10 Perth Hotels Giving Luxe Without the Price

Quay Perth

As the sunniest capital city in Australia, with 138.7 clear days annually, Perth is an easy choice for a domestic getaway. Not to mention, it offers visitors plenty to do and see, including strolling the gardens at Kings Park, day tripping to Rottnest Island and brewery hopping in Fremantle (or “Freo”, as the locals call it).

But like with any getaway, expenses can easily add up. Fortunately, Perth has more than a handful of luxury-feeling hotels under $250 a night. Most have balcony rooms, outdoor pools (so you can take advantage of those sunny days) and in-house restaurants even the locals dine at.

Ahead, we’re sharing our edit of the best 10 among them. From hotels in the CBD, to resorts on the city outskirts, these are the most opulent Perth hotels you can book for under $250 a night.
