Stayed at the Parmelia Hilton, Perth two weeks ago for 6 days at the end of May and hit lucky with the autumn weather – sunny and warm every day with cool evenings when the sun went down. Although the hotel is quite old, we were pleasantly surprised and thought it was in a good location, just about 10 mins walk from the city centre and also Swan River harbour and restaurants area. As Diamond we were given an upgrade to a huge room(929) with a balcony and partial view of the Swan River. In the US, this would probably be classed as a Junior Suite and is similar in size to those types of room we have been given there. The view of the river was partially blocked by a new office building, which had been built extremely close to the Hilton and would have completely blocked the views of many of the rooms on all floors between our room and the lifts. The room had not been modernised recently and was furnished with old traditional furniture and had a large bathroom with double basins, seperate bath and walk-in shower. No complaints – it was very clean and all in good condition. I was led to believe that some of the floors have been modernised and upgraded. There was no Executive Floor and as I had read here that they didn’t give breakfast vouchers, only upgrades, we booked a Bounceback rate including breakfast which wasn’t much more than the room-only rate. As well as the upgrade, we were given a bottle of red wine and a large bowl of fruit on arrival and 2 bottles of water each day. Ate one night in the hotel at the Adelphi Steak House restaurant and thought the meal was good value.
Overall, we found the hotel very clean, like most of Perth city, staff and concierge were very pleasant, helpful and friendly and would definitely go back. Would also recommend the open-top bus tour which costs A$25 for a 2-day ticket. It’s a hop on/hop off tour with commentary which tours the city and surrounding area and is extremely good value. It departs from the Swan River harbour area, although you can get on at any of the stops.
