Went to the federal hotel for a drink with friends at 9pm on a saturday night, because for many years, rosies has been a great lively pub with a good atmosphere for young and old. As we walked in, the place was dead. No one sitting outside, and 1 group of people inside, who left 5 minutes later. We went... More

We went for dinner as a group of 12 and sat in a separate room which had its own fireplace. Gorgeous old building which has had a renovation to brighten it up. It had friendly staff and the food was excellent. This doesn't attempt to be the same as the other pubs in Freo which we really liked. It has... More

Use to be Rosie O'Gradys Irish Bar and was taken over about a month ago and is now the Federal. Back to its old origin. A fresh coat of paint with carpets and fireplaces removed has given it a fresh look. I like the new look. Was very quiet on Sat night. Gone are pints and only glass and schooners... More

The front desk guy was okay. Not impressed with parking, was told to park in the big car park as it was the safest. Got there & couldn't fit the car in as the limit was 2.1m & we had a 4x4 with roof rack & surfboard. We had to park in the carpark behind metros freo, closed at 1am... More

Located the center of Fremantle, it is perfect for work and relaxing after. Food was well priced (by WA standards) and the staff were helpful, I'd stay there again without hesitation. plenty of shops nearby also.

We've stayed here before many years ago and I'm sure it wasn't as bad then. We were checked in by a disinterested and unhelpful guy who possibly was homophobic. When we asked about parking we were told to park in closest parking lot - which charges $2.20 an hour - more than $50 a day- when I asked for alternatives... More
