I rocked up to the hotel on Saturday only to find out I had made a mistake with my booking and it was for the next night. Even though I had booked through a 3rd party, the hotel staff were brilliant and fixed it all up for me. The room was amazing & I will definitely be staying again.

This hotel is ideally placed within easy walking distance of Circular Quay and the Rocks, the CBD (for great shopping) and the Botanical Gardens. My partner and I were given a stay at this glorious hotel as a gift. The package we were given was called the Celebrations package and included a night in one of their Superior rooms, a... More

Review is a little late. I stayed here for a birthday weekend in November 2014 and adored this Hotel's peace, quiet and old world charm. Check-in was a breeze, after which we had a delicious High tea down-stairs. After that we went for a swim in the (fairly small) pool and just sat on the edge enjoying the afternoon sun... More

It was our wedding anniversary and it was very nice of them to be able to give us a room with an excellent view of both the harbour bridge and the opera house. The bathroom was nice and clean, room was spacious, very comfortable indeed. We were even given a bottle of sparkling wine to celebrate our stay. We also... More

Great staff. Old world ambience. Outstanding presentation. Rooms spacious and clean. On arrival we were made to feel like regular clients. Have stayed in many up- market" hotels in Sydney over the last 30 years but had never really thought about the Sir Stanford - many years wasted. Will now make this hotel our (well deserved) Sydney City hotel stay.... More

We stayed overnight stay at Sir Stamford and were thoroughly pleased with our experience. Staff are friendly and helpful, and the hotel has a relaxed, professional feel about it. Our spacious, spotless, sunny room (716) had a Juliette balcony with an outlook across to the Botanic Gardens. The bathroom was well appointed; separate toilet, shower and bath plus double sinks...

This hotel has been a pleasant surprise! Reasonably priced, clean and spacious room, friendly staff, brilliant breakfast and no request too difficult for staff to address! Not to mention ideal location - just a short stroll from Circular Quay station. Will definitely book here again!

This was our third visit to this great little hotel located so conveniently located for the Opera House, Circular Quay, the Harbour Bridge & the overseas passenger terminal- to name just a few ! Friendly, obliging staff, big rooms(esp. bathrooms), & balconies and a great atmosphere. This time we discovered the Friday night live music in The Bar - a... More

Quant, homely and very unique. Beautiful breakfast and warm vibe you only get with a smaller hotel. Only booked at last minute and was very happy. Older style furnishings and very large bathrooms. Bar is fantastic too. Great location on circular quay. Definitely stay again.

Very much enjoyed our two nights at this boutique hotel. It was a repeat stay for us, because we love its proximity to the Quay, the Opera House, the Royal Botanic Garden, the Art Gallery of NSW and the city itself. Everything is so convenient. This small hotel oozes comfort and good old-fashioned service. The decor is conservative and homely.... More
