After touring the town we opted for lunch at the pub. We tried the local matsos ginger beer, but found it a tad too sweet for our tastes, and switched over to regular beer. We had two large pizzas between the 4 of us, and thought they were delicious! The barmaid service was magic. Pity its so far from Sydney... More

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.

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”.
