  • Consistent with the excellent levels of attention, style and comfort we now know to be provided by MGallery hotels.

  • We enjoyed the breakfast at this hotel. There is an egg chef who will cook your eggs the way you want them. We could have eaten many fruits, nuts, yoghurts, cheeses, meats, bacon, eggs, tomatoes etc and even churros and various sauces. There were various breads including sourdough bread. They source local SA foods and choose organic produce also.

  • 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.

  • Staff were extremely helpful, friendly and nothing was too much of a problem. They anticipated your needs and delivered exceptional service from the moment we arrived. Food and drinks were excellent.

  • Your staff were lovely and very friendly in both reception and the eating area. The room was super nice and loved the touch of the pod coffee machine. Beautiful toiletries. I travel a lot for work and yours is the nicest I have come across.
