A place to rest, revive, or retreat From Governor's Cottage, to the jewel in the crown.....

Construction of the original building began in 1859, and was completed by 1864, serving as the summer residence of WA Governor's until 1912. Planning for Governor's Cottage to become accommodation facilities began in 1913, and opened in 1917. At this time the Rottnest Island Board of Control was created, and the island was opened to tourism.
In 1953 the building was converted into the Rottnest Hotel. Until 2000 the hotel was operated privately, with a succession of licensees. The hotel lease returned to the Rottnest Island Authority in 2000 and was officially renamed the 'Quokka Arms' by Minister for Tourism, Mr Bob Kucera on October 2, 2004.
In November 2007 Garrett Hospitality was granted the lease to operate the Quokka Arms. In May 2008 we began the first stage of the historic hotel's transformation. The original central building is being restored, the main bar and kitchen has been completely rebuilt & the courtyard landscaped with a new island bar added.

The bars weren't the only areas to be completely refurbished. Our hotel rooms have been given a makeover from headboard to shower, and everywhere in between. This is the way to treat yourself when staying on Rottnest Island.
Hotel Rottnest's 18 rooms have a fresh new feel, and modern decor. Located at the south end of the venue the rooms are just a stones through from the majestic Thompson Bay. The property boasts 4 bayside rooms with their own private courtyard only metres from the ocean. The remainder of the rooms are courtside rooms which open onto a secluded courtyard that is reserved exclusively for hotel guests. All rooms are designed to sleep two in either twin single beds or a queen bed. Each room is equipped with a plasma TV, mini bar, tea and coffee facilities and are serviced daily.
All of our rooms have been furnished to the highest standard, with complete relaxation in mind. So if you are tired of all that sun, the white sand beaches, clear azure waters, and all the attractions that Rottnest Island offers, retire to your own private oasis, and enjoy your island stay.

A great place to stay on Rottnest Island!
Quick easy check in and out. Friendly, helpful staff. We arrived early and left on last ferry, reception held our bags so we could go off and enjoy the island. Room was spacious and comfortable. Water pressure in shower very good. Bed comfortable. Hotel located right on the beach. A great place to sit and have a few drinks as the sun goes down.

Not that bad afterall
Staff at hotel Rottnest bar restaurant were really warm and friendly. Service was impeccable and food were served in large portion and really delicious.
Some imperfections in the hotel but bearable. Selena was friendly and efficient.

Cecilia is the front staff who is as friendly as quokka. She’s the asset for the company and we have the best services/ greetings from her from the day we stepped in rottnest hotel.
