“The locals Pub!”
Review of Roebuck Bay Hotel

Roebuck Bay Hotel
Ranked #46 of 73 Restaurants in Broome
Cuisines: Australian
Description: Experience authentic Broome at the historic Roebuck Bay Hotel! Fun and affordable, Broome’s longest standing hospitality establishment was built in 1890 to entertain the pearling crews and many of the pioneering workers of the day, something that the hotel continues to proudly do. Known as the ‘The Roey’, the hotel is a one-stop for all your holiday needs; good quality accommodation; restaurants, bars and great live music year round in comfortable indoor and outdoor areas. The Roey also boasts Broome’s only nightclub – Skylla. The Oasis Bar at The Roey is one of Broome’s best live music venues having hosted sell-out concerts of Paul Kelly, The Waifs, The Angels and many legendary Australian bands. Located in the heart of Broome with Chinatown, stunning pearl shops, art galleries, restaurants, boutiques, book stores and much more all within walking distance - there is not a more convenient place to stay. Book the Roey now and slip into “Broome-time”… after all “If it’s happening in Broome, its happening at the Roey”.

Reviewed August 26, 2012

No visit to Broome would be complete with a beer of three at the Rowey, as it's known. Make some time to drop in!

This is an iconic hotel well worth a visit & it is really huge. The sportsmans bar is known for its beer & scantily dressed waitresses , the restaurant was popular with the meals quick & really tasty in a nice outdoor seating environment.There is a lovely outdoor bar & it was a nice place to stop for a while.

“Nice meal”
Reviewed July 24, 2012

Choice of inside or outside. Typical counter meal - order meals and drinks separately. Big serves with a nice variety of meals. We went for lunch and it was nice to be outside.
