Pros: The restaurant food was actually pretty good.Cons: I know it's a USA type of complaint but there was no ice and my room service request for it didn't arrive for more than an hour until I then called back and bought a can of soda pop, which arrived thirty minutes later.
convenient locationPros: close to the airport. rooms were clean and comfortableCons: the temperature controls did not seem to work in the room. the restaurant staff were difficult to communicate with in English. food was ok but not great - overpriced for the quality
Pros: Great staff. Clean well appointed room. Swimming pool andfitness room a bonus. Airport shuttle good. Cons: Restaurant food so so and over priced. Not many other food options.
Pros: Comfortable Room, Friendly Concierge/Front Desk StaffCons: Fish n Chip prices too steep....$26.00 for two bits of fish and semi warm chips!
Good Airport Location, dated interior roomsPros: The location to Sydney Kingsford-Smith airport was very good. The lobby was well kept up and the bell service was quick to unload our bags and bring them to our room.
The bathroom in our standard room was well designed, including stone/granite counter tops and new(er) showers and toilets.
Room includes a mini-bar.Cons: The room was a bit dated (e.g. the lights and fixtures) and the carpet was a bit worn. The mini-bar is a bit expensive, but that's my own fault for using it!
The only remaining gripe is that the airport shuttle is not free, it was $6 per person. Also the shuttle stops off at the domestic terminal first, before going to the international terminal, so factor that in when planning your arrival time to the airport.
Pros: the hotel was great. No problems at all.Cons: the only issue is that the rooms were fairly small, but the hotel is in a big city, very close to the airport.
Pros: Close to the airport
Exercise roomCons: No restaurants near by other than the two owned by the hotel.
Convenient for Early Morning FlightsPros: Everything was clean and well kept.Cons: I didn't like that there was no complimentary wifi. I can understanding having caps to minimize streaming but it would be nice to have some basic browsing ability.
Cons: Room was clean but décor very dated and not upper market as you would expect for the amount of money paid ($370 for the night) and the Stamford name. The 3 nights prior to my stay at the Stamford I had stayed at the International Hotel in Wagga and it was more modern and elegant than the Stamford and was about 1/3 of the price. I know Wagga is out in the country, but still, the value for money for the room at the Stamford was just very poor. Hi-Speed WiFi should be free as part of the room cost and there should be more charging points for devices and more power points. Larger LED screen on the wall. Remove the cupboards that house the TVs as they are a waste of space.
