“Lovely friendly Hotel conveniently located.”
Reviewed 25 May 2010

Having stayed in Sullivans Hotel for four nights in April, I cannot understand the negartive reviews. We found it to be a lovely, comfortable and friendly place, with rooms being serviced every day. Little added touches like chocolate being left in the room every day was a lovely treat. Free bikes for anyone who wanted to sight see, availing of the miles or cycle paths around the city was also a bonus. Irma on reception could not be nicer, and told us about nearby places to visit, which were easily accessable by train. As far as the smell of cat pee, not once did my husband and I get even the slightest sniff. I would admit that the air conditioning is a bit noisy, and would have to be turned off at night if one were a light sleeper, but we had a nice room with a comfy bed . As far as the breakfasts go, we throughly enjoyed them every morning, and felt they were great value, especially the full breakfast, and the dining room staff was very friendly and cheerful. The location is superb, near Kings Park, and while the CAT blue bus stops outside the hotel which is very convenient, we walked to the city after the first morning. The walk from the hotel by river is a lovely walk, and if one were up for it, there are fitness machines placed in two seperate green areas along the walkway, where one can work out for free. The possibility of our flight being cancelled due to the erupting volcano was a problem for us for a couple of days, but having spoken again to Irma, she said it was no problem to book us in for a extended stay, and we could cancel at little notice, without any further cost. We would certainly stay there again, and would recommend to a friend.

Previous reviewers are correct... dirty corridors and smelly. BASIC amenities in the room, acceptable but do not buy the breakfast (not value for money at all). SERVICE from the staff is basic -both at the front desk and elsewhere! Do not expect someone to help you with your luggage! Also depending on who it is manning the front desk, local knowledge is variable... so research for yourself on bus schedules, destination in advance.
Perth has FREE buses in the CBD... so getting to the Convention Center (10 mins walk) on the Blue CAT bus is easy -but this services stops by 1800+hrs. Other buses exist but not so convenient! The "FREE" internet is limited to 100MB per 24 hrs... which is not enough in today's day to day need for most of us. Additional MBs is very expensive.
The swimming pool is more for children! Find somewhere else if you have time!

Stayed here for 2 nights and wouldn't come back to be honest. As other reviews have pointed out before the rooms and corridors smell of cat-pee and it's quite a long walk to the CBD with the last bus at 6:20pm.
We booked a 2-bedroom apartment which is in fact two separate rooms with one of them having a kitchenette. Strangely enough you are not allowed to bring any food or drinks into the hotel, so what's the kitchenette for then ??? Free Wifi is limited to 100MB per day, a bit stingy, isn't it?
Double bed was very small and room very cramped leaving absolutely no space to move around. Shower is a joke really, it's like standing outside on a foggy morning and waiting to get wet, didn't work for us. Keep looking for other options...

We booked a family room for two children and two adults. We were only planning to stay two nights on way to Albany and when we saw the cramped room and basic bathroom we were glad we didn't stay any longer. We also found one of the reception staff very unfriendly and unhelpful. Not one smile. Unfortunately we left something in the room and when we called the hotel, the same person was rude and would not get someone to look for it unless we promised to pay postage. After several phone calls and request to talk to the manager she relented. Very disappointing.

Rooms very poor,dirty,allegedly had a deluxe room,would hate to imagine what the rest were like.If there was a redeeming feature it was that the breakfast was O.K.Bar service by young lady in wellington boots as she was scrubbing somewhere at the same time--certainly not anywere we saw!!!!

My husband and I stayed at Sullivans for 3 nights. We loved it! The rooms were comfortable and cozy. Irma at the front desk was so nice and helpful. The hotel is within walking distance from Kings Park, as well as the city center. They also had free bicycles for use and we were able to get around town easily by using all of the nice bike paths. We would definitely go back!

This hotel was booked as recommended by the conference organisers I have informed them of the appalling place. It was booked as a base by my employers on the recommendation & the website it was smelly old smelling of cat urine,no iron or ironing board in the room had to hunt for the hairdryer,wardrobe small housed the fridge could not hang up clothes as too small when I did my dress was covered in dust.Towels were almost threadbare had to use both to get myself dry. aircon was old had to almost wind it up. the hotel did not resemble the website pictures.When we arrived we had to sign a form to say we would not bring in alcohol or food as there was a bar. it was a cross between Fawlty Towers & students accomodation almost expected Manuel to appear!!!
