I would like to thank the Sir Stamford and all of its staff for the amazing service. I have checked in today for a night in the city for my Birthday, and what was a stay for convenience, has now become an amazing experience, making my day! Not only is the hotel and rooms beautiful, with water and opera house... More

I have now stayed at the Stamford 5 times and I do feel it like a place I am very much at home in. All the staff are wonderfully accommodating, and helpful at all times. I would like to thank you for dealing with the problem I mentioned in a previous review about the cable TV channels in the rooms.... More

My husband and I stayed here in July last year. The location is amazing and so central to everything. Situated in sydneys " the rocks " you have to really start your day early to try and fit everything into one day. As we only stayed for 1 night it would of been better to have booked for 3 nights....

We visited the Sir Stamford again as our base for the Sydney Herald Half Marathon. Nothing was too much trouble, late check out, storage of baggage, an earlier breakfast and even better, a room upgrade. I think this hotel will now be our place of choice to stay in Sydney. It is much better than a large impersonal hotel and... More

Well, you definitely cant beat this hotel for location! Only seconds to Circular Quay and minutes to Pitt St Mall and George Street. Rooms on a higher floor get you away from street noise and you get a better view. Service was a bit 'meh' but you get that. However, my housekeeping lady was just adorable. Room quality was okay...

Exceptional location for first visit to Sydney: large quiet room with views of Opara House and gardens! Very helpful and friendly staff. Would definitely recommend especially after long international flight.

When in Melbourne I usually stay at the Stamford Plaza and the Sir Stamford is a great extension to the Stamford family. Beautifully appointed with the quality furnishings and quality fit out that makes you feel that you are staying in a period hotel but with the modern necessities too. Comfortable beds. Faultless for cleanliness. Great location; only a short... More

The Stamford was perfect for us. The staff were friendly and efficient, the location was outstanding, the continental breakfast was excellent and reasonably priced, the room was clean and comfortable and the front desk staff (in particular Matt) were obliging and friendly. We have no negatives.

Great place to stay in Sydney with an old world charm. Friendly staff, great location, nice bar to relax in. No hesitation in staying here again! Some cafes and restaurants in the local streets. Walking distance to Opera House and Circular Quay!

Booked a Superior King Room (703) for two nights with a Celebration Package. Check in was handled by two separate staff members as we were about 30 minutes early who were both very pleasant. We went through to The Pub for High Tea which was excellent (as were staff). The detracting feature however was the rather dilapidated state of the... More

Dear Margere1_2, Thank you very much for taking the time and providing feedback. Whilst I am pleased to note that our front desk and food and beverage staff upheld our high service standards, I am dissapointed to note that our furniture looked tired. These maintenance issues should not have happened, as all of our rooms and public areas of the... More
