If you are prepared to sacrifice a tiny bit of convenience to spend time in as authentic a French provincial pension as you are likely to find in Australia then this is for you.
Our room was not huge but quite adequate and comfortable and decked out in genuine French provincial style, with a great view of the quaint courtyard from the balcony, the breakfast is more than adequate and delicious and the staff very helpful, You can honestly imagine that you have been transported to somewhere in the middle of France. There is very little street noise despite being only a few metres stroll from Fremantle's lively Cappuccino Strip, Fremantle Markets and a comfortable walk across Esplanade Park to the Harbour and Beach. There is even a proper French wine bar next to the entrance.
The downsides, if they bother you, are that there is next to no free parking in the area, access is slightly convoluted (especially after hours) though this helps maintain the quietness and privacy of the site, and there are some narrow (very French!) stairs to negotiate but nothing terrible. It all added to the atmosphere in our opinion.
We loved it and would very happily stay again.
