              Broome W.A. in JulyBroome is a great place to go to in early July to escape the cold of the southern states winter. Mcalpine House Hotel is a great place to stay. Its not the most modern fitted out hotel. It is situated in a warmer climate in July and is close to the Town Beach and walking distance to Chinatown. There is a regular local bus service nearby which stops at Chinatown & Cable Beach. With its old world style, Mcalpine House has some minor draw backs as it is basically a renovated old homestead the drawbacks are more than well countered by the warmth and friendliness of personel, Marilyn (owner) and Ronaldo (a knowledgeable, do anything Mr Fixit)

              A wonderful character building, Part of Broome history. Beautifully decorated, Spoilt by poor staff and management

              Disappointing, Have stayed at Mc Alpine on five wonderful occasions and referred it to many friends. This time the greeting was unfriendly and inappropiate and service was non existant. Had to stay elsewhere because staff did not even know that the double beds could be split into 2 singles, when the place had 3 vacant rooms. I was willing for my mother-in-law and my daughter to share a room but not a bed.

              Very enjoyable, staff could not be more friendly or efficient. One lady did everything. If staff is important to you, this is is one of the best hotels ever. I'm delighted I picked this one, but I hadnt realised how difficult it is to get around broome. Best to organise transport in advance. The room needed a desk n a chair for writing.

Lovingly restored and full of character but with modern amenities (air con, bathrooms, pool etc)Shady gardens with dining and relaxing areas among the rain forest trees this is an oasis in the heart of Broome. Staff were friendly and helpful and nothing was too much trouble. We had an evening flight out and they were quite happy for us to stay and relax there after we had checked out and use the pool etc. Will definitely return

              Historical property in 'Old Broome'

              We enjoyed our stay at this lovely hotel until it came time to leave. The hotel had no record of our payment through Agoda and we were asked to pay again before we departed. It has taken numerous phone calls and emails to Agoda and Pinctada to finally resolve the matter-in all it has taken 8 days. If we had not persisted we wonder just how long it would have taken to refund our money as their accounting system seems to leave a lot to be desired.

Prue was very helpful, and a charming lady. The rating for food below, is poor because of the lack of a restaurant. As stated above, the continental breakfast was very nice.
