“A welcoming place to stay”
Reviewed 10 September 2012

I had to work in Perth for a few days and sought something close to where I worked, but close enough to the city for my wife to shop or go to Kings Park.

I used to stay at the Duxton or the Chifley, but that was a few years ago. Perth accommodation at present (September 2012) is over 80% occupancy - meaning prices are high regardless - and some places have trebled or quadrupled their rates for the same sort of accommodation in in other cities.

Sullivans seemed a happy medium - not too astronomical in price for our stay (4 nights) - and close to most things.

The staff were very welcoming and helpful on arrival. Things were pointed out, nothing seemed to much trouble, we had free WiFi, and the room, although compact, was comfortable and very clean. Our bathroom light blew on the first night, and was changed within 5 minutes by Marissa (who had to manage the desk as well).

The location is very good - the free Blue CAT bus has a stop right outside the hotel and runs frequently - though less so on weekends. Kings Park is behind the hotel - admittedly a climb up some frighteningly long stairs. If taxis are your choice Sullivans do have a free phone to call one (but I'm not too pleased with the taxis, as we had trouble getting one more often than not. Hmmmm)

Food choices are very good. The continental breakfast is excellent. Good quality cereal, fruit (fresh & stewed), juices, cold meats & cheese, scones, jams, toast, coffee, teas (big selection). A nice view. For $15 its much better value than most places. We had dinner in a couple of times too - the choice was quite good, food good, and the prices not over the top.

The room we had was fine. A little small, but clean & functional. The air conditioner could do with an update - a little noisy. Road noise is a problem as you are on Mounts Bay Road with everyone going in/out of the city at peak hour. Close your window (thats rare), put in some ear plugs and its fine.

Sullivans makes up for the Perth price premium with excellent service and attention to detail.

Location! Location! Location! Price! Price! Price! Thoroughly enjoyed my stay at Sullivans. Close to all the great locations - Barrack Jetty, next door to Kings Park, adjacent to the river, just the right distance from the City centre, bus stop right outside. Service could not be faulted and prices for meals are well priced compared to similar hotels I have stayed at, at home is Australia and abroad. Look no further.

I have stayed 3 nights in this hotel. The hotel is a bit dated and the room is small but tidy and clean. It is on the fringe of the CBD and takes about 20 minutes to walk to the city. Free CAT bus is available in front of the hotel which is handy, but don't trust the bus time table. Kings park is just at the back of the hotel and is very worthwhile to go. The hotel is sitting on a busy road. It is quite noisy in the day time but OK in the evening. In consideration of the expensive hotels in Perth, this one is value for money if you don't demand too much.

Room Tip: Choose a room at the back to avoid noise from the main road

Great location just inside the Perth CBD Free Transit Zone. Restaurant is OK but a bit expensive for the quality and extent of the menu. Small bar but OK while waiting for friends to go out or have a meal in the restaurant.
If you get the "Early Bird" rate which can be as little as $81 per night for a Queen bed room - exceptional value for money. Other rates are expensive and would definitely encourage me to go elsewhere.
Manager (Marco) is great and staff very helpful.
I have stayed here several times on both business by myself and leisure with my family. I willprobably stay here again.

Room Tip: Early bird rate is the only way to go.
