Perfect For

Short getaways, impressing business guests, wedding accommodation and seasoned travellers.

We Loved

The close proximity to the Freo strip and Freo’s great restaurants and cafes. Complimentary wine and cheese on weekdays between 5 - 6 pm and free bike hire.

The Story

Our Venusers fancied a quick getaway and so headed south to Fremantle in the mid afternoon on a Friday. We’d all heard about the Hougoumont and wanted to experience it for ourselves. And for you guys!

The friendly staff are definitely worthy of mention. They were all very accommodating and struck the perfect balance between being attentive and caring, and allowing us to enjoy our privacy.

This cleverly conceived conversion has done a very intelligent job of blending the heritage features with new additions to create an exceptional accommodation venue. This hotel does Fremantle proud, and really deserves a place on the main strip, where everyone could see it!

This hotel feels more intimate than the number of rooms on offer. There’s a nice, quiet communal area to relax, have a drink or coffee and use the internet.

Our room was not large, but had everything we needed and was presented in a well organised way. It gave us an excellent base for exploring Freo and returning to relax, refresh and eventually crash out in comfort.

The Hougoumont has an environmental conscious and gives guests reminders and hints about water use and laundry services, as well as the opportunity to hire pedal power for free.

A nice tough in the rooms is complimentary Rubra teas and Nespresso machines and pods all ready to go. Thanks George Clooney!

Our Venusers had a great weekend in Freo and loved having the Hougoumont Hotel as their stylish and well serviced base.
