  • One of the best hotels that I have ever stayed in. I was very impressed by the quality of the room, the cleanliness of the hotel, and the professionalism of the staff. Has a nice gym with a great dry-heat sauna and a pool. But the highlight of the hotel is it's breakfast buffet, without doubt the healthiest and most delicious buffet I have ever encountered in my travels. This hotel is a model for others to follow. I can't imagine a better hotel existing in the Adelaide area and it is superior to hotels where I have stayed in dozens of countries.

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

  • Excellent hotel, friendly and helpful staff with beautiful design and decoration. Breakfast was fantastic, the room well maintained and very comfortable. I would come back to Adelaide just to stay at this hotel again.

  • Probably my favourite hotel in Australia with a superb restaurant, and that is from someone who travels a lot.

  • 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!
