4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 19, 2008

I have to agree with AlfaAlfa I had a wonderful experience at the Formule 1 in Perth after flying in from Melbourne tired and irritable i was plesantly surprised to find a clean comfortable room. Had a nice hot shower slept well and off to the airport the next morning for my next flight. I have to agreewith alfa alfa i cannot agree with the other reviews not sure if the hotel has changed owners or picked up their game but i could not have been more impressed with the quality for a budget hotel.

We (2 adults and 2 kids) contacted the hotel before going overseas and reserved a family room (1 queen bed and 2 bunks) for our return journey a month later (Jan 2008) which entailed a day in Perth.
On arrival at 7 a.m. we called the hotel from the airport and confirmed that the room was ready and available. It was, so we went directly there from the airport. The room was ready - clean, and perfect for a good hot shower and a bit of a sleep before setting out for the day in Perth.
I can't agree with the other reviews. We were totally satisfied with our room.

Our flight arrived at Perth from Malaysia 1.30 am ( 2.5 hours late) and we were booked to fly domestic to Adelaide at 6.30am the same day. We booked the hotel due to the location near the domestic airport to enable us to shower and catch a few hours sleep before the domestic airport opened.

When we entered the room we noticed an awful smell. There was only one bath towel for 2 adults. Additionally the bedspread was filthy with holes and there was a small hole in the sheets. We were both so tired from a 16 hour flight we thought we would try to not to notice the smell and get some much needed sleep However, we could not sleep due to the horrible smell and we left within an hour of our arrival and waited for the domestic airport to open at 5am.

We understood that this was budget accommodation, however, budget does not equate to smelly and substandard accommodation.

We do not recommend Hotel Formule 1 Perth due to this awful experience.

Our first impression was not good. The manager of the place (wont mention his name) has a very poor personality for someone in hospitality.

We entered our room to find the following issues.
Dirty floor.
Stained sheets.
The floor of the shower has not been scrubbed in a considerable time and is grey/dark with muck.
There was hair in the wash basin.

We cut our accomodation short one day for various reasons and getting him to organise a refund was a big issue.

I guess you get what you pay for, next time I will spend another $5 a night and get somewhere decent.

Only plus was the continental breakfast at $6, includes cereals, taost, coffee, juice etc.

Stayed January 2007
