“One of the good guys”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2013

Weve just come off a weekend in Brisbane and stayed at the Stamford Plaza. This was a nice change from the Sofitel, Hilton and Marriott. Nice rooms, comfy beds and HUGE bathrooms. All the staff were very accommodating from booking until check out. Our only negative comment is the quality of the Brasserie breakfast. Unfortunately I've has better and fresher breakfasts in mining camps. Very ordinary, and we never got our coffees on the Sunday morning as ordered.

Overall this is up there with one of the best hotels in Brisbane for comfort, views and service.

Went here for a girls day. The buffet high tea was amazing! Had everything you could imagine. Delicious!
The chocolate high tea is situated in this under covered area outside, with a beautiful view of the story bridge.

Recommend having a small light lunch prior to having the high tea, as you will be full enough.

Dear Lozrar,

Thank you for advising of your recent experience with our chocolate high tea. I am delighted you enjoyed it. I have passed on your kind comments to the chef. The high teas are always popular and it is something nice to do with a group of friends. I can also recommend our Lobby High Tea which is accompanied by a live harpist.

Stayed here numerous times on business. Very enjoyable experience. The hotel is located very close to restaurants and overlooks the river.
The amenities are as good as I have experienced in any good hotel. Staff are pleasant and accommodating. Food was good but expensive.
Staying at the hotel I have paid anything from $250 to $550+ for similar rooms. I know pricing is demand driven but it makes it difficult to stay loyal to one hotel when prices vary that much.
Happy to stay there again.

Our 4th stay at the Stamford Plaza Brisbane and as always an excellent experience! Staff are friendly, the rooms are clean and it's located in a great part if Brisbane. Due to the constant satisfaction we experience, we are considering paying the annual fee and becoming Senator Club members just so we have an excuse to return.

I truly enjoyed my stay at the Stamford Plaza in Brisbane. My husband took my to the Stamford Plaza as a birthday gift this year and treated me to the "Romance" package. It was wonderful. The room was incredible and we were nearly on the top floor. All the staff were so lovely. We had strawberries and champagne in the room and the bath was drawn and candles lit around the room. The bed was lovely and the spa bath in the room was nice and big. our view of the river and the Story bridge was amazing, we just sat and drank our champagne and looked out at the view. We also had the seafood buffet dinner at the Stamford. the Stamford goes right onto the river and it's nice to be able to eat dinner by the river and I was surprised by how lovely and quiet it was. The food was quite delicious and not that expensive compared to other seafood restaurants.

Room Tip: If you can get a room looking over the river towards the story bridge then go for it, the view is co...

We travelled down to Brisbane for a concert and decided to stay somewhere nice. We were not disappointed. The booking process was incredibly easy with Sameer in reservations noting all our requests and therefore ensuring we had a room on the 21st floor. When the taxi pulled up the door was immediately opened by a friendly chap with a smile. Check-in was very easy with our bags taken straight away to our room even though we arrived hours before standard check-in time.

The location of this hotel is second to none being right on the river and directly opposite the botanic gardens. The view from our room was spectacular! The bathroom was sheer luxury and even had a TV. Eagle Street Pier is just a short stroll away as is Queen Street Mall. The staff are all great, in particular Steve the concierge was incredibly friendly and helpful and could offer advice on dining, best transport options and even shopping!

This hotel has a real old world charm with a gorgeous courtyard in the centre where you can sit with a chilled glass of wine and some very tasty nibbles. We were also given drinks vouchers on check-in which were greatly appreciated :)

I would have no hesitation in returning to this hotel or reccommending it to anyone. The location is perfect but the staff really make this place stand out and are a credit to the Stamford name.

Dear Dani K,
Firstly thank you so much for your wonderful review of the Stamford Plaza Brisbane. Thank you for specifically pointing out Sameer and Steve for their excellent service. We actually have a staff rewards program in which your comments will further assist Sameer and Steve in being recognised for their work throughout the hotel. We are incredibly fortunate with our location right on the Brisbane River yet only a short walk to to all the shops and restaurants. We look forward to welcoming you back to Brisbane in the near future.

Kind Regards,

Philippe
