Where to Stay in Perth for a long weekend

I was offered a one night complimentary stay at The Melbourne Hotel, and ended up paying and staying on for another two nights because we didn’t want to leave! 

It’s a great location for a weekend away in the city, or for a couple of nights if you’re on a midweek business trip.

We loved the bedroom, particularly the bed which was as big as the Southern Sea, and really comfortable.

Not only did we adore the bedroom, which was light, bright and modern, yet not far from a sense of the past, but we also enjoyed the huge shower and bathroom too.

The Melbourne Hotel offers both heritage and contemporary guest rooms which really do provide a sanctuary from the bustling CBD just outside the hotel’s walls.

I really liked the creative juxtaposition of new and old. This hotel has lost none of the historic street frontage during recent renovations and now blends modern with heritage in an unassuming way.  

The cost of the guest rooms is reasonable for the quality. Expect modern, clean, comfortable bedrooms with great showers and plenty of space which provide a lovely sanctuary from the buzz of the city.  

Think Sealy Posturepedic beds with premium linen, L’Occitane bath amenities, tech-savvy perks like high-speed Wi-Fi, Bluetooth door entry, TVs with free movies and personal gadget connectivity.

Simple yet delightful surprises.  

On the corner of Hay and Milligan Streets in the heart of Perth CBD, The Melbourne Hotel has been a part of the local character and culture since 1897.

The Hotel pays tribute to the grand hotels of yesteryear, when travel meant something special. And there is something very special about being able to step back in time, and yet have access to all the comforts and amenities of the modern world too.
