Spent my Easter at Glenferrie Lodge and loved every minute of it. Such a home away from home, quaint rooms, great buffet breakfast, close proximity to ferry and Circular Quay. Take a walk and enjoy the iconic sights of Sydney located at Kirribilli. No problem with shared bathrooms - thanks to all staff for hospitality - look forward to my... More

I knew how long I was going to be in Sydney for but trying to find accommodation was overwhelming. Something drew me to Kirribilli then Glenferrie, reading the Trip advisor past reviews was the clincher. For the location and the free breakfast you can't beat the price worth every Aussie cent I had a single room with a shared bathroom... More

Had stayed at glenferrie recently. The location is in north Sydney across the harbor. But the city is easily accessible by ferry or train. Rooms are simple and comfortable. The shared bathrooms can be inconvenient but it's not a major drawback. The breakfast buffet is a wide spread and very good. Recommended for the tourist who wants to stay in... More

This hotel was clean and the staff were incredible - nothing was too much trouble. Located just 2 minutes walk to the regular ferry to the city central pier (6 mins). The buffet breakfast was the best we experienced and the lack of en suite bathrooms proved to be no problem,

Having booked through Agoda into Cremorne Point Manor about 3 weeks before my arrival in Sydney, I was VERY upset to receive an email from Agoda, less than 24 hr before my arrival in Australia to say that the hotel was full and that I had been transferred to Glenferrie Lodge in Kirribilli.

Dear Scottybnz, Thank you for writing a detailed review of Glenferrie Lodge. I would firstly like to apologise on behalf of Agoda. As you may be aware they are a 3rd party booking website and often they change things for both the guest and the hotel. We have no control over their actions. However I am glad that we were... More

Absolutely pleasantly surprised! I was born and raised in Sydney, but now living interstate, hence I'm familiar with accommodation tariffs in the harbour area. I had to attend a weekend course in Milson's Point and was not prepared to pay the ridiculous tariffs in nearby hotels so decided to give Glenferrie Lodge a try, even though I was reluctant to...

We stayed at Glenferrie in Dec 2014 with our cocker spaniel. Perfectly located - 5 mins walk from the wharf and 10 mins from Kirribilli itself. The rooms were pleasant and I was so impressed we were allowed to have our dog with us! Great service and the shared bathrooms were pristine at all times.

Stayed here for five nights with two small children (3 and 5). We had interconnecting rooms and a balcony which was bliss. The rooms themselves were small so we really welcomed that extra little bit of space.
