“Stunning views, beauftiful house and even better host!”
Reviewed 17 January 2011

My partner and I decided to stay here for the last 3 days of our holiday before jetting off home to the UK, as it was close to the airport although not too close to be noisy.

The first thing we noticed when we arrived was the friendly welcome we recieved from Geoff our host who went out of his way to make us feel at home and comfortable.

Our room had a beautiful view over Perth, was very clean and even had small touches that were lovely. Even a stack load of Dvd's to choose from to watch if we wanted.
The shops were a little walk away, so transport would be better for getting around.

The general views and the swimming pool was lovely along with the outstanding breakfasts, and also the Kookaburra's were very friendly too! If you you want a relaxing stay and true value for money then we would definatly reccommend staying here you will not be dissapointed!

Just returned to Melb after a great trip to Perth. The Grandview was fantastic and very relaxing. Our host (Geoff) was most hospitable and extremely helpful with local knowledge. We especially enjoyed the views from the bacony where we could relax with a glass or two of some of the local wines

We stayed at Grandview for a total of 4 nights, 1 at the start of our Australia holiday and 3 at the end.
Geoff collected us from the airport after our early morning flight as arranged, and later that evening was kind enough to take us back to the airport to collect our rental car.
Geoff and Leanne’s friendliness was fabulous. Nothing was too much trouble for them, they were excellent and friendly hosts.
Grandview is a wonderful house, set on a hill overlooking Perth, with wonderful views of the city. The outside decking on the upper level provided a sitting area and the day bed was super in the sunshine! The lower level had the swimming pool, BBQ, dining table and chairs and sunloungers. We enjoyed watching the sun set over the city and the early evening visit from the Kookaburra.
The room itself was modern and clean and had everything you could want, with a large comfortable bed, foxtel cable TV (and a DVD player with selection of films), nice en-suite with shower, toiletries and heated towel rail. There was a separate room within the bedroom with clothes storage, fridge, tea and coffee making and an ironing board. Electric blankets were nice as it did get a little cool in the late evening.
Breakfast was continental style, with fruit, yoghurt, cereals, toast, croissants, teas, coffee and juice.
We were thankfully able to use the washing machine, which was very handy.
Geoff and Leanne are happy for you to share the facilities of the house, and there are interesting items of memorabilia all around.
A 20 minute walk (few minutes drive) up the hill is a very nice Italian restaurant called Embers, we ate there at lunchtime and also had a very nice evening meal (best to book for evenings as it gets busy). There is a French patisserie here too, although we did not get to try as it seemed to be closed a couple of days during the week.
A little further along the road is Kalamunda , we walked from the B&B and it took about 35 minutes (only a short drive). In Kalamunda you will find a few restaurants including Thai on the Hill (very nice), as well as a variety of shops, supermarket, fish and chips, visitor centre etc.
Perth was about 30minutes drive away, Geoff did say getting there by train was easy too.
We had a thoroughly enjoyable time at Grandview, and would most definitely choose to stay again.
Thank you Geoff and Leanne.

I stayed here for a night and our host could not have been more friendly, accommodating & supportive. Fabulous views. An eclectic array of collectors items on display in the living area. Great conversation.

Grandview B&B has the best host we experienced in Australia! Geoff and Leanne are very welcoming and nothing is too much trouble (including taking a picture apart-don't ask?!) The view from their deck of the Perth skyline is amazing especially at night. The rooms are comfortable one larger room with ensuite and one with a private bathroom. The electric blankets were very welcome. An extensive continental breakfast served in the dining room was very tasty. Grandview is decorated in a really interesting style with lots of music memorabilia, a phone box and petrol pump in the lounge. We liked it so much we booked in again a few days later! Gooseberry Hill is near to the Swan River and Perth city.

It was the last night of our one-week stay in Perth. Feeling tired driving 5 hours from Pemberton, we were just looking for a room with proper heating and a nice bed. But we were being greeted with much much more..

Geoff, the host had been waiting for us the whole day as he does not know what time we arrive. He greeted us with his big smile and nice warm tea. We felt so at home and sat down to chat and laugh, forgot all about unpacking or tireness. He told us where to go for a nice walk, and helped us booked for dinner at the "Best Italian Restaurant" (really yummy:) on the hill, which is ony 5 min drive from his house.

The room was big and comfortable, overlooking a beautiful hill and Perth city at the far end. The shower was nice and warm. The surrounding was so beautiful. We took our evening walk before dinner and saw rabbits, pretty colourful birds, wild flowers,

Geoff's house has a nice swimming pool but we did not take a dip since it was winter, There were lavenders in his garden and yellow and whilte wild daffodils..
We only stayed for a night, but there were so much memories to take home. If we go to Perth again, we will surely stay in Grandview for more nights :)
