My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights in May. Location of the hotel is perfect but the rooms fittings are looking worn and tired and in much need of some TLC. The black mould in the grout between the bathroom tiles, which was very obvious, was not a good look and definitely not what I would expect in a Stamford hotel. In saying that, the room was on 11th floor and had a great view, the bed was spacious and very comfortable and we enjoyed our stay
and most of the hotel staff were very helpful. We had a hire car and parked in the designated car park which is very close by with multiple entries allowed daily for a set fee.
The buffet breakfast has a great choice of food but we found that the cooked food from the bain-maries wasn't very hot at all, sometimes just lukewarm.
We love a good curry and managed to find a great Indian Restaurant nearby - the Chola South Indian Restaurant - which was only about 1 block away (between the hotel and the surf club). I has only been open for a few weeks so was fairly quiet but the food was great and if you like a good Indian I can definitely recommend it. The concierge staff at the hotel didn't seem to know about this place as when we asked for a local Indian restaurant they directed us elsewhere to a place that didn't look very flash and we didn't fancy eating there, so really pleased we found this ourselves.
We also took the tram from the main street into Adelaide and went to visit the jail/goal which was very interesting.
We liked the hotel overall and think that if it has a bit of a refurb it will be much better. Would stay here again if the price was right if only for the location.

Room Tip: Request high up if you don't want noise from the night club

Dear JoJoSunshineCoast

Thank you for taking the time to post your review following your recent stay. I was pleased you enjoyed your stay overall and took advantage of our great location in the heart of Adelaide’s most popular beachside suburb. Our concierge team is generally well versed in the local attractions and eateries so the Chola must have been very new. They are now aware and will use your recommendation when speaking with other guests. With a refurbishment to commence very soon, I trust we can look forward to hosting you again in the future.

Kind regards

I stayed at the Stamford Grand for three nights. The room was nice and clean, thick curtains (great for sleeping). Small things like the products in the bathroom (shampoo etc) are high quality. The staff are helpful and the parking is located nearby (valet not needed) about 30 meters from the entrance to the hotel. The gym located at the hotel is better than most hotels provide and I enjoyed using the weights and running/ cycle machines. The buffet breakfast is handy but there are better choices nearby (checkout Grind It, coffee shop located at rear of hotel, best coffee and breaky!!) I would recommend this hotel to anyone going to Adelaide either for a family holiday or a business trip to Adelaide.

The location of the Stamford Grand at Glenelg is great.
The staff are very caring and looked after our every need.
Our room was on the eleventh floor and had a wonderful view of Adelaide. There were two double beds in the room and we would have preferred a king or queen sized bed instead.
The cocktail bar was full of private functions and the other bar was noisy so we had drinks elsewhere.
We would stay here again.

Dear JannienadKev

Thank you for posting your review following your stay earlier this month. I was pleased to read that you enjoyed the view from your room and would encourage you to discuss a room move with any hotel you’re staying in if you should find yourself allocated a room with a different configuration than that which you’d prefer. We always try to accommodate these requests but they are subject to availability, of course. All of our outlets are very popular with locals and house guests alike so I’m sorry there wasn’t room for you on the night you stayed. I do hope we can look forward to welcoming you back to the Stamford Grand Adelaide next time you’re in Adelaide.

Kind regards

We booked a romance package at The Stamford. It beyond exceeded all expectations. On arrival our room was lit by candle, rose petals everywhere and a table set up with Moët, sushi and chocolates. The room was a little dated but set up beautifully. Breakfast was delivered the next morning and included everything imaginable. I would highly recommend the romance package for short romantic getaway.

I was delighted to read that you and your partner enjoyed a romantic getaway with our Romance and Seduction package last month. It certainly is a pampering treat that all couples should try. Thank you for taking the time to share your experience with other travellers and we look forward to welcoming you back in the future.

Stayed here for a night & had a $100 food & beverage credit as part of the package unfortunately restaurant was booked out which was disappointing, so we ordered the room service which was very average.......the gravy was terrible! Location is fantastic, ask for a sea view deluxe room with balcony. Full buffet breakfast was good.

Dear Joskie

Thank you for taking the time to post your review following your recent stay. I was pleased to read that you enjoyed the view from your ocean side room and you were able to take in the sea air from the balcony. Our Promenade Restaurant is very popular with both locals and in-house guests alike, particularly on a Saturday night when we put on our seafood buffet, so I apologise that the restaurant was fully booked on the night of your stay. Perhaps next time you’re in Adelaide you can stay again and book ahead for the restaurant as it really is worth a visit.

Kind regards
