“Budget Accomodation that is clean and close to the city”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2012

I was sceptical when booking this as at $115 a night in Perth you can't expect anything much! But I was pleasantly surprised.
Yes it is dated but it was clean and in a good location no more than 3 km from the city centre. It is near Hyde Park and has buses on Bulwer Street and on nearby main roads.
If you have young children, request a room on a lower floor as it is a 3 story building.
There is no oven but there are cook tops and microwaves.

Room Tip: Go for the deluxe room if you want to be on the ground floor.

Excellent value if you are looking for a budget stay (apartment). Nice pool although we didnt use it. Very friendly staff at checkin.

Rooms are dated though and the beds are not good but we are happy to have stayed here for 4 nights, being able to cook for ourselves, having a separate bedroom (baby sleeping in the living room).

Would come back because of the cheap rate.

I always stay at these apartments when staying in Perth due to the fabulous location and the great value. A two minute stroll to Hyde Park and to the many restaurants in Northbridge.
The rooms are neat and self contained and offer parking.

I stayed here with my mum for 3 weeks in February 2012. It is very clean and comfortable. We didn't know what to expect so took essentials with us - such as tea towels, dishcloths, tea, coffee and loo roll. We didn't need any of it!! Even washing up liquid was provided.

We were able to walk into Perth CBD but on really hot days we took the bus just outside the apartments. Across the road is a lovely cafe (can recommend the key lime pie).

The apartment had a kitchen/diner/lounge with fridge freezer, hob and microwave, two seater sofa and small table seating 4. There were also 2 single beds in the lounge part and a flat screen TV. The next room had a double bed with a large wardrobe, bedside cabinets and the ensuite bathroom. So you had to go through the bedroom to get the the loo. Not a problem for us but not everyones cup of tea!

Wireless internet was great and the pool and area around were good - BBQ facilities available too.

Towels were changed every other day and bed linen every week (I think). Packets of tea, coffee and sugar also provided.

The staff were very helpful and friendly.

I would have no problems in recommending Brownelea for anyone who wants cheap, clean, no frills accommodation.

My partner and I stayed at the Brownlea Holiday Apartments for a week in September 2010
We found it clean and comfortable with cooking facilities, Laundry, outdoor pool etc.
The staff were very helpful. There are plenty of eateries within walking distance. The CBD is about a 20 minute walk from the apartments , and a deli opposite , and a bakery over the road . Off street parking is available . All in all a good value for money place to stay Les Breen

The apartment was small but adequate as a base. The pool area was better than I expected from the photos on the web site.
