We were on a 5 week tour of Australia staying in mixed accommodation ranging from 5 star branded hotels to boutique hosted bed and breakfasts and we have been amazed by that range of experiences, we have had. The Playford is ranked highly on TA and is apparently the top rated 5 star hotel in the area - we had...

We really enjoyed our stay. Adelaide is a great tourist city. I love the decoration of the playford having stayed here previously. Everything about it is very comfortable. The only complaint i have is the heatedpool was cold. Too cold for me to swim.

We found our stay at the Playford to be a great experience. Our spa suite was exceptionally clean, well appointed, very comfortable and really quiet. The bed was extremely comfortable, with a selection of pillows provided. The pod coffee machine was appreciated, and local art in the rooms was a nice touch. The staff were also friendly and helpful.

Recently found this a great place to stay in central Adelaide out of the madding crowd on North Terrace but close to the cultural precinct. The dijning room was top class and the breakfasts were the best I've had anywhere. Staff were extra friendly and helpful. The gym & basement pool were very accessible. It has a dazzling art nouveau...

We found the service really good at the Playford. Although I think they should email people who are going to be staying to say that you access the hotel from Victoria st. Was quite stressful arriving in Adelaide in a rental car and trying to find how to access the hotel. The room was nice, we got a suite which...

My husband and I had a pleasant stay at The Playford. We were disappointed when we arrived to have a room right outside of the lift (when we booked we put in a request for a quiet room away from the lift). We were advised the only rooms left were not in our room category... I would have thought as...

The friendliness, helpfulness and professionalism of the staff at The Playford are the best of any hotel that I've stayed in. In my experience, the gym here is also the best at a hotel. The rooms were very spacious and very comfortable.
