I stayed here for one night, a spur of the moment thing. The lady on the phone explained the room options to me simply and fairly well. Excellent location in front of Guildford train station and close to James Street shops (though the food in Guildford is mediocre; go for the architecture!). The room was clean, spacious and was clearly... More

Great location, comfortable, clean and friendly. This is a really lovely place to stay if you're heading to Guildford. I didn't realise it has a pool or we'd have definitely made use of it as the day we arrived was in the high 30's °C! Would stay here again for sure.

Checked in by super friendly owner. Very welcoming. It was a bit of a strange set up. The 'suite' was below the other rooms and it was two rooms separated by an open area. One room was a large bedroom with a queen, two singles and a nice lounge area. The other room on the other side of the open... More

My husband and I spent one night at the Guildford River Retreat and we really enjoyed it. The receptionist was so friendly and welcoming, and she even upgraded our room. The room was fairly standard and facilities were clean and all that we needed for our stay. The actual location is great, walking distance to the Guildford Hotel and nearby... More

We only stayed one night as we used this place as a stopover before flying out next day, as it is close to the airport. We glad we got their early afternoon as we then had time to explore the township of Guildford, which has some wonderful heritage houses and buildings. The hotel is one of those heritage homes, that... More

My boyfriend and I came here after 3 weeks of staying in a camper van. It was such a charm, and perfectly located near our van rental and airport. It was spotless, I mean spotless! Really nicely decorated, with wifi and tv! The backyard has a nice garden, fruit trees and a chicken coop. We got fresh milk for our... More

We found the Guildford River Retreat outrageously overpriced was $198 a night a Monday night and not during school holidays. It was a very basic room which was tired and old with creaky floor boards and the teabag dish none too clean, view of a contraction over the road. We booked in as it was near to the airport and...

Located to the north of Perth Airport and near the start of the Swan Valley wine and food region, this place is well located for those needing to be on the north side of Perth and a great alternative to larger impersonal hotel/motels. A beautiful old residence that has had sympathetic extensions added to provide a number of guest rooms,... More
