  • Great hotel in a great location with breakfast as good as you would get anywhere in Australia. Good package and good value.

  • The best hotel I have stayed in. From the moment we checked in with Ricky at the front desk to when we left four days later with a young staff member running down the road looking for a taxi booked for us this was a memorable stay. The staff, many of whom were young, were just delightful, polite and always smiling. A credit to the training they receive. Food on the breakfast buffet was five star in both quality, variety and freshness and the only dinner we had was superb. The room was clean when we arrived and serviced daily to the same standard. Cannot recommend more highly.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Lovely staff and amazing food. Being vegan, I sometimes find it difficult when travelling as a lot of hotels are not very progressive. Well done The Playford!!!! Food was incredible and the breakfast buffet was so fresh and beautifully presented.
