Built in 1898, this hotel has been hosting visitors to Perth since the gold-prospecting boom of the late 19th Century. New owners restored the heritage-listed property in 1999, resurrecting the original balcony and adding 48 four-star rooms – each containing its own spa – to become one of Perth’s premier boutique hotels. Fuse Bar and Chime Restaurant are also on site.
