My husband and I, plus my son, his wife and their 3 children stayed at this hotel. My son's family had the one and only family room and my husband and I had a standard room. We found the hotel to be excellent and good value. It has been delightfully redecorated in the period style of years gone by. There... More

The rooms are reasonable. The real issue is over the period of two different stays. On each occasion noise, from music playing was so loud I couldn't get any rest. Yes the music continued in each case until after midnight. Then plenty of loud banging into the morning. where you can get some sleep

I stayed in a very nice room, although the noise from the bar downstairs was loud, long into the night. What disappointed me the most was the wifi coverage (or lack thereof). The hotel description stated that free wifi was offered to guests. What they failed to point out was that the coverage didn't extend to guest rooms, and was... More

Went for lunch today, 5th April 2014 very disappointed, staff were good but the food was second rate. Had Veal schnitzel tasted like leather no bigger than the palm of my hand with burnt crust, poorly presented, the other 3 meals were all bad, NEED A NEW COOK or maybe a Chef. Want be going back and will not recommend.

I actually wish I could attach a video to show just how loud the music was in room 5. I filmed using my iPhone and it is very clearly heard. I cannot speak for the other rooms but this was horrendous. We are staying here the night before a fundraising 60km walk for cancer and we even told the man... More

My wife and I first met at the Glenferrie in 2005 and we held her 30th there this year. The guests and I could not get over the level of attention to detail and traditional "old modern" look that is the new, revitalised Glenferrie. Gone are the days of cheap Uni drinks on a thursday and the whole crew are... More

The bathroom was also very spacious, clean and also had a Spa bath.The reception was very helpful with tourism assistance. The hotel has free parking at the... More

It was with some trepidation that I booked here as some of the reviews were less than glowing, however I had a very positive experience. The receptionist was perfunctory and polite, but answered all my questions, and directed me to my room. The room was spotless, very well appointed, and the bathroom was really lovely. The tiling and fittings made... More

A lot of character and great food and friendly and helpful staff, room can be a little noisy until bar quietens down. Convenient access to CBD via nearby rail station and to Swinburne University. Close to a variety of cafe's and bars and local shops.
