This is my 1st visit in a couple of years, but the hotel is still just as good. Stayed one night in an ocean view room on the 12th floor. The rooms are large and with everything you would need. You can see that the rooms are starting to show their age, but not an issue, yet. Beds are comfortable and bathroom good size.
Room service of a burger and fries was excellent and quick.
I did not have breakfast there next morning as they wanted to charge $29 for a continental or $36 for a full breakfast, I know the restaurant has a great view, but that is just too high !!!

Room Tip: Pay the extra and get a ocean view room on the 12th floor

Well, I have to say that this is one of the best stays I've had anywhere. I really have no complaints, only praise. It started with a great online deal which I would not have expected from this place. Every staff member I crossed paths with so very friendly and polite. The location is just excellent. You're right on the water and in the heart of Glenelg with access to shops, cafes, bars and restaurants. You can catch the tram from the heart of Adelaide and get off right out the front of the Stamford Grande. Or, you can hire a car like I did. It's only a 10 minute drive from the airport. You can park onsite for $15 a night or, park on the street like I did as I was working all day and by the time I got back to the motel there was unlimited street parking only metres from their front door.

This place has a grand old opulent feel to it, not that typically clinical feel that most new places have. Sure, it's probably a little dated in some ways but I really liked it. My room was HUGE. I asked for a room on a high floor and got exactly that. I had wonderful views of the city and the hills. You could open two of the windows slightly for fresh air or use the a/c (which wasn't loud like another review said, so they either fixed it or it was just that room), and it was very efficient when it got chilly at night.

The TV was a good quality one with lots of channels. The bed was sooooooo comfortable. Plenty of lights and lamps, a little table and chairs and a comfortable two seater lounge with a little coffee table on wheels. The bathroom was roomy and spotless. Again, a little dated maybe, but perfectly fine.

The mini bar was really well stocked with lots of drinking and snacking options :) and the wardrobe had a nice cosy robe in it to wear and a decent iron and ironing board. I didn't use room service as it was a little pricey and since you're in the heart of Glenelg there are lots of food options (but the in room dining food looked pretty good). I didn't use the bar or restaurant but I poked my head in and they had a great vibe to them. I also didn't use the pool or the gym as I was busy working so I can't comment on those.

All in all, this was an excellent place to stay. I thoroughly enjoyed staying there and would stay there again in a heart beat.

A great Hotel at a wonderful location. My room had a city view with also looks out to the Adelaide Hills. The staff deserve special mention. Nothing was a problem and everything just happened seamlessly.

The room was spotlessly clean and nicely finished.

Room Tip: Try to get a room up higher as the view will be better.

A lovely hotel on the beach. We paid extra for the balcony and the sea view - well worth it. We also asked and got a room high up - on the 12th floor - so the views were fantastic. The hotel is a little dated and I believe they are upgrading the rooms in the next year. The bedside lights all had to be on together and couldn't be turned off individually which was annoying. The swimming pool is lovely with glass walls keeping out the wind and an open top to let in the sun. The jacuzzi was a bit violent. Glenelg is a lovely place with walks along the beach and marina and great shops. The tram into Adelaide centre is right by the hotel. We didn't eat at the hotel- there are plenty of restaurants nearby.

Room Tip: Sea view with balcony as high up as possible.

Package detailed inclusions of "Luxurious" overnight accommodation. There was nothing Luxurious about our accommodation. View of rubbish bins in an alley way and a disabled bathroom with open shower and shower curtain which flooded the bathroom/toilet floor. We paid $315 for this luxury.

The rooms are clean enough but in general the whole hotel needs a revamp .. Hello the 1990s called and they want their cheesy colour schemes back. Buffet breakfast felt a bit like school dinner.. B grade condiments and tin fruit??? Your supposed to be 5 star. Back to the Hilton next time for me.

Quick visit for one night business trip. Room very comfortable, slept well. Speedy room service for dinner. Helpful staff.

Right on the beach if you had time for a morning stroll. Would be great place to stay for spending time in trendy Glenelg. Would stay again next time I'm back
