This was my second visit to Perth and spent some time researching places to stay. This wasn't my first choice - that was a place nearer the centre of Perth who cancelled on me with less than a weeks notice, so I was lucky to find Trigg Retreat had spaces.
It all turned out beautiful, the room I was in was spotless, tastefully decorated and with a large ensuite. I liked that there was a small fridge in the room which meant I could keep some cold drinks aside. There was also a full size ironing board and iron - something you would have to ask for specifically elsewhere.
I took pictures of my room and I think at some point or other, the other rooms were open as well, so I snapped shots of those as well - it was nice to see the place open and not just a corridor of doors as you tend to see at standard B&B's. But this isn't a standard B&B, it's quite lovely. The breakfasts also were delicious and filling. I chose cooked breakfasts all days but one - would recommend the full brekkie and the croissants - yum!
The location was just up the freeway from Perth - maybe 10-20 mins by car - although it could get busy in the standard rush-hours, but this suited me just fine. Another 5 minutes down the road was Scarborough beach with plenty of parking. Going north - about 10-15mins - there was the Hillarys marina where you could get the ferry to Rottnest Island - and leave the car for free.
I loved that there was free internet, DVD's and books, although I didn't need too much of that. Not far from the B&B there was a shopping centre, cinema, Fitness First at Inaloo, which saved me some trips into Perth.
And just on the sea front there is a restaurant with a takeaway pizza place on the right - the pizza place has the BEST pizza I've ever had - can't believe it's so far away!
Would definitely recommend this as a place to stay, and will go back myself.
