In fairness the room was a bit tired and has seen better days, however the sheets were clean and the bed was comfortable enough (never as good as home), towels were clean. The staff were friendly and helpful. For the price I doubt you could get anything in such a superb location. The room was cleaned each day and to...

Room was sparse, old, but generally clean except for the windows. The view would have been spectacular had I been able to see through the windows, they were filthy. The mini bar was meagre, dusty and the peanuts I did eat were out of date. Breakfast tho included in the compendium was not available. On arrival I was required to...

The hotel is located in a nice position but that's the best part! The building is old, the lights are dim, the paint dirty, the rooms dirty and old, the bed saggy and not comfortable etc... They charge enormous wifi fees and parking fees! THE PLACE IS A DUMP!

My stay here was very unpleasant. The room looks like it has not been renovated in more than 20 years. The Bed was small and uncomfortable. The toilet leaked sewerage every time you flushed. The paint was flaking off the ceiling. The carpet was dirty and ripped. There was no convenient power points so I had to iron my shirts...

Where do I start....bed uncomfortable could feel springs everywhere also had a backwards lean of at least 20 degrees. Windows filthy and curtains packed with dust. Massive stains on carpet. No exhaust fan in bathroom. Bath filthy. No toilet brush. In a word revolting will never stay there again or recommend to anyone.

When I discovered I would be staying here during a major job at Elizabeth Quay, I immediately hopped on here to read the reviews. Reeling from the relentless barrage of negativity, I feared the worst and looked forward to the stay with a resigned apprehension. BUT - I was really pleasantly surprised and am left wondering just how precious some...

Stayed a night at the New Esplanade as was attending a function in the city. Reasonable prices for Perth as Perth is quite expensive. The hotel itself is a tiny little thing with a small lobby. There is parking available fro $30/night. Again, Perth with the expensive parking. The hotel itself is a little old and scrappy with scrapes on...
