“Great place great location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2013

We stayed Saturday night with friends for my husbands birthday. From the moment we got there we were welcomed and shown to our rooms. Our room was comfortable and well furnished. There is a great sitting area on the verandah where we enjoyed a drink watching the passing parade of people walking past and an Internet station set up as well as a laptop in our room. The breakfast in the morning had a great selection of food to choose from. Thanks Barry for the stay we loved it.

Room Tip: Any room was good. Friends stayed in a room closer to street and were surprised there was minimal no...

I travel to Freo two or three times a year and staying here makes the trip something to look forward to. There is accomodation for a variety of budgets (you should consider your experience will vary accordingly) but given that the suites are cheaper than a small room at 'that classy place down the road' and include internet, breakfast and limited free parking it is a no brainer to stay here. The place is independently owned so adjustments need to be made to expectations like expecting 24 hour checkin/service. It really isn't that hard an adjustment. The small staff work tirelessly and even when you can tell they have had a hard day there's always a smile and kind greeting. Location is a very short walk to all there is in Freo, but just far enough away to escape the noise and yobbo's of the pubs.
I don't know how they manage to keep up the standard. I highly recommend checking it out.

Room Tip: Review the photo's on the booking page thoroughly. All rooms are vastly different. If availabl...

We stayed here for three weeks as our son was in hospital and I can't thank Barry and Christina enough for all their help and genuine concern. Nothing was too much trouble for them. Christina was an absolute delight and assisted me in every way possible and Barry was also friendly and obliging.The dynamic duo. Nothing was too much trouble for them. The rooms we found to be extremely comfortable and clean. Considering the circumstances we found ourselves in this B & B made the situation a lot easier to cope with. Thankyou so much. We would recommend it to everyone, you won't be disappointed.

The lady with the curls at the reception was not friendly during our 2 nights stay at the place. When we had our breakfast, we brought our plates to the kitchen sink , she was there and she didn't even show her appreciation. Most B&B we stayed in, the host were all friendly and make us felt comfortable but not for Terrace Central.Maybe they were running full and the staffs were overwork, But i believed a smile will be nice in the morning. She seems like she just woke up from the bed looking all grumpy. Room was not all clean,floor mat and face towel were not replaced after the 1st housekeeping. Oh Ya, pls replace the bell at the main door! We waited and called but no one open the door for us!

Room Tip: choose the apartment and not the rooms

The room we were given is a normal Queen ensuite, where the room number is numeric. After looking at the other reviews, we realized that the good comments are referring to the executive rooms (where the room numbers are alpha-numeric, eg. 35A, 33B). The location of the hotel is centrally located and convenient to go to the town and the port by foot, there is a bus stop just outside the hotel. We would say this might be just the plus point for this place. Apart from this, the experience staying in this place is disappointing.
1. The general place (eg. common walking area) doesnt seem well-kept, some areas were dusty and the carpet is dirty. Service-wise: No comments. We didnt feel welcome to the place at all, as the lady who showed us to our room seemed to be in a rush and uninterested.
2. Room
a. The wastebin in our toilet was not cleared from the previous guest and even throughout our stay. The other wastebin in the room were not cleared throughout our stay as well.
b. The headrest of the queen bed was dusty and broken, where it was dangerous to lean on it.
c. The aircon made crackling sound throughout the night, which was disturbing to the sleep.
3. The breakfast was not appetizing. We found several expired yogurt in the fridge, which made us wonder how safe are the other food in the pantry.
We will definitely not choose this place again, even it is in a convenient location.

As owner/manager I am sorry that your stay was a disappointment however listed below my response.
This guest was not "given" room 10 they selected and booked it online as it was the budget room [lowest price] certainly we have superior rooms and suites at a higher rate.
All rooms are accurately described on line and have four poto's.
1. The guest had selected "late arrival" with the key in the locked box. they then arrived un-announced and rang the night bell, one of my staff happened to be available to let them in and as she was on her time may have been rushed.
Regarding the "common walking area" this is cleaned and vacuumed daily and the carpets are not in need of cleaning.
2. a. The waist bin not being emptied is not acceptable and my cleaning staff have been reprimanded.
b. the bedhead on the decorative art deco bed is not a headrest the centre blanket box is free standing and not designed as a headrest. it certainly is not broken.
c. The reverse cycle air-conditioning is new, and as with all units it cycles on and off.
3. Breakfast. my sincere apology if there was an expired yogurt. The complimentary Continental breakfast consists of... choice of 5 serials, 4 types of bread, crumpets, muffins, stewed apricots and peaches, dried prunes and dates, apple and orange juice, brewed coffee, 6varieties of tea.
In my opinion this is a very comprehensive and appetizing "continental breakfast"

I regularly visit Perth & stay in all sorts of hotels. After recently spending 2 nights at Terrace Central Hotel with my daughter, I will definitely be staying here on future trips.
It is very well appointed, extremely clean & has loads of character. The little extras and attention to detail make it feel extremely homely and comfortable. We had room 35 A, complete with iPod dock, laptop, great comfy couch, huge TV & lovely private outdoor sitting area.
We didn't need to use the car all weekend, as we could walk to everything - Freo markets, shops & the wharf & seafood restaurants.
All in all Tce Central managed to capture all the modern mod-cons & amenities whilst maintaining the Freo character.

Room Tip: We loved 35A. It is set back behind the main building, so away from traffic of South Tce & quiet...

I have stayed here a couple of time now, the staff have been great, helpful and friendly to deal with. The rooms are comfortable and clean. Close enough to walk through most of Fremantle, and into the centre of the town. Very convenient location with parking available. Love the character of the place.
