A major internal makeover to Block 1 of Fremantle’s historic Warders Cottages has transformed the circa-1850s property into a luxury boutique hotel, with owners W1 Hospitality unveiling the property this week.
The comprehensive refurbishment at The Warders Hotel, located next to the Fremantle Markets, has seen the opening of an 11-room property within the former convict housing establishment. Rooms have been sound proofed and renovated to now offer marble bathrooms, modern AV technology and high-end furnishings, with rooms overlooking the busy Fremantle town square below.
Room facilities include a QR Code room service menu, small kitchenette, complimentary mini bar, free breakfast and sparkling water tap direct to each room.
Further enhancements to the complex include the opening of the new 220-seat Emily Taylor Bar and Kitchen and 15-seat Gimlet Aperitivo Bar, with guests given VIP access seating to the restaurant when booking a table.
Emily Taylor Bar & Kitchen incorporates a street food concept featuring cuisines from different parts of Asia including Peking Duck and Thai curries.
Warders Hotel General Manager, Timothy Buckton, said a stay in the hotel will give guests a glimpse of what life was like back in the 1850s.
“While our guests will be attracted to the Hotel’s central Fremantle location, many are looking for that little extra in service and amenity,” he said.
“The Warders Hotel is situated next to Perth’s most popular tourist destination, the Fremantle Markets. One step outside and you are caught up in Fremantle’s amazing attractions from boutique shops to street buskers to the port ferries and Rottnest Island.”
