  • Wow! I was here on my own for a conference and I just want to start by saying as soon as I stepped in the service was amazing. All the staff were always smiling and more than happy to help. I had a delicious dinner with the best dessert I have ever had. Big compliments to the chef for the amazing flavours on the plate. An unforgettable experience.

  • A memorable moment with outstanding service. We booked a Memorable Moments package at the Playford for our 2 year anniversary. Upon arrival staff went out of their way to assist us, taking our bags to our room for us while we checked in, a nice touch! The room was spacious, clean, comfortable, with a large spa and great balcony… The degustation at Windy Point was one of the best meals we've ever eaten, and to top it off we got to take home a little goody bag after our dinner, a wonderful surprise… In the morning, we arrived for breakfast and we were again so impressed. There was a huge selection of hot and cold food, that was freshly cooked with detox juice and other choices to accompany. The food was absolutely delicious, we would come back just for breakfast!! Checking out was a fast and easy process, and we were helped to load our bags into our car, another nice touch… I would recommend the Playford to anybody who is looking for some time away with their partner. Exceptional service and they really go out of their way to make you have a wonderful stay. Thank you!

  • 5 star all the way. Some of the best food I've had in Adelaide.

  • Excellent service, good location, excellent healthy and local food choices.

  • 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.
