Esplanade Hotel

Historic hotel in Port Hedland

One of the roughest pubs in Port Hedland in a former incarnation, the 'Nard' is now a reasonably characterful 4½-star hotel with 98 smart, well-equipped guest rooms (though they're petite and quite pricey). It's a favourite with business travellers, making the weekend rates considerably cheaper. It has good food and drink on-site.
