Spent the last day of our stay in Singapore by having a nice stroll along the river. On the way back Richard lost his hat so he went back to look for it. We really didn't think he'd find it - but he did. It was in the middle of the road being run over by the traffic - but like a hero he managed to rescue it.
Must say that Singapore was …
Today we took a boat trip to Freemantle. The Captain Cook took us the 1 hours boat ride down the Swan River with the captain pointing out the interesting sights along the way. Lot's of the time these were the mansions of the wealthy of Western Australia! It was a nice trip though. In Freemantle we were booked onto a Tram Tour around the town. The …
arrived here safely, good flight down from Singapore. Threw our bags in the hotel and went for a walk around the city centre and let Virgil treacy, sorry, I mean , Gerry, have a run about.
I had done my research- online it said that the Perth Mint was open public holidays except for Christmas Day. My dad and I headed over to see them pour gold, to touch a solid gold bar, and to learn about the coins and medals they made. Unfortunately, the website was incorrect. The mint was closed for Boxing Day. Great. We headed down to the …
Today I begin the journey from Perth to Sydney on the world famous Indian Pacific train. I'll be travelling in Gold Single Sleeper Class which has a small but comfortable cabin, and includes all meals enroute. A nice addition by Great Southern Rail for Gold Class customers is that all basic alcohol (well drinks, beer, wine) is now included in the fare. This could be dangerous for the 3.5 day journey!

Historical Traveler Reviews Mantra on Hay Perth
I stayed at the hotel for 8 nights with my wife and two children, the staff were very helpful and friendly. All the reception staff were both informative and knowledgeable in their recommendations for dining and day time activities for the family. The two bedroom suite was fantastic in size and design as well as being clean and well appointed. We used the hotel restaurant called "Bensons on a couple of occasions and i must say the quality was fantastic and resonably priced, the service was a little bit slow through. The only disappointment is the pool which was very cold and with an unpleasant odour so we only allowed the children to swim in it once!
Overall fantastic value for money and i would go back if visitng Perth again!
Great apartment at great price
We just needed a 2 bedroom apartment arriving after midnight and leaving by 1000. Friendly reception even for a 0200 check-in ! We got a massive 3 bedroom apartment. Very clean, well equipped. Judging by the lobby when we checked out, this place gets very booked up (which is obviously a good sign).
Were upgraded to a huge two bedroom , well appointed suite. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Restaurant & bar were good, although the air conditioning was much too fierce. Restaurant food was excellent but choice a little restricted, although we did eat there every night except one, when we used the excellent room service.
Great city and good location. Easy access using the free buses or taking a short walk into Perth, with the delightful Queens Park a short stroll away.
Standards Still High
Previous visit was 2 years ago and this time around found the same high standards of comfort, professionism and friendliness from the staff.
A little gem!
Perth was our first destination in a round-the -world trip and my wife and I could not have asked for a better hotel than the Saville Park Suites. We had four nights with a break for a two day tour. Both suites we used were excellent in every respect. The staff were extremely helpful and the restaurant provided splendid meals.
We stayed for 5 nights in this hotel in October 2005. We had previously stayed at other Saville hotels in Australia and, like those, this hotel was excellent. The apartment was roomy, quiet and well equipped. It was very comfortable and good value for money. The staff were all friendly and the service was extremely good. I was given free access to the business centre where I was able to access the internet and print documents without charge. We only had a drink in the bar/restaurant but the atmosphere and service were both good.
I stayed at this hotel in March this year and I have to say, it was excellent. I had previously stayed in the Saville Suites in Sydney and Melbourne (which were both excellent) but this was the best of the three. I found the staff to be extremely friendly, helpful and nothing was too much bother.
Possibly the best
Possibly the best service & amenities of any hotel. I never thought the Americans could be bettered for service - but you appear to have done it! In my travelos through the Far East, Europe & America, this is the first one of these I've bothered to fill in. the front desk was ever smiling & helpful!! And Bensons Restaurant service was discrete & very efficient.
Small hotel room
Despite the name, we were allocated a small double bedroom, with no facilities, certainly not a suite. If you are going to stay, be sure you know what you're getting.
The serviced apartments are comfortable (minimally furnished) and clean. Daily housekeeping service is slower than at a hotel, and front office staff are not the friendliest, but I would stay again because it's good value for money. The restaurant doesn't have great food, would suggest you go out to eat. It is quite a long walk to the shopping mall, but a car rental service is conveniently nearby.
