We recently stayed at the Playford for two nights. The lobby is impressive and our deluxe room was spacious and well equipped with a comfortable seating area. The fact that we had no outlook whatsoever did not detract from our satisfaction. All the staff were extremely helpful. Haydn (the concierge) deserves a special mention. He was an extremely charming and...

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.

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,...
