Three days before our arrival at the Playford we received a call from Justin checking on our 2 night upcoming stay. Justin was very courteous and friendly. Justin offered us a Terrace Room which we were very happy to accept. Check in was swift and welcoming. The room was lovely and the terrace was a big atrium style garden with...

The Playford is a decent place to stay in Adelaide but lacks a personal touch. The rooms are well appointed and the bath products are very ample and luxurious. The location is central and served us well for our one night stopover.

I'm a silver member of the hotel. Before I checked in, I have emailed the Hotel confirming my dates of stay and reservation numbers of rooms and the request for staying in the same rooms for the 2 consecutive nights paid because the 2 nights were booked with different reservation no. To my surprise, when I was out for tour...

We traveled as a family of three with our 7 year old son and had a very good experience at The Playford. I found the service particularly good. The concierge staff was extremely helpful - some great ideas for our trip to the Flinders Ranges. This is not and does not claim to be a design or destination hotel. It...

Spent a week at the Playford as part of our 6 week trip around Australia. It was located in the centre of the city and the tram stopped just outside the hotel entrance, everything major was just a short walk, or tram ride away. The hotel had a really nice feel to it when you walk in, the lobby area,...

My husband booked a Queen Spa Suite for us. We were hoping for another fantastic stay at The Playford but......... We arrived at 13.10 Saturday looking forward to a nice meal maybe in room service, as I had emailed ahead of stay to Vivien Scopelitis ( Executive Assistant) for the menu. On arriving at the Reception we were greeted by...

I loved my stay here. I was attracted by the architecture, the grandness of the entrance and the fact there was a pool and spa which I wished I used more. The staff were lovely, respectful and polite and very helpful and welcoming. My room was comfortable, I would have liked a city view but next time I will have...
