“Serenity, rest and great value for money”
Reviewed 15 April 2013

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.

Room Tip: There are only three floors, plus the marvellously large penthouse on top, so most rooms are good bu...

King Bed room with real KB (not singles joined), and bed was comfortable. Large Room is made bigger by having the bathroom included. Whilst I enjoyed the extra space in the spa bath - shower, it was a pity that it used a water saver head. The restaurant was great with the Ribs "falling off the bone". Service was a bit slow so take the newspaper with you. Other faults were leaking A/C, no mini bar, no foxtel and just single chairs to watch TV. At $170 it was probably Perth style "value for money".

Room Tip: High floor reduces noise.

We stayed for just one night over the Easter long weekend.
We found the Hotel Northbridge to be quiet and clean the rooms were decent size and comfortable.
The check in staff were efficient and friendly and we had a great meal at the restaurant.
The only issue I had was the shower pressure it was sufficient for one night but not if you wish to wash long hair after a night out.
Will return again as the location is great for any city visit

Last visit to Perth I was disappointed with the way the CBD just died at night, so I went looking for something in Northbridge this time. The options were limited but it didn't matter because Hotel Northbridgebwas excellent. Walking distance to James and William Streets, which were even buzzing on Good Friday while the rest of the city slept. The hotel was also only a short walk to my meeting venues in the west end of the CBD, so it was a great combination for work and pleasure.
I was a little wary of the idea of a "studio bathroom", but this was an excellent room, as you could sit in the spa and watch TV, though of course you can't hear it with the spa running. The toilet was in its own room, so that potential awkwardness was avoided. The bathroom would only be a problem if sharing with a friend.
In all, an excellent hotel with great services. I'll be back.

Came here for valentines day stay, great location, nice and close the Northbridge and the city, staff very friendly and check in was prompt. Huge room, very comfy bed and great spa. Very much enjoyed our stay here and will stay here again.

I continually enjoy my stays at the Northbridge Hotel and are more than happy to recommend it as good value for money.

But two important things to note.

1) There is essentially no sectioned off bathroom. So the shower, which is essentially inside the spa bath, is within the main room. So not a problem if your by yourself OR want to hear/see your better half showering. Otherwise its a bit disconcerting.

2) Its an older style building which is apparent on the outside and the hallways.

That being said the price is always amazing for Perth together with the fact the staff are always lovely.

So I would fully recommend.

I stayed at the Hotel Northbridge for 4 days for work and overall I think it represented reasonable value by Perth standards. The room itself had a spa, which for around $170 per night was a nice inclusion. There was plenty of space in the room and the bed was very comfortable. The room was very quiet. The hotel is about 2km from the Perth CBD but there is good public transport nearby. Apart from the restaurant in the hotel itself (Chimes) there is any number of cafes and restaurants nearby. I like to go swimming in the morning and the Beatty Park swimming pool is in easy walking distance of the hotel. On the down side: its seems you have to wait for an eternity for the lift to come! If you choose to park there is a $10 a day fee. There was a balcony which you couldn't walk out onto. The continental breakfast in the restaurant is a bit limited and the selection on offer is less than imaginative! Nevertheless, I'd say this hotel beats a lot of the flash hotels in the CBD and is a good option.

Room Tip: Leave your car somewhere else and avoid the parking fee. Public transport is cheap and will get you...
