Old & New Collides

Built for smooth voyages.

With a prime location in the heart of historic Fremantle, The Hougoumont’s architectural vision was to transport guests through passages in time – past, present and future.

Fusing original built-form from the former Duke of York Hotel (est. 1901) with innovative sea container construction, this eternally evocative boutique small room hotel promises an intimate experience bringing you closer to people and places.

Setting the scene is a heritage–laced façade giving way to a dynamic blend of colours and materials, modernistic artwork by Troy Barbitta and custom-designed furniture from award-winning designer Yoshio Takagi.

The result is a melting pot for adventurous souls. Romantic escapees, pleasure seekers, corporate travellers, engineers, ship pilots, students and world wanderers. And they’re all here for the same reason – to experience what it’s like to be truly well travelled.
