This is a charming B&B not far from Perth Airport. The rooms are luxuriously appointed and extremely comfortable. The owners are fairly new to owning and operating a B&B, so there are still some teething issues, but overall we were quite impressed with the accommodation and would happily stay again.
We stayed on two separate occasions for one night on arrival in Perth and one night before we left Perth. We stayed in The Dikler and in Phar Lap.
*very high quality linen made for an extremely comfortable night's sleep
*large flat screen tvs in each room
*free wi fi
*attractive and newly refurbished property with an excellent kitchen at your disposal, sitting rooms, a pool and large grounds
*a rural feel but only 18km from the city and maybe 10km from the airport
*the owners are a nice, friendly couple
*you help yourself to breakfast in the morning, which was a plus for us as we could come and go as we pleased
*the guests quarters are completely separate from the owner's quarters, so you don't feel like your treating on each other's toes.
*excellent value for money
*Internet reception in the area is a bit unreliable
*The property is a bit hard to spot if you are arriving after dark. They warned us about this and provided some directions. They have also put up a reflective street number sign to assist people in finding the place. An illuminated sign would be useful
*there is a shared bathroom. This was not an issue for us as the bathroom was huge, clean and in excellent condition and we never had any issues with someone else being in the bathroom when we wanted to use it.
*The fruit in the fruit bowl could have been fresher. The bananas were overripe. The fruit was still edible, but could have looked more appealing
*the second time we stayed, I think they forgot to remove the previous occupant's used towels from the back of the door
*if you are looking for a place to stay that is close to restaurants or other attractions, this may not be a good option. We had a car and brought some food with us, so it was fine.
*There were a few instances in which we thought their customer service could have been improved.
1. When making the booking we had to ask for a confirmation email.
2. When we arrived the first time we found our room had been configured as two single beds, which is not the ideal configuration for a married couple. On the website it says the room can be configured as two single or as a king size bed. When we said we enquired about the configuration, they said it was too much hassle to change the configuration and we hadn't specified that we wanted it set up as a king when we booked. We had to do quite a bit of prompting before they changed us to a room with a king sized bed. However the next time we came they remembered our preference and the process was a lot smoother
All in all, we were very happy with our stay and would gladly stay here again.
