We arrived around midday but checkin wasn't until 3pm so we stopped for lunch and then headed for the Jenolan Caves. When I arrived back later with my wife and 2 exhausted children (2 & 5) after a big day and a lot of driving, our booking had been lost. The booking was made directly on their website, all credit...

The rooms are very small with no where to sit other than on the bed (we had the "standard" - least expensive room) with air-conditioning , we found it clean and comfortable. Kate was very helpful as we had to leave early on the day of departure, Kate had organize our breakfast much earlier for as.

Stayed for a night on our way through the Blue Mountains. The property is stunning, quirky and full of character. Kate is a superb host and we enjoyed every minute of our stay. The room was traditional, some my sy old fashioned but we found it clean and comfortable. Excellent breakfast set us up for the day. A good value... More

Kate and her husband are very welcoming persons, attentive to your well-being and your comfort. The room we had was small and cute, with air-conditioning or heating, and an electric blanket. The matress was very confortable. In the main living room, there is an open fire, that makes the guesthouse even more welcoming. That's definitely a nice place to rest... More

It is difficult to provide an overall rating because there's good and not so good. As for the good...the beds are very comfy and the room was very clean with a good reverse cycle air conditioner. The rooms are very small with no where to sit other than on the bed (we had the "standard" - least expensive room). The... More

We stayed at Glenella on a gorgeous Autumn weekend, sun was shining. Hostess Kate was very friendly and helpful. She told us all about her Triathlon training - admirable to say the least! Rooms were comfortable and we slept well with the windows open letting in the fresh mountain air. Had a leisurely breakfast on the deck - mocha coffees... More

What a let-down this place was, not at all what we were expecting from reading the website. The photographs were particularly misleading. From the moment we arrived and saw the advertising hoardings outside, we realised that we would not be staying in a charming B&B but in a Thai restaurant with a few rooms. There was no-one around to welcome... More

We spent two nights at Glenella's while hiking in the Blue Mountains. We stayed there as part of our arrangement with Auswalk so we were tied into the restaurant there for dinner. We were greeted by Erin who was a charming, friendly and helpful person. She managed the hotel part of the house during the day. She also made our... More

At the moment there are major bush fires and closed roads in the mountains. I requested for a change of date NOT A CANCELLATION. I have been told I have to pay for the weekend.

We stayed two nights in this authentic guesthouse with rooms and stained glas windows from the beginning of the 20th century, or may be older. It was a guesthouse from the beginning! If you like that then you definitly go there. It gives you a clear idea of what it was like in the past, but with all the amuinities... More
