      Individual guest reviews

      • Location was very good, lovely relaxing atmosphere and friendly staff were helpful, there’s FREE Internet in the lobby, was really nice. The room was large and the receptionist [at that time] was a charming man couldn't do enough for you.

        Not a cheap hotel, windows were filthy.

      • Good price n location, across the road is Red CAT bus stop you can ride for free in CBD,Perth and the outside of this hotel is amazing. Government rates are also available and the staff all seemed to be friendly and helpfull. The rooms are an adequate size, and the showers are huge, the adjoining restaurant is very nice.

        Decor and bedding were extremely dated.
