How is a rodent allowed into a restaurant defacating all over the floor where food is being served. Food was ordinary also, fish of the day was a soup fish and the meat was brown. Staff weren't that interested and it is expensive

Had a lovely two night stay here! Nice clean spacious room with a nice comfy bed. The only down side was the duvet didn't seem to be well covered! The location is perfect and the bar and restaurant is great at this hotel! Would definitely stay again! Thank you!

Planned a day trip across to Rottnest with family who had travelled over from Melbourne (roughly 20ppl) and we decided to have lunch at Hotel Rottnest. We were served by extremely rude staff the entire time and I was embarrassed we had taken our visitors there. Other customers were also making similar comments to our group. Wont be going back...

Weather your drinking/dining inside our out, it's the view here that captivates your attention a good deal of the time. This extended Hotel does a great job at catering to young and old with a variety of Bar/service areas. Very family friendly here. Service I experienced was polite and quick. My last visit of 25+ years ago still reasonably familiar.

Well the fact that our room overlooked the beach and the water was the only plus! A very expensive night in a very average room. A very tiered property, service lacklustre, not even a breakfast on offer. Price would have indicated 5 star when in fact this room just scraped in to 3 stars.

Having never attended a concert at Rottnest Hotel, I was so excited about going over to see John Farnham and Darryl Braithwaite on Sunday 12 March. Who organised this totally un-organised event??? 3 ladies toilets for an expected 3,000 people. People drunk everywhere, so obviously no close vigilance on people who were severely under the influence of alcohol continuing to...

Rude staff dampened what had started out a brilliant day. Unfortunately there are few places to eat and we were so hungry we didn't want to chance anywhere else. Have been here countless times and so disappointed to see the decline in customer service. Food still good, scenery always spectacular, surly service staff a turn off!

Went to the rotto pub for a nice meal, as we always come over on the boat and love it at rotto. I simply asked for no beetroot and feta sauce on a burger (wtf is that anyway), was told by a French female upon ordering 'tough luck it's coming with everything'. Just stared at her in disbelief and she...

We stopped in for a meal at the outdoor bar on Feb. 27 at 4:30 p.m. There were perhaps 8 to 10 other customers in the entire bar. The wait staff ignored us, and when we asked about menus, she gestured toward some menus on a nearby table. We took one, had a seat at a table and...waited. And waited...

Dear Guest, Unfortunately, on this occasion our reservation system has let us down, and we were left without a reasonable alternate but to contact the last booking made as soon as we become aware of the overbooking. We certainly wanted to accommodate your interest in staying at our property hence an alternate date being suggested, or if an alternate date...
