  • Delicious Clubhouse sandwich. They really do a great club sandwich. The chicken was moist and a great balance of other flavours. The beer battered chips were also very good. The coffee was also great. A terrific find after our very enjoyable tour of the Adelaide Oval.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • The Playford is one of my favourite hotels. It never disappoints. This time I had a very late arrival time but the staff were well aware of this and ensured my check-in was seamless. As expected my room was comfortable and of course the restaurant was very good. I particularly like the focus on local produce.

  • The Playford is elegance and nostalgia. Art deco finishes add to the ambience of being transported to another time. The staff were fantastic, the food fabulous and the accommodation excellent. Particular praise to the young waitress Elise who we were lucky enough to have look after us on both nights in the restaurant. Delightful young lady who took the time and trouble to remember us and ensure our meal was memorable. The hotel is centrally located within walking distance to Rundle Mall, the Casino and the Arts precinct. We also took a stroll along the river which was also close by. I will most definitely stay at The Playford again.
