On our recent trip to Adelaide, AJ and I loved staying at Glenelg Beach so much, I was determined to find an accessible hotel to review so I could share it with you. We popped into the Stamford Grand Hotel Adelaide at Glenelg Beach and had the opportunity to have a look at one of the accessible rooms. Located opposite the beach, within easy reach of restaurants and with a beachside promenade at the doorstep, the hotel is ideal for wheelchair users or anyone with mobility restrictions.
The Stamford Grand offers guests luxury beachside accommodation with the convenience of an accessible tram service to the heart of Adelaide just around the corner.
Although I’d hate to have the job of cleaning the windows, they offer guests opportunities to appreciate the unobstructed views of the ocean and Glenelg Jetty from many vantage points within the hotel, including the lobby and the Promenade Restaurant.
The accessible accommodation is tastefully decorated, bright and spacious with room to transfer on either side of the bed.
Tea and coffee making facilities are conveniently located in a drawer at a good height for wheelchair users to access.
A safe is located in the wardrobe and is at a lowered height.
The accessible bathroom is spacious with a roll-in shower, height adjustable shower head, lever taps and grab rails throughout.
The bathroom sink has wheelchair access and a lever tap. There’s room on one side of the toilet for transferring.
Enlarged, easy access light switches are located at a good distance to reach from the bed.
The accessible rooms are on the city side of the hotel.
Although we only popped in, we feel the hotel has a lovely welcoming atmosphere and the fabulous accessible features make this a great choice for visitors, or locals looking for a staycation in Adelaide.

The Stamford Grand is in a prime position for guests to make the most of a stay in Glenelg. Everything is within easy reach and it’s an absolute pleasure having such wide level pathways to walk or wheel along to enjoy the views of the beach.
Sunset and sunrise was my favourite time of day to be at the beach.
