The owner was lovely, extremely accommodating! Willing to do anything to help. Ensured I felt comfortable. Even brought me almond milk to my room. Bedding was lovely and all amenities extremely clean. Will definitely be back and recommending to others wanting to stay in/around Perth. Stones throw away from the train station so even if visiting without a car, very easily accessible and easy to get to other places around. Cafe strip also very close.

Beautifully restored property, walking distant to all local amenities, very friendly hosts. Many thanks we really enjoyed spending our 27th Wedding Anniversary weekend in Guildford and the Swan Valley. Melissa & Tony.

Fabulous position and property Unfortunately the internet was hardly working. We would have loved a map in our room. A few things missing. But we should have gone to the office

Fantastic location if you are wanting to explore Guildford and the Swan Valley, which is why we stayed. It was also fabulous that we could walk to a number of different eateries, hotels and the local night markets. Would definitely book accommodation at the Guildford River Retreat again.
