“Good Value Accommodation”
Reviewed August 16, 2012

Don't be put off by the exterior appearance of the Murray Hotel. It is not a true 'hotel', however it is better than a motel. There is no lift and no ramp so you will have to carry your suitcase up or down the stairs - you enter reception on level 2. The rooms are large and recently refurbished to a good 3 - 3.5 standard. The bathrooms are small and the exhaust fan in my room was very noisy. Thick fluffy towels were provided and liquid soap, which I dislike as it is never easy to use in the shower. The room, which was spotlessly clean, is serviced daily with clean towels, though the bed linen is only changed weekly unless you request a more frequent change. The all inclusive continental breakfast is basic - canned fruit, no fresh fruit, cereals, toast, orange juice and if you want a coffee from the dispenser it costs $2.50. Better to wait and get a real coffee fix from a barista. The staff are friendly. The free Yellow CAT bus stops outside the door and gets you into the CBD in 10 minutes, otherwise it is a good 25 minute walk.

Arrived at the Murray on a cold Perth night to a warm welcome after a long flight. Don't be fooled by the 70s look of the exterior as inside it's modern and clean and has everything you would expect from a high quality motel room. Location is fantastic with loads of eating and coffee places within a blocks walk plus it has free buses that pull up right outside the front doors. Breakfast included is a great deal, good choice of cereals, nice bread selection and tea and coffee avail in lobby bar/ rest all day. The have a small menu for bar type meals we didnt try it but it was reasonably priced for perth and had tasty looking meals on it. We stayed in July and it was cold at night but rooms are toasty with fantastic quality bedding. Beds are amzingly comfy! Kings park is 5 mins walk away. Staff are fantastic, friendly, professional and very helpful. If you book and have trouble with stairs request a lower floor as there are three levels and no lift. Was a bit of a mission dragging up luggage to top floor but the lovely kiwi who worked there helped me with one of my bags! Outlooks from room are typically urban but all other details make up for this - I will definitely be back next time I am thru Perth.

Didn't know what to expect but Murray Street was great! Huge room with all amenities of laundry room across the corridor. Really handy for transport as the Yellow CAT bus (free service) runs every minutes from the doorstep to Perth City Centre and connects with the trains. Don't expect cooked breakfast - its quick and easy cereal and toast with juices and coffee - but clean, friendly and fresh. There is a small pool to the rear. It's a quiet location, parks just down the street and easy for local shops. Would stay there again without hesitation!

This is my second stay at the Murray Hotel and it was as good as the first. The reception staff are all very helpful and friendly and made my stay a pleasure. No question was too silly and no request too large or too small. Everyone went out of their way to help.

The room was immaculately clean as was the bathroom which though tiny, was perfectly adequate for one person to be in at a time. The towels were very clean and absorbent and were changed daily during my 5 day stay.

The king size bed was very very comfortable, not too firm nor too soft. The linen was crisp and white and clean and it was my choice whether to have it changed daily or just pulled up. The little open hanging area had plenty of clothes hangers as well as a handy iron and ironing board. The coffee and tea was adequately supplied and topped up on request with no problems.

The room service was quick and reasonably priced and the food was very nice. We had the fish and chips and salad 4 nights running we enjoyed it so much! Each serving came with 2 piping hot crispy battered pieces of fish, a mountain of chips and lovely mixed salad and tartare sauce. Delicious!

We enjoyed our stay very much and look forward to staying here again. I would recommend this hotel to anyone - it is quiet and clean, has the CAT bus at the door and the staff are welcoming and friendly.

On my visits to Perth I often only need a room for a couple of nights. This is the first time that I have stayed at the Murray Hotel on the corner of Murray and Thomas Street. Although I could book on line I rang the Hotel direct and spoke with Lisa, who was able to answer all my questions and I then made the booking over the telephone. On arrival we were also greeted by Lisa who was exceptionally friendly and helpful and gave me the fully run down of the hotel facilities. The rooms are as shown in the picture. Basic but very clean and comfortable. The shower room was small and basic BUT there was plenty of hot water and clean towels. Everything from the room. bathroom, entrance, bar and eating area, car parking etc was clean and was thoroughly clean and well maintained. In the room there was plenty of tea and coffee provided, there was also a flat screen TV and a hair drier. The other bonus was that there was free parking. The two meals that my guest and I had in the bar/eating area were delicious. I had steak with chips and salad and it was beautifully cooked. Any questions or concerns were addressed very quickly. As the hotel is on a corner of a busy road there is some traffic notice. Having travelled to many capital cities this would be expected. I found that b y 10am the traffic noise was very minimal and that the hotel provide great quality (not just basic cheap versions) ear plugs. Yes I heard some noise from the people in the room above me, and from the traffic, but this is not uncommon. If you are looking for clean, secure, reasonably prices basic accommodation then I would recommend this hotel to you.

Room Tip: The room I stayed in had a king bed and single bed so would be ideal for a small family.

The Murray Street Hotel was an excellent choice for a few days stay in Perth. The rooms were very generous size and immaculately clean. The staff extremely pleasant and helpful and although the hotel is older it is very well maintained. I would recommend it to anyone who wants to stay near the CBD without having to pay CBD prices, the free CAT bus stops right outside the door. Excellent semi budget hotel !!!

I live in the City of Perth. If you have ever seen the programme 'Deadwood' then you need to imagine a modern day version. This is it. I like a drink like the best of 'em, but this is full on drunken, ugly boom town stuff. Avoid. Go to Melbourne if you must. ....and this is from a sandgroper. Red Neck City? Yep. If that rattles your cage, then go for the over priced, Mining Owned (Mr.Burns from the Simpsons ain't in it) place. Go directly to Margaret River or Exmouth - where the beauty of Australia still lives.
