Rambling, stately, Mango and Tamarind tree shaded villa in Central Broome. A giant step back in time- corrugated roofs and walls, latticed, shaded verandas, original wood furniture and artifacts, lush gardens. A reasonably simple continental breakfast is served. Our stay in a garden suite was spacious, comfortable, with coffe, tea, wine glasses, fridge, marble shower, and extremely accommodating staff. A... More

We stayed here about 3 years ago so thought it would be good to revisit. We spent 6 nights and must say that we were disappointed with the overall experience. The property is very tired and due for an overhaul or some substantial maintenance. We stayed in a verandah room. The room was dirty particularly the bathroom with a build... More

We only had a one night stop over but we were made very welcome and the property was charming. Our king size bed room had french windows on both sides opening on to pleasant verandahs. A continental breakfast was included but I would have liked the option for eggs or something more substantial as I do not tolerate milk so... More

This is a great place to stay in the non-Cable-Beach end of Broome. It's a place with a wonderful history, and in its current incarnation as a B&B, it's well worth a visit. With only 8 rooms, it's got a feeling of exclusivity to it - and enables the welcoming hosts to add that more personal touch. We stayed in... More

If you want a hotel with all night discos,multiple restaurants, bars and wall to wall waiters - don't go to Mc.Alpine House. But if you want to experience a palm shaded oasis of calm, relaxed, space in a setting of luxurious old world charm - you can do no better in Broome. This small complex of only 8 very ample... More

McAlpine House was the original home of Lord McAlpine and has been extended and modified as a restful guest house set in tropical gardens round the pool. Our Library 2 room was quite small with very comfortable bed, bathroom with shower and good fittings - there was a large verandah area with very comfortable outdoor seating, as there is throughout...

We had a very peaceful & relaxing weekend. The rooms are beautiful and the setting is very private. The managers are helpful & friendly and We would recommend to anyone looking for somewhere to stay in Broome away from the hustle & bustle.

Lovely old style accommodation with tropical gardens and birds. Very relaxing and lovely staff. We had to stay an extra night due to the cyclone flooding and the staff were very friendly and helped us to our needs. Nice continental breakfast of toasts and pastries and yoghurts and fruits, with plunger tea and coffee - all you need to start... More

I felt like it was my own house and garden, I was really relaxed after a couple of days. The lovely gardens and pool area are a fantastic feature, complements to the previous owners. At dusk the fruit bats proved to be noisy companions, dropping mangos but missing us every time. The light breakfast did the job, anything more would... More
