location, close to plenty of restaurants and I have always felt safe walking around the nearby streets.
Room amenities are amazing. They look like a cheeseboard! Bed is comfortable and having a selection of pillows is also a lovely feature.

This could be a good hotel, but let itself down with a penny pinching approach. We booked a loft room - the most expensive category. We arrived at the hotel when the temperature in Adelaide was 43C. And the air conditioning in the room was off! (It needs the room key card in a slot to operate). The heat in the room was unbearable - hotter inside than out - and it took about 3 hours to cool. When I mentioned this at the check in desk, I was told "Thanks for the feedback". Huh! This, plus the outrageous charge of $10 for an hour and a half's in room internet (when will so called 5 star hotels realise that charging for internet use is as unacceptable as charging for TV use or hot water? And no - a free hour in the lobby doesn't count)), no bottled water, charging for a newspaper, limiting you to 2 free nespresso pods etc, etc., just left us feeling irritated and ripped off. And it must be the only hotel in the world to expect you to book for breakfast the day before! We weren't impressed.The Crowne Plaza is a better option.
