Thank you for taking the time to write a review of your recent stay with us at the Perth Parkside Inn & Spa. We are happy to hear you enjoyed your time here, and that our staff made yo feel welcome. We feel very fortunate to be located in downtown Perth, with Stewart Park in our backyard. We look forward to seeing you again soon.
I'll start with the good. The location is excellent if you want to walk around downtown Perth. It's a fairly new hotel so it's clean and welcoming. In general the staff were excellent, very friendly and very helpful.
Entering the double queen room for the first time left us with good first impressions. Luckily we'd booked a room overlooking the park so the view was very pretty. The bathroom was very clean, much cleaner than hotels that charge a heck of a lot more for a room in Canada. The good vibes were dampened a touch when we realised that the base used for the beds was a series of aluminium (I think) sheets that formed a box. Everytime someone shifted position on the bed, the metal sheets flexed and made an awful noise. Not surprisingly this woke us up during the night whenever any moved.
The pool is a bit small but it's clean (I seem to changing tenses here) and although the temperature was a touch on the cold side, it wasn't uncomfortable so and it was fine once our bodies adapted. The pool was ruined for us as other guests were doing flips and cannon balls, which meant there was no safe space for anyone else to swim as the pool is so small. So I gave up. The hot tub was supposedly under maintenance and colder than usual but the temperature was perfectly fine for me, so perhaps they fixed it and forgot to remove the notice. The facilities (changing room and bathrooms) on the pool's level were wonderfully clean.
We ate in the restaurant and the food was excellent. It's an Italian menu so there are lots of pasta dishes to choose from. We had the Fettucini Alfredo, Fettucini Funghi and Canneloni and we all loved our meals. The waiter was charming and very helpful but he seemed to have a problem with the parmesan cheese grater and left a trail of grated cheese wherever he went, including on our plates, our table, the floor and us! No matter, the food was enjoyable. Our only gripe was that the cutlery and plates should have been cleaner.
I've covered the beds and otherwise the room was very comfortable. Like all hotels the A/C - heater is loud but we switched it off as we didn't need to use it. I wish hotels could find a quieter way to heat and cool the rooms.
Our stay included complimentary breakfasts for all three of us. And here's where things fell apart. We ordered two cooked breakfasts and the waffles. The eggs were cold and the potatoes were vastly undercooked on both meals. We could only eat the sausage and toast. The waffle was probably the kind you can buy in Loblaws and it was mildly warm and chewy. It looked like several other guests didn't eat all of their breakfasts so perhaps there was a bigger issue than just our meal.
The young ladies working in the restaurant were polite and helpful but they appeared to struggle with the workload. Perhaps an extra staff member should be on hand during busy periods or a senior member to help organise the restaurant. It took a long time to get our food and we heard someone complain that they were served food later than others who arrived after them. Again, the cutlery, plates, glasses and cups should have been cleaner.
If the Parkside resolve their kitchen issues (cleanliness, breakfast and staffing) and replace their bed bases with something quieter, then I would wholeheartedly recommend the hotel. It's a very pleasant, clean and very friendly oasis in the middle of Perth. Without these improvements I think I would only return knowing I wouldn't have a great sleep and that I would want to eat breakfast elsewhere.
We didn't use the spa or the salon.
Note - I rated this stay as 3* but really I would place it at 3.5* if I could. I really want to make it a 4* but I can't because of the breakfast experience and the noisy beds. Without these two issues it would be a definite 4*, perhaps even 4.5*
