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... More

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... More

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... More

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... More

Great location etc, clean rooms. Valet parking was good despite my loathing of paying for parking. To be fair i happened to ask alot of the concierges on this visit but it would have been better if they had more local knowledge beyond just looking up the net like i had before asking them. Also things took a little while... More

This is an excellent place to stay in Fremantle. The room is well sized with some rooms looking out over the garden and pool. A few blocks away are excellent places to have breakfast and good coffee. Everything is within easy walking distance and as well the Fremantle Cat Bus stops across the road.

The hotel is in a fantastic location, perfectly placed to explore everything on offer in beautiful Fremantle, from the restaurants, breweries, beach frontage areas, galleries and other places of touristy interest, to the extent of the town itself.

Nice hotel in ideal spot but way overpriced. Better options for a lot less in freo like Hougmount. Unfortunately for us freo was full and had no choice. If you're stuck with the same choice park across the road for $11 instead of the hotel rate of $29

We can confirm that the rates offered by The Esplanade hotel are competitive and are keeping within the industry standards for the area. With regards to the parking facilities, as with most city centre hotels, there is plenty of off street parking and Valet parking is available at a charge and at $29 it is competitive for secure parking.
