Every six months my lovely lady and I visit Sydney and we do not even look to stay anywhere else. The Sir Stamford has it all - great staff, great location, good prices by bookibg early, superb beds, a Bar, restaurant, and pool. Walk in 5 minutes to the Opera House, Botanic Gardens, Ferries, Trains, The Rocks and what else do you need?
Mid Autumn and the pool was heated nicely - a tip - turn on the sauna before you go in the pool and it will be lovely and warm when you come back to it after your swim. We were in the pool at 10 at night and it was as warm as the afternoon.
The front office staff, concierges, and Bar Staff are Just Brilliant!!. And the forgotten staff who clean the rooms - we mentioned one morning that we were going out for an hour to walk and by the time we came back the room had been remade and set up. Large rooms, huge bathrooms, beds so comfortable you won't want to get up and depending on the room, great views.
Tips - If coming from the airport use the train, it took us over an hour by taxi! There is a short hill to climb but I am 70 and did it two or three times a day.
Talk nicely with the staff and they will really look after you.
TRay The Bar menu as well as the restaurant - we had satay sticks that were just yummy followed by 3 sorts of ice cream. There are no calories in The Bar !
Try the pool and sauna especially after dark.
If you don't want to eat at the hotel try CoCo's opposite the railway station - bacon and eggs aplenty.
I cannot find anything to criticise after so many visits - they just get better and better.
