Fothergills manages to capture an eclectic arty charm a short walk from the centre of town. The rooms are big, bright and clean. Service is unobtrusive and reliable. Breakfast was fresh and plentiful. Will stay again.

Fothergills was a delightful venue - you could watch wonderful sunsets from the balcony, relax in a unique court yard for meals and enjoy a very good ensuite. Plus it was close to the Fremantle action and felt it was a home away from home with its comfortable surroundings and providing an enjoyable walk to the action of Fremantle. Staff...

We stayed in the Endeavour suite which was clean and comfortable with a private bathroom and balcony. Breakfast was delightfully prepared by a young French woman who was very friendly and most capable. The only complaint was that although the bed looked good it probably needed a new mattress...not really comfortable. Enjoyed our stay which was relaxing.

Not a bad B and B but I've certainly been to a lot that are better than this one. Our room was very small with a minute ensuite however it was comfortable with nice linen. All the rooms were situated upstairs and some would have better outlooks than others. Because we booked online through Expedia our deal did not include...

David the owner greeted us on arrival and gave us a wonderful tour of the two buildings that belong to Fothergills and we were delighted to view all the wonderful pieces of art and sculptures that are through the buildings and grounds of Fothergills. The room was very tastefully...

Nice old building, creeky floorboards, just a room with a very small bath room added on in the corner of a room. The bathroom was very very small so if you are of a larger build you wouldn't really fit in. Stair case very small. Very very expensive for just a room but thats Fremantle ....

We have been lucky enough to stay in many BnBs in our world travels and without a doubt Fothergills is one of the best yet. I only wish we had stayed longer than 2 nights for it takes a day just to fully appreciate the immaculate 1896 building, gardens, sculptures and interior decor. The "over the top" attention to detail...

Staying at Fothergills for our first anniversary(2007) was enjoyable for the proximity of all Freo has to offer. Returning there last weekend for the 10th was amazing for what Fothergills has developed into! The enthusiasm of the staff for guests, the laid back vibe of the place, the ART WORKS alone are worth the visit to meander all over the...
