“Stay here and you're off to a great start in Adelaide”
Reviewed 21 April 2014

We stopped here for two nights after driving from Melbourne to Adelaide on the Great Ocean Road and were not disappointed.

The hotel rooms were incredibly spacious with large bathrooms and very clean. There was free use of the swimming pool and gym which we took advantage of.

Surprisingly the food was very affordable (if you stuck to the bar menu and not the restaurant) and the house wines were great at happy hour. Staff were all friendly and the concierge service very helpful.

A great base to explore Adelaide on foot from with lovely restaurants within a few hundred yards. We'd definitely stay here again.

Very nice experience at the Sebel Playford for a wine tour visit of Adelaide. Can't believe how well reasonably priced this hotel is. I would upgrade to the suite as my friends have done in the past as it's only a little bit more than the normal room rate.

Room Tip: Upgrade to a suite.

Reviewed 11 April 2014

Stayed there during a conference in the Convention Center on the other side of the street. Reception was very friendly and gave me an upgrade to a studio room, since I stayed for 6 nights. I arrived at night, so I did not realize until the next morning that the room was facing towards a pretty dark inner courtyard. So staying therenit is hard to find out wether it is sunny or cloudy. Anyhow - I did not spend much time there anyhow. The room was spaceous and clean. Little kitchenette in the entrance area with a nespresso style machine (and two cups complimentary each day). Bedroom was Separate with extra TV-Set, large and comfortable bed and enough space for clothes and suitcase. Living room has an easy chair with foot bench, little dinig table/desk and a sofa. The style of the whole place is pretty Art Deco and has a cozy athmosphere, but it is quite dark except for bar and restaurant which do get some daylight.
All in all it is for Australia a quite nice hotel, though heftily priced. Payed 230 AUD through the conference. My partners rented a whole house with 3 bedrooms, two bathrooms and huge dijing/living room/kitchen for 180 AUD per day.
