Our first visit to Western Australia was not a pleasant one, we had booked accommodation for 6 nights (March/April 2010) at the Ocean View Motel, Lawley Street, North Beach, WA. We booked after several phone calls to ensure the premises were 'clean' and centrally located. We were very disappointed to find the room dirty (not new dirt but old dirt) and we expected a full kitchen. Upon checking the information supplied in the room I was horrified to learn we had to wash our dishes in a plastic bucket (no sink) so how were we to prepare a meal!!! And the bathroom was disgusting. We were tired from travelling on our first night but on the second day I went to the local supermarket and purchased gloves, shower cleaner, scourer and a toothbrush to clean the bathroom. We reported to reception that the fridge in our room was not working properly, yes it would be checked! The next day and for the duration of our stay we had no cold drinks etc. We even asked for a bucket to put ice in so we could have cold drinks. For the price you would expect the 'basics' to be functional. For the first 3 days of our stay I found reception staff unhelpful the rest of the stay the staff were more pleasant and willing to help. I am in the tourism industry which in this case is a disadvantage. I could not recommend this accommodation.
