  • What made our stay so brilliant were the extremely well trained staff. Management have absolutely got it right with how they have trained their staff. I often find these more expensive hotels the staff are often snotty and try to belittle me to come across as super posh. But EVERY staff member we came across was AMAZING. They were friendly, accommodating, they made us feel as though we belonged there and they seemed genuinely excited for us that this was our get away. From the front desk, to the cleaning staff, they were lovely and THIS WILL ABSOLUTELY MAKE ME RETURN.

  • Glamorous, professional, special. From check in to check out we felt we were staying somewhere special; a real treat.

  • We had the pleasure of staying at The Playford for three nights. The staff were extremely friendly, efficient and helpful. We used the bar and the restaurant and the food was outstanding, the service excellent, the bar well stocked and accommodating our late needs.

  • Super boutique hotel. We loved our stay here. It's central; staff service is excellent; breakfasts are the best we've ever had, with a different variety of foods, freshly cooked, and having extra ingredients added to make them that bit different. We didn't want to leave!

  • This quaint, gorgeous hotel has street appeal and old world with a modern elegant style twist... when we arrived we were instantly greeted with smile and "can we help you with anything else" attitudes from staff... we had breakfast... the food was plentiful with many choices suiting all tastes and cultures plus the coffee was perfect...  Thank you Playford...
