I have to admit, I love Fremantle, and would gladly move there if I could, so recently, as we had a lot of reasons to venture there, I couldn’t have been happier. We had a party to attend in Fremantle so thought instead of catching a taxi there and back we’d stay at a little B & B on South Terrace. Situated on the corner of Scott Street, the South Beach B & B is in an excellent location and definitely represents value for money. There is also free parking in Scott Street.
I didn’t get a picture of the front, but this one is from Booking.com where you can get more information and it’s the site we booked on.
From the moment you entered you could tell they had an eye for detail. The beautifully lit hall stand with a decanter of Port and a crystal bowl of chocolates, which I dipped into later in the night, was so welcoming and homely.
Our room was charming and everything you could need had been thought of. The bed was comfortable, with a gorgeous fireplace and the room was very clean, what more could you ask for, well maybe the ensuite could have been a little larger. It did make for a bit of a comedy routine as we both tried to get ready in this tiny room.
The hosts Pete and Sally were away for the weekend so Pete’s sister, unfortunately I didn’t get her name, did an excellent job of stepping in for them.
We had breakfast in the lovely enclosed breakfast area, as it was much too windy to sit outside. The breakfast was simple, cereal, juice, coffee and fresh bread, which was still warm, but it looked so lovely.
I loved the room and our host and would recommend this B & B to anyone wishing to stay in the area.
There will be more from Fremantle over the next few posts.
