Mont Clare Boutique Apartments
Ranked #47 of 66 Hotels in Perth
Reviewed 30 September 2013

We were 2 couples travelling together so booked a 2-bedroom / 2-bathroom apartment. On arrival the room stank of smoke and we discovered there were indeed 2 bathrooms except the en-suite had a bath but no shower. When we voiced our concerns with the service desk, we were rudely told that the apartments were all "non-smoking" however, they did offer us a room freshener which we had to have switched on during the whole time (5 days) to keep the fumes at bay. The issue of only 1 shower was met with indifference - apparently all apartments are the same, i.e. only 1 shower per apartment but we could use the hand-held shower head in the bath cabinet.

The advertisement for this complex is very misleading , - this is certainly not 4-star accommodation. The hallways smelt stale, furniture was very tired, and the apartment was not particularly clean. They offer free car parking but the carpark has limited bays and on one occasion we were forced to park on the street instead.
The only thing going for it was the location as it was on the free red-bus line and only about 10 mins walk to the mall. We certainly won't be staying at this place again.

We were delighted with the spacious apartment for 4 of us. However, the smell of smoke was overpowering. It was in the carpet and all the soft furnishings and hit you when you walked in. The second bedroom had no windows and we could not freshen the room up. Shame as otherwise a lovely space, a little shabby but clean.

Room Tip: Ensure it is a non smoking room

Stayed in the 3 rooms apartments . Two of the rooms seem to be partioned off with no windows at all. Faulty cover of the washing machine that was in one of the toilets of the rooms tend to slid off very badly when the machine was spinning. Can even see the wires inside.We have to place something heavy on top to stop it from dropping.The fan in this room was spinning with loud creaking sounds as if it would drop anytime.Should do maintenance checks regularly.

Having stayed in various accomodation throughout Australia and parts of the world, I can guarantee you this is not a Boutique Hotel.

Since when does a 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom apartment only have 1 shower ????
Since when does the 2nd bedroom exist because you sectioned off part of the dining room and your source of air in the room is to have air come in from 2 standard small air vents (useless) or open the door - sorry did I mention that there were 2 couples in this accomodation ??
Since when does a Non-Smoking apartment have their rooms smelling of smoke when you fiirst enter the room ????

The answer to these questions is "Monte Clare Does".

The only positive is that car parking is provided.

Do yourself a favour and use the accomodation $$$$ to go somethere else.

We have just had a fantastic stay at the Mont Clare Boutique Apartments. The location is truly in the middle of everything that we wanted to do. The reception staff were fantastic and they had a wealth of knowledge. They gave us great recommendations of places to go. We were able to prepare our own meals in our apartments as the kitchen has everything. We made use of the gym but it was a bit too cold to swim. Who would have thought it would rain so much in Perth. Would definitely recommend this great stay.

Very disappointed in accommodation. Very dated, dirty and ensuite bathroom had a bath and fittings for a shower which wasn't connected! Smell of stale food when you came out of the lift to walk to your apartment.
However, on the positive side it is close to the WACA and Red Cat bus service which takes you to the city. The cafe over the road was great with good food at a reasonable price.

Stayed there for 3 days - travel to Perth on a regular basis for work and this is easily the worst place I've stayed in Perth. Rooms were dark, funiture and fixtures were cheap and nasty. Nothing was clean. Kitchen and bathroom were dirty and everything just felt greasy. The hallway stank like week old food and there were numerous stains on the carpet. Front door handle felt like it was about to fall off (obviously someone had tried to force the door at some point).

No service. A number of rude flyers dotted around the apartment, telling people not to "party". I understand Perth is a mining town and people can get a bit rowdy, but given the level of service, the poor cleanliness and the generally poor condition of the apartments, I doubt anyone would be able to tell if you had "partied"!

We (as a firm) rented five apartments in the complex, and all five apartments were equally poor. I don't recommend you stay there. There are much better places in Perth for the same money. The only thing I can recommend is the location - good pubs and shops nearby.
