Stayed here for 2 nights with several friends to celebrate my birthday.

They immediately helped us with our luggage once we arrived and deliver it to our room. The Receptions explained everything clearly to us as well...

The Loft suite was amazing! It was a great sized room and felt very spacious. The highlight was the buffet breakfast in the morning. The best selection of hot and cold food, along with fresh fruit and freshly squeezed juices.

We enjoyed an overnight stay thanks to cashing in some Flybuys points! Staff were very friendly and helpful, the rooms were clean and comfortable and the hotel is central to everything! We were able to visit the Railway Station (to meet family members) the SA museum, Rundle Mall, and Adelaide Oval for a cricket match, all within walking distance. We...

Just a brilliant degustation meal as chosen by the clearly talented chef/s. Attentive and knowledgeable staff complement the experience. Give yourself a treat and book and just ask them to bring out the food, you will not be disappointed. This was our third visit in three months and each time was a worthwhile experience.

Tram across the road takes you directly to Glenelg, a lovely area with some wonderful waterfront dining to be had. The hotel has an old world charm and elegance about it, and is...

We were recommended The Playford and it did not disappoint, from the friendly greeting upon check in to the seamless transition between two bookings as Accor had kindly given me a €40 discount for the second night. We felt welcomed every time we entered with the such friendly staff making us feel at home! The room was comfortable and had...

The staff at the Playford really set this place apart - all seem to really enjoy and take pride in their work, and exude a genuine warmth towards guests. I stayed 2 nights in a Deluxe room which was very spacious, exceedingly well cleaned, and tastefully decorated with a very comfortable king bed. The shower was fantastic with both a...
