“Great budget accommodation”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 20, 2013

Rooms were clean & tidy, lovely gardens, great service, quiet. No complaints. Had heard this budget accomm can attract large, noisy groups but that certainly was not our experience.
The gentleman on duty was extremely helpful and polite. Despite being right near a main road, it was incredibly quiet.

The Broome-time lodge was great value compared with a lot of other rentals / hotels in Broome. It was clean, spacious, well-equipped and a relaxing place to be. The pool area was lovely and the small shop well equipped with the basic essentials. The only potential down-side is its location. It is not central and is situated between the Cable Beach and Broome town areas. Having said this, the bus service is regular and reliable and if you rent a car the location will not be N issue. In fairness to the management, the location is clearly given so the lodge should not be graded down for this reason.

The staff were all really helpful, friendly and generally lovely. Even when we had some slightly bizarre requests: eg to borrow a scissors, pliers etc etc!

We would stay here again.

We stayed here recently overnight. Wasnt bad and good experience for the price we paid. People at the front counter were polite, location was good.

I do have 1 criticism though. The internal locks on the main entry door are bad. My 9 yr old daughter managed to sleep walk out the room onto the main balcony without our knowledge. Was it not for the wife you could here are repeated knocking that we found her in hysterics as she obviously couldnt get back in and in a foreign place in the middle of the night. After that... neither the wife nor I got any sleep.

Maybe an upgrading of the locking systems could be considered?

Situated halfway between Cable Beach and Town Center this is a great place to stay. Affordable with friendly staff. Nothings a problem with these guys and the local knowledge goes a long way. Clean Comfy, not the flashest place to look at from the street but i can see its a work in progress with bamboo slating replacing older color bond fences. Overall a nice safe friendly centrally located place to stay. Great if you have your own car, bus stops out front and a shopping center 10min walk.

We found the location a bit inconvenient without a car for the first few days - however, we got lots of exercise! We are used to walking long distances and it took us about 45 minutes to walk to the original main town area which is Chinatown. Definitely worth a visit - very quaint and interesting. Broome-Time Lodge is 15 minutes walk to the main modern shopping centre, the Boulevarde which has Woolworths, a nice fish shop and other shops. The bus fare is quite expensive which is $4 for adults and $2 for students. Overall, I would prefer to stay somewhere nearer to Chinatown or Cable Beach which means that I wouldn't have chosen Broome-Time Lodge had I known that it is quite out of town by foot. If you have a car, then it is fine. We did hire a car for 1 day to do some sightseeing and went on the bus tour of the Willie Creek Pearl farm -very informative so highly recommended. We stayed at Broome-Time Lodge for 5 nights and Seashells Resort in the Cable Beach area for 2 nights. Accommodation-wise, it was so much nicer at Seashells Resort but it was 50% more cost-wise but well worth it.

Hi Nqokuching,

Thank you for taking the time to review our property.

We believe Broome-Time Lodge is centrally located. We are located halfway between China-Town and Cable Beach making it a very short trip to either destination without the price tag of a 5 star property.

Yes, The Boulevard Shopping Centre is located just 1km from Broome-Time Lodge and it is very handy to have over 35 specialty stores located so close to us. This is just a 5 minute walk away – or the first stop on the town bus route.

The Town Bus service offers a great option of a $10.00 all day pass which allows you to ride the bus as much as you like all day. The bus departs from us every 30 minutes in the dry season making it very easy to travel around Broome. Information relating to our location is located on our website and is provided to all guests on arrival.

Thank you for the extra tips about Broome that I am sure the trip advisor readers will appreciate.
Kind Regards,

Brad Symons

Stayed here one night in June 2013, we had a very nice room with a comfortable bed, clean bathroom, lovely kitchen with all the mod cons, the hotel is halfway between the town centre and cable beach with a bus stop right outside the door. the staff were polite and helpful. there is a small store in the reception area to buy a limited range of groceries, pre packaged meals etc.
would stay again.
