The Playford - MGallery by Sofitel
Ranked #4 of 56 Hotels in Adelaide
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 30 August 2014

Very nice hotel with an old Victorian feel for charm. The rooms were spacious and nice, and when considering the cost of a room it is exceptional value for money.
All the staff were really nice, and the service was excellent. I was staying with someone who was returning to Adelaide so cannot attest the surroundings as I had a guide, but highly recommend staying here.

This is a lovely hotel but I did expect more. It is rated a 5* property but I think it could do with a little refurbishment. The rooms themselves are great, but just starting to date a little bit, the reception area definitely needs some love, its a little underwhelming when you arrive.
In saying that, the service is excellent. Reception and concierge couldn't do more to help you. The staff in the bar were also delightful.
Rooms are good, beds are nice and comfortable. Each room has sliding doors you can open to a tiny Juliette balcony.
Good location and about a 10 minute walk to the main shopping area.

The central location is handy, the interiors are classy, but the reason I enjoyed the Playford so much was the people. Whoever is doing the recruiting and people management is doing a geat job. Or maybe just everyone in Adelaide is warm and friendly and helpful? Everyone I had dealings with was responsive, helpful, and efficient. And don't let me forget the breakfast - great choice and quality. I'm missing it already....

We had a lovely stay in Adelaide. The Playford is a quaint hotel. The rooms were excellent. The beds comfortable and we both slept very well (bedding is very important to us!).
We didn't spend too much time in the room due to activities, but overall we were happy.

The staff were very helpful. We would definitely return!
