We chose the Esplanade because of the location and views of a friend. We had no problems at reception but we did see a group arrive and their reception process was slow due to only one person at the desk. We also noticed other occasions when the single desk person was under pressure to cope, however the reception staff were... More

Stayed while on courses in Fremantle. The esplanade has always been the handy spot for staying in the area. Rooms are ok and some could do with a renovation. Staff are nice and the bar and restaurant always available.

An oasis of calm in busy Freemantle. Enjoy a beer or a wine by the pool and a freshly made pizza or other foods if you're hungry. Attentive, friendly staff and you can go for a swim if you want to. I recommend a visit to the poolside bar. .

Great hotel good value for money, Tavis the duty manager particularly helpful. Some of the rooms are rather tired and need updating. The breakfast is amazing loads of choice and plenty of it. Lovely pools shame they look onto the car park but it's disguised well. Great location would stay again.

The best place stay in Freo 🍷🍻🏊‍♀️. Since Ridges took over 3 or 4 years ago it's an even better hotel. Location to shops, museums, cinemas and restaurants is easy walking. There are many types of rooms in this very large three story hotel 😋 90 per cent excellent all with new "ridges beds". The pools, spar and sauna were... More

When researching where to stay, we were very impressed with the photos of this hotel and the extensive renovations that had been carried out since we were last in Fremantle. The exterior certainly has kerb appeal and the reception area looks impressive, although only a token attempt had been made with the Christmas tree. A lot of effort had also... More

Great location as a base to explore Fremantle. Staff were professional and courteous. Our room was clean, modern, well appointed with a pretty balcony. The only issue we experienced was a chaotic valet parking system. There were cars completely blocking the entrance to the hotel so no-one could drive through for drop off or pickups. When we returned to collect... More

Functions and events team are rude and not trained. Would not host an event there. Food average and staff are very authorotative. Accomodation very average but yet the cost is very high. Not a pleasant experience.

We had a pleasant 2 night stay in Freemantle and found the Esplande Hotel very convienent to the main eating areas as well as the Dock side fro a trip to Rottnest. Room was spacious and clean. Free wifi is great but found it difficult to use, maybe just me.

The Esplanade is a great conference venue. The food is very good and the conference rooms are well set up. Some of the accomodation does need a GPS to find them as they are a long way from reception and views of a car park are less than desirable. The rooms, however, are very clean and well appointed and the... More
