    Historical Traveler Reviews Crown Metropol Perth

    Best Hotel in Perth

    from

    Excellent rooms. Great property. Superb facilities, i think perhaps those who have knocked it have an axe to grind. This is a great property. Massive gardens surrounding. Casino. great theatre. Burswood dome. Golf course. Lots of places to eat. Service could be a little better. 5* property should be in top 5 perth places to stay.

    A reminder of what Perth once was

    from

    The Burswood in a really interesting place. It is a relic of the 1980's Perth boom which, was actually when most of Perths Hotels were built. My most recent stay here was proof that not much has changed, which is has it positives and negatives.

    The rooms were updated in the late 90's i'd say and are still fairly good, typical of the 80's they are quite big rooms, the bed was great. Bathroom was a very good size. The views from all the rooms are some of the best non coastal views in perth.

    The Hotel complex includes a number of restaurants, ranging from terrible (buffet style) to quite good (the chinese is world class), the complex also includes a Casino, if you plan on gambling arrange access to the international room, as the standard clientelle who frequent the the public gaming floor are rather unsavory, although security is always nearby. The complex also includes a golf course, which I am told is very good. The gardens surounding the hotel are also excellent(and massive it would take a good couple of hours the walk around them). The tennis court and a great pool are also on site.

    Burswood is across the river from the Perth CBD 10 mins a about $15AUD by cab. The Airport is about 20 mins and $20AUD by cab.

    Service is just ok. In Australia we lack the service attitude that one would experience from a similar property in Asia or the Middle East. Service is reactive rather than proactive.

    Burswood is a busy place on weekends the place is full of locals varying from the very rich to habitual gamblers. Its a lot of fun!!

    Burswood really is a relic of a the Alan Bond, Laurie Connell, Dallas Dempster days, when perth won the Americas Cup and was on its way to being an Australian Monaco. Sadly though these times have past, though Burswood remains as a monolithic relic, though the gloss has worn a little, of those days.

    Average hotel

    from

    This hotel has a stunningly large lobby that is quite impressive. It has several restaurants, a pool, tennis courts, gym and even a casino - it's a pretty big place.

    However, I have to agree with one of the previous reviewers about the 'lack of exclusiveness'.

    The rooms are quite large and are clean. A strange 'feature' is the sliding wall between the bedroom and the bathroom. Many (all?) of the rooms have one wall facing out into the huge lobby - and unfortunately sound seems to echo and boom throughout it all night. Quite annoying. As a slight compensation I got a great view over the river to Perth. But no balcony though :/

    I ate in three of the restaurants here:

    The Atrium

    This is the main restaurant, where a buffet breakfast, lunch and dinner breakfast is served daily. The breakfast is much what you'd expect, fairly good. The lunch and dinner however were decidedly average.

    Yu

    This is a Chinese restaurant that serves up some good food. Nothing spectacular though.

    Victoria Station

    This is a steak restaurant that serves up average food.

    I found it quite pricey too (the room, the food, the drinks...).

    Overall I found the whole place just slightly below average. Unless you're a gambler, I'd look elsewhere.

    Not bad....

    from

    stayed for a week. not bad, but the rooms were old and hard to get the temperature control correct. they seem to need to do some remodeling.

    work out facilities ok, but need to get there before 6am.

    not much more to say. didn't go to gamble, so, i'd rather stay somewhere newer next time.

    staff were very very nice.

    5 star hotel

    from

    I was very surprised to see that this hotel is not on the top 5 hotels. The reason being is:

    it is the only hotel that connects to perths only casino

    and it is only a few 5 star hotels in perth

    I have stayed here last year in the club rooms which meant included in the room was breakfast, cocktails and access to the private lounge.

    The room was beautiful...........with spa, seperate shower and even seperate toilet with door! A beautiful sliding screen seperated the spa and the bedroom which meant when having a spa you could watch tv!

    The burswood is known for its staff service and did not disappoint.

    It is very expensive and many rooms dont have balconies.

    Views are great and foyer area is breathtaking.

    Decent Hotel

    from

    Located outside the city center and not far from the airport, the hotel has commanding views of the beautiful city. Service is above average for a large hotel, but there is definitely the feeling of a lack of exclusiveness about this big hotel and casino. Rooms are ok in size. There is an indoor pool which is useful as the water temperature in the outdoor pool is still too cold in the height of summer.

    What a great place to eat

    from

    Had buffet meal there it was terrific, also visited the Casino which was rather dissapointing as the only machines there were Keno and Video poker. Anyway the buffet meal was great all you could eat for around 20 a head.

    Waiting to Go and arrival in Santiago

    Waiting in the Qantas Club lounge for our first flight. Perth to Sydney. Guess what .....after an absolute dream run from Margs to Perth and a lovely relaxing stay at the Crown Metropol last night our plane has been delayed due to engineering problems. Two hour delay.

    Sunday evening, packing and getting ready to go Monday morning - wet and drizzly as we left. Packed well and well below limit. Val saw it a a lost opportunity and was tempted to go back home to pack more! The long flight through London, Hong Kong and on to Perth went smoothly and Val was surprised at how good she felt arriving in at 23:00 local …

    ... and go through.

    I like to think that an airport is a fair reflection of the country/region you're visiting. The slicker the airport, the more pretensions a city/country has. There are other indicators into the 'culture' of a country from the layout of the airport. In the case of Denpasar, I thought I'd left all the street vendors selling cheap souvenir tat behind, only to find that the airport seems to have ...

    ... which seems to be the way the whole city is). Our room has a kitchen, laundry, lounge, and separate bedroom and bathroom. The hotel is well equipped with indoor pool, spa, sauna and gym, as well as a restaurant.

    We tried to stay awake last night to a reasonable hour to try and get used to the time difference but poor Jase couldn't quite make it and was out cold by about 8.30pm. No problem at all with that, you might be saying, but the problem was that ...
