Fodor's Expert Review Pinctada McAlpine House

55 Herbert St.

With an inviting pool, a library, personalized service, and heaps of Javanese teak furniture, this B&B, originally built in 1910 for a local pearling master, is a good place to unwind while giving you a chance to swap travel tales with your fellow guests at breakfast. This longtime home of Lord Alistair McAlpine, the man famous for restoring historical buildings throughout Broome and Cable Beach, is now owned by a member of the successful Paspaley pearl family, and is best described as a luxury boutique B&B.
