“Great location in the city”
Reviewed 18 February 2014

Located on the river bank between the city and Botanic Gardens, it doesn't get much better than that! Walk anywhere in the city, and you can still enjoy a nature stroll in the gardens and a breakfast downstairs overviewing the river and passing boats. The hotel itself was a grandeur in its younger days, now a bit tired but still very well maintained. Nice rooms, spacious enough; complimentary L'Occitane toiletries (loved these); several restaurants and bars downstairs. They have weekend specials that include parking and a bottle of Moët, which is great if you want a relaxing weekend getaway. All in all, it was very enjoyable.

My wife and I stayed overnight to celebrate my birthday and we couldn't have chosen better.
The accommodation, location and service were all so outstanding, that we felt that we had enjoyed a complete holiday in just one afternoon and night.
Faultless!

If you're looking for a quick getaway, with great places to go, that are right at your doorstep with a beautiful place to stay that has great views out your window. Then the Stamford Plaza Brisbane is a great place to stay. The hotel is a grand old lady with 5 star dining and charming bars to get a drink. Great buffet breakfast. Centrally placed in Brisbane. With the day to explore the city, the river and gardens plus Fortitude Valley then back to the hotel for a perfect view of the Story Bridge and when the sun goes down it is picture perfect. At night the city comes alive with Friday night shopping in the city and with so many bars and restaurants to choose from you're sure to find something special to make your night a night to remember.

Room Tip: Booking direct with the hotels, I find, you get told about special deals that a running

5 stars all the way. Great location. You can go running behind the hotel in the mornings behind the hotel near the waterfront. Rooms are excellent. Nothing really to complain about. Very clean. Some of their staff seem a little new or unsure of how to go about things. Had to wait a while (around 5-7 mins) to be seated for breakfast as there was not one upfront. They serve if you ask.The breakfast by itself was excellent. Otherwise had no other need to deal with the staff. BTW this hotel is in downtown Brisbane and the place pretty much dies out at 5.00 PM. There are no quick grab a bite places, all very formal dine in places. Had to take a bus twice to go in to find something to eat, but Brisbane is in a nice part of town and the CityCat is always fun to take!

Average sums up our stay. Service was okay, breakfast was a disappointment and the rooms were in desperate need of renovation. The iron and TV didn’t work properly. Not a 5-star hotel experience by any stretch of the imagination, despite the price we paid. Will stay elsewhere next time we are in Brisbane.

Dear Rachel P,

Thank you for providing feedback on your stay with us. I am disappointed to read your stay was only average as this is certainly not what we aim for. Please accept my sincere apologies for this. I will be addressing your comments with the department heads. I am pleased to advise we do have a refurbishment planned for this year and I hope we may have the opportunity to welcome you back in the future to enjoy our new rooms and provide you with the 5 star service we are known for.

Best Regards,

Philippe

My husband and I had a chance for a romantic night out without the children !. Stayed at the Stamford at least 6 years ago, but remembered what a wonderful time we had so decided to go again. It was marvellous. The Stamford is dignified beauty & luxury. The staff were lovely. The room was great, had all the little extras that make your stay so much more comfortable. Thank you for making our night wonderful.
