The renovations have included replacement of all prior beds with Sealy Pillow Top Mattresses and installing safes in each room. New refrigerators have been installed, that comprise thermoelectric silencers. The hotel rooms and communal area carpets have been replaced with modern boutique style designs, designed for long term traffic and for noise reduction.

Throughout the whole building, brand new LED lighting has been installed, creating a more attractive visual of accent pieces including lamps, tables and chairs. The large communal garden area also received attention with a play area for kids and comfortable outdoor furniture.
Glenferrie Lodge was acquired by the Cramley Group, owners of the nearby Cremorne Point Manor hotel in Cremorne Point, on 3 December 2013. As founder Jean Claude Branch validates “The renovations started immediately so we could attract more budget travelers. Not only have we completed these renovations on time, but also repainted the Lodge interior and exterior, while also renovating the breakfast and lounge room buffet area.” He adds “We additionally removed the existing, aging furniture and replaced them with new modern accent pieces. We’re really pleased with the results.”
As a result of the refurbishment, the Lodge has seen a dramatic increase in bookings and attracted more price conscious business travellers based on the hotel’s near proximity to North Sydney business center.
Glenferrie Lodge is the only budget boutique hotel in the heart of Kirribilli, NSW. This 19th Century heritage guest house is located on the same street as the Prime Minister’s residence and a short walk to North Sydney and Milsons Point Train Station. It’s ideal for business travelers, backpackers, budget conscious visitors and is the only pet friendly hotel in the area.
