Great value, within limits

This hotel has good service, comfy beds, is in a quiet area, and is sensible walking distance to public transport. It is very good value given it is so close to Sydney and is in one of the city's most expensive suburbs, complete with spectacular harbour views. Shared bathroom facilities were fine. The twin-share room was workable - certainly not too small. Breakfasts were ok but healthier options would be better. Parking is the main constraint. It is best to get a cab if you've got substantial luggage, otherwise you may have a substantial walk from your car to the hotel, and to comply with parking restrictions, you'd need to move your car during work hours (ok overnight).

My favoutite area in Sydney

Second time back. Some decor touchups and renovations since. Cons: lots of stairs to climb may keep you fit so could almost be a pro, poor lighting in rooms. Shared bathrooms. One of the reception guys seems like he can barely communicate or understand english other guys are fine. No aircon in some rooms. Pros: location, charming historical area with lots trees, nearby luna park ferry stops kirribilli, milson point ferry and train station. Stunning sydney harbour bridge and cityline views. Range of local restaurants nearby. Buffet breakfast free every day can be a money saver.

Money-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

If staying for a week get a Multpass for unlimited trips for a week which is better than the Opal card in this case due to ferry stop being a couple of mins walk away. Ferry fares will drain funds on an opal card being several dollars or so each trip. Plus a ferry ride to kirribilli across sydney harbour is always awesome to do.

The Governor General as a neighbour

This place is one of the best B&Bs in Sydney. The room, the food, the garden in which you can take your breakfast to eat or just enjoy, the children's playground - all amenities are all well laid out and thoughtfully arranged. I loved the fact you can take animals there and how well they made sure that the rules were clearly set out as to where you could take them so that they wouldn't impact on others. And as for the location . . . three minute walk one way to Kirribilli ferry wharf or the other way to a bus stop [just outside the Governor General's abode]. All that and a quiet area as well. I will definitely be returning and very happy to recommend to others.

Great for a one night stay

Accommodation room was clean and comfortable. Being older I did find the stairs a challenge. I had no problems with the bathrooms but they could be updated. Staff were friendly breakfast excellent. I would stay there again.

cheap and good

Super cheap, with awesome hot breakfast. Clean simple rooms, close to ferries and train station and shops. Quiet Area. Parking was a pain, is $32 to park at Luna Park for the day, not $20. Would recommend to budget conscious travellers. Book a week ahead for best rates.

Buy a daily return for the ferry trip to and from Keribilli and Central Quay as well as a daily train ticket (much cheaper)

A long weekend at Glenferrie

The room was spotless and shared bathrooms mostly OK. Note that there are no tea making facilities in the room, not even a glass to get some water! The guest lounge is intended to provide these basic comforts but if you arrive home expecting to find a clean cup or glass, forget it. They were all dirty every night by 10pm and stacked in the dirty crockery station.

Room was average, shared bathroom also average though not inconvenient. The included breakfast was first rate and set us up for the day and reduced the room cost to negligible as the breakfast was that good. It included several breads for toasting, cereals, processed and fresh fruit, eggs, bacon, sausages, tomatoes, baked beans, fried potato, fruit juices, tea and coffee. The complimentary tea and coffee were available all day. The location was almost perfect. Parking was a problem but that can be solved by a parking centre the other side of the harbour bridge about 10 minutes walk away. Sydney public transport is cheap and reliable and offers a bus to the door and a ferry less than 2 minutes walk away. This hotel offers access to Sydney at an affordable cost. We enjoyed our 3 days and will use it again as it was the best of several Sydney stays we have had.

Walk the harbour bridge, or take the ferry to circular quay near wharf 5 there is a licensed pizza / pasta place with real people giving great service at a reasonable cost. Dine in or out or takeaway.
