Hotel – Perth is a major vacation destination
and so provides visitors with a wide choice of hotels
of all standards. Most hotels in Australia are clean,
neat and friendly, even the budget hotels or motels.
In addition most are quite family friendly in the
sense that they do cater to young children need, can
provide an extra bed for young kids or baby cot, and
some offer it at no extra cost.
Many hotels and smaller hotels or motels have special
facilities for guests with disabilities. Smoke free
rooms are available at request. Now a day, hotels
provide coin slot Internet station for guests at the
lobby. More Expensive Hotels have
Internet access in bedrooms, sometimes at no extra
cost. In Perth, you may want to be right in the city
centre, however many guests choose to be a little
outside in the suburbs and of course Fremantle is
a few miles away and is a great centre to stay in.
For almost all Hotels in Perth,
reservations can be made over the Internet. In making
your choice it is worth spending a little time sussing
out what’s available, the better deals and discounts
and so on and again this can be simply done online.
