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.

We have stayed at Freeman on Ford twice now and have been delighted on both occasions. The attention to detail and little extras are second to none and the service and food are just wonderful. We felt so taken care of and left feeling refreshed. Definitely an experience worth having!

This is the B & B that sets the standard for all the others. The attention to detail is amazing and the service is wonderful. Heidi and Jim are great hosts and they make you feel very special from the moment you arrive. Freeman's is far more than accommodation It is an experience in classic living from a bygone era....
