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. I dont know if this was Cremorne... More

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...

Dear OzzDoc, Sincerely thank you for your review of Glenferrie. I am very pleased that you were surprised about how nice Glenferrie is. Yes it's shared bathrooms and budget but it doesn't mean it's not a nice place to stay as you've found out. I have shown your comments to all the front office staff and I'm trying to determine...

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 for three nights in December 2014, found it to be a lovely place a short stroll away from Sydney Harbour Bridge, with a fantastic view over Sydney Harbour - including a certain Opera House - from only around the next corner. Kirribilli is a very nice area with several good restaurants; I especially recommend Street Market (Asian Tapas bar... More

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. Without mentioning any of this the gentleman at the Front desk working on Saturday 31/01 at... More

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.
