Stayed here for 2 nights recently. Smallish bed but quite comfortable. Bathroom fairly basic and shower curtain was about 200mm too short and a lot of the water ended up on the floor which was quite uncomfortable. Rust in doorframe and generally fairly tired and need of a makeover. Bathroom accessories ie. shampoo, soap etc were good but bath towels...

Great 2 night stay at Hotel Rottnest - view from room was a brick wall - but the room was spotless, staff exceptional and we ate (and drank) in the bar both nights we were there - food was excellent and not too pricey !!

A group of us tried dinner at the pub. The children's menu is very limited. I ordered the slow cooked lamb shoulder and unfortunately it wasn't very nice- overcooked and the rest of the food looked like it had been in the plate for some time. Our friend tried the octopus salad and it wasn't the best either. Rest of...

Staying on Rottnest Island at another venue and decided to stop by here for lunch. The hotel itself does have a lovely outlook over Thomson Bay with plenty of seating options but the menu is very limited. I asked the staff if the menu changed for dinner but unfortunately no. If you are into wine/beer etc it has an extensive...

Rottnest is expensive for a short stay however once you get past that you will enjoy its charm. Pre-order your bikes from the fast ferry company so you're all sorted on arrival. The beauty of hotel Rottnest is that it's a 2 min bike ride down from the jetty. The staff were very friendly and helpful. We were upgraded to...

The hotel Rottnest is the fanciest accommodation on this small and beautiful island. We had a bay view room and the view was the best thing about this room. The walls were paper thin so we had to listen to the neighbors as they opened up their tv and rather loud conversations very early in the morning. Not what we...

Have just spent 2 nights on magical Rottnest and stayed at Hotel Rottnest. The location couldn't be better- right on Thompson's Bay, a short stroll from the ferry, supermarket, visitor centre and bike hire. It also runs a fabulous beachfront bar and restaurant and the food was great both times I ate there. The staff were friendly and helpful. The...

I have stayed at the Rottnest Lodge in the Lake View Rooms many times and have enjoyed it very much. On this visit, it being quiet and the winter months I decided to try the hotel, also certain sites were giving it a higher rating than The Lodge. Firstly the hotel has no proper reception area, they are using a...
