Only stayed overnight whilst attending a conference. Very convenient, lovely reception staff. Nice pool and spa/sauna but the gym was quite old and tired. Possibly the best thing about this place was the buffet breakfast- brilliant! Fresh and delicious! with a free coffee on arrival which was very welcomed.

My first stay at this Hotel and I was so impressed with the attentive service, the rooms and the facilities. The food was a standout with the best breakfast buffet I have come across. There was genuine thought and understanding in making sure those that wished to eat healthy were well looked after with plenty of choice. When I return...

Four perfect days in Adelaide. The hotel is centrally located, spa room over looked the casino infront of the River Torrens and was perfect in every way. The standout was the bar staff, always friendly, took our orders and served quickly. The bar waiter Julian didnt let us go to the bar to order, he intercepted me three times heading...

We stayed 3 nights at the Playford in Adelaide on a business trip (took the family). We enjoyed a two queen room which was small but perfectly fine for our needs. We enjoyed the gym and pool area - pool is only heated to 25 degrees so a bit cold for us (in cold weather). My only comment was about...

A really nice hotel in a good location on North Terrace, easy access to the free city trams, which enable you to quickly get around to see all that Adelaide has to offer. The room was spacious with all the extras that a good quality hotel provides, except that the in room wifi had to be paid for. It was...

Very classy hotel in a really good position in Adelaide CBD. Across the road from the casino and the river, with Rundle Mall and restaurants around the corner. Tram stops out the front but everything is within walking distance from this hotel. The restaurant at this hotel is phenomenal! The setting is ultra stylish. The gnocchi entrée was to die...

Everything about this hotel is the very highest quality. I probably would not have chosen to stay here, if our travel agent hadn't put us up here. I admit, it was a bit pricier than I would have preferred, but it was worth every penny. The room was very comfortable, the bed large and incredibly easy to sleep in. The...
