From the very moment we pulled our overnight bags through the immense foyer of Crown Towers Perth, I felt relaxed. The luxury hotel is Crown Perth’s glittering jewel. With so much to see and do on the Burswood peninsula, it’s the perfect spot for a family stay-cay.
Check in was smooth and we were so excited that we pretty much ran up the long corridor to our room! We stayed in a Deluxe Twin room, with two big beds, making it ideal for families.
Before we headed to the pool and to explore the rest of the hotel, we had a good look around our stunning room, which had veiws to the Darling Ranges. The room is immaculately appointed, with two beds, a huge flat-screen TV with Foxtel and streaming channels, a relaxing chaise and desk.
There are far too many inclusions to name. Here’s some of the features we found useful:
o Deep soaking bath
o Connecting rooms available upon request
o Nespresso coffee machine and tea making facilities
o Fridge and DELUXE mini bar
o A selection of magazines
o Complimentary bottled water
o Iron and Ironing board
o Snuggly Crown bathrobes and slippers
o Hands free telephones
o High-speed WIfi Internet access
o 24hr room service & concierge
The tablet found by the beds controls pretty much everything in the room, from drawing the curtains to the TV!
The marble bathroom is a whole other level from any hotel I’ve ever stayed at. Here at Crown Towers you can watch TV in the bath. Seriously! There’s a phone in the loo too. And I was seriously impressed by the bath’s huge faucet, which the water gushes out so fast, filling the bath in no time at all.
There’s also loads of quality toiletries, an ionic hair dryer and fluffy towels. The deluxe mini bar offers local spirits, Koko Black chocolates and French champagne for Mum and Dad.
As well as the diverse dining offering at Crown there’s also a huge nature playground next to Optus Stadium, as well as the Camfield micro-brewery, just a short river-side stroll away.
With all that attention to detail, it’s no surprise that the pool area is stunning. It was a gloriously sunny afternoon, so we grabbed a few sunloungers and enjoyed a splash about. The poolside area is open from 6.30am to 7.30pm daily.
There isn’t a dedicated kids pool as such, like in the neighbouring Crown Metropol where there’s a kiddie play area and slide. The pool closest to the cabana has a beach entry, which is perfect for little ones as it starts off very shallow. There’s also a small, circular pool, surrounded by loungers. This plunge pool is only 90cms deep.
Also found by the pool is a cabana with foosball and a pool table.
We couldn’t drag ourselves away from this beautiful spot, so we enjoyed an early dinner by the pool. Ordering is easy – just put up your flag on the sunlouger and a friendly waitperson will soon be along to take your order.
My Nicoise salad was spot on – the tuna was perfectly cooked, it was a good sized meal and the salad was also well dressed.
Little Chef chose fish n chips ($16) from the kids menu (nuggets and spag bol are also available) and it was a very generous serve.
We headed upstairs and settled in for a comfortable night’s sleep. The bed was very comfortable and I loved having the extra dark block out curtains! We made the most of a late 11am check out with a lazy morning by the pool. We headed downstairs for breakfast at Epicurean, but instead of the luxe buffet, we opted to enjoy the good weather and order from the a la carte menu outside.
Little Chef enjoyed pancakes.
I had runny poached eggs and avo on toast (GF) and Chef loved his brekky burger.
We spent a memorable night at Crown Towers. The impressive hotel has really raised the bar in WA. My tip is to book two or more nights, especially if you want to make full use of the pool. One night is never enough!
