Excellent stay as ever, with the exception of a non functioning air conditioner. Could not lower the room temperature to an acceptable level. Possibly need to look at staffing levels in the dining room at breakfast. Plates were left on tables.

Great hotel with excellent staff. Closely located to all of Sydney's attractions like the Opera House, Circular Quay and Botanic Gardens. The hotel not only offers accommodation but also function rooms and the bar area also hosts High Tea and a higlight is Angie on the piano on Friday nights. Great place for any occasion!

Sir Stamford is a hotel filled with old world charm. I would return every weekend if possible. The service provided was exceptional. The warmth of the Hotel was spot on and cosy. Convenience to Circular Quay was a great incentive and easy access.

The staff were so attentive and helpful. Makes the stay even better. The room was clean and spacious. The deck pool was fun late at night. The open fire in the foyer was a great touch. Buffet breakfast was all you would expect.

I stayed at the Sir Stamford for one night but I wish it was more. Centralised location made it easy for Circular Quay and the main Sydney shopping district. The room was great - clean and modern.

Staying in Central Business District

Neighbourhood Profile
Central Business District
The Sydney Central Business District is abuzz with energy. Power brokers run to and from high rise buildings and after-work drink places, high-end shoppers tour venues like the QVB, and fine diners frequent the many celebrity chef restaurants. For a dose of culture, walk to the NSW Art Gallery, or visit the Sydney Museum. To escape the hustle and bustle, reconnect with nature at the Sydney Botanical Gardens or picnic lunch at High Park. No matter your interest, be sure to check the full calendar of events hosted by the city, from the Sydney Festival in January to October’s Good Food Month at Hyde Park.
