Efficient but seemingly stern staff.
Dated foyer, with a handy (tiny) convenience store conveniently located on one side, near the elevators. The convenience store sold very few items but was quite handy to have so close by.
There was no visible bin in the foyer, so travellers had just left rubbish, presumably from their visits to the convenience store, on the coffee table in the waiting area.
My room was clean, with modern furnishings. The style featured dark wood, warm colour tones, cream walls and olive furnishings.
I realise that art is subjective and that some travellers may not notice or be concerned by such things, but the art work in the room was very much not to my taste and I found it rather distracting and off-putting. It was hard to ignore, having been placed on the wall near the television. It didn't seem to watch the other items in the room. I've attached a photo of the art work.
My room was at the back of the hotel, facing away from the main road. The down side of this was that my room faced directly into the car park. When I opened the blinds, I had an excellent view of the car park. I could see cars and people in the car park and they could see me. I kept the curtains closed after this discovery.
The elevators were a bit clunky and some of the buttons needed to be pressed several times in order to get them to function. When another traveller pushed the wrong button, we were delivered to the basement storage area. It was dark and very creepy. I would have thought that there'd be a lock on a floor like that, but I think there may have been renovations occurring during my stay, so perhaps that explains why we were able to go to this floor. I wouldn't recommend letting children ride the elevators alone and say this due to both the buttons not working as easily as may be expected and also as a trip to the dark basement might not be ideal for them.
The room itself was comfortable. The seat (arm chair) was big and comfortable, almost good enough to sleep on. The tea and coffee facilities were clean and new. The range of specialty teas (eg lavender) was appreciated.
The bedroom contained a large bed (queen size, I believe), arm chair style seat, desk and chair, floor lamp and a flat screen TV. The bathroom contained a shower, basin and toilet.
The location is central. Perth CBD is quite small and most things are within easy walking distance, in my opinion. I walked around the city centre both during the day and late at night and felt safe at all times.
Breakfast was included with my booking and consisted of a buffet. There seemed to be only a very few options available in the buffet, but I admit that I arrived close to the end of breakfast. The timing seems strict as food was being packed up and tables were being reset around me.
I couldn’t hear any street noise while I was in my room. During the day, I could hear noise from the corridor and car park. I didn’t hear any noise at night.
I thought the room price was ok, especially given that I booked at the last minute. For the fee, I was provided with a clean room in a central location. Rooms can be hard to find in Perth, in my opinion, and I’d recommend booking in advance if at all possible.
