  • The Playford gave us everything that we could ever want for our visit to Adelaide. This pleasurable experience started with the very convenient easy car park then on to the smiling welcoming reception staff then to the spacious spotless and comfortable suite with the best shower ever.

  • Thank you for all the work you put into making our stay special. The room was amazing, the bed so comfortable and the decor clean and bold. The room service was punctual and impeccable. Customer service is something that is not taken lightly and your staff are fine examples of great customer service. Thank you for helping me with all our special requests as it made the stay perfect.

  • Exceptionally friendly and professional staff adds to the lovely character of the hotel. Over the past 18 years I have stayed on numerous occasions at The Playford. Love the old charm which is enhanced by good old fashioned service. Every experience was exceptional.

  • This property is brilliant. Adelaide is not a huge city but this is well located on North Tce just across from the Convention Centre. Service is top notch, rooms are very well appointed and comfortable. The bar downstairs is a great place to sit back and have a drink. A very relaxed atmosphere. I ate both breakfast and dinner in the restaurant and could not fault anything. One of the best hotel experiences I have had on my travels and Adelaide delivers. I look forward to coming back.

  • My wife and I stay at The Playford several times a year and it is still our favourite hotel. The rooms are lovely, always cleaned, constantly maintained and just a pleasure to stay here. As regular guests... the long term staff are genuinely pleased to see us... So if your looking to stay 5 star in Adelaide's CBD do try The Playford. It is very boutique!.. and DO dine in their 5 star dining room. It's in a league of its own and a great dining experience.
