We booked a room at this place because of its proximity to Perth city and the reasonable price. To our surprise, the room is big and comes with a kitchenette. There is a queen bed and a single bed and can accommodate 3 persons comfortably. Food places and a IGA Express are within walking distance. We feel absolutely safe. The... More

The Great Eastern is a sprawling complex set across a number of levels in three (or four or five) buildings. So I expect guests' experiences with their rooms might vary enormously, depending on the room or the building they got. Parking is on a first-in, best dressed basis but it seemed to be OK - there was always to be... More

Great Location, close enough to the airport without being too close. Clean, quiet and comfortable. Staff friendly and helpful. Within walking distance of restaurants and pubs. Would recommend and we will certainly stay there again.

We stayed here after flying in from NZ & before flying out again a week later. The rooms were a bit dated, & so was the bathroom. Bathroom was small, room was reasonable size. Beds were comfy.

I stayed here for one night and found the staff to be very nice and accomodating. My room was quite big and was very neat and tidy. The "bacon & eggs" breakfast was also very good and they even supplied fresh milk for coffee!

The location is great for access to the City (a bus stop just outside). Plenty of space for parking. Rooms are in need of painting and a general makeover, but they were clean and had everything you needed, most of all the beds are comfortable and the showers are hot. The staff are amazingly helpful. We stayed on the ground... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Great Eastern Motor Lodge offers luxurious, value for money, accommodation to families, business people, transit visitors and the holiday maker. We are situated for maximum convenience, midway between the city and the domestic airport, within close proximity of every service. There are 200 rooms in all, ranging from motel suites and bed-sitters to one-bedroom suites and two-bedroom suites for families, plus rooms with spas. Children are welcome with cots and high chairs being available on request. One feature of the complex is that most of the beautifully appointed suites have a fully equipped kitchen, including crockery and cutlery so guests may do their own cooking in preference to dining in restaurants, an expensive addition to any holiday. However for the business person, there are a number of restaurants within easy walking distance of the lodge - the city centre is only minutes away. Fully cooked breakfasts are available on request. Each fully furnished and fully serviced suite is equipped with remote controlled television, radio and reverse cycle air-conditioning. The complex has full laundry facilities available, same day dry-cleaning and ample free parking for cars. Twenty four hour reception is available seven days a week. Free wireless Internet and free FOXTEL is available in our rooms and there is internet and printing facilities available in our Business Centre in reception. ... more   less
