We were upgraded to a Harbour View room to celebrate our 10 year wedding anniversary and the room was lovely and the view amazing!
The bed was really comfortable, the bathroom spacious and bright and overall the hotel room was lovely.
The food at breakfast was lovely however the service and waiting to be seated etc was very disorganised. It was very busy but the system for seating people needs to be improved, having to queue for a considerable period of time is not common in a hotel of this quality.
Otherwise, we loved our stay:-)
"Fabulous place to stay close to the great sights "
We simply loved the ambiance of this stylish, elegant hotel. There is nothing we could fault, from the very large room and cleanliness to the professionalism of the lovely staff, everything was just perfect. We would definitely love to stay there again.

Voted Best Hotel in Sydney and Best in Australia, Sir Stamford at Circular Quay offers unparalleled classical elegance and …More
My family had a wonderful first time visit in Sydney. Hotel helped us arrange transport from the airport. Concierge was very helpful, especially David. Breakfast was excellent. Room was very spacious and accommodated my 2 little girls well. It also has a veranda with a nice view of the harbor bridge. Over all, our experience was really superb! Would love to come back and would definitely recommend to anyone.
We have stayed at the Russel hotel several times over many years and this little gem still remains our pick whenever we stay in Sydney. The hotel is located on George street right opposite circular quay in a brilliant location that gives you access to the Rocks area, the city, the bridge, opera house, botanical gardens, circular quay, trains, ferry and buses - you really are in the heart of Sydney. The Russell is a charming little hotel with a heritage feel in historic old buildings. Rooms are furnished with antiques and heritage prints and soft furnishings which gives a lovely country guest house feel - very warm and welcoming. Ensuite bathrooms are compact but work well and there is plenty of hot water with good pressure. A simple but very adequate breakfast is served in the bar underneath the hotel, with the bar being as added bonus for evening drinks without the rooms being affected by the noise. We had a first level front room on this visit and it was very quiet (apart from a few creaking floorboards) even though it was right on George St with trains passing nearby.
