All the charm of a hostel with the service of a five star chain. This boutique hotel offers complimentary wine and canapés for guests every night of their stay, in addition to morning tea and toast. The rooms resemble a cabin in the forest, decked out with teak, raffia and contemporary and abstract artwork that wouldn’t look out of place in a modern art museum. Located just steps away from Freo’s bustling “cappuccino strip” and foreshore, guests will have to remind themselves to jump on a nearby train to explore all of Perth after they check in.
Time Out tip: Make room for dessert at Bread in Common at the end of the street. Burnt toast ice cream is their speciality.
Modernistic architecture for the modern traveller.
Building on a legacy
The Hougoumont’s architectural vision sees original built-form from the former duke of york Hotel (est. 1901) integrated with modernistic artwork by Troy Barbitta and cutting edge sustainability.
To reside here is to be immersed in the character of centuries past and the bold attitudes of aesthetic innovation, with a heritage–laced façade giving way to a dynamic use of colours and materials, including custom designed furniture from award winning designer yoshio Takagi.
eternally evocative, the Hougoumont heralds the arrival of a new architectural icon in the port city and an enticing option for the business traveller and pleasure seeker.
