Firstly the nightly rate is a bit steep for what you get, but it's Perth so you can't really expect much better so I haven't marked it down on that front.
On arrival we found the staff very helpful and the room clean, but over the next few days it started to degrade due to the lack of room service. While it's understandable that the room isn't serviced every day it would be good if the rubbish bins could be cleaned out and new towels offered every couple of days.
Other positives were a complimentary copy of The Australian provided each day (plus local Sunday papers) and a good selection of snacks to be purchased or charged to your room 24 hours a day at reception.
When we checked in we were warned about works taking place in the hotel from 8am weekdays, but there's also a construction site next door who are happy to kick-off at around 7am with drills, hammers etc.. This is not the hotel's fault but something to be careful of, maybe check with the Outram if they know the status of the works when booking.
As previous reviewers have mentioned the rooms are bizarrely designed. The spa is enormous, which is good if you want a spa but otherwise it just takes up 20% of the total space of the room. The shower, which is located directly behind the TV (which faces the bed), has two doors - which is unique, but also fairly pointless unless you've got two people entering from different directions. There's an identical bathroom mirror and sink on either side of the shower, which is helpful if you've got two people staying there but is also taking up space.
There are two bedside lamps, but bizarrely you can't control them individually and turning either on from the power point next to the bed turns both on at the same time - making it difficult for one person to sleep while another one reads.
The bathroom doesn't afford much privacy, and because you have to turn the light on with the door open before entering the toilet it's no good if another person sleeping in the bed is a light sleeper or is light sensitive.
There is very little natural light (our only window faced a brick wall) and by the second day the room had started to develop a dank, musty smell which we couldn't get out even when opening the balcony doors.
A car park is available at $10 a night, but of the limited spots available two of them require precision driving skills to avoid hitting either the bollards or the concrete supports - and the marks left on the concrete show that many have come unstuck in the past. We ended up giving up and parking outside instead of damaging a hire car, the bays to avoid are A and H.
There are a few places to eat nearby, and to get takeaway but keep in mind that there's nowhere in the room to eat other than on the bedside tables while sitting on the bed. Also BYO cutlery as there's none available in the room.
Not a bad option for a short stay or overnight, but more than a couple of days is probably pushing your luck. It's located in a fairly quiet area of town but the free red bus is located directly outside which is helpful if you're trying to connect to the CBD area.
