I stayed here with my wife for one night in September 2016. It was a hot day on arrival and I decided to cool off, but when I took a look at the pool I changed my mind. It was covered with leaves, and there seemed to be some sort of oil like scum on the surface. The area around...

Perth, Australia

Courtyard Hotel is located in Arcadia, close to UP and Hatfield and with easy access to the city and major arterial roads. A beautifully restored old Governors Mansion, great staff, very good rooms in a secure complex with free parking. Happy hour with free drinks and nibbles in the evening. Not the cheapest hotel but worth that bit extra.
