Stayed here at end of month trip in Australia. Reception staff friendly and check in good. Room more than adequate for our needs. Shower was ok over bath but water did not drain away quickly so you were left paddling in water. Mentioned at reception who told us it would be looked at. 4 days there and nothing changed. Breakfast...

We arrived close to midnight from a flight from Hong Kong. The welcome was warm and friendly, and laid back. This hotel has huge rooms, bathrooms and balconies. Freemantle is easy to walk around, and a short walk across the gardens and you are at the beaches, and boardwalks for an extensive choice of seafood restaurants. The beach isn't much,...

What a great location. Walking distance (short) to the Freo markets, Freo restaurant strip, a beautiful park and best of all - Little Creatures Boutique Brewery (don't miss it!). Another thing not too miss - eating at Cicerellos in the Freo fishing boat harbour (or any of the other great restaurants). A short stroll away from here - and nothing...

Our stay over two nights was better than our expectations. The Reception was smooth, accommodation, and breakfast excellent. The hotel was well suited to cover the three functions which we attended.. A Meet & Greet, Installation of a new District Grand Master and a Grand Banquet, all in the Esplanade Hotel. Jean & Peter Stokes.

The hotel is in a prime location on Marine Terrace. The restaurants and attractions of Fremantle are within easy walking distance. The rooms are clean and well appointed. My room had a balcony which is ideal for reading the paper on a warm Fremantle afternoon. My only criticism was that the shower managed to leak water onto the bathroom floor...

Located quite close to a Park and also near Public Transport, this hotel has been 'around' for quite some time. It is a Landmark in the Fremantle area & must be 'stayed at' at least once during your lifetime. Plenty of things to do for both Mum & dad & the kids, enjoy this Hotel.
