Room was very spacious with all the amenities you would expect for a 4-5 star hotel. Extensive information about activities and services the hotel and...

Travelling for business, we chose The Playford due to its central location. It didn't disappoint. As we had purchasing to do for work, we were right near all the shops that we needed. We had a hire car and parked it across the road at the Playford car park - easy to do with specially reserved car parks. We didn't...

We like older hotels that have character and this one does. The bar area is lovely. And the location is excellent. The breakfast is quite expensive and so we went next door to the Mercure for the same breakfast at half the cost. Staff are pleasant. Sadly we were given Room 211 which had a wall about 3 feet from...

We went for dinner and the good was delicious. Service was also great. It's a hotel restaurant and it also does buffet breakfast and that was obvious, so while it was nice I wouldn't necessarily recommend The Playford for it's vibe/ambience. In my opinion you can get meals which are just as nice but in a nicer setting.

We stayed for four nights. The Hotel is very nice. We had the one bedroom spa suite. Very spacious. We particularly enjoyed the pod coffee maker and tea set up. The complimentary real milk for coffee was a nice touch. The general area is a bit seedy with convenience stores and fast food restaurants but there are plenty of nice...
