The best aspect of a stay at Sir Stamford is its location. Right across the road from Sydney's Royal Botanic Gardens and just up from the restaurants and ferry piers at Circular Quay, we had all bases covered.
The room was huge and the double vanities in the walk-through bathroom gave us plenty of space.
We didn't have breakfast included in our stay but it wasn't a problem to pop to one of many options at the Quay or over at The Rocks, and that gave us more freedom with the structure of our mornings for the three days we were there.
We'd highly recommend a wander through the market at The Rocks, if it's a regular set-up. A large range of items, many of which we thought would've made good Christmas gifts to give, if only we had the room in our suitcase.
The gym at Sir Stamford is OK. We ended up including a jog in the gardens in our workouts as that's a far nicer setting than a treadmill indoors.
Although we were there in December, it didn't prove warm enough to use the pool but that looked nicely situated, with some loungers nearby on the rooftop.
The reception staff and concierge were helpful and courteous at all times.
