Guesthouses and B&Bs
If you've ever wished you were 'to the manor born', indulge your fantasies in this grand stone mansion (1840). The rooms in the main house are large, TV-free and strewn with antiques; some have four-poster beds. All have smallish private bathrooms...
Mantra On Hay
Low-key but classy, Mantra's roomy apartments have laundries, dishwashers, good-sized benches and all the utensils you'll need.
Woodman Point Holiday Park
A particularly pleasant spot, 10km south of Fremantle. It's usually quiet, and its location makes it feel more summer beach holiday than outer-Freo staging post.
Ocean Beach Backpackers
Offering (some) ocean views, this big, bright hostel in the heart of Cottesloe is just a short skip from the sand. Rooms are basic, but all have private bathrooms, and you'll probably just be here to sleep given the great location...
Built from two big old houses, Coolibah Lodge is comfortable and homely but nothing fancy. Dorms are tidy if a bit poky, and doubles are of a good standard. Expect a mix of travellers and longer-term guests. Breakfast is included...
Billabong Backpackers Resort
This large hostel (about 150 beds) has a busy poolside area, and is popular with longstay guests, but can be noisy. It's close to Mt Lawley's bars and cafes.
Perth City Yha
Occupying an impressive 1940s art-deco building by the train tracks, the centrally located YHA has a slight boarding-school feel in the corridors, but the rooms are clean and there are good facilities including a gym...
Western Beach Lodge
A real surfer hang-out, this sociable, homely hostel has surfboards and boogie boards available, and a good, no-frills feel.
One World Backpackers
Polished floorboards beam brightly in all the rooms of this nicely restored old house, and the dorms are big and sunny, if a little messy sometimes...
The Witch's Hat
Witch's Hat is like something out of a fairy tale. The 1897 building itself could be mistaken for a gingerbread house, and the witch's hat (an Edwardian turret) stands proudly out the front, beckoning the curious to step inside...
Popular with country folk coming to town, these self-contained units have (tiny) balconies, some with views of the river just a block away, secure parking and a great location near the CAT bus route.
Quest Yelverton Kalgoorlie
Close to Hannan St but far enough away to get a quiet night's sleep, the Quest offers fully self-contained and serviced apartments.
Riverview On Mount Street
There's a lot of brash new money up here on Mount St, but character-filled Riverview stands out as the best personality on the block. Its refurbished 1960s bachelor pads sit neatly atop a modern foyer and a relaxed cafe...
Tucked in behind good-value Asian restaurants east of the city centre, these recently redecorated one- and two-bedroom apartments are spacious and modern...
Quest Harbour Village
At the end of a wharf, this attractive, two-storey, sandstone and brick block of one- to three-bedroom apartments makes the most of its nautical setting; one-bedroom units have views over the car park to the Fishing Boat Harbour, while the others dire...
Apricot-hued City Waters is one of a dying breed of old-fashioned Perth waterfront motels. Rooms are small and simple and face onto the car park, but they're clean and airy and the waterfront location is top-notch...
The Melbourne Hotel
Classic country charm wafts through this heritage-listed hotel...
No surprises here, just unassuming well-kept rooms, some with views. Occasional online deals are good value in an expensive city.
Hotel Northbridge isn't the hippest kid in town, but there's a spa bath in every room, and it's a quieter part of a sometimes noisy neighbourhood. The classic pub rooms in the budget wing ($65) face onto a broad verandah but share shabby toilets.
Comfort Hotel Perth City
Generic and outmoded, but rooms are large, the staff friendly and the breakfast spread excellent.
The Royal Hotel
A creaking, character-filled historic building, the 1890s Royal Hotel is well placed for early-morning trips out of town (the busport and train station are just metres away). Cute though modest single rooms have attic-like roofs.
Terrace Central B&B Hotel
Terrace Central may be a character-filled B&B at heart, but its larger size gives it the feel of a boutique hotel...
