I always choose The Playford for my monthly client visit to Adelaide - it's in a great location, the team are wonderful and the restaurant to die for! I've just had my 20th stay and it makes being away from home so much easier - the rooms are very spacious and comfortable, you won't be sorry you chose this hotel.

The service at The Playford is 5 star. We were able to get into the room as soon as we arrived at 10.30am. The concierge was very helpful & informative about a wine tour. The room we had didn't have a balcony so I asked if there were any available. I was shown a beautiful room with a balcony that...

Excellent hotel in a great location with super helpful staff. The rooms are lovely and the food is of a very high standard. I was given an upgrade which made the stay even better. This is the 6th time I have stayed at this hotel.

Enjoyed 2 seperate overnight stays here and couldn't fault the hotel or the service on either occasion. In room dining and restaurant were both reasonably priced and tastier than at most similar hotels. I really enjoyed the stay and the comfort level of the bed was definitely a highlight after roughing it out in the remote regions.

Stayed on 3 floor in north facing terrace room. Large room with tiled floors, 80s bling with slow wi fi. Overpriced at $350 pn. Did not eat in Art Nouveau style lobby cafe. Gym and pool in basement looked very average.

My wife and I had the privilege to stay in a loft apartment at the MGallery in South Australia on Saturday the 29th of April. This room and its benefits provides great value to the customer with two televisions and cooking amenities. The room has a spa bath and a spacious bathroom. One of the best places to stay in...

I spent 4 days at the Playford for a conference and was very well looked after. My room was a 'deluxe king', and while it may not have been exceptional it had everything I needed including bathrobe/slippers, iron/ironing board, minibar, coffee machine with generous coffee pod allowance, opening windows overlooking a garden with water feature and excellent room service. My...

The room was ok, just ok nothing more. It wa clean and well presented but I was stuck at the back of the hotel in a room that was extremely dark overlooking a small lane way into another building less than 3-4 m away. The food in the restaurant was terrible, in fact I had to send my dinner back...

Another brilliant stay enjoyed by all guests in multiple rooms. A special mention to the duty manager Ricky for his professionalism and fantastic customer orientated service and attitude, cheers mate. Also a special mention to Brice behind the bar for mixing me up the most amazing scotch cocktail off the bat. Special skills to pull off an original classic like...

As one of the city’s premier hotels much is expected from the Playford and, in many ways, it delivers the goods. However, the experience may depend upon the room you occupy and our dark and gloomy standard king room was not an especially agreeable experience. The good: the operatic foyer, bar and restaurant areas made for a good first impression....
