Come and experience a stay in one of Perth’s most unique Heritage Buildings!

The Swan Barracks was built in 1896 and the central stone tower and enormous drill hall behind it have the distinction of being the oldest buildings in Northbridge. In January 2008 the buildings were subject to a massive internal upgrading – totally geared towards the ongoing comfort of our international visitors. The blend of modern facilities within this majestic and imposing building now provides the visitor with a sense of history as well as a comfortable stay in what is a very bright and atmospheric environment.
