This is on older style hotel (1980's) but its clean and the rooms are big. The old style atrium with the plants is an interesting feature. good bar and restaurant the pool needs updating but its good value for money and in the heart of the city. You can walk anywhere in the city. air-conditioning is good and really required...

I can't remember the name of the restaurant we visited at this Hotel but I certainly remember the meals. My daughter and I dined there early this month and were very disappointed. I ordered an eye fillet and was presented with a rib fillet. It was much bigger than an eye fillet and there were big sections of tough gristle...

I had to stay at the Novotel Perth for business due to an error by our reception not booking my preferred accommodation.

The rating I have given is seriously influenced by the staff, their attitude and performance if I rated it on the hotel alone it would likely deserve a poor to terrible rating. The hotel is situated on the Esplanade central to CBD and Waterfront a great location, the staff were excellent and helpful especially as it was Christmas New Years...

I have stayed several times at this motel and always the service is excellent with good facilities, location and friendly and helpful staff. Being opposite the esplanade park with view of the harbor and one block from Mitchell Street it makes everything easily accessible.

This is a great, well located, property clearly on the edge of a major upgrade. In the meantime...in the wet season...its a home away from home with great staff and a great price. Good job team.
