We had a wonderful stay at the Sir Stamford on Circular Quay! If we were ever to go to Sydney again, we would always stay there. The staff were friendly and helpful. We enjoyed the comfortable downstairs portions, particularly the sitting area with its inviting fireplace. It was convenient to the things we wanted to do - see the opera house and tour the Royal Botanical Gardens. Also many restaurants were within easy walking distance. This hotel has old world charm with all the modern amenities!

What a great place to spend some time. The room was perfect. Lovely big area and such comfortable sitting area to relax. The bathroom was a great space. So luxurious and well appointed. The log fire glowing in the entrance was so lovely. The smell of the burning logs brought back memories of country towns. The bar was fantastic. A lovely section of entertainment as we sat and relaxed. Next visit we will certainly try the restaurant it looked fantastic. Could not fault the Hotel at all.

We had a group of 16 family and friends stay at The Sir Stamford for our daughters wedding in May 2018 including the Bride and Groom.
We cannot thank them enough for the wonderful service, excellent rooms and the treatment we all received during our 3 day stay. Nothing was to much trouble from storing the wedding flowers to last minute stayers after the wedding, the staff went out of their way to make sure we had everything we needed.
On the wedding day we were all running around the hotel like mad people and this was made easier by most of us being placed on the same floor, we pretty much took over Level 7.
I cannot wait to go back and spend a romantic weekend with mu hubby exploring my hometown, I have stayed in many hotels in Sydney and The Sir Stamford is by far the best.
If you are staying in Sydney for a couple of days definately stay here.

Room Tip: West North and East rooms have the best view

Another great Sydney Hotel among plenty with the added bonus of genuine charm to go with the location. Perfectly positioned at Circular Quay with easy access no matter which mode of transport you arrive by or use to get around the city. Rail Station, ferries and buses are only 3 - 4 minutes walk away

This hotel has a rather interesting history as an aside (read the room folder to see what I mean) and is now pretty hard to fault in it's current guise as accommodation. It's been a hotel now for a fair while and has got everything pretty much right from the old world charm of the public areas and rooms down to the friendliness of the staff. In fact some of the friendliest and most helpful we've encountered anywhere.

The bar has a fantastic ambiance for an evening drink after a hard day visiting the sights. The rooms are spacious, even by Sydney standards where rooms are larger than those encountered in many other cities, with comfortable beds, well controlled air conditioning and classy bathroom decor and accompaniments.
Some may find the lighting in the room a little subdued for their liking with just 2 bedside standard lamps to illuminate the main section of the rooms but all to a purpose in adding to the charm. Ample hanging space is provided with a simple but adequate minibar on hand. At time of stay this hotel was available at a sensational price considering the quality of the hotel and it's prime location. Fantastic value really.

Parking is available just around the corner and can be either self park or valet at comparable Sydney hotel rates. We went for a sticky-beak as you do, and saw an adequate gym and an outdoor patio area that looked fine for a morning coffee.The Sir Stamford is easy to locate and simple to arrive at or depart from as this end of Macquarie Street is fairly quiet at most times of day. We can't comment on the restaurant here as we ate out for each meal to which there are a plethora of options within reasonable walking distance should you chose.. Overall a very comfortable and enjoyable stay in a great location with fantastic staff. Not much more you could ask for and we'll certainly be back.

Room Tip: Higher floors may give a better view. City and Bridge view available on the western side

Ask for room /floor confirmation in writing so as not to be disappointed when arriving.Juliet balcony was a treat as we sat with door open, glass of wine, enjoying the sunset. The Lounge with fireplace was very welcome after the freezing weather outside, and tea/coffee station was welcome. All staff are pleasant and seem to enjoy their roles. We were pleased that a young music student was doing his practice on the grand piano in the Lounge on sunday afternoon.
