I've stayed here several times and will likely do so again in future. This is one property that I would reallly like to give 3.5 rating instead of 4 ... it's just not quite "very good", though if you can find a sub-$175/night rate it edges into the very good value category. It is definitely not a +$200/night hotel. (Remember, this is Australia, so hotels are ridiculously high priced for their quality.)
The rooms are ok size, beds & pillows are comfortable, shower has plenty of pressure & hot water and everything is clean. Towels are small & not particularly soft. The in-room fridge, microwave and sink come in handy as I usually grab takeway as soon as I land then eat it later in the evening or first thing in the morning.
Reception staff have always been friendly & efficient.
Complimentary shuttle service (I think starts at 4am from the hotel, not sure about the last flight arriving) is ONLY to/from T3 & T4 terminals so if you're arriving at the international terminal or T2, where many regional flights end up, you'll have to do the cab thing - which is expensive. Here's a link to "which terminal" if you aren't sure: http://www.perthairport.com.au/PassengerInformation/WhichTerminal.aspx You need to ring reception when you collect your luggage before they will come get you - they will not meet your flight.
I have never received free WiFi access, so good on those reviewers who have scored this bonus. This has always been a negative aspect of this place but maybe it's changing. Definitely ask when you book and arrive to see if you can get access, too.
It seems to be a popular hotel for the FIFO workers and there were people coming and going at all hours on a Sunday night. The noise from the hallway does carry into the room so know going in that it isn't the quiestest hotel you've probably ever stayed in.
Overall, this is a solid choice for an overnight if you get a good rate. If I had to pay well over $200/night for this place, I'd be tempted to look elsewhere.
