Judge's citation:

After almost being destroyed by fire, the restoration and conservation of the National Hotel is a credit to its committed owner who went above and beyond what was expected, and adhered to best practice heritage conservation to return this landmark hotel to the Fremantle community.

The National Hotel is a beautifully restored iconic hotel in the centre of Fremantle. It is designed in Federation, free style architecture expressing the affluence of the gold boom years. Almost completely destroyed by fire in 2007 this magnificent building has been resurrected from the ashes and is now an outstanding example of how a modern bar and restaurant facility can operate in harmony with a heritage building.

The Carnegies Group went to great lengths to faithfully restore this building whilst making it work as a modern day bar and restaurant.

The owner’s vision for The National Hotel is to give the Fremantle people and visitors to the area a beautifully restored, heritage building that has stayed true to its original use and appearance.
