A lovely bed and breakfast perfectly located right in the heart of Blackheath village. Right next to all the, cafes, restaurants and shops. And only a short drive to Evans Lookout, Govetts Leap, Megalong Valley and the charming Rhododendron Gardens. Margaret, Rowan, Indi and Matt are warm, welcoming and friendly. The rooms are very comfortable and the verandah rooms open... More

Stayed here for to nights whilst trekking through the beautiful Blue Mountains. The owners made every effort to make sure everyone got their special attention and made us feel very welcome throughout. The room was comfortable and clean, breakfast was more than enough for the day's trekking ahead. Excellent - highly recommended.

We had a lovelly stay at Glenella last week. Such a warm welcome from Margareth in this so special house, full of charm. It was chilly when we arrived and she immediately proposed a hot chocolate. Rooms are comfortable, super clean. All day coffee/tea possibility in room or common areas, nice games available for adults or kids. She had very... More

In 40 years of travelling, this was my worst hotel/motel/B&B experience bar none. I had booked a room 10 months in advance because I knew that weekend would be booked out, and it was.

Online reservation fail. This was undoubtedly a very bad experience and we sympathise with your plight. Perhaps this review should have been done in two parts. Firstly the "large, well-known and much used website, a few days before" which is the beginning of your bad experience should get a review. These overseas web based agencies have systems which are not... More

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.

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.

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
