I believe this place has changed management hands as it is now called Lodestar Waterside Apartments. The girl on reception acted like we were getting in the way of her day and it was a hassle to check us in. The room - well I would not stay again. First you walk into the kitchen with laundry facilities on your left (yes handy), no issues so far. Then you look at the carpet... I don't think it has been cleaned since the 80's. What grossed me out the most was in the bedroom there was blood like drips on the carpet at the end of the bed. The lounge couch was out dated and trust me you would not walk around without shoes or socks in the apartment.Bathroom was again very old but I would rate it the only clean part of the place. My advice - please avoid.

We only stayed one night after flying in and probably wouldn’t want to stay much longer. It was clean enough and the bed was comfortable but the property has seen better days. Reception has limited hours and the property is close to the freeway (the units at the front would be noisy). Worst part of the stay was the VERY tight parking...anything bigger than a mid-sized SUV would face serious challenges negotiating the road that circles the units. For $120 though it was reasonably good value.

When looking for reasonably priced accommodation in Perth this place could be on your list however the flip side is lodgings that are due for a face lift. If you're not too fussy then you'll be fine, great location and close to all you need just don't set expectations too high.

The rooms were clean and tidy. We had 4 adults and there was only a two seater lounge then 4 uncomfortable chairs to sit on. The bathroom was huge but there was a very tiny shower. There were no lights on the walkway at night. As it was raining it was dark and slippery. Lights need to be fix.

Loved the location, also they allowed more than 4 ppl without any fuss, great long stay without any issue, also very well behaved staff......nothing to complain about. everything was great and value for money

Good unit in an easily accessible location, walking distance to Perth zoo and South Perth ferry, with good parking. I left my iPod here after checkout, and they called to tell me, then posted it back, so excellent service.

My husband, son and I were upgraded to a 2bedroom apartment upon arrival. Great deal for the price. A lovely stroll to the ferry and other amenities. Comfortable bed and pillows too. Would recommend to small families.

We have stayed at Waterside assured before and have always found it comfortable and very clean. The facilities are really great. The location is wonderful and only a short walk to the ferry to the city. We use to stay in apartments in Leederville, but since discovering Assured waterside Apartments have changed to there. Far superior to anywhere we have stayed before. My sister visiting from Adelaide was really impressed and will stay there next time she visits Perth.

We arrived late afternoon on a Saturday afternoon and needed an accommodation for one night before heading south towards Margaret River. This accommodation met our needs There is a 24 hour IGA supermarket near by at Preston Street, where we almost had dinner

We stayed in the Waterside apartments for three months and it was a very good place to stay . The staff in every department were very helpful and pleasant at all times .Easy access to local transport and very pleasant walks around the Swan River . Also you will find good restaurants in the area. Will be going again .
