Being a frequent visitor to Perth I have found it harder and harder to secure affordable accommodation without booking weeks in advance and this weeks trip was no exception so my secretary booked me into The Melbourne Hotel. Was very pleasantly surprised! Clean, comfortable, friendly staff, a homely restaurant with good food at an affordable price, good breakfast in the cafe which alsomakes great coffee. As another reviewer has stated it has a character which has not been destroyed by making it a 'ritzy boutique' hotel with ritzy rates to match.
And the internet included in the room rate so that alone makes it the best deal in Perth (where you can pay upto $30/day for internet access).
The only negative is that they really need to sort the wireless coverage across all the rooms and i would give it 5 stars!
Unfortunately next trip am already booked to stay at another 'big brand' hotel. However will be dining at the Melbourne's restaurant and will seriously consider making the Melbourne my regular place to stay in Perth.More
