This is easy. Great city hotel, great service, friendly employees who went out of their way for you. Room was modern and comfortable with great internet service. Was directed for dinner to Parliamenta Bistro a block away for a really nice, well priced dinner.

We arrived in Adelaide on a busy weekend to find out other hotel booking had been cancelled by my work's corporate travel company. We were lucky enough to secure the last room in the Playford Hotel. The staff, aware of our long day and travel mix-up, were awaiting our arrival and we received VIP treatment from the moment our taxi...

We stayed at the hotel last weekend, it was the first time we had stayed at an M gallery before however it is listed as M gallery by Sofitel so one would assume you'd be in safe hands. Check in was smooth, we got the rooms a little early. For some reason standard check in is 3pm here. I've never...

The Loft apartments are beautiful, spacious and a little unique, Spa could be a little bigger but as there was a pool and spa downstairs, no real concern. Breakfast was fantastic and to be able to see a working Chef and kitchen is great. Service from check in to check out was excellent, As an Accor member, very fast and...

We stayed two nights at the Playford in a standard room. We found the service of all staff to be exceptional, professional and friendly without being overbearing. We have stayed in numerous hotels over the years, some a lot more expensive/prestigious, and we rate our stay at the Playford near the top particularly considering we paid about $150 per night....

Close to all the places you want to go, the river, the stadium , art galleries and more, and just a short walk to the markets and restaurants in Gouger St. Room was a little dark , no light over couch meant reading on the bed but it was a comfy bed! We only ate snacks, they were only OK,...

First impressions definitely last and the memory of a beautiful lobby still resonates with me and for many others I'm sure. I stayed at this hotel for two nights, and the room was clean, well equipped and had quality furnishings. Overall, I was very impressed with the hotel, but just note that if you're driving or hiring a car, parking...
