Hi there Thank you so much for your lovely feedback!

5 out of 5

convenient, quiet and comfortable.

Pros: Quiet, older building but done up in a sympathetic way.
Cons: Access to food and drink
Location: Some nice cafes but most shops are closed, due to bad local government planning over many years. Not something I or you can fix!
Spacious, with everything one could need. The only problem is the way that the developers have have been allowed to wreck the older parts of Whyalla by putting a shopping centre a long way from the main street. This means a lot of closed shops, and run down blocks, and you cannot so easily find food or drink within walking distance but have to drive. This is definitely not a criticism of the apartments, which are great and very well managed. But what it means is that you have to jump into your car to get almost anything. When are we going to learn!

Dear Rob, thank you for taking the time to post a review in regards to your stay at Whyalla Playford Apartments. Thank you for your kind comments in regards to our accommodation, it is a shame that the shops re a drive away and not a walk away. Hopefully we will see you again at our apartments.

Comfortable and well located in the Whyalla old to

My husband had not been in this building since it’s facelift from hotel to apartments and he was really impressed. It was stylish, and contemporary and really quiet for it’s location. The apartment was well equipped for basic cooking and was clean and easy to access without reception staff. The building still retains its charm and character with a modern and comfortable interior. We really liked the place.
