Ended up here as a result of a Secret Hotel deal on lastminute.com - so you don't know where you're staying until you pay. I've never stayed here before but oh boy it has the goods. The concierge was straight onto parking my car for me, check-in was straightforward and there was a cosy fire in the lobby. For an... More

I originally decided to stay at the Sir Stamford because of the location, it is 5 minutes walk from the Opera house and ferry port making visiting all the tourist attractions easy and convenient. However the location was just one of the good things about this hotel. Service was great, we arrived late at night after a long flight from... More

This is everything other reviews say: a great boutique hotel experience, one of the last in Sydney and an increasingly rare experience here. And soon to become rarer: this Sir Stamford is about to go the Sydney way. We're staying here now, and the development application is posted outside - demolition of the unlisted part of the building (the hotel)... More

My daughter and I travelled to Sydney to experience some of Sydney's sights and to see a show. As it was our first trip to Sydney, I chose Sir Stamford mainly for it's proximity to the Opera House and sights around Circular Quay and The Rocks. What an inspired choice that turned out to be! The location perfect, the room... More

Very spacious rooms .. elegant lobby .. close the Opera house and the harbor area but far away from life area and the city center, very quit, the bathroom is huge in size. The view is nice. I would recommend this hotel for family with number of kids

I have been having email conversations with Con at this motel regarding our potential booking. He could not have been more helpful or patient with all my questions. Living in regional NSW..the cost of visiting Sydney for our family is always hard. We were unable to afford staying here in the end...but the communication from Con was outstanding. He was... More

Although my wife and I have enjoyed staying at many hotels over the years (with Tripadvisor's advice) I have not taken the time to write all the reviews I should. However, the Sir Stamford deserves an excellent review and I feel it is worth my time to give it. We have just stayed 3 nights for our 25th Wedding Anniversary... More

We have only ever stayed in one other hotel in Sydney and that was before staying here,after our first visit we have not stayed anywhere else in the harbour city,the old world charm is just beautiful,and the staff so attentive in all parts of the hotel we would not consider staying anywhere else in Sydney
