I picked this Hotel for 3 reasons. 1) the Playground, 2) cooking facilities and 3) The location.
The Playground far exceeded my expectations(photos attached) I travelled with my teenage daughters and my niece's 4 children 10 - 4 yo. I was expecting a smallish playground, so was very shock to see the large size of it. It was really Magical, even the 7Yo said it was magical. Lots of nooks and crannies to explore. With a BBQ and lots of tables, we had 2 dinners there and also cooked pancakes for Brekkie one morning. With 4 very run a about kids to keep occupied the playground was just perfect.
2)cooking facilities- They were okay in the room. The 2 bedrooms have their own laundry. This was great for my niece and her 4 kids. I used the dryer a lot to dry our towels.
3)Location- Just great, 2 FREE bus stops out from Perth. 1 train station out. The bus stops right next to the Hotel and across the road. The hotel is across the road from Harbour Town. Great place to shop, but no supermarket there. The hotel does have quite a reasonable grocery shop. My niece even bought made up rolls from the freezer to heat up for her 4 kids. I noticed a pile of freezer food to heat up.
The cons- as previous reviews have noted about the noise. I'm a light sleeper and door bangings did wake me up as did some noise on the Saturday night. Once the weekend was over it wasn't too bad. I can note though I remember door bangings at Crown casino Hotel in Melbourne, and that is a 5 1/2 start Hotel!
yes there wasn't room maintenance, but not a lot of hotel change sheets etc. these days. I changed a few towels along the way. My niece did ask for some more coffee, and on her 2nd request she was knocked back. I thought that was a bit mean!
On our arrival I was told that my niece had the room next to ours- I was rapt as I was hoping for anything just on our floor. But when my niece checked in the following night she was moved to 2 floors above us, way at the other end. I was told that the person in her room asked to stay another night, so they let him, and moved my niece even though I had notes on my file requesting that we be together(or at least near each other). I ranted and raved and after about 1/2 hour or so they said that my niece can have her original room back the next day. When it came to changing rooms there was no mention of her changing, after more ranting and raving she finally got changed. As I hadn't seen my niece and the kids in over 2 years, I really needed for us to be close etc.
