If you are planning a family-friendly staycation in Perth City then make sure you add Aloft Perth to your shortlist! Part of the Marriott chain and the first Aloft Hotel in Australia, Aloft Perth opened in 2017 and is located a short stroll from the banks of the Swan River in Rivervale.

Hotel Facilities

Families will enjoy making use of the 18 metre heated outdoor splash pool which is connected to the hotel’s W XYZ Bar meaning you can supervise the kids in the pool from the comfort of your sun lounger with one of their signature cocktails in hand. Don’t worry you can work off those cocktails later at the large fully equipped gym located on the mezzanine floor.

W XYZ Bar is located in lobby area and provides a comfortable spot to enjoy an evening drink with live music on weekends.

However, if you wish to enjoy your drink without your children disturbing the other guests you can choose to sit in comfort in the adjoining Re:mix lounge while the kids are occupied with a game of Foosball or ping-pong.

For our main course we enjoyed the Slow Cooked Pork Belly ($37) consisting of house pickles, creamed potato, apple chutney, pork crackle dust and the Scotch Fillet ($44) which came with duck fat kipfler potatoes, broccolini & pepper sauce. The food was divine and the service attentive.

Springs Kitchen offers an excellent kids menu with the meals being of high quality and accompanied by a healthy portion of side salad. Miss 9 declared her mash potato the best she had ever eaten!

Breakfast is served each morning in Springs Kitchen until 11am. During our stay only a la carte breakfast dining was available due to COVID restrictions but there is usually a breakfast buffet on offer too.
