A very relaxing luxury weekend, we were made to feel very welcome and nothing was too much trouble. Our room was very spacious and comfortable. We took advantage of the movie channel with lots of choices, ideal when the weather changed. Nice little extras like Nespresso machine, bottle of green tea on arrival. Been greeted by the owner, and the... More

Enjoyed our 4 night stay very much.We were upgraded to a one bedroom suite which was very spacious with a kitchen and good sized bathroom. Seperate bedroom and very large balcony area. The hotel was very quiet at night which we appreciated. Breakfast was very good, and our two dinners in Opus restaurant were excellent. I would have appreciated more... More

We chose The Richardson for a birthday night stay and indulged in the luxury package that was available at the time. It's not cheap but we were very pleased with the inclusions (high tea on arrival, dinner for two at Opus restaurant, one night in a suite, breakfast - all for two) for a fairly reasonable price. The staff were... More

It was a weekend away for me and my wife. Arrival is efficient and friendly. The room is comfortable, cleanliness excellent, the bed comfortable although a variety of pillows in the room was not available. Shower is roomy and the bath deep, with relaxing Epsom salts ready to go. The day spa is AMAZING. A 1:20hr massage gets you of... More

As a group of 8 we were given a private room. This elevated our experience even more. From the moment we entered we were treated like royalty. Service was 2nd to none. Food was exquisite. I have been to many high teas around Perth and this is one of the absolute best. Highly recommended.

Visited here for a weekend getaway and had heard good things but was still unsure what to expect. I did wonder if I'd like it as much as The Hyatt, my favourite getaway.

Highly rated in the guidebooks but in reality somewhat dated. Compared with the new COMO Treasury in central Perth (trendy, stylish and sophisticated) the Richardson feels and looks rather provincial and tired. The bar and restaurant pretty empty. Breakfast good but nothing special. On the walls are photos of famous past guests including Tony Blair & Cliff Richard : giving... More

Dear Mugged in Rome, We appreciate you taking the time to write your critique on The Richardson. Your experience was obviously not what you were looking for. Our hotel does not pretend to be “trendy” and we have no ambition to attract the “current exciting crowd”. Ours is a hotel with conservative values and contemporary style – our objective is... More

Simply outstanding from the first moment you step in the door. Personal welcome by the Manager, attentive but unobtrusive staff and restaurant service not seen for many years.
