Rooms are available to suit all tastes except for those craving modern boutique accommodation. Fothergills retains a vintage charm and feels less like a B&B than a town house. The Artwork was interesting. In the Samson room we felt that we had the run of the place what with the outside balcony and our own adjacent library. The ensuite was... More

We spent only one night here but would have liked to stay a bit longer. We were in Samson room, which is upstairs on the balcony at the front with views over Fremantle and out to sea. Arrived just in time for sunset. The room had a real period feel, but was very comfortable. The breakfast spread was really impressive.... More

MY husband and I spent one night prior to a Feb. cruise. Thoroughly enjoyed this unique Band B. Both the 2nd storey front covered porch and the wonderful outdoor patio with its huge super-comfortable sofa made this a perfect place to relax. It is within walking distance of downtown Fremantle, even for this couple in their 70s. Suzy, the manager,... More

I stayed one night in the English room. I will definitely return. The service was fantastic, the room was great, and the breakfast was tasty. I look forward to my next trip to Fremantle so I can stay again.

We were recommended this place by a close friend so our expectations were naturally high. From the moment we made our booking over the phone to when we left, we found ourselves trying to 'make it ok' with the manager. We own and operate accommodation ourselves, and we both felt like we were dealing with a difficult guest who we... More

To base your decision on the last review is to potentially miss out on experiencing the hospitality, creativity and diversity that a stay in Fremantle offers. We are from the Peel region in W.A. and have stayed at Fothergill's 3 times now and each visit has been enjoyable and memorable. During our recent visit we stayed in the Endeavour Room... More

We planned a night in Fremantle and wanted a more intimate individualistic experience. Fothergills seemed the perfect choice. First impressions were not good. We were told to check in at 2pm which we did only to be left waiting outside in the sweltering heat as the reception door was locked and a note told us to ring a number for... More

Thank you for writing about Fothergills and, naturally, it is disappointing to have such a negative review but there is always something to learn. We have three adjacent houses and it is natural that the manager should enquire of your name to know in which house your had booked. The Endeavour Room has a balcony with table and chairs and...

This was the second stay for my partner, and first for me. We stayed ONE night at the Esplanade Hotel and checked out the next morning because it was atrocious! Staying at the Fothergills is a much better value, deal and you get a delicious breakfast. The rooms are typical of a bed & breakfast so don't expect a 5... More

A quiet and pretty b&b walking distance to freo central but far enough away from the madding crowds. well worth a stay. The brekkie is very good and the communal table allowed us to meet the other guests and discuss our adventures. the themed rooms are well appointed and comfortable. It is well worth a stay.
