The Richardson Hotel — where the stars stay

Thursday, November 20, 2008
The Richardson Hotel & Spa is a five-star property tucked between Perth's CBD and Kings Park. The striking boutique hotel was designed by renowned London architect Sir Terry Farrell.

Already gaining a reputation as one of Perth's best places to stay, it is attracting visiting celebrities who like only the best. P!nk, Christina Aguilera and Gwen Stefani have all been guests.

The eight-storey hotel has 74 rooms and suites, most with balconies and views across the city and Kings Park. Decor is luxurious with plush furnishings and sleek lines blending rich golden colours with tones of beige and beech wood. State-of-the-art technology, excellent facilities and attentive staff make each visit memorable.

Bathrooms have white porcelain walls, marble vanities and separate bath and shower.

The hotel believes that the mini-bar is there to be enjoyed, with prices only 10 percent higher than standard. They even include pre-cooked dinners in the freezer!

The spa was designed for The Richardson by ESPA, known for the use of quality and pure natural ingredients. ESPA skincare products and therapy techniques are indulgent and luxurious.

Opus at The Richardson offers fine dining in a beautifully refined atmosphere. Cuisine has French origins, hints of the Orient and modern Australian flavours. Dinner is served every evening.

So popular is the cuisine, The Richardson has Chef for a Day packages. Unlike most cooking classes, guests have the opportunity to experience the daily operation of a busy à la carte kitchen. You could learn how to prepare dishes such as delicious wontons with fresh Western Australian marrons and maybe a rhubarb bruleé and crumble.

The Richardson Hotel has a no-smoking policy and there are suites catering for disabled persons and with wheelchair accessibility.
