We had a delightful weekend stay at Glenella - the owners were welcoming, friendly and helpful. The room was small but very comfortable and warm enough in what was the middle of winter, and there was free wifi. There is a nice common area with a fire place, and an inviting eating area for breakfast each morning which had a... More

Wow, where to start. How about...what a wonderful experience! From the moment we walked through the doors of this charming guesthouse, the owners, Margaret & Rowan treated us with service that was second to none, we didn't want to leave at the end of our stay. From the cosy fireplace in the living area, to the beautifully prepared full breakfast,... More

Our stay at Glenella Guesthouse is one of the most memorable part of our trip to Blue Mountains. The hosts (Margaret & Rowan) are friendly and warm. The cosy living room has 2 seating areas with log burning fire place and the breakfast area was big & bright in the morning. The interconnecting rooms we booked with one bathroom in... More

We stayed here for two nights, during some freezing weather. Our room was cosy and the open fire in the lounge in the evenings was beautiful! I believe it's being changed to a wood heater soon, and that will be just as good. It's a charming old place (early 1900s) and has been beautifully restored. Margaret and Rowan were friendly...

When four wet bushwalkers arrived Margaret gave us a very warm welcome, after hot showers and cups of tea by the fire, we were completely refreshed. Rooms are not large but are well appointed, and as there are spacious sitting areas either by the fire or by the large windows its a lovely place to relax. A few minutes walk... More

We stayed here on the Anzac weekend and had a lovely stay in what is a small, laid-back town. The accomodation is slightly dated, however this really suits the style that the guesthouse is trying to achieve. The hosts were very welcoming and were always willing to offer their recommendations of the area. The rooms are very cozy and well... More

Glenella has a lovely welcoming vibe, thanks to friendly laidback hosts Margaret and Rowan, who have put a lot of thought into the guest experience, from their tasty home-cooked breakfasts to the good quality bedding and towels. We felt very comfortable and spent quite a bit of time in the communal areas, watching TV or just sitting in a sunny... More

Quiet and homely living areas, helpful and friendly hosts, interesting fellow guests, good breakfast and pleasant surroundings are all available at Glenella. We celebrated our diamond wedding anniversary by staying in this historic old guest house and could not have been more delighted by the warm welcome we received and the general atmosphere.
