    Very good

    I loved the house itself- beautiful high ceilings and carved staircase railings. The breakfast was excellent- highly recommended! I loved sitting in the breakfast room and having a view of the autumn trees and the harbour. Unforgettable! It was so close to the Kirribilli ferry- very convenient and a great treat!

    My next door neighbour must have been suffering from some sort of respiratory complaint. She coughed and hacked and spat loudly all night; she paced the creaky floorboards in the corridors outside my room in the early hours of the morning, and slammed her bedroom door repeatedly . My pillows were way too flat, so all in all I got no sleep at all. Moreover, two of the toilets on the second floor did not flush and were full of paper and excreta. There was no bench in the showers for clothes/ towels/ bags etc.

    The breakfasts were wonderful, and the other visitors to the hotel were very friendly.

    I found the steep steps at the front very difficult with my trolley bag.

    Fabulous

    Excellent location in a beautiful area that allowed easy access to the city via a picturesque ferry ride without all the noise and bustle of the city itself. The breakfast was hearty, the shared bathrooms kept very clean, and the outdoor garden was great touch.

    The noise from people coming up the outdoor stairs and slamming the doors as they entered the hotel was disruptive, especially late at night. Also, it would have been nice to get a fresh bath towel everyday.

    I hated this dirty and disgusting place. Even my dog has better living conditions than Glenferrie lodge!!!! Please I urge you don't recommend this place even to your enermies. The room was dingy, dusty, cobwebs, bathroom and toilets were like the worst public toilets you can find. I purposely didn't drink much fluids so that I don't have to use their bathroom. Hated it!!! Only, only good thing I can say about this place was the Indian guy at reception when I was checking out seemed genuine and nice. So to be fair to him, he is a great staff member. The other reception guy, Mark, was arrogant and did not want anything to do with you. Hated my stay at this craphole. It says upfront that it's a three star place, more like a minus 20 star.

    Parking was terrible and the room was very poor value with a share bathroom with hardly enough room to get changed, I checked out with a second night not used.

    Good

    The location is great - an easy walk to the ferry to central Sydney.

    There is no assistance available to carry bags up stairs. The room smelled musty. I had to change rooms because the room did not have a lock on the window. I was moved to a smaller room. Since only one person can process a refund, I have tried to process the refund via email. I am still waiting for a response after 4 days.

    Superb

    A very quaint lodge. Great atmosphere with interesting people from all walks of life.

    Our room needed to have a window so we could close the door but still receive air thru the night.

    The small garden adjoining a parking garage.

    The many stairs to the rooms, showers and toilets on the landing, the lack of involvement of the staff and the luggage at aud8 a day.

    Very good location in Kirribilli, North Sydney. 2 minutes walk to the Kirribilli ferry and 10-15 minutes to Milsons Point (train and ferry). Nice full breakfast included!

    Shared bathrooms are not preferable, but worked out okay. Internet access was very expensive! No air con.

    clean room, proximity to City

    bathrooms are shared by both men and women, and are at the end of the alleyway. no washbasin in room.

    Good

    The location is excellent. Directly opposite the opera!

    None of the rooms has ensuite bathrooms and this was never clear during the booking! I would still recommend the hotel to budget conscious travelers, who look for a good location.

    Superb

    Glenferrie is in easy commuting distance ( by ferry ) from Circular quay and darling Harbour etc, or walking distance to the Zoo. Buffet service cooked breakfast was simple and adequate, with cereals, juice tea coffee in abundant supply. Excellent value for money.

    An earlier check-in time would be beneficial, and shared bathrooms are a bit of a bind.
