Couple of days in a single blog. Didnt have the internet yesterday, this is what we wrote:
Emily has been pretty useless today, we got in after midnight but set the alarm to try and start working on aussie time. This has meant that Em is lacking in sleep, Andy seems to be coping pretty well though.Generally been a pretty chilled out day. …
... Monday arvo in time to start work) is that I can now go visit mum on Mother's Day and surprise her... I'll be her gift :). Until then I'm just going to lie low here at work and do some more recovering. Am planning on going to the doctors on Monday and getting a second check on my foot and neck... Just to make sure.. So with that I believe we have come to the end of bulldogs Bluesfest bash blog... See y'all next time for another adventure... ...
... but bolt off to the left just before landing on my feet. Couple of hours later and still no success of standing. But with the knowledge now how to surf, staying calming and riding the waves. We were on track. George managed to stand up second time. Had some freshly caught fish and chips for lunch. Chilled in Kalbarri town centre. Went to the local beach, sunbathed. Random stray dogs turned up. Just happened to be the same dogs that we saw yesterday at ...
A story of Pathetic Fallacy. The rainy weather, a sign of a new beginning? As I pick up from where I left off. It's been 10 and a half weeks of early get ups, long days and late nights. I've learned a lot. I've looked after a dog by myself for 3 weeks. Worked at a fine dining restaurant, learnt how some exquisite dishes are made. Saw some amazing meals. Looked after and entertained 'guests' for the first time when George, Kurt, Vince, Rosie and ...
... busy and there was a band on playing your typical kind of rock covers. We did a quick circuit of the stalls, to see what was on offer, before diving in. Unsurprisingly, it was the Taco stall that ended up being our first point of call and they did not disappoint! Meltingly tender pulled pork and chipotle sauce in a homemade tortilla was a perfect way to get started. My intention had been to have lots of small dishes to sample as much as ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Mounts Bay Waters Apartment Hotel Perth
Unlike the previous reviewer, our apartment was well equipped and in a good state of repair. However, I agree there is a high turnover here and at the adjacent Waldorf apartments. Staff are helpful and requests for assistance on minor matters quickly attended to.
I have stayed here eight times with my family over the past four years now (from 2001-2005). Having said this, on my past three visits, I have noticed that the furniture, carpets and other items within the apts are looking a little "sad, tired and worn" - probably down to the abuse they get when families with many small children and "party animals" book to stay. I did notice that the mirror image two bedroom apt next to ours was occupied (as they were very noisy) and the following morning, while waiting for the elevator, out poured no less than 14 Singaporean tourists (I asked them where they were from) - it's no wonder the apts look worn & tired when there are people abusing the system and sneaking in extra guests. I believe the apt is suitable for a max of 6 persons (two in each bedroom and then the sofa bed for another two) so god only knows where the other 8 people chose to sleep...
Comfortable modern apartment
I really liked this place. If it was slightly closer to the City Centre it would be perfect, but its still only a 10 minute walk or a *free* 3 minute bus ride away.
The rooms are clean, modern, well specced - microwave, oven, fridge, dishwasher, washing m/c, tumbledrier, air con, TV, balcony. Its a pleasant place to stay, reasonably quiet considering there are main roads nearby. The building has a tasty Thai restaurant downstairs, which also has cheap Internet access in it. There is a tennis court and a pool, but I spent most of my time out exploring beautiful Perth. Its so easy and cheap to get around (buses, trains, taxis, ferries), nothing feels far away.
If you want a good value apartment near Perth, stay here.
Great place to stay, but busy road!!!
Good rooms, furniture a little "tired", even though complex not that old. Pool very small. ?Poor disabled access, no ramp seen? Free bus service to central perth and eateries directly out front, so position okay. Can walk anywhere. Very helpful and friendly staff. Thai resturant attached supply hearty and authentic fare for room service.
Bit of a Let Down
We really pondered over our choice of hotel in Perth and on reflection we probably made the wrong choice. Although the apartments are modern and the complex has many amenities (pool, tennis courts, gym, restaurant, internet access) we were a bit disappointed by its location (not very central and next to a very busy road) and our room. The bedroom felt a bit scruffy as the shower was obviously leaking as there was a damp patch on the carpet and wall. Also one morning we didn't leave our room until 9.15am and because of this our room wasn't serviced that day!
Nevertheless the place wasn't bad but I would only recommend for long stays. If you're in Perth for just a short time I would recommend staying somewhere more central.
Miles from grub
Perfectly adequate hotels, though I think the location is a bit of a let down because it's not really within walking distance to any places most visitors would go, and especially so if one needs a meal. If you stay there be prepared to have to use cabs extensively.
Great amenities but next to the motorway!
This is a nearly new, well maintained apartment hotel with every amenity you could reasonably expect. The only problem is that fact that it is but metres away from (if not almost under) one of the main Perth highways and if you are on a facing or high floor room you may be overcome by the noise. After a 26 hour flight from the UK, we were shattered and so slept through on the first night. For the second we couldn't stand it and moved down the road to another of their properties, the Waldorf Apartments. Quieter and therefore nicer.
Definitely worth a try if you can get a quiet room though.
Great location and value!
Great location, excellent value.quality accommodation Never knew about it untill told by a friend! Great facilities (pool,Gym,tennis Court,free pay-tv,Bar & coffe shop) We got an hotel apartment for 5 for the cost of a hotel room!
Great value, friendly staff
Am from Perth originally and stayed here on a recent trip to Perth. Found a great deal on the internet. These apartments are great- well maintained- full kitchen, in-house movies, daily maid service, tennis courts, pool and gym, free parking. So much nicer than a hotel room. Room service is also available of you want it, though nothing special. Located a few minutes walk from the CBD and close to Kings Park. By far the best thing were the staff- super friendly. Nothing was too much trouble. You will not be disappointed if you stay here.
