Sayed at fothergills for 1 night this weekend and I was very impressed. My room the endeavour was lovely with its own private balcony overlooking the beautiful and very interesting back garden. The breakfast was fabulous with lots of choices. This really is a very nice place to stay and I now wouldn't stay anywhere else when visiting Fremantle. David... More

We stayed at Fothergills for 3 nights as a base to see Fremantle and Rottnest Island and it was a highlight of the trip. Based in a pair of nineteenth century houses, furnished with antiques and an amazing collection of artworks, this is a wonderfully comfortable place to stay. The welcome from the proprietor was first class and the service... More

Fothergills of Fremantle was elegant, easy walking distance to everything, delicious breakfast included . The room was quiet & the house a museum in itself. So beautifully decorated & steeped in history. A wonderful place to feel the real charm of Fremantle.

My second stay at Fothergills B&B allowed me more time to enjoy their breakfast and tour the grounds and building to enjoy the multitude of art works. This place is just a delight and if you enjoy art especially sculpture you could visit lovely Fremantle just to stay at Fothergills. Thoughtfully appointed and roomy rooms decorated in Victorian/Federation style. Staff... More

We stayed in the Endeavour room for 1 night and thoroughly enjoyed the ambience of being surrounded by antiques and artwork. Found the location very practical for short walks into the café strip, but far enough away to be relaxing and quiet. The great thing we found about this bed and breakfast is we couldn't tell how many other guests... More

We stayed there for 2 nights. The owners were extremely helpful! He even drove us to the ferry for Rottnest Island as we were late. One room was fantastic, with a good sized bathroom and an external veranda. The other one was unfortunately smaller and with an even smaller ensuite. But all very charming and well maintained. Breakfast was excellent... More

we stayed here for 2 nights. There is access to a large balcony on the 2nd storey where you can relax with a glass of wine and watch the sun go down over the ocean (and shipyards). It's a convenient 10 minute walk downhill to the main drag. The owner was very kind and generous, offering tips for going out... More

The property is amazing and always maintained so well and is in a superb location, there is always so much new artwork and furniture to see and so much fascinating history around you. The rooms we have stayed in are all so nice and... More

Great atmosphere, rooms, breakfast and hospitality. This is a beautiful house, decorated appropriately and with imagination. Walk down by the old and iconic penitentiary and the old market to the bars, bistros, shops and local beers of old Fremantle. It could hardly be better placed for convenience, views and walks.

I've been fortunate enough to stay twice at Fothergills when I've been working for The Literature Centre. It's a gorgeous property, with fascinating pictures and art everywhere you look. I love the Samson room in particular - private and luxurious and with a view of the sea from the beautiful balcony. The breakfasts are yummy, it's extremely clean, and I... More
