“Coral Street Cottage is comfortable, well situated and to our ta” We are an australian couple in out mid-60s who spent a week in the Coral St cottage in early autumn. When we travel our preferred accommodation is a self contained flat or cottage such as Coral St as it gives us a flexibility that we don't otherwise find. We have stayed in flats or cottages in European capitals and rural areas as well as in australia. Our assessment of Coral St is against this background.
If you are going to stay in Fremantle I have no hesitation in recommending Coral St cottage. It is well located with ready access to the main town, what it has to offer and the South Terrace coffee strip. South Beach, a terrific swimming beach, is a short walk away. We made do without a car as everything that we wanted to do was within easy walking distance or readily accessible by public transport. But, if you do have a car, we noted that there was sufficient street parking along Coral St for it not to be a hassle.
On arrival we were greeted with a very generous hamper of fruit, bread, breakfast cereal etc. sufficient for us to get through most of the week. The cottage was very clean and comfortable with all that you need for self catering should you want to do so. Moreover, if you are staying in and TV is not your thing, the cottage has a small library far above the usual pulp fiction of other travellers' left over paperbacks usually found in australia.
On the downside, there is no Wi-Fi, but that is no great difficulty if you need to be connected as there are plenty of hot spots around. Some might find the Cottage's small European shower size difficult.
All in all our experience of Coral St cottage was overwhelmingly positive and we have already recommended it to our friends as somewhere to stay if they are going to Perth and want to stay in Fremantle.
We have to go back to Perth later in the year and we intend to book again at the Coral St cottage.
