The price I paid for a room and breakfast was fantastic. However, one needs to understand this is an old hotel, constructed to less than adequate building standards. Paper thin walls, no window in my room, neatly dressed staff members with a bad attitude. On the plus side, reasonably priced secure parking, tasty breakfast, clean bathroom. I would definitely stay...

big foyer with adjoining cafe with good lifts or stairs. If you pay budget as we did, the first surprise is the fake sea view at where the make believe window is. About forty odd rooms out of 94 have such a thing. Family rooms also have the same poster view. Room was large ans was the clean ensuite. Very...

This hotel is located very to the centre and even close to the area they hold the fringe festival. Rooms were very clean and beds comfy. The hotel also has the breakfast area and offered the standard hot to cold breakfast, its a self service thing, wouldn't say it was wow but the good high standard for a typical hotel...

Managed to get a great value last minute deal booking on the day. It was comfortable, clean and had everything we needed. Close to the city centre. Staff were friendly. It was SO much nicer staying here after staying at a near by hostel for nearly the same price!

Good location. Some points of observation: Firstly, I haven't realized that I booked a room without service, but it's was my fault. However, I think they could have replaced the toilet paper and the soap and removed the rubbish. Secondly, there wasn't window in the room, so it was difficulty to know how the weather was.

Good value for money. Has small rooms but, clean and tidy. In-house Asian restaurant and bar. Walking distance to free CAT buses, shops and an IGA supermarket. Can leave bags after checkout for $2 each or extend stay for $10 per hr.

My partner and I stayed here for a night after just arriving back from Interstate. We could not bear the thought of a long drive back down south so decided to book a hotel and rest. We booked great southern online and arrived at the Hotel shortly after, when we arrived at the Hotel we were able to park our...

We decided to stay in Perth, as my partner had bought tickets to fringe world shows on Saturday and Sunday nights. For location wise we booked the great Southern, we had stayed here before , under its old name. Location good, staff very friendly, on site parking at a minimal cost, we had breakfast included, great shower, mattress could do...

The Great Southern is well positioned near the top of the long row of shops, restaurants and bars on William Street. It’s therefore a great choice for those wishing to enjoy some evening action in Perth. Keep going a bit further south and you arrive at the attractions of the city centre. Rooms are spacious, clean and quiet. Essentially, you’ll...
