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. The bathrooms were ok - I didn't like the fact that male and female are all mixed in together and the toilets and... More

We were looking for some last minute accommodation in Sydney for the Asian Cup final so decided to book one night after stumbling across the very reasonably priced Glenferrie Lodge online.  We had driven up from Melbourne overnight and arrived very early and tired.

I stayed in a double room by myself and it was very spacious, new TV, clean coffee making facilities. The bathroom, which is located at one end of the hallway was very clean, with nice smelling free shower gel. The breakfast offered a wide range of nice things, e.g. pancakes, baked herb tomatoes and fresh juices. Yummi! You can't get... More

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.
