This hotel is in a great location in the centre of Perth. It is very close to the concert hall, shops and some really nice restaurants. It is also right on the banks of the River Tay, so the views are lovely. Despite its central location, the hotel is nice and quiet.
Inside, the lobby and bar area are rather dated, but they do have a certain old world charm about them. Reception and bar staff were friendly and helpful.
The first room we were given was the Chinese Suite, which was very 'interesting'! The decor was like a really tacky Chinese restaurant with lots of shiny fabric, fans on the wall and large red chinese lanterns. It was also very dark, in part because of the decor but also because the only view was of a wall!
My husband went back to reception to ask if we could change rooms. This was no problem, and the receptionist arranged for us to be moved to the Honeymoon Suite, which was absolutely beautiful. This room was large, bright and airy with lovely views of the Tay. The room had obviously been quite recently redecorated: it was very much in keeping with the traditional style of the hotel, but with a modern twist. Lovely. And the bed and pillows were so comfy. As an added bonus, when we checked out it turned out that the honeymoon suite was cheaper than the Chinese suite!
If you get bored of walking around the city, the hotel is well located for exploring the beautiful surrounding countryside including Scone Palace which is about a 5 minute drive away.
