just a stones throw from Kirribilli Wharf for easy access to the cbd you can't get better value that this place. Nice and simple decor, shared bathrooms only distraction but for the price, a quiet location and throw in a buffet breakfast you'd be crazy not to consider this place!

The hotel was a good hotel. Not to far from the city where you can take the ferry and in 5 min your in the city already. Nice view of the opera house. Free buffet breakfast which was superb and free wifi which is very rare in most hotel's in Sydney. At first I was iffy about the shared bathroom...

Glenferrie Lodge became my home away from home during my recent 9 month commute to Sydney.

This was my second stay at Glenferrie. It is clean, comfortable and quiet. I love the back garden. Many cosmetic improvements since my last stay including the breakfast room. Very nicely done.

Paid a higher price than we usually would when travelling and were not disappointed. The location on Sydney's north shore was perfect, very close ferry ride to town but far enough away to feel free of the hustle and bustle. The gorgeous building added to this feel. The room was cosy and clean and the bathrooms were well kept. Room...

Very nice. Such a wonderful part of Sydney and the ferry ride is magical. Sai and the staff are just so friendly. The free hot breakfast is delicious. Probably the safest part of Sydney!

Go by ferry, that's the easiest. Just wonderful for the friendly staff, great included breakfast and cleanliness. I paid four times the amount at Darling Harbour last week, for no included breakfast; a view over the garbage bins, a dirty bathroom and very unfriendly staff. I will stay at Glenferrie from now on.
