We are repeat visitors to the Sir Stamford. It is in an excellent location, close to The Rocks, Gardens, Art Gallery and shopping. The staff are professional, and the rooms are spacious and clean. In the winter the open fires are a real bonus and add a lovely atmosphere.

Really enjoyed our second stay at Sir Stamford. Great location with excellent staff, service, dining, bar and very comfortable rooms. And the Wi-Fi works a treat! I am quite keen to return for another stay some time soon.

Great location, service, facilities, room and price. Had a room overlooking the park, with a balcony and great views. Very quiet. Had trouble trying to get a TV channel at one time and rang guest services. Concierge was at room within 60 seconds and resolved matter immediately to total satisfaction.

Don't waste your money on this one - the place is not maintained, the staff are not up to 5 star they are about a 1-2 star and if you want a tastless, soggy breakfast that will set you back $30+ then this is it! Oh yeah and the bed is one of the worst I have every slept in

All very good apart from the party in the adjoining room which I contacted the concierge about at 2am but which carried on until 5am. Not a very good apology from reception on checkout . Rooms are too dark - the lighting needs an update

Camden, Australia
Reviewed 30 July 2016

This beautiful hotel offers great rooms of good size with old world charm. The attentive staff always ready to help. Perfectly located for opera house and circular quay. Thought the 2% surcharge on credit card was slightly over the top. However I would highly recommend this hotel and would love to visit again.

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.
