Easy to find by car, no problem in dropping off luggage and parking is just around the corner (at $40 per night). All staff very friendly and helpful. Nice lobby, although a bit more seating space would be handy. We were upgraded to a 10th (top) floor room with harbour views and free wifi (which is, sadly, not standard). Breakfast was slightly above the usual buffet average. The building has character: built in the 1890s as a government office. As other reviewers have noted, location is perfect ... Read more

We recently travelled to Sydney for a wedding and found this hidden gem by chance. On special for 30 minutes on a web site we grabbed it and it was great. If you are flying in the airport train will drop you at circular quay which is only a 3 minute walk away or it's an easy run in a taxi or car. Walking into the hotel via the red carpet on the footpath you are greeted by a wombat with a top hat! All the staff were extremely welcoming and check in was a breeze.

My partner and I stayed here for two nights and were pleasantly surprised. The staff were uniformly friendly and helpful, above and beyond the call of duty. Our room was spacious and comfortable, and we loved the clean 4-piece bathroom. Great location, steps away from the waterfront. If you want an old-school, cosy, well-priced, and welcoming stay whole you're in Sydney, this is a very good place to consider!!

This hotel oozes old world charm of the Art Deco era. Beautiful fire place in the lobby. I stayed in room 208 which was very spacious and had a large lounge room and bedroom with a decent sized bathroom, hall and powder room. The only negative was the car park. The lift was out of order which meant we had to haul luggage up stairs then walk in the pouring rain to access the hotel...

Sir Stamford hotel has the conservative ambience of yesteryear. Quiet, calm, polite atmosphere meant all aspects of check in and out were easy and smooth.

Pleasant place, close in to CBD and Circular Quay. Room was large. Sitting room seemed pleasant, but I didn't have the opportunity to enjoy it. Staff were very helpful and friendly. Had a good sleep. My only "gripe" is that the room was a little dark in the evening, even with all the lights on - but this seems to be common in a lot of hotels I have stayed in.

Booked a "room with a view" and most rooms have balconies. Reality is no view unless a building and the Cahill Expressway counts, no balcony either. When I mentioned my disappointment i was taken to another room which looked out onto Macquarie Street on the second floor and still no balcony.

Can't argue with the great location, and the staff were really friendly, but this place is in serious need of an interior makeover. It's easy to see what they are trying to do, trying to make the most of the formerly grand bones of the building, but it could very easily be refreshed, and made much nicer, with a decent paint job and general tidy up. Also loses a star for wi-fi not coming standard with the room. This day and age, in a first world country, that should just be part of the package.

The hotel needs a refresh. The decor in places is faded and torn, wallpaper which needs replacing and so on.

We stayed for 2 nights during a church event at the Sydney Opera House. Our 9th floor room was remarkably quiet. My son loved playing the grand piano in the main foyer. My wife loved the marbled bathroom. We look forward to staying at Sir Stamford again!

Gorgeous lounges with open fires and magazines. Pianist in the lounge on Friday evening was fabulous. Provided a late check out and all day baggage hold.

We didn't regret booking here at Sir Stamford. From checking in with friendly staff, to getting the room freshened up every day during our stay upto our last day and checking out, every service was excellent. The kids enjoyed the heated pool, received free wifi during the whole stay and the location is very convenient. Definitely worth paying for.

I was given a huge suite which was nice but it was cold and took ages to heat up because it was so large. Restaurant was closed on a Monday night which I thought was poor, the in-room dining was awful - bad food, small amounts, and I had to call down to ask them to bring up some salt. The in-room dining menu only applied 11am-11pm and then there was a very limited selection outside those times. I could not get a pre-packed breakfast to go to the airport with before 6.30am either.

Stayed here with my wife for our 5th wedding anniversary for 2 nights. Room was excellent with fabulous bathroom & good view off the balcony overlooking some of the bay / harbour bridge. What really makes the place is it's location; just a couple of minutes walk from the Opera house & from Circular Quay train station, and botanical gardens start just over the road. Definitely recommend.

This is a very fine hotel in a sensational location. The rooms are spacious and light-filled with lots of quality touches ~ I loved the marble bathroom with full size bath. The staff manage to be warm and welcoming as well as highly professional. Breakfast is wonderful in the sun filled dining room. Location is splendidly central and is within easy walking distance of the harbor, opera house and botanical gardens as well as the CBD. A gorgeous place.

We have been staying on and off at the Sir Stamford for several years and have given glowing reports on the hotel. Under the manager Heather it was top-notch, tightly run and any problems were efficiently dealt with - not that there were many. Unfortunately, this didn't seem to be the case these last couple of years. A reason, as told to us by staff, was that the manager was having to commute between several hotels. If this is correct, it's an extraordinary policy for an industry that has a co... Read more

I love this hotel. Firstly, it's in an excellent position. You can walk to Circular Quay in one minute which puts you right in the place you want to be, Secondly, it's elegant without being pretentious. The rooms are huge, the staff are friendly and down to earth and there isn't the hustle and bustle you have with some hotels these days. I wouldn't stay anywhere else if I need to go to Sydney

My partner and I were here several years ago whilst staying in Sydney for an Opera rectal. Very comfortable and close to all the Arts facilities in Sydney. Any time in the future, if needing to stay in this region, I would book here again. Facilities and staff were worthy of their rating. More than just comfortable.

For the price, room condition, location, view from window and other things are just wonderful. As is graded in Tripadvisor, this hotl is so good to stay. There are so many world-wide famous hotels in Circular Quey Sydney. However, value/price ratio of this Stamford Hotel is probably far above these famous Hotels.

This is a lovely older hotel, graceful, convenient, just a few minutes walk from circular quay and the Opera House. The ease of access to any events is incredible. My room was up high and had a fantastic view. It overlooked gardens and the harbour, where were many different watercraft making their way lazily or speedily this way and that; ferries, speedboats, sailboats, tourist boats and occasional ships.

I was expecting a basic hotel in a well-trodden area but was very pleased to find a well-appointed, if somewhat older-styled hotel, beautifully positioned and very well staffed. The room was large, clean and very comfortable. Breakfast was hearty and well presented. Within walking distance of Circular Quay and the Opera House. More than met my needs. Strongly recommend.

One of the best in Sydney. No view but tea room is lovely and the food and silver service was very special. Good champagne and great selection of teas. Very special for a birthday celebration. Staff were great and service very good. Enjoyed the relaxing environment and felt very spoilt. The food is definitely better than other places in Sydney CBD for high tea.

We had booked the Sir Stanford on Booking.com in February. We chose this hotel as we had stayed there before and we knew the location was perfect for the Sydney Half Marathon. They rang me at 3.50pm the day before our stay to tell me the room was not available. They had booked us into another nice hotel but in a far less convenient location(at no extra cost). I would not be so annoyed but I received no real reason for being bumped. I can only assume there was a better offer for our room.

Great hotel in a very convenient location. Nice large rooms and large bathroom. The large balcony was also a nice surprise.

This is a long review, but for any potential travellers please do read carefully as this hotel is not what you would expect for a five-star "luxury" hotel with five-star prices. I intend on sharing these thoughts with management at the hotel as there needs to be a serious examination of the service provided here.
