Room tired, small but bed comfortable. Breakfast cheap, but not great. Haven't got our security deposit of $100 back yet despite going backwards and forwards to management. Could only prop open the filthy window with a book. If you are looking for budget stay in the seedier end of Hay St and can get it at a discount price then...

First, the positives - such as they were. Hotel is central to Perth CBD, sights, restaurants, cafes etc. Front desk service was good and helpful. Showers were hot. There was a large fridge in room. Price was not expensive - but didn't really represent value for money. The hotel is rundown and needs a complete revamp. Room walls were badly...

The hotel is conveniently located right near the city and at a decent price. Thats until you see the state of the rooms. All the walls were cracked and damaged and had a really bad smell between cigarette smoke and mould I wouldn't visit again id rather pay the little extra for alot more at another hotel

Stayed here for 5 nights with family and booked twin beds for my mom and aunt - I thought it would be two small beds, but it came with two huge twin beds which could actually fit for 4 people in a room :) (+) reasonable price (+) central location in cbd (+) professional staff and fast service (-) stayed...

I chose this place as it was central and cheap. It should have been cheaper. the room was gloomy, dated, and smelt of urine . On the plus side the aircon was good, shower was hot and staff were nice. I guess if you just want a place to sleep, it's ok.

Neat and tidy but outdated, old and in need of a good renovation. If you are looking for a bed and shower this is for you. Not a honeymoon location. First room stank of smoke. Quickly moved with no fuss. TV and A/C also needed repair again with no fuss. It's 2.5 star (inside camping) and is just fine for...

Lovely hotel. Well known in Perth as the oldest licenced hotel. Rooms were medium size but well furnished. Bathroom was large and well appointed. My room didn't have a particularly interesting view, but I didn't need one. If you do, just ask for a front room. Loved all the old windows and staircases. Charming!

Bathroom was dirty, certain areas had definitely not been cleaned for a while as they had thick layers of dust. The shower head in our room was broken, wouldn't stay up. The shower would only be steaming hot or freezing cold, no in between. Staff were quite rude. Never said hello when we were at the desk, just last name,...

First impressions not good as reception really needs an upgrade, also strong smell of food. However twin room was spacious and clean with all facilities provided ie tea/coffee, minibar, aircon but no headboards. Had to pay $100 dollars cash deposit on arrival. Staff were very helpful. Offered discount on first meal and a free soft drink. Restaurant was open to...
