5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 February 2011

An really great place to stay if you are visiting Perth. The rooms are large with excellent facilities and without exception the staff did everything to make our stay very enjoyable.

We stayed at this hotel for five nights,the level of service was exceptional.The hotel is situated just out of the city surrounded by offices but on the free CAT bus service which is superb.The room was like an appartment with fridge,freezer,coffee maker and even a microwave.The restaurant was very good,we ate in the hotel one night and the taster menu was a delight.All in all,agreat experience and we watched the Australia Day fireworks from our balcony,avoiding the 300,000 people in the city!

Thank you nid1950 for your feedback and I was delighted to read that we were able to deliver a consistently high level of service during your five night stay. As noted, we are located on the financial district border (less than a mile) in a city that spans 2,070 square miles - about 300 square miles larger than Los Angeles. One of the benefits of our location is the proximity to Kings Park, the free CAT bus service and being close to Subiaco, one of the upmarket residential areas in Perth with a good selection of boutique shops, bars and restaurants. I was also glad, and a little surprised, that you managed to see the fireworks from the hotel balcony - they must have send the fireworks higher this year as normally the canopy of Kings Park obscures the view...maybe Concierge spoke to the pyrotechnics for you! Thank you again for your kind words and we look forward to welcoming you back.

Helpful friendly service. All requests willingly and efficiently fulfilled. Asked for fresh milk from housekeeping received immediately - no waiting around for half an hour like other hotels

We arrived at The Richardson tired and grumpy after enduring record heat levels elsewhere. This was our first time in the city of Perth and the staff couldn't have been nicer - they booked dinner for us that night and then went about helping us organize our day for Australia Day the next day. They booked us a day on the beach and arranged a picnic for us to take to the firework display - complete with rug!
All the staff were highly efficient and charming and I cannot recommend this hotel highly enough to anyone who is visiting Perth.

a great place, the staff do not know how to say "no". This well positioned hotel has clearly got the art of delegation weighed off. All members of staff we interracted with were able to make a decision, were always able to find a way to say yes and clearly cared about our enjoyment. Cannot rate it highly enough and we stay in about 30 hotels a year around the world. Well done The Richardson!! Mike and Caroline

We stayed here for 3 nights at the beginning of a 4 week trip to WA, and 1 night at the end of our trip. Initially we thought it seemed a bit out of the way, but as we settled down we realised it is an ideal location. 5 mins walk to Kings Park, in a very quiet suburb, 15 mins walk to some great restuarants in Subiaco and 10 mins by the free bus service into central Perth.
Very welcoming staff who knew who we were and asked after our plans and offered suggestions. Very highly rated restuarant ( Opus ) at the hotel although we only had breakfast there. Recommend paying in your package for full breakfast...excellent and great when jet lagged and starving at 7 am...we definately got moneys-worth!
Rooms great, perhaps sl smaller than others we had in WA but well equiped with full cooking facilities, good coffee machine ( coffee free ) big fridge and washing machine. All very clean and stylish. Free internet . Lovely bathrooms. We had a 2 bed suite. Ideal for me , husband and 2 boys age 11 and 13.
Pool area very nice, indoor but small outside terrace with comfy sunbeds ( rare in WA!!). Sun on outside terrace in a morning in Dec / Jan ( important for sunworshipers like me). Fantastic equipped gym and looked like nice spa. Also in hotel small lounge area, but otherwise not a lot of public space.
We would recommend Cottesloe Beach, Freemantle ( go on ferry), a walk round central Perth and Perth zoo ( go see the elephant show ). We didn't have a car for our first 3 n which was ok, but think prob better with one. be aware hotel charges $30 / n for parking, but is possible to park on street ( meters ).
