I was visiting Adelaide with some family for a one-night getaway and to watch Carlton play Port Adelaide at Adelaide Oval. I chose the Playford due to its great reviews on TripAdvisor and proximity to Adelaide Oval itself (10-15 minute walk). Staying at the Playford turned out to be the highlight of our trip without question! The Playford is a...

Such a lovely hotel and lovelier staff. The bathroom must be brand new, it's stunning, the bed and pillow dreamily comfortable and the room spacious. I wanted for nothing except maybe a nicer outlook but that just comes with the design of the building leaving the 'inside' rooms with a private but average outlook - no big deal really unless...

Sadly we only spent one night at this lovely hotel. We had a spa suite that was perfect. Very clean and comfy sitting area meant my husband could watch the football while I had a nap. Caring and knowledgeable staff made the visit even better. Highly recommended.

20 minutes door to door from the airport and greeted by Reece and Blake who despite t being Sunday night were all smiles. Check in was quick and the room was AMAZING. One of the Loft Suites are a must (I was in 701). Barely heard a sound from outside, the spiral staircase was easy to get up and down...

I recently stayed here during my first visit to Adelaide. Wonderful service. Comfortable rooms. Beautiful lobby, bar, and restaurant. Wifi worked perfectly and the concierge and door guys were delightful to talk to for tips around town. The Playford restaurant is also worth a visit. Delicious. To me, Adelaide is a college town with a sporting spirit. Weekends, nights before...

Having spent four nights in mediocre accommodation in Brisbane was most relieved to stay in this comfortable hotel! What a relief to at last find a truly superb hotel, great bathroom and spacious bedroom. Slept like a log!

We stayed here for two nights and were extremely impressed with front service staff and beautiful olde world character of this hotel. It is very Art Deco and the cocktail bar was impressive. Rooms were clean and for the location very quiet. Would highly recommend anyone to stay here. They will welcome you and appreciate your choice of their hotel.

The Playford enjoys an excellent location in the center of the city, with easy walking distance to many attractions such as the South Australian Museum, restaurants, and shops. The room was comfortable and the bathroom space very good. The room was located on an interior lightwell, and looked out at a block of apartment windows. We had a light breakfast...

We stayed on a couple of occasions over the course of a week in Adelaide city and enjoyed the proximity of the hotel to the local attractions. Walking distance to the oval for football and just up the road from the museum, art gallery and all the other heritage buildings. Close to Rundle mall for shopping and excellent places to...

This is a good hotel. It is quite centrally located, has a 24 hour front desk service; the rooms are smart and clean and the service efficient. My only slight quibble is its lack of a middle priced coffee shop, by which I mean that it has a small quite pricey restaurant but otherwise only a lounge where snacks are...
