So happy I chose Sir Stamford!!!

Six days at Sir Stamford with my 8 year old daughter and we did not want to leave!! From the service, to the room, to the location...everything was as perfect as it could be!! Five minutes by foot to the Opera House was a huge bonus given we watched the Australian ballet on Saturday night however, even without this, the beauty of the harbour is enough to satisfy any traveller. Getting up each morning and having breakfast by the harbour was a wonderful experience. Returning to the hotel each day after sightseeing or lunching, it was wonderful to enter a clean and tidy room! We happened to be in Sydney during some pretty hot days and using the hotel's pool was another positive. Even though the pool area is small, the water was extra warm and we even had the pool to ourselves at different stages of the day. It was totally relaxing and it is definitely worth packing your swimmers even on coolish days as the water is heated. Amenities in the room were adequate, towels, bathrobes & slippers were provided and there was always complimentary tea & coffee. If I had to pick at anything it would be that the armchairs in our room were a little worn. Perhaps some new covers to add a little life back to them as a suggestion...Other than that, everything else was perfect as far as cleanliness, tidiness, and space of the rooms (we stayed on Level 8 and could see the Harbour Bridge). I cannot end this review without mentioning the wonderful staff! Whilst the ladies at the front desk lacked a little lustre, Matt (the Manager) and the rest of the staff (Concierge, Housekeeping & Maintenance) were exceptional!! No request was too much trouble and the level of customer service I received was definitely first class. I would return to this hotel without any hesitation and I look forward to being spoilt by Sir Stamford staff again...and again!

Blacmore's running festival

For location this hotel can not be beaten. So close to Circular Quay and this is what we wanted. Room very spacious, clean and comfortable with a small balcony.Only down side was breakfast. For the price the choice was very limited also we had to wait to be seated as the dining room is not very big. Minor problems.

Long weekend getaway

My wife and I loved this Hotel. It usually has good reviews, and I can see why. The location is fantastic. The staff were happy and very helpful. The decor is sumptuous and in the style of an English manor house. The lobby is inviting with wood fire and beautifully furnished. The superior double room was large, clean and well appointed. The hotel is surprisingly quiet given its location next to one of Sydney's busiest transport hubs. The bathroom was great. Wall to wall marble and mirrors with separate shower,bath,double basins and toilet. Can't find anything to complain about. Will stay there again happily. Congratulations to the management and staff.

Centrally located for access to the Habour, Theatres, shops & sites of Sydney

Antique funishings were lovely. Rooms need a refurbishment. Showing wear and tear & wall paper starting to peel off the wall. Geat view over the part from our suite. Parking was expensive. Over priced for the std room rate. Good value if they have a discount offer on.

Spacious Charm and Elegance.

For those jaded of modern aluminium and glass hotels, there’s an oasis of old world spacious charm in Sydney. Sir Stamford at Circular Key, once the Carlton Ritz when I stayed there some years ago, has changed very little. The original style and decoration have been retained all to the good. A large lounge complete with a warming fire, a grand piano, and gilt framed paintings, welcome you to soft strains of Beethoven from the PA system, reflecting the halcyon days of David Jones and languid afternoon teas. My room was exceptionally large and comfortable. Included a two seater lounge and separate easy chair, writing desk, super king size bed all of relaxing decor and even a small balcony. The lavish bathroom is a miracle of marble and mirrors offering separate deep bath and shower. Culturally minded guests have the famous Opera House just down the road, Conservatory of Music and Art Gallery of New South Wales within walking distance. Meals are of quality expected in a high class establishment, with the option of numerous cafes by the water at Circular Quay for a sunny breakfast. Sir Stamford with attentive staff and period elegance makes a delight for the traveller’s rest.

Girls' weekend

Mother, daughter and granddaughter (age 10) living in Brisbane had a weekend in Sydney to see a show, Lion King, and to sample Sydney life. The Sir Stanford was the perfect location for the purpose, being close to the Opera House, and excellent restaurants, The rooms were enormous, the staff friendly and fantastic, the service excellent, room service meals could not be faulted.. The fact that the weather was perfect also helped. We'll be back next year (as long as Grandad pays the bills again!).
