My girlfriend and I stayed at the Stamford over the June long weekend. We didn't enjoy our time there and I wouldn't recommend it to anyone else.
Firstly, on the night we arrived we had to change rooms as we weren't able to sleep in the one we were in due to the noise coming from a high school formal being held in one of the function rooms on the ground floor. We were on the third floor. Granted the hotel upgraded us to a junior suite at no extra charge, but I still wasn't happy with the fact that we had to move in the first place. Also, the junior suite was nothing to write home about either.
Secondly, the hotel itself is quited old and dated and not really worthy of it's prestigious reputation.
Thirdly, the car parking arrangement at the hotel is terrible. The hotel doesn't have it's own car park. It shares a public car park located across the street from it's main entrance. This becomes a major problem when you want to park your car on a Saturday night but can't because the car park is full.
Finally, if you are going to stay in Glenelg, I wouldn't recommend doing so on a long weekend. On the Sunday night it seems that every young drunk in Adelaide goes to the Jetty Hotel or tries to get into the bar in the hotel itself. And to make matters worse, some of them decide to stay at in the hotel itself and run around drunk in the halls when they've finished their night out.
