We stayed here for three nights and then a single night a week later. The hotel's public areas are beautiful and the staff are very helpful and attentive. One member of staff came over to me to apologise for not realising I was waiting to check out, he thought I was with another person. The hotel restaurant is superb and...

We came upon the Playford while looking for a place to have a quiet drink and a light bite (and mainly to avoid the rowdy football crowd spilling out of the stadium nearby). The bar area is stylish in a retro elegant way and it felt very welcoming. Whilst the bar menu was simple fare such as pizzas, dips, a...

From the moment we arrived at the Playford Hotel, the service was exceptional. The porter greeted us and collected our bags and we were lucky to check in at 9:00am as our room was ready early. We were unsure how to take our rental car back to Europe Car and they were straight on the phone to Europe Car and...

From the moment of check, right through until check out three days later, the quality of service was exceptional. This hotel has its main entrance situated on a small access road off the busy North Tce. There is even a small hotel only driveway, allowing the unpacking of bags from your car to occur off the street. The staff were...

Where do I start?! Rooms are large and romantic with the black marble wall in bathroom. Very posh. Even towel racks are kept warm to dry our towels quicker!~ Breakfast was awesome. simply the best breakfast we have in Adelaide. Will definitely stay there when we go back to Adelaide.

Wonderful place to stay. Clean, cozy, comfortable beds. Quality shampoos, etc. rooms were very funky old world feel. Food was delicious, just perfect. The hotel feels classy. Easy walk to town. Didn't like the entry drive as was off the main road so hard to get taxi in and out.

Many things to like about this hotel. Great location, 5-10min pleasant stroll to Adelaide Oval, or the tennis complex. For those so inclined, the casino is right across the road too. Taxis are plentiful. It's also only a 5-10min walk to centre of town too. The hotel has a nice atmosphere, and a large bar area to cater for many....

Location of hotel is great, short stroll to Rundle Mall and the Torrens River Precinct, Railway Station is across the road as is the casino. Reception, Concierge along with Bar and Restaurant staff were friendly and offered excellent service. Décor of hotel is very good. Room was large, very clean with good amenities. Free in room Wifi was a bonus....

A nice location and lovely rooms, really friendly staff. The location is perfectly situated for a walk on the riverfront across the street. I'd eat here as well, by the way, or close by: as you get back into downtown it gets less interesting.
