Reviewed 6 November 2013 via mobile

I had great expectations. probably that's the reason why I feel lukewarm about the hotel. aseptic, warm but ordinary, lacks vibrancy, lacks character. there is nothing special about this hotel in the west side of perth. away from street activity, away like in suburbia. if you want to stay in a quiet anonymous neighborhood this is the place.

Granted we only spent one night but could have easily stayed longer. on our short stay the staff were friendly and helpful. Rooms were decent sizes and spacious with all that you could need. Being in Perth for overnight we found that the hotel is well positioned and an easy drive to the airport.

Our suite was very well appointed with two bedrooms, two bathrooms (one with bath) a lounge area, a dining area and a kitchenette. The beds and quality of the linens was of the highest quality. The mini bar's offerings (actually a full size refrigerator) was excellent and the most reasonably priced I have come across in a very long time....

What The Richardson lacks in location is more than made up in other aspects. Comfortable room with kitchen facilities enabled us to self cater while taking advantage of the hotel's excellent service.
