Old world charm

Posted Apr 16, 2015
We loved our stay at the Sir Stamford. Beautiful old building in a wonderful location. The staff were very helpful and friendly; the room was gorgeous (love the old furniture and styling); and the location (couple of hundred metres from the Opera House) was perfect.

Character hotel. A Sydney experience. Central.

Posted Apr 4, 2015
Pros: It has character and is ideally located to facilitate CBD visits and walks in the Botanic Gardens.
Cons: Disability access.
Location: Sydney Harbour Bridge, the Opera House, Circular Quay, ferries and the Botanic Gardens are all within walking distance.
A lovely old building with helpful staff who need more training in regard to helping wheelchair- bound clients. Management and reception staff were highly responsive in dealing with any emergent problems.

Quiet, spacious and comfortable.

Posted Apr 4, 2015
Pros: Old style atmosphere in a convenient location.
Cons: Nil
Location: Taronga Zoo is just a short ferry trip across the harbour. Short walk The Rocks, Opera House and Botanic Gardens. Two minute walk to Circular Quay.
Have stayed before and will stay again. Conveniently located. Hotel is not over-sized and is serviced by helpful, friendly staff. Decor is befitting a hotel aiming to achieve a quiet, comfortable, traditional ambience. Room sizes are more generous than some other hotels we have stayed in Sydney.

very pleased

Posted Mar 14, 2015
Pros: location, decor, big room, quiet and clean
Cons: The dining room breakfast options were a bit confusing and I didn't get what I hoped for.
Location: Walk around the Opera House after dark. Eat at The Sydney Tower Buffet (revolving restaurant). Walk to The Rocks and Museum of Contemporary Art
The hotel is beautiful, like stepping into a Jane Austen novel. We stayed there fr 3 nights and have nothing but praise. Everything is perfectly clean and smells posh - a mixture of flowers and furniture polish. Our room had everything we needed. The bed was excellent. The windows and curtains did a complete job of blocking out city noise. We were on floor 7 and had a pleasing view of the quay/overseas passenger terminal with the big ocean liners coming in and out. There are free daily newspapers, ice and overnight shoe shine. The robes and slippers were terrific. The hot water is plentiful in the gorgeous marble bathroom. It's located just minutes from the trains/ferries/buses at Circular Quay though it's a steep walk uphill to the hotel. We got taxis to a couple of our meetings...average of ten dollars to cross the CBD. We used the dining room on the last day...recommend the continental breakfast as good value with an amazing variety available on the buffet but don't bother with the other option...If you have your heart set on a cooked breakfast walk down to City Extra instead, you'll get more for your money and a better view. A couple of times we enjoyed a relax on the Pool Terrace sunlounges. There is a great little gym and small pool with plenty of extra towels available. We would love to stay at the Sir Stamford again.

Great hotel close to Circular Quay

Posted Feb 23, 2015
Pros: Great facilities, friendly staff and great service. What more can you ask for!
Cons: All good!
Location: Fantastic location to go for walks and running. The proximity to Circular Quay, The Opera House, Habour Bridge and Darling Harbour is fantastic.
Efficient and friendly staff. The service was great and the pool and gym was very convenient, clean and in excellent condition. I enjoyed being so close to Circular Quay, the Opera House, Darling Harbour and many good restaurants. A great area for evening strolls and absorbing the great atmosphere

This hotel is a short walk to Circular Quay, the OperaHouse and the gardens, so is very conveniently located for a visit to Sydney. The staff are courteous and helpful and the rooms and facilities comfortable and well maintained.

Felt Like Royalty

Posted Feb 5, 2015
After two days of travel from the northeast usa we were soooo tired. We were early to arrive at this hotel and the staff was so accommodating to our needs upon arrival. We spent three relaxing nights in a comfortable spacious room. The breakfast is scrumptious. The full breakfast that I ordered the first morning is delicious but was too much food for me, so the next two days I ordered the continental which is fantastic. You must try the honycomb. Great stay and would return.
