The Melbourne Hotel was a great find. We had a spacious room with french doors opening onto an iconic wide balcony, which would have been perfect on a summer evening for a pre - dinner drink, but not in the middle of winter. Staff were very helpful and pleasant. There is an arrangement with a near-by Wilson car park that... More

We stayed here at the top end of Perth to be close to Rigbys Bar. (Good option for walking to Convention Centre or Perth Arena too) Plenty of old world heritage charm like the exterior balcony, the older style lift and foyer staircase entry area. We chose a cheaper room (102) which had no window but it wasn't an issue... More

Better than you might expect but don't get your hopes up. Location is fine but the old pub hotel style, worn and tired appearance are what you get for the price in Perth. Wifi worked well though so that's a bonus and it was quiet enough. No minibar but generous free coffee making facilities.

We really enjoyed our stay at The Melbourne Hotel. After reading other reviews, we paid a little extra for a superior balcony room and weren't disappointed. We had read some previous reviews about rooms without windows etc so we took advice offered and paid a little extra.....and we felt it was still a good price. The room was very clean... More

I was excited by the prospect of a lovely old hotel in the middle of Perth city as a change from the normal box rooms on offer. The exterior of the building is gorgeous and maintains many of the original Victorian features including a wrap around veranda on the 1st floor with iron lacing. The entrance to the reception area...

This was our second stay at The Melbourne. The room was nicely decorated with french doors leading onto the balcony, where we shared a bottle of champagne for our wedding anniversary. The hotel was central to the restaurant we were going to and Perth city. The bathroom and ammenities were clean and functional. The bed was made up of two... More

Clearly most reviews here are based on the location - which is probably fine in the week but nothing special on Sunday. This hotel can be best described as a motel or student accommodation - I was put into a room with no windows at all and whilst clean, it felt so unhomely and dead that I couldn't face ordering...

The location is brilliant especially if you want to enjoy the city and the many bars and cafes etc. The price is very good however the rooms, and really the whole place, is just a bit tired. Its a shame as it is such a beautiful old hotel and could be so nice with a bit of TLC. I still... More

I have been travelling to Perth for nearly twenty years. This is a great find which was suggested to be by a local. It is excellent value for money, well located and helpful and friendly staff. It is an old pub from the 1800s but the rooms have been refurbished to provide comfortable modern accommodation but inside an historic building.... More

This was the first hotel we stayed at during our visit to Perth. The hotel looks impressive and grand on the outside. It's centrally located at Hay Street and opposite a free CAT bus stop.
