“We will be back”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 June 2014

This hotel makes is great. It is thoughtfully and creatively furnished. The rooms are large and well laid out and decorated with a comfy bed, nice sofa, decent TV and desk and a nice bathroom with good products. The room service was great.

The inclusion of a coffee machine is nice as was the complimentary coffee downstairs

The bar downstairs is also nice and has a good a la care breakfast offering...

It is well positioned in the city - a great location! short walk to shopping and restaurants and the Adelaide oval.

The staff were very friendly and efficient - we will be back when back min Adelaide.

After being welcomed by the Winged Victory of Samothrace, I guess it's no surprise to find a Michelangelo abutting the swimming pool. The service was world standard, matching the art work. The room, furnishings and cable TV up to 5 star standard. If you want a view best to ask.

This hotel makes you feel special. It is grand and well decked out. The rooms are large and nicely organised. A very comfy bed which frankly is so often not the case, nice sofa, decent TV and desk and a nice bathroom with good products.

The inclusion of a coffee machine is nice and the room service i ordered was very efficient and of a very high standard!

The bar downstairs is also nice and has a good a la care breakfast offering...

I have stayed here years ago and enjoyed it again. Plus such a great location! short walk to Rundell Mall and Adelaide oval.

I will be back!

Booked into the Playford during our first visit to Adelaide. Nicely appointed room, excellent service staff. A particularly fine restaurant with an impressive wine list, at reasonable prices. Parking was $30 per day through the valet service. Coffees in the lobby in the morning.

I travel to Adelaide for work about 3 or 4 times a year, love the Playford - it does so many things right!

The rooms are well appointed and the bathrooms large, clean & modern. The gym is pretty good for a hotel gym, and they have a pool, with spa and sauna as well - so make sure you bring your gym gear and swimmers! And I have to mention the breakfast is one of the best buffet breakfast bars I have experienced, great selection of hot & cold foods - yes it is $35 but when work is paying for the trip I'm happy to enjoy it!

The only things to be aware of is that there are a LOT of business travellers to this hotel - if you're looking for a family friendly vibe I think there are better options out there for you. But for a business traveller this place is great - and it's right next door to the Strathmore pub (try the Stonegrill steak!!) and also the Casino is across the rd so you always go for a flutter if you're stuck for something to do on a weeknight :-)

Room Tip: Ask for an upgrade - the staff will do what they can if the hotel isn't full
