    Beautiful rooms, stunning views and top service. We could not have been happier being treated to the bridal suite at the Esplanade Hotel Fremantle. The space we had in the bridal suite meant our hair and make-up artists had plenty of room to work in the morning while the girls were getting ready and the boys had a ball getting ready in the premier suites.

    Great place to stay, very comfortable and loved being able to check out at 1pm. Just what you need after a late night.

    Hi Debra, Thank you for your kind feedback who doesn't love a cheeky sleep in?! We hope you will come and spend more late nights with us soon.

    September 2019

    The Esplanade location was lovely. The food was good, and the day ran smoothly. There were just a few minor details that they needed to be reminded of multiple times, right up until only a couple hours before the wedding. But at the end of the day, everything ran smoothly, and Belle (the lady who was in charge of keeping everything on schedule and looking after the bridal party) did a wonderful job. Beautiful day.

    Graeme M.

    Esplanade Hotel Fremantle - by Rydges

    Hi Graeme, Congratulations on your big day - we are happy we could be a part of it! Belle truly is amazing when it comes to getting things done (especially when it comes to the minor details). We hope to see you again soon!
