We stayed in the executive suite. The actual unit was quite good and seemed clean and reasonably well apppointed for the price, especially given its convenient proximity to the centre of Fremantle. However, there are a number of issues which soured our stay. On driving into the car park, our initial impression was not helped by the staff sitting around having their smokes near the carpark. We are very sensitive to smoking in general so we felt like the rest of the stay in the apartment was tainted by cigarette residues particularly with dirty ash trays left on tables outside apartment doors. We then found that the TV operated very intermittently due to poor reception. We were told that this was due to the interference from the nearby hospital. Only DVDs coud be watched as a result. Some of the furnishings were also not up to scratch e.g. poor quality sheets, only two thin blankets, thin towels, bathroom door could not be shut properly and toilet seat was coming off its hinges. The street in which the hotel is located is quite rundown. While this may not be a concern to some (and indeed may be considered to be part of the atmosphere of old Fremantle), we expected better. We were also kept awake one night till after 2.00am by very noisy neighbours.
If we happen to visit Fremantle again in the future, we will definitely stay somewhere else even if it costs substantially more.
