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.

Enjoyable stay, apart from the shower screen/door not sealed properly and, although we turned the shower head towards the wall, we seemed to flood the bathroom floor, twice. Stopped it before it went onto the carpet.

OK Experience, but hotel has no 'soul'

The room was comfortable albeit a bit dated. We were given a pool facing room which was a very nice experience. The mirrors at the back of the reception desk have 'mirror rot' and are turning black around the edges. ... more
