Just a one night stay but would definitely stay again. Very friendly service, comfortable room, had a little trouble closing the window. Great breakfast, centrally located.

Ambience and service
I spent 6 days at the Pinctada McAlpine House, from Oct 29–Nov 4, as a lone traveller. Instantly taken by the warm welcome and charm of both Marilynne (the owner) and Rinaldo (the manager), entering the property was like walking back in time. The ambience of this historic Broome homestead is magical with beautiful décor and exotic gardens. Marilynne and Rinaldo treat you like friends with nothing being too much trouble. I would thoroughly recommend this exquisite boutique experience.

McAlpine House is accommodation in a lovely garden setting of mango and palm trees. There are only 8 rooms for adults only (age over 16), most at ground level and adjacent a large swimming pool. The hotel has very pleasant and helpful management and staff. Marilynne and Ronaldo went out of their way to help us enjoy our stay. We stayed there for10 nights in August 2021 and were very sad to have to leave and return home at the end of our stay.

Quiet and serene
The house is more like a colonial cottage Surrounded by beautiful trees snd lush foliage It is not a modern, fancy place with masses of people Just 8 rooms with old fashion wooden floors, and old fashion personalised service With a smile, genuine concern and a clean pool The hosts are informative, fun and their employees are obviously happy in there work place A bit of a walk to the CBD especially in the heat of the day, but taxi transfers can be organised quite easily Enjoyed the ambience and the serene garden surrounds

Paradise in Broome
Staying at McAlpine House was like staying at a good friend's lovely home but not being allowed to raise a finger to help. You are looked after from the moment you arrive. Our room was very spacious with the charm of 1900's century tropical architecture with period furniture and original art on the walls. The breakfasts every morning are different and delicious and as you will eat around a long table with the other interesting guests, we often found that breakfast lasted for hours. The gardens and pool area are perfect with comfortable lounges for reading or just relaxing. There is secure parking and the House is close to town with all the wonderful restaurants. Marilynne and Renaldo will make sure that anything you need will be catered for----we would highly recommend this hotel----we found out about it from friends ourselves.
