                Location. Ambiance

                We had family members for a $600 seafood buffet lunch as a farewell as we were leaving the country for two years. After lunch we took the grandparents upstairs to spend some quality time and to see the view/room. I was very disappointed our room had not been madeup/cleaned (coffee cups, wine glasses, bed, bathroom, etc) I called housekeeping who came relatively quickly, but 4 of us tried to sit in the small area whilst the friendly, young man did his best to scoot around us and clean! Positive is that our 80+ grandparents decided they would like to have their birthdays there. (Dot Hanley and Jim Smart) and enjoy the luxury.

              • Older travelers
                9.2

                Loved being in walking distance of everything. Our view was also spectacular,

                For 3 nights, did not understand why the 3 rd night was so much more expensive ( over $100 more??) especially as we were staying on an extra 2 nights with a group booking.

              • Older travelers
                7.4

                Location,river views,helpful staff.

                Ordered morning newspapers not delivered. Early morning noise from trademens activity within the hotel was extremely annoying.

                The view an spaciousness of the room

                The bathroom television didn't work and the buffet breakfast is highly overpriced

                Nice hotel in a good location and with good service.

                The shower over the bath arrangement is really dangerous. I am not tall and don't have legs like a giraffe. There is a wide ledge to step over (at bath height) to access the shower. I stepped over and slipped. I am now sporting a bad bruise. The consequences could have been more serious. I also thought the Foyer smelt funny; I don't know whether it is there cleaning fluid but it isn't good. At $399 per night I don't expect these problems.

                Most of the Staff were very helpful and conducted themselves in a very professional and friendly manner. The room was very comfortable and we had a beautiful view of the City and Brisbane River

                Waiting for my poached eggs for breakfast (Sunday morn 25 Mar 12). I had to ask three different staff in the Restaurant before they were delivered to my table (very late). I am not sure what the problem was, there were not a lot of other Diners present at the time.

                Old world charm Nicely presented spacious room and bathroom Friendly efficient staff Great location for dining, shopping and walking

                Mouldy smell from bathroom drains. Bathroom towels very poor quality. Full breakfast in dining room not hot enough and some hot dishes had not been replenished in trays (even though it was only 8:30), selection very average for price and no dedicated reception staff, we waited at doorway quite sometime before a staff member came to seat us.

                The confusion over the complimentary drinks voucherss. The bar staff made it clear they didn't like them and didn't want to explain what a "standard" beer is. The reception staff also didn't understand that the bar staff didn't understand. This is VERY poor staff training and very confusing for the customer.

                The whole atmosphere at the Stamford Plaza.

                The key to our room door did not work and it took three (3) trips to reception to have it fixed.
