Is there anything more lovely on a day than sitting in the sunshine, enjoying fine dining and excellent wines, with the tinkling of the river or the gentle lull of the sea in the background?
Peacefully situated on the banks of the Swan River and the entrance to the Indian Ocean. Pier 21 Apartment Hotel in North Fremantle, Perth is the perfect location to relax and watch the world go by.
Spacious self-contained apartments with breathtaking views, each having its own private balcony from which guests can enjoy the magnificent panorama, with most apartments overlooking the Swan River.
This is not an average hotel. When you arrive you really feel you are in a paradise. You open your window and you see the yachts and the views. There's not much point staying in an international chain hotel when you are in a city like Perth, you need to give something like this a go where peace reigns supreme and visitors are left spellbound. It's truly a memorable experience and location not to be missed. I'm glad that i have gained such rare experience in my life.
The historical port city of Fremantle offers cosmopolitan and innovative cafes and restaurants. Fremantle is a true reflection of Western Australia's heritage through historical buildings, art and craft galleries, local markets and live entertainment, all of which create a unique and exciting atmosphere.
One thing that I know for sure about myself after leaving Fremantle: I want a yacht. I may never be able to afford one, but seeing all the fancy yachts made me want one. And there were a lot of fancy yachts.
Superbly positioned on the banks of the Swan River, Pier 21 really enjoy unrivalled views of both the river and adjacent marina.
Maybe you’ve never had yacht envy. I admit to a little envy myself after seeing the interiors of these beauties.
You can really see the beautiful sunrise and the sunset from this place.
Day and night meet fleetingly at twilight and dawn. And their merging sometimes affords the beholder the most enchanted moments of all the twenty four hours. A sunrise or sunset can be ablaze with brilliance and arouse all the passion, all the yearning, in the soul of the beholder. There's a sunrise and a sunset every single day, and they're absolutely free. Don't miss so many of them.
I do have to admit that the sunrise view was stunning. I was inspired along the journey. I kept telling myself to “think deep thoughts” while admiring the amazing sunrise. I can honestly say that I did have a few deep thoughts but it was overall an interesting experience, one that I was not expecting to have over the trip.
At sunrise everything is luminous but not clear.
Pier 21 Apartment Hotel at North Fremantle is a lovely location in Perth which for me was quiet and serene. Take advantage of the old Perth heritage to enjoy a unique stay at a seaside hotel - not just another few days in a lounge chair but a real feeling of being in Perth.
