Santa Monica-Style Stay in Perth
Situated across the road from Perth's most famous stretch of sand, the Cottesloe Hotel inherited a classic Aussie address. The downstairs pub is more than a century old, but the patio has been reinvented as the Beach Club, a sprawling beer garden that wouldn't look out of place in Santa Monica. There's an open kitchen cooking surprisingly good shared plates (try the spicy lamb meatballs or one of the Neapolitan-style pizzas) and multiple bars dispensing quality wines and Western Australian craft beers.
