I've been to Rotto many times but this was my wife's first trip, and she's a "foodie!", so we headed to the HR optimistic. We weren't disappointed at all, she had two seafood entrees while I went for my standard fish and chips. All our meals were excellent, and the service was great. But for mine the view and atmosphere...

Dear Guest, Your experince is not ok with us and certainly not indicative of the levels of service we expect each guest to receive.

Stunning day trip or a sleep over. Spent 2 nights @Rottnest Lodge; stuning water for swimming; restuarants we ate at served good food but a bit expensive. Drinls were very expensive. Lots for kids to do includong cycling around the Island.

Rottnest Island is a must visit place. Absolutely superb. The public areas of the hotel (bar etc) were great. But our room was not 4 star. In a courtyard with a budget motel feel I have to say it was over-priced. Our stay was not helped by there being a rock band (performing a day later on the island) who...

We couldnt fault the pizzas. This chef mixes cheeses and tasty ingredients to create original fare. The drinks service at the bar was efficient. As flies are a problem in Western Australia, it was positive to see a the table cleaner meticulously cleaning every table.

Have been a regular Rottnest Island visitor for the last 33 years. A very special place. However, for the last 10 or so years the Hotel Rottnest has excelled at disappointing and frustrating with service levels. Expect to wait for at least 20 minutes to get a beer if at all. If you do get served order two for each...

I am not sure what grading system was used to give this hotel its rating. Anywhere else in the world, and that includes major cities, the prices charged here would give you far more. Reception is a small unimpressive room obviously used for other functions as well. VERY basic room. Bed certainly too small for 2 averaged sized adults. Bathroom...

Stayed very recently for 2 nights, very close to the jetty and easy transport of luggage. On arrival we were given a room early, was really disappointed with it :/ was a tiny corner room which meant you walked in to a hallway where the desk/dressing table (with fridge) was. Bed was through an open doorway with no room to...

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 !!

Our Bayside rooms are the top of the range on Rottnest with private courtyards that overlook the majestic Thompson Bay, and are the only Rottnest Island accommodation with reverse-cycle air-conditioning.
