My partner & I checked into this beautiful hotel for our 10 year anniversary. We hoped for a quiet, relaxing inner-city getaway, away from the hustle and bustle of life- we were not disappointed. Check-in was uncomplicated and we found the staff very friendly and welcoming. The room, a one bedroom suite, which was fitted out in a classic timeless... More

I had a fantastic stay at the Richardson, and one which far exceeded my expectations. As some have noted, the decor is not to everyone's taste - although it doesn't feel shabby or dated, and is in pristine condition, it does have a late-90s-luxe thing going, which is not entirely to my taste. Nonetheless, the rooms are cosy, warm, spacious... More

We came back after 12 months for the winter package and as expected this boutique hotel never disappoints. Huge rooms which includes a sitting room separate from the main bedroom, modern and clean, has a small built in kitchen if you wish to use, but with a quality restaurant available I would see no reason why you would, staff are...

We stayed at the Richardson on our wedding night, as a place to relax and unwind and take everything in the first day as a married couple.

This is a very well presented smaller hotel about 2 km west of the main Perth CBD. They try very hard to tick every box and cover off every minor detail in terms of the presentation of the rooms and the service provided. Great points - large comfortable one bedroom suites (fell asleep on the couch), nice professional staff, terrific... More

Quite a small and pretty ordinary room for the money I thought (perhaps I should have paid more) but great service and excellent touches like the quality toiletries etc. Fabulous front of house staff.

The hotel is luxurious and enjoyed by the stars, but the great service as well as its location makes it a place to go for in Perth. We were able to walk to the lovely little shops in the surrounding neighborhoods and were pointed to a good Italian restaurant nearby. The massage treatment also gave a relaxed touch to our... More

We had heard good things about this boutique hotel - in a town sorely lacking this option. The Richardson is in the West Perth business district but close to King Park, and in a quite location. Service is excellent - almost faultless, however the decor suffers from the most beige 1990s international business style- all marble, beige fabrics and beech... More
