“Pleasantly Surprised, Just Keeps getting Better”
Reviewed 26 May 2014

I have stayed here a number of times over the last 10 years. I stayed here last week. The service and staff were fantastic, the breakfast truly deserves all the positive comments and awards.
The rooms are well appointed, clean and quiet. The welcome letter, room upgrade, coffee voucher and $10 voucher rewarding me for staying again was a real surprise.
This hotel is in a great location for shopping, going to convention centre or to the newly renovated Adelaide oval.

Room Tip: Try to get a room on a higher floor

I recently spent a night at the Playford and it ticked almost all of the boxes. The staff stood out the most with all appearing to be engaged with their roles. The room was great and the gym although a bit dated was more than adequate. Last suggestion for the hotel...please bring back the Cadbury/kitkat combination to the mini bar!

Stayed for 4 nights to attend a conference across the road. Great location. Not too far to walk into town and there is a tram line out the front. The rooms were nice though my view was of an adjacent building. Did not eat at this hotel though did have a few drinks at the lobby bar which was nice and was in full swing on the Saturday night. This was my second stay here and I would definitely stay here again.

Almost directly across the road from the Adelaide train station, a stone's throw from a tram stop, a block to Hindley Street and just a few minutes stroll to Rundle Mall a handier spot for visit to Adelaide would be hard to find. All the hotel and restaurant staff were friendly and attentive. The room was spacious and the bed very comfortable. We enjoyed our three nights in Adelaide and the Playford immensely and will definitely go back there when next we're in town....

This is a superb hotel. The staff are really friendly and helpful. The rooms are very clean and the beds lovely and comfortable. The Playford is close to everything, but the rooms are quiet. The restaurant found a table for our family group at short notice and the staff coped with skill and good humour with a fidgety 15 month old. The food was of excellent quality. I especially loved the truffle chicken. We also tried out the bar food, and again it was very good. The serving sizes were quite large for bar food. Parking is in a paid car park across the street. We stayed for three nights, and would be delighted to return to this classically beautiful hotel.
