“Ok for the price”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 February 2012

I was dreading about staying at this hotel after reading all the negative reviews on this site. I was presently surprised ( albeit my expectations we very low). My sheets, towels and room was clean. My shower was good - looked like a new shower head and the room was spacious. The lift from the carpark was working. The place was a bit run down - older bathroom, carpets worn and paint peeling, but it is OK if you are just after a bed and shower for a night or two. Perth is very expensive for accommodation, and I guess you get what you pay for. Don't expect too much from this hotel and you will be alright.

Stayed February 2012, travelled on business

1st time to Perth; reception staff not very helpful, not told about paid parking only at time of booking then having to walk through the car park to reception to be able to access room. Room size okay but very average, carpets worn, shower sprayed water everywhere but on you. But view was good.

Visited last year and remember this as the worst hotel I have stayed in (and there are many). Except the view which is fabulous! Staff rude and disinterested. Rooms cheap and tired. Decor awful. Don't bother.

Room Tip: Up high overlooking the river, so if you have to you can at least get the view

Staff at reception was combative & rude. Hotel rate does not include parking (will cost an additional AUD30). I will never return.

Where do I start with this supposed hotel? First arrived after travelling a LONG way to be told we would have to pay $30 to park our car. This is a total rip off as other 5 star hotels in Perth either don't charge or charge below 20 dollars. The lobby outside the hotel room smelt so bad, damp and musty and very dirty. Our room wasnt much better. The bathroom was filthy and the sheets had other peopls pubic hair all over them!! I mean, come on, there is just no excuse for that. The room it's self was tired and dirty and the TV had 3 channels. Our shower did not work and the water was scalding hot that came out the taps. The hotel is a great place to stay if all you want washed is YOUR FEET! Total disgrace, I want my money back!

Room Tip: Dont stay here!
