Living four and half hours from the state capital means a welcoming city base is often necessary. When overnighting in preparation for a long plane trip, or visiting family and friends in the city, a quiet retreat between adventures is what I'm looking for. Perth is a city where current hotel prices can be astronomical and you cna pay more than you would in central London or Paris! Here in Northbridge, however, just out of the central CBD, but within walking distance of heaps of restaurants, if you allow for a twenty minute stroll, or time your taxi ride well, you are at a very convenient spot in a leafy treelined suburb. If you are too tired to venture far, over the road is a popular Vietnamese restaurant with very efficient service and order by numbers... next door is a well patronised breakfast or brunch cafe called Tarts, crowded with knick knacks, offering the usual newspapers, magazines and tasty snacks. ( I do not usually have the hotel breakfast, although it is available, simply because I enjoy the cafe outdoors atmosphere.)
The hotel itself is very well situated. The rooms are pleasant with windows you can open and comfortably adequate beds. The decor is quite neutral and the rooms offer all the usual services. There is a carpark below (a little crammed in some spots, but free for guests).The peaceful suburb means your sleep will not be interrupted by surging traffic or rowdy crowds. Sometimes the reception staff (only one on duty) sometimes seem to be busy in a back room on computers- are they students studying as well?- but if you need them for a duplicate key card, calling a taxi,or luggage storage, they are helpful. I love arriving at this hotel, knowing for sure that I will have a very satisfactory stay, and not much will have changed. It is reliable, familiar and calm. It is the hotel I always go back to.
