“A little disappointing”
Reviewed May 3, 2014

From the facade and the service, I expected the rooms to be a bit nicer. We stayed one night on two separate occasions and found both rooms in need of a facelift. They were worn out looking, needing a real paint job. They also lacked power outlets, which was frustrating when we're trying to get things charged before the next leg of our trip. Breakfast was disappointing. We had an ocean view, which was nice. It's also located within in easy walking distance to a lot of shops and restaurants.

While this amazing hotel is the ideal place to stay if visiting Adelaide, she is looking a little tired. That said, it is in the most ideal place, with links to the city on the tram, fantastic restaurants only steps from the door and having Glenelg beach just out the back door. We had a fantastic stay...would defiantly go back:)

My husband and I were guided to our VIP room (turns out the wrong room booked by Stamford staff!!!) The staff immediately took us down to the bar and offered us free drinks while our booking was checked and room made ready for us. They apologized for the mix up and the rest of our stay was magical. Cold (being near the beach and all!!), but none the less .... magical!

We stopped here after travelling from the UK & wanted just an overnight stay after the flight. The hotel was about 10mins from the airport. Staff were helpful & pleasant. Our room overlooked the car park but as we were only there to sleep that wasn't an issue for us. Free wifi would have been good - we ended up in McDonalds to use it there lol Glenelg is lovely & we visited a couple of times during our stay. lots of coffee shops & restaurants.

Today I had the opportunity to visit a deluxe ocean view room with friends staying there. The room was lovely, but having a shower over a bath is a bit old fashion, in fact a bit of a nuisance for my friends. Anyway, I just wanted to comment on the outstanding service from EMILY at check in today. her smile alone was enough to make you feel extremely welcome. well done Emily, it's that kind of service that makes any hotel no matter where, worth coming back to.

We have just spent Easter at the Stanford Grand .and I have to say the position of this hotel is just excellent ,you walk out the door and your on the the beach, it's that close to the sea.
Glenelg is a lovely part of Adelaide and this hotel is well placed.
The area has lots of great little restaurant's so you don't have to walk far, also right outside is the light rail tram that takes you right into the city centre,we took it a few times, the trams are very clean and modern also they run every ten to fifteen minutes
The hotel itself is really getting a bit old and needs a face lift, however in saying that the place is clean and well run.
The dining room is glass fronted and looks over the sea and the beach, just beautiful .
The food was nice however expensive as was the drinks
Our room was a bit tired looking but very clean and comfortable, we had a king room with balcony and a sea view which was nice, however we were on the fourth floor,it would have been a lot better if we had been on a higher floor. The balcony is very small one can only stand out on it as it's two small to get a table and chairs on it.
On the hole we had a lovely stay at this hotel

Room Tip: Ask for an ocean view room on the high floors

Position perfect, the Stamford Grand Glenelg is well located in the middle of the city and right on the beach. We stayed on the 10th floor in an Ocean View King room and the view was amazing. The room was typical of 5 star hotel rooms (clean, well stocked mini bar, good sized TV, comfortable, lovely). The bed and pillows were very comfortable. We were initially concerned that the Sunday night disco downstairs at the Stamford would keep us awake, but we could not hear anything from the 10th floor - our room was very quiet. I recommend the High Afternoon Tea - it is well priced and very nice indeed. I also recommend Tomiko Station Teppanyaki bar (800 metre stroll away from the hotel on the marina) - it is a bit pricey but the serves are large and the food is delicious.
