We have visited the Blue Mountains on 11/2 travelling by car from Sydney. We choose Glenella Lodge as it is located on an heritage house and based on the advice of Lonely Planet. We were very lucky as the lodge exceeded our expectations. The location, the decor and the patio are lovely and the house maintains the old features, for... More

Rowen and Margaret were very friendly, informal and relaxed. Good value rooms with breakfast included. Old world charm, Glenella has a rich history and the new owners are slowly returning it to its former glory. A popular Thai restaurant is housed within the establishment. Glenella is close to shops, restaurants and blue mountain walks/hikes. Would definitely stay again.

The house's renovation is sympathetic to it's heritage and the location is very handy to Blackheath yet peaceful and in leafy surroundings. The breakfast was wonderful and plentiful with cereal and cooked breakfast, finished off with fresh fruit. Everything was relaxed and quiet and we didn't hear the couple next door or others outside. The Thai restaurant in the house... More

We booked a standard room, it was the only one left, but as we were only sleeping one night and were visiting friends we were only going to be sleeping there and not spending any time in the room so the size of the room didn't worry us. The room was very clean, as was the ensuite. Bed was comfortable... More

Being a local I am very excited about the new ownership and refurbishment taking place at this beautiful old Blackheath icon! It has had a long history of being a wonderful, hospitable guest house/restaurant and is now getting the renovation it deserves. The new owners (great travellers themselves), seem to be relishing the opportunity to bring back to life this... More

We loved this place. We wanted to stay in places with character and this definitely fits the bill. This is an old building so has a few blemishes but that is more than made up for by its features and history. The new owners Margaret and Rowan couldn't have been more helpful, friendly and informative. The guest house is brilliant... More

We had a wonderful couple of nights at Glenella whilst doing some bushwalks. The new owners were wonderful. Very friendly and helpful. Nothing was too much trouble for them. The room was great, well equipped and comfortable.

Having arrived and found out that we messed up the booking (we booked the wrong dates), we were relieved to find out they had a spare room and could accommodate us for the 2 nights we were expecting to stay, and they were very nice about it. The building itself is a charming place, but it does feel very tired... More

We only had an overnight stay after doing the Oaks Fire trail mountain bike ride. Nice clean and comfortable room with a split system air conditioner. The guest house recently changed owners and the new owners have plans to revamp the guest house. The guest house has such charm and character and is only a few minutes walk to the... More

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...
