Experience the vibrant port side city of Fremantle at the Esplanade Hotel Fremantle – by Rydges. Famous for its parkside location and rich Freo history, this iconic establishment offers excellent accommodation, delicious dining options, and flexible conference & and meeting facilities. It’s also the perfect wedding venue.

Located in a premier position along Marine Terrace, this grand old lady was completed in 1830. It’s had many colourful past lives, including convict housing, laundry, warehouse, bakery and bond house, before opening as a hotel in 1896 at the height of the gold rush., which brought much prosperity to Fremantle.

Recent renovations have preserved the Esplanade’s elegant character and helped to create a wonderful mix of old world charm and contemporary style. The design concept incorporates references to the history of the building and Fremantle as a port city; the furnishings and fittings also reflect this period. The hotel’s main entrance and lobby has been refurbished to create a more open, light-filled space. The 300 guest rooms are well appointed, with mini bar, wi-fi, IDD & STD dialling, LCD TV with Foxtel and individually controlled air-conditioning. Most have a private balcony.
