A wonderful place to stay!. After spending a week in perth we decided that we wanted a rest and the Mc Alpine House Hotel was the perfect place. I would advise a car to get around the area, mainly due to the heat!
The hotel location is a little way out of town, but we did walk on a few occassions.
What we enjoyed the most was being able to discover Broome and surrounding location during the morning and then spend a relaxing afternoon lazing around the pool at McAlpine House. The garden atmosphere is Tropical and just adds to the whole experience. We stayed in one of the garden rooms, which are new and very tastfully decorated, the only downside, which was a shock on the first morning was the early morning greetings from the Hotels resident Parrots.However this is something that like the rest of the hotel, just all blends in to a lovely experience.
Rooms are well stocked with a Mini Bar.
Breasfast is served in a dinning room that is a mixture of modern art and antique furniture. There is a good selection of Fresh Fruit, cereal,yoghurt and bread. Freshly brewed Coffee and Tea which you make yourself.
Hotel Staff are really friendly and helpful. They organised our car hire and trips and there is no agenda they are just offering a great service, what we found amazing was that pick ups, drop offs and transfers were all free.
There is a sense of freedom at McAlpine house that is not to be missed.
A final note, when you compare the local hotel prices McAlpine works out to be about the same as some of the beach resorts. However if you want piece and quite and an incredible place to stay then choose McAlpine and hire a car or use the town bus, because it is worth it.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- As soon as you step through the modest white picket gate onto a path sprinkled with frangipani flowers and shaded by towering palm trees, you know instantly that you are entering a special place of relaxation and solitude. The former home of Lord McAlpine, Pinctada McAlpine House has been meticulously converted into a private 8-room lodge - perhaps 'oasis' is a more fitting description. A subtle blend of historical charm and modern facilities makes McAlpine House the perfect place to reawaken the spirit. Wide open verandahs and polished timber floors complement a wonderfully relaxed atmosphere which slowly extinguishes your sense of time. We encourage you to make our boutique lodge your home for as long as you stay. By day, the atmosphere is shaped as much by the lush tropical gardens and exotic birds as it is by the personalised attentive service. At night, enjoy a moment of calm by the turquoise waters of a pool lit by a myriad of tiny lights. World class resort? Private retreat? Luxury guest house? McAlpine House defies classification, and that is precisely why it is such a unique place to completely rejuvenate your soul. With just eight rooms - each with its own style and private outdoor escape, a sense of space and escape is blended with a feel of intimacy and serenity. Create your own world among the original artwork and decor reflecting the unique colours and textures of the Kimberley, or step outside to explore the wonder, beauty and contrasts of Broome's azure waters, sweeping white beaches, distinctive red earth and eclectic culture. ... more less
