It is a classically styled hotel with a great restaurant and helpful staff. Not too far from the airport and in sight of the Opera House and Sydney house Harbour Bridge. Choice of local, eating places as well as shops. The laundry service done on time and nicely presented!

We were looking around the museums in Sydney and came across the parlor at the Sir Stamford where we had High Tea. We chose the Chandon version and for a little over $50 p/h we had a glass of champagne, savory sandwiches and salmon, assorted cakes and slices, and warm scones with jam and cream. The tea we chose was... More

We chose to dine in the Dining Room for our evening meals three times whilst we were staying in the Sir Stamford Circular Quay Hotel on a recent visit to Sydney and were very happy on all occasions with the meals we selected. We chose the $49 two course meal which included a glass of wine and we were happy... More

Really lovely experience - the way high tea should be. A cosy setting, elegant wait staff and delicious and fancy looking food

I attended the high Tea with a group of friends last Sunday. I was the first to arrive and I was taken aback by the shabby upholstery on the arm chairs. The staff tried to be helpful but were quite inexperienced. I tried to order wine, the tea rooms are in the main Bar of the hotel, but they'd 'run... More

The deluxe devonshire high tea was nice but unfotunately the staff were very uninterested in their jobs. I was not greeted or shown to my table; our group of 8 had two menus; our Waiter named Jamel always avoided us and didn't offer to take our orders or check if we needed anything. He just seemed uninterested in serving anyone... More

If you are looking form comfortable and classy hotel in an excellent location the Sir Stamford is a great choice. This is not a chrome and hard surfaces style hotel. The style is traditional - soft furnishings, lovely fabrics, comfortable lounges. The rooms are charming and spacious, and many have terrific views over the Harbour or the Botanic Gardens.

We stayed four nights as part of the Odysseys Unlimited tour of Australia and found this hotel simply outstanding! Where do I begin….. we arrived early afternoon and were promptly checked in and our luggage delivered to the room. We asked concierge for suggestions for lunch and most places were closed due to a public holiday. The General Manager who... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner. The Dining Manager is very friendly, helpful and is extremely good at her job. The full breakfast next morning was also good.
