As an Accor Platinum member I am selective when it comes to choosing properties for our stays. We recently had a one night stop over with our colleagues in Adelaide and selected the Playford due to Trip Advisor reviews. The reservation staff I dealt with were superb at all times. The great features of the hotel were: upgrade for our...

As soon as you get to the Playford, you get a sense of luxury! From the opulent chandeliers and statues to the inviting swimming pool and spa. I found that every member of staff we came across were super friendly and made our stay even more enjoyable. I did find the room facilities to be very old fashioned. The Phillips...

The Playford is a well-appointed hotel. There's clearly a high standard here in terms of quality of both the facility and the staff. The rooms are spacious and comfortable. What could be improved? The brunch was pretty crowded and seemed to run out of items frequently. And the furniture in the lobby, while classic looking, isn't too comfortable. All in...

We stayed here to attend Womadelaide so didn't get the time to use the facilities or really make the most of it, but the service was great, the bed really comfortable and the location great for what we needed.

A quality hotel in a very convenient location. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Has quite good equipment in the fitness centre and a good lap pool. We didn't make use of the restaurant and only went to the bar once as we were visiting for WOMADelaide and spent most of our time in Botanic Park. My only negative comment...

Arrived early and struggling with bags. Staff invaded us, took bags and made sure we got a room straight away. Room is spacious and the air con silent. Bags delivered in a few minutes and the same in reverse when we had to leave. Loved the lounge bar for people watching!

I have recently spent a one night stay here and cannot recommend this hotel highly enough. The service is impeccable from the porter, to the reception, bar and restaurant staff. Nothing was too much trouble. The room was very clean and comfortable and I had a magical nights sleep which is rare for me the best of times. The restaurant...

Celebrating a significant birthday for the FIL we were booked for the 9.30am brunch sitting. We had one coeliac in our group so emailed and phoned the restaurant to make sure they could cater for her. Two conversations confirmed it would be good and they understood cross contamination risks. We arrived and the head server showed our daughter what was...
