This was booked for us by someone else so had no idea what we were getting. But pleasantly surprised. Clean - good kitchen facilities - helpful staff (and usually very available). Linen was of good quality. There weren't as many cafes open for brunch on the weekend as i'd hoped but we managed

Glebe Point Road is a great area, lots of bars and cafes, close to the universities so pretty young demographics. I found the guest house's quality very good for the price charged. The stuff is extremely friendly and helpful. I stayed in a single en suite room.

I was there for 1 month and I had to change room 3 times. The first room was ok. The second room was nice but was next to a tree and every morning at 6am I was awake due to birds singing. The 3rd room was a disaster. There was a pipe coming from the room above me with very... More

Great location, just a short cab or bus ride into the CBD. Great if you just need a bed for the night. We shared a bathroom but this wasn't a problem as we had 2 to choose from. Walking distance to a lot of great cafes and restaurants.

The doubleroom was so small that we could not open our suitcases. The house and the rooms need urgent renovation. The backyard was badly kept with all kind of junk. We were mislead by the guesthouse rating, they inform they have three and half stars. I seriously doubt it.

Sorry you were so unhappy with your stay with us. The time you stayed with us was the New Year period and we were fully booked with a lot of young people as the Fireworks display does tend to attract. We did do our best to allocate a bigger room to you once it became possible. Our Guest House rating... More

A place to stay only if it is the only place available. The room temperature management is poor. The beds are not for anyone sensitive to a good nights sleep. Rooms are poorly insolated to sound so you will hear everything in close proximity. The decor is non-existent, and cleanliness is ok.

Sorry you were unhappy with your stay. Our room temperature control is by electric coil heater or fan. The Skylight in the room is also ventilated. The bed in the room is 6 months old. Glad to hear that you thought the cleanliness was OK. More

Great location, various choice of foods around, close to pubic transport. 10' to CBD by bus. Though we arrived lately (midnight), we got a lovely warm welcome by staff. Jolie was helpful welcoming. Even the middle-aged cleaner, he was also friendly and cheerful. Kitchen facilities were tidy and clean. Thanks.

Staying in Glebe

Neighborhood Profile
An inner city suburb along the water, Glebe has a deep-rooted sense of cultural history and heritage. It originated as a semi-rural resort for the well-to-do, but has transformed into a student-centric melting pot. Visit Glebe Point Road for ethnic cuisine as standard as Mexican, Indian, Italian and Chinese, or as diverse as Spanish, Bavarian, Polish, Czech and Lebanese. You will find that Glebe is accepting of the eccentrics and aboriginals that roam the streets, integrating students and people of all economic statuses into the multi-cultural fabric that distinguishes this suburb. Glebe Foreshore is a great destination for a leisurely walk along the Bay, and the Saturday market is a great scene for bargain hunters.
