    Everything. Continental breakfast had a great choice of food, and the quality excellent. Rooms perfect, ambience wonderful, location great! I liked it all!

    Fabulous

    The relaxed charm of the gardens and old Broome style houses. The friendliness and helpfulness of staff. The capacity to walk into town at night and access a range of restaurants.

    The airconditioning was too cold and we were unable to turn it down.

    The friendliness and helpfulness of the staff. I knew the trip and stay in Broome would be difficult, as I had the daunting task to take my brother back home for burial and also sort out his home and personal details. It was lovely to be able to come back to my room, have a drink and relax outside - gather my strength and thoughts before I continued on this journey for my brother. I am so thankful that my wife Lorna booked me into the Pearler Verandah room for seven days. It was the best place I could have had chosen for me. The breakfasts were so delicious and it set me up for the morning. Thank you to all the staff who helped me through the week.

    I cannot find any fault in my stay at Pinctada McAlpine House. I would like to mention that on your web site you advertise that breakfast is included in the price and this is not the case. This did not worry me as I still had to have the delicious breakfast that was being served.

    The tropical oasis in the middle of a very busy town; very quiet & peaceful stay.

    The only thing would be very noisy pet birds very early in the morning; not a huge problem unless you want a sleep in.

    Only stayed one night but immediately felt relaxed. Whole 24 hrs was excellent

    Nothing really. Maybe external lights near rooms could be turned off/dimmed at night?

    Good

    McAlpine House is a an older building constructed of corrugated iron, as are most buildings in Broome, with wooden plank floors. It is quaint, in a picturesque setting, with quite tropical gardens. The staff were friendly and helpful, though reception is only open until 3pm. It retains an image and feeling of yesteryear, and is not too far to walk to the main town area (about 20mins, or taxi $10) and to some of the other venues. There is a simple pool and comfortable lounge. The room was adequate, and the bathroom newer and quite acceptable. We hired a scooter to get around Broome, and the hotel provided free parking behind security gates.

    As McAlpine House is an older building of simple construction, the walls are paper thin and noise is an issue - especially the old squeaky floorboards. Though this was only a significant issue on one night with others passing and congregating near our room. As a bed and breakfast venue, I would not recommend the breakfast to anyone. It is more than sparse and the sight of masses of flies sucking fruit through the flymesh was most off-putting. Staff only operate at the venue until 3pm each day.

    A really nice laid back atmosphere with classy old style heritage rooms. They have an unreal tree canopy over their outdoor decking as well.

    Superb

    The historic house has been lovingly restored and this made for a vry special experience. A lovely indulgent mini-stay.

    Everything was beautifully presented, however we felt the breakfast was a little on the modest side. Even a Continental Breakfast these days will offer some extras, a boiled egg perhaps, or some ham or cheese. However this is a minor consideration and we did enjoy our stay very much and would love to return some day.

    Very good

    The genuine Broome pearling captains experience Corrugated iron walls, red lattice,greenery , library, rare birds, and comfortable outside sitting/ Dining area great. Check in time at 3PM when unattended reception was incongruous.Breakfast OK. Worth staying if based in Broome town rather than Cable Beach.

    Check in to unattended desk after 3PM

    Superb

    We stayed at McAlpine house for a weekend getaway. The tropical gardens give you a sense of serenity and isolation when in fact it is conveniently located to most that Broome town has to offer. We found the room spacious with good facilities. The pool area was relaxing with comfy lounges and seating next to an inviting pool. It is a lovely boutique hotel.

    Fabulous

    The gardens were wonderfullly relaxing and charming. Old world tropical feel. Great for a couple or older family. Was upgraded to Pearler Verandah.

    Possums/bats dropped fruit from the palms onto the roof at dawn but that was part of the charm of the place.

    Old world charming ambience. Lovely gardens.

    Lack of servicing of rooms. Every third day not good enough. Requested not to consume own liquor. However, bar not open in the evenings so no chance of having a pleasant pre- dinner drink and enjoying the lovely surroundings.

    We love the old colonial atmosphere of the house. The garden is a delight and the breakfast was superb. The room was comfortable and cool and the staff helpful.
