Where to stay in Perth over the New Year Image

With Christmas and New Year’s Eve fast approaching, it’s easy to feel like you’re being pulled in every direction. But between work, family, and social events, planning ahead is the best way to get on top of your holiday season. 

Booking your accommodation in advance puts you ahead of the curve when you’re looking for where to stay in Perth to enjoy every aspect of the holiday season. Pier 21’s boutique hotel apartments place you in the heart of Fremantle’s bustling tourism hub, only a short 30-minute commute to Perth CBD. 

Nestled on the edge of the famous Swan River, between tropical greenery and river views, a staycation at Pier 21 is the ideal place to wind down with friends, family, and loved ones.

If you haven’t stayed with us before, here are a few reasons why it’s the perfect place to spend your New Year.

There’s something for everyone at our riverside hotel

We know that the holiday period gets busy, so Pier 21 offers a wide range of facilities to service the whole family. Whether you’re holidaying with friends, working away, or booking a family staycation in Perth, our hotel apartments provide entertainment for every interest.

Our pool, spa, and outdoor lounges offer the perfect spot to work on that holiday tan and soak up WA’s famous summer sun. Work up a sweat in the gym or on the tennis courts, or if outdoor activities are more to your taste, we also offer SUP boards and fishing rods to make the most of our riverfront location.

Comfort is key

Our spacious boutique apartments combine leisure and practicality to ensure your stay with us is as stress-free as possible. We prioritise variety and flexibility in our accommodation options to meet the needs of each individual guest.

With a choice between terrace, river, or garden views, serenity is in no short supply. Generous, airy, and naturally-lit rooms make our accommodation feel homely yet luxurious, and provide an ideal setting to wind down for the end of the year.

Our hotel apartments include a kitchenette, lounge area with a TV, iron and ironing board, plus other handy amenities to make your stay easy and accessible. Plus, don’t forget to try out our breakfast lounge from 7.00am – 9.30am every morning to explore our menu filled with continental, vegan, and gluten-free options—perfect for that first slow, lazy morning on January 1st.

Our hotel in Fremantle is family-friendly…including four-legged family members!

With all the craziness of the holiday season, it can be a competitive time to find a dog sitter. But wouldn’t you prefer to have your four-legged family there to celebrate with you anyway? At Pier 21, we include ALL members of the family and offer dog-friendly options too. Our variety of rooms, short-stay apartment suites, and hotel facilities mean there’s plenty of space and versatility to bring your pets along to celebrate. 

We love being able to provide affordable options for everyone to bring along their pets and have a proper holiday together.
