My husband and I stayed here for 2 nights and absolutely loved it. We wanted a romantic get-away as a stop over to the Sunshine Coast. We upgraded to a junior suite and the views from the room were AMAZING! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and I think it was the little touches that made it special - complimentary paper each morning, complimentary bottled water, sparkling wine on arrival and fantastic front desk staff made our stay a very comfortable indeed. The buffet breakfast each morning was delicious and we enjoyed the gym and swimming pool facilities after a very filling breaky. We can't wait to come back for another romantic stay in the next couple of months. Thank you to all the wonderful members of the Stamford Plaza family!!

Dear Sonia K

Many thanks to you for your wonderful and positive feedback! I have passed your comments on to all our team members here at the hotel and it has certainly spread some Christmas Cheer!

It has been a somewhat challenging year for the hotel so it is certainly lovely to read that our team here are still "wowing" our guests.

We do thank you once again for taking the time out to share your comments with us, and we wish you and your family and safe and happy Christmas.

We look forward to having you with us again soon.

Best wishes

We were lucky enough to have the restaurants at the stanford hotel recommended to us. We took this advice to heart and decided to have a meal one evening. We had an excellent meal and the evening was a night to be remembered. Full marks to their executive chef who took the time to speak to personally and we will return regularly.

Dear densmi

Thank you for the wonderful restaurant review! I will certainly ensure our Chef, Daniel Smith, receives a copy of your comments. He will be chuffed!

We are very fortunate to have a Chef that will always take the time to catch up with our guests and is always very eager to receive feedback, whatever the nature of it.

We've had a wonderfully busy November, and December seems to be on the same track. We are "all systems go" with Christmas parties, Christmas Day and other events at the moment. What I would like to mention, though, is that you can now order Christmas Fare on line - turkey, ham, roast vegeatables, plum pudding and all the trimmings - cooked fresh and can be collected on Christmas Day. It's proving very popular!

Once again, thanks for choosing the Stamford Plaza for your night out! We look forward to seeing you again soon.

Stayed here Boxing day 2010 - the first day of the risning waters beefore the first major floods started to hit Brisbane. Stayed on a gift voucher provided by my boss. Fantastic modern room, one of the most comfortable beds I have slept in, and a beautiful view of Brisbane River.

Excellent service, and a fantastic buffet breakfast. A little out of the main malls, but a pretty easy walk to get there, and very close to the botonic gardens.

Excellent in every way!!

Dear Gavin W

It was lovely to read that you enjoyed you stay with us - a good night's sleep is certainly a bonus when away from home.

Our location is certainly a wonderful advantage, though unfortunately during the floods it proved the opposite. We have come a long way since then floods; we reached a fully operational level at the end of April / May and have since enjoyed a busy year and one of the busiest Novembers on record.

I'm glad you enjoyed the breakfast! I have been spotted ducking in to the restaurant for breakfast with family and friends every so often myself. Chef is currently fully engrossed in Christmas Parties and Christmas Day events and loving every minute of it!

Once again, it was a pleasure to read that you enjoyed your stay with us and we look forward to having you with us again soon,

Our 4 nights in a junior suite at the Stamford Plaza were fantastic. The views up and down the river were amazing, and we felt the extra cost was value for money in taking the suite (although at this price, I would have thought breakfast should be included!). The bed is so comfortable, and the dressing room and bathroom are just huge. We enjoyed the Pav bar, especially on Friday night when there was a live band, and Saturday afternoon when a fashion parade entertained the crowd. A small gym was perfectly adequate for our needs.
We were on the 12th floor - suggest you seek a higher floor to avoid the slightly irritating thump we heard from the DJ at a function downstairs on the Friday night. We were also unable to get bookings at the Japanese restaurant, so if you wish to eat there, I suggest you book in advance.
Overall, a really lovely hotel which we will certainly return to.

Dear KateMSydney

It was wonderful to read that you enjoyed your stay with us, especially for a slightly extended period.

We are quite proud of our guest rooms, with the Junior Suite being a very popular upgrade option when our guests are after that little something extra. For those looking to splurge, the Stamford Suite is a gem - with an outdoor eating area, separate living / bedroom and even room for a baby grand piano! The views from that room are amazing!

The Pav Bar and the Kabuki Japanese Restaurant are certainly "pumping" at the moment, with Christmas Parties and end of year functions. The weather certainly plays a part in this - both areas being lovely (and booked out) on "friendly weather" days.

I'm glad you were able to take advantage of all the facilities at the hotel. We look forward to welcoming you back soon, and hopefully we can book you in to Kabuki for dinner!

Best wishes

My partner and I spent one night here in November 2011 and wish we could have stayed longer. The ambience of the hotel has a real mediteranian, sub-tropical feel, really felt you were somewhere 'special'. Almost difficult to believe this hotel was hit by the floods, there are no signs whatsoever of flood damage, the building appears to be in excellent condition. The views from the balcony of the hotel restaurant onto the river is just magical, makes you feel worlds away from Australia. The hotel room we had was spacious and clean, with beautiful furniture and an extra large bathroom. We were just so impressed :) The only disappointment was the food at the restaurant downstairs- we had a set menu because it was included in the price of our room and it was pretty average. Otherwise, the service was good, except it did take us three telephone calls to the concierge before he delivered our ordered DVD player, which took him over 1.5 hours....that was pretty annoying. His name was Nick, would definitely be talking to someone else if we wanted anything next time we go. Would definitely return though, an absolutely amazing hotel with awesome views of the Storey Bridge. The outside pool and spa overlooks the brigde, just spectacular. Oh and the bed was AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!!!!! best sleep ever!

Room Tip: Get a room with views of the storey bridge, so worth it.

Dear Craig T

It was wonderful to read that you enjoyed your stay with us. I'm sure a good night's sleep played a part in that - there's nothing worse than having a night away not getting a full night's rest.

We were quite serioulsy damaged during the floods, however it was contained to the basement level, being the home of our carpark, power source, generators, laundry, housekeeping, engineering, kitchen and admin offices - so the heart of the hotel, so to speak. We were fully operational by the end of April, so it was a long process. However, we made it through and are cruising along just nicely now.

Our River location is definitely a bonus (aside from the above of course). I'm glad you were able to enjoy the view and hopefully took full advantage of the facilities as well.

I will certainly action your comments regarding the meal package, as well as the situation regarding the dvd player. It appears these two incidents didn't affect the overall enjoyment of your stay, which is very important to us, though thank you for bringing them to our attention.

Thank you for taking the time out to share your comments with us, and we look forward to welcoming you back again soon.

I attended a company conference last week at this hotel. The room was excellent, with woderful views of the Brisbane River. Well appointed, with a batroom bigger than the average home. The conference room was good, overlooking the awimming pool. The food provided during the conference was of high quality and the service excellent. I will stay there on any future trips to Brisbane.

Dear gribbled

It is not often that we receive feedback from our Conference guests via Trip Advisor, so thank you for taking the time to do so.

November is one of the busiest conference months in the hotel, and indeed Brisbane as a whole. We were pleased to read that the event ran smoothly and that we fed you well! The team have another busy week ahead, and are then preparing for Christmas Parties, Christmas Day and the events already booked for the new year.

We hope your next visit is not work related, so you will have time to enjoy all the facilities at your leisure.

Many thanks again and we look forward to having you with us again soon.

Best wishes

My daughter and I stayed overnight at the Stamford in Brisbane shortly after it re-opened after the devistating floods in January 2011. It really is the pick of the bunch in Brisbane. It is right on the river and the views from the rooms are delightful. The highlight of course would be dinner on the terrace at night watching the twinkling lights over the Story Bridge and river, or an early morning breakfast with that same delightful view. We stayed in room 914 and it had a great view up the river. The room is clean and spacious. However the tiles in the shower need a bit of a scrub or an update. We have been staying at this hotel over the years, hosted a wedding and a 21st and the staff are excellent. Nothing is too much for them and of course they need the tourists to come back and visit. We booked through Wotif and got a good deal

Room Tip: All the rooms we have ever stayed in at this hotel have great views and big bathrooms.

Dear SusanP196

We were very pleased to read that you enjoyed your stay with us, particularly after we had just reopened after the floods. We reached full operational status at the end of April, so it was quite a process!

The Brasserie on the River is extremely popular - especially the outdoor terrace area. Over the next few weeks, we are wonderfully busy with Christmas parties of all size and shape. Christmas Day has been fully booked for quite a while and New Years Eve is shaping up to be the same. It's such a great spot!

In relation to to your comments regarding the shower, we have just started a program targetting that specific query, so with a little attention, it will be quickly solved. Thank you for bringing it to our attention though.

It seems you have visited us on a number of occasions, for various reasons. It's great to see that on each visit we were able to assist in making the visit enjoyable and memorable. All feedback is important to us, and return guests are no exception.

We look forward to welcoming you back again soon.

Best wishes
