We were passing the hotel and stopped here for Easter Sunday lunch as it advertised a reasonably priced meal. My wife ordered the vegetarian spaghetti and commented that it was the best spaghetti she had eaten, flavorsome and not overpowered by sauce. It was supplemented by very good service. We also ordered wine which was well priced and provided with...

I like the location of the hotel. Easy access to hay st and murray st malls- target, woolworths, meyers, david jones - perth CAT lines buses, subway restaurant, mc d, souvenior shops. All types of restaurants and cafes are within walking distance. The room is just nice for two people. Nothing fancy simple and clean. If they installed a bidet...

The hotel looks good from outside and is in an excellent central location.However the decor of the room is a bit tired looking and smells of smoke.The safe in my room didn't work properly and the shower tap was loose.This is a shame as it could be a top class hotel in an excellent location,but it needs a refurb

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...
