Freeman on Ford B&B
Ranked #2 of 14 Beechworth B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed October 7, 2012

We stayed with Heide & Jim on the weekend and their friendliness & hospitality is second to none. From the moment we arrived (and we arrived 1hr earlier than check in) they looked after us completely. Nothing was too much trouble for them & the food was very good. Apart from being helpful in every way their 'after sales service' was exceptional after we discovered that we had left an item in the room by mistake, Heide offered to post it to us. Just a superb time!

We recently celebrated my birthday at the beautifully restored Freeman on Ford in the historic precinct of Beechworth. We stayed in "our room" - so named as we have stayed with Heidi & Jim on previous occasions with friends and family. The accommodation is stunning and "our room" overlooks a lovely verandah and an immaculate garden/pool/spa area. Heidi and Jim are the ultimate hosts - helpful, genuine, wonderful people who spoil their guests and provide the ultimate luxury getaway. If you want gorgeous surrounds, the best freshly prepared breakfasts and afternoon teas, look no further.

Room Tip: All of the rooms are beautifully appointed - If you get the chance view the rooms and select your fa...

Dear Sandy and Chris, I am overwhelmed with your constant support and you must have been back at least 7 times and you have also bought gift vouchers for in laws and you have referred many people to us and we really appreciate what genuine people you both are. I know you work very hard in your professions and it is my pleasure to be able to help you "chill out " and thank you also for recommending Tanya to stay with us also. Look forward to catching up again. xx Heidi

With spacious rooms, great breakfast and delightful hosts, you could not deny an enjoyable stay.

Heidi's recommendations on restaurants and surrounds was perfect.

Right in the center of town and surrounded by great restaurants, this is truly a great place to stay.

Jim was very helpful & was kind enough to share some the goods from his confectionary business. Very personal touch!

Room Tip: At the back with private covered deck overlooking pool, wow!

My wife and I spent a long weekend in Beechworth and at Freeman on Ford several weeks ago and had a wonderful experience. Jim and Heidi (and Jackie I think) were very friendly, always helpful and interesting to chat with. The room we stayed in was lovely and truly a luxury experience. Jim was helpful with providing advice about some interesting places to go in the Beechworth area and we appreciated both Heidi and Jim showing us through the building and explaining the renovations that have been made. The pride they take in what they have achieved is obvious (and justified). It was lovely to have afternoon teas and cooked breakfasts provided, to not be rushed and just relax. We didn't have near enough time to see all that there is to see in the Beechworth area and are looking to go back for another stay when we get the opportunity. We can recommend staying at Freeman on Ford in Beechworth for an enjoyable, relaxing, luxury experience, being looked after by some really nice people.

We were truly treated like family when staying overnight at Freeman on Ford. Upon exploring the stunningly and meticulously renovated front rooms, we where shocked to witness just how much more there was to this property like no other. A truly 5 star experience with unmatched service and attention to detail rivaled by none. See you again soon Freeman!

We were lucky enough to be able to celebrate our wedding anniversary in Beechworth with 42 members of our family and friends. 7 couples stayed at Freeman on Ford B&B and we can truly say we have only received positive feed back from our friends. The hospitality and friendliness is lovely. We have stayed there once before and had no hesitation recommending it to our friends. The rest of our family and guest were spread around this lovely little town and a great time was had by all.

Room Tip: 2 large rooms on the ground floor are especially beautifull with wievs of the swimming pool.

Freeman on Ford is a stunning and luxurious Bed and Breakfast in historic Beachworth.
We wanted somewhere extra special to spend our 30th wedding anniversary. This 5 star accommodation exceeded our expectations. We loved everything about it! It has a special kind of ambiance that made us feel completely relaxed. We wished we could stay much longer and cant remember the last time we felt so looked after. Or should I say spoilt but our gracious and attentive hosts, Heidi and Jim!
We are recommending it to all of our friends.

Julie and Paul :)
