My experience here was an emergency. I needed a place to stay, even though I actually lived in Perth.
For those that don't remember the big hail storm on 22 March 2010, let me précis this moment. My house and car were devastated by a massive, freak hail storm. In fact, my house was condemned by the storm. Fortunately for me, the Norfolk Hotel was open and accommodating.
I would have been glad for a bed anywhere, but the Norfolk Hotel had two rooms left and I have to say I was really, really surprised. Sure, it isn't a normal hotel. It is where backpackers and budget travellers would gravitate towards. The rooms were huge and clean, but nothing special, but I really enjoyed being there.
As with many "Hotels" in Western Australia, most know this place as a vibrant and fun place to go for a drink, not to stay. In a British tradition, this would be an "Inn" with a nice bar below.
I would definitely stay here if I had to. Notice the words, "had to". For location and vibe and budget, and for the young at heart and expedition minded, go for it. A good, comfortable stay and, yes, I would stay there again....if I had to.
