We recently stayed at the Stamford and thoroughly enjoyed the hotel. For the first couple of days we rarely saw another guest. A small boutique hotel that has loads of character with charming staff. On arrival I had a slight problem accessing the television, but within minutes of my call to the front desk there was help at my door.... More

We stayed at the Sir Stamford because we wanted to be close to Circular Quay and it absolutely delivered on that! Unfortunately, because we had an extra guest for one of the nights, I booked via phone instead of online. The website offered lots of deals (eg Summer Breakfast for $1) but I was advised none of those were available... More

Initially, I was torn between this hotel and the more expensive Radisson located nearby, but I think we made the right choice by saving the money and opting for Sir Stamford. I was looking for a reasonably priced hotel close to Circular Quay and within the CBD. Sir Stamford certainly fit the bill in terms of location as it's literally... More

My husband and I stayed here on the first night of our honeymoon as we were sailing out on a cruise to Singapore from Circular Quay the following day. The location is ideal! The hotel is full of old world charm. We opted for the romance package; rose petals on the bed and in the bathtub, strawberries, chocolates and other... More

My wife and I stayed at the Sir Stamford at Circular Quay for 5 nights. We paid for a suite, which was very spacious and had view from the balcony of the Opera House. While the location and room size were very good, we were quite disappointed overall. In entering the hotel, it smelled old and moldy (my wife is... More

We greatly enjoyed our stay in this hotel. Our room was clean and bright with good views, staff were very friendly and helpful, and the breakfasts were plentiful and good. The only down side was the very expensive WIFI. Considering the price we paid for our room, we felt that WIFI should be included. Most top quality hotels now include... More

Very traditional hotel with friendly staff, something of a change from high rise luxury hotels around Sydney. Rooms are showing signs of ageing but are well maintained and beds were comfortable. Stones throw away from Sydney CBD.

We stayed here while our friends stayed at the very Amercanized Marriott. Felt like a quaint, English boutique hotel. Great location...a 5 minute walk to the Opera House! Staff was excellent, especially Mad and Teri! We will stay here again next trip Down Under!
