We recently stayed at the Sir Stamford for four nights following a cruise from New Zealand to Australia. This hotel certainly lived up to all the good reviews we had read before booking. It is in a very central location and if we had travelled lighter and were younger we probably could have walked from the cruise terminal as it was pretty close. We loved being near the Wharf and enjoyed an excellent fish supper one night sitting outside of one of the many restaurants. We also walked to the Opera House and took a tour which was excellent. Our room was a de luxe one bedroom which was lovely very roomy with a huge bathroom in marble. The heated pool although small was lovely to relax at the end of sightseeing. It was in a very nice terrace with comfortable sun beds and there were always plenty of towels in the gym. We didn't use the gym but it seemed very well equipped. The reception staff I dealt with Danielle and Elaine were very pleasant and helpful and the concierge a young French guy I'm afraid I didn't get his name was especially helpful in trying to book a meal for us in the revolving restaurant of the Tower. We didn't have breakfast in the hotel for us it seemed a little pricey especially as we don't eat much at that time but we did find a cafe just down the road to the right which was excellent and very reasonable. We did have the evening meal in the hotel restaurant on our last night and it was exceptionally good the food was superb and the waitresses lovely, efficient and very friendly. In the reception area wi if was free for half a hour a day but you could also use the business centre which had two computers free of charge. This hotel was an excellent place for us to stay on our first visit to Sydney as it wasn't too far from the places of interests. We really enjoyed the meal at the top of the Tower. The Sea Life centre was great and the trip back to the Wharf on the Ferry was lovely under the Sydney Harbour Bridge and passed the amazing Opera House. We had a lovely day at Manley which is definitely worth a trip on the ferry if you have the time.
