The hotel was well presented and staff were helpful. The suite was clean and quiet due to its location within the hotel the location of the hotel itself is very central to the bars and restaurants in the centre but that won't be necessary as the restaurant in the hotel provides some fantastic meals which I cannot recommend highly enough....

Best in Perth so far. I've been traveling to Perth for work regularly every few months for coming up to 20 years now. Most hotels are poor so I stay in chain hotels for consistency. This time I couldn't get a room so took a chance here. Very comfortable, nicely furnished and comfortable bed. Quiet with lovely river view. Good... More
