Arrived early and struggling with bags. Staff invaded us, took bags and made sure we got a room straight away. Room is spacious and the air con silent. Bags delivered in a few minutes and the same in reverse when we had to leave. Loved the lounge bar for people watching!

I have recently spent a one night stay here and cannot recommend this hotel highly enough. The service is impeccable from the porter, to the reception, bar and restaurant staff. Nothing was too much trouble. The room was very clean and comfortable and I had a magical nights sleep which is rare for me the best of times. The restaurant...

Celebrating a significant birthday for the FIL we were booked for the 9.30am brunch sitting. We had one coeliac in our group so emailed and phoned the restaurant to make sure they could cater for her. Two conversations confirmed it would be good and they understood cross contamination risks. We arrived and the head server showed our daughter what was...

Nice spacious room with an opening door/window for fresh air but no real view as such. Good size "bar" fridge which seems to be few & far between these days. A microwave would have been a good addition as it seems from other reviews that some rooms do have these (we stayed in a Playford Guest Room). Friendly staff &...

After a short taxi ride from the airport we arrived at this ideally located hotel. Check in was quick and our baggage was brought to our room. We were given a room upgrade to a suite (room 320). Had everything you could want in a modern hotel room - except a view - our was of the multistlorey car park!...

My husband and I spent 2 nights here and would recommend this hotel as we found the staff, service and room to be top class. The added bonus was the availability of off street parking(at a cost). My only critisism would be that the parking procedure needs to be explained at check-in - validation of ticket. We dined in the...

The Playford Adelaide is in a fantastic location, a short walk to the mall, plenty of restaurants, cafes, the casino and nightlife, and easy access to the beaches either via public transport or car. The hotel is lovely, the staff helpful, the rooms clean and nicely appointed, and the amenities pleasant. The only downside I can think of would be...

My wife and I stayed at The Playford Adelaide recently and it was a truly memorable experience. On arrival we were given a free upgrade to a suite at the front of the building.
