We had a brief stay at the Richardson during our whistle-stop tour of Australia. It's a beautiful hotel, with a warm welcome from the pleasant helpful staff. Although it is in a quiet suburban area, the stop for the hop on/off bus which took us into Perth is only about 300 yards away. A very enjoyable stay, many thanks.

I had the pleasure of staying at The Richardson due to a lack of availability at the hotel I was supposed to be accommodated in with fellow business acquaintances. I was booked in the classic room. The customer service was exceptional, the staff were very friendly, the room service was superb, just a wonderful stay overall. Nespresso coffee machine, coffee... More

We stayed here for our wedding anniversary and it was wonderful from the moment we checked in. We stayed over Easter long weekend so the hotel was fairly quiet. We were upgraded to a suite. The hotel staff were very helpful and friendly walking us up to the room and making sure we knew about all facilities. We also received... More

I am still amazed that this hotel is considered no 1 in Perth. There is nothing wrong with the hotel, but the vibe is a little old fashioned. It has been renovated in the 90s with large rooms and balconies, and the clientele in the breakfast room around 10 am was well in its 60s. I believe that the rest... More

I appreciate that you have taken the time to write your review. Unfortunately you have made a number of completely wrong statements regarding The Richardson. The Hotel is purpose built and opened in November 2006 ( not "Renovated in the 90's" ). The location is certainly not "Industrial" as you state, we are 400 meters from Kings Park and Botanical...

I really really like this hotel. Very well located for offices in Perth and the CBD for that matter, this hotel offers very nice rooms and service. There is a fabulous restaurant, a very comfortable bed (that I struggled out of for an early start) and a very well stocked minibar to enjoy. I'm really delighted to know there is... More

Made a latish booking for a room for Saturday night to celebrate a special wedding anniversary. Wonderful welcome from the reception staff. Spacious room with everything we needed and the bonus of a very good sized balcony. Very quiet setting but handy for Subiaco and also convenient for the CAT bus to the city.

Had a wonderful check in experience and they are very child friendly. The spa rooms were amazing and exactly what I was after. Some time away and to be able to sit back and relax. A little pricey but I found the service to be as expected.

When we first arrived at the hotel, I was alarmed at the fact that it was in such a quiet, residential area of town. The hotel was very small. A young girl came out to greet us (she was from reception), and effortlessly wheeled our bags into the hotel. They asked us to wait in a small lounge with refreshments,... More

We stayed here twice in February - and what a delight. The hotel is tucked away in a leafy neighbourhood, easy walking distance from downtown. Our room was large, with a separate sitting area and kitchen area (not a full kitchen but everything for coffee, tea and snacks). It had a beautiful balcony facing west where we could have a...
