The Playford Adelaide is in a fantastic location, a short walk to the mall, plenty of restaurants, cafes, the casino and nightlife, and easy access to the beaches either via public transport or car. The hotel is lovely, the staff helpful, the rooms clean and nicely appointed, and the amenities pleasant. The only downside I can think of would be...

My wife and I stayed at The Playford Adelaide recently and it was a truly memorable experience. On arrival we were given a free upgrade to a suite at the front of the building. The suite was clean, spacious, modern and very comfortable. The staff went the extra mile to ensure that our stay was effortless, including running across to...

Great staff. Incredible breakfast!!! Even vegie juices!! The room service food was absolutely incredible. The room was clean. The bed was extremely comfortable. The view was great.

Always love staying at the Sebel Playford. Love the luxury boutique style, and wonderful service. The little extras make all the difference, like complimentary drink vouchers and coffee vouchers etc. Restaurant is amazing and breakfast is one of the best in Adelaide. Highly recommend for a romantic getaway or just a lovely break in Adelaide.

Can't fault the staff, friendly and helpful. Room was excellent. We had limited self catering, just a microwave but adequate for breakfast. Very close to the station and tram stop which is free in the city making it easily accessible. The Playford Lounge bar is popular with locals for coffee. 15 minutes from the airport.

After reading all the reviews on TA, I was excited to stay at The Playford Adelaide. Everything seemed so perfect. On arrival it was everything I expected. Classy hotel, friendly staff, great location. I upgraded to a deluxe room, so my room too was everything that I expected. Well designed, fine finishing. I couldn't pick a fault at all. Until...

The Playford is centrally located in Adelaide. Very comfortable hotel, staff very charming and pleasant. Room was a suite and it was of a good size,although no view as we seemed to be at the back of the hotel. Probably our fault for not specifying a room with more of a view !! 20 minutes by taxi to / airport....

The place to stay in Adelaide, if not for its old-style class and flair then for the restaurant. In my opinion the best restaurant in any Accor property in Australia, and the breakfasts are incredible for those who care about where their food is coming from. The rooms have plenty of character and are spacious, and the hotel is conveniently...
