“A Mixed Bag”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 May 2012

Our requirements for our 10 day stay in Perth was two bedroomed accommodation with two bathrooms, cooking facilities an out door area and prefereably in a quiet area close to the CBD. Bailey's Motel met that criteria admirably. We were quite comfortable in our two units with interconnecting doors so that our teenage daughters had their own space (and so did we) We were on the second floor and our balcony overlooked the carparking area and then towards the CBD so we had a nice view of the highrise city lights. Our kitchen consisted of a kitchen bench, microwave, toaster and a small oven with an element on top - I managed to cook nine meals on it for a family - it reminded me a bit of camping, you rough it a little because that is all you have (I took my own frying pan so that I was guaranteed of a decent cooking insturment) The motel is conveniently located to a number of bus stops (the CAT system which is free and extremely well run) so getting around was great. The street was mostly quiet but as we were opposite a building site it did get noisy first thing in the morning during the week but it was quiet on Sunday. It didn't really bother us as we are early risers but they do start at 7am. The rooms were clean on the surface - the bed linen was of a reasonably good quality, our rooms were serviced daily with clean towels provided. We made use of the pool as it was still on the warm side for us (May weather was on average 23 degrees). Thats the good points. The down side of the accommodation was the towels smelt like kitchen fat - I walked past a door and saw a pile of towels in the kitchen area so I am assuming they are folded in the vacinity of the restaurant kitchen and have picked up the cooking odours - not very pleasant after a shower! The air conditioning units and the fans in the bathrooms were absolutly filthy so were the ceiling fans. The ceiling fan in our room (22) went but only when the light was on so pity help anyone who wants the fan on at night in summer - the manager said that it had been wired incorrectly and the electrician was due this week - judging by the dust buildup on the fan I would say that this was a standard answer to our common complaint. It was really annoying, especially once it got cooler at night as you wanted the lights on but no fan. To the Management - for goodness sake get it fixed!. The cleanliness of the rooms left a bit to be desired, the net curtains need a good wash as they are brown with dust, the edges of the head boards need to be cleaned and so the the top of the tiles in the bathrooms and the skirting boards - these are all areas easily accesable for the cleaner and take two minutes to do but are so obvious to the tenant that it gives the place a slightly seedy appearance. Yes the rooms have been refurbished but I would say that it is some time ago. If the management could clean the rooms better it would be a very good place to stay but there it little attention to detail and it shows. If I had to I would stay again as it did meet our criteria and it was affordably priced compared to other accommodation in Perth. If you are looking for somewhere to stay, this would be a safe bet but don't have high expectations.

Room Tip: Be wary of where you stay in summer as our rooms (21 and 22) got the afternoon sun and would be very...

Our stay in Bailey's of 4 nights was good. Nice and clean room with complimentary tea/coffee making facilities. Towels and toiletries were changed daily and replenished. Our bedroom located on the ground floor overlooks the lovely Wellington Park.

The room has a toaster, microwave and a mini fridge. This is a non-smoking hotel and has a swimming pool (we did not have the time to use it). The parking compound is spacious with a few common wooden tables/benches.

This hotel is strategically located and is within walking distance to the free RED/BLUE CAT service stops and takes less than 10 minutes to arrive Perth CBD.

Staff were friendly, courteous and helpful.

There is an Italian restaurant adjoining the hotel where breakfast is served. The restaurant seems very busy in the evenings.

As we have stayed in other hotels in Perth CBD, we would certainly recommend this hotel for its strategic location, cleanliness and value for money.

Room Tip: This is a 2-storey building and ground floor rooms recommended if you have loads of luggage.

Good value hotel. Exceptionally clean rooms, but small. Stayed here twice now and the first time great but the second time they got my booking date wrong. I was treated like it was my fault and given the Managers room which was TINY. However....this hotel can be recommended in it's cleanliness and location. The fact u get to park ur car there to makes it great value...would recommend!

Baileys Parkside Is a traditional, ageing two-storey motel located on a relatively quiet urban road opposite a large park, and about 10 mins walk from Perth CBD. Unfortunately there was an active building site over a side road and facing the motel - and our room - which generated intrusive noise from about 7am each morning. The motel has free off-road parking outside the room blocks. There is an attached restaurant serving breakfast and dinner, a Guest Laundry and a small, tired swimming pool with leaves floating in it and ripped floor covering on the pool surround which looked to be a trip hazard. We did not use these facilities.
Our room was on the first floor of one of the motel blocks, with a small outside balcony overlooking the swimming pool and opposite the building site. The room was spacious with a queen bed and desk/dressing table, and there was a small adjoining kitchenette with table and two chairs. The kitchenette was equipped with fridge, microwave, small (and rather dirty-looking) cooker, kettle and toaster. There was a separate ensuite shower room. There was a small flat-screen TV with the usual free-to-air channels. The motel did not have WIFI Internet access at all - only a cable connection in the room available for a fee of $16 per day or $68 per week. The room seemed to have very thin walls and a locked connecting door to the neighbouring unit, through both of which you could hear every conversation and TV programme.
The room decor was neutral and the fitted furniture seemed quite new. Unfortunately, the patchy walls, chipped and scuffed paintwork, tired bed covering, grey-coloured white towels and smelly tea towel gave the room a shabby appearance and feel. Even worse, the room was dirty on arrival, and left uncleaned on our second day. We got back at 6pm to discover an unmade bed, un-vacuumed carpet, uncleaned bathroom and only half our towels replaced. To be fair, we received an apology from the front desk, who blamed 'problems with housekeeping', and someone came to clean the room within 10 mins. Nevertheless, our impression of this motel is that it is run on a shoe-string - one tiny bar of soap between two people for two days - with poor standards of cleanliness and sloppy service. The only reason to stay here would be its central location, but it's not cheap and the downsides far outweigh the benefits of its location. Don't stay here!!!

Booked using groupon voucher for $79, I did not expect much, this place was fine. The room was clean, sheets and towels were clean, free parking, mini fridge, tea kettle and toaster, hot water for shower, it was a fine motel to stay at for 1 night. Staff were friendly and helpful.
