“High Tea - What a rip off!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 18, 2012

I live a 20 min drive from Joondalup resort & wanted to take a guest we had staying with us to a "High Tea". I have only experienced a high tea at the Hyatt in Perth city & thought Joondalup Resort would do the same. On reading what it offered as a hightea, I went ahead & booked it.
On arrival there was a list of the choise of food that we would be recieving & could choose between "Sparkling" (Sparkling wine) or without.
After recieving the drinks, Tea, water, wine, a three tear cake plate came out.
This offered about 4 small scones, very little cream & jam. About two small sandwiches cut up & three small "Party" deserts each. This for $38 EACH!!
We came away VERY unimpressed & felt totally ripped off for the price! Never again!

Good value hotel resort on the edge of the city. Staff are friendly and provide a good level of service. Lagoon view rooms have a pleasant vista. If you are doing business in the city you would need to hire a car ... But the parking is free. Great acess to nth suburbs.

Great stay and would love to stay again next time I'm in Perth. Enjoyed a relaxed atmosphere at the Kangaroo Arms which is situated on the Resort premises. I would recommend a stay at Joondalup Resort.

We frequently stay at this hotel – particularly with family over Christmas time. We love it as it has a relaxed resort feel which not many Perth hotels have. The pool area is lovely and definitely one of the best assets of the hotel. The views of the golf course and surrounding gardens are also beautiful and nice to walk through. The accommodation is modern and clean and I would recommend the garden rooms as they open out to the pool area and have views over the golf course and gardens.

Whether you are into golf, shopping or the beach this resort is well located for a rest. Although its in an outer satellite city of Perth everything you need is close. The rooms are spacious and quiet and the staff are friendly. The grounds are peaceful and the area is well kept. A really enjoyable stay and I will be back.

Two old blokes on golfari, so this was ideal. Overall the facilities are first-class - if you are a golfer, make sure you play the Quarry 9 as part of your round, it's visually stunning and a great test of your game.
We had a Lakeview room, clean, comfortable, bright and spacious with a very nice outlook. Breakfast in the main restaurant was the normal resort fare, it was OK, (coffee was only average) but we would probably use the coffee shop more often if we went back.
We only had dinner there once, and both agree we could have chosen better from the menu.
A tip - take up social membership if you are staying 3 or more nights, and plan to use the facilities extensively. Or plan to shop in the pro shop extensively. $55 gets you $10/night room reduction, 10% off food and bevvies, and 10% off in the pro shop. You'll soon get your $55 back.

Ran a leadership course there and the service, facillities and attention were all very good, despite there being many other groups there. The food in the restaurant was excellent as were the lunches and snacks provided for our group. Beautiful setting and the rooms are large and excellent. One of few places that provides free wireless internet = a big plus. The staff are all friendly and helpful.

We'll use Joondalup again for our workshops and I'd happily stay there even if not running a workshop.
