We stayed here for a wedding at a somewhat busy time of year. The problem with most of the apartments in glenelg is that they have a 2 night minimum stay and so we had a choice between 2 cheap hotels or the stamford grand. Looking at the prices of the rooms we were surprised to find that some were affordable, so we made a booking.
The hotel itself is amazing, the facilities, the decor, the service. If you stay there for a day and plan to spend some time in the hotel then the price would be worth it. Unfortunately we had a wedding to go at 3 and check in time was 2pm. We basically only went back to the room to sleep.
When we got to our room there was a bit of disappointment. The pictures on the site made the rooms look much larger than they were, and the furtniature was a bit cheap looking. I have a king bed at home and have to say the "king" bed in the room was a queen at best. The shower also had a little bit of mould that I couldn't help but notice.
Other than that the view was great, location great, rooms clean (aside from shower mould). Service was good and the place was quiet (rare these days when staying at hotels). But i suppose I just expected a little more for my $260. I think the room itself was worth maybe 150-200. The rooms were nothing compared to the Intercontinental for example (which charges 300 a night but is very fancy indeed).
I suppose if you must stay in Glenelg though and can't get a place at any of the apartments then at least the Stamford Grand will be quiet and nicer than the other cheap hotels.
