I have been coming to this heritage style hotel since November 2015 and been treated to a great time with excellent staff attending to your every need. It is a fully restored old hotel circa 1910 in the style of the times with sweeping verandas and large comfy rooms. Reminds me of some rural Chinese style hotel furnishings with dark... More

We had a brief stay here when travelling through Port Hedland. Nice looking building from the exterior, the staff were very nice, the room was quite dated, or at least that’s what it felt like. Everything was clean and the breakfast basket is sufficient to fill you up. A good place to lay the head but it would not set... More

Fairly good size room, high ceilings, bathroom with door and good size shower. Separate small area with tea and coffee and a bar fridge. No robe/closet! We had a queen size bed with a door off to the balcony. A table and chair set was just outside. Make sure to wipe down first, so much red dirt if your not... More

Always like getting dressed up for a night out and the esplanade is definatly the place to go! They have good food and good drinks. The drinks are expensive though, Around $20 per cocktail. Winter time is great, open mic night on sundays but they stop it for a couple of months over summer because its too hot. Inside bar... More

Stayed here for a night in November. A very nice hotel with great facilities. Nice little bar fridge and mini kitchen. Nice bathroom with toiletries. Balcony outside of room sweeps around the whole hotel like an old style saloon. Recommended

The Esplanade Hotel is well worth the stay. The check-in process was very friendly and efficient. The rooms themselves were well appointed, good bed, table, side tables and tall boy. The ensuite is nicely done with good shampoo products and soaps. There is a separate built in closet which also contains a bar fridge with a range of drinks and... More

Interesting hotel right in front of the port and very close to the beach and the middle of the touristic quarter. most of the rooms seem to be facing the long terrace of the first floor. It can be noisy because the activity of the port does not cease during the night. Our room was new and perfectly clean, laundry... More

With "Esplanade" in the name, you might expect a view, but I didn't get one. Check-in was friendly. My room was large enough but rather dully furnished. The TV was on the small side. The bathroom included a large spa bath that was awkwardly placed and very difficult to access. It took forever to fill, but it emptied very quietly.... More
