Stayed for only one night as we were attending a function in Fremantle. Were given the room key with no instructions of how to get to it, ended up lost and a repairman directed us in the end. Went down to use the pool and I couldn't locate a towel. Went inside to ask a staff member who said that they didn't know where to find a towel and to go to reception. Given that I was in pool attire, I didn't feel comfortable having to walk all the way through the busy hotel to reception to try to locate a towel. When I went back outside another guest was able to point me in the right direction to the towels. Pool had quite a bit of debris at the bottom and there were no steps to help you out at the sides where the railings were.
Our room was clean and quite comfortable albeit very dark with a "glorious" view of a rooftop next door. The room looked nothing like the photos on the website. In all, this is a very expensive hotel for what you get. Wouldn't recommend to anyone and probably wouldn't go back. Much better accommodation in Fremantle for value. Unfortunately The Esplanade runs on its reputation of being one of the most prestigious in Fremantle but doesn't live up to it at all. Very disappointing!
