“great to getaway”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 23, 2006

We stayed here and fell in love with the hotel, it had everything we needed and especially the lagoon, was a bit too cold to go in, but lovely to sit around and relax.

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 12, 2005

We stayed at Observation Rise for 9 days in Jan when we visited and found that the 5 star hotel was really a 3 and a half star hotel...AVERAGE. However, when wanting to stay near the beach in Perth, Observation Rise is definitely the best accomodation. We walked several other hotels along the coast in Scarborough before deciding on this hotel. In addition, Qantas members get discounted rooms.
The room was very spacious, barely filled with any furniture and the in-room movies were only working some of the time. The only thing exciting were the wonderful views and close locality to late night bars and eateries.
With a 5 star rating you expect something beyond average.
