AHA: Hotel surge in Fremantle

AHA: Hotel surge in Fremantle

Freemantle is playing a key role in establishing new hotels and accommodation to meet the needs of tourists, claims the Australian Hotels Association (AHA).

Fremantle is playing a key role in establishing new hotels and accommodation to meet the needs of tourists, claims the Australian Hotels Association (AHA).

Bradley Woods, chief executive of the AHA, explained Fremantle and Perth are set to see a sharp rise in hotels over the next five years, with the addition of 4,000 new rooms.

He added that around $3 billion could be spent on the developments as visitors to Western Australia continue to rise.

"The state government and Tourism West Australia in the past two years have done a superb job in attracting new hotel development interest and the cities of Perth and Fremantle have supported the process by facilitating more efficient and effective council consideration and approvals," explained Mr Woods to inmycommunity.com.au.

One new development is the Hougoumont Hotel on Bannister Street. Recently opened, the accommodation is targeted at wealthy visitors from overseas and across Australia. It is also around 15 minutes from Freemantle's famous cafe strip - one of the region's key tourist attractions.
