I have stayed at the Playford a few times. The parking is easy and well priced but the rooms are so well appointed and spacious. Ability to open a door and let some fresh air in and plenty of space to work at a desk which has both wireless ( also through out the hotel and usable on multiple devices)...

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...

The Art Nouveau touches make this hotel a stand out. We had wonderful 2 nights, our room was clean, we had 2 comfortable beds and the bathroom was luxurious. the block out curtains were great - we slept in with our 7yrds! The staff was very helpful and polite.

A beautiful Art Nouveau hotel in the heart of town - within walking distance of shops and restaurants. All the staff were wonderfully helpful. The room was well appointed and clean with a good range of hot drinks including our favourite Earl Grey tea! Really nice to have a room with a bath after several months of touring (only the...

Lovely Hotel, right in the centre of the city, We were there on a Monday and a lot of the local restaurants were closed. We wished we had eaten at the Hotel. The staff were very helpful, and the breakfast was excellent. They helped us with our hire car. Their car park is just across the road from the Hotel.

So OK, I understand the Art Deco isn't 1930's but who cares? nice hotel with a good "buzz". Excellent meal in the restaurant well worth the money. Easy walk into main shopping centre and the Adelaide Oval in the opposite direction.

The Playford is a nice hotel in a good location however during my short stay it did not meet the standards of other hotels within the MGallery collection. Check-in was a slow process and due to my stay occurring just prior to Christmas, I was constantly reminded that the restaurant was 'very busy' and I needed to make any reservations...

There was nothing that we could fault about this hotel. The standards are way up there from excellent customer service to spotlessly clean. Stayed three nights , fab location easy walking distance to town centre, bars and restaurants. Really easy for commuting. Just a great experience in Adelaide mad even better by a truly lovely hotel. Well done The Playford.

We stayed only one night but thoroughly enjoyed our visit. Our room was very spacious and well decorated. All staff were very friendly and efficient. Both dinner and breakfast in the restaurant were very good and a very varied choice. We had a light lunch in the bar area which was very good. The bar was busy with many regulars.
