Charm of a Bygone Era

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on August 16, 2010

The first thing that charmed us was the entrance... two lions guard the door ...there is a drive in so one can alight in comfort...and a concierge is there to assist you with luggage. And the staff were very friendly and helpful.

Set in the heart of Adelaide the foyer has a bit of an old world feel as you might expect when you realize that there is a connection with the famous Singapore Raffles Hotel. The name comes from Sir Stamford Raffles himself. A staircase and elegant yet almost empty lounges complete the picture

And there is a Ballroom but unfortunately "No Ball Tonight". There was a conference or two but that is all.

We had booked a De Luxe room with city views...well a large concrete roof was the main
view with some buildings in the background...we were not high up though and I do prefer a lower floor so I cannot really grumble.

The room was comfortable and clean...a couple of small repairs were attended promptly.

There are 3 restaurants but we were not impressed with "swish on terrace". Thought the whole food scenario was a bit 'greasy spoon'...only had breakfast otherwise and it was all right as buffet breakfasts go.

Cost of a hotel room is always a difficult one...this is in the upper range...not budget...but time of year and other factors play a part.

There is a little bit of a "tired feeling" in places but nothing a little refurbish wouldn"t fix.

Unique Quality: But what may not exactly be unique though it was was a bit unusual was the need to pass through the gaming area to arrive at the 'swish restaurant'. And it was the only place open for meals on the Sunday we arrived but it was booked out. Bit of a let down as it was cold and miserable outside.

Directions: Close to the Adelaide Casino.

Terrible (1.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on February 12, 2010

We stayed for 2 nights and were thankful when it was time to leave. We arrived on a Saturday night and were expecting a pleasant, relaxing stay as we had experienced in other Stamford properties. It was extremely busy when we checked in and excused the unfriendly and unwelcoming manner of reception due to that. We wanted to park our own car as we like to come and go as we please without the hindrance of valet parking however, apparently on week-ends you have no choice and have to take the valet parking. Not only is this forced on you but you have to pay $28 for the privilege. Of course, management would say that it is necessary because it is busy but we all know it is another opportunity to make more money.
Set aside 15 minutes to take the lift up and down and be prepared to be pushed and shoved as the guests try to get in to the lift. Finally, the lift doors opened to show us some other female guests sitting on the floor drinking and having their own party in the corridors. It was at that point we finally acknowledged this was no classy joint.
Our room supported this realisation. From the tacky cork noticeboard on the wall as you enter the room to the worn and begging for retirement furniture you just know this hotel would seriously struggle to make 3 stars. After our experience from registration where we observed the young duty manager handle problems in a dismissive manner we knew that it wouldn't be worth ringing front desk and complaining about our room. So we sucked it up, put it down to bad luck on our part as there are so many good hotels in Adelaide and we had just struck out. And no we didn' t mention when we left either as we didn't want to be accused of trying to get a refund and really this is not the sort of establishment that cares that much about guests' complaints. Location is the only positive going for it.
