Our first few nights in WA were spent in Hillarys Harbour Resort.
We had a 2 bed/2 bath apartment for 4 adults on the 2nd (or is that 3rd?) the top floor anyway. There is no lift, so we had to carry our cases up ourselves but it was not a problem. The rooms were spotlessly clean, very well equipped and quite spacious.

Perth is quite a sprawling city, and Hillarys Resort is definitely out in the suburbs.
The Harbour area itself has plenty of shops, cafes & restaurants and of course AQWA - all within 2 minutes walk of Hillarys Resort.

There are however are no ‘grocery’ type shops to buy provisions, nearby. Hillarys reception sell a simple daily breakfast pack but we wanted more than this, so ended up hiring a small car for a couple of days just to get to Woolworths!

The swimming pool is quite small and as we were there over a weekend, it was busy with Oz families and their kiddies.

Don’t forget to take advantage of the discount offered to Hillarys guests by some of the Harbour shops & cafes – 10/15 % off is not to be turned down in this economic climate!

Hillarys is perfectly placed for getting the ferry to Rottnest Island, sunning yourself on the glorious Sorrento Beach, and swimming in the beautiful Indian Ocean. Staying here for a few days before setting off on our driving tour, was very relaxing, and allowed us to recover from the trauma of 22 hours flying in from the UK.

Last stayed at this hotel in May 2010.Went back and stayed there this weekend and was still very impressed.Alot of changes have taken place since our last stay.The rooms have been renovated and our bed and bed sheets were all new and fresh.We had a great room on the third level and the view was fabulous...however some friends of ours,who are travelling with a baby requested a room on the ground floor (easier with a pram!!) and their room overlooked the carpark and was a bit dark, although it had been renovated as well it did have the same feel ito it as our apartment.They asked to be moved but sadly the hotel was full.The manager assured them that if they had asked for a room with a view they would have got one.Interestly,all the staff at this hotel were the same as last time..and all still friendly and happy!!Be warned there are no lifts at this hotel and if you are on the third floor be prepared to get toned calf muscles walking up and down the stairs!!We didn't mind but our lazy teenagers were unimpressed.There are plenty of new cafes and restaurants in the Harbour and the Breakwater pub is a must for a drink although their meals are a bit expensive.We had a lovely weekend and would stay here again..the kids had so much to do we hardly saw them and we had a nice catch up with our friends by the pool and used the BBQ area which was clean and user friendly.

We stayed at the Hillarys Resort as we had been invited to a wedding at the Yatch club near by.

Have not been to the resort before but was very impressed with the location. The views from our balcony were spectatular and our room had recently been refurbished, with a new kitchen and new linen plus it had been freshly painted...the room had a very modern seaside feeling to it.

The bed was very comfortable and we had it serviced daily by the fabulous room attendants who were all very smiley and happy.


Our friends that came to the wedding with us were equally happy impressed. The pool area was a relaxing way to spend the afternoon before getting ready for the wedding.

All in all we had a wonderful 4 days of relaxing and I must say that the manager was a delightful man who went out of his way to help us with all enquiries.

We are looking for a family friendly place for the x mas holidays and feel this would be a great location to take our teenage kids...as there is plenty for them to do.

Hope this is helpful!!!

My family stayed here recently while attending a wedding, having travelled from the other side of the globe.
The resort itsself was ok with a swimming pool, sauna & jaccuzi. It was however very quiet on weekdays, probably due to time of year.
We had booked our apartment through a private owner and unbeknown to us you can not access the reception for anything at all.
My aunt and I made the mistake of going to the reception area one day to ask for a local bus time table & the charming manager was unfortunately present.
Once he found out that we were in a private apartment he basically verbally attacked us, both of us were taken aback in disgust !! He told us we contributed nothing to the resort at all (but I am pretty sure the private owner would be contributing in some form of annual fee arrangement ).
Unfortunately 2 of his poor staff had to witness the dressing down we received for basically asking for some public transport advice.
This message is basically here to warn travellers that if you do book these apartments privately steer clear of reception area and the manager who has no people skills whatsoever.
You are not even allowed to pay to use their internet access which proved difficult seeing as there is nowhere else in the harbour resort you can do this.

Manager's Response - "nasty piece of work"
Dear Sir
Please be advised that Hillarys Harbour Resort is a 4.5 star property that welcomes guests to our resort from all over the world.

Unfortunately you, your family or another person whom booked your accommodation made a decision to stay in a residential apartment that is not affiliated with our resort business.

On the day in question myself and my staff felt you wanted to book our guest "free shuttle" service to Whitfords shopping centre, however it was unfortunate that we couldn't explain our policy, that we do not transfer non-paying guests.

In the future we do hope you return to Hillarys it is a fantastic location. Please book our wonderful accommodation direct and I would be delighted to welcome you personally and offer you all our services.

Yours sincerely
Rolf Chorley
