We have visited Adelaide many times before but had never stayed at anything like the Playford.We arrived early to drop our bags ( mid morning ) & to our surprise & delight our room was ready. As we had got up very early to catch our flight from Sydney it was great to be able to recharge our batteries in... More

We stayed at the Playford for a conference visit and almost everything about this hotel is excellent. The staff were immensely friendly and helpful, and the hotel was impeccably clean. There is a pillow menu, which is always amusing and I'm sure very handy for those with particular preferences. The only downside was that our 'view' was into a service... More

After not visiting the Playford for some time, I was really interested to see if much had changed, but thankfully it had not. I once again thoroughly enjoyed my stay, and dinner in the restaurant was excellent. I must say the location is great, the service was excellent and overall the Playford certainly does not disappoint at all. Highly recommended.

Stayed for 4 nights as an Accor Club member. Check in was very efficient without fuss and although there was a slight descrepency in the bill upon checkout the issues was resolved without fuss. Breakfast was very good as was dinner

I honestly cannot recall a hotel in which all the staff members seemed so happy and excited to work. Their enthusiasm was genuine and the customer service was truly exceptional. The lobby and rooms felt a bit dated although by no means run down. Reminded me a bit of old school Vegas - lots of gold and huge chandeliers. The... More

Exceptional staff, the rooms were very high standard and the food was great. Only stayed two nights for work but I look forward to coming back. Hot tip on the room service, order the steak with a side of chips!

I love staying at the Playford. The staff couldn't do more to assist you. The rooms are amazing. The spa suits on the 6th floor are spectacular to have two rooms to move and a stunning balcony to drink in the North Terrace views. The restaurant is amazing and recommend getting the degestation dinner where after a few questions the... More
