The entrance of the hotel is very luxurious looking, all staff were very friendly and helpful. Bags were taken up to our room. Stayed in the Loft suite was a very nice room and different to any room I have ever stayed in before. However the photo's do look more appealing than the room itself even though it was nice....

The Playford is a gorgeous hotel with extremely friendly and professional staff! We loved the location as it is an easy walk to the Botanical Gardens, The Art Museum, Adelaide University, the river walk, and many restaurants. By staying here for one night, we felt like we were able to get a nice feel for this small city (wineries in...

We arrived at the Playford hot and tired in the early evening after spending most of the day travelling from Uluru. The hotel was full of smartly dressed people attending different functions. However despite our rather informal appearance (shorts and T shirts) we could not have been made more welcome. The reception staff were very friendly and helpful. As it...

Stayed at this hotel over festive period. The hotel is on North Terrace, near to train station, shopping and restaurants & cafe....all walking distance. We were booked into their Studio Spa Suite - good size suite, decor is a bit dated but well maintained. It comes with a little kitchenette with microwave and crockery so that was rather convenient. We...

We stayed at the Playford for two nights before joining the Ghan for a trip north to Darwin. Very helpful staff and beautifully appointed rooms, very near to all travellers requirements and restaurants. A visit to the Museum of Wine and the Botanical Gardens is time well spent.

We had a standard room and though it faced the car park we did not mind at all. The room is a decent size and the bed was a King or Queen. The bathroom has a bath which I like. You can put a masque on your hair and lie in the warmth for a few minutes. Staff are very...

This is a lovely hotel in a great location. Rooms are large and well appointed with the added bonus of a balcony - it's nice to have the option of fresh air instead of air conditioning. The bed was comfortable and there was a pillow menu if you are fussy about your pillow choices. The tv was a little too...

We were made to feel very welcome at reception. Our upgraded room (Deluxe Guest on 6th floor) was clean and very well appointed. The bed was extremely comfortable ensuring us a good night's sleep. Our breakfast (buffet style) was most enjoyable. The hot foods were cooked in small batches so that you always got food that had only recently been...

We used our free Accor night here, and found the room below what we would have expected of a 5-star property. We often stay in 5-star hotels travelling through Asia, and unfortunately the Playford doesn't even come close. - The bathroom was a bit cramped, with water from the shower dripping out all over the bathroom floor. - One of...

This is a beautiful classic hotel with terrific personnel and a fantastic decor. The architecture is untouched but still looking brand new. I loved our stay here, came back here after our short stay in Kangaroo Island. If I ever go back to Adelaide, this is the hotel I'll be staying at. It has all the amenities needed, and if...
