“Fascinating History”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2013

This was a really interesting place to visit. It isn;t until you gain some back ground on the Island that you can understand it;s fascination for tourists. You can walk around the island and view the huts when you leave the museum. I actually saw some kwoka;s I think that Rottnest Island is the only place that they exist in Austalia. This is a real gem for some authentic history regarding Aboriginees. Definitely would recommend worth a visit.

Stayed in a room overlooking the bay. We had an additional rollaway in the room and still had heaps of room.
Close to everything going in Rottnest. Reception welcome was a great start to our long weekend. Bike rack close to room.
Pub served up great food and although very crowded service was excellent.
Will definitely be going back again

The rooms are clean and modern. It's located close to the village and restaurants, which is great if you like people (and crowds)!
The pub is good - ok food (overpriced, but that's Rotto for you) and sports on tv. Music on a Saturday night is great.
All in all, good!

I cannot understand this hotel is rated as nice one, because our room had no view except a playground, facility was poor, no bike space in front of the room. To be fair, the stuff was really nice, they let us in the room before the check in time. Anyway, I won't stay this hotel again.

I would not recommend anyone to stay here while you are visiting the island. It was too expensive. It is better just have a day trip during the day and avoid stay in the rottnest island. They got no internet. Very basic motel level accommodation and service.

I thought do $225/night this place would be swish but it wasn't at all! VERY basic. No proper reception area and our courtyard room was just a room, it was more like a motel.

Good location not far from ferry but somewhere further away and on water would be better.

We stayed in the bayside rooms and rooms were really nice. Location is the best but it is too expensive. Also reception staff did'nt go out of their way to help. Apart of that was all good though and I would stay again but you can see why people travel overseas rather than Australia because its just not good value for money.
