Recently stayed at The Playford Hotel during Adelaide Cabaret Festival. Excellent location for access to transport and Adelaide Festival and Conference centres, easy 5 minute walk. The hotel staff are very helpful, the bar and restaurant facilities are excellent. My room was quiet, very comfortable and large but dark with no natural light on the 4th floor so I would...

This place was beautiful, very clean. The bed and pillows were very comfortable and the indoor pool was spectacular. The bar and coffee lounge was very relaxing with beautiful decor. It is situated very close to the city shopping mall and casino and conference center. The staff were very efficient,welcoming and helpful. Highly recommended .

Had a very pleasant stay at this hotel, however I was on the first floor, took me quite a while to find the room as this floor is full of conference rooms, also it was out the back facing a noisy alleyway so not the most quiet spot as trucks pulled up to empty rubbish. Comfortable bed, nice shower.

The staff was very friendly and helpful. I enjoyed my stay here but I couldn't give it 5 stars because it is a bit dated and the facilities are not quite top notch ie. gym and pool. They are all clean, well kept and maintained but the hotel is just a bit old. All that being said, I would definitely...

I travel to Adelaide for business regularly and I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone.

The restaurant and it's staff are amazing and I would say it's...

Dropped in on a Saturday night for some after dinner drinks, and was totally blown away by a pretty cool band called "The Cast"! Not sure what the deal is, but wow, lounge pretty full, quiet sort of crowd but did the band get them involved! Drinks staff fine, service fine. Band..... unreal! Not sure why they didn't play longer,...

We stayed here for the recent Geelong game. We were lucky, so did the players, so that was a bonus running into different players in the lifts and hotel. The room we had was great, 10ft high ceilings and we had a courtyard outside our windows. The room had a very comfortable king bed and all the trimmings were in...

This hotel is well located, the staff are friendly & efficient but overall we were disappointed. The facilities are cramped particularly the reception & arrival area. The rooms need renovating. We had a two level suite, the bathroom was outdated and small. The steps were precarious and the layout didn't work with the storage upstairs & bathroom downstairs. I wouldn't...

Had a weekend away with my partner, just to get away together and relax. Was the perfect hotel to do so.
