    Very good

    Quiet & clean. Cooked breakfast was a bonus as were the newspapers.

    I really didn't like the television being on in the breakfast room. I turned it off after asking if anyone would mind & everyone agreed that they would prefer it off. Then the girl came in who was doing the cleaning up & just switched it back on again without asking anyone! I don't see why we have to be subjected to the noise of a television at breakfast as none of the other guests seemed to watch it.

    Nice, relaxed feeling through and through. Great location in Kirribilli. Close to everything whilst still being a lovely area. Very recomendable for families, groups and solo travelers alike.

    The free newspaper in the morning.

    The facilities are dated and the room was very basic and needed a referb. The tv did not work properly, the fridge was extremely noisy and we had to turn it off to sleep and the bed could do with replacing. The breakfast was very fatty and you had to wait quite a while for more food. There was no fresh fruit only tined. The staff on reception were very grumpy and barely smiled and never said hello without prompting. The toilets needed to be cleaned more and were disgusting after 8am in the morning. The room was not serviced and our used coffee cups were still in the room 3 days later and not cleaned.

    Fabulous

    Great cooked breakfast, nice ooutdoor area for my daughter to play in, very close to the ferry wharf.

    Some noise from inconsiderate, drunken guests.

    Peaceful surroundings, close to many places of interest for us. Authentic building-once hospital built especially at the time of the building of the Harbour bridge, which looms close by. It is rambling,spacious, we were able to open windows for fresh air.. Easy access to public transport-ferry, train, bus.Good for walking . Harbour views either from the lodge itself, or just down the road.The city is just across the harbour. Luna Park is not far away....the lights (but not the noise ) can be seen as you amble round under the bridge.

    Perfect location. 5 min walk from North Harbour Bridge, 5/10 min to Circular Quay with the ferry. very Nice area. Great breakfast included. Cooking facilities + variety of tables/rooms for breakfast/Lunch/Dinner.

    Room (n° 27) size and view (wall).

    Good

    On a quiet location only ten minutes on the ferry away from the Circulair Quay (and central Sydney). Breakfast is good.

    Made two short visits within a week. On the first visit I did not get the room as booked via your site. The second visit I did get the advertised room. So, please keep in mind you may not get the room as booked.

    Fabulous

    It was the first time I stayed in Sydney North, the Lodge was clean and had an atmosphere of being warm and friendly. I like the communal help yourself buffet breakfast in the mornings. People appeared at ease and liking their experience too. My room was clean and tidy and the noise level was perfect for catching good quality sleep.Thank you. I have put Glenferrie Lodge into my future reference of a economic place to stay while enjoying Sydney.

    Not value for money. very very low standard of accommodation. Wouldn't stay again. Wet areas dangerous. Wet walkways dangerous. First room offered you couldn't swing a cat, muchless put a suitecase down. Nothing about this place was at a standard expected.

    Poor ironing facilities and shared bathroom is not ideal for a business traveller. I only stayed here as there was nothing else available in the area under $350.

    Superb

    Lovely 112 year-old house 5 mins from ferry stops and harbour foreshore and 10 mins from Milsons Point train station It was remarkable value for money with access to Sydney Harbour and Circular Quay facilities. Lovely garden, excellent breakfast, rooms a little hot but there are ceiling fans. Staff adequate not over friendly but helpful. 70 rooms and many people passing through; all ages and stages. Book on the web and early and you get a bargain.

    Two children from the UK staying were a b it noisy and not well-controlled.

    Absolutely nothing ! I was horrified too see my room had no basin,or shower.You had to use communial showers,and toilets ! So i had to leave the room in the middle of the night to use the toilet facilities,of which was horrid.as they only got cleaned once a day ! (inc:showers ).The logde was very dirty,especially the showers and carpets.I personally didn't enjoy one minute of my stay at Glenferrie Lodge and met like minded people their also ! I found the staff including the cleaning staff very rude and abrubt ! On a whole,if you are the type of person of whom doesn't mind sharing showers with strangers,filth,and lack of respect ,then this is the place for you !

    Absolutely 'EVERYTHING'....!!! The staff were rude and abrubt.The Lodge was very dirty aswell as having all communial showers and toilets,so no privasy at all ! The toilets and showers only get cleaned once a day,so plenty of hair and dirt ! Just overall a very unpleasant experience ! Would not reccommend it to anyone !

    it was average, okay breakfast, okay room, but fantastic location and seconds away from amazing views of the harour

    It would have been nice if when i my room was serviced to get clean mugs and fresh tea and coffee, instead the bin in my room was emptied and my bed made twice in the two weeks i was staying there
