NEW HOTEL SEARCH
out of 15 reviews
We went for my wifes birthday as a surprise. I asked them to place a bottle of champagne in the room for when we arrived later in the evening and when we got there they had also placed some petit fours with the chilled champagne. A great little surprise! The service is excellent and the rooms wonderful with fantastic views of the river. Would definitely stay there again.
It was disappointing that a hotel of this standing charged a hefty price for in-room wireless internet service and gave no option for a free morning newspaper; services that are mostly included in other comparable hotels worlwide.
“The Perfect Choice”
After many confusing web-searches, i realize the Stamford Plaza was the perfect choice for my 3-day stay in Brisbane. The hotel is gorgeous, exceeded only by the meandering riverview from my room. The location is perfect for stretching out after a long flight: miles of nearby walkways lined with cafes, adjacent to a city park, and an easy walk to a nearby pier where you can hop-on and hop-off any CityCat, ferry, bus, or train all day long (that puts everything within easy reach) -- i even jumped on a Cat with luggage in tote to reach the cruise terminal, skirting a $40 taxi fare. Staff gave me a free toothbrush & toothpaste, and discounts to the hotel breakfast, when the airlines sent my luggage to the wrong country. Only slight negative: housekeeping needs to use clorox on minor shower grout mold (a strange finding for such an awesome manor).
“Ideal location in Brisbane”
We would thoroughly recommend the Stamford Plaza Hotel if you visiting Brisbane (which we would also strongly recommend - it's better than Sydney!). The hotel has a modern exterior but the interior has a more traditional feel. It is exceptionally clean and tidy and the staff are very helpful. You could not ask for a better location as it is ideally positioned right on the river, near the riverside restaurants and next to the excellent botanical gardens. Rates were very reasonable for this standard of hotel.
“Our usual haunt whilst in Brisbane”
This is our 3rd or 4th visit to the Stamford as we find its location to be ideal for what we want to do. We are not very demanding customers when it comes to the consumption of hotel services but having said that we always find that the concierge desk to be most courteous and helpful. The TV in the bathroom was not wroking and even though we reported it and a service amn came directly, by the end of our stay it was still not working. This did not bother us unduly though. I do think it is time to update the room with a new flat-screen TV and replace those enormous TV/service cabinets. We see no reason not to return to this establishment. Thanks Stamford for yet another pleasant stay. Paul and Elizabeth Corboy, New Zealand
Excellent hotel in a very good location close to shops, gardens and the river restaurants and bars
Nice room with river and pool views. Staff excellent and flexible. Top rates with expedia.com.au when staying for more than one night.
“Great hotel choice for Brisbane”
The hotel is in a central location, close to city stores & some great Brisbane restaurants. Bike hire is only minutes away. Riverside walk & ferries are at the door. Markets are close by. Rooms are comfortable & spacious. Service is very good. Breakfast had a large selection, restaurant may have been a bit under staffed though. All in all, its a very good hotel.
“Stamford Plaza, April 2010”
Stamford is excellently loacted and a nice play to stay. The old Siggy's restaraunt is close which is a shame. Otherwise it was a very pleasant stay.
The Stamford in Brisbane is an excellent hotel with matching serviced standards. Not only is it conveniently located adjacent to the Botanical Gardens it is also easy walking distance to the city, bars and nightclubs.
