A one night business trip and very happy with the hotel. The rooms were terrific, very well laid out, very clean and everything you need for a stay. Staff were very good and all of the check in and check out went very well. A good location and a good hotel.

We arrived in our 4wd after a stint of free camping on the Nullabour for a bit of rest and recuperation. Unfortunately our raised suspension swags and spare tyres housed on the roof made for an impossible valet park! The hotel staff turned a fretful situation into a solution with a quick rearrangement (entirely dismantling the contents of our roof...

Good service. Had an enjoyable stay. Just 10 minutes walk to the mall and shopping area. Should try the chocolate mousse from the hotel restaurant. The spa, pool, gym and sauna open 24 hours. Had a relaxing time at this hotel.

My husband and I stayed here for a date night. Our first one in 3 years since our little one was born and The Playford didn't disappoint! The girl who checked us in at reception, Nicki, was lovely and so very friendly. Our room was upgraded and was awesome! All the staff we dealt with were so very friendly and...

I spent a few nights in a loft suite last week; very comfortable, spotlessly clean and with that extra room needed for a longer stay. I would say it was 4+ stars rather than 5 due to age and also the inconvenience of the bathroom being on the lower floor, something i didnt think about when booking but did after...

Stayed at the Playford for 4 nights for the first time. Can not say a bad word about it. The staff behind the desk from the time we arrived, Concierge, staff behind the bar - special mention to Julian who looked after us on the first night to the breakfast staff were all outstanding. We originally booked a spa room...

I often visit Adelaide for business and always stay here. Its one of our company's preferred hotels and all my colleagues echo my sentiments. Beautiful Art Deco theme is pleasing but it really is the clean rooms and well kept hallways that always impress me. It gets better when you go for dinner. Very good wine selections and a very...

The Playford was booked on the strength of other reviews, and it did not disappoint. The room was extremely comfortable, well-appointed and had everything you would expect. The breakfast, however, was its most note worthy feature - a buffet breakfast of healthy and indulgent options, temptingly presented.

Our stay was great was start to finish. We were able to check in early on our arrival into our Loft suite via the friendly check in staff, run out the door and make it to the fantastic market with plenty of time to spare. Our suite was spacious with a little kitchen area, including microwave, fridge and coffee machine....
