Very well located hotel within walking distance to most services, amenities, restaurants and cafes. Very clean and comfortable although showing some signs of "wear and tear'. Large rooms, great service and excellent attentive staff.

Spent 4 nights here during our recent holiday. One word charming, staff were so polite and friendly. Our room was gorgeous in fact everything about this hotel was great. I heard it is to be demolished to make way for a taller building which is very sad.

We stayed there for two nights in winter. The hotel was excellent from location to service. It’s within 5 mins walking distance to the Circular Quay and Opera house. 15 minutes to Pitt street shopping mall. The staff was very friendly and polite. We only had breakfast from here and the food was exceptional. We also loved the hotel décor.... More

An old hotel that is clean, comfortable and spacious with the best customer service I have ever experienced. Both room-service breakfast and dinner was of a very high standard. Ability to open window was an added bonus.

Sir Stamford oozes grace and charm. A roaring log fire in the lobby on a cold evening was a nice touch. The hotel is incredibly conveniently located about a five minute walk from Circular Quay. We came for a weekend away to celebrate a birthday and stayed four nights. You can take a train from the International airport straight to... More

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.).
