Be Fremantle accommodation: sitting pretty in the port city

Be. Fremantle offers ocean views from each of its 24 serviced apartments.


Million dollar views at affordable prices that's the key philosophy behind Be. Fremantle and the 24 new apartments added to its existing apartment hotel in Fremantle's Fishing Boat Harbour. Known as Ocean View apartments, it is a nearly 50 percent increase in capacity for the property rated number one on TripAdvisor for accommodation in Fremantle.

Be. Fremantle is the brainchild of Justin Ward and Paul Grotegoed who decided, in the face of a tough local economy, to invest in the future growth of WA tourism and a rise in demand from travellers seeking the benefits of staying in serviced apartments instead of traditional hotel rooms. "We decided that we needed to create a new type of property that fitted into the market differently to the existing serviced apartment brands," Paul said.

The WA-born and bred owners have invested more than $10 million on the re-brand to Be. Fremantle, improvements to the 51 original apartments and building the 24 new apartments. Both have a long association with operating accommodation businesses in Fremantle and have worked closely with Fishing Boat Harbour's local business community.

Be. Fremantle offers the choice of studio and one, two and three-bedroom apartments.

"We see Fremantle changing from a day-trip destination to a place where more travellers are choosing to base themselves and then go on to explore from there," Justin said. "The Rottnest ferry is just a few minutes' walk away and the markets, Fremantle Prison, Bathers Beach and other attractions are all close by.

"Perth is only 25 minutes by train and tourists can also easily get to other attractions, such as Cottesloe Beach, Penguin Island and Rockingham's swimming with dolphins experience. Visitors are staying in a more relaxed and socially vibrant location, able to enjoy all the new restaurants and bars in Fremantle."

The large and spacious apartments have ocean views north-west to Rottnest Island and the North Mole lighthouse and south-east down the coast towards Rockingham. Targeting both leisure and corporate travellers, the Ocean View apartments have free high-speed wifi, Nespresso machines and all the facilities required for a self-sufficient stay, such as kitchens and laundries.

The apartments in Fremantle are in a central tourism hotspot, just a stepping stone away from all the major popular tourist destinations.

"Over the past few years, there has been significant investment in and around Fremantle, especially Fishing Boat Harbour," Paul said. "We are already seeing strong rewards with increased visitation from south-east Asia, particularly Singapore, as well as the US and UK.

"But, importantly, we are also seeing growth from our local West Australian market and visitors travelling from the eastern states. There's been a change in preference to more apartment-style accommodation and Be. Fremantle is the only property on the absolute waterfront in the metropolitan area with views from every room.

"It's also the only apartment hotel in Perth able to offer studios all the way through to three-bedroom apartments." More information is available at www.befremantle.com.au.
