I had moved out of my home and had a 4 day stay at Glenferrie Lodge Hotel before relocating to my new apartment. Concierge were very helpful and friendly, the room although small was clean, tidy and all I needed to sleep as I was out every night exploring the local restaurants - I felt very safe to venture out after dark on my own, streets are well lit. Walking the beautiful enchanting streets during the day, was both relaxing and exhilarating. Kirribilli is one of the most beautiful suburbs in Sydney with great walks and fabulous views of Sydney Harbour and the city lights at night are amazing. Train station is an easy walk too!

This was my first time staying in Kirribilli & it is where I will now stay when in Sydney. The Glenferrie Lodge is a beautiful traditional 4 level lodge in prime location at Kirribilli. Easy few minute walk to the ferry which in my opinion is the best way to get around. The streets are gorgeous & the views across the harbour amazing. Our stay was comfortable, with clean room & friendly staff. This is not the ritz but was very nice & very affordable. Be mindful there is no lift & you are required to climb one flight to get to the front door/reception so if you can’t do a lot of stairs request a room on the first floor. Would definitely stay here again!

This is a okay place to stay if you're used to hostels, but not a nice hotel I would recommend to my mum. The cleaners didn't even make up the beds each day, sometimes we got fresh towels but this was random. The floor wasn't swept once in the 6 night stay we were there so the floor got quite sandy. Coffee cups weren't cleaned or replaced ever. We were in room 50 right next to the garden so we had to listen to people talking late at night AND the early risers talking and laughing loudly outside our window. Staff didn't enforce the 10pm garden curfew. It just felt like a slack operation where the room was cheap and the service was too. It was close to kirribilli ferry port which was a saving grace.

Dear Brooklet17, I am very sorry that you didn't have a great stay at our hotel. We are a budget hotel and as such we don't have daily making of the beds. We change the sheets every 3rd day and we do sweep the rooms and change the garbage daily. All our cups are washed in the commercial kitchen in high temperature commercial dishwashers, unlike most our competitors who simply wash in the bathroom sink. This is done before any new check in. I have spoken to housekeeping to see if there was a mistake regarding the towels. To be more environmentally friendly we don't automatically change towels each day unless they are left on the floor. If they are hanging we only change them every 3 days. As for the noise outside I have also brought this up with the front desk. We do request guests to not be outside after 10.30pm and most of the time people agree with this as they understand we all appreciate quiet enjoyment. Again I am sorry you didn't enjoy your stay. We are not a 5 star hotel and do not pretend to be. We are a boutique budget hotel and our prices reflect this. I feel it may have been a disconnect between what you were expecting and what our hotel actually is.

I stayed at Glenferrie Lodge for 4 nights, before starting a roundtrip through Australia. I chose the place because it is a quiet area, and city center is only just across the water and 1 ferry away. It is a place with a soul, existing since 1923 and you can feel that. Staff was always very helpful and breakfast was very good. I liked my stay so much and immediately booked 2 more nights at the end of my trip, when taking a flight back from Sydney. Thanks Glenferrie Lodge!
