We were a little disappinted in Glenferrie Lodge. It was a lot bigger than we had expected and had a real backpacker/boarding school feel about it. The room was OK and the bed comfortable but the shared facilities were not adequate for the number of rooms. We had to queue for a shower in the morning and the water wasn't...

Dear Tracy, I am sorry that you did not find Glenferrie up to your expectations. We are a budget hotel (definitely not a backpackers). but we try to ensure we are excellent value in the market. I'm not sure where else you can get similar location for the price. Our rooms feature excellent quality mattress's AC, LCD tv's Tea coffee,...

If you want a convenient location to the CBD, but want a quiet neighborhood, this hotel is a great choice. Rooms are very small, but they have many public spaces where you can sit. Breakfast is excellent. Enjoyed sitting outside and listening to birds in the garden. Restaurants and shops within walking distance. Easy access to CBD from the ferry...

Dear Fahren, Thank you kindly for your lovely review. We sincerely appreciate anytime a guest takes the time to write, and especially when it's so positive. We do have larger rooms available as well as ensuite rooms, however we do always try to ensure we have good value rooms as well as we want to remain a boutique budget hotel....

A good place, in a nice, quiet street, just one minute walk to the Kirribilli ferry which takes you in 10 minutes to Circular Quay, the Opera and Sydney CBD. The ensuite room was large, clean. The whole place probably needs a bit of facelift.

Dear Yakshaver, Thank you for your positive comments about Glenferrie. We are always looking to improve and we did renovate the whole interior less than 2 years ago. we do not rest on our laurels and are always improving. I have a person employed full time just to keep up with the painting of the rooms. I appreciate your comments...

Exceptional value for money. Very close to Kirribilli Wharf and within walking distance to Kirribilli Village, Luna Park and Milsons Point Station. Plenty of bathrooms so not an issue for rooms without an ensuite. Breakfast thrown in with a hot and cold buffet and even pancakes. Beautiful gardens and breakout areas. Not disability friendly unfortunately.

We loved the look of the building and the location so first impressions were perfect. We got a shock when we found that there were only shared bathroom , showers and toilets avaliable down the hall and they were unisex add well. In the end I didn't mind having to go to a common shower and toilet but it was...

Dear Hana, Thank you for your review. We sincerely appreciate the feedback. We do try in all our advertising to clearly state that most of our rooms are shared bathrooms. We do have some ensuite rooms and if you do choose to come back we suggest booking one of these rooms if the shared facilities are not your cup of...

This hotel was a beautiful surprise. After being price shocked trying to find a place to stay in Sydney, I was skeptical about this hotel because it seemed reasonable and nice. I was not disappointed. The bed was comfortable, the hotel was quiet, and the whole place kind of felt like I had somehow cheated and found a much nicer...

We stayed in this guest house because it was pet friendly. It had a large back garden in which our dog could roam. Our room was on the ground floor and was dark and basic in furnishings. The room was quiet at night. Staff were friendly.

Really great for what we needed. Great location close to train or ferry. Wasn't sure what to expect with shared bathroom but pleasantly surprised. Looks like it's been recently upgraded. Breakfast was great value and the place had a nice family feel. Only negative - the place needs regular thorough vacuuming in and under beds etc. would stay again!

My stay at the Glenferrie Lodge was very nice. The location is great, very close to some great views across to the opera house, skyline and harbour bridge, and also very close to the train station and ferry terminal. The surroundings are nice, very quite with some restaurants and shops nearby. The room itself was clean, unfortunately it was quite...

Nice, basic hotel in wonderful location. Some of the rooms have shared facilities but I have always found them to be clean and I never had to wait. The single bedrooms are a bit small, but the bed is comfy and the towels are clean. Breakfast comes at an additional 10 dollars but is included if you book directly through...
