“Good location”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2005

It's an old building, but the rooms are clean. Staff are very friendly.The only complaint I have was that one of our beds was a little soft - springs wearing out.
Overall, a good place to stay if you don't want to spend too much.

We were having our vacation at Perth and chose The New Esplanade for our accommodation. When we arrived past midnight, we were not greeted by the staff on duty and instead, he handled our check-in with a terribly unfriendly approach.

To make things worse, we were given a big surprise on the next early morning - the building next to our hotel started renovation and there were heavy knocking and drilling as early as 7am. I think the hotel should actually mention that there is renovation work going on at the next building on their website. Other hotels do that.

There is a "Nite Cruiser" bus picking passengers up on late nights during the weekends and there is a bus-stop outside the hotel for this bus. Some passengers get drunk and as they wait for the bus to arrive, they scream and make a lot of noise in the middle of the night, and it can be very loud.

Last but not least, the bed covers are stained and the toilet taps have grime all around them.

We will not recommend this hotel to anybody.

Not sure what to expect when 1st arrived here at 1am after a 24 hour flight but the staff were incredibly welcoming. Rooms were very large with two huge double beds and a big bathroom. Woke up in the morning, opened the curtains to find the most fantastic view over the Swan River. The centre of Perth is very small so everything was in easy walking distance of the hotel. Main train station about a 10 minute walk so easy to get to places like Cottesloe Beach and Fremantle. Very reasonable rates.
