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.

Very comfortable room and newly refurbished bathroom. Service was excellent - all staff were very friendly and helpful. Hotel was very well situated for all the main city sights. A bonus for us was that the Hertz car hire office is next door, so it was easy to pick our car up at the end of our stay. Highly recommend...

The Playford has simple spacious rooms in a great location on North Terrace. The staff is super friendly and offered great service. It also offered incredible value over the Christmas break for our SA getaway. The pool and gym areas was also pretty nice.

This is a great location but the area just around the corner is bar and strip club district!
