Perfect for families
Very spacy and comfortable cottage with a lot of charm. We very much appreciated the early check in and the convenience of leaving part of our luggage while we were on an in-between trip to Rottnest Island. Our kids loved the placed because there is a sort of playroom as well.

A real Colonial Experience - Loved it
Clean, Comfortable & Cheap, close to everything Freo, great, helpful staff and the building had everything you could want or need, a real step back in time a truly hidden gem, a taste of life in times gone by.

Beds were very comfortable. We had two cottages and the family enjoyed the entire experience. Close to all the Fremantle sights. The children were intrigued by the prison and the surrounds and history.
