Close to Perth attractions

Staff were very impersonal. Although when approached were helpful enough. Cafe attached to hotel is ordinary. Closeness to transport and Perth city attractions is the best part.

Run down

I only stayed here one night waiting for a connecting flight. I am not sure I would stay here again. The room was clean, and the bathroom modern. The air conditioner rattled and struggled all night. The hotel is run down but for one night it was fine. Its in the centre of Perth. Would I recommend this hotel to anyone or would I stay here again and the answer is 'no'.

Not recommended

Not a good experience Room allocated was the smallest in the hotel. Requested a change but hotel was 'fully booked' although we didn't see more than half a dozen guests. Curtains and window were filthy although they were cleaned (inside) after we complained. Not the outside and it was impossible to see out. Bed was comfortable - location excellent Not recommended

Good base for sightseeing

I enjoyed my stay here Good things: Helpful staff at reception; they gave advice about coach trips. I did the Margaret River one and it was very good. Good food & good service in the restaurant. Nice breakfast. Restaurant never crowded. Excellent location for everything. Red line CAT bus right opposite hotel (free). You can walk everywhere easily too. The room was quiet at night. 2 Computers in lobby. Could be improved: Wifi was hit and miss in my room. Windows in my room had opaque glass & cannot be seen through or opened. Luckily I could open one window. Window frames/panes/sills old & need cleaning or updating.

Pathetic.....Never Stay Here Again!

Old, smelly room. Disgusting shower w/ dirt and hair on floor tiles... really gross.Poor ventilation and an a/c that didn't perform. Over priced, no internet, Nothing in the bar fridge except an open jug of water (probably filled in the bathroom sink). DO NOT stay here. Spend a few dollars more for something else.
