Since hearing about Freeman on Ford 5 years ago we have been wanting to stay there but at each opportunity they were booked out. No wonder!! This place IS the best B&B in Australia. The restoration of the building has been done without regard to cost - it is exceptional. Everything is perfect from the beds to the tap fittings.... More

From the moment we inquired about this property the hosts, Heidi and Jim, went out of their way to make our stay memorable. We stayed in one of the suites which was huge, had a gorgeous view over the pool area, and the attention to detail in all fixtures and fittings was outstanding. The marble bathroom was lovely and the... More

Decided to stay in country Victoria for our first wedding anniversary and had a lovely stay at Freeman on Ford. Had a luxurious room with all the trimmings and it was great. The food and service was top class. Definitely worth a return visit. Thanks Heidi and Jim Angela and Lou

We stayed on Saturday night and Jim and Heidi provided a gorgeous space, our room was warm and inviting and the bed was fantastic, it was hard to get up and leave in the morning. Due to timing we did not have breakfast - but I have been told that it is the best in town.

We had the most exceptional experience at Freeman on Ford. Our hosts Jim and Heidi were impeccable and provided a luxury service in the most beautiful surroundings, not just when we arrived but prior with prompt service and confirmations for spa treatments and lots of ideas of what to do and see. A personalised service which was discrete yet warm... More

I have stayed at Freeman on Ford twice in recent times and have to say I can't fault the accommodation or service generously provided by Heidi and Jim. I thought the best beds in the world were at Aria in Las Vegas but have to say Freemans on Ford tops those beds by a mile. My first trip was with... More

Freeman on Ford is unique. It bridges the gap between the personal welcome offered by a conventional bed and breakfast and the opulent luxury offered by a historical grand hotel. Our hosts, Heidi and Jim, were warm and gracious, and the impeccable restoration and renovation of their establishment is a credit to them. We stayed upstairs in the Bronze Victorian... More

Right from the first moment we were impressed. From our terrific, welcoming host through to the lovely, well apointed rooms; our stay was everything we could have hoped for. We stayed in the Victorian Blue room, which is warm, quiet and fills with the morning sun. Every inch of this historic building is wonderfully decorated and the excellent service gives... More

Simply a perfect place to stay. Relaxing, luxurious beds and decor. Breakfast was a standout. Simply perfect! Will be back again and highly recommend for a weekend away or for business. Set in the heart of Beechworth just a short stroll from shops and restaurants.

I recently stayed for three nights in this magnificent, heritage listed Freeman on Ford. The rear 1920's inspired suite was very luxurious and the breakfast was divine. Thankyou Heidi and Jim for your generous hospitality and for introducing us to the many wonders of Beechworth.
