A modern and contemporary, boutique hotel in the heart of Fremantle, The Hougoumont is ultimately luxurious.

Beginning at the beginning, the Hougoumont Hotel was named after a famous and infamous, three masted, ocean-going sailing ship – built in the 1850s and one of the last to bring convicts from Plymouth to Port Adelaide. Make the Hougoumont a destination on your luxury, tailor-made holiday to Australia and you’ll find the hotel also stands in a historic part of town; the famed Banister Street. Old though the walls of the hotel undoubtedly are, you’ll find that the internal appointments - as well as the thinking behind the hotel - are decidedly modern. Rather than superfluous space and fripperies, the Hougoumont concentrates on style, chic interior décor, state-of-the-art connectivity and, of course, a central setting that means the reasons you’re visiting Fremantle are just a few minutes walk away.

  • We have travelled with TUTC six times, the most recent was to New Zealand last year. The trip was very well organised as usual, with excellent accommodation and a wide variety of experiences. We had booked to go to Australia with them this year but due to Covid this was cancelled, Ultimate handled the situation very professionally and promptly refunded the whole of our deposit without any quibble.
