We used our ACCOR membership in Adelaide and so stayed 1 night at the Playford in Nth Terrace, Adelaide in the heart of the city. Parking was a dream although $45 but your car was handled with care by the Concierge, the checkin at Reception was also handled well and the room was a delightful large room with king bed...

We really enjoyed our visit to this hotel. The reception staff and concierge were very welcoming, helpful and efficient. The room was as to be expected from a hotel of this quality. The very comfortable bath was a bonus. The wi-fi was also excellent and included in our price. The position was extremely convenient; easy strolling distance to Rundle Mall...

Reviewed yesterday NEWvia mobile

This hotel looks in photos and sounds better in descriptions than it is. Not sure how it gets an MGallery stamp given there are some genuinely great MGallery hotels around. Feels like a standard business hotel with only average service across the board - front desk, bar, breakfast. Handy location. But Adelaide is small and maybe not worth the price...

The staff are really lovely here - they remember your face and make you feel really welcome. The rooms are very nice. My only criticism is that the shower wasn't working as effectively as it should have. Overall though, a very pleasant stay.

I recently stayed for an interstate conference and stayed 3 nights. I was warmly welcomed and throughout my stay I experienced excellent customer service. I can't comment on the food as I did not eat at the hotel - I stayed during Fringe Festival and was there for a conference so due to the hotel's central location I was out...

Given the relatively high price per night of the hotel, I was expecting more than I got. The room had no real personality and was decorated with no real direction. The walls are a little to thin and I was able to hear conversations in the hall way and people opening and closing doors. We didn't eat in the restaurant...

Very cool place and great staff. Location was great and the rooms well appointed. I would definitely make this place my first choice whilst in Adelaide. Great boutique feel and good being a part of the Accor group to earn points. see you soon Playford

We were upgraded to a so-called deluxe room, 529. We have a view of another building a few meters away. Room is dark even in daylight. Room otherwise nicely appointed, but had I known it would be like this, I would have stayed elsewhere, perhaps The Intercontiental. Bar area is enjoyable and hotel food and service above average.

We ate breakfast each morning. $72 for the two of us. The buffet was below average. The scrambled eggs were rubbery, the bacon often burnt and dried. The sausages were awful. Poor value for money.. the evening meals were better but not brilliant. When we departed early in the morning we ordered a taxi he evening before. No taxi. The...
