We stayed here for 2 nights 18th to 20th April. Well we could not fault this hotel, all the staff was very friendly & very helpful, we loved everything about hotel. Room was cleaned daily, food was yummy & a good price. We defiantly think it was value for the price & we would highly recommend a stay here. Those...

Rooms were a bit squished but i had a corner room so luckily had extra space. Bed and showers were actually amazing, extremely comfortable. Little courtyard in the middle of all the rooms provided a nice little atmosphere to relax during the day. Just note: everythjng on the island is rather expensive compared to mainland.

We stayed in a Bayside Room for our honeymoon. They view is spectacular but the room is very over-priced. Clean and comfortable but not what I would expect for the room rate. Rottnest itself does not disappoint- we had the best time bike-riding, swimming, snorkeling & the weather was amazing.

Rottnest Island is stunningly beautiful, pristine and tranquil. Life if simple here. I had read that the hotel was more like a simple motel, but I understood why in its context, as soon as we arrived. We often stay in 5 star hotels - but that is not always appropriate, as in this case. We were here to have a...

Arriving at Rottnest Island for the first time was such a treat. Sparkling, aqua water, a sunny and bustling foreshore; it really is the perfect picture of a holiday town. The hotel is situated right on the front beach, close to the shops and that lovely water. We stayed in a courtyard room, which is tucked away behind the pub....

As soon as you get off the ferry at Rottnest you feel like you are on holidays. The Hotel Rottnest is a very average establishment in a fabulous location. The rooms are like poorly maintained motel rooms, reception is open limited hours, there is no restaurant with the accommodation so no breakfast facilities. The hotel (a separate business) has great...

We came over for barnsey and venue setup was the worst I have been to. 2hrs in ran out of coronas $68 for a bucket ?? 3 staff members in the bar I gave up waiting after 50mins in the line. What a waste of time worst venue for a concert ever. $99 for a ticket to get in $57...

This hotel has a fantastic location right on the waterfront. Problem is they pretty well rely on that to satisfy customers and sometimes it is not enough. For instance the restaurant is one of those where you go up to the bar and place your order. No-one tells you this. After sitting at a table for some time you finally...

Yes the drinks are expensive, so is everything in WA, however I think it's worth the extra for the view. My glass of wine was beautifully chilled and you can't beat the crispy chips doused in rosemary salt. The wait staff were friendly and literally ran to keep the pesky seagulls away.

We sat in our usual spot in the beer garden, the only people there. After getting our drinks a very unsavoury young lady came and asked us to move? I said we would if we could move towards the southern end. We then we're told about her horrendous day yesterday so I declined her offer to move. A guy came...
