Unique Quality: The hotel was built on the site of an earlier hotel (Albert Hotel) which was owned by Capt John Thomas. A stained glass window is in St John’s Church in his honour. The Commercial was originally known as Exchange Hotel from 1882 to 1888 when it changed names to the Commercial Hotel. Originally the hotel had 3 storey verandahs and balconies and stables and coach houses at the rear but the hotel was rebuilt in 1908. The hotel was purchased in 1920 and further repairs and renovations were carried out in 1941.
I didn't stay in Fremantle but spotted this place and it looked fairly decent, especially good for travellers on a budget as it has dowm rooms that are cheap.
