We booked a quick night in the city as my husband had a conference to attend. I have never stayed here before and on the Internet it looked like my granny's house but the rate was great so we booked it. It just proves that you should never judge a book by its cover. Yes the decor is fussy but... More

Lovely room and very helpful staff. A classic hotel convenient enough to the airport yet in sight of the oPera hOuse and harbour bridge. Great restaurant although it was shut on Sunday night which was a bit of a pain. Still the local restaurants were within easy walking distance. Laundry done on time and everything clean and at a reasonable... More

This is a beautiful hotel, politely and helpfully run and in an excellent location right next to Circular Quay, Opera House and Botanical Gardens. It is gorgeous! The rooms are elegant and efficiently setup, although it took me a while to fine the mini fridge artfully disguised in a chest of antique-look drawers. The juliet balconies allow opening French doors... More

Nice homely hotel perfect for a cold winter stay. Larger than normal size rooms are the point of difference and the furnishings. Great location for tourism. Less so business district unless in financial end. Aim for floors above 7 to get views of parkland and harbour.

I had to struggle myself with my bags from the taxi then up the stairs, there was NO help around. When I got to reception the service was great, my bags were taken up for me and the porter was wonderful. The room itself was not even fit for 3 stars! The wallpaper was smelly and peeling off, the bed... More

I usually stay at the Stamford when in Brisbane. I have always been treated there as an honoured guest, and that experience has only been enhanced as a Senator Club member. How very different was our recent experience at Circular Quay Stamford. Suffice to say that I will not be staying there again.

Visited with our two young kids in the lead up to Xmas. We all had a fantastic time. A great location for getting around all of the Sydney attractions. The kids particularly enjoyed the swimming pool on the roof and the hot chocolates in bed :)
