“Average Rooms”
Reviewed June 1, 2009

Booked online for May 09 stay..no probs there. Had a few questions so emailed these through and the girls were very helpful although 1 enquiry took a couple of days before someone responded to it. Had read previous reviews about bathrooms being average and unfortunately they were. Bathrooms are probably the most impt. thing for us when staying at a hotel and although we were told all bathrooms had been 'refurbished', this probably meant that all bathrooms had been re-grouted and the vanity basins were replaced because other than that the rest of the bathroom looked fairly dated. The shower was in the bath which we don't like but that wasn't a big deal. The beds were comfy enough until we had to sleep in them...nothing wrong with beds themselves but the pillows were awful! My husband actually gave up and just stayed up watching the tennis on tv all night because he couldn't get comfortable with the pillows (they were very high pillows). I managed to get some sleep but felt very sorry for hubby.

TV's were old, the buttons on the tv didn't work in our room so unless we had the remote with us couldn't turn volume up and down as required. There was a balcony in our room which was nice but too cold on our particular stay to open it.

Full buffet brekky was included in our stay and it was ok. They had hash browns, pancakes, scrambled eggs, bacon, mushrooms, sausages and tomatoes as well as yoghurt, cereal, muffins, croissants, toast, various juices, tea and coffee and fresh fruits. If it weren't included in our package we most definitley would not have paid $30 odd bucks for the brekky. Definitely not worth that! At $30 per person you'll be gauranteed a pretty top notch main course meal at a high end restuarant somewhere in Adelaide...certainly not worth that for Brekky...espeically when it wasn't the best nor biggest spread.

All in all it was an ok stay but 1 night was long enough for us. Maybe we have high standards compared to most??

Service was excellent though so can't fault them there.

Spent a night there to celebrate my birthday. Has a grand entrance. Stayed in a room that overlooked the ocean. Beautiful sunset view. Restaurant had a wide selection of different cuisine. I paid $250 for the room and felt that it was money well spent.

This hotel is located at one of the best spots in Adelaide. Had beautiful beach views from my extra large room. The staff were frienldly and the service very good. Make sure you dine in the Promenade restaurant and take in all that this beach side location has to offer.

We stayed only for a night but were very impressed with the standard of service and quality of accomodation at The Stamford Grand Hotel, Adelaide. We walked into the hotel with no reservation, but the staff was very accomodating. A junior suite was found for us with fantastic views over the city and the sea. Although we were early, we were allowed to check into our room early which just goes to show how fantastic the quality of service is at this hotel.

The hotel is located right smack on Jetty Road, where the happening is. The hotel even offered Asian cuisine at its Rickshaw Cafe. The staff - from the conceirge right up to the housekeeping maid were very friendly and helpful, even when I insisted bringing up our heavy luggage to repack! A very good stay indeed. I would recommend this hotel to honeymooners, and to those who want to get away from it all..

I was quite dissapointed with my one nihgt stay here. When we arrived there was a note saying enjoy this complemantry bottle with two dirty wine glasses with no bottle it was in the fridge. When we went down to the promonade restuarant we orded two WELL DONE steaks and they took about 45 mins so we thought quite normal for well done. When the steaks arrived they were both dripping no where near well done seriously more like med rare. The spa pool and sauna area was quite dirty and a little bit mouldy on the floor especial in the sauna was in need of a good scrub. We had a late check out but after 10 our keys automatitcly wouldnt let us in anymore so we had to get them re scaned which was just a hassle. The stay was over all very average but ok. I would not stay there again unless they have an absoulte bargin deal. Also if you happen to stay get as far away from the nightclub as possible as I was awake all hours of the night from all the noise from mucis and roudy people and I was on the 5th floor. VERY AVERAGE

The Stamford is a great location at the end of Jetty Road and the Tram line, and close to the beach, but that's about all it has going for it. It's pretty run down and needs an overhaul. We had a city room on level 4, it was very average. Definately not 5 star! We didn't get any sleep as the nightclub was VERY loud, only finished aboutl 4am, after that we heard people fighting in the alley and then the dump truck which came around at 6am. We have stayed here quite a few times before and this is the second time this has happened to us in the last 6 months, so we will not stay here anymore.

The room was only on the 2nd floor, it certainly wasn't a city view. The room service took forever. The restaurant has a seafood buffet on saturday nights, $55 per person, pretty crappy seafood you could tell it wasn't fresh. Not that much variety. Buffet breakfast wasn't that marvellous either. They had run out of cutlery and crockery you couldn't find any staff to get more supplies. The hotel is in a great location, plenty of shops on Jetty Road.
