Beautiful old style decor and the room/bathrooom was much larger than similar hotels we've stayed in. Simply stunning. Would definitely stay again. So conveniently located to Circular Quay and shopping. Love it.

We were in Sydney to go to the Handa opera and this hotel was in a perfect location next to the botanical gardens. Our only disappointment was not having enough time in the fabulous room. We had an early meal in The Bar and it was beautiful.

The Sir Stamford is a small, quaint, lovely hotel with spacious rooms, lounges, a restaurant and a nice staff. The bathrooms are spacious and a welcome place after a long day of touring. Breakfast was good and plentiful. I would not recommend the opera meal, however. It was too slow to allow for a leisurely walk to the opera house.

Rooms were large and well appointed and staff were very friendly. Only complaint is even after check in, you could not access car parking via the lift without using a porter. Your room key does not give you access.

This location is centrally located for everything ! Our room was ready and Clean !! The staff was on point at all times. The bar was quite romantic and wonderful staff. Hotels in Sydney are not cheap, so you should choose a clean , centrally located one. The only reason I did not give it a 5 star rating, is...

If you like hotels that have the old English manor type charm then you will enjoy this hotel. It's full of antique type furniture and huge framed paintings, as you would expect to see in a Manor House. The location is superb, almost opposite the botanical gardens and 5 mins walk to central quays and the Opera House. We stayed...

My wife and I stayed at the Sir Stamford several years ago and remembering just how conveniently close it is to the Botanic Garden, the Opera House, Circular Quay and the Central Business District we chose to return here again for a further 12 night stay in March 2017. We were not disappointed. Our spacious fifth-floor room had a small...

After a horrendous day of flight delays and cancellations, we arrived at SSCQ to find we had been upgraded to a suite and were treated like royalty. This hotel is our preferred choice when in Sydney and they never disappoint. Thank you so much for turning our trip from a possible disaster into a most enjoyable stay.

The room was unclean, the smoke detector was covered with a plastic bag and smelt of smoke. I complained twice but nothing was done and reception eventually called and suggested I remove the bag myself! The rooms are dated and cleanliness is and issue.

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.
