Perth Ambassador Hotel & Ibis Perth

by dachel

anyone stay in these two hotels recently?

What's the feedback?

Is there any bathtub, parking and cable TV in the room for both hotel ?

any free internet access for Ibis?

Re: Perth Ambassador Hotel & Ibis Perth

I stayed at the Ibis last year when I attended the big VT meet in Perth. I guess it will depend on the room, but I had a basic twin with en-suite shower. There wasn't free internet access from memory. I'd check the websites for each hotel thoroughly if the bathtub etc are important to you.

What I would say is that I found the Ibis to be REALLY noisy (thin walls, noisy plumbing etc) so wouldn't be rushing to book it again.

I have to agree with Alli.. we were there as well...and I found the rooms really pokey and noisy..
I would be reseaching a bit longer if I were you.

I've heard several say they would not recommend the Ibis. It's cheap, with minumum facities. Some have said it was dirty.

Re: Perth Ambassador Hotel & Ibis Perth

Sorry, I've not stayed there (and can't find a tip about it for you on here). Maybe some other Perth based members will see this and have some info.

Try doing research regarding accommodation on TRIPADVISOR. I rely on that site for all my travel accommodation and am yet to be disappointed.


Staying in Drakes Apartment

by Yaniz

I have yet to book for my one week holiday in March. The only apartment I google and found so-called the cheapest and worth. Apartment 2 bedroom w a car for AUD 190. Anyone has ever stay in Drakes Apartment?? I need reviews before i proceed. Thks.

Re: Staying in Drakes Apartment

by tropicrd

Hi,I have just had a look at some of the reviews on tripadvisor and they are not very good.
The location is ok,in South Perth--and the photos of the apartments look really nice.
What some people are advising is that you can get better elsewhere.
Go into Drakes Apartments,Perth,Australia and have a look at the reviews for yourself.
Good luck.

Check out the Perth Ambassador Hotel, at the east end of Perth city, the free cat bus will bring you into the city and up to Kings Park.

I read in the Perth paper last week it won an award.Not expensive

The Goodearth Hotel is worth checking out, visit to check both.

Why do you want a car in Perth. Train will get you to Fremantle, also south to beautiful Mandurah.

Re: Staying in Drakes Apartment

Check out the Saville , near Bennett and Royal Street east Perth, 5 minute walk to Swan River and 10 minutes to city centre. Has nice apartments.

Saville, now known as Mantra on Hay. Link to Tripadvisor

Budget Hotel near Airport and Matilda Bay

by ickee

Hi! My bestfriend’s getting married at Perth, having her reception at Matilda Bay on Hackett Drive, Crawley. I’m flying in from Singapore for her wedding but leaving on an early flight to Sydney the next day. Is it recommendable for me to book a hotel near the airport? Or should I get accommodations near Matilda Bay? Is the CBD really far from the domestic airport or Matilda Bay? Will a good budget hotel within the CBD suffice? Are there cabs readily available that I can call at 430am? Please advise me and recommend hotels as I’ve never been to Perth and don’t know how far one place is to another. I’m on a tight budget as well. Appreciate your suggestions! Thanks a lot!!

RE: Budget Hotel near Airport and Matilda Bay

by Mikebb

Hi Matilda Bay is approx 10 to 15 minutes from the CBD,the International airport is approx 15 to 20 minutes from CBD,the domestic airport being 10 to 15 minutes from CBD depending upon time of day and traffic, longer in peak hour but the other side of town, should be taxi fare AU $20 TO $25 to international and 15 to 20 domestic. Do not know of any hotels near Matilda Bay , suggest you stay in small Hotel in CBD.The recent edition of the RAC magazine has specials at:
Emerald Hotel Pert 4 star $125 per night incl full breakfast
Aarons All Suites 4 star $115 pn & their hotel $98pn includes continental buffet b/fast
Perth Ambassador Hotel 3 star $110 pn with full buffet breakfast.

Try RAC website or Google search abovementioned hotels
Cabs will be available, ask reception to book,
Good Luck,Mikebb

RE: Budget Hotel near Airport and Matilda Bay

Your best plan is a hotel called Hotel Formule 1 which is very close to the airport (2 minutes) and only about $59 AUD per night. It is nice and clean and safe (quite new) and good value for money. It will be easy to get taxi to Matilda Bay and only cost you around $25 AUD and probably around $7AUD to get to airport the following morning. I would ring and book your taxi the night before for a 4.30am pickup. You can look at their website at and select location in Perth. Definately book as they can get fully booked.

Hope that has helped you some.

Thanks for the advice! I'm back now! I ended up booking a cab 2 days before my departure and staying at an apartment on Hay Street. Wasn't too bad. Thanks for the advice!

Travel Tips for Perth

Probably not renowned for its...

by Degsy

Probably not renowned for its lively bars, but Perth does have a trump card in the 'Northbridge' area! It is a must to any of you who like to party - they have a number of theme bars to!

If you manage to get to Perth then please take the opportunity to visit the West Coast! It's definitely worth seeing, and remember, most of it is untouched!! If you are visiting Perth for the first time then I can only suggest that you take the opportunity to admire the city and all of it's scenery by visiting Kings Park. There you can sit in the beautiful sun eating an ice cream/drinking a beer, whilst watching the world go by!

Explore this great place by...

by dotwg1

Explore this great place by driving yourself. Car hire is available everywhere and it is very reasonable...approx. A$16 per day for a small to medium sedan. Public transport is convenient too but you'll need to check its schedule. Within Perth city there is free bus called C.A.T. Best time to visit is Spring (September to November) but be careful of high count of pollen during this time. You may catch hay fever. The start of Autumn (end March to April) is also wonderful time of the year.

Travel to Albany (south of Perth) which is about 4 hours' drive. Albany has fabulous scenery. Go along Frenchman Bay Drive in Albany (coastal drive). Along the way you'll pass a number of towns, like Margaret River which is popular for its wineries. There are approximately about 49 wineries in Margaret River itself! Leeuwin Estate, Vasse Felix and Chateau Xanadu are my favourites. Each has its own cafe and restaurant which is really nice for a lazy afternoon.

Fishing is great here too! Estuary or deep-sea fishing is a popular past-time if you love fishing. Whenever I'm away travelling, I miss the various trendy cafes.

Bike Riding in Busselton

by leanne_pearc

When we stayed at Abbey Beach, we hired bikes for the afternoon. for two bikes it cost 15.00AUD. There is a path along geographe bay which can take you either to Busselton or Dunsborough. We rode to busselton all the way along the beach line.

Australia Day

by perthette

The 26th of January every year is Australia Day, a day for beer, barbies and brawls. well, sort of.
The Lotto skyworks (although a bit of a let-down in 2005) are a great family event, but be warned, street-drinking is illegal. This includes a glass of wine down on the foreshore, but responsible drinking is often ignored by the police. Australia day is a great day to dress up in a ridiculous fashion: aussie flag sarongs, boob-tubes, hats, green and gold socks and face paint. Most of Perth converges on the Swan River foreshore to watch the fireworks, but in recent years the police have had some minor problems with brawls. If you plan to visit the foreshore, plese remember to take the following: insect repellent, sunscreen, folding chairs or a rug, food and drink, and a radio.
As well as the fireworks, australia day is also recognised as a national day for family. So round 'em up and chuck a few snaggas on the barbie while the kids play a game of cricket.

Wings Over Whiteman

by keeweechic

Usually during the last weekend in November the members of the WA Model Aircraft Sports Centre hold the Wings Over Whiteman event. Here you will see model aeroplanes, helicopters and jets perform acrobatics and stunts as well as producing some amazing speeds. They hover and loop and thrill both the young and old alike. Food and drinks are available as is a childrens play area including a bouncy castle.

The days commence at around 10.00am through to about 3.00pm. There is a fee charged at the entrance to the field although children under 16yrs are free.

Location: State Model Aircraft Centre. Entry to te centre is located between Gnangara Road and Whiteman Park’s Beechboro Rd entrance. Whiteman (25 mins north of downtown Perth).
