An engagement party can help to set the mood for the ultimate celebration of love and the union of two people. It can be an opportunity for two families to come together as one for the first time, to get to know each other and reflect on the bonds that they will share for years to come. For others, it’s a bringing together of close friends and immediate family now joined by two people, and sharing in their excitement for the wedding to come.

And still for others, it may be an opportunity to celebrate before taking off on an intimate island wedding – or even eloping on the other side of the globe! The reason for an engagement party may be unique but the motivation to celebrate remains constant: it’s a deeply personal way to bring together two families and loved friends of the bride and groom to be before they’re officially married.

If you’re new to arranging parties, it can be a little stressful and daunting. With the experienced team of event planners, restaurant staff and chefs at The Playford Hotel, your engagement celebration can be a personal expression of your commitment that runs seamlessly, allowing you to relax and enjoy the company of your guests and the complete experience.

No matter your reason for holding an engagement party or the number of guests you’re looking to accommodate, The Playford Hotel can help with intimate brunches through to elaborate dinners complete with staging and audio visual equipment.


Personalising Your Celebration 

For a smaller, more intimate celebration, The Playford Restaurant offers innovative, world-class cuisine in the comfort of Adelaide’s best luxury hotel. We source the finest South Australian ingredients to produce modern Australian cuisine that is perfectly balanced with an award winning wine list.

Alternatively, if your guest list is larger we also have the option of a private function room. We specialise in tailoring packages to suit your celebration, from a stand up cocktail style event to a champagne breakfast or a formal sit down lunch or dinner.

Our friendly and experienced team can organise the complete event or as little as you like, making is as easy as possible to enjoy your time celebrating with the most important people in your life.


Relax and Stay Overnight

Stay one night or stay the whole weekend! We have a range of accommodation room types and packages available to suit your every need.

Our Playford guestrooms offer a choice of one king or two queen beds (subject to availability), or our Studio Spa Suites have that extra touch of luxury featuring a separate living room to bedroom area, kitchenette facilities and a corner spa.

For the premium option The Playford Hotel also offers exclusive New York style Loft Suites. A split level layout provides a loft bedroom area with living space and spa bathroom on the lower floor. Both the Studio Spa Suites and Loft Suites also have the option to upgrade to North Terrace facing views, overlooking the picturesque tree-lined streetscape below.
