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...

This boutique hotel is tucked away in a primarily residential area just a short walk from Kings Park and a 15 minute walk to the CBD. If you don't want to walk you can get one of the city's free buses. The nightlife of Subiaco is about a 20 minute walk away. First impressions on arrival were good. The hotel... More

From the moment we arrived the staff at The Richardson provided outstanding service and made the stay special. Lovely spacious rooms, excellent spa facilities and a fantastic meal at the Opus restaurant rounded out the full package at this fine establishment.

We spent two nights at the Richardson and absolutely loved it. We appreciated the quite, West Perth location. The staff was wonderful; helping us immediately with dinner reservations and other transportation related issues. Our suite was lovely. We enjoyed the large balcony, even though we did not have a great view. We also loved the Internet router in our room... More

Antiseptic location. Nothing of interest in close walking distance. Very expensive. The Sofitel Wentworth in Sydney, and the Intercontinental in Melbourne are much nicer, in interesting areas, and much cheaper. Stay in Scarborough. This is hugely expensive, the room service menu is dull, expensive and underwhelming. Staff are bored and unhelpful. This would struggle to get four stars in any... More
