Stayed here for 3weeks in May '15. Good location, nice room, clean & well serviced. The manager could do with some customer service training. And the pricing felt like haggling in a market. Their website home page says that they'll beat any online price by 10% but this was very hard to get the manager to agree to. I had... More

I recently enjoyed a 4 night stay at Glenferrie Lodge and quite simply there are no superlatives that do justice to this gem set in a genteel enclave of Sydney. Self described as a 3 star yet standards overall are without a doubt higher. The grandeur of the building is imposing as you make the short walk uphill from the... More

Clean and pretty cheap; sort of out of the way relative to the city center but it's on a main ferry route for getting around town. 5-10 minute walk to the pier, 10-15 minute walk to a nearby amusement park. This was my first experience with a shared bathroom (I didn't even do that in college!); it was very clean,... More

We stayed here for 5 nights and overall were very happy with our stay. The location was the best part as you are 5 -10 min walk to the shore walk with stunning views of the Opera House and downtown skyline, 15 min walk to Milson's Point Ferry and Luna Park, 10-15 min walk to the Milson's Point Train Station,...

My husband and I stayed here last night before my SMH Half Marathon this morning. The B&B provides a comfortable, budget friendly stay with just a short walk to Milsons Point station. It has been renovated from our last stay and it's looking great. Breakfast is amazing with lots of offer and even better that it's included in the overnight... More

This accommodation is located in a lovely quiet street within Kirribilli and is a short walk to Kirribilli House, Admiralty House, Luna Park, Sydney Harbour and Sydney Harbour Bridge. The building itself is stunning and the rooms are very nice. The staff at reception were friendly and helpful. Only negative was the shared bathroom which I wasn't aware of when... More

Good value for money in what is otherwise an extremely up-market part of Sydney. You're very close to Kirribilli House and superb harbour views, and an easy walk to ferries and trains. Car parking isn't readily available and you may need to haul your gear some distance to and from the venue. The shared bathroom / shower was ok but... More

We do have heat in the rooms. the AC units are also heat pumps and work very well to ensure it's the perfect temperature.

Such a good stay for the price! Shared bathrooms worried me but I was pleasantly surprised, they're very clean and modern. Buffet breakfast was amazing and cheap. Wifi is good for being public and we had no trouble with it. Good location, too! Only problem is trying to find a park. Will definitely stay again!
