HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 22 January 2017 via mobile

We really enjoyed our visit to this hotel. The reception staff and concierge were very welcoming, helpful and efficient. The room was as to be expected from a hotel of this quality. The very comfortable bath was a bonus. The wi-fi was also excellent and included in our price. The position was extremely convenient; easy strolling distance to Rundle Mall...

I recently stayed for an interstate conference and stayed 3 nights. I was warmly welcomed and throughout my stay I experienced excellent customer service. I can't comment on the food as I did not eat at the hotel - I stayed during Fringe Festival and was there for a conference so due to the hotel's central location I was out...

Given the relatively high price per night of the hotel, I was expecting more than I got. The room had no real personality and was decorated with no real direction. The walls are a little to thin and I was able to hear conversations in the hall way and people opening and closing doors. We didn't eat in the restaurant...

We were upgraded to a so-called deluxe room, 529. We have a view of another building a few meters away. Room is dark even in daylight. Room otherwise nicely appointed, but had I known it would be like this, I would have stayed elsewhere, perhaps The Intercontiental. Bar area is enjoyable and hotel food and service above average.

Poor value for money.. the evening meals were better but not brilliant. When we departed early in the morning we ordered a taxi he evening before. No taxi. The...

The Playford is tastefully decorated, with impressive features set in quality surroundings. Rooms (ours was a Deluxe Room) are of a high standard with quality in-room facilities. The 'stars of the show' are the in-house staff, at reception, at the concierge desk, and in the bar area. They are friendly, warm, knowledgeable, approachable, and very well trained. Well done.

We booked through a website and received a confirmation that we had a reservation for a Playford room. On arrival we presented the printed confirmation but we were told that we had been allocated a standard room. The hotel staff showed us a document that they said showed that they were told we were booking a standard room. To their...

We stayed here to attend the Adelaide Fringe Festival. The hotel was convenient for the Garden of Unearthly Delights and also Hindmarsh Square. It was an easy walk to Rundle Mall and the Hertz rental was just next door. The service in the hotel was OK and even though the hotel itself is a little tired - it reminded me...
