Portman House
Reviewed April 27, 2012

With access off the main street of Scone, this hotel is well situated. Rooms appear quite new, and have all cooking facilities you would need, including hot plate, small oven, sandwich maker - the list goes on. Crockery/cutlery is new and plentiful. Coles is less than 2 minutes walk should you want to cook in your room. Rooms are equiped with a dishwasher, washing machine and dryer. I stayed in the studio and the room was stylish,spacious and well appointed with 2 lounges, coffee table and another table at the end of the bed, not to mention a desk and plenty of powerpoints - great for business travel. There is no reception, but an onsite manager who is very lovely and professional, you just call on arrival and I had no issues. Plenty of pillows, efficient and very quiet air con, free internet, undercover parking. I will be staying here again.

Room Tip: There is a train track that runs directly past the Hotel and being a light sleeper, i did hear a tra...

Portman House in Scone - a little quirky in that it has a Guest Manager (available on the Portman House Phone number 24/7) rather than a full time reception area - but having said that, is only an observable difference. The service is personal and effficient. There are four townhouse style untis with separate bedroom, and four studio style units. Clean modern and nicely situated if between shops on the main street - it sits back behind a gated wall and you would largely not know it is there. Coles supermarket is on one side, with driveway access to Porman via a security gate operated by your keycard, from the rear - round past Coles carpark. I have stayed at several Motels in Scone - this is our preferred choice now - bit more expensive, but never ever had a problem. Full kitchen facilities, BBQ on small private side verandah. Covered parking for each unit. Highly recommend this for couples or small family who can make use use of the sofa bed in the sitting room. Definitely a gem in the absolute centre of Scone.

Room Tip: All rooms are about the same - noise was never an issue and I hate noise.

I booked a studio apartment for a work trip. It had a clean, fully stocked kitchen, comfy bed, stylish lounge and car-port parking.
Didn't use the free internet access but it was available. I also like having a DVD player when I travel.
The place had a strangely closed in... space ship feel? The venetian blind didn't open properly and the sliding double doors opened to a brick wall.... sorry "courtyard." I felt quite isolated from the outside world and natural light.

Watch out though, you will miss the entrance from the main road!

The studio apartment I stayed in was about 50m2 of stylish luxury, plus a courtyard with bbq, and under cover carport. The apartment has kitchen facilities, a double sofa-bed and one easy chair, plasma TV with Austar, free internet access, a desk and room safe. The management are very friendly and flexible and keep the property very well maintained. The rooms are sound proofed and is next door to the Coles in Scone in the centre of town so you can shop next door until 10PM every night.
