Freeman on Ford B&B
Ranked #2 of 14 Beechworth B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed November 13, 2012

We were travelling to Melbourne and stayed in Beechworth over night. Heidi and Jim welcomed us even though we had not made a booking. Jim kindly helped with our luggage, I had a heavy suitcase, and we were shown to our beautiful room. Heidi and Jim ensured we had glasses for our wine on the terrace and even brought out cheese and biscuits and nuts to enjoy. They couldn't have been more hospitable and we felt very much at home.
I would thoroughly recommend Freeman on Ford and in fact are organising another night to stay there with friends.
I left my beloved boots behind and after a quick phone call they were delivered by post next day.

Jim and Heidi have excelled in their renovations of Freeman on Ford. It is definitely 5 star in both facilities and service. We recommend this experience for anyone wanting to completely relax and enjoy good food.

Room Tip: We stayed in the marble room and it didn't disappoint.

Freeman on Ford provided us with the perfect luxury get away with Heidi and Jim being the perfect hosts.
From the minute we arrived and shown to our rooms, to when we sat down with a glass of bubbles in front of the beautiful pool with the sun shining, we could not have asked for better.
The rooms were beautifully restored, luxury linen and appointments, and attention to detail at every turn did not disappoint us.

We were so impressed we have already booked a few days retreat in January for a birthday celebration.

Room Tip: The white room was beautiful, peaceful and serene.

We spent the weekend of our wedding at Freeman on Ford and we were looked after so incredibly by Heidi and Jim. The whole booking process was a breeze, the property is sensational and our room was immaculate. I could not have hoped for a better experience and I'm delighted that Freeman on Ford will be a part of our wedding memories for ever. Thanks again!

We arrived at Freeman at Ford as customers and left as friends! I seriously had a tear in my eyes when we walked into our room and I'm not easily impressed!..lol....We had the deluxe room that overlooks the pool and we have never stayed in such a magnificent place. So many times things look better in pics and online, this place is everything it looks online and more....We did not lift a finger, the room was refreshed, every whim was catered to, our restaurants booked, tour arranged and reorganized for us time wise, nothing was too much trouble. The breakfast Jim whips up is to die for and Heidi's (secret recipe) cheesecake is divine come afternoon tea time around he pool. Couple all that with magnificent Beechworth at your doorstop, fabulous shopping, more chef's hats per capita than any city and you will have an unforgettable stay. It would be very possible to have a private stay there, as Jim and Heidi are extremely respectful of your space - but who would miss out on a chat around their huge kitchen over a champagne with that kind of warmth and hospitality!?! We will most certainly return. On a footnote, Jim was still checking in with us hours after we left as we had a car problem, everything about the weekend was flawless and we cant say enough good things. Just book it!!! Kerry and Michael

Room Tip: We chose the big deluxe room that heads out to the pool, magnificent! There are 2 like it, there is...

We recently spent a weekend at Heidi and Jim's Freeman on Ford and came away very impressed. They were so helpful with every thing, friendly, hospitable and made us completely at ease. The deluxe room was excellent and we want to say, thank you.

Our weekend at Freeman on Ford was like staying at an old friend's house. Heidi greeted us at the front door by name with a lovely warm smile and it was the first time we'd met! Her husband Jim met us not long after with tea and cheescake - the perfect way to settle in. We were blown away by the beauty of the rooms and the attention to detail both Heidi and Jim had payed to the furnishings etc. We really did feel like we stepped in to a Victorian paradise. My wife and I, as it was our anniversary, decided to splash out on one of the luxury suites and were not dissapointed. With a beautiful view over the pool and a private verandah, it really was a treat. Beechworth is a beautiful enough town but staying at Freeman on Ford enhanced our experience ten fold! Hats off to Heidi and Jim for their unrivaled customer service; they really are the perfect hosts. We will definitely be staying with them again.
