The room was very basic, but the staff were very friendly and helpful. It is situated in the middle of a quiet, tree lined street within walking distance of restaurants and bars. Walking around was a pleasant experience as the roads were nice and quiet. Will be booking a room there for when I return. If you just want a... More

Just one ferry stop from the Quay at Kirribilli, a short 10 minute walk to the Kirribilli shopping centre and a further 10 minutes to Milson's Point. My friends and I found this well appointed home away from home to be great value for money. We had single or twin rooms and shared the unisex bathroom at the end of... More

Lovely stay in a budget room. Bathrooms were plentiful and clean but a tad cramped in some of them. The room was cozy. Breakfast was delicuous- both hot and cold options. Eggs, cereal, toast, fruit, sausages... to name a few things. Kiribilli is a 25 minute walk over the Harbour Bridge from the central business district. The train station, Milsons... More

Dear Brenda, A sincere thank you for your lovely review. It's nice to know you enjoyed your time at Glenferrie and did the lovely walk across the bridge.

Glenferrie Lodge is as advertised - three Stars. However without question full of charm and character!! The floors all squeak under foot and there are plenty of scuff marks and signs of the age (or more kindly the heritage) of this large but cosy lodge. My room was comfortable if not a tad 'compact' but possessed all I needed and... More

Dear DandAMcMahon, Thank you sincerely for your great review. Yes The PM does live just down the road. as well as the Governor General. So Glenferrie is in quite the company. I'm glad the shared bathrooms were not too strange for you. We do have Ensuite's as well however most of our rooms are shared facilities. I also wanted to... More

I Cannock better that subscribe to all the positive comments about the Glenferrie Lodge. Yer, it IS great, an excellent value for money, fantastically located etc... I especially liked the accessibility by the ferry just from the Opera Hause (Circular Quai), it takes less than 5 minutes. You wish it were longer! The staff is so welcoming and helpful. The...

Shared bathroom facilities, comprehensive buffet breakfast, clean, tidy, helpful staff, exactly what I wanted and needed, terrific location. I had a single room which was big enough, with a chair and desk, as well as tea and coffee making facilities and a bar fridge. The wardrobe hanging space actually had coat hangers. I would suggest bringing thongs/ flip flops for... More

We stayed in the "garden room" at Glenferrie Lodge last Tuesday night and found that the ambience was extremely peaceful. The staff were very friendly and the breakfast had a huge selection to choose from. The close proximity to Sydney CBD and the pricing is very reasonable considering that you are so close to everything. We will definitely be staying... More

This beautiful place was recommended to me by a friend that stays regularly, so i booked on her advice. We are both business owners, so we get to see a lot of different places. Glenferrie is lovely. Well appointed rooms. Share bathroom which in all honesty wouldn't be my pick, but to my surprise were great. M&F toilets and shower... More

This is the second time we've stayed at Glenferrie Lodge - and once again we were not disappointed. From the friendly welcome by staff members, the all-important access to Sydney CBD at the time of the "Vivid" festival, to the wonderful breakfast enjoyed by my wife & myself. Only a 2 night stay this time, but the room was clean... More
