This Freo institution, with unparalleled views of Fremantle Harbour, is back in business after a two-year, $7 million renovation. The results are prettier than a modern Scandinavian castle: contemporary four-poster beds, navy linens and slatted timber décor are a nod to the hotel’s waterfront views, while Sarah Kelk’s pastel artwork acts as a centrepiece for the revived aesthetic. Come for a great night’s sleep in one of the 83 spacious rooms, and stay for a chilled Little Creatures Pale Ale up at the new rooftop bar that locals are flocking to.
Time Out tip: Give yourself enough down time to enjoy a soak in the huge free standing baths.
