Esplanade Hotel is always good for a stay over in Fremantle. Centrally located for sightseeing and access to markets, museums etc. Hotel parking for a fee. Comfortable, clean rooms and bathrooms. Didn't have meals on this occasion, but have on past visits.

We stayed in the room directly above the entrance, massive balcony. Attended the restaurant for a Birthday Party with friends. The balcony was the perfect place to meet up for post dinner drinks. Great to sit back and watch the Freo nightlife. The room, although large, was a little disappointing. I realise it is a heritage building, and the structure...

Hotel looks to have been recently renovated (past few years) and has been maintained well since. The room was very spacious, and the bathroom was massive (including spa corner bath).

The breakfast is good, the room is big, perfect for travelling with my elderly mum. The hotel overall is nice but a bit tired and dated. The most annoying thing is the lack of 'free wifi' in the room as advertised. There is no option to connect in my room on the 3rd floor, and when I advised reception the...

We visited the hotel for a 1 night getaway and it was lovely. Room was great, clean and seemed fresh. Nice and close to the ocean, train, main city centre which was great. We used valet for our car which was great, we didn't eat there but went out and explored the local cuisine. Overall I would happily return.
