We booked this lodge via hostel world and just wanted a double room whilst we were travelling. We were pleasantly surprised when we saw the lodge and the rooms! The photos don't do it justice really. Although basic, they were very comfortable with a TV, mini fridge etc! Good location, an east 10 min walk to a train station. Good...

Dear Watto4538, Thank you for your fantastic 5 star review. I'm glad that you enjoyed the breakfast and our friendly drop in Kookaburra's and Rosellas (or maybe Lorikeets?) However I am glad that you are a return guest and look forward to you coming back to visit us again soon Sincerely JC Branch

As always the main attraction for me was the fact that Glenferrie has a few dog friendly rooms. It was a nice surprise though to find such reasonably priced decent accommodation so close to the ferries to Sydney. Kirribilli high street very close and chock full of cafes and bars and the area itself is safe, upmarket and very grand....

Dear Ozfran, Thank you for your great comments. Yes we love our pet guests and do have a few rooms which are pet friendly. Our breakfast is justifiably famous and while not really designed for lunch I don't think that's the worst problem in the world. I'm also pleased that you found the bed comfy and clean and look forward...

Dear jrybak2016, I am sorry that your most recent stay was not the best and I'd like to comment on a couple of things. Firstly a hotel keeping your credit card details on file is actually illegal as it puts your credit card details in danger of hacking and we would rather ensure the security of our guests and do...

We had a celebratory dinner in Manly and decided to stay over in Kirribilli after post dinner drinks at Circular Quay. We were allocated a double no bath. The room was quite small but modern and had a pleasant view of the rear garden. Air Conditioned, TV. Great bed so comfy. The bathroom was just across the hall which had...

The room was small, I mean very very very small and unclean. wifi is ok. there is no hairdryer in the room, and shared bathroom is a very bad thing. Think twice before book. the best thing about the hotel is complimentary breakfast.
