I have stayed at this hotel for 6 years regularly for mainly business but also for nights out, I always recommend this place for my friends and many have stayed. It is clean with friendly staff and a great buffet breakfast included , great for exploring Sydney with good restaurants and close to all transport , highly recommend.

I ended up here trying to find something when Sydney was full and just got the last room. Yes the bathroom was shared. But it was very clean. The whole place has been renovated. The room is small, but not an issue. It looks lovely. I was quite surprised. I thoroughly enjoyed a walk to Kirribilli for dinner and the... More

I found this place by accident. It may not be the most flash place, but you are 5 mins walk from kirribilli house admiralty house, along with the Sydney Harbour Bridge. This comes in hang if you are invited to dinner by anyone special in the area. Very affordable, included breakfast. The only fault is the shared bathrooms. Very old... More

A good value for money place to stay in a fantastic location. The rooms are basic but clean and comfortable. The bathrooms are shared but plenty of them and they are clean. The buffet breakfast is very good. It has a lovely garden and also has a guest laundry. It's just a short and lovely ferry ride from circular quay... More

This is the fourth time we have stayed at Glenferrie. In terms of location and cost I’m not sure you can do better within four or 5 miles of Sydney city Centre. The rooms are definitely small and cramped and most do not have their own en suite. However there seems to be a lot of renovation happening. The plentiful... More

So thrilled to have "discovered" Glenferrie Lodge after we needed accommodation for a wedding at Aqua Dining. The service was excellent and friendly. Room spotless and modern. Shared bathrooms couldn't be faulted and no inconvenience at all as located just at the end of the hall. Breakfast was amazing! Pancakes with maple syrup; lovely hot selection; juices; pastries; and more... More

The Lodge here seems to be even better than the last times we were there.. Just so spotlessly clean and lovely views of the Harbour on the walk to the station. The attention by staff was first class and having shuttle bus arranged to the airport was a plus, saving transfers. Cooked breakfast eaten in the garden was a great... More

just a stones throw from Kirribilli Wharf for easy access to the cbd you can't get better value that this place. Nice and simple decor, shared bathrooms only distraction but for the price, a quiet location and throw in a buffet breakfast you'd be crazy not to consider this place!
