When researching where to stay, we were very impressed with the photos of this hotel and the extensive renovations that had been carried out since we were last in Fremantle. The exterior certainly has kerb appeal and the reception area looks impressive, although only a token attempt had been made with the Christmas tree. A lot of effort had also...

Great location as a base to explore Fremantle. Staff were professional and courteous. Our room was clean, modern, well appointed with a pretty balcony. The only issue we experienced was a chaotic valet parking system. There were cars completely blocking the entrance to the hotel so no-one could drive through for drop off or pickups. When we returned to collect...

Functions and events team are rude and not trained. Would not host an event there. Food average and staff are very authorotative. Accomodation very average but yet the cost is very high. Not a pleasant experience.

We had a pleasant 2 night stay in Freemantle and found the Esplande Hotel very convienent to the main eating areas as well as the Dock side fro a trip to Rottnest. Room was spacious and clean. Free wifi is great but found it difficult to use, maybe just me.

The Esplanade is a great conference venue. The food is very good and the conference rooms are well set up. Some of the accomodation does need a GPS to find them as they are a long way from reception and views of a car park are less than desirable. The rooms, however, are very clean and well appointed and the...

The hotel impresses from the moment you drive up. Great location, clean comfortable rooms and friendly staff. Conference facilities were great and the food was excellent. Would love to bring the family next time.

I stayed here for two nights for a conference. Their priority rewards program is free to join and offers 20% off food as well as other specials. My late check out was automatic as I was a member. Staff were friendly. Only comment is that the keys to the lift and room stop working if you have them near your...

We arrived here mid afternoon. I have stayed here before however we havent stayed here as a couple before. It was an absolute assault to the senses to walk inside and have live music so loud you couldn't even be heard at the check in desk. Our comments about how long will this be lasting and I hope we haven't...

This is the second time that we have stayed at this hotel, albeit many years apart. It has great architecture in fitting with the city while the inside is quite modern. It was rather busy when we stayed but the room we had was pretty quiet. I was a little concerned when we first got to the room as it...

Stayed prior to a cruise for 2 nights. We were in the newer section and the room was fine and the bed good none of the problems that others have noted. The location of the Hotel is its biggest selling point right in the middle of Fremantle eateries and attractions. We eat in the buffet restaurant on one night. The...

Thank you for your review. We certainly do have a prime location for exploring Fremantle, being positioned opposite the Esplanade Park, and just a short walk from the Fisherman's Wharf and Cappuccino Street. Thank you for your feedback regarding the buffet restaurant. Your comments have been brought to the attention of the restaurant manager and chef. Hopefully we will see...
