Medihotel

The Royal Perth Bentley Group Medihotel was developed to bridge the gap between hospital and home. It provides a comfortable space for guests while allowing hospital beds to be given to patients who need them most.

Located on Level 11 in A Block at RPH, the Medihotel has four patient rooms, each with a bathroom and access to a communal kitchenette and lounge area. The Medihotel operates 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
