Thanks to the team at the palace for the lovely food. We ate there at least 3 times a week whilst recently posted to Kal on business. The team are warm, inviting and friendly. And the Voyager red wine helped.....

I stayed at the Palace Hotel for one night only (4 May, 2014). I had booked in advance and took the bus from Esperance (see my separate reviews of Esperance). Due to my late arrival, the main reception was already closed and the paperwork was done upstairs in the restaurant. Check-in was friendly and quick. I don't remember my room... More

Well I've rated this 2 star because it was not what i wanted and couldn't pick up on it from any reviews, your reading this so here's my take. I had a balcony room (but also booked a 2 bed suite for my daughter below - see details later) If you stay friday night and saturday night then there is... More

We chose this historic hotel because of its history and ambience ....however we did not know (and were not advised when I asked) that there was a nightclub within the hotel and hence we were kept awake from around 1am - 5am with loud, disrespectful revellers ...in the rooms either side of us and all the way up the hallways....

The Palace Hotel situated in the centre of historic Kalgoorlie was built in 1897. Yes, in parts the decor is a little tired but, we found our room to be warm, clean and comfortable. The en-suite was recently refurbished. . If you prefer a modern hotel do make sure you visit here for a delicious evening meal in The Balcony... More

We ate here for the second time recently and while the food was only average, wanted to say that the staff were marvellous. We hadn't been able to book an early table so they advised us to come and wait, and sure enough they managed to fit us in as soon as they could. The waiting staff were attentive and... More

I had friends visiting from Ireland and we took a road trip to kalgoorlie. We stayed at this hotel. The price was almost $300 a night and for that we got a very poor standard room. The service was appalling, in the fact that there wasn't any. I thought we would be staying in an old goldfields hotel, which I... More

Sitting on the balcony overlooking the main street (Hannan street) takes you back to the early days of Gold mining in Kal, as the locals refer to it. The street is long and extremely wide to allow the camel trains to turn arround. The Palace Hotel is one of the few remaining original hotels of Kal and your visit here... More

An iconic hotel, in a town full of beautiful old hotels. If no one's downstairs at reception, just go upstairs. Greeted by friendly staff, our booking made 8+ months ago was all ready and sorted within minutes. Beautiful room, plush carpet, king sized bed, all amenities and with an internal landing with connecting doors to the ensuite and also to... More
