Easily the best place we have ever stayed. 5 starts isn't enough. The friendliness. The luxury. Unbridled perfection. My wife and i honestly can't speak amy more highly of this place. We will be staying here again in the future.

This magnificent building,restored with such attention to detail was even more amazing due to the dedication of the two staff members that went out of their way to make our stay so enjoyable. The central location is great and the breakfast even better.

Spent 2 nights in Beechworth wrapped in the luxurious comfort of Freeman on Ford. The Freeman experience begins when you arrive at the Ford Street front entrance and are greeted by the imposing presence of the one-time bank building.

We were the only guests and were treated so well. Sal was a great host. Welcomed us with afternoon tea. Our room was comfortable and charming. Wi-fi worked well. Cable TV in the sitting room for chilling out. The cooked breakfast was excellent and generous! Tranquil surrounding, when time stood still and highly recomend for an overnight memorable stay.

The property was fantastic and the hosts were lovely. Breakfast was delicious and our room was exceptional. A tour of the property whilst learning some of the history of the property was a nice touch.

Originally a very old Bank, Freeman on Ford has been renovated into a beautiful B&B with Victorian decorated guest rooms upstairs and 1930's inspired guest rooms downstairs. Heidi and Jim are very welcoming hosts and have done a wonderful job creating this unique B&B. We will definitely be back.

I needed to cancel my booking due to pregnancy complication, and Heidi and Jim were totally understanding and flexible in offering a full refund. I hope to be able to come back and actually stay soon!
