Close to the Sydney Opera.

Comfortable stay, good service. The taps in the bathroom were leaking. This heritage building needs some renovation. There was a strong smell of old not in a good way. Location is the main reason for choosing this hotel.

Very close 2 other places of interest

Posted Jul 18, 2016
Very close 2 the circular quay wharf, so can get around with ferry. Only negative is no free wifi & package without breakfast. Staff were excellent. I would say its not 5 star but more to 4 star. Overall enjoyed my stay.

Spacious room, very clean. Lovely staff.

Posted Jul 17, 2016
Pros: Large spacious rooms. Great breakfast and bar food excellent. Staff very helpful.
Cons: Lighting in rooms
Location: Right beside circular quay
We were going to the Lyric theatre to watch "Singing in the Rain" and it was just a short taxi ride away costing approx $17. We stayed at the hotel and had pre theatre bar food which was lovely and relaxing. The rooms are extremely spacious and the whole hotel experience very relaxing. Would definitely stay here again.

Enjoyed my stay here

Posted Jul 12, 2016
I chose this hotel because I love the elegance and homeliness of the Stamford Hotels. The staff were excellent; I could not fault the service they provided. I received a complimentary bottle of champagne delivered to my room on the first night as I was celebrating my birthday during my stay. I loved the fire in the downstairs lobby - very relaxing to sit there on a cold winter's night. Not knowing Sydney very well, I found it easy to make my way to Sir Stamford from the airport - Airport Train to Circular Quay then a short 5 minute walk to the hotel. It was convenient to arrange sightseeing trips from Circular Quay or to travel the city by train or ferry. Am already planning my next trip to Sydney and will definitely stay here again.

Close to transport and Sydney Opera House.

Posted Jun 23, 2016
Pros: Reception, courtesy of staff, advising us when other member of family booked in. View from our window
Cons: As house guests Unable to get a seat when we returned after visiting opera house at about 8 p.m.
Location: Within an easy 10 minutes walk to Opera House, Same time to train station, and equal time to various ferry wharves. Plenty of out places to eat.
We choose this as our place of residence in Sydney as It is close to Opera House and circular quay for transport, Bus, Rail, Ferries and pleasant safe walking. Also close to Botanical Gardens. Don't forget the open fire.
