Booked in to see two Sydney shows. Hotel was really close to circular quay and handy to many restaurants and shops. Rooms good size, but very old furniture, even worn out with actual holes in the arms of the chairs. Went to the bar and there is holes in the wall paper very dated and desperately in need of a...

We stayed here one night prior to a cruise. We took the train from the airport on the instructions of our son and it was quite doable but to be honest would have payed the extra 10 dollars or so not to have dragged our suitcases from the station. It is only about six minutes but the last few feet... More

Stayed for 2 nights at the Sir Stamford Circular Quay based on Tripadvisor reviews and wasn't disappointed. For the duration of our stay all staff were friendly and helpful, helping us with wifi and making restaurant reservations. The hotel throughout looked great scattered with antiques and marble, it had a certain feel of elegance. All areas from the room to... More

Booked a VERY last-minute stay here for one night (my last in Sydney, so wanted to treat myself) and boy am I glad I chose this place. The room was huge with a small balcony/windows you could open for fresh air. The staff was SO nice and accomodating. Location can't be beat, although as a single woman traveler it's a... More

We stayed at the Sir Stamford for three nights before heading off on a cruise. We got there early, hoping to just stow our bags, but they said if we were willing to take a nicer room, but on a lower floor, we could check right in. We also had a little anniversary perk from them, thanks to a note... More

Historic small hotel with a great location----walking distance to the Opera House, Botanical Garden, Sydney Harbour, and Hyde Park. Loved the 18th-century antiques and furnishings in the lobby. The rooms were large and comfortable. The concierge and hotel receptionists were all extremely helpful and friendly. We appreciated the loan of large hotel umbrellas that came in handy on rainy days.... More

This has to be the best place to stay in Sydney. The moment you walk into this hotel you know they are serious about providing a great experience for their customers. All areas -the front desk, the concierge staff and room staff are excellent. Everytime you walk in and out the front door the conciege staff are there to answer... More

This hotel is handy to restaurants and attractions, an easy walk into shops too. We had a stunning view of the harbour and the bridge from our corner room but the room smelt musty and old and the furniture needs an update. Still it was only for the one night so could cope.
