This establishment has a range of rooms for single travelers up to families. The staff were professional and the location was only about three blocks from the ferry dock (allowing stops to all points around the harbor). We had birds outside our window and a nice breeze.

This place is wonderful for location - bus and ferry stops within three to four minutes walk. Also wonderful for good breakfasts [eaten either in the large dining room or outside in the backyard garden]. Also wonderful for a B&B which has high standards of comfort, cleanliness and amenities. Nice to have free WiFi too. I really loved this place... More

Glenferrie lodge is one ferry stop from Circular Quay. They offer an excellent breakfast, free internet and you have different rooms to choose from. There are nice restaurants nearby and you can walk the harbour bridge back to the city. We stayed there 2 nights in October 2014 and enjoyed our stay.
