We stayed in a spa room for one night in early November, 2015. Although on the second floor and right on a busy street, it was quiet due to double paned glass doors. What was a little annoying was that they charged for coffee capsules (although the first two were free). Also note the Playford is on a small street...

Stayed weekend enjoying food and wine in Adelaide hills. Location is great, easy walk to good food, and anything you need. Ate at restaurant, which was good but check they give you accor plus discount (as I had to correct on bill which is annoying). Also watch prices restaurant charges - advertised coffee at $3.50 on menu but charge $4.50...

I work in hospitality so when I go out to dine with friends I can be very particular and picky. I am pleased to say that I was very happy with the service at the Playford hotel restaurant. The food was superb. Steak was cooked perfectly. I was also very happy with the wine menu selection being from so many...

We were made to feel very welcome by all the staff. Excellent customer service - nothing was too big or too small for them to assist with. Lovely ambiance and great facilities. Definitely the place to stay while in Adelaide.

We stayed here for one night before catching the Ghan train and were surprised at all the small extra charges. We booked a deluxe room and were surprised that we had to pay for Internet. Internet is free in the lobby which means anyone can walk in off the street and use the wifi free of charge, however, me as...

Stayed here for one night. Have stayed in MGallery hotels in Sydney and Bangkok. This one wasn't quite up to the same standard but the room was comfortable with a really comfortable king size bed. I'm not a fan of the shower in the bathtub. All a bit dated and the bathroom generally wasn't really the standard that you'd expect...

We've stayed in a lot of top hotels around the world and both my husband and I felt that the staff at the Playford were amongst the most helpful and friendly we've encountered anywhere. A lovely hotel, spotlessly clean and well organised. We would definitely return.

Thought I would break away from the dates Stamford in Glenelg and try this one. Not really my style and for me also dated. May cater for the 60 plus age group as this is the feel and styling. Super quiet, but then Adelaide is a quiet city during the week. Huge charge for internet use ( Aussie is mad...

Checked in here for a night. It's has an over the top decor which somehow works. Plush with heavy upholstery and drapes and lots of gold and large statues. Interesting furniture. Checked in by a guy called Tim who delivered excellent customer service and made us feel welcome immediately, very nice guy and best customer service I've experienced in a...

Nice looking lobby bar but average overall. The write up makes it sound glamorous which is potentially what causes disappointment on arrival. But the standard rooms are low cost, so you get what you pay for. Maybe the higher cost rooms are nicer. Peppers Waymouth was better.
