Hougoumont Hotel Background

Testimonials & Reviews

“Amazing boutique hotel with friendly service”

From the moment I arrived I was greeted by friendly staff. The room was great with extras such as a Nespresso machine, but the strong point was the excellent service. Drinks and nibbles at 5.00pm every day was a bonus!

“Fantasic Boutique Hotel!”

I had the pleasure of staying at the Hougoumont hotel for 9 nights recently. The location of the hotel is fantastic. You are literally steps to all the action in the heard of Freo. You are also a short walk to the train station. The hotel staff could not be nicer. They always had a friendly wave as I came into the building. The lobby is so welcoming and offers tons of seating and several computers. The hotel offers complimentary wine and cheese every weeknight at 5. This was a nice opportunity for guests to have a short chat, which made the hotel feel that much warmer.

The rooms are beautiful. They are small but I loved that. I was traveling alone so being in a cozy room was perfect. The bathroom was nice; I loved the shower, which offered two showerheads! The one thing to note is that the bathroom doors don't lock. The beds were comfortable and the hotel itself was rather quiet to sleep at night. There was also complimentary water, tea and coffee in the room.

All in all it was a fabulous place to stay and I'm hoping to go back sometime in the not too distant future!

“Rejuvenating oasis”

Where do I begin with how wonderful I found this place to be???
The concept is great - sea containers repurposed into a modern modular hotel behind an historic funky facade - very groovy. The location is fantastic - very central in Fremantle, but whisper quiet overnight.

The bed was SUPREMELY comfortable. Sleeping in the comfy bed in the quite room was like being in a tranquil cocoon. The room was very clean, the toiletries were luxurious and smelled wonderful. The towels were soft and large. The airconditioner worked brilliantly and was virtually silent. The shower was large and had fantastic water pressure. They provided evening wine and cheese from 5-6pm on weeknights, included in the room rate, and parking next door (extra, but still value for money). The staff were absolutely lovely, and managed to swing early checkin for my tired travellers body. I would give it 6 stars if I could!

Great upmarket place, great value too.”

Great room with fantastic staff. Very welcoming from the moment I got there. Very centrally located, close to restaurants, etc. Nice new bathroom, bedroom. Comfortable bed, choice of pillows! Overall design is well thought out. Very well priced Would definitely come back again.

I would like to commend your staff for the efficient and very friendly service.
I really loved the fact that the water was free. There's nothing more annoying than paying good money for a hotel room then being charged a ridiculous amount for a simple drink of water. I also loved the silk tea bags and the wine and cheese offerings. My husband was also very happy with the free wi-fi.
We would recommend your hotel without hesitation.


Thanks for your email upon my departure from the hotel on Saturday.  I just wanted to say how much I enjoyed staying at the Hougoumont - the place is a breath of fresh air compared to the other dated and/or overpriced hotels I've stayed at on previous trips to Perth.

I wanted to specifically thank Bec on reception for her help and kindness - she really went the extra mile to make me feel comfortable, so please pass on my thanks.

I will let my colleagues, who also travel to Perth for work, know about the Hougoumont, and hopefully I will have a chance to come and stay again next time I'm in WA.
