I was invited to Perth to attend a business meeting and was looking forward to having a good sleep after the long flight to get there. However what I got was one of the worst rooms I have ever stayed in and as there was an event on in town for the same nights, I had no option but to... More

You can always tell a hotel's standard by the staff at reception - the girl looked depressed and like she was counting down the minutes until she could get out of there - couldn't say I blame her. I could not find anything positive about this place at all. Parking is $30 overnight and it's the dodgiest parking place. Wifi... More

Staff friendliness : Not so friendly. The old man gave us headache and heartache. The chinese-look lady not very helpful. However, the room is comfortable. Wifi is not free. You have to pay for a limited time and limited to one user per room (if am not mistaken) . Car park will cost you $30AUD per day per bay. Not... More

Stayed at this hotel over the Christmas & News Year holidays. It might not be the most up market hotel in Perth but we had a clean room, friendly staff and any request was not a problem. I would stay there again as the location to Perth was great.

Very old hotel needs upgrading, don't know how it can be called the NEW Esplanade? Parking is a rip off, wifi is a rip off, pillows were so uncomfortable and our room could hear the elevator banging all night. Our room also overlooked the bin in the carpark. Staff not friendly, but room was clean and nice thick towels were... More

I have regrettably stayed at this hotel twice now, for the same reason that it even still exists...location. Side note: Once Elizabeth Quay is complete this place will have the most epic view; I truly hope it's under new management by then. It is a very old and worn out hotel. It has a musty smell throughout, and is a... More

A very tired hotel . Did not bother with eating in, so will not comment on the food service . Rooms tidy, room service good. Room AC adequate , entrance doors to rooms chipped and in bad repair. No opening widows. Large development opposite hotel spoils vista. The hotel looks out of kilter with its nieghbourhood. Overpriced

This is a very old hotel which needs a lot of work! The ACs are horrible and the thermostats in the rooms are disabled which means the temperature is controlled centrally! We complained about our AC not working and were told it would be fixed the next day. As compensation they offered us bigger rooms! This did not help as... More

The good location friendly staff The bad terrible bed Stayed two separate nights recently in two different rooms. Probably the worst mattresses we have slept on in a hotel. Very hard mattress and lumpy. Can feel inner springs with your hand.

A bad 70's joke of a place that has been painted and little else. The fixtures and fittings may be even older. They remind me of stuff that looked old to me when I was a kid. There's a reason it is so much cheaper. TV reception is fine as long as you only want channels 9 and 10. If... More
