“Comfortable and clean in all five rooms”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2013

We had five double rooms as singles and they were, contrary to some rather worrying reviews on here, clean and comfortable. Staff were friendly and helpful, especially in the dining room for dinner and breakfast. Dinner was fine, though the fish pie had obviously been under the hot lamps too long as it was a little dried up. Crab cake was fine for starter.

I sometimes get put off by trip advisor comments and this hotel has a lot of different comments. We found it a typical Best Western, both clean and keen. It is a system that works, the individual owners get the support of a national network, but have to work for the right to be a part of it. Generally, we consumers benefit. I was worried about the smell of chlorine supposedly obvious when we walked in but not a trace of it. You would have been hard put to know there was a health club on the premises. It was a Saturday night and the hotel was quite full, but I slept like an undisturbed log!

Stayed for four nights for an event in city, the room was provided by event organiser, otherwise we might have stayed somewhere else. It's ok but the bedrooms are relatively small and they and the hotel are in need of a makeover with brighter colours. There seems to be only one small lift and the stairs are narrow . If you stay a few nights you get used to the layout and decor, but it still feels dated in its character. The staff are good and make the stay worthwhile, plus it's a few minutes walk from the city centre, railway station etc, parking is limited but there is pay and display parking nearby.

I booked this as a last minute stop over, the car park is over the road and wasn't spotted in the dark, the whole hotel stank of chlorine, the hotel needed a major refurbishment. I didn't use the bar but had a look in and it looked very tired.

I think if I was needing to stay in Perth again I would check the alternatives before making a reservation.

Stayed in this hotel for a work conference. First impressions - an overwhelming stench of bleach. There is a pool onsite so assumed this was the source, but not a great smell to greet you when you first open the doors. Overall, this hotel isn't too bad in many respects - it was clean, comfortable if very dated with old, tatty furniture, carpets and decor, and the food was pretty good and came in large portions. They lose a point for service, which was not great, especially from one particular waitress at dinner, for whom everything, including taking our order, was simply too much trouble. Other staff couldn't have been nicer so I'm sorry to mark them down, but this waitress was absolutely awful.

However, I've given a 'poor' rating mainly due to the noise - not traffic or street noise, despite the very central location, but the floors, which were all carpeted as far as I could see. I appreciate it is an old building, and clearly hasn't had an upgrade for many years, but to be woken several times during the night when anyone moved, whether in adjacent rooms, on the floor above, in the corridor, or in fact anywhere else in the hotel, was simply awful. I was unlucky in that the people in the room directly above mine appeared to get up for a game of basketball at 5.15am, and continued play until about 7am, by which time I had at least finished my book. The level of noise cannot be exaggerated. I am not a light sleeper and tend to drop off easily, but was constantly woken up and finally kept awake by the constant squeaking and groaning of floorboards combined with the thuds of footfalls. This was also very apparent during our conference in the otherwise nice meeting room - whenever someone in the room above moved, the entire ceiling reverberated with squeaks and groans more than loud enough to drown out the speaker.

If you are an extremely heavy sleeper, or looking for somewhere to crash after a night out rather than relax, or even just after a reasonable dinner (as long as you're luckier than we were with the waiting staff) then this might be the place for you. However I would recommend against it if you have any requirement for sleep or to be able to hear someone speak without shouting.

Room Tip: If you must stay here, get a room on the top floor if you want any sleep!

I had a very short overnight stay in the Queens. The staff are excellent, friendly, welcoming and helpful. The food was good, a quick late sandwich in the room was excellent and no fuss. The breakfast was great the next morning, again served by excellent staff. The only thing that lets the hotel down is the decor, it is very tired and badly needs updating.

Had a short stay whilst attending a conference in the City. An amazing huge bed was main plus feature and was very comfortable. The location near the Railway and Bus Station's meant the bar had many passing customers. We ate in the bar the evening of our arrival and found the "Burger of the Day"and a drink at the bar very pleasant though on the expensive side. Nearby there are many take away and some restaurants. Breakfast on the Sat. was surprisingly rushed having only sat down with cereal, the cooked meal I'd ordered a few minutes earlier arrived, surprisingly ahead of the toast. This led be to believe everything was pre-cooked. It might just be too hard to train their staff to relax a little at the weekend.

Positives:
The hotel is in a really central location, only about 5mins max. to the town centre on foot.

The afternoon reception person was very friendly and helpful.

The pool area was nice (didn't use the gym, but it looked like it had quite a few machines to choose from).


Negatives:
The room I had was just so used and dated, it was quite a dissapointment. I had read reviews on here before booking and some said the same thing, but after having had a look on the hotels website, I thought the rooms looked nice - they are definatly not all like they are on their website!
I don't know if I just got one that hadn't been done up yet, but think old youth hostel, or halls of residence, and that was what I had.
The furniture was really old with chips on the edges, and the inside of the bath was all flaking away. Shame.

If use of the pool/sauna area hadn't been included in the price, I would have been pretty annoyed, but because of that, and the closeness to town, it was ok.
If I ever stay again though, I'm going to have to ask for a better room!
