Loved it!

Excellent location - Huge room - Reasonably priced. Did not like the fact of a $25 per day charge for internet. Seems customary in AU. Eat at the bar: good prices and great atmosphere.

Highly recommended+ excellent location

Charming traditional hotel in Sydney's most convenient location, 50 yards up the street from Circular Quay -- we could see the ferries and trains from the bedroom window, and the harbour bridge from the lounge window. We booked an "executive suite" which was a clean bright spacious corner suite. The hotel decor is traditional English right down to the fire crackling in the wood-panelled lobby lounge. The staff were consistently friendly, helpful and efficient --[...] deserve special thanks for extra help with our luggage. If only the wifi were free, this would be a homerun...

Great location

Hotel was clean, friendly staff, and ideally located about two blocks from Circular Quay. We walked down to the Quay every day - you could catch a bus, take a ferry ride, take a cruise, dine, and walk to the Opera House and, of course, see Sydney Harbour Bridge.

Just walk down to Circular Quay - you'll find all kinds of recreational activities. Cruising, ferry out to Watsons Bay, Darling Harbour, and many more. Walk to the Rocks area and go to the Discovery Museum to find out informative information on the history of the Rocks area.

Bonzer Booking!

From the minute that we walked in it was clear that we had lucked into what might be the best place to stay in all of Sydney. After 30 hours of travel, and arriving many hours before our room could have been expected to be ready, the bellboy brought us up to the pool/sauna/exercise center, and, after we showered and changed, brought us complimentary drinks to welcome us to Australia and the Sir Stamford. The service continued to be equally outstanding for the remainder of our stay! The room was very nicely appointed, breakfasts in the dining room were a great start to each day, and the bar/lounge was a very comfortable place to unwind after time spent exploring Sydney. And then there's the location -- equally outstanding. Right across from the Royal Botanical Gardens, a hop, skip, and a jump from the Opera House, and a few minutes from all the connections you might want to make by ferry, tram, or bus to anything you could want to see or do. We could not have done any better than this!

Check out the Sydney Cafe on the top floor of the Customs House. The food is divine, the view can't be topped, and, if you are lucky enough to make reservations on a day when there is live jazz, the overall experience is truly memorable.
