hi, just reading all the negative comments about rottnest lodge makes me sad. it is pricey but to be on the island is a very special treat. we have been going to rottnest, (2 adults, 2 kids) for many years now, unfortunatly we are unable to go into the ballot for accomodation for family reasons but when we need to go we need to go! we often swap accomodation circumstance over the nights we stay and we dont care its just so lovely to be there. we have stayed at nearly all the different accomodation available and have had a wonderful time, including the rottnest lodge. yes maybe the decor is a bit old but i would hate to see anything changed other then linens and bathrooms tweaked. we are so anxious things might change for the modern and worse in times to come, the fact all acccomodation is so basic gives a lovely feel of what used to be. the pilots cottage was the most beautiful place we stayed a big garden, fireplace chimney enlightened by beautiful lights hardly anything changed since the pilot lived there, i could live there till i die. barracks so exciting, so basic but original i lay in bed reading with my legs out the window thinking of the troops, exploring the mess hall sparrows and all thinking am i the only person whos been here in god knows how long....dong change it. it doesnt matter where we stay its all amazing and priced becauseof its exclusiveness if you want to go to rottnest dont complain. if there wasnt quokka poo everywhere in the morning i would be let down, its such a unique place, imagine staying in a safari park in africa and finding lion poo just outside your dwellings would it not make you so excited and tell your friends? the only problem we ever had was on our last trip a month ago we werent staying at the lodge but had dinner there, wonderful service lovely chats with staff but my husbands steak was overdone, no dramas it was quickly rectified and we had an amazing meal, much prefer this menu to the last, beautiful options. we are heading back in the next week to stay at goveners circle and then the lodge so excited, dont change too much rotto it even took me a while to adjust to the new clothes shop and general store renos but theyre lovely. cant wait to see you for dinner on the 11th at the lodge, reccommend rotto to everyone its such an amazing place and i hope when you see it you wont want it to change either.
