My husband booked us this boutique hotel in the heart of Fremantle for a rescheduled, celebration of our 30th wedding anniversary. Usually we would’ve stayed in the city but decided on something different having heard rave recommendations from a few friends about The Hougoumont.
On arrival we instantly felt like we were back in Europe on summer vacation…then to be greeted by a warm, friendly, beautifully dressed Italian man, called Mauritzio, really nailed the nostalgia.
Check in was smooth and quick. You could feel the natural friendly vibe amongst all the staff as everyone was so attentive and welcoming.
I don’t understand anyone’s complaints about ‘small rooms’ as it clearly states on their website that its a small room boutique hotel using sea container construction. Our room was lovely and on point…until I notice the shower had been missed by cleaning staff., I informed the front desk and it was Mauritzio that quickly attended our room and cleaned the shower himself….WOW!! Now that’s old school hospitality service.
The hotel is in the heart of Freo & close to everything, restaurants, bars, tourist attractions and the ferry to Rottnest Island.
*The grilled halloumi at Little Creatures Brewery is to die for.
This funky hotel is beautifully designed, stunning furniture & artworks, appropriately staffed, relaxing and sophisticated.
And the kicker has to be the complimentary cheese and wine hour at the end of our stay.
Thank you Hougoumont we can’t wait to come back.
