“anniversary date”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 June 2014

Meters from the entry I was impressed with the canopy. Photo time. Self opening doors and the first vision of the smiling concierge, more than happy to help. At check in the staff member was very courteous and friendly. Service was quick. As we were there celebrating our 15th wedding anniversary we were taken care of with a lovely surprise of sparkling. Our room was magnificent, I was so impressed I took photos. Bed was comfortable. The open fire places are so beautiful. When in this hotel you almost feel as if you're not in the hustle & bustle of the city. So tranquil, warm and peaceful with the surroundings. Had a coffee & a few drinks at the bar. Top service. I cannot fault anything with this hotel. Even check out was a breeze. Would stay again. Loved it :)

I have stayed here on a few occasions and wouldn't hesitate in recommending it.
It's very conveniently located close to Circular Quay, city shopping, parks, restaurants and the Opera house.
The staff are friendly, helpful and discreet. The in room dining menu is diverse and delicious.
If there was one thing I would like improved it would be the TV reception.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view.

Stayed to meet our son for his B'day. Lovely rooms(old world) and at a reasonable price. Good location. Near the Intercontinental hotel and right at Circular Quay. Easy to get to as don't have to go through Sydney centre and can exit the motorway nearby.

Room Tip: We had two rooms one with slightly better view but if you want a view stay at the Intercontinental...

My husband and I stayed on the June long weekend and had a beautiful time. The Hotel is very stylish and conveniently located to Circular Quay.

We lashed out and had the Seduction package and it was fantastic, much better than I thought.

Would highly recommend staying at this hotel, the rooms are lovely, the breakfast was very good.

Room Tip: Get a room as high as possible. Will get views of Circular Quay.

First time stay. Excellent location - very near to Sydney Harbour and Opera House and also to the Customs House.There is a Sydney Explorer bus stop just opposite the hotel hence making it very convenient to travel around the city by the hop on hop off bus.
Room is very spacious with a balcony attached. Our room was located on the 5th floor just next to the gym and swimming pool. It was indeed a lovely experience sitting at the balcony while having dinner and watching colourful lights on nearby buildings.It was Vivid Sydney when we were here.

However as young parents with a 4 year old tagging along, we find this place not very suitable to our lifestyle. It was all posh and elegant here while we wanted to have something more laid back and relaxed. Still a good hotel though, but probably not for us.

Thank you anyway for the kind hospitality. We will visit again some other time.

We decided to stay at the Sir Stamford for our third visit to Sydney having stayed at newer hotels previously. What a delight!

The atmosphere is of an English Country Hotel in as much as every where you went there were display cabinets with fine china, 'old master' type paintings and even a log fire in the lobby where the sofas were as comfortable as any I have come across.

Our room was a very good size and the marble bathroom luxurious. It was a special Anniversary and the Hotel had gone that extra mile to make it special-thank you. We had a Juliet balcony overlooking the Botanical Gardens and were just able to see the Opera House to our left.

Wifi is free in the lobby, no hardship as the area is so welcoming. We had a drink in the Bar area and noticed that it was a popular choice for families to eat being casual and reasonably priced.

The location is perfect being just a few minutes walk from Circular Quay. The Police Museum around the corner was well worth a visit which we might have missed had we not walked past it everyday.

For something that is very different from anything else we have come across in Australia I definitely recommend the Sir Stamford. You won't be disappointed.

Room Tip: Pay slightly extra for a room with a Juliet balcony.

Visited with my wife for two nights, and was an excellent experience, despite having a rough start. At first we were pretty much ignored on arrival but had not other problems checking in.
Great venue, close to Circular Quay.
We had to order a late night room service, due to a private event not working out, and were pleasantly surprised to find the butter chicken good value for money, especially when served near mid-night.
Great Lounge, with a warming fire, luxury décor in the restaurant.

Room Tip: If you Self park, ask about getting access to the car park from the lift.
