“Great location, good value, reasonable rooms”
Reviewed October 21, 2009

The location of these apartments is fantastic - right on the Swan River and around the corner from Mends Street (where you can find lots of nice places to eat). We stayed in a "standard" room so I wasn't expecting it to be amazing, and it wasn't. The room was quite dark and the bathroom needs renovation. Nevertheless, the staff were friendly and helpful and the room was spacious for the price. Overall it is a good value place in a great location. I would stay here again if I needed to be near Swan River at a decent price, but wouldn't recommend this place for a romantic getaway (unless you ask for one of the rooms with a view of the river, of which there are only a few).

We stayed here for 4 nights. The location to the Swan River foreshore, free parking and the availability of a number of eateries nearby are the best reasons for staying here. However, if you are expecting a serviced apartment that is modern, forget it. This building is dated and although every effort has been made to lift the appeal of it to travelers, it does not make the grade. A small hot water system per unit meant a cold shower for my husband until it had re-heated again. The rooms are small with the fridge in the kitchen not far away from the bed.

Stayed here for 3 nights in August - we arrived late at night, great instructions were left for us about checking in. we were able to park at the rear of the hotel in a secure park. Room was very comfy and had everything we needed. Very central to lots of attractions. very clean place. Staff very friendly and helpful. If we were to stay again we would book a room with a view and stay in summer to really enjoy the location of the place. Highly recommend to all.

We stayed in room 7 which is a two bedroom apartment on the ground floor for a week. The room was clean and had everything you need in an apartment. 2 single beds and a good size double bed. We were able to park our rental car right outside the apartment. Two issues a) there is only one bathroom (en-suite) and b) there is no view from this room. Staff were friendly and provided good advice regarding getting around Perth. Location is fantastic. Rooms are well serviced. Two minutes walk from a great selection of restaurants (recommend Cocos, the Italian and the Thai - all on Mends Street) and the ferry to Perth. Also close to the main highways so using a car is easy. 10 minutes walk from the zoo. 25 minutes from the airport.

Stayed here with my mum for 3 nights and would say this is a cozy apartment, very clean and staff are extremely helpful. Full kitchen facilities so we can cook for dinner and breakfast here. The only problem we had was as we didn't rent a car, we need to take ferry everyday to the city. All in all, I would recommend you to stay again next time if I drive!!

I stay here in May 09 for just over a week and it was great.
Firstly the location. Well what can i say its fantastic!!!! Its about 2 mins walk if that across the road to the Ferry jetty which takes you across to the city.

Rooms were really clean and well kept. Im not sure what the other rooms are like but ours were quite small and the only bathroom was an ensuite in one of the 2 room..
But other then that they were really nice.

There seems to be alot of noise going on in early mornings, e.g crashing , banging, people talking etc etc
Not sure why but its not the best if your a light sleeper.

Overall our stay was great and would definatly stay there again!

We stayed here for 4 nights, the apartments are in a fantastic location in South Perth just next to the river with stunning views, both day and night over to Perth. Stay here if you like easy access to the city but a quieter base. The regular ferry across the river is only 3 or 4 minutes walk and takes you across to the city.The surrounding area is pleasant, a supermarket within walking distance and a choice of restaurants ( some are BYO's- Bring Your Own Wine- but there is a bottle shop nearby if you havent taken any with you). The riverside area is great for walks and bike rides and there are free BBQ areas set up and good play areas for children. The apartment, on the ground floor had a small courtyard area and was very clean and well equipped, but a little dated. Staff were friendly and helpful.
