“Great location, nice view, a bit noisy request a room away from king william road”
Reviewed 11 November 2013

I stayed in this hotel for a anniversary night with my partner, the room was lovely, clean, tidy and modern, had a great view even from the 5th floor.
The shower was a bit different, it took ages to get to the right temparature with decent presure and there was a rust ring on the base of the bath, but other than that fine.
Upon returning from the hotel after a lovely dinner we could hear the music pounding away at the nightclub/pub downstairs, it was clear enough that my partner and i turned the frustration into a game of guessing the next song... and we would sing along to it!
Very disapointing for a 5 star hotel... it wasn't until after 4 that i finally fell asleep to the pounds of the music!
The breakfast was a bit disapointing too, we arrived an hour and 10 minutes before the buffet closed and found little left, with the hash browns looking more like mashed potatoes.. I was presented with the incorrect coffee order (which i paid for) and we at the table for 40 minutes and none of our plates were taken away and it was not busy at all for $30+ per person. very disapointed i didn't leave the building for breakfast.
I'd hoped that the reception upon check out would ask if we enjoyed our stay, but they sadly didn't.
Overall, i wouldn't normally comment about an hotel if it was a 3-4 star, but for a 5 star i'd expect alot more.

Room Tip: The higher level the room the better, and avoid rooms close to king william street perhaps avoid if...

Dear Tamara

Thank you for all your points regarding your stay and I am so sorry there were some issues with noise from Swish and the Breakfast. We can get a large volume of guests coming all at once for Breakfast on a Sunday so I apologise that the buffet was not in its normal condition when you arrived at the time you specified.
We have taken some measures to mitgate the noise from the bar 5 floors below you so i will review these to ensure it does not re-occur.

Thank you for bringing these to my attention and I apprecaite the review you have posted.


Warm regards

Although I have stayed here 3 times now on business I would stay here on pleasure aswell as it is very central for shopping and sightseeing and the staff are friendly. Rooms very nice and clean and the pool is a great bonus.

No complaints here except their breakfast buffet is too small to accommodate the people. Service a little slow in clearing tables. Food though was great. Beds very comfortable and rooms a good size. Oddly the toilet seat was an el cheapo. A nice place to stay .

Well appointed room with comfortable bed and plenty of space. Great view over Parliament House and the park if you get a room at the front. Windows open but it's quite noisy as there is a lot of traffic on the street below. Lights are a little difficult to work out - there's a master switch at the door and that has to be on, plus to work the lights on the wall by the bed seems to need two more switches to be on. Breakfast was fairly ordinary.

Dear untakenname

Thank you for the great review. It is quite rare to have hotels these days that actually have windows that open. Higher up the hotel you can hear a bit of traffic but when the windows are closed the double glazing comes into great effect. The views over Parliament House as you said are great.
I saw your comment about breakfast.....please make sure you get our Egg Chefs to make you something special on your next visit....we would love to have you back.

The staff make this place, all staff are extremely friendly and helpful. Whether in the lift or corridor they all say hello and have a brief chat. Our room was nice, however city view was very "industrial". Plenty of places to eat in hotel and surroundings. Thoroughly enjoyed staying here and will definitely return!! Thank you for making our 12th anniversary so lovely!!

Really enjoyed staying at this hotel our room had just been renovated to a good standard everything was clean and well presented. The location was perfect, opposite the train station, near all the lovely old buildings and walking distance to the shopping and facilities of Adelaide the Breakfast was to a high standard. Special mention to the concierge who was so friendly and went out of his way to hold up a bus for us when our train was late arriving, which if we missed would have meant we missed our Murray river cruise. all staff were pleasant and helpful.

Room Tip: A room on a high floor gives great views over Adelaide.

Dear BoydsAct

We always value reviews from Senior Contributors and we really appreciate your 5 star rating of our hotel and services. The refubishment has done wonders to the rooms and they are perfect for short or long stays. We always try to give our guests a great start to the day with breakfast...... Tim on the egg station is the king of the omlette scene.

Hope you enjoyed the Murray Rover curise and we would love to have you stay with us again soon.

My husband asked me what I wanted for my birthday, and I said slippers! He said no way, we should do something, so he didn't have to ask again, I was on the internet within a short time and booked a wonderful Escape Package at the Stamford Plaza in Adelaide. We found the staff to be extremely helpful, and friendly. We ate all our meals at the hotel (2 lunches, dinner & breakfast), and they were all top class. My husband and I would certainly recommend the Hotel, and look forward to the opportunity to stay again, hopefully before my next birthday!
