Very convenient to everything with own bar and restaurant. Bed was comfortable, room clean, very comfortable and quiet. The staff were very helpful at check in and organising a taxi for us for early the next morning.

We stayed here in a twin room during our visit to Womadelaide. The room was clean and spacious, the beds were comfortable and the amenities very good. There were plenty of hangers in the closet, a rare event, and we had everything we needed for our stay. The staff were friendly and helpful. And it's centrally located on North Terrace....

We love this hotel so have stayed here a few times. The staff are so friendly and helpful, the rooms are always spotless and they have the most comfortable beds.

The Loft Apartment on the top floor was beautiful. From the moment we arrived we were taken care of. From the fast & efficient valet parking, friendly check in staff and a beautiful, well appointed room. Anything we needed was taken care of.

We greatly enjoyed our stay at The Playford. The location was central to all our needs. Rooms were excellent. Staff were friendly, although breakfast service could have been more efficient.The Accor Advantage worked well.

Even though the Playford is billed as a five star hotel it really isn't. Maybe 4 at a stretch. The hotel is pleasant but quite tired. We had a loft room as an upgrade but it was quite claustrophobic as it looked right into a wall. The stairs from the loft bed to the bathroom downstairs were a real challenge...
