A wonderful luxurious experience for our family staying in a 2-bedroom self-contained apartment. We had all the comforts we could ask for, great service, a really good gym & pool, and great on-site dining. Located away from the noise of the CBD, but with easy access by car or free city bus a very short walk away. Of course luxury... More

While our accommodations were very good, we did not consider them five star and there were very few restaurants available in the evening for a light dinner., within a walking distance. Our room included a separate seating area and a refrigerator, microwave and coffee/tea maker. Every nearby place seems to close by 5:00 pm-6:00 pm. The hotel restaurant was open,... More

Reminds me of what Hotels used to be like...I regularly stay at hotels in Perth...this hotel is far and away the best I have stayed in. I have paid much more for far less value. The facility is very good, the breakfast delicious and the high rating has been given mostly due to the staff who were faultless in their... More

What a wonderful surprise! From the moment we arrived, I could sense there was something very different. Not the usual feel to a hotel getaway for the weekend (free on street parking of a weekend too). Our suite was impeccable. Never have I come across a hotel room so clean. In fact, I was certain that no-one had ever stayed... More

This hotel prides itself as an upmarket boutique residence. And physically ... it is! The rooms are extremely comfortable, the staff amazingly responsive. But it is severely compromised by its restaurant. There is a point where modern cuisine crosses a line and becomes simply not enough food for a meal. This hotel goes way over this line. Moreover the cost... More

I stayed here with my family for 4 nights just recently and had to make a profile just to let everyone know what an incredible time we had.

The Richardson feels a bit like an "old boys" club. The cozy bar seems to have regulars that come in while not necessarily staying at the hotel. The fine dining restaurant is excellent but not very full. It is a very professionally run operation. We were met by the General Manager (described as the owner) upon check in and he... More

This hotel was recommended as being very high brow. When we arrived it was very quiet and the front desk staff were very helpful and gave me a complimentary upgrade. The decor of the room was very bland but apart from that it was more like an apartment which was nice. However there was no sound dock or docking station... More

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.
