        Few mins walk to Fremantle weekend market and Fishing Boat Harbour. Free Blue Cat bus-stop is just opposite hotel. This bus goes to B-shed for ferry to Rottness Island. Otherwise it is a comfy 10 mins walk to B-Shed. Same bus to reach Coles for food supplies. The room is spacious (accessible room is less spacious due to the huge bathroom) with all basic amenities. All bathroom supplies are provided (except toothbrush).

        We stayed here at the end of a road trip around SW Australia, and really enjoyed our stay. The location cannot be beat - walking distance to just about everything in Fremantle, including the ferry to Rottnest Island. (The concierge was helpful in planning that trip.) Also rode the train into Perth to run an errand, and it was very easy. Loads of great restaurants nearby, including "cappuccino row". Also a 3-screen movie theater just around the corner. One down side is that the pool is quite small, which was OK for our visit as it was a bit rainy and chilly. The staff were wonderful. There was a coin laundry machine across from our room. Bed was very comfortable.

        Fantastic Location, Great Staff”

        We spent 3 nights at the Esplanade Hotel Fremantle, and were so happy that we could walk to just about everything, including the train station for places that were a bit further out. The hotel itself shows its age, but the rooms are nicely appointed. The bed was a little soft for me, but I did appreciate a wide variety of pillows to choose from. The pool is very small, which didn’t really matter because the weather was quite chilly. The concierge was always helpful, and they have loads of great advice for things to do and see. One frustration was that everything had a price, was an add-on: breakfast, bottles of water were 2-for-$6 AUD, quite expensive. They have a nice program where you earn $20 for every day you don’t have your towels or sheets changed. So we splurged for the buffet breakfast, and discovered espresso/cappuccino was an additional $4.50! (The instant coffee in the room was quite bad, but there are lots of cafes within walking distance.) The buffet was just OK - big enough, but the food wasn’t anything special. All in all, prices are high in Western Australia, and this location makes it a good deal. We would stay here again.

        Best part is that the hotel is clean, well maintained and great location. It is just across esplanade park where you can reach Little Creatures and the Fish and Chips restaurants at the fishing harbour with a short walk. Free CAT bus service bus stop is just diagonally across tge road, making it really eaay to travel around in Fremantle. we didnt need a car even though we were travelling with a 22 months old and 4 year old boys and 2 elderly.

        Nice Hotel but. I stay on almost 100 Hotels a year, this is the only place where I have to pay for a simpel bottle of water. The musik, if you can call it music in the breakfast restaurant is terrible, and too loud. The spa room is weary nosy you can hear when the spa is on next door. Very Loud. Bring you water, take breakfast outside, and avoid spa room then it is a fantastic Hotel.

        Central location and good for a short visit”

        I enjoyed staying in the heart of Fremantle since we weren't hiring a car as we were only in Perth for 4 days... Restaurants and sights are all nearby. Staff were happy to take care of our luggage before check-in and I think we were upgraded to a pool-facing room with a balcony... Our only complaints would be that housekeeping didn't clean our rooms before our last night there and the fire alarm went off at midnight when we were sound asleep. Reception desk said it was a false alarm when we went downstairs. Otherwise, the reception staff are very nice and friendly during the duration of our stay.

        Parking”

        On hotel only has valet parking at $35 / day. Street parking is expensive. There is a Wilsons covered car park nearby. Gets locked at 2200 (?) and opens again at 0600 (?) - i.e. you cannot access the car overnight if you need to. However, the biggest drawback with the Wilsons car park is the overly complicated charging rates which vary and you have to pre-calculate what you need to buy. There is a deal for $25 per day but only on weekdays..... Its way too complicated. My recommendation would be the nearby public (open) car park next to the skate board park. $11 per day. Yes it is unsecured but hotel staff use it regularly and it is not known for break-ins so probably a safe bet. Watch out on the pricing - charges run from 0800 to 0100 the following day. So if you park up at say 2200 and pay $11 thinking it will take you to 2200 the next day, you would be mistaken! It will take you until 0100 and then at 0800 you have to go back and put another ticket in the window. Poor gym

        Great location in historic Fremantle”

        Would recommend this hotel for business or leisure. Its an excellent conversion of a historic property and facilities are fine and consistent with what you would expect for the price. Only gripes were you had to pay for on street parking (or pay for the hotel's valet parking) and that water pressure wasn't great. In a room with a spa bath, waiting for the bath to fill took ages.
