  • Firstly, thank you much for all your work in helping me put together this event, the general feedback from people who attended was that they had a wonderful time and enjoyed everything, especially the food!

  • Thank you so much for dinner last night. The food was sensational and it was great to be able to taste a number of different things. The entrée was the stand out for me, especially the cauliflower dish, it was beautiful.

  • The meeting went really well thank you. Your team were great and we were very happy. The food was delicious and the dietary requirements all sorted before we arrived. Natalie was just lovely and flexible with timing when the speakers finished earlier than planned.

  • The staff were amazing and so helpful. The room looked beautiful and the food was delicious. I was so impressed with the attitude of every staff member from the minute I walked in. I’ve organised the Christmas party event for our group over the last 6 years and The Playford was the most organised and really standards apart from others on Customer Service.

  • I wanted to take the opportunity to thank you and your entire team for the amazing experience we had for our iachieve conference.
