We found this to be a very nice, good quality hotel, which lived up to the image of the MGallery brand. Rooms and services were exactly as portrayed. Reception and concierge staff we very good and well informed, as you would expect. Location is excellent, right in the heart of Adelaide, which is a relatively small city. We did not...

Whilst staying in Adelaide for a few nights (somewhere else), my wife & I found ourselves heading back to the lobby bar of this hotel on a couple of occasions. The staff are very professional & friendly. The decor could be described by some as being outdated, but the fancy light shades, chairs, tables & sculptures kind of made it...

We adored our stay here, we will definitely return. The staff are extremely accommodating, going out of their way to make sure all your needs are met. The rooms are spacious and well appointed. The location is great, you can walk to Adelaide oval, Rundle Mall and lots of eateries. We would highly recommend a stay here.

Although the lounge and lobby are a bit dated and could use an update, the rooms were quite nice and roomy. The staff was super-friendly and helpful. The best part of our stay was breakfast, what an unbelievable selection, including 5 varieties of fresh juices, healthy buffet choices and wonderful coffee. We had a later night dinner and the service...

The room was spacious and in good shape, with a comfortable king size bed. Only the shower was a bit difficult...

A boutique hotel, the Playford holds a special location on North Terrace, the cultural heart and high-end shopping district of Adelaide. Opulent rooms and very comfortable bedding. Service is professional and welcoming. Wifi works everywhere in the hotel, but is pretty slow. Highly recommended.

The place to stay in Adelaide. This hotel met and then exceeded all our expectations. I cannot recommend it highly enough. The staff were excellent, friendly and efficient. The facilities were of the first order. The only (minor) thing I would say is that the a la carte dinner menu was a little restricted on choice, but what we did...

My partner and I stayed for the night. Very happy with location and customer service. Rooms were extremely comfortable and quiet. We were on Level 4 close to the lift. Complementary coffees in the morning was a bonus.
