We stayed for two days over Easter.This hotel supports the Fremantle Street Arts Festival, so the place was pumping, with lots of performers staying here. Whilst the establishment is showing signs of its age, our suite was comfortable, with a great bed and hot shower. From the moment we arrived at the front door and booked in our car, to... More

So nice to read your review and how much you enjoyed the experience at the hotel and Fremantle over the festive weekend. The hotel product was showing signs of needing urgent TLC and we have been onto this since takeover early last year, the ground floor and exterior looks 100% better than when first arriving, the rooms are on the...

I spent 4 nights in april 2014 at this hotel. All in all it was an enjoyable stay. The rooms are large, clean, and well maintained. The staff is friendly and helpful. The location is very good. I needed a "real" 24 reception as I did not know when I would arrive - which this hotel has. Barely any traffic... More

Pleasing your stay was generally okay, the hotel has recently replaced the old machines that must have been 10 years plus old that were inherited with brand new units, I understand there are a few tweaks need to get these commissioned and should be up and running very soon. Sorry this caused you inconvenience during your stay. Regards David Bornmann More

What a disappointment - not your typical Rydges standard. We went out at 8.30am and returned at 2.30 for a nap to find our room hadn't been serviced. When we told reception they did chase it up. very tired we decided to sit in the lobby bar to kill some time, only to have to clear a table so we... More

With a title like that I was expecting to be disappointed that the reviewer has had a poor experience with the hotel. I apologise that you encountered these service issues, in way of explanation the room cleaning for guests already staying do generally occur after 2pm unless a special request due to cleaning vacant rooms for guests arriving at 2pm...

I was a member of an expedition team of 14 who stayed at the Esplanade before and after our sea voyage. Our rooms were fine. We had no difficulty with noise and everything was clean. The staff was courteous and helpful. The location is ideal, being close to seaside restaurants and the shopping strip. Like everything else we found in... More

Glad to hear you had a relaxing stay before your sea trip, the location is great for these types of activities and hopefully you were able to enjoy being near the cafe strip and the mariner areas. The costs are reviewed in the hotel regularly and we do try to keep them reasonable within the market. Appreciate you pointing this... More

So sorry to hear that we messed up your reservation on the special occasion, it certainly can be frustrating when these small items can occur in a professional business that make such a big impact to the guest! Will definitely share this with the front office team to ensure they realise the importance of checking bookings more thoroughly. The secure... More

This is a well positioned hotel, great spot. Had an early check in and the lady said we had a nice quiet room. Our troubles started when the people in the room next door started using their spa. Sounded like someone was drilling through the adjoining wall. Reception did not seem surprised. They rang the people and the noise stopped... More

Thank you for raising the issue with what is thought to be the spa jet noise from next door, will investigate this phenomenon with the housekeeping and maintenance team as this has not come to my attention before. Sorry to see you wont be back with us again. Regards David Bornmann More

I travel quite a bit for work and every time our team flys to Perth, the Esplanade is our choice of property to stay at.

This a large hotel in the centre of Fremantle - great location walking distance to almost everything. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The rooms are quite small but no smaller than a standard hotel room I guess. I would recommend to stay here mainly because of the great location.

Appreciate the review of the hotel and that you enjoyed the superior location we enjoy at the hotel. The rooms size do differ a little due to the age of the hotel and the number of additions it has had over the past 100 years, generally they are 25sqm plus, as per the AAA guidelines for a 4.5 star property....

Dasni @ front reception was excellent, providing a warm smile and nothing was too difficult. All staff were extremely friendly, very genuine and always happy to help. The hotel is perfectly positioned across from parklands,a large ferris wheel and eateries by the sea.
