In 1984 the Equal Opportunity Act was passed, ensuring more rights for LGBT individuals and couples.  Gay Friendly Suburbs in Perth, these are High gate, Mount Lawley and Maylands, all are within an easy commute of Perth. Location of many gay friendly hotels Perth are in those districts.

Australia is one of the most LGBT-friendly countries in the world. In a 2013 Pew Research poll, 79% of Australians agreed that homosexuality should be accepted by society, making it the fifth most supportive country in the survey behind Spain (88%), Germany (87%), Canada and the Czech Republic (both 80%).

Perth, capital of Western Australia, sits where the Swan River meets the southwest coast. Sandy beaches line its suburbs, and the huge, riverside Kings Park and Botanic Garden on Mount Eliza offer sweeping views of the city. The Perth Cultural Centre houses the state ballet and opera companies, and occupies its own central precinct, including a theatre, library and the Art Gallery of Western Australia.

The hotel has also recently welcomed Bobby’s BBQ Truck which in affiliation with Ruah Community Services raised fund to help support the homeless of Perth through the sale of bacon and egg rolls. The truck also sells steak sandwiches, cheesy nachos and hot coffee. The iconic Pan Pacific Perth Free-Flowing High Tea is available in Bar Uma every Saturday and Sunday between 2pm and 4.30pm. There is a variety of facilities to complement guest stays including complimentary Wi-Fi, 24 hour gym, heated pool and the convenience of an onsite car park. The hotel is a leisurely stroll to some of Perth’s most iconic tourist destinations including the Swan River foreshore and Government House gardens or is a short 5 minute drive to stunning Kings Park.

The location was great, about 10 minutes walk to either Elizabeth Quay or the Hay and Murray St malls. About 10 minutes the other way is the suburb of Carlton which had a number of interesting local restaurants.

Breakfast in both the lounge and Montereys was good. The lounge is calmer but Montereys has a larger selection.

The bar in the hotel was popular although we did tend to walk over to Fenians Bar across the road for drinks or head down to either Barrack Street Jetty or Elizabeth Quay for dining which is around a 15 minute stroll.

Great location, restaurants and bars in the hotel, Irish pub across the road, we walked to Elizabeth Quay, (where we picked up a train to Mandurah) and walked to the cbd, but the free cat service (buses) stop close by if you prefer.

The room was amazing, so much bigger than the website shows, separate living area just great. The bathroom was amazing, very large, had fabulous toiletries replenished daily. Beautiful view of Swan River, very quiet.

The hotel is a short walking distance from the lively Elizabeth Quay area, the (free) bus to King’s Park and the Swan River.

Highlights:  Location; Homemade $1 muffins and great coffee available for breakfast in the lobby; great Sunday night buffet at the Monterey when many other restaurants nearby are closed.  A free bottle of wine was given to us to entice us to book.

This hotel is a great place stay, being a short bus ride or stroll to the city centre but far enough to relax and unwind. They have adapted their service for the current pandemic conditions, with many hand sanitiser dispensers within easy reach for general use. In absence of the closed Montereys buffet restaurant, if you have breakfast included, you can order your choice via in-room dining and it’s delivered to your room at the door maintaining healthy social distancing. Also the Lobby Lounge Cafe has expanded their range.

Apart from coffee and sweet offerings, there’s refrigerated wraps, salads, fruit and drinks. New additions include takeaway steak sandwich and bacon egg roll. In the room, snacks and beverages have been removed with the complimentary tea, coffee and UHT milk still available. In-room dining menu has also been reduced however the staple dishes are pretty reasonable and good value. Connected car parking charge of $10 a day is very convenient. Always impressed with the welcoming and friendly staff at reception and concierge desk, it makes for a wonderful experience. Highly recommend staying here.

Lovely hotel with very friendly staff. It was a little bit away from the centre of the city but it was walkable and the buses within Perth city are free and so easy to use.

The city centre is a pleasant aprox 2 block walk and you can go down to the Swan river and along it to the bell tower complex and harbour then back through the mall on your way home. Don’t forget that Perth has the ‘CAT’ busses that are free to travel around so you can get to the wonderful Kings park that is a ‘must do”!

A tip is to either catch the CAT bus into the city then catch a trail out to Fremantle. You will not be disappointed as there is a tonne of things to see from the wonderful maritime museum, Goal, town centre and harbour plus the convict trail.

The location was very convenient for walking along the riverside to central Perth including the ferries to Fremantle and the Perth Mint is just around the corner. The room had a huge bathroom with both a shower and bath. There was plenty of storage space. We found the room to be quiet and the bed comfy. It was clean and modern as you’d expect from a business hotel.

Our room rate included use of the Privilege lounge which had good views of the Swan river. Breakfast was in this lounge with a help yourself buffet with a good selection of continental and hot food. The coffee was strong and they had tea with tea pots too! A bonus for us was use of the lounge with tea, coffee and snacks available all day and food and drinks between 5.30 -7.30pm This was advertised as ‘canapes’ but was actually more of a full buffet! Would recommend and stay again.

The hotel itself is typical Ibis standard – clean, comfy, basic amenities. The staff were friendly, the room was well kept, and the shower was amazing! It was a big round shower head with good pressure, and was very nice after a long day of exploring.

My room was a little small, but it had a nice double bed, and the basic facilities – mini fridge, kettle, tea & coffee. Bathroom was stocked with shampoo and soap, as well as a hair drier. Wifi was free. Power points were in short supply though, with none available at the bed. Had to use one behind the TV to charge my phone, but it wasn’t too inconvenient.

All in all, it was a good, well-priced hotel to use as a base to explore the city from.

A simple yet beautiful hotel. Very accessible to Perth Underground. And it is located right in the shopping zone. Below is a bar. If you don’t mind the music, in fact great music, you will love this place.

Great location to mall, restaurants, supermarkets, transport. Was impressed by the room & facilities. I didn’t mind the noise from the bar below, but if you are a light sleeper bring ear plugs. I would definitely recommend to others.

The room are very tastefully decorated and comfortable. The bed was DIVINE! Staff were amazing and for the price and little extras that were thrown in, this is a little gem.

Great breakfast pack which included cereal, milk, muffin and an up n go) complimentary drinks while you were checking in and two drink vouchers for the bar downstairs (which is fantastic). The bathrooms are lovely and the shower was amazing….this is defiantly one we would recommend and stay at again.

The room was spacious, new, modern with the comfiest beds. Bathroom was large with plenty of room to move. Check in was easy as with a complimentary drink and breakfast box. Location is fantastic, less than 5 minute walk to the Perth underground.

A little noisy from the bar downstairs at night but didn’t bother us as we were out all day.
They even gave us vouchers for a couple of free Belgian beers downstairs on arrival – epic!

Highly recommended, I’d stay here again in a flash, it was really central and great for exploring Perth.

Aloft Perth

Featuring free WiFi and modern amenities, Aloft Perth offers modern accommodation in Perth. Guests can enjoy a meal at the on-site restaurant, work out in the fitness centre or take a dip in the swimming pool. Perth Convention and Exhibition Centre is just 5 km away.

Every room at this hotel is air conditioned and is equipped with a flat-screen TV with satellite channels. Some rooms boast views over the Swan River.

Located in The Springs, Perth’s biggest urban renewal project near the Swan River, the new Aloft Perth welcomes guests with innovation, buzz and lifestyle. Sleek and colourful rooms, cutting edge meeting space, a hip restaurant, outdoor terrace and vibrant public spaces make Aloft Perth one of the most sought after hotels in town.

Situated on the banks of the Swan river with walking paths just outside the hotel and very close to the airport this place is ideally situated.

From a fast and exceptionally friendly check we went to our room. The view over the city was mesmerising. The room spotlessly clean and well equipped with a full length longer the length of the picture windows.

The bathroom was huge with a choice of rain head shower and hand held one with ample space and beautiful quality soaps and washes. Plenty of towels although I am sure getting more would not be a problem.

The bed was huge and comfortable and the air con/heating system as silent as anything with blackout curtains that worked a treat. There was full sunrise occurring outside and you wouldn’t have know it.

All in all highly recommended for a night to a holiday in Perth.

his hotel is very close to the Perth Airport, walking distance from the Swan River and has everything you want. Decent buffet breakfast, Fast WiFi that works, plenty of staff and an excellent hotel bar that is fully crowded with plenty of seating space during happy hours. If you have a high status in Marriott Bonvoy, they give you free drink vouchers for a select # of beets, house wines and coffee.

There is no concierge lounge but you can order room service or walk over (5 min) to a small mall that has a few nice restaurants and an IGA incase you want to stock your fridge with a few things. Hotel was built in 2017 so very new, modern and everything works. The rooms are super clean and everything is in “like new condition” allowing you to relax when you work or just chill and watch the 65” TV on a nice swivel mount, making it viewable from the entire room. Great window views and a nice gym and pool make this a low cost gem to stay. I will stay again next time I am in Perth.

The rooms are great, beds and pillows are very comfortable and my wife and I both slept really well. There was no road noise that we could hear. The location of this hotel is ideal.

Very trendy rooms with great beds beautiful and unique decor. Generous bathroom size and room size.
Staff are warm and friendly.

he theme of modern art/loft style certainly makes a change from the normal ‘hotel style’ bedrooms we are so used to.

The tiles in the bathroom (in the shower area) are stunning – I have them in my new house in my bathroom so it is good to know that I am ‘on trend’.

I ate at the restaurant downstairs for dinner and had a steak. It was lovely and I didn’t feel ‘obvious’ because I was eating on my own as is the case in some places.
I didn’t get to experience breakfast but it looked great.

If there is one negative it would be this — the TV in my room was on the side wall – not sure if this is the case in all rooms. Which meant, that I couldn’t lie in bed and watch TV which is a treat when I stay in a hotel.

I will definitely be back!

5. Crown Towers Perth 5* – LGBT Friendly Hotels Perth


Staying at Crown Towers Perth is an indulgent experience, with its expansive lagoon pools, unparalleled city views, luxurious spa facilities, state-of-the-art fitness centre and high-end boutiques.

Opening in May 2017, Crown Towers Perth has made the Eastern banks of the Swan River home, 4 minutes’ drive from the WACA, 10 minutes’ drive from the re-developed Elizabeth Quay and 13 minutes’ drive from the centre of Perth CBD (Central Business District).

The multi-tiered pool area has both in-pool and poolside lounges as well as plush daybeds available to hire, for an additional charge. The Enclave is a secluded poolside retreat featuring luxurious cabanas, surrounding a private infinity pool. Each cabana has 2 sunbeds, a Plasma TV, minibar and a dedicated host.

The epitome of luxury, Crown Towers Perth showcases world-class design and unprecedented resort facilities, dining and boutique shopping.

. The spaces are just enormous from the minute you enter the fabulous lobby to the walk through to the Metropole. The furnishings, art work etc are totally in keeping with the 5-star rating. The staff are professional, extremely helpful and nothing is too much trouble. Our room was fantastic with superb views from the picture window over the Swan river and Perth, the furniture and fittings were all of high quality. The attention to detail was excellent and the room was immaculate. The breakfast was delicious and the choice mind-blowing.

Our room had a view facing the swan river /city and the bed was exceptionally comfortable. The bathroom was superbly fitted. We particularly liked the pool complex, which had a number of infinity pools and an ‘over 18’ area, which was peaceful and quiet.

Fantastic hotel. Everything about it just emphasizes luxury, from the grand entrance and halls, to the numerous pools, to the standard of rooms. If you need or want anything, there is a button for it. Close the curtains? There is a button for that. Want to book a helicopter to go play golf? There is a button for that. You can literally lie in bed and control the entire room from the iPad.

As for the buffet breakfast, one of the best in the world that I have experienced, which is saying something.

The bathroom is large and comes well catered for two people (which makes a change – most hotels will only cater for one person in a two person room). The staff come around early evening to offer to turn down the beds, water and yummie Koko Black chocolate. Nice to have a Nespresso coffee machine/pods in the room. The mattress and pillows were to die for – so comfortable, one of the best sleeps I have had in a hotel room. I can’t rave about this hotel enough – pure luxury. I will be back!

The facilities are fantastic and pure quality from the fabulous rooms, pool area, eating, staff service and The Waiting Room for a drink which has a brilliant ambiance.

Our Twin Deluxe Room was beautiful and extremely clean. Stunning bathroom with excellent lighting which we women love and need! Bed and bedding comfortable and quality for a great night’s sleep. The room is exactly as it is shown online.

It’s so nice to have somewhere like this to recommend for overseas visitors stay.

What a fabulous place to spend the night the view from the room was wonderful overlooking Perth the curtains opened right up so it was uninterrupted views, and of course we did this on our samsung tablet this is in the room the tablet also operates the lights and air con. I also love my coffee and there is a espresso coffee machine in the room! The bed very comfortable that’s if you can get out of the lovely bath tub! that has its own TV. We travel a lot and stay middle of the road but this is pure luxury would recommend this place to anyone for that special occasion but it does come with a big price tag but well worth it.

The room was very spacious with an amazing River side view. I booked the Deluxe King (which I believe is one of the standard room). The design understated, classy and minimalist – right up my alley. The bathroom huge with a generous, shower, toilet, bathtub and two sinks and large mirror combination. Bed and pillows were very comfortable and so was the lounge chair which you can lie flat comfortably on. There is also two TVs (one in lounge and one in bathroom). Bathrobe was super luxurious – too warm actually for autumn weather! Such was the quality.

Amenities were aplenty and the mini bar and pantry was well stocked (with paid and free items)

Swimming pool area was great! There’s even a heated section for those colder nights.

The lobby area was impeccable. Clean and spacious. The lobby bar was also very classy and well designed.

A very pleasant stay made that much more enjoyable by the friendly and attentive staff.
