Reviewed 2 December 2013

This hotel is extremely well located in Perth. The service was OK.

The layout, decor and facilities were somewhat dated. For example, the lift is ancient and there are further steps to carry cases up (no assistance was offered with this). Also, you have to go outside and walk along the street for breakfast. Neither of these issues were the end of the world but it all added up to a feeling of things not being quite right.

The breakfast was excellent.

On balance, the location, breakfast and price make this a good choice for a stay in Perth - but you should expect a slightly quirky and dated hotel.

Stayed in room 110 for three nights. Super clean room. Smallish but worked well for us. Beds are on rollers and if you sit down too hard you can find yourself rolling across the floor. Funny but might alarm some fragile bodies. Laundry room could be heard above us. Ask for room away from it. Great outdoor roof area for quiet time. Planters of herbs and flowers. Fridge in room! We walked easily to museums, rottnest ferry, shopping, plus more. No car needed. Happy to have stayed here.

Room Tip: See if you can get roof garden room. Looked very nice. Stay way from underneath laundry room area.

Just stayed 3 nights and found the hotel to be great for our visit to Perth.
We stayed in Room 233 which has a balcony, not the best view across the street of multi storey car park but look left or right and you can watch everyday life going on. Bit of noise from the road but didn't disturb our sleep.
Room is comfortable, clean with everything we needed- bath with overhead shower, to soak in after long day of sightseeing. Hair dryer, toiletries , iced water left in fridge, coffee,tea making facilities , mini bar if you want it.
There is a laundry room ,washing machine (2 dollars, washing powder provided) ,tumble dryer (2 dollars) and iron and ironing board. Great for us as we are travelling for 4 weeks.
We like this hotel because it is run by friendly, knowledgable staff, it's not one of those big impersonal hotels. There are free safety deposit boxes at reception which is manned 24 hours a day.
Breakfast is excellent, will keep you going most of the day which is just as well as it's a very expensive city to eat and drink in! The restaurant reminds us of Betty's Tea Rooms in Harrogate, very much an institution around here, popular with the locals.
The location is excellent, easy walking everywhere. The CAT buses are free and make it easy to get around the city. Trains easy to use to get to Freemantle and beaches.

Spent four nights here and would recommend it. Centrally located beside CBD but is an older building with great character. Room (see below) was reasonable size with a balcony and while a little old in decor, suited our needs. Excellent buffet breakfast that is strongly recommended. Staff very helpful, except for a disinterested night porter on late arrival. That first night we had a spacious interior room with windows high up and onto a dark light well - a bit jail like ! However staff at reception in the morning could not be more helpful and quickly found a new room.
Would also recommend the restaurant, a smorgasbord of great quality and quantity. However the musical entertainment is not a strong point ! Different in a good way from the usual chain hotel.

Room Tip: make sure it is an outside room, even better if one of four with balcony.

the hotel is ideally located for downtown Perth, and it has a multi-storey car park literally across the road

the rooms are tiny, and dated..if you have a lot of luggage, you may find yourself struggling to get to your room, as there are stairs at the strangest places!

the breakfast is just amazing - pastries/bread are stunning, which one would expect given that Miss Maud owns a chain of Swedish bakeries, but I simply overdosed on the mountain of berries that is served every morning..helped down with a pancake or two! (or three...)

Walking into the hotel that was located in close proximity to the Perth CBD, we arrived in Miss Maud Swedish Hotel which had a warm Swedish touch to the entire setting of the hotel building. Check-in was quick and efficient and we moved into our room.

The lift was somewhat rustic and required you to pull two doors open after it arrives upon pressing the button on the side of the lift, as we walked into our room, it looked really simple but had all the basic necessities required, the bed was really comfortable and the entire room was clean, hygienic and tidy. Wi-Fi was a huge plus especially in a city like Perth.

Breakfast next morning was lovely. Delicious Smorgasbord breakfast with lots of choices from scrambled eggs to grilled tomatoes with cheese, sausages, bacon, waffles, fruits, pancakes with cream, blueberries and lingonberries etc.

For the price of AUD$189 I paid per night by e-mailing them directly, it was value for money if you would to calculate that the breakfast buffet alone costs around AUD$27 per pax. Hotels in Perth are also extremely expensive so this was a rather reasonable price.

Service was lovely and efficient. Would definitely return.
