My partner and I stayed here for the launch of Vivid in Sydney 2014. Ahead of time I contacted the hotel with a few special requests. I was taken care of by Con, who replied to my email very quickly and was only ever too happy to help. We had a few timing changes on the day, but the staff... More

I stayed here for work and this hotel is the best so far. Quiet, spacious, comfortable room. Good breakfast with nice espresso coffee. Lobby had cosy fire. Walking distance to work for me, but also close to gardens, Circular Quay and everything there. My only minor comment was the dial to adjust air conditioning temp seemed broken but temperature ok...

This is a lovely hotel literally around the corner from Circular Quay. It is an older style hotel, but we found service and comfort was wonderful. The concierge was most helpful trying to get a late ticket for a Sydney show and reception staff were always friendly. The room was a superior room that was very spacious and overlooked MacQuarie...

Fabulous location with an easy short walk to Opera House, Ferries, gardens and trains. Staff was very attentive to our needs such as complimentary umbrellas, ideas for dinner, smiles and friendly toward the young kids, ideas for what to do during rain, how to use the trains, etc. Rooms were roomy and very clean (and we are picky.).

We stayed at the Sir Stamford hotel for 3 nights. We had a harbour view suite and the room was lovely- views over the botanic gardens and harbour and from the balcony we could see the opera house. Circular quay is a fantastic location for being able to walk to key attractions and take ferries from the quay. There were... More

Stay at the Sir Stamford for 4 nights in March, which was my first trip to Sydney. Having spent a long time researching hotels and asking friends in Sydney we chose this hotel based on it's location of the hotel. We were NOT disappointed! The hotel is a charming boutique type hotel, in a fantastic location just off Circular Quay... More

For those jaded of modern aluminium and glass hotels, there’s an oasis of old world spacious charm in Sydney. Sir Stamford at Circular Key, once the Carlton Ritz has changed very little. The original style and decoration have been retained all to the good. A large lounge complete with a warming fire, a grand piano, and gilt framed paintings, welcome... More

Wonderful location, mostly friendly staff, spacious and well appointed rooms, reasonably priced. The lobby takes you back to a "gentler era" warm, old English settings, comfy chairs. Marble bathrooms, dual sinks, nice desk for writing. How can you go wrong - right? The shower is a major disappointment. The separate controls are hard to figure out, the ability to get... More

We stayed here for the weekend, wasn't great but certainly wasn't bad either. Very warm feeling as you enter past reception however felt it was in need of a refurbishment. Bathroom looked nice initially with a marble look and all however had a simple SHOWER CURTAIN over that bath/ shower???? We were offered a full buffet breakfast at a cost... More

Just love this place - the location, the staff, the ambience. We came up to Sydney on a Friday for the football, and although we arrived early via the Airport Train, into what we believe is the most spectacular and picturesque railway station Circular Quay. A few hundred metres away on the hill is the Sir Stamford. We were able... More
