We couldn't have been happier with our delightful 5 day stay at Lord McAlpine House. We wanted a quiet, relaxed do nothing kind of holiday and it was perfect. Rinaldo was an excellent host and breakfast was perfect. It's not a resort style place, more like being in a soothing family home. Pool was great, loved it.

Ronaldo, Marilynne and Garry were superb hosts with great care and energy. Their hospitality and service was incredible. We valued their flexibility, recommendations and helpfulness. Nothing was ever a trouble. I appreciated all of their gestures including Ronaldo giving me a courtesy call approx 6 months prior to share local knowledge and trip advice, the hot breakfasts at the communal dining table and the fabulous recommendations to explore Broome. The accommodation had so much character and heritage. From the artwork, gardens, parrots and architecture - it was just a wonderful place to stay! I would highly recommend the Pinctada to anyone who wants a personal experience and near Broome town. The hosts went above and beyond to create an incredible experience, thank you!
