“Something different”
Reviewed July 25, 2013

This building is a step into the history of Kalgoorlie. It is beautifully appointed and centrally located. The rooms were warm and comfortable and the showers were hot. Really enjoyed the weekend there.

Great big room in the center of the town filled with fun and history. We were very impressed by how friendly and helpful the staff were, they truly spoilt us!! Have highly recommended to my own friends and anyone travelling through Kalgoorlie! See you guys again soon!

the hotel was centrally in downtown Kalgoorlie and the room was clean and comfortable, although overlooking one of the town's major intersections was rather noisey. However the room's well equipped balcony offset this minor disadvantage and would i imagine a great location to sup a ber or too during the summer. Go elsewhere for brekky - the menu was limited, average and expensive.
Accommodation Recommended

Room Tip: ask for a balcony room - more costly but worth it.

There is no doubt that this hotel is in the middle of the CBD, for us this was a bonus Asia meant once the car was parked & out luggage unloaded we could simply walk around town. We were treated by a friendly lady who was very helpful & had upgraded our room, certainly can't complain about that. There building is well & truly beautiful & grand & the rooms have been respectfully created. There is no lifts you will need to carry your bags up the grand staircase, this may be an issue for older visitors.

We are a retired couple and booked this hotel after seeing it in the travel section of the paper. Due to the fact we don't have a computer we made the booking over the phone. After a lovely trip on the Prospector we were looking forward to our time at the palace. But we found it very noisy due to a party that went to 3am and were very surprised to find the beds are made every day "except Sunday!" Some of the minor things that caused concern were the light that didn't work on the balcony and the TV was so low on the wall I hit my head on it. A few other annoying things made us decide that we won't go back.

Walking into the hotel you are immediately confronted with federation period grandeur, the sweeping staircase gives a great view of the lobby. The entrance hallways do require a little attention by means of maintenance, but this does not reflect of the room which I occupied.

Staying in one of the queen balcony rooms for three nights was a pleasure. I must admit that some of the reviews around the general upkeep and cleanliness of the hotel made me doubt my decision to book, but I am glad that I took the chance. The room was very clean, freshly decorated, newly carpeted, ensuite, digital tv, had tea and coffee facilities, a king bed and a great view over the main drag of Kal. The bed was very comfy and the double enclosure from the balcony allowed 90% of the street noise to be excluded.

The only criticism I would have is that the bathroom was a little tired and in need of some new fittings, but it was very clean and serviced our needs nonetheless.

I would highly recommend the Palace Hotel balcony rooms based on the cost and the great location it holds.

I recently stayed at the Palace and found the rooms to be more than adequate for a few nights. A balcony overlooking the main street was a bonus and the double doors ensured a peaceful nights sleep. The Palace was on a room only basis but there are bars and restaurant on site. There are several dining establishments within easy walking distance. There is ample parking outside the Palace and I will certainly be returning when I am next in Lalgoorlie.

Room Tip: Try and get a balcony room as it is somewhere nice to chill out in the evening
