I loved this place. I needed a place to stay in Perth and there was no room at my sister's place, and I wanted somewhere quiet and peaceful, especially at night. Most of the places around the city and the big hotels are too noisy and impersonal for me. Trigg Retreat was perfect.
The room itself was much nicer than home and provided amenities better than I expected. The bed was firm and even, all linen was spotless, and they were more than generous with the towels and facewashers - I could leave the ones I brought from home in my bag. There was a huge walk in closet, with a fridge and coffee making facilites as well as a shared lounge room with more coffee making facilities and a small supply of munchies.
Sue managed to sort out every problem including my much later than planned arrival (roadworks on the main road is my excuse). And anything I wanted, all I needed to do was ask. I also liked her recommendations for local cafes and places to visit.
I had my favourite breakfast every morning - I'm a sucker for croissants and honey and fresh coffee. Don't get that at home either. Not to mention the beautiful indoor-outdoor eating area.
Best of all it was a quiet escape from the family wedding stresses. And I could come back any time I wanted for a nanna nap and freshen up - though I did make sure I let Sue know when I thought I would want to do that so she could time the room cleaning to suit.
And waking up on Sydney time, I had a lovely walk in the early morning along the esplanades above Trigg Beach and if I'd been a bit keener, we were an easy walk to Mettams pool, a popular and sheltered swimming spot. And not far from the surf beaches. Our host Sue can provide facilities for washing and storing your surf board too.
I had lunch at nearby Soda Cafe, which was delicious. Not sure they understand the value of local produce to a visitor, with ingredients like Gold Coast (QLD) Prawns on the menu.
All the places I needed to go were easy to access by car from Trigg Retreat, including the car hire (Bayswater), Floreat Beach, Subiaco and Cottesloe. Trigg Retreat also had room for off street parking.
At Trigg Retreat the bedrooms are upstairs, and the shower in the room I was in, has quite a big step in, so you need to be able to step up comfortably to stay here.
I'd love to stay here next time I visit Perth, even if there is room at my sister's.
