I booked into the Rottnest Lodge for two nights in November. I was travelling alone and the main purpose of my visit was to get out and tour the island taking lots of photos, so I just needed somewhere comfortable to rest my head at night and shower. The room, a basic one, did just that. It was relatively large... More

I ordered the beef cheeks and it came all mashed up on top of 2 brocollini and mash. Not as flavoursome as I have had better. Lovely ambience as it's nice and quiet for conversations rather than the pub down the road.

So nice to spend overnight on the island. Enjoyed our stay - quiet escape from the hustle and bustle of the island. Very good service - especially in the dining room. Staff go out of their way to please. Swimming pool area can be noisy if lots of children around but a lovely area to relax in.

We enjoyed a 3 night stay at the Karma Rottnest Lodge in one of the "luxury suites" which means there is an extra bed and a nice little sitting area. We mostly sat on the veranda to watch the quakkas and the peacocks.. The room was comfortable and a decent mattress on the bed. The breakfast was very nice with... More

We've stayed at the Lodge a few times recently, and for Rotto it's good accommodation, very central, and sadly very expensive/way overpriced. I don't expect too much as its Rotto but this time a few things really irked me. The first day housekeeping came knocking to do our room at 4pm and we were having a rest so they left... More

My husband and I stayed in a room in 'The Quod' (the old prison) for $230 a night - it was during school holidays so higher prices are expected, but frankly I've stayed in better youth hostels.
