Just had a great weekend in the Interconnecting room, with ensuite. The breakfast was just awesome! The prices for the rooms are great. Staff were friendly and helpful. Just ten minutes stroll to Luna Park. Other attractions are close, using Ferries. Next time will book a different room (the stairs killed my legs lol) but that's the room I booked... More

Rooms are clean. Beds are comfortable. Shared bathrooms which at times can be messy but this is due to untidy and lazy guests. Can be noisy at times - inconsiderate guests being loud late at night. Good breakfast.

I have stayed at Glenferrie Lodge several times and been in a different room each time. This time I was in Room 23 (if I remember rightly) I was delighted to see a decent sized and shapely mirror. (The previous room had none.) I was also pleasantly surprised by two beautiful, well shot photos of Sydney as giant wall mounts.... More

Loved our huge family room with the outdoor seating area off our room. So much room for the five of us. The staff are so friendly. My three children loved the play area. So close to public transport & free parking. Would never try to stay in the CBD again.

The breakfast was the best thing. We had a triple room which was quite small and very basic. The shared bathrooms didn't have any available dry floor space. No lifts so I had to get help getting my 22kg bag up 2 flights of stairs.
