Arrived very late in the small hours of a Saturday morning, owing to airline disruptions. My GHA Discovery status has been recognised with both a double-upgrade to an Executive King Room, and a very thoughtful welcome gift. The room was right up to the best Rydges standards, evidently quite recently refreshed. A special call-out to Guest Service Manager Travis Clement,...

Initially just a one night do not disturb stay, but added Sunday after a half price offer. Buffet breakfast included in the Atrium which was brilliant. Spa and Pool were great, nice gym facilities. Room service breakfast so filling, worth the money you pay! Highly recommended.

A very friendly hotel walking distance to everything in Fremantle. Rooms clean and well appointed. A little TLC needed around some common areas like pool area. Reception and restaurant areas clean bright and roomy. Would recommend this charming hotel

The exterior is a lovely period hotel in the heart of Freemantle, well located for easy exploring the city and close to parks and ocean front. The lobby is impressive and service was very good.

The hotel is located near the shops but far enough from the hustle-bustle of the shopping area. There are a couple of fashion boutiques to the left of the hotel and if you are after a fairly expensive souvenir, the Kailis for pearl jewelry. The weekend Fremantle markets is also close by. It is walking distance to the Maritime Museum...

We have stayed here before and probably had a better experience.
