According to the literature given to us upon arrival Glenella Guest House has been operating as a guest house since 1909. In a building with such character it has been good to see a considerable number of the new additions have been kept in sympathy with the original decor. Keeping to the integrity of the building is paramount in a business that puts so much emphasis on personal service and I can see why it is so popular with wedding parties.
We however are just here for a couple of days and find it an excellent base from which to do some sightseeing in the Blue Mountain area.
With very comfortable rooms and tea making facilities in the room we felt very soon at home. As this part of Australia is subject to climatic variations we more associate with our home in the UK it was pleasing to see that the temperature control on the a/c doubles as a heater too, we needed this a little last night!
A relaxing communal lounge with large TV and ample supply of DVD's was appreciated as too was the veranda for outside sitting should the temperature rise. In the restaurant/dining room a very unique 14 seater couch certainly turned a few heads over a very ample breakfast.
Glenella is just off the main road in a very quiet end of Blackheath but easily within walking distance of a good number of differing dining experiences. With our host, Katherine, able to point us to a number of recommended restaurants our only problem seems to be not arranging to stay longer! A very relaxing break from the noise and mayhem of central Sydney, not so far away but, as far as we are concerned, in another world.
