We went to Perth to see the wildflowers in spring, at Kings Park (which we absolutely loved), and the location of the hotel was great for that. The rooms have a slightly bygone (but very nice) feel, rather than being ultra-modern. We were lucky to be upgraded to a suite and we really enjoyed our stay. One last comment we... More

The hotel staff were very attentive. I did ask for a room with a view of Kings park (upper floors) but I was given a one-bedroom apartment on the lower floors.
