Stayed some months ago at The Playford and I have to say that it was just perfect! From the moment I walked in to be greeted by the concierge to the lovely lady at reception who managed to arrange my early check-in. I stressed that it wasn't necessary as I only wanted to drop off my bag but it was...

(Disclosure: I tend to stay at Accor properties when travelling) Right it's decided - there really is nowhere else for me in Adelaide than The Playford - what a delightful hotel, boutique in fashion and just across the road from all the major event centres (Adelaide Convention Centre, and the Interconti - where I was). But it's so much better...

We recently stayed at the Playford for one night on a Sunday following a weekend in the Barossa before heading back to Sydney. Coming from a 5 star hotel in the Barossa (The Louise) to this 5 star hotel, i'm afraid it just didn't stack up. The highlights were the friendly reception and bar staff and also the waterfall shower...

A classic old hotel with olde world charm, staff very helpful, courteous and friendly. Breakfast is sensational. Room lacked charm, motel style although a step up with room safe coffee making and mini bar. Rain shower head into a bathtub not the safest way to shower. Overall a classic 1920's style hotel with decor to suit well located on North...

On the minus side - the whole hotel needs refurbishment. My room (for which I paid a premium) was advertised as rear of building, but was right on North Terrace (noisy). I like honest advertising. On the plus side - most staff very friendly and helpful, my in-room pizza was better than at most hotels, and it's just across the...

Booked three nights through a website. Reduced prices. Extremely surprised at the quality of the room for the price I paid. Lovely furniture. Really big comfy bed with a choice of pillows. The service at this hotel was exceptional. The staff couldn't have been more friendly or helpful. The lounge bar downstairs is a great place to wind down. The...

We have stayed at the Playford many times and each time it's a pleasure. The staff are great, polite and helpful. The rooms are large and well appointed. The breakfast is simply awesome!! And importantly, everything is always clean!! Location is also unbeatable. The best place to stay in Adelaide without doubt.
