Fremantle Colonial Accommodation - Review

When we went up to Fremantle for the Night tour of Fremantle Prison we wanted to stay overnight within walking distance of the prison and a quick search on the internet brought us to the Fremantle Colonial Accommodation website.

The location was ideal as it is literally just across the road from the prison and although information and pictures on the website were a little sparse, it did look rather attractive. The $160 price tag is a bit above our normal range but we decided that the atmosphere of the heritage building would be worth a few extra dollars and we were not disappointed.

Check-in time was surprisingly early (12 noon) and the off street parking was a real bonus as we were able to arrive a little early and go off to do a bit of shopping.

 

After collecting the keys we entered the high ceilinged hallway that was filled with a delightful scent coming from a diffuser. Doors led to various apartments and stairs on the side of the hall led up to our room (No. 4).

The room wasn't huge but was certainly adequate. The furnishings were designed to suit the lovely old building and everything was spotlessly clean.

There are basic tea and coffee making facilities and there are also plates and utensils that are extremely useful for those who want to bring take-away food back to the room. The fridge was a small bar type but was large enough to hold our drinks, fruit and other odds and ends.

As we were only staying one night we didn't have much in the way of luggage but there were cupboards and draws available if we had stayed longer and wanted to unpack.

 

The en-suite bathroom was narrow but still managed to contain everything we needed. It was very attractively decorated, as was the rest of the building. Towels were provided as well as shampoo and soap.

 

The rooms are air-conditioned and other facilities include a small television and internet access.

Beds are one of my biggest worries when staying away from home as I have back problems. Thankfully the bed was firm but still comfortable and I was able to sleep soundly and woke up without any pain.

 

There are restaurants within easy walking distance on High Street and we opted for Indian food for lunch and Chinese for dinner. Both were tasty, plentiful and very reasonably priced.

 

Although our stay was short, we really did enjoy the colonial atmosphere of the building and it added a nice touch to our trip. Location was good and sleep quality was excellent as there was no noise of any kind to disturb our sleep.
