I was excited by the prospect of a lovely old hotel in the middle of Perth city as a change from the normal box rooms on offer. The exterior of the building is gorgeous and maintains many of the original Victorian features including a wrap around veranda on the 1st floor with iron lacing. The entrance to the reception area...

This was our second stay at The Melbourne. The room was nicely decorated with french doors leading onto the balcony, where we shared a bottle of champagne for our wedding anniversary. The hotel was central to the restaurant we were going to and Perth city. The bathroom and ammenities were clean and functional. The bed was made up of two...

Clearly most reviews here are based on the location - which is probably fine in the week but nothing special on Sunday. This hotel can be best described as a motel or student accommodation - I was put into a room with no windows at all and whilst clean, it felt so unhomely and dead that I couldn't face ordering...

The location is brilliant especially if you want to enjoy the city and the many bars and cafes etc. The price is very good however the rooms, and really the whole place, is just a bit tired. Its a shame as it is such a beautiful old hotel and could be so nice with a bit of TLC. I still...

I have been travelling to Perth for nearly twenty years. This is a great find which was suggested to be by a local. It is excellent value for money, well located and helpful and friendly staff. It is an old pub from the 1800s but the rooms have been refurbished to provide comfortable modern accommodation but inside an historic building....

This was the first hotel we stayed at during our visit to Perth. The hotel looks impressive and grand on the outside. It's centrally located at Hay Street and opposite a free CAT bus stop. We enjoyed eating at the Pasta Cup restaurant right opposite the hotel. This hotel is also conveniently located near two car rentals (if you need...

We stayed here for New Years Eve and after an initial "mixup" with our room, we thoroughly enjoyed the stay, highly recommend the "Suite Rooms" they are bigger and open up onto a common veranda, we sat here the next morning overlooking a wonderfully quite CBD and ate our continental breakfast which was delivered to our room as the restaurant...

Referred to as 'meeting room one' by us in the office across the street, The Melbourne will meet your thirsty needs with anything you could want in a city pub. Sports are on a number of televisions when it's a good game and the space in the room allows for larger groups. Not somewhere I would go on my own/...

We stayed at The Melbourne recently as it was a leisurely 5 minute stroll to the Perth Arena where we were attending the Muse concert. Our superior room was spacious and very clean. The room had robes, tea/coffee facilities & the usual amenities. The fittings were quite charming, especially the curtains and small chandelier. French doors led onto the wide...

“There may be some better rooms in the hotel. We didn't ask because we were exhausted after our journey and didn't want the hassle of moving all of our stuff. I would definitely avoid the loft rooms.”
