I was here in 2003 and when I knew I was going to be in Sydney again, I knew where I wanted to stay. And they didn't let me down. Firstly, I love the fact that you just book on their own web site as you can't get it cheaper anywhere else so you don't spend hours looking for a... More

The Sir Stamford is a classic – and the ‘class’ in classic shows through. No stuffy hotel this, it is a home from home, full of warmth and service that is friendly and respectful. Ideally situated, it is but a few minutes walk away from most of Sydney’s premier icons and then, when the walking is done, within hailing distance... More

Dear Valued Guests Sir Stamford very much appreciates your endorsement of our hotel, it's style and it's staff, as you are clearly well seasoned global travellers. Spring in Sydney is a wonderful time to visit, warm days, and cool nights. Yesterday the wonderful Frances Bacon exhibition opened at the nearby NSW Art Gallery for a 4 month long season and... More

Not too big (gracious and elegant rather than glittering), not too small (big enough to be well staffed and with a generous foyer with elegant sitting areas if you are meeting people plus good dining and a separate bar), this is a hotel with very spacious bedrooms and bathrooms, spotlessly clean, sporting quality furnishings and a genuinely comfortable beds.

I had narrowed our hotel choice down to 4 in the CBD/Circular Quay area & I am so glad we chose the Sir Stamford. Location, location, location - just a few minutes walk to Circular Quay, Sydney Opera House, The Rocks and The Botanical Gardens are just across the road. Rooms are very spacious, there is free wi-fi in the... More

We arrived early morning via a dreadful 1 hour 20 minute airport shuttle bus by KST, recommended as better and quicker than the train by Grand National Concierge at the airport! (The return was even worse, 1 hour 40 minutes, as the driver got lost - we complained and got a full refund). The hotel concierge appeared and helped bring... More

Dear Return Guests Your comments about the team are very generous and we as a team appreciate the acknowledgement.

Dear Valued Guests We do apologise for your room allocation - it's one particular room that we are trialling with all the latest gadgets to open curtains, turn on TV's and other marvelous things.
