The Bar can be accessed from the street - you don't have to enter the hotel. My husband and I had dinner there two nights during our week long stay in Sydney. The food was great, the entertainment was marvelous (singer on the piano), and the service was excellent. The atmosphere is amazing - you feel like you are back... More

This review is of the bar only. It is separate from the restaurant but also serves great food and has a good atmosphere with live piano music on the night we were there. We dropped in on Valentines Day in the evening. It was raining and we were hungry as we walked past. The restaurant was fully booked. So was... More

While staying for 4 nights at the Sir Stamford, Circular Quay, we dined in the Dining Room for breakfast each morning. We found the breakfast array, both hot and cold, to be to our satisfaction. There is a good variety of fresh fruit (although a little more variety to include seasonal fruits could be offered). The usual array of hot... More

Previous experience was nice but not this time. Disappointed for a fine dining restaurant. Waiter spilt red wine when pouring but the table cloth not cleaned up so we were sitting with a crisp white table cloth throughout our meal with stains. Food came out at the same time for me and my wife but hers was luke warm while... More

We tried this high tea 2 years ago and had fond memories of it so gave it another go on this visit to Sydney. Sad to say it was disappointing compared to last time. Staff seemed befuddled despite it being relatively quiet. We waited a long time for the high tea to come out from the time we were seated,... More

We ate in the dining room for breakfasts (buffet is very good - pre-order to save money) and a couple of dinners. Fairly expensive, but probably not out of line for Sydney.

We have had a High Tea on our bucket list for a little while now and l can say that we did enjoy our experience at TSS. The only thing we would have preferred is a little more savory and not so many cakes maybe a little more balance. Other than that all good for us. Thank you.

We asked for a table for 7 at that moment and were welcomed in with the most friendly service. The food was very nice and the drinks plentiful but the stand out for me was the staff. Nothing was to much trouble and they were all happy friendly and attentive. WELL DONE to the Stanford indeed.

Staying in Central Business District

Neighborhood Profile
Central Business District
The Sydney Central Business District is abuzz with energy. Power brokers run to and from high rise buildings and after-work drink places, high-end shoppers tour venues like the QVB, and fine diners frequent the many celebrity chef restaurants. For a dose of culture, walk to the NSW Art Gallery, or visit the Sydney Museum. To escape the hustle and bustle, reconnect with nature at the Sydney Botanical Gardens or picnic lunch at High Park. No matter your interest, be sure to check the full calendar of events hosted by the city, from the Sydney Festival in January to October’s Good Food Month at Hyde Park.
