“Executive B+B = great.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2012

Booked a little late for conference accommodation which was to be held at the Esplande. For those considering it, most of my collegue who stayed on site were disappointed. Not so, the terrace central. Unfortunately based on my research, quality budget options in Fremantle are few and far between. Certainly value for money was excellent. Comfort, space, good internet, reasonably quiet and good location all met expectations. Room serviced every day even though it wasn't part of the main complex. Breakfast standard continental but perfect prior to facing a day filled with endless morning and afternoon teas. Recommended (even if this sounds a little good to be true)

The most charming, warm welcome when we arrived and all the information we needed was provided. Loved the fact we could park our hire car in the car park free of charge - WiFi was also free. We were physically taken to our room by the Manager and also given a key to the main building to access the Breakfast Room and the balcony with gorgeous couches and sofa chairs where one could read, share a drink with partner or friends or just soak in the atmoshere of South Terrace below. The minute our door was opened both my husband and myself fell in love with the ambience of the room. It was quirky yet very functional and decorated beautifully and this was only the lounge area. We stepped down to the bedroom off this and were in awe as it was built around the original 1888 Bakery and housed the ovens which have been turned into a great feature of "The BakeryRoom". There was also a kitchenette to the side of this and a step up to the bathroom which had piping hot water the minute you turned on the tap. Off the living room was a small terrace where you could sit and sip your coffee and relax with the daily paper. What blew us away the most was the cleanliness of the whole apartment and the breakfast room - they were spotless!!! We have stayed in 5 star in Australia and overseas and never have we had such pristine rooms. Terrace Central is one block from the beginning of the cafe strip and also a small strip of cafes and funky shops in the other direction. It took us 10 minutes to walk to Little Creatures Brewery so was extremely central to the buzz of Fremantle. Breakfast was a good choice of continental breakfast dishes and the staff were very friendly and helpful and constantly cleaning and topping up food items - great to have real sugar in a bowl and spreads in bowls or jars - not in packaging as most places serve. Our son lives in Perth so we are usually there once or twice a year and we will now never stay any where else but Terrace Central and I am in the throws of trying to organise a few of our friends from Echuca to join us for a week over there as the prices are very reasonable!!! A must visit place - perefect in every way!!

We stayed here for five nights and thoroughly enjoyed it. Our room was spacious, beautifully decorated, air conditioned, quiet and comfortable. The small fridge is topped up with a little jug of fresh milk each day which was a nice touch to accompany the tea and coffee that you could make yourself.
the bathroom was large and airy with a reasonably strong shower.
Although free wifi was provided, we couldnt get the signal from our downstairs room so made use of the wired in desktop on the first floor instead. there was also plenty of communal sitting areas upstairs that you could use which were within wifi range.
Breakfast was lovely - a range of specialty breads and muffins to toast, cereals, fruit and yoghurt.
the only downside we found was that housekeeping seem a bit lazy. they would top up the fresh milk in the fridge each day but not the teabags? they made the bed but didnt ever sweep the floors, and the shower stall and bathroom floor were never cleaned over the entire five night stay and the tiny complimentary soaps were not replaced once used. I would still recommend this place though as its lovely, comfortable and in a great location just a short walk into the main town.

Room Tip: If you want wifi to work in your room, ask for an upstairs room

Thank you so much for taking the time to review my property. I am happy that you enjoyed your stay, sorry about the housekeeping, we have a high turnover of cleaning staff, seems we just get them trained then they move on.

My husband had to have a medical procedure at Fremantle Hospital so we decided to spend two nights at Terrace Central. As well as its proximity to the hospital (my husband is unable to walk far without getting short of breath) we loved our comfy spacious room wth its quirky accessories, the staff were helpful and obliging and the free internet enabled me to keep family and friends informed. My favourite spot was the enclosed verandah overlooking the terrace (the dining area came a close second).

Great location, only a short walk away from the town.

Staff friendly and helpful.

There's limited parking on site, which saves money! Free internet available. And there was a payphone on site, which was handy.

Continental breakfast available, which was great - but there was more on offer then usual & more then filled us up in the morning.

We loved the quirky, charming antique furniture and overall look and feel of the place. There is a beautiful conservatory room to relax in. Our bedroom was cosy but comfortable, filled with Gaudi memrobilia... with lots of charm, only downside was that there was no bath, but that was fine for a couple of days.

Nice and clean - would definitely recommend.

A group of guys went to Fremantle for a Golf tour and stayed at this wonderful B&B directly acroos the road from Fremantle Hospital. We found the rooms were more than adequate... everything we needed... The Hotel is very conveniently located as it a walking distance to the centre of Fremantle .... Great when we didn't have to worry about driving when we went to all the Restrauants and pubs.
The owner was very obliging and always had a smile on his face... There is a bottle shop just around the corner if you don't want to go the hotels or Little Creatures Brewery...
Fantastic...

I went to Fremantle a few weeks ago for a business trip, I booked one of their executive suites in a very new penthouse, the room was a huge room, with a big tv, also with its own kitchen and big bathroom. I had a 3 days conference at the Esplanade hotel, and I used to walk there, super convenient. nice cafes and restarants down stairs. Very clean, free internet, the only problem is that during the weekend it was a bit noisy, but the hotel is located in the city centre. The owner of the place super friendly.

Room Tip: good advise is to check always hotel's websites before to book.
