Found the hotel disappointing as they clearly cater for men especially in the front - sports bar. Had a meal at outside area which was good.

This is a big sprawling country pub but when we visited, twice, there was hardly a soul there. On the 2 occasions I ate there, the food was ok, but you couldn't say more than that. In an era when pub grub is normally good to excellent, the Roey falls well short of the mark.

Partner and I enjoyed the 2 for $40 steak and ribs deal. Food arrived at table promptly, tasted great. Plenty of seating. Typical small town pub. Relaxed atmosphere.

Not a nice place to have a drink. I'm not a fussy person but wish I hadn't gone there. It needs a lot of work done on it and nicer staff

there is the old bar with bar with plenty of blue collar workers and skimpy barmaids or the trendier side of the Roey, a good experience to see the old and new

The beers we had sitting in the shade outside the hotel were fantastic. We saw a few people eating lunch, and the meals looked very good, too.

We can enjoy fine dining and have done so many times. However, sometimes we just want an honest meal - straightforward fresh food...good value is a bonus. Roeys did just that. Going for a late lunch when it was quiet, my husband had lamb shanks - OK a bit too big but meat falling off the bone and tasty. I... More

Grilled barramundi, chips and salad were delicious. That was Friday's lunch special. The roast on Sunday for $19.90, would be worth a try.

Experience authentic Broome at the historic Roebuck Bay Hotel!

Fun and affordable, Broome’s longest standing hospitality establishment was built in 1890 to entertain the pearling crews and many of the pioneering workers of the day, something that the hotel continues to proudly do.

Known as the ‘The Roey’, the hotel is a one-stop for all your holiday needs; good quality accommodation; restaurants, bars and great live music year round in comfortable indoor and outdoor areas. The Roey also boasts Broome’s only nightclub – Skylla.

The Oasis Bar at The Roey is one of Broome’s best live music venues having hosted sell-out concerts of Paul Kelly, The Waifs, The Angels and many legendary Australian bands.

Located in the heart of Broome with Chinatown, stunning pearl shops, art galleries, restaurants, boutiques, book stores and much more all within walking distance - there is not a more convenient place to stay.

Book the Roey now and slip into “Broome-time”… after all “If it’s happening in Broome, its happening at the Roey”.
