The Great Gatsby heads to Australia with the opening of Perth's newest and most interesting property, The Terrace Hotel. Its the first new hotel the open in the city since 2006 and this one plans to wow locals and tourists alike.

Housed in the 100-year old St. Georges House, there's respect to the building's history starting from the front terrace on through to the Art Deco decor and jarrah wood staircases. You'll think you've stepped foot in the 20th century.

There are only 15 guestrooms, eight of which are full suites. Each vintage designed room has all the tech bells and whistles with in-room iPads, Bang & Olufsen sound systems, AppleTV and free WiFi access. The Premier Suite is the real deal with a private dining room seating up to eight and overlooking the historic terrace.

Bringing the outdoors in is a focal point for the hotel. A large front terrace features an indoor/outdoor Teppanyaki grill and the back terrace has a more secluded garden area. Either choice, we hope speakeasy-style cocktails will be their specialty.

For those that prefer to dive head first into a wine list, this one will have your head spinning and we're not talking about the alcohol content. A private wine vault and sommelier's tasting room will delight any level of oenophile. Each of the 3000 bottles are carefully selected and guarded to ensure the taste is just right.

Just steps from high street shopping, beautiful parks and the city's iconic Swan River, this hotel just made our bucketlist. Heart of the city location and convenience with the feel of the roaring 20's and an air of mystery ticks all boxes for us. Oh yeah, and that wine list; that does too.

The hotel will officially welcome guests November 1st with rooms starting at $432 AUD ($447).

It is surprising such

It is surprising such a stylish interior to an otherwise rigid exterior of this small hotel. Perth is relatively quiet compared to Sydney or Melbourne but this hotel is centrally located and accessible.
