Pool, Beach Manor B&B, Perth

01 Beach Manor B&B
It's worth the seven-mile journey from central Perth to Scarborough Beach, where this upmarket B&B perches on the edge of the Indian Ocean. Interiors verge on the kitsch, but the sweeping views — six of seven rooms overlook the beach — more than make up for it. Doubles from £89. bedandbreakfastperth.com

Superior Room, Pan Pacific Perth

02 Pan Pacific Perth
Superior rooms can be snagged at this five-star hotel — overlooking the Swan River — for less than £100. Freshly caught seafood is served up in the award-winning Montereys Restaurant on weekends, while the outdoor heated pool is a bonus for such a central hotel. Superior King Rooms from £98. panpacific.com/perth

Four Points by Sheraton Perth

03 Four Points by Sheraton Perth
The stylish, modern rooms aren't exactly what you'd expect from a chain hotel, and neither are the prices — Four Points is staggeringly affordable for Perth. It's well located in the Central Business District and close to the shopping hubs of Murray and Hay Streets. Doubles from £69. fourpointsperth.com

Luxe Spa on Kensington, Perth

04 Luxe Spa on Kensington
Four comfy, well-equipped rooms above a day spa, this East Perth property is a little unorthodox, but a solid bet for those who like their independence. Guests have access to a communal kitchen, balcony and laundry, while breakfast is preloaded in your fridge. Doubles from £82. luxespaonkensington.com
