Four Points By Sheraton Perth
Travel Blogs from Perth
Perth WA. Arrived here at tea time, so got a taxi into town. I'd booked myself into the Hotel Grand Chancellor in the CBD(city centre), as I reckoned I'm due a bit of a holiday, and some comfort to start with. Hotel is nice enough, just your usual. Took a wander around the city centre and got some food on the first night. Very quiet in the centre …
... Street is at a great location, and good value for under AUD100 a night. Small rooms, but clean and efficient. Kind of reminded me of living in IKEA. Good restaurants and bars nearby, and a Cole's for groceries a block away. The main Perth Station is a 5 minute walk, and will be convenient for me to catch the train to East Perth Station where the ...
... so didn't properly follow it. It seemed like the kind of game that you could do with concentrating on to work out what was going on when watching your first couple of games. It was a shame that it had been off-season when we were here before, because I would have quite liked to have gone to a game. We were getting pretty hungry again by now, so wandered back down to the harbour, where there was a street food-market on.
The market ...
... together a glowing application, (made quite tricky by the fact that 3 of us were unemployed!) we were finally told that one of the landlords were willing to give us British couples a go! We were over the moon and couldn't wait to move into our apartment, which funnily enough had been the very first apartment that we had viewed.
Our apartment block is in the heart of Perth and in a prime location for all the city has to offer. We are surrounded by shops, bars ...
... when it came to the hills!
I stopped off in Little Armstrong Bay for lunch and a snorkel. I probably could have picked a nicer bay as there were loads of boats moored up with people having a party and getting drunk. This isnt a problem except when you are in the water as a snorkel and the chances of you getting run down by a little speed boat is pretty high!
On the way back to the port I decided to take a road that would lead me into ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Four Points By Sheraton Perth
We stayed at the Grand Chancellor for two nights. We arranged the trip through Virgin Blue holidays, who do a hotel and flight package.
Only had to endure this hotel for one night thankfully. Reception was a shambles and staff not particularly helpful. Hotel generally very shabby. Bar staff were more intent on holding a conversation with locals than serving us.
Dreadful nights sleep, outdated room, and terrible noise from other rooms, especially bathrooms.
Had breakfast in hotel and quite frankly was awful.
I was in Australia for 8 weeks for this trip and spent nights in various hotels - this was by far the worst.
Basic but within walking distance...
Stayed at the Grand Chancellor for 3 nights in September 2005.
The receptionist at the front desk was helpful and friendly (allowing us to phone a tour company to confirm a booking for the next day).
However, the rooms were small and uninviting. The sheets (although washed and ironed) were marked with what looked like blood or tomato ketchup - though it looked like it had been there a LONG time!
The bed itself was comfortable enough and the room relatively quiet but in need of redecorating.
Never went to the restaurant as expensive (there was a diner in the next street selling almost identical menu for a quarter of the price).
Locationwise it was fine - within walking distance of the main shopping areas but that was about all it's redeeming quality!
I attended Perth for a conference and found the mid city location ideal as a base for the different activities of attending the conference, sightseeing, shopping and eating out.
I stayed at the Grand Chancellor during a vacation in Western Australia that I combined with a conference in Perth in September 2004.
First night rooms!!!
Not an experience to be repeated, not a really bad hotel, just some useless staff.
We arrived in the earlier hours of the morning and were allocated 2 rooms, 1 for our 2 boys and one for us, the parents. Our room was what I call a first night room, given to guests hoping they won't complain until the next day. This one was next to a very noisy lift shaft. I complained and was given a second room that, luckily for me and the occupant, the door chain was secured. Back to the useless receptionist for a third room. 2 hours later if was difficult to get to sleep. This was not a pleasant experience, however the staff were totally unsympathetic and could get us a room close to our sons without some more unbelievable incompetence.
Recently I spent my second 5-day stint in the Hotel Grand Chancellor in Perth and once again found it an entirely pleasant and professional experience. Both check-in and check-out were efficently expeditious and even provided separate itemised accounts for the things that were business and personal with a maximimum of helpfulness and a minimum of fuss.
I recently had to stay at the Grand Chancellor for a conference.
Had a great time
My husband and I recently spent a few days in Perth and our hotel accommodation was excellent. The room was very clean, and dining facilities excellent, and best of all the service was also excellent. We couldn't fault the hotel or the staff and will certainly come again. Thanks for a wonderful Perth holiday.
