Stayed here for about 10 days recently during my first time in WA. In terms of location the hotel is great – right in the centre of everything and minutes walk to anything you want. The rooms are just as good, comfortable and with plenty of space. The room is expensive as you would expect but I accept that as part of the place. Being on a rate negotiated by my company, I assumed that something would be included but even on this rate very little was. Parking offered by the hotel is valet only at about AUD40, not a big deal since there is daily parking very near for about AUD$7. Breakfast and evening buffet were both very expensive too – and it felt all the sillier for how many much better options are all around the hotel for less. Internet is of course the one that bugged me the most; it was about AUD20 for so many hours. You get a small period for free but it is nothing really and it is slow and buggy – disconnecting frequently, which is a problem if you are trying to work over a vpn. Even purchased it was the same.
The hotel is comfortable in a good location but the constant charging for anything but the most basic provisions really does detract from the atmosphere. Still good, but a bit grabby in that regard.
