This place is pretty old and tired but it is a budget motel. Its closer to the CBD than the Crowne Plaza and easy walking distance to the Perth Mint. The kitchen has all you need for cooking. Free WiFi seems to only come with some packages. If you have to pay then its quite expensive at $3 an hour...

I stayed 2 nights and although the paintwork and cupboards are dated it was comfortable and clean. There was plenty of utensils for cooking which would have been handy if I had been staying longer. It is within walking distance of the CBD and the new Elizabeth Quay. I would be happy to stay there again.

Accommodation is old but cost effective compared to other serviced apartments in the vicinity. Not what I am normally accustomed to! At the end of the day, the bed and being able to sleep was most important. Very simple kitchen with bad coffee and tea (that's expected). Had to find a nice restaurant for dinner. Just around the corner is...

Reviewed 11 April 2016

very central location - opposite Langley park and close to Elizabeth Quay. I was disappointed as there were a few guests that were behaving inappropriately, and not concerned about the noise and nuisance to others. Might be a one-off but would have been good, if a night person was around.
