Esplanade Hotel Fremantle - by Rydges4.5 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
The Esplanade is located in the old downtown area of Freemantle, excellent for dining and sightseeing which is all in walking distance. If you arrive by car plan on an extra $30 for valet parking since you can't park in the street. It's a large hotel catering to groups and even conferences. The noise level was high at times. Breakfast was OK and the staff was very friendly. What annoyed me a bit was the upselling at every corner: recommended room upgrades ("otherwise you'll be looking at a brick wall"), a club membership of sorts to get a breakfast discount, followed by extra offerings of "barista coffees" at a premium in the breakfast area... I recommend to plan ahead as you are in the middle of dozens of small restaurants and may not want to commit to breakfast at the hotel ahead of time. Apart from that I quite enjoyed my stay which was for business.
Seldom have I experienced such luxury in a place called Perth
This was an excellent hotel! Very central and convenient location. Great amenities and the staff was friendly and helpful! Would come back again!
Lovely lovely location and what more could you ask for? Great location and decent basics.
We asked for the room to be ready early because we had traveled over 30 hours to get there. It wasn't!
