Style

Best of the West

Setting

Arterial Murray Street

QT style reaches a crescendo at city-central QT Perth: Western Australian sleeping-quarters have never looked better, thanks to design-duo Nic Graham and Shelley Indyk, who have lavished the hotel with industrial-chic flourishes, local jarrah timber, Patsy Payne sculptures, polished brass and vivid velvets. It all feels uniquely Australian, thanks to cacti in the lobby, wildflower murals in the restaurant and cockatoo wallpapers in the rooms. Expect some very fine wining and dining, too: Santini is arguably the city’s best Italian restaurant and there are two brilliant bars, one graced with ravishing rooftop views. A prime city-centre location is the icing on the lamington cake.

Top Table

During the day, sit by the window for maximum natural light.

Dress Code

Avoid dressing in figure-hugging black threads from top to toe – you might get mistaken for a Director of Chaos (QT’s distinctly unchaotic bellhoppers).

Hotel restaurant

Santini Bar & Grill serves delicious Mediterranean cuisine in a vibrant, buzzing atmosphere – no wonder it’s pretty much packed every night. Be sure to sample the moreish squid-ink risotto, the market-fresh courgette flowers, the prosciutto San Daniele Levi and the delectable tiramisu.

Worth getting out of bed for

Start with what’s inside your hotel room: that inviting tub – and the bathroom’s stash of Malin + Goetz bath products. Grab a G&T at the rooftop bar or sample whiskies at Santini Bar. Take photos; post photos on Instagram; repeat. Wander around Elizabeth Quay, pausing for a bite to eat at one of the restaurants and a browse of the boutiques and museums. Go and admire the Swan Bells, aka the Bell Tower, at Barrack Square Riverside Drive. This Quasimodo-worthy set of 18 bells hangs in an 82.5- metre-high copper-and-glass campanile. Spend a quiet moment or two at the State War Memorial, at the top of Kings Park and Botanic Garden escarpment. The memorial pays tribute to Western Australian servicemen and women who have served in all of the wars and conflicts in which Australia has been involved. Add to your holiday wardrobe by ticking off the city’s obligatory retail lures: Murray Street and Hay Street.

Local restaurants

Begin the day at relaxed Tiisch: a cafe by day, bistro by night on Hay Street. Enjoy leisurely lunches of a modern Italian bent at Lalla Rookh on St Georges Terrace. Print Hall is an exciting multi-space complex set in the former headquarters of Perth's daily newspaper, The West Australian on St Georges Terrace. Eat at Gazette, the osteria, try Asian flavours at Apple Daily, or grab a coffee and cake from Small Print cafe.

Local bars

Stay put in Print Hall for cocktails at rooftop Bob’s Bar, named in honour of Australia’s third-longest serving Prime Minister: Bob Hawke. Equally lofty rival rooftop bar Prince Lane on Murray Street aces creative tipples; try lamington martinis or the refreshing Jack & Juice: Gentleman Jack and apple juice.

Anonymous review

Every hotel featured is visited personally by members of our team, given the Smith seal of approval, and then anonymously reviewed. As soon as our reviewers have returned from this vibrant hotel in Western Australia’s capital and unpacked their thongs (that’s Aussie for sandals), a full account of their city break will be with you. In the meantime, to whet your wanderlust, here's a quick peek inside QT Perth in Perth…

The QT hotel group isn’t exactly known for being a shrinking violet, and QT Perth showcases the brand at its boldest. Dramatic styling – lashings of ink-black and gem-rich hues – comes courtesy of acclaimed design-duo Nic Graham and Shelley Indyk, previously responsible for QT’s outposts in Melbourne and Sydney. It’s a partnership that continues to bear sartorial fruit. In tribute to the setting – Perth’s the capital of Western Australia – cockatoos flit across the wallpaper and wildflowers bloom in textured murals at Santini Bar & Grill. Speaking of which, expect some delicious dining: Santini seduces via the Mediterranean, with standout dishes such as squid-ink risotto – as jet-dark as the bedrooms – and a flawless tiramisu. The city-centre location puts all of Perth’s best bits on your doorstep – and obliging staff, including the distinctive Directors of Chaos – promise to bring them even closer.
