I remembered staying at this hotel about 10 years ago and this is why I chose it again. Once I made the booking the staff did call me and advised the hotel is under renovation but only the foyer and restaurant are affected. I had booked a twin queen bed room for my sister and I, we arrived and the staff gave us our room key. We entered 310 and the smell of dust mite was overwhelming. Clearly this room has not been used in a long time, the thick curtains were especially pungent and dusty. My sister and I have asthma and an allergy to dustmite, we both started coughing and our eyes were watering, our throats got scratchy. We called reception and waited to hear back and then eventually went down and they took us back up with manager of housekeeping. He offered us a tiled room, but unfortunately this only had a king bed. The room was fine, not as dusty as the other one and comfortable. I was disappointed that the staff didn’t offer us a discount, I paid $260 for our original twin queens room and the room we got was on a lower level and with one bed. I was disappointed with the hotel, it definitely needs the refurbishment. The pool and spa were still lovely and relaxing.

Dear Kristen, Thank you for sharing your concerns and all the points you covered. We are very sorry for the inconvenience caused during your stay. Should you wish to return after our renovation is complete, or before, I would love to assist you with your booking. Sincerely, Ricky Stenta Guest Experience Manager

Nice room. Heating didn't work at night. Gym was certainly dated, very 90's. Could even be quite dangerous for the wrong person given the machines in 90's locked you into injury prone positions.

Thank you Mat, we really appreciate your comments and thank you for sharing your experience. Our renovations are almost complete and we look forward to welcoming you back. Sincerely, Ricky Stenta Guest Experience Manager

My husband and I visited Adelaide over Easter and chose the Playford based on TripAdvisor reviews. We’re so glad we did - what a brilliant hotel. From the moment we checked in, we were greeted with friendly smiles by all the staff, and everyone we met from the cleaners to the bar men to the managers were chatty and helpful. We stayed in a gorgeous room with a king sized bed and what a treat to have a welcome gift on our bed when we walked in. The location is excellent, right near the main train station and it was so easy to catch a tram to wherever we wanted to go in the City. Shout out to the bar man who tracked me down through some great detective work when I left my bag behind in the courtyard bar one evening 😀 This is a fantastic hotel to stay at, highly recommended.
