We decided to go on a last minute holiday to perth and were left with only a few accomodation options (as it was the night before that we booked). Kings hotel perth and aarons hotel perth were our only other options and from the reviews and the pictures they looked very substandard (and were charging alot more than riverview on mount). Riverview on mount was in a really good location- literally we walked to the Marina (where all the tours leave from) in the city centre in under 20mins (and that was during a 42 degree heat wave- so am assuming it would be quicker if not that hot!) Is also very close to walk from the Blue CAT bus (the city runs 3 free buses to explore the city which also comes in handy.
Parking at the hotel is limited maybe only 20 spots so first in gets a spot, but there is lots of street parking which outside the hours of 8am to 6pm & all day sunday is unlimited parking. During work hours as above it's only 1 hour limited for free but you cannot stay longer.
The hotel is right next to Kings Park botanic Gardens which is really lovely to walk through.
The staff were very friendly and helpful, but please be aware that they only service the rooms once during a 7 night stay. Therefore if you run out of anything or need new towels you would need to ask at reception which is only open 7am -7pm. Not a big drama but good to be aware of.
We booked the deluxe long stay option which is the same as the deluxe room, but with no water views (for stays of 4 nights or more). We were upgraded to the waterview apartment as the hotel was quite empty on the days that we stayed.
The hotel from the outside looked quite old at the back, but the rooms were very nicely renovated- see photos.
As some other reviewers have said the price is a bit expensive, but you cannot really compare Perth accomodation to Sydney for example- in Sydney for $200 you get a 5 star hotel, but this is not the case in Perth and all hotels are over priced maybe due to the location and mining industries they can charge these amounts. We stayed in the deluxe long stay for 5 nights and total came to $708 so about $140 per night which I found to be very well priced for your location and accomodation type.
Just a warning about their really cheap rooms- our travel agent said to us that the hotel doesn't reccomend people stay in their really cheap rooms unless they have stayed there before and know what they are getting as I believe they are really small and really only suitable for a stay overnight to continue on your way the next day. Just a tip we found out.
Overall we were very happy with this hotel and would stay here again!
