Manta on Hay is a centrally located Aparthotel, we had a two bed suite, it was very clean (cleaners came in daily) although it coulds have done with some updating it had everything we needed for our 7 day stay and was clean which was the main thing.
The kitchenette was fully equiped and we cooked meals a few times without any problems, also had a washing machine which as we were doing a lot of travelling was very important to us.
The view from our balcony was onto a court yard, would have been nicer to have had a street view, but as we were out all day it wasn't a problem, but if you are there for a while it would be annoying looking onto a windowless wall..
Mantra had all the usual facilities gym, swimming pool - which we used on a few occassions and found it to be perfect, although the hotel was very quiet when we were there it could be noisy if the hotel was busy as its not a very big area, but we found no problems and it was clean as were the sunbeds and surrounding areas.
The reception staff were lovely,very friendly and helpfull and will answer any questions you have about the area etc.
There is a supermarkert about 5 mins walk away and a small parade of shops with chemist,bottle shop, post office, appx 20 mins walk down the road is the Queen Elizabeth gardens and the waca ground.
It is an appx 20mins pleasant walk to the centre either along the main road and shops or through the gardens by the side of the Swan river.
There are cat bus stops outside the hotel.
The hop on off bus tour is good value for money and if your only in Perth for a short time its the best way to see the city.
A visit to the spectacular Kings Park is a must, a visit at night time to see Perth lit up is even better, then enjoy a drink/meal in the Last Shag bar overlooking the Swan river- perfect end to a long day.
Catch the boat down the Swan river to Freenmantle, visit the prison and do the tour (appx 1 hour) very interesting, stroll around market street then down to the harbour front and have fish and chips then on to the micro brewery for a drink overlooking the river, return back to Perth by train, it is so easy to get around by yourself no need to book excursions and is a lot cheaper and more exiciting.
A visit to Rotness Island is a full day out catch the ferry by the Bell Tower, best to book in advance including any visits or activities, the gun and tunnell tour is interesting.
The Grosvenor about a 5 mins walk fron Mantra is very good for meals well worth a visit.
Perth is a lovely clean safe city lots and lots to do ( depending on how long you are staying), could be worthwhile hireing a car to go to Scarboro', theRock Wave, Monkey Mia etc.
