“Average but OK”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2013

When we first arrived we thought it was a fairy standard 70's motel. It was but has been expanded and is now quite a large of complex of motel rooms no doubt catering to the mining industry.

Our rooms a bit of walk from the reception. Small but clean with comfy bed and good shower. The location is couple of blocks from the Tourist information and a bit further to the main hotels but all in walking distance. It is next door to the Hay St brothels if that's your thing!

The big disappointment was the breakfast. A limited choice of cereal and toast with instant coffee.

Next time I would try somewhere else but you could do worse.

Thank you for your review. The property underwent a major expansion in 2010, with addition of our business class rooms and suites. All of our rooms are located on ground level, conveniently close to parking.

Like most businesses in Kalgoorlie, we do cater to the mining industry, however, we have a strong focus on tourist and leisure guests who appreciate our great central location and friendly staff.

For those that want something light we have a continental breakfast selection at The Blue Monkey restaurant. There is also a great range of a la carte dishes (e.g. Eggs Benedict, Pancakes etc) and it is open from 5am – 10am daily and from 6pm for dinner.

Regards,

William Brooks

Hi JulesD,

Thank you for your review. It's good to hear you found our property a nice place to stay.

Upon check-in we take a pre-authorisation on your credit card for the total amount of your stay plus an amount of $50. A pre-authorisation is a temporary hold of a specific amount of the available balance on a credit or debit card. The pre-authorisation is not a charge and no funds
were debited from your account. The $50 is to cover any additional charges that you may have incurred during your stay such as room service from the Blue Monkey restaurant. When your bill was finalised this amount was automatically released.

If you have any queries about this please contact me on 08 9091 3333.

Stayed here overnight on our way to Perth from the east. I booked online with breakfast included as a special but there was no mention of this at check in. To be honest I was so tired I couldn't be bothered arguing but it didn't give me a good first impression.

The room was pretty small but functional enough to cater for our intended one night stay and sleep after a long day's drive from the border. The big screen tv worked well and the shower was brilliant. The fridge made such hideous noises, I had to get up and turn it off during the night. Other than that it was very quiet and I got a good night's sleep.

There was nothing particularly wrong with this motel but it lacks any real charm. Felt very cold and didn't leave me with any desires to stay again, not to mention it's priced like you're a miner with a fistful of cash.

Hi Neil,

Thanks for taking the time to share your experience. I'm glad you had a good nights sleep in one of our comfortable beds.

I have had a look at your reservation and your room was booked with our June special with free continental breakfast at the Blue Monkey Restaurant. I apologise for the front desk staff member not informing you about this upon check in. This was due to an error on our end. Don't hesitate to ask if you have a queries as the front desk staff could have quickly resolved this for you.

We hope that you will choose us again when travelling to Kalgoorlie.

Regards,
William Brooks

Only got to stay here one night but have to say I would happily stay longer. Stayed in a two bedroom apartment and it was very modern, clean and spacious. Shower was wonderful. Not cheap but then nothing in Kalgoorlie is. I wish we had eaten at the restaurant because I was told by an ex-local, after our trip, what wonderful food it has.

Thanks for your review of our Business Class Suite. We have a range of rooms that can suit most travellers and budgets. The Business Class Suites are our largest room, with two bedrooms, two bathrooms and a fully self-contained kitchen. As you mentioned they are quite modern and spacious and we find they are great for families.

We look forward to having you back in the future and hope you can try the food at the Blue Monkey Restaurant.

We stayed in a one bedroom apartment over the Easter long weekend. The property was easy to find and parking convenient. Reception friendly and welcoming. Our room was very clean and spacious. My two most important criteria - a really comfortable bed and a good hot shower were spot on. The location is quiet and tucked away just a five minute stoll to the main shops/restaurants. There's a wide selection of free in-house movies if you want to stay in, but we were too busy sightseeing. The cost was modest for a long weekend and good value. Overall we were really impressed with the View on Hannans and had a very relaxing and enjoyable holiday.

This is a large complex with many rooms in buildings separate from one another and is quite a walk from the centre of town. We stayed in a business class room which was very small but modern, clean & comfortable. Upon entering the room, however, we found it had a terrible smell, which we tracked to the bathroom & believe was the cleaning agent that had been used. We found we had to keep the bathroom door closed and the exhaust fan on, which improved things after a while. The shower was large & the water pressure excellent. Parking for each of the rooms in our section was at either end of what was a long building of rooms, so there was quite a walk to bring luggage to the room and the lane upon which the vehicle was parked was connected to a backstreet, so that vehicle security was a concern. The motel is connected to a lovely restaurant with excellent food and good friendly staff. There is also a pub a short distance away where the weary traveller can restore one's spirits after a long drive.

Hi John,

Thank you for the review of our property. I am glad you enjoyed our business class room and the food at The Blue Monkey restaurant. The motel has a great location only 2 blocks walk from Woolworths, the post office and the tourist information centre.
Although we have parking conveniently located near all of the rooms we are always happy to locate you in a room with parking right out the front. We also have secure car parking that is available for all guests and accessible from Hay Street.

Regards,
William Brooks

Stayed here many many times and normally get a one bedroom apartment. Beds are ok, bathrooms are very small and cannot open some of the doors all the way as they hit the toilet bowls. Foxtel is included which is a bonus. Location is good too, short stroll to pubs and town. Do not try to cook or your stove as it will stink your room out. The range hoods don't really work and my room smelt of steak for 2 days. The filters in the range hoods were all greasy. Will stay here again as my work pays for it, but there is plenty of other good accomodation in kalgoorlie worth checking out!

Thank you for taking the time to write a review.

I'm glad you enjoyed the free Foxtel channels. We also have 2 free movie channels. I'm glad you were able to make use of the fully self-contained kitchen facilities. Apologies about the state of your range hood. We have recently renovated the bathrooms in all of our one bedroom apartments and during this time have checked that all of the kitchen range hoods are clean and functioning correctly.

We look forward to seeing you again and hope you like our newly refurbished bathrooms.

Kind Regards,
