  • Our experience was a cut above the rest. Fantastic hotel and all of your staff made our stay much more pleasant than we expected. Bottle your formula and keep it going, it works!

  • 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.

  • The Playford is one of the best hotels you will experience. The rooms are beautifully appointed, the bed is incredibly comfortable and the restaurant provides excellent food and wine. Hotel staff are polite and responsive to your every need. The location is central to shopping, food and entertainment venues so there is no shortage of things to do.

  • Our breakfast here was a special experience and was a superb buffet. The restaurant has a very elegant old world charm. This is a buffet with a difference and a gourmet breakfast experience....would highly recommend.

  • My favourite hotel in Adelaide CBD. We had the best stay at Playford. The staff are amazing and always go above and beyond for their customers. The bed was so comfortable and the bathroom was spacious and the shower was amazing. We will definitely be coming back to stay.
