The room was small, I mean very very very small and unclean. wifi is ok. there is no hairdryer in the room, and shared bathroom is a very bad thing. Think twice before book. the best thing about the hotel is complimentary breakfast.

Dear Ahmet Yalçın G, I would like to personally apologise for your experience at Glenferrie lodge. We have rooms generally to suit all budgets, our least expensive rooms are very compact and we do not try to hide this fact. We do have rooms that are also much larger, and they generally are more expensive. We also have hairdryers available...

Our room was advertised as a balcony room, but the balcony space was mainly taken up with the air conditioning unit. There was not enough room left for two chairs. It was nice to have fresh air when the door was open. Our room was small and clean with a comfortable bed, but no bedside lights. The shared facilities had...
