  • The Playford is a traditional hotel, not one of those 'cookie cutter' hotels that are so common these days. The Art Deco feel immediately relaxes you, with that feeling of older, grander times.

  • Welcomed back by the awesome staff at The Playford is always a delight. Buffet breakfast is the best in Adelaide.

  • Just a lovely experience. Whipped across the road to the Convention Centre. The food was delightful and fresh. Was like taking a trip back through the eras to pure luxury.

  • MGallery hotels are like your home away from home in a different city. The staff are always extremely helpful and cheerful. Our suite was very quiet and spacious. The beds were so very comfortable, giving an excellent night's sleep. The buffet breakfast is delicious and served in opulent surrounds. If you are looking for a great place to stay in Adelaide look no further.

  • Wonderful as it is every time we stay for leisure and business. Always very welcoming and feels like home away from home.
