Second visit didn’t disappoint.”

I booked myself and some business colleagues (travelling with their toddler) into the hotel. They gave us all beautiful huge rooms. I know my colleagues were a little sceptical given the more traditional style of the hotel, but they LOVED it! The space, the service, the desire to do a great job are all very very good.

Classic room, nice package with breakfast, and just 1 min to circular quay

They let us checked out late because our booking late go thru...which is not hard for them to fix if we book thru you(agoda) instead of directly from them!!!!! I had few times experiences like this before this hotel... But other staffs at other hotel they could let me still check in by my agoda booking voucher!!! So for the 5 star hotel to happen this which is not very good experience....

Quaint olde worlde charm, close to Circular Quay/Opera House

We stayed for an anniversary and thoroughly loved the hotel. It's definitely not for those seeking ultra modern but the rooms are of a good size and the service is excellent. No view from our window but the Quay is a short stroll away. We had dinner at the restaurant and although the food was ok it wasn't really worth the price paid. There are a lot of restaurants in the area to try.

Fantastic location, nice bar, good food, huge and practical bathroom and huge room

i was impressed by the massive classical art collection once you walk into the sir stamford circular quay. the reading lounge was really nice and comfortable, the dining room was pretty and the bar was wonderful (albeit expensive!). loved that there were jazz performances on the days we were there. the location is second to none. right opposite the botanical gardens and literally steps away from circular quay - we walked all over everywhere as it was just so convenient, yet so quiet. i must say however the swimming pool couldn't get any smaller! its so tiny! but thats not too bad since its heated and i was really looking for more of a dip in the water than a swim. the rooms - fantastic. spacious and comfortable. there were three of us staying and it was still very comfy. the bathrooms were a good design too. humungous! and very practical - two sinks, separate toilet and shower area. service was very good. no issues at all with concierge, reception, room service, and when the plug point blew, the engineer came to help out in seconds. i would definitely return again to stay at this hotel!

We stayed at the Sir Stamford twice....when we arrived and then at the end of our trip. We had 2 terrific stays. Rooms. very nice...location great.....and staff really understand what customer service is all about. Everyone was terrific...particularly the head concierge David Reynolds. He was just amazing....knows the City like a pro....but he went so way beyond the call of duty that it was mind-blowing. Kudos. In addition when we returned we had a junior suite which was bigger than some people's apartments...Just great. Thank you David and the Sir Stamford staff.
