Reviewed 15 July 2014

I stayed at the moonlight bay resort over night, the room was very clean and facilities were great. they also had friendly staff. however the downfall was the blinds... no privacy at all.. we couldnt sit on the couch watching tv because people from outside can definitely see straight through.. and when you have the heater or aircon on its blows the blinds and there goes all your privacy..so we had to turn the lights off and layed in bed cos it felt quite uncomfortable when people across or nxt door having a smoke outside they can see straight through. other then that it is budget friendly :)

My sisters and I stayed in room 237 for 6 nights and we were very very happy and comfortable, the suite was roomy and clean and nicely attended to each day. The suites are within walking distance of town, Matso's, the museum and Town Beach.

Room Tip: Make sure you look for the live 'cam' at the back of the building, overlooking Roebuck Bay...

We stayed at Moonlight Suites top floor over looking the bay from our balcony. Loved it. Woke up every morning to the beautiful sight of the bay. So peaceful. Swimming pool and gym.Self contained unit, with big shower and spa. Matsos Brewery right across the road, delicious food and beer. We ordered from our room and Matsos delivered to our door. Bus stop right outside Matsos, stops off at the major places like China Town, Boulevard Shopping Center and ofcourse Cable Beach. Loved it. Sad to have left. Definitely going back.

We had been recommended to stay on Roebuck Bay, as the hotels at Cable Beach are not on the beach and don't have sea views. On arrival we were disappointed with our garden view room, it overlooked a side street, and we were fortunate to be able to change after two nights to a ground unit near the pool. But I would highly recommend booking early, spending extra and having an upstairs room with private balcony, ensuring it was one with a view of the bay. As others have commented, the bottom rooms do not afford much privacy, you need to go to the pool/lawn area if you want to be outside as your doors open to the common walkways, and you also need to keep your shutters down if you don't want people walking by to look in your room. This means you lose a little of the feeling of the place.

My teen daughter enjoyed the gym.

My girls enjoyed the pool area, however it is unfortunate the pool isn't a little warmer, its peak season with many families here, and the pool is like ice, only my 8 year old was brave (silly?!) enough to be able to be in the pool for longer than a 30 second dip. others were also disappointed.

The staff were lovely, waiting times at reception can be long as there has only ever been one staff member there when i've been in, so just allow a little time. However all requests have been very expertly handled, and you can book tours through the desk.

Rooms are good, we've had two whilst here, great to be able to prepare our own meals as eating out in Broome can be expensive, and the bbq was spotless. A large fridge was helpful. Ceiling fans and air conditioner were noisy but essential. Hard to sleep with fan on high speed, which is a little frustrating.

Great location for accessing the shops, and a drink at Matso's next door a must. We had a car so town access not an issue but people are either walking the short distance or commenting how easy the bus is to use.

Note that despite being on the Bay, you can't swim here and there are mangroves between the hotel and the bay. Save your $$$$ and stay this side of town, i don't think you will be disappointed.

Room Tip: Choose upstairs with balcony if you want privacy. Request a room with a view over the bay.

Everything about Moonlight Bay is luxurious, I had such a lovely 11 night stay there. I stayed in a self contained Bay View suite on the 1st floor with the bedroom separate from the living area. There is no Restaurant/Cafe on site however Matso's Brewery Restaurant/Cafe is owned by the same company who run this resort and is across the road from Moonlight Bay Suites, Matso's is very good for breakfast and I can highly recommend the Pearler's Pale Ale beer in the evening. The resort is an easy 10 minute walk downhill to the town centre including Chinatown, the shopping centre including Coles supermarket and the famous Sun Picture Garden Cinema and when returning to your suite the town bus stops right out the front of Matso's, this hotel is very well situated, the suite was spacious with full self cooking facilities with stove/oven and a upright household fridge, nice comfortable bed, the staff were very exceptional helpful and friendly. (thanks Steve and Deb). Also the cleaning staff of the rooms were very good & friendly.
Stunning views of Roebuck bay with a large swimming pool. 2 BBQ facilities. If you want to stay in the township of Broome - the Moonlight Bay Suites is a good choice - the staff are unbeatable in friendliness and the suites are very comfortable.
Recommend pay extra for a Bay View suite on the 1st floor rather than a garden suite.

Great spot. We were unlucky to be in a room on the lower level, it did not afford any privacy. Not able to have door open, knowwhere to sit outside opposed to upper levels which had balcony with seating. Disappointing as this was discussed at time of booking.

I spent four nights here on a recent trip to this part of Australia.

Location: The hotel is about half way between the town centre and Town Beach, so is reasonably convenient for both.

Accommodation: The suites are a good size, with a fully equipped kitchen. The air conditioning is noisy though, as are the fans, and I had to turn these off, or at least down, at night or sleep would have been impossible.

Catering: There is no restaurant in the actual hotel, though you can buy a light breakfast pack. However, the associated brewery/restaurant, Matso's, is just across the road and offers a great range of foods, including cooked breakfast. The ales are good - my favourite was "Hit The Toad", and not just because of the name!

Amenities: There is a reasonably priced laundry, including driers, and a small gym. I liked the pool area very much, but watch out for that water - it's cold!

Reception: Great staff, very helpful and welcoming.

All in all, this was a positive experience. I particularly appreciated the restfulness of the place after a week's camping tour.
