My husband and I stayed at Ford House in the Cooks Retreat cottage on Saturday 22nd March. Such a tranquil place. The cottage was just beautiful, away from the main house and within walking distance into town. Our trip to Bridgetown was for the Black Dog Ride in support of Depression and Suicide Awareness. So we decided to go down... More

Fairies live and work their magic in and around this beautiful place. This was our first visit and it will not be the last. We will book for a longer stay and become immersed in the tranquil and serene environment. Thank you Jenny and Ken

This was our 2nd stay at Ford House. Checked in on a hot day but still quite comfortable and cool in the old Ford House. Understanding lady at reception upgraded our room from a single to a double bed as we weren't aware we had booked a single room. Rooms were comfortable & very clean with lovely views of the... More

Everything about Ford House shouted relaxation and great service. Trish went out of her way to make sure every aspect of our stay was enjoyable, even booking a restaurant for us and ensuring great service there. The room was comfortable, the aircon worked well and the bathroom and kitchenette facilities were more than adequate. Ford house is very close to... More

Probably the oldest building in Bridgetown, Ford House looks like a museum in every aspect. From family photos on the wall, 1980s travel books on the shelf, old-fashioned living room, and etc., this place reminds me of the past. The owner of the house is very senior, living just besides the House. The staff are senior-aged as well, quite fit... More

Rang to advise that we would be arriving around 8pm and was (fairly abruptly) told "love, that's my bed time". Did not appear to be any ventilation in our room without opening the sash windows, a fairly airless nights sleep, would not like to be there in the full heat of summer.

kenPerth, Owner at Ford House, responded to this review

This guest enquired what time would be the latest they could arrive and we advised "Not much after 8pm would be preferred as I retire early most evenings". (Most Hotel receptions close around 8pm unless a hotel in the CBD). This is a small business. The day begins at 6.30am, 7 days a week plus I have a husband in... More

We enjoyed a lovely stay at Ford House, Bridgetown. Very welcoming, beautiful room, a delicious breakfast and wonderful arts and crafts. Being met by the geese while walking to breakfast was an unexpected highlight. We will definitely be back!

It is impossible to convey the magic of Ford house in words! Even photos fail abysmally to convey the uniqueness and extraordinary abundance of the experience. Our return 2 night visit was as delightful as the first time around, in 2011. Ken and Jenny have created an idyllic 'community' experience which culminates in a generous old-style breakfast in the 200... More

Jim Thorpe Suite @ Ford House. How special this stay was that we felt like we had been given the keys to a best friends country manor house and told to make ourselves at home - which we did. From the comfy couches and bed to the best china and linen, it had it all. The English country garden was... More
