Fantastic location. Close to restaurants. Great view, especially at night. Room was nice, clean & comfortable. Maybe the only complaint was the walls were a bit thin. Could hear TV pretty clearly from neighbouring room. Bed comfortable. Was overall pleased with our stay.

We stayed at the Peninsula apartments twice while in transit through Perth, having stayed a few years ago also. The apartments are ideally located some with good views of the Perth skyline, and adjacent to the Swan River and it's riverside walking track. Mends Street shops and restaurants are only a few minutes walk away, and there is a handy IGA supermarket there that is open relatively late. We stayed both in a "River view" room and a standard room. The decor is not that much changed from our visit 4 or 5 years ago, although it was obvious the river view rooms have had a bit of a update compared to the standard rooms (newer kitchen appliances etc.) Bathrooms are still a little dated, although very clean considering. The rooms were spacious, particularly the living area, and the kitchens were excellently equipped for self-caters (no ovens though, but good stovetops and microwave) Cleanliness was excellent throughout. The reception staff were very friendly and helpful and there is ample parking (without cost) Definitely an excellent base to explore Perth. Perth hotel prices are very high compared to other parts of Australia and this is good value considering the location and self-catering facilities.

Stayed 6 nights in the luxurious Penthouse suite. Fabulous views of Perth city skyline. High quality room and furnishings. Walking distance to restaurants, shopping and the ferry across to Perth. Minor issue with leak from room in bathroom during heavy rain, but maintenance are on top of it and shod be rectified by next resident. Also air cond switch dicey but again maintenance have ordered a new one. Service impeccable and staff very friendly and accommodating. Great room for a couples week away, it's not cheap but 1st class fit out ( eg 3 TVs including a 60" inch screen). Didn't see other rooms in the establishment but if one of their premier rooms is anything to go by, We highly recommend it!!

Perfect location opposite the Perth skyline and so close to the ferry. Some nice eateries nearby but also some average ones. The Managers have acknowledged the place needs a bit of a refurb and freshening up in terms of furniture and decor, but it is currently of acceptable standard (just). The apartment ticked the boxes of clean, comfortable and quiet. Overall it was a pleasant stay and value for money.

Room Tip: When booking, be sure to understand whether you are getting a full or partial riverview apartment. I...

I stayed here because I was going to an event nearby so didn't really utilise the facilities in the room. It was spotlessly clean and everything needed was in the kitchenette if you wanted to eat in. The location was really good, with the river over the road and the zoo and hotels in walking distance and easy commuting distance to the city. The room is a little dated but comfortable and clean. The only downside of my stay was it was noisy from other patrons. Late at night there were children running around outside and loud babies and parents which carried on until after midnight. It is probably more suited to family accommodation because of this.

Just don't look around the room too hard. I'm afraid if the room was $100 cheaper it would be spot on - but a little disappointed when we arrived to see the state of the room which is somewhat run down but we have paid an absolute premium price for not much more than a view which you can see if you lean over the balcony or press your face against the window. All in all... Average

Great location and easy to park and access. The service was friendly and efficient. The decor is typical and beige. Cooking facilities allow you to avoid expensive and average Perth restaurants which is good. Given the inflated prices in the city these days maybe this par for the course but coming from Sydney it seems a bit pricey. It dusted our requirements otherwise.
