If you're planning a trip across the Nullarbor, or if you already live in Western Australia, we've found some terrific hotels for you, in or close to the city of Perth.
The All Seasons Sorrento Beach Resort is about 20 minutes on the freeway north of the city, and is right across the road from the beach. It has an Italian restaurant, sauna, spa, pool and a barbecue area. Just 500m from Underwater World, close to the Rottnest Island ferry and about seven minutes from shops and cinemas, the All Seasons is a mix of 3Ã‚Â½- and four-star accommodation.
The Terrace Hotel is on the eastern edge of the city overlooking the Swan River, and is within walking distance of the city and the WACA. The Terrace serves a buffet breakfast, has an ÃƒÂ la carte restaurant, cocktail bar, in-house movies, travel agent, hairdresser and florist. It is disabled-friendly and has an open-plan family room.
Sullivans is a small European-style hotel, family-owned and operated. It is surrounded by parks, including the beautiful Kings Park, and there are bicycles available to explore the parks. They offer treats of chocolates and fruit, in-house movies and free car parking. Sullivans has a pool with barbecue area, restaurant, bar, room service, luggage store, and there are buses at the door to the city and Cottesloe Beach.
The Emerald Hotel is in Perth's CBD and retail district, close to Kings Park and the Swan River. It is about 15 minutes to a choice of beaches and 20 minutes to the Swan Valley. The Emerald has just 100 rooms, and has a bar and grill, gymnasium, sauna, spa, parking, on-site deli and guest laundry. There are self-catering facilities in each room, free in-house movies, television and air-conditioning. There are also rooms for disabled visitors.
The Wentworth Plaza Hotel in right at the Hay Street Mall, close to buses and railway. It was built as a hotel in 1929 and was refurbished in 1986, retaining the beauty of its original era. Bobby Dazzler's Restaurant and Bar has an Australian theme, and there's an English-style pub with 33 types of beer on tap.
Other hotels well worth mentioning are the Perth City Hotel, the All Seasons Chateau Hotel and The Kings Perth Hotel (all in Hay Street), and the Hotel Ibis, which is close to Northbridge. Their rates may be a little higher than $100 a night.
