So thrilled to have "discovered" Glenferrie Lodge after we needed accommodation for a wedding at Aqua Dining. The service was excellent and friendly. Room spotless and modern. Shared bathrooms couldn't be faulted and no inconvenience at all as located just at the end of the hall. Breakfast was amazing! Pancakes with maple syrup; lovely hot selection; juices; pastries; and more...

The Lodge here seems to be even better than the last times we were there.. Just so spotlessly clean and lovely views of the Harbour on the walk to the station. The attention by staff was first class and having shuttle bus arranged to the airport was a plus, saving transfers. Cooked breakfast eaten in the garden was a great...

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!

Paid a higher price than we usually would when travelling and were not disappointed.
