  • The Playford is a truly fantastic hotel and my favourite place to stay in Adelaide. A mix of modern amenities, old world charm and outstanding service make this a truly excellent hotel.

  • Magical! From the very start it was welcoming and very professional.

  • Spectacular hotel, super service, sensational staff, scrumptious food and stunning room.

  • We stayed with you last night, and wanted to pass on our congratulations on your customer service. Across-the-board, your customer service was exemplary. We run a small business ourselves, that is focused on good customer service - so we notice when it’s done we’ll. From our first welcome at the door, to the check in with Tim, the breakfast with Capri, and even the interaction with the pool maintenance guy...

  • Every time I stay at this hotel it just gets better!  From the minute I arrived the service was outstanding. The rooms are great and the new bathrooms are brilliant. Everything was perfect welcome drink, breakfast, coffee, chocolates... Thank you to everyone... this could be the best hotel experience I will have this year.
