Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

My husband's family stayed in Drake's around 16 years ago when they went to Perth to attend his graduation ceremony.
The apartment & car were very new and Barren was very friendly then.

We went there again last year November with our 3 year-old son for 1 week.
We were very disappointed to find that the apartment was quite worn out & tired now, seem like no refurbishment has been done for the passed years.
One of the blankets have cigarette holes & you will be shocked to see the dust underneath the beds (we saw it accidentally)

As for Barry, he is not friendly at all & indeed very emotional & rude.
We waited for him at the wrong area at the airport, he talked very rude to us that we wasted his time and almost made him fined by the police as he was not supposed to wait there long time.
Well, we were definitely shocked to encounter such service on the first day.
In fact, we have wanted to move to another hotel after his rude approach at the airport & after seeing the tired condition of the apartment, however since the apartment was already fully paid when booking was done, we have to stay.
We were lucky that he was "ok" to us during our 1 week stay -- we saw him shouted at some guests at the reception one morning & quarelled with another guest.

I think the only good thing about Drake's apartment is that it is cheap compares to other accomodation in Perth.
Hotels in general are very expensive in Perth, Drakes's apartment is considered a good deal as the room rate comes with car rental & airport pickup -- though both the apartment & car are very old.
The toyota corolla we have was 15-18 years old, good enough for you to travel around the city but will be risky to drive outskirt.
Besides being old & dated, the apartment is basically quite well furnished -- kitchenette, TV, sofa in the living room, washing machine and dryer.
Location wise is good & relaxing as it is a just a short walk to the Swan River.

Conclusion-- if you have better budget , stay elsewhere.
It really depends on your luck to get a decent service from Barry.

I telephoned Drakes at approximately 12.30 pm to check whether they had a vacancy for the night. I was advised by someone who announced himself as Barry Drake that I needed to make a reservation over the internet. When I said that I wasn't sure if I wanted to make a reservation nd that I just wanted to know if there were any vacancies, Barry told me that they didn't accept telephone reservations and I should apply over the internet and they'd let me know if there were any vacancies. As I was anxious about getting a bed for the night I completed the internet request for an apartment, which required me to provide my credit card details. I received an automated response telling me that I'd be advised later whether or not I had a reservation.

No more than half an hour later I was obliged to try and cancel the reservation (that had yet to be confirmed) Another call to Barry followed. I tried to explain the situation and cancel the potential reservation and ascertain how much, if anything, would be charged to my credit card. Barry told me that people like me were the reason they didn't take telphone reservations, he didn't know what I'd be charged and that if I'd read the terms and conditions I would know anyway. He then slammed the phone down on me.

A third call followed immediately - Barry then told me that he was not actually at the hotel, but talking from his mobile in the car and had no intention of holding a conversation with me. When I asked how I could talk directly to the hotel (I was calling on the only number provided) he advised me that I couldn't speak to anyone else, they were too busy dealing with paperwork and reservations and that I'd just have to wait and see what would be charged to my credit card.

I then tried to e-mail the hotel but discovered there was no e-mail address on their website and that the only means of communication were either through the single phone number provided, ie try and have a fourth conversation with Barry, or through the internet enquiry system which would not process any contact without the provision of a credit card number.

This whole process occurred within a period of abut an hour and a half. I still have no idea if my card is being charged.

I was referred to drakes apartments by a colleague who regularly travels to Perth. I had never heard of them but made some enquiries and booked an apartment which was offered with a car which included airport collection. It sounded great. I made a reservation through their web page and was more than happy with the service they provided. I had a lovely apartment in a quiet street, my flight was delayed until quite late in the evening but drakes still collected me from the airport. I travel many places in the world due to my business links but have never encountered a service which offers accommodation, a vehicle and an airport collection no matter what the time of arrival. Excellent value when you include all of this and a very innovative idea.
I will continue to stay at drakes apartments on my future visits to Perth.

I can't believe there are positive reviews here, especially if the holiday makers have met Barry Drake.
When we first met him he was having a heated argument with another customer, and it was only a matter of time before he also turned on us.
His cars & apartments have childish stickers everywhere informing you that you can't do this or that.
He took money from my credit card to supposedly fill up the car after I had filled it to the top & then he used the same car to drive us to the airport!
He made disparaging remarks referring to smelly Asian cooking.
All told, we would never return, and in fact he should be reported to the authorities as he is not a fit provider, and does little to provide a positive 'Ozzie image'!

I had a booking with Drakes Apartments and i can tell you that the owners Karen Ward and Barrie Drake are the most arrogant and obnoxious hospitality workers i have ever seen in Australia They were absolutely disrespect when i was trying to change our reservations. Barrie even made racist comment about my accent. If you want to have the worst experience of your life then definitely Drakes Apartment is the definition of rudeness and below poor level of service.

I'm glad that I'm back in Singapore now! I stayed at a 3 room apartment with my family at Drakes & it was a horrible experience. I was there about 6 years ago & the stay was quite comfortable then. To our disappointment, everything is so different this time round. Understand that furniture & equipment will suffer wear & tear, but just couldn't accept the damaged shower head, the lice & stains on the beddings & sofa & the smell of the fertilizer on the plants placed in the apartments. I was hoping that I don't smell like cow dung in the plane! We were also freezing like anything 'cos the reverse cycle air conditioning wasn't working. Only thing I liked was the dryer in the laundry room. The washing machine was too manual for my parents - luckily I knew how to use it 'cos I used that kind of machine when I was studying in Perth. I promised myself I won't ever stay there again!

I made a booking well in advance and had to cancel it 2 days later. They kept the deposit. BE AWARE of this with bookings. It is hidden as the last item in the T and C after all the info on cars. Discussion with the owner was very negative and there was absolutely no good will on their behalf. Would not use them or recommend them.

I called Drake's to ask if I could come by and have a quick look at one of the apartments for my mother who's coming to Perth to visit in a few months. Was answered by Barry Drake himself, who explained that inspections are not OK, they are an unreasonable drain on his time, and that if he had to show the apartments to everyone he'd go out of business. I'm guessing that he's probably right; my impression is that the apartments wouldn't impress and meeting Mr Drake would be enough to turn most folks away.

I'm certainly not interested anymore and won't subject my mother to this kind of environment.

Firstly the people at the front counter are extremely rude and arrogant. They think they are god sent. THe manager the lady is extremely rude and not at all accomodating. The messy old guy with a pony tail is worse, i remember a specific comment..when i was previewing the apartment " if your here to see the place just see don't ask me" and "if you smoke get out we won't accept you." I suggest everyone to boycott the place and tell your friends never to stay here..because though its cheap its like a cheap [--] motel its dirty, smelly and old. It is better to spend your money elsewhere where the people managing the place are polite and the place clean.
To all asians out there don't even consider it, your better off staying at backpackers if you want a cheap place.

Stayed at Drakes apartments for 4 days during February and we had the worse experience ever! The rooms are old and needs refurbishment, the cars needs repairing and the service was terrible. If you are lucky enough to deal with the owner of the property Mr B Drakes then be prepared for the most arrogant and obnoxiuos person you have ever met. Drakes apartments make visitors feel unwelcome! You better off staying in a caravan park!
