The proprietors, Nola & Jim, were superb hosts- charming, considerate, courteous and helpful.
The accomodation is first-class. We had a lovely bedroom with access to a veranda overlooking the well-maintained garden. There was exclusive access to a delightful and large siting room which was well equipped. Adjacent the sitting room was the bathroom, toilet and laundry room.
Breakfast was excellent with a choice of home cooked options. Any of the choices we made were delicious; in particular Nola's own-recipe porridge was fabulous.
Although Exley House is situated in Nedlands to the west of Perth, it is very easy to get to the city via public transport. The bus stop is a five-minute walk from the B&B.
We stayed here since we were visiting our daughter who was staying in Cottesloe. However, it would greatly suit anyone who was visiting Perth.
There are plenty of restaurants in the area.
Overall, this B&B is highly recommended.
