The extra money spent on an ocean view room was worth it. Last year we stayed on the city side and heard rubbish being taken out at all hours. Staff very helpful And friendly. Breakfast buffet fantastic.

Stayed here on Christmas Eve and had a wonderful spacious room on the corner of the building with magnificent views to the North, West and East. The rooms are well appointed with all the features expected of a quality hotel. Beds were extremely comfortable and the linen crisp and clean. The reception and valet parking staff were friendly and efficient. The only let down in this hotel was the Promenade Restaurant which we felt had taken on a more casual appearance since our last visit. Whilst the food was excellent, there are now no table clothes or side plates and the cutlery sits in a box in the middle of the table like a cafeteria. I have eaten here many times but probably won't again only due to the casualness of it all in this beautiful setting. The cocktail bar by the grand staircase is classy but was slightly understaffed on Christmas Eve, mainly due to the number of cocktails being ordered :-)

Room Tip: If you don't mind paying extra ask for a room on the very corner overlooking the jetty or one wi...

I stayed for 3 nights in a King room with ocean view on the 10th floor. I found it quite spacious, comfortable and I loved sitting at the window gazing out to sea... the view was spectacular. I found this floor very quiet and well away from the the weekend trade in the bars on the ground floor.
On my last night I ordered room service and shall I say the serving size was 'very' generous and very tasty too.
Staff were all polite and helpful and I would like to thank the concierge who found a tiny screwdriver in his misc. draw to reinsert the screw that fell out of my reading glasses.
The buffet breakfast in the Promenade Restaurant had a good selection of dishes and you dine overlooking the sea.
I did not get time to try out the pool due to a reunion with old friends but it looked very nice.
The area around the Stamford offers much from pleasant sea walks, to amusement parks for those with kids, to nice surrounding restaurants/bars/boutique shops. We found this Tapas restaurant (didn't get the name) near the Stamford and the manager chose a selection for us and it was fantastic.
There is a tram at the front door that takes you right into the CBD.
A really pleasant stay at the Stamford.

Room Tip: There are 12 floors and the higher up you stay then less noise and awesome views. I stayed on the 10...

Have stayed here twice in the last fortnight for business. Previously used the Oaks Plaza next door, but I prefer the Stamford for business purposes. The room is comfortable, although there was quite a bit of difference between the two rooms I've stayed in. The ocean view room was much better than the city view, more attractive and larger too. The staff are excellent, and that applies to everyone I've come into contact with, from the conference staff, the reception, concierge and room service. The food is fantastic, both room service (24 hours) and the Promenade restaurant. Little things like a reasonable hairdryer, bathrobe and mini-bar really make a business visit (when you're only in the room after-hours, or trying to pack lightly) much easier. The rooms could do with refurbishment, but they are certainly attractive enough, and very comfortable. On the downside, I found cracks in walls and an untidy paint job in both rooms, and the hallway is dim. Apart from that, this place is fantastic. And room service is terrific - about 12 minutes for a full cooked breakfast to arrive, with professional and friendly service. The conference rooms are good, and the catering was excellent. For work purposes, I'd choose the Stamford any day.

Room Tip: Ocean view room was better quality - it's not just the view

The Stamford is in a perfect spot. We requested a room with ocean views, and the views were spectacular! Yes, the room was in need of an update, but for the price we paid, we were very happy with the room, and everything was clean and tidy. Would not hesitate to stay there again, in fact, I wouldn't bother researching anywhere else. The tram pick up to take you into Adelaide is just around the cnr. All the shops and Mariner are within a short stroll. Can't wait to stay there again! :)
