My husband and I arrived exhausted in Fremantle after a 26 hour grueling journey from California. We were greeted by the gracious, charming owner, an Englishman, like us, and welcomed into his beautiful Victorian B&B as if we were family. The house is adorned with wondrous works of art and furnished with fabulous antiques. Our room was The English room... More

Wife and I arrived pm Friday and left early Monday morning for our flight. The room was clean and comfortable, up a short flight of stairs. The balcony at the end of the hall had views over the outer harbour and Fremantle central. The breakfasts cost $10 each but were well worth the money and the staff cooked each breakfast... More

Exceptionally great little place, just a stroll from the city center and the harbour (do not miss Little Creatures). Very friendly and helpful staff. Different interior in every room - interesting and cozy :) Love the cows! Will absolutely be our first choice when in Freo next time.

We stayed at Fothergills in April and were absolutely delighted with everything. We stayed in the English room and had the whole house to ourselves. There is so much to look at in the house - from the magnificent art to the beautiful furniture, and of course the view over Fremantle from the balcony - best enjoyed with a glass... More

Having never visited Fremantle before, our experience was made less than 'wonderful' by the 'grumpy' manager. We got lost getting there, due to our GPS not understanding the many no right turns, and then sending us in totally the wrong direction. I rang the manager and told her we were running late. When we finally found the place, we parked... More

We stayed as a party of 8 across three rooms at the start of February. This is a fantastic place. The rooms are spacious and well maintained, but the best bit is the extra space that you can use downstairs and outside in the courtyard. It really is a home-from-home experience - plus, of course, the luxury of a cooked... More

My husband I stayed at Fothergills in the English room with the four poster bed for our wedding anniversary. Having recently travelled to the UK we decided to try a B&B to see how our home city compared with England. We were not disappointed. The room is spacious and decorated with period furniture. The best part was that we had... More

Had Sampson room. Very nicely appointed. You felt like you were living in past era. Furniture was of great quality but had antique feel. Perhaps it was all antiques. Bathroom amenities great. Overlooks a busy road, but by night it quietens down a lot and really road noise not an issue. Great breakfast area and selection was very good.

Fothergills is a most exceptional guest house / B&B. The rooms are an absolute pleasure, the breakfast is as good or better than any 5 star, the breakfast room and rear courtyard are a pleasure. Staff are efficient and friendly, ensuring an excellent stay. This visit was my first stay here, and the beginning I hope of many more.

I visited Fremantle for a very important interview and was only stayed one night. On previous visits to Fremantle I stayed in The Esplanade (one of the most prominent hotels in Fremantle) but wanted to try a personable B&B this time. Even during the booking stages (which is drawn out as you have to email - there is no online... More

Thank you for sharing your experience and we are happy you appreciated the positive points about the houses. However after reading your comments we will clearly have to lift our game notwithstanding the fact that the preceding dozen reviews include praise heaped upon the very same person you felt was so dreadful. I think it only fair that other readers... More
