This is basically the place that the visitors to Rottnest Island come for a beer. I'm not going to suggest inhabitants because technically there are none, with the exception of some service staff and the park rangers. It is a pretty classy affair, which does go with the nature of the island, but it does stand out a bit from a lot of the other buildings scattered about. It was originally the governer's mansion, but, obviously, has since been turned into a hotel. They have a large outdoor area and a good range of beers on tap. Unfortunately, it really is one of the very few places to go on the island for a drink.
The Bar at Hotel Rottnest is well decked out with loads of seating inside and outside with Quokkas and a Peacock roaming the bar grounds. Broad selection of alcoholic beverages available at tourist prices. Simple but nice food menu offering fish & chips, burgers and pizza’s. Our meals were served in a timely manner. The food was good and the service was friendly.
