Old world charm

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on January 20, 2015

My husband and i stayed here mid week and had the celebration package which included high tea, bath robes and slippers that you can keep and buffet breakfast. We had a fantastic room with a view of the harbour bridge. We also took out 1yo daughter. A cot was supplied on request and service was brilliant. The only complaint was that the credit card payment was taken out twice and took several days to be repayed.

Unique Quality: Old world charm, perfect location at circular quay and fabulous views

Well, it is a 5 star hotel but they're a little on amenities. they will certainly try to bleed you dry. the rooms are nice, big and have a pretty good view, if your staying on the east side.

if you book 60 days in advanced you can get a huge discount. at the discounted price, its worth it, but otherwise I think you could do better.

A Romantic Hotel in Sydney.

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)

This hotel is situated in a prime position just minutes from the Opera House, Circular Quay and The Rocks area. It is housed in a beautiful National Trust Heritage building with nine or ten floors. The foyer and lobby area are gorgeous with lovely 18th century Georgian antique furniture. The hotel has a distinctive ambience and oozes with charm and character. The art work within the hotel is also very impressive.

Our room 905 was absolutely wonderful. It was very spacious with a king size bed, small table and chairs, lamps, mini bar, coffee and tea facilities, trouser press, with a comfortable lounge chair and ottoman.

The best thing was our huge balcony which had stunning views of the Harbour Bridge, Sydney Harbour and the Botanical Gardens. I was very ecstatic, as I had booked this hotel for a surprise for my husband’s birthday. Most of our time except for dinner was spent just sitting on the outdoor table and chairs taking in the spectacular view, and at night it truly was magical. We noticed the room next door to ours (911) had a bigger balcony and they would actually get the same view but with the Opera House added in as a bonus. (Fabulous room for New Years Eve.)

The bathroom was marble and had two separate vanity units and excellent makeup mirror. Fluffy white bathrobes and slippers were also supplied. The hotel has an outdoor swimming pool and a good size deck area with sauna and gym supplied.

We had dinner in the restaurant which had a lovely atmosphere.

Overall, apart for the misfortune of our dinner fiasco, I thought this hotel to be wonderful. If I was visiting Sydney, this hotel would suit me perfectly.

I have given this hotel a 5 star rating for its position, ambience, atmosphere and our fantastic spacious balcony with stunning views. Oops, I almost forgot to mention the lovely touch of “romance and seduction” CD playing when you opened your door.

Unique Quality: Fabulous views and room.

Directions: A five minute walk to the Opera House with the Botancial Gardens across the road.

Swish at Circular Quays

This is a hotel most definately aimed at the discerning traveller at the top end of the market. Its so traditionally (stereotypically) 'English' it defies belief with completely old-fashioned values that appeal to some, whilst alienates others.

You certainly can't fault the hotel - it has everyhting you need in a five star hotel and more. This one is more about how comfortable you feel in a slightly fawning, 'service is everything' type of place where you will never be anonymous. Drop soemthing on the floor and miraculously someone appears to pick it up for you (OK - poetic license but it gives you the idea).

Unique Quality: From the tiny, discrete reception through to the grand sweeping rooms (most with small, ornate balconies which at least provide outside access), the Sir Stamford is about class, albeit slightly old-fashioned. Its not about clean straight lines and minimalist decor here - this is about comfort and over-stuffed wing-back chairs, floral motifs, brass fittings and super-efficient service.

Its difficult to fault, but ultimately I felt too claustrophobic - I prefer a slightly more anonymous, contemporary place. But it certainly has a great location!

FABULOUS BUT JUST NOT NOT MY STYLE AT ALL.
