I decided to stay here overnight so that I could attend a concert and have a few drinks then not have to worry about driving home.

On arrival as with all Rydges hotels I found the staff friendly, helpful and efficient which I have come to expect from the Rydges group.

The room was your standard fare but it was noticeable that the room could do with a little bit of a spruce up with some painting touch up and an air-conditioner controller that is easily adjusted when temperature need to be a changed during the night.

One of my biggest issues with hotels in Australia no matter the chain or rating is no complimentary water for the guests. This is something that in our dry climate helps the guest feel comfortable on a hot day and also feel welcome.

I arrived back at the hotel around midnight and as I walked back to the room I noticed that the corridors the further from the elevator looked like they needed some sprucing up as well .

Overall it's was an okay stay but it's the location and staff that make this hotel but some renovations are required.

Room Tip: Try for a room away from the lifts.

Our stay over two nights was better than our expectations.
The Reception was smooth, accommodation, and breakfast excellent.
The hotel was well suited to cover the three functions which we attended..
A Meet & Greet, Installation of a new District Grand Master and a Grand Banquet,
all in the Esplanade Hotel.

The hotel is in a prime location on Marine Terrace. The restaurants and attractions of Fremantle are within easy walking distance.

The rooms are clean and well appointed. My room had a balcony which is ideal for reading the paper on a warm Fremantle afternoon.

My only criticism was that the shower managed to leak water onto the bathroom floor despite my efforts to avoid this.

The concierege has a wide range of brochures for local attractions and will make bookings if required.

Wifi is of good speed and is complimnentary for a gigabyte of data per 24 hour period.

From the time that we arrived - 2 hours early - the concierge & the receptionist were very friendly & professional. The room was all that we expected & more, the cost was more than reasonable. The spa bath in the Executive room was great. The food in the hotel smelt fantastic. We wish we had of eaten their instead of choosing another restaurant on the cappuccino strip. The free WIFI was a bonus as well.

Room Tip: Choose the Executive Spa room, they are great
