good location, staff were great

Posted Dec 6, 2016
Pros: the staff and the location close to everything and the lake view room had a good view
Cons: defrost the regularly, provide softer pillows
Location: great location very close to shops and bus stop and only a little bit farther to the beac
All accommodation is pricey on Rottnest, especially for what you get. Pillows were too hard, bed was not that great, room was spacious ( first room had issues so we were moved) shower was great plenty of water and nice and hot.Bar fridge was completely congested with ice and so not working well, couldnt make ice in the tray it had, it was in bad need of defrosting to allow it to work properly.

Attractive hotel with good facilities.

Posted Nov 3, 2016
Pros: The public areas. Its central location
Cons: Clarification over check in times. More consistency of staff training in customer care.
Location: Everything on Rottnest is nearby or easily accessible.
We stayed just one night on Rottnest as part of a 3 weeks trip to the southern part of Western Australia. The public areas were very attractive - clean, spacious and well laid out. Our room - a standard lake side room was also spacious and equipped with everything we needed for our brief stay. The terrace area was not really conducive to sitting out with very basic chairs and a view of roofs and tree tops. The lake could only be glimpsed from certain angles which was disappointing as we had assumed we would actually be able to see it and we had hoped to look at the birds. We ate dinner in the Riva restaurant and were satisfied with our choices of food and wine. The waiting staff were friendly and helpful. We found them rather less helpful at breakfast (which was a really great meal), as we were left uncertain about where we could sit, the buffet arrangements were not explained and our table kept being cleared when we were not finished.

We are pleased that you enjoyed your stay at Karma Rottnest. The Lakeside Standard rooms do not have a guaranteed view. For future stays, we would recommend one of our Premium Lakeside rooms which all have a guaranteed view out across Garden Lake. Regards Management Regards Management

Great Island

Posted Oct 31, 2016
It was all there , clean , spacious, but a bit dated. Not such a nice location as we expected. the view from our room was directly onto the road outside and the veranda which stretched along the length of the hotel. The food was good and the staff ok.

Hi Derek, We have a range of room types here at Karma Rottnest. The Palm Court Deluxe rooms have french doors that open out onto the shared verandah. While these rooms do not have a water view they look out over the Morton Bay fig trees here on the island where the islands friendly marsupials the Quokkas gather to enjoy the figs that fall from the trees. If wishing for a water view from the room during your next visit to Rottnest we would recommend one of our Premium Lakeside rooms which have a beautiful outlook across Garden lake from the private balconies. Regards Management

The room and amenities were good. The restaurant staff were very friendly and efficient. Food was great. Front line staff could be a bit more forthcoming

We stayed in a double standard room the room was clean although Thebes was rock solid and the furniture was old and dated.The breakfast was lovely if rooms were renovated I would recommend to friends.

Winter Escape with Family

Posted Jun 9, 2016
Pros: Location, staff, food, facilities
Location: Walking and cycling on Rottnest - everything is close by - boys enjoyed the golf club
Location was excellent - really enjoyed our evening meals in the restaurant - service, food and wine were all excellent. The Governors Bar was a great choice to watch the football - sadly didn't help our team to win!!! To top it off a fabulous relaxing massage in the day spa - never failed to impress We'll be back

Awesome. Except for the noise

Posted Apr 24, 2016
Very nice hotel, great location. Nicely done up. Shame the pub music poured into our room (which wasnt even that close to the pub!). Strange as the pub is part of the hotel complex...
