We stayed at the Sir Stamford for my mother in-laws 60th birthday in Sept 2009. The service was excellent right from the start. We booked directly with the hotel to ensure we got the rooms we wanted - overlooking the botanical gardens & middle harbour... wonderful! There were several phone calls back & forth making arrangements and answering our many questions, and the service was excellent every time. Our planned events started in the morning & understandably we couldn't check in, however they let us leave our bags at the hotel and use the hotel facilities. They also made sure that we had at least one room ready by mid-morning so we could all get changed for the opera matinee. The remaining rooms were ready by the time we got back. The rooms were large & beautifully decorated, matching the style of the hotel.
We booked our breakfast ahead of time & our group was ushered into a separate room adjoining the main dining area. Luckily we did, because other people just coming down for breakfast had to wait for a table to become available. Meals were slow coming out of the kitchen, but the buffet kept us busy until it arrived.
Minor criticisms - our planned dinner at Level 41 had to be cancelled due to one of the party members becoming ill, so at short notice we dined at the in-house restaurant. There was a wedding reception on the same night so meals in the dining room were very slow coming out & very little service. We served our own wine & bread rolls until our meals came.
Also there is no internal access from the car park into the hotel lobby (except for staff) so getting from the car to the lobby required umbrellas (on our rainy days).
The remainder of our stay more than made up for these & we would have no hesitation in staying there again if we need to be on that side of the city.
