It's all about perspective isn't it? If you consider that this is a 3 1/2 star holiday apartment, and set your expectations accordingly, you would then be able to enjoy this hotel for what it is. For a 3 1/2 star place, my expectation is for it to be at least clean, comfortable and suitably furnished. I have stayed in this hotel 4 times over the last 12 years. This time I was there after a 5 years break. But it still ticks the boxes for me.
Admittedly, the furniture might have been a little old, at least they still looked clean and pleasing. The bedrooms were also comfortable and welcoming. The kitchenette, washing machine and dryer are additional comforts that came with the apartment. The management may well need to overhaul the place shortly, but for the time being I think it is still passable. I have most definitely stayed in worse 3 1/2 apartments in Perth.
One additional thing: this place has a small indoor swimming pool and free parking. Definitely a plus point for a 3 1/2 star establishment in my books (can't say the same for some 5 stars accomodation)
I'm giving this 3 stars for being at least a decent 3 1/2 stars accommodation
