Very disappointed

This was our first stay in a hotel since my husband became disabled 5 five months ago. While the room was 'accessible' the room was terribly positioned in that we had a view of a tin shed with a generator ... more

In desperate need of an upgrade

I have stayed at The Esplanade before in the 1990's. I remember paying $185 for a room in the main hotel. This time I stayed in the side wing and paid $395. The room was dated like I was staying ... more

I had high expectations as we've driven and walked past The Esplanade Hotel a dozen times and wondered at the accommodation. The booking process was complicated by the competing on-line/membership/group booking arrangements but I finally settled on the Priority Guest ... more

Brilliant. Staff were so helpful and accommodating which made the stay a much better experience.

Staff in all areas (reception, valet parking, bar staff) could not be faulted. Exceptional service and nothing was ever too much trouble. Beautiful clean room and bed was amazingly comfortable.

Very noisy and quite honestly disappointing.

After booking in with the lovely girl at the counter, things went down hill. We had booked in to do the MS Ocean Ride, so an early morning was in store. I didn't realise how early. Room 177 should be ... more

Our stay was perfect for what we had planned over the weekend.

Room was clean, staff were friendly and helpful. We booked the room as part of deal associated with the MS Ocean Ride I participated in on Sunday. The MS website said the rooms were discounted to $205.00 for a superior ... more

Lovely staff but room not overly comfortable for price.

After staying numerous times at Kalgoorlie Rydges, the feeling after staying at Fremantle was slightly less satisfactory. The pillows were very uncomfortable and the bathroom was not as luxurious as Kalgoorlie. The staff were exceptional however and very friendly.

An enjoyable conference experience

Thanks for the early check in and the valet parking. Easy to access location and enjoyed a walk around Fremantle at night finding a restaurant and before breakfast.

A very happy stay thank you

Sorry I don't know the name of the excellent lady giving information at the valet parking desk. I travel extensively and have rarely met anyone who was more informative, practical and patient. Some of the waiters in the bar area ... more

Walking into the hotel the presentation was excellent.

The overall presentation of the hotel and room were quite good. However, the safe in my room did not work, also the switch on the bathroom side of the bed, for the overhead reading light above the bed, did not ... more
