  • Excellent from check-in to check-out. Arriving late on our first night we were unable to appreciate the style and service of the hotel, however after an awesome nights sleep, where my partner chose his pillow,  we were met with a full breakfast buffet that quietly catered for gluten free. The hotel was relaxing and the service was exceptional.

  • Deciding to treat my sister to a night off for her birthday was undoubtedly the best idea I've had in years! The friendly, professional and accommodating staff definitely turned a good stay into a fantastic stay, and to indulge in a long breakfast was a highlight the most spectacular buffet that had it all.

  • 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.

  • There is nothing not to like about The Playford. The building itself is like a luxury mansion with beautiful fixtures and fittings. The rooms are all class, with nothing out of place. Plenty of room for relaxing, plus a wonderful marble bathroom. The restaurant and bar are superbly fitted out and the staff are extremely friendly and helpful.

  • The best. The best hotel we have stayed in. The decor, comfort and service were excellent.  Accessibility, respect, friendly approach of staff was appreciated. Food was unsurpassed. Tasted I have never experienced before. Thanks!!
