The Playford on North Terrace is an excellent place to stay. The amenities are excellent, and a delightful and welcoming staff make this a friendly place to stay. A car park is nearby and with the side street as the main entrance, off North Terrace, it has easy access. We had 7 friends for dinner one evening and the staff...

We stayed here in October 2016 whilst touring Australia and this proved to be one of our favourite hotels of the trip. It is well situated, close to central Adelaide, and is obviously very popular with locals as the bar area was always busy with people dropping in for coffee/drinks. This gave it a lovely buzzy feel. Additionally the staff...

This wonderful boutique hotel is very well located to venues for the Adelaide Festival and WOMAdelaide. The tram stop is located in front of the hotel so you can travel easily within the City limit free of charge. All the staff are very friendly and helpful.

The bar and reception areas are comfortable peaceful places to sit. There are plenty of staff on hand to help but my one niggle is that a small number of the...

I stayed here with a friend for 3 nights in a twin room. It was very comfortable, nice amenities and friendly staff. The location was great, easy walk to almost everywhere. The bar was lovely with comfortable furniture and nice wine list. We had the buffet breakfast one morning, compliments of the hotel (due to a luggage mix-up that was...

The Playford is central to Adelaides Rundle Mall - the hub of Adeleide CBD. Nicely refurbished room but not suitable for disabled. I booked a disabled room but when we arrived we were not in this room. We were moved to a room that was newly refurbished and to my amazement (without asking) we werr bought up a shower mat....

I am not the most nimble of people and I found getting into the shower which is above the bath very difficult. It is quite a high step into the bath and would not be recommended for someone who would struggle with this. Otherwise the room was spacious and clean. The staff were polite, helpful and with just the right...
