We stayed at the Bayside Apartments which is directly opposite Matsos. Check in was a little confusing as you had to check in at Moonlight Apartments and walk about 200m down the road. The accommodation was simple but perfect. Had all amenities that we needed and a pool. It was a little dated and the air con was loud but still good. The best part was yet to come! We checked out in the morning and they offered to take our luggage and we could use the pool and facilities at Moonlight Apartments. This was awesome as we couldn't check in until 2pm for cable beach. It certainly added a nice touch to our stay.
Bayside apartments are across the road from Matso`s brewery & restaurant. The apartments are in walkable distance to China town & Town Beach. There is a bus service by Matso`s that takes you to all local areas if you do not want to walk. The rooms are basic but have what is needed for your stay. The air conditioning is very noisy so unable to sleep with it on at night. There is no WIFI at Bayside apartments. You can use the WIFI at Moonlight Hotel but it is not a secure site & we found that our devices would not allow us to use it. The pool area at Bayside does not have sunshades so very hot & the chairs provided are hard & uncomfortable to sit on for any length of time. You are able to use the Moonlight Bay Hotel while staying at Bayside, the poolside is much better than at Bayside with areas in the shade & more comfortable chairs. The location overlooks Roebuck bay.…
I had a very comfortable stay over 5 days. So what if the decor is a little dated- trust me, you don't want lux in Broome's red dirt. The room was clean and serviced every day. There is no shade around the pool so wear your thongs to the water's edge! I loved that I could buy a take away from the Night Markets and nuke it back in my apartment. I even cooked a couple of weekend morning fry ups. The management provided additional hangers and a clothes airer (I'm a diva) to make things more comfortable. The location is better than staying at Cable Beach because Old Broome is just a short walk from China Town, the weekend markets and Matso's is right across the road. There is also a bus service 2 minutes around the corner. to take you to the sunsets at Cable Breach.
Made a booking online, receive a confirmation number immediately and 2 hours later get a call and an email to say they are cancelling our booking due to no availability.....even though it was confirmed! Returned the call to receive zero customer service to be told. Oh well, you still have time to find other accommodation! We were not offered any other accommodation by themselves, even though they are part of an accommodation group and have other apartments / rooms within there accommodation group. It’s a blessing in disguise as there many other more modern accommodation available within Broome all of which offer great service all round! Do not recommend them!!
We ready enjoyed our four night stay here.We could easily walk or get the bus into town.We hired a car to drive to cable beach and the crocodile park and were able to park it by our unit which was very handy. This offers very comfortable accomodation with a perfectly adequate kitchen, bedroom and ensuite. It had good air conditioning albeit a bit noisy a nice patio and a small pool that was shared by others that were also staying in the small gated complex
