It was our little one’s birthday and since we didn’t throw him a party this year, we thought we’d surprise him with a last minute staycation at Crown Metropol Perth. We literally booked it in the morning and 2 hours later boom! We’re at the hotel ready to check in. Our son has been yearning to go into the pool whenever we dine at Nobu or Bistro Guillaume. Finally the day had come and he was over the moon!
We got to the hotel just before 12pm and despite the last minute booking, our room was ready before check-in time and we were given an upgrade! One big birthday surprise indeed! Checking in was a breeze and C was also presented with a kids activity pack. The room was equipped with 2 double beds and a luxurious deep soaking tub with a separate shower room. The room and bathroom is separated by a screen so you can still watch over the kids playing in the tub whilst relaxing in the room, or soak in the tub and watch tv! Our room was facing the wonderful picturesque Swan River and the grand pool. Luggage was delivered promptly and we got changed into our bathers, ready to hit the pools. No time to waste.
The highlight of the hotel. The pool! It’s massive!! It has various sections, cabanas, lounge chairs, deck chairs and umbrellas. There are also different pool depths to cater to everyone’s needs. There are also water slides, an outdoor heated spa and a water feature playground with water spray spouts and dumping buckets. We could have stayed all day!
After an hour or so at the pool, we were hungry but reluctant to get out of the pool We decided to have pool-side dining, something we’ve never done before! We went up to the poolside bar and grill and ordered a pizza and kids fish and chips. The wait staff then said ‘Don’t worry, go back and relax and we will bring the food out to you when its ready’, ahhh music to my ears! C thinks its such a treat eating right by the pool! There’s also complimentary icy cold water by the bar.

After an afternoon in the pool, we heading back to the room to shower and relax before dinner. C was enjoying the tub while the hubs was enjoying Foxtel sports. Just before dinner, we went to check out the kids playroom, located near the pool. It is very well equipped with a mini cubby house, slide, foosball table, chalk board, books, lego, puzzles, games, toy kitchen and lots more.
We went to C’s favourite restaurant, Nobu for dinner. Service and food was faultless as usual. With full bellies, we were more than happy to head back up to the room and relax.
We were given a late check out the next day so off to the pool we went again! What an amazing time we had at Crown. Definitely be coming back again no doubt!
