Normally I'm pretty good at researching great places to stay, but I made a misstep here. There was nothing wrong per se with the The Richardson - service, cleanliness, amenities and room aspect were adequate. However it is not a 'design' hotel, nor would I call it a 5 star hotel. I say dated in my review because this is...

My husband and I escaped to the Richardson Hotel for 2 wonderful nights. Situated in West Perth and easy walking to restaurants and cafes with free bus transportation to the CBD and surrounds. The hotel has a quiet luxurious feel with quality throughout and certainly lives up to its reputation. Dining at their Opus Restaurant was truly fine dining with...

Luxury retreat for a special my birthday special treat. A getaway time for us to spend time together. It also enabled us to go shopping in the main shopping area of Perth Centre. Being such a central location it also allowed us to discover some of the history of the West Perth area.

I stayed here on business recently and really enjoyed it. I would definitely stay here again. My room was very nice and included a bath as well as a shower (which I like because at the end of a long hard day sometimes you want a soak in a bath). I ate breakfast in the Conservatory and had dinner both...

We found this gem of a hotel online and enjoyed every aspect of our stay there. The room was huge, decorated nicely, and very comfortable. The staff were always very friendly, the breakfast delicious, and the price was very reasonable. It was a bit out of the downtown area but the free, frequently running Cat buses made it an easy...

We spent 2 lovely nights recently at The Richardson celebrating our Wedding Anniversary, & we couldn't have been happier with our choice. Very comfortable clean & spacious room, enjoyable food & drinks at the bar, & on Sunday we treated ourselves to a High Tea in the Opus Restaurant. Absolutely delicious. Very helpful & friendly staff too.

Lovely staff; hugely helpful and welcoming, and very comfortable and spacious accommodation. Two small gripes: 1. Airport transfer was exhorbitant and 2. Spa was fully booked a whole week in advance. Otherwise, great.

Due to renovations we spent five weeks at the Richardson in our own city. Faultless is how I would describe it. A lot of thought has gone into making it as comfortable and convenient as possible. The staff were particularly thoughtful. Food and room service were excellent. I was a little sorry to leave!

It is nice having guests stay for long periods of time as it gives us time to get to know them. Hopefully you can visit us again, even if it is only for Dinner at Opus?
