  • I had a lovely room, comfy bed, a magnifying makeup mirror, a gym with a bike,  a plug in hairdryer and gorgeous decoration. What's not to love?

  • Best hotel breakfast

  • I stayed for two nights and would definitely stay there again. I love the 'Art Nouveau' style of the building which adds character and warmth to the whole experience. The staff were always very friendly and attentive.

  • The Playford is one of the most beautiful hotels I have stayed at being classically decorated. The service was impeccable with friendly, helpful staff. My room was authentically gorgeous and spacious. The continental breakfast was exquisite with delicious fresh fruit and cereals and the homemade organic juices were full bodied and refreshing. The hotel is very central to the convention centre, train station and shopping.

  • Lovely historical building in an awesome location. Staff and service excellent.
