This is a quirky place. The deluxe rooms are on the higher floors and have great views of the river. These are big rooms which are well equipped.

I really liked it but..

It is privately owned, so service is a bit quirky. Generally good, but when we left a do not disturb sign up they phoned to ask when we wanted our rooms cleaned, with a definite undertone of "Right now would be a good response".

Cleaning was also a bit haphazard, but not enough to complain about.

But the view made up for everything.

I was just in perth and stayed two nights at the new esplanade,
I just walked around and found it..
It's very basic no frills and suitibable if you're not picky...
maybe notch above a backpacker hang out.........
I actually stayed at a backpacker place called the emperor's crown..........one night in shared for 25.00 and a couple of nights in a private room shared bathrooms for 88.00 a night.......... I actually like this place better, it's well managed, clean ( somewhat new) and is just on the other side if the tracks from the city center......I must say my hostel days are long over, but I didn't mind the private room......
back to the new esplanade............
it's passable and the price isn't too bad at 110.00 per night.......
but it's no luxury stop........

First of all I stayed in this hotel because my Daughter and I were visiting Perth without my Husband so I wanted something central and where I could self cater. That and the great view across the Park to the River are the only redeeming features of this hotel.

We came to Perth from the Goldfields of WA where the April temperatures were still around 25-30 degrees celcius during the day and 15 - 20 degrees at night, Perth temperatures for April though are quite a bit lower. This was the first problem I encountered, the room was FREEZING, I turned on what I thought was a reverse cycle airconditioner but only cool air came out, no heat. I called the front desk to tell them the heater was not working and they told me that although it was reverse cycle it was controlled centrally by management and it wasn't time to switch it over to heat yet, despite night time temps getting down to about 8 degrees! I asked if they had a portable heater I could use in my room but they did not. So for the 5 days we were there, every day after sightseeing we would come back to the room, eat our evening meal, have a really hot shower to warm up and then get into bed.

In the mini bar fridge there were drinks that had mould around the lids. It was obvious that the maid hadn't looked in there for months let alone cleaned it at all.

The windows had packing tape around the edges, I didn't peel the tape back to inspect so I do not know what the tape concealed; cracks? broken seals?

There were very loud banging mechanical sounds at all hours, our room was at the end of the hall so I presume these noises where from the building next door?

The bathtub had cracked mouldy seals.

This was a $160.00 "Deluxe" room.

I agree with the other reviewer who said this Hotel is NOT 3 stars, 2.5 if it is lucky. I would have to be really desperate for somewhere to stay to return there.

Weve stayed at this hotel a few times..but we only ever stay the one night. Its a very basic no frills hotel. We stay because its cheap and it means we can have a fantastic dinner (and a few drinks without driving) in our favourite restaurant The Grand Palace (opposite)
This Hotel has no bar or
restaurant just a cafe on the ground floor which only serves breakfast.

However I believe the hotel has been sold and is to close in April2007 for refurbishment.

Just back from perth and What a let down of a hotel do not believe their website!!! Hostel would be a better discription Staff were unfriendly and the rooms had not been cleaned and the carpet had never seen a vacum cleaner. The TV didn't even have a remote. The cover on the Bed was stained and torn. The shower in the bathroom while not bad you can ony use if you are short. There is parking but it cost 11 a night and the resturant is not one and only opens for breakfast!!!!! it is located accross from barick street jetty but do not expect the place to be lively it isn't.. Do not stay here
