Booked a Mt Lofty suite only to find the bathroom is not on the same floor as the bedroom.The bedroom is up 2 sections of wooden stairs. Because of the split level the room did not seem spacious. We were not comfortable with nightly trips up and down the stairs to visit the bathroom. I feel the setout should be...

Lovely hotel, beautiful decor and very friendly accommodating staff. The hotel is in a very good location close to Rundle mall. Suites are very clean with fantastic blackout curtains for a late sleep in. Highly recommended.

What a combination.. 1) A great shower (the best I have ever had) 2) Room service of slow cooked duck & mushroom pie was to die for not only was it a great combination, but the pastry was beautiful! .... worth every dollar.

It was just one late night at this central Adelaide hotel. We arrived late off the plane. The staff were very welcoming. Good spacious room on the first floor. Very clean. This was a Friday night people were clearly enjoying themselves which resulted in a little noise in the early hours. A superb breakfast in the restaurant was a good...

Always great to stay at this hotel. It was our 7th visit and the staff are terrific. Rooms are very comfortable. Try a suite you won't be disappointed. Also aim to have the very special buffet breakfast. Delicious! The location is great with plenty of different eateries. Highly recommend The Playford in Adelaide. We will be back next year.

We stayed at The Playford for 4 nights to celebrate our 10th wedding anniversary. We stayed in a King Loft Suite which was beautifully decorated. The staff were all very friendly and willing to help with any matter. We had the degustation dinner at the restaurant which was amazing and worth every cent. Fantastic central location close to the tram,...

This hotel reminds you of a luxury hotel from a hundred years ago - like Hotel Montleone in New Orleans or Grant Hotel in San Diego. It is around twenty minutes from the airport, and the taxi fare is about A$25 (dirt cheap compared to Sydney). The concierge was particularly helpful and polite. He also made dinner bookings, and our...

I recently stayed here for 1 night while on business. The hotel is in a great part of the city, on North Terrace, with easy access to the tram to Glenelg beach and close to some lovely Victorian era buildings. We had a standard room on the first floor but ours backed on to a semi private courtyard with water...

From the minute we walked into this hotel and the concierge took my case I knew we were going to be looked after. I cannot fault the service from this excellent hotel. Every single member of staff was friendly and extremely helpful, nothing was too much trouble and they were always smiling. Our room had every comfort would ever need....
