“Too pricy for the basic accommodation”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 June 2013

I would not recommend anyone to stay here while you are visiting the island. It was too expensive. It is better just have a day trip during the day and avoid stay in the rottnest island. They got no internet. Very basic motel level accommodation and service.

I thought do $225/night this place would be swish but it wasn't at all! VERY basic. No proper reception area and our courtyard room was just a room, it was more like a motel.

Good location not far from ferry but somewhere further away and on water would be better.

We stayed in the bayside rooms and rooms were really nice. Location is the best but it is too expensive. Also reception staff did'nt go out of their way to help. Apart of that was all good though and I would stay again but you can see why people travel overseas rather than Australia because its just not good value for money.

The quality of accommodation on Rottnest Island is not high. This hotel has a lot of history to it. We stayed in one of the 4 bayside rooms - don't book any other than these. Comfortable and clean and quite spacious. The best feature was the outdoor patio looking over the water at Perth and Fremantle. Dining at the hotel was quite good. We only stayed 2 nights and that is enough to see the island.

We were very pleasantly surprised by Hotel Rottnest. Having read negative reports on this forum, our experience was one of good customer service, clean and well furnished rooms representing good value and terrific food.

Did not meet expectations for the price paid. We sighted several long black hairs in the bathroom, and black hairs on the bed sheets. One of the glasses was dirty. Room did not feel fully furnished. Quality of sleep was not good as we were woken up several times throughout the night from noise outside.

However, the location was nice and central and we were allowed early check in which was a positive, however perhaps would've been better if we checked in at a normal time and they spent the extra time cleaning the room more thoroughly...

Rottnest Hotel was gorgeous! Great Staff, beautiful wine, and nice view. Loved how the Quokkas and Peacocks were wandering around freely. Nice seating and lots of it. The place looks flash but is actually very casual even staff were wearing their own sunnies giving it a laid back feel. After the long bike ride around the island it was nice to finish the day having drinks at Rottnest Hotel. Defiantly one of Australia’s hidden little treasures!!
