“Trad hosts, lovely place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 June 2012

This was exactly what I was after. Personalised service, old fashioned vibe and beautifully clean and warm. There is not much as heartwarming as "I'll just get you a cup of tea", after a long drive. We passed a very happy 3 nights with these kind people Heidi and Jim.

Room Tip: We had the blue room. It was great!

We booked for a birthday treat for my wife and were more than satisfied with the hospitality and charm of both Heidi and Jim . Nothing was too much trouble from the explanation of how things worked to the tour of their fabulous property . We even got valet parking !!! The afternoon tea on arrival was most welcome and a preview of one of the best breakfasts we have had anywhere . We will revisit again and this time stay in the downstairs apartments which are truly magnificent and would have no hesitation in recomending this B & B for a great stay .

Room Tip: The Victorian rooms upstairs are very comfortable but the 2 suites just completed downstairs are of...

We arrived in Beechworth determined to find the best place to stay for our few days away. Heidi and Jim showed us around with no obligation at all however after searching all accomodation in town we were sure that Freeman on Ford was the best. We were proven correct! The house is so charming, always sparklingly clean and fresh and warm. The spa was such a treat! Right smack bang in the middle of town so we walked everywhere. Heidi and Jim are amazing hosts who made us feel so welcome.. and the staff are incredibly friendly also.
Would happily go back anytime!

Room Tip: The deluxe suites are worth the extra money.....definitely.......especially if you like a glamorous...

My husband and I, along with another couple, spent two luxurious nights at Freeman on Ford during our recent indulgent trip of Victoria. We were warmly greeted by Heidi who immediately upon our arrival, made us feel very welcome and comfortable as she showed us through this beautifully restored historic building. We stayed in the Crystal Suite and our friends stayed in the Silver Suite...both suites are absolutely sumptuous and the Guests Common Lounge, with it's open fire burning was warm, cozy and comfortable. Freeman on Ford is very conveniently located in the beautiful town of Beechworth and within walking distance to pretty much everything. Many thanks also to Jackie who looked after us so well, not only spoiling us with delicious afternoon teas and breakfasts, but also booking tours and restaurants for us. Nothing was too much trouble for her and it was very evident that she is truly passionate about providing warm, friendly and excellent service. We have realised that 2 nights in Beechworth just wasn't enough... We will have to return and would love to stay at Freeman on Ford again in the future.
Thank you so much Heidi and Jim for a lovely and memorable stay in Beechworth.

Atmospheric rooms, lovely hosts who cook a mean breakfast, very welcoming of kids, and slap bang opposite the Provenance restaurant so only a short stumble home from dinner. What better way to spend an autumn weekend in the North-East of Victoria?
