I was in Perth on business and normally stay in the city. This is the first time I have stayed in a B&B 15kms outside of the city.
My two colleagues and I were given 3 rooms situated close to each other.
I was given the spa room which meant that the bathroom was huge as it had a jacuzzi inside in addition to the normal shower facilities. It was a good size bigger than the bedroom which had a queen bed and a little space to walk around. As the majority of my room was occupied by a queen bed, it did not have enough space for a writing desk to work.
The two rooms my colleagues had were of a more proportional size with lots of space surrounding their beds and their rooms had nice little desks for working on the laptop. However, their bathrooms were on the smaller side.
Our three bedrooms led to a common pantry area with a fridge and a kettle. Tea, coffee and biscuits were provided gratis. Chilled drinks in the fridge had to be paid for.
The beds were excellent and we all slept well during the 4 nights we were there.
Wifi signal strength in my spa room was fine. However, my colleagues found that the signal in their rooms was weak but usable.
All our rooms were super clean, well kept and tidied up each day.
A reasonable large continental breakfast is provided everyday at 730AM. Should you be lactose intolerant, you would be well advised to either purchase your own lactose-free milk, or arrange with the hosts for it to be provided ahead of your stay.
Check in times are limited to after 330PM. Do bear this in mind if you are arriving early, it's best to inform the B&B ahead of time. Unfortunately for us, we arrived an hour early due to tailwinds on our flight but were not able to check in until 330PM. Thus we had to spend an hour driving around Perth to kill some time.
Traffic into the city from 730AM to 9AM is heavy and we were stuck on the freeway for more than 45 mins.
If you're looking for a quiet, comfortable place away from the city, or if you're visiting businesses around Malaga, you may consider this place an option.
We had a pleasant stay here.
