You could be mistaken for thinking you were visiting long lost cousins. A warm welcome to a beautifully restored old bank building followed by entering an immaculately presented spacious, clean room started the weekend for us. It got better from there. Spoil yourselves.

A lovely property with really good space and facilities. The owners were very welcoming and flexible and have put a lot of thought and effort into what is probably the best property in Beechworth. A marvellous, centrally located retreat for a relaxing short break.

Hi Alan, if you had a hip replacement surely you should have mentioned this to us and we could have put you in a downstairs room? We always strive for guest comfort and are alarmed that you would rate us as "average" due to your personal medical condition which we were u aware of. What a shame that this was...

Lovely, although our room was a little small it did allow direct access to the fabulous pool. Jim is the best host and thinks of nearly everything guests might need. We would certainly stay again. Freeman is in the perfect spot for walking to all the Beechworth attractions and restaurants and Jim is a wealth of local knowledge.

Amazing hospitality in a classy B&B. The room was superb. Breakfasts were great with little extra touches such as beautiful plates and cups and fruit served differently every day. You then return to your room to find it tidied up - the same as after dinner. Sitting each day by the gorgeously heated pool with afternoon tea and champagne felt...

“The room was unbelievable. Freeman on Ford is the most divine luxurious 5 star B & B. No detail has been overlooked. The absolute highlight are it's wonderful owners Jim & Heidi and the exquisite chef Megan. I cannot recommend the place more highly.
