  • Excellence maintained. Our 18th stay at The Playford and quality of service and comfort remains of excellent standard. Restaurant food and all staff are an asset...

  • Truly one of the loveliest hotels we have ever stayed in. Our room was gorgeous. The staff were so friendly and helpful. The breakfast buffet was delicious. The location is perfect. We highly recommend.

  • We loved our weekend at The Playford. We stayed in a spacious Spa suite which was perfect travelling with a toddler. The buffet breakfast was absolutely fabulous. The best buffet we have experienced and we have had our fair share of hotel breakfasts. Highly worth the stay for the food alone. The beds are extremely comfortable too. We will be back!

  • Fantastic accommodation and amazing staff. The Playford is my favourite accommodation when  I travel... and I travel every week for work. Hands down the best in Australia from the friendly staff to the comfortable rooms. Never disappoints.

  • WOW - what a cool hotel! Wonderful personalised service and were very helpful right from the outset.
