I have a love hate relationship with Hotel Rottnest. It is the best accommodation option that you will find on the island if you want Air conditioning, flatscreen tv and a room serviced daily. It is in a beautiful location on the beach and next door to the pub but the staff come across as if they do not want to be there. Service needs work or alternatively the prices should be lowered to reflect the service given. I found the cleaners gave me more of a smile and a happy chat than the rest of the staff.
Overall it is a lovely hotel and very relaxing, lots of space at the pub to sit down and watch the beach. It was very nice to return to the hotel after a day of cycling. The hotel has been recently renovated and much of its heritage has been maintained which is great to see. Quokkas sometimes come up into the pub and the resident peacock as well.
We stayed in the courtyard room and it is furnished to suit the beach lifestyle with photos of the island and hard floor covering.
The hotel location is incredibly handy as you can walk to the settlement, beach and other eateries. You can park your bicycles in front of the courtyard.
We had a super relaxing time at The Hotel but we wish the service is improved.
