KARRINYUP WATERS CARAVAN PARK: GOOD LOCATION
Looking for accommodation in Perth, I came across the Karrinyup Waters Caravan park which had good reviews, was situated on the north side of Perth which suited us fine, and public transport a short walk away. This was good enough for me!
On booking a powered site for several nights, we had to follow a worker in a golf buggy to see the sites available, and to choose one we liked. The Park has a security boom gate for safety, I always like this! We chose a site under a tree that overlooked the Lake in the park. We were close to 2 Amenitie blocks and bbq area. My husband backed the van in quite ok, but if you have trouble, the worker will do it for you. We found the workers at the Park very helpful.
It was raining, so we were very thankful to have a full concrete slab for our caravan and annexe, this was level and the concrete saved us from dragging mud into the van.
As its a big park, there are 5 Amenitie blocks, some better than others. I liked the block of ensuite amenities, where every shower & toilet was in a separate room with own door. In the same block was the laundry with brand new washers and dryers. Cost $4 a wash, and you could use hot water! There were plenty of outdoor drying lines.
The office is reception and has a small shop, next door is a room where heaps of free brochures on Perth and surrounds, Books for exchange and PAY internet is found. Baggage storage is available.
Other facilities were a Heated Spa, Heated Lap Pool with children's area, swimming pool, 2 Camper's kitchens, Jumbo Jumping Pillow, 2 Playgrounds. Dump point for caravan and campervans.
The staff were helpful and friendly. We asked about public transport into Perth, and they told us the bus stop had been moved from the front gate and now was located on the road up the hill. This wasn't a problem for us, approx. 10 - 15min walk uphill to the Bus stop. A very good service to the city.
Our only complaint was the drops of rain from the leaves onto the Caravan, I didn't get real good nights sleeps even though it was very quiet. We wished we had chosen the smaller site without a tree.
This Caravan Park is well maintained and cared for, and was quiet because of a strict 10pm quiet time They even have huge pet Rabbits running wild in the Park and friendly Ducks.
Would I return to here? YES!

AirBnB: Cheap & Nice Accommodation
The AirBnB accommodation that we booked is at Plomarion Rise. We took a taxi there on the recommendation of the owner. Shouldn't have had problem if we were to self-drive with navigation.
The room is nicely decorated with a huge TV in the room. There is a living room with TV. There is a kitchen, dinning area, laundry room, patio and garage. Upper floors are more rooms and toilets.
The place is in a quiet area and is great place for relaxation on holiday.
Nearby (less then 2km) away, there are the supermarkets Coles and Woolworths.

A Northbridge area hostel (Perth): Underground Hostel
This place was fine, nothing special but no complaints either. It has some negative reviews online, mostly related to the noise level.
I stayed in a private room here so I don't know what the dorm atmosphere is like. Since its in Northbridge though, which is a party district, it might be harder to get a great sleep but definitely not impossible. Beds and dorms are comfy and clean.
The prices were standard; same as any other Perth hostel - around $30/night for a form, and $80 for a private room. Breakfast was also included in the price. They have a large reception area with brochures, info panflits for things to do around Perth and Australia.

Settlers Rest: Feed The Animals
We had one of the lovliest stay-over at the cottage. Beside the lodging is a farm that is run by the owners. They also breed competition horses.
This provided the children with the opportunity to feed the animals in the morning. There were lambs, sheeps, goats, one cow, and chickens. There were at least 2-3 eggs that the children will pick, and that would be our breakfast for the morning.

Settlers Rest Farmstay: A Farm That's Near The City
I did all my ground checks - internet, google street - anything that could give me an idea of how our lodging will look like. Ok, I can see that it's a farm, and yes, it has been decorated to reflect the true Australian architecture. Since it's a farm stay, the land area that's opened to you is tremendous. You can also breathe in the unadulterated fresh airwhilst at dusk, marvel at the twinkling stars.
No words nor pictures could describe the experience of just stepping into the cottage. Lovely cushioned seats, polished wooden floor with a nice brown carpet over it. The rooms looked cushy and the beds are come with electric blankets.
It would have been better if all rooms had heater though.
The cottage comes with a full kitchen, dining area and washing area. The issue that we had was that there was only one toilet with the shower attached. We Singaporeans are so pampered as our homes usually comes with two toilets. Anyhow, humans are always adaptable to the conditions that are thrown to us.

Esplanade Hotel Fremantle: Old Hotel needs TLC
We stayed for a week in July, having chosen this as the best hotel in Freo. Our room was very unclean but even though we reported this a few times it was days before we were offered a clean one. The new one was very gloomy and horribly decorated. The whole hotel has a gloom about it very 'grey'. It's position is great near the ocean and the rest of the city. We never ate there at all, the evening buffet looked as if it had been there for ages. The breakfast was v. expensive so we had ours in the cafe just a little way down the road, very good coffee and food.
I would not recommend this hotel to anyone there are too many things wrong but with a little TLC it could be great. The staff were mainly helpful but obviously the cleaners do not do their job and it is not checked often enough.
Short walk to the centre of Freo. Good view from the front of the ocean.

Murray Street Lodge Hotel: A rare find
A rare find - very friendly staff, all amenities, close to everything and very affordable too.
Murray Street Lodge Hotel (formally Murray Street Lodge) is easy to reach from Perth Airport as it is very close to the freeway and therefore no problems in trying to find.
The rooms are generous and have a king sized bed (actually 2 singles "bolted together") and a single bed. Also a couch, a reading/writing desk and chair, open clothes hanging area, small fridge and tea and coffee making facilities. Perhaps the only down side is small bathrooms.
Public area includes 2 guest use computers and a general purpose breakfast/bar/restaurant area. Breakfast is included in the terrif and is self serve and consists of fruit juice, choice of cereals, 3 types of bread for toasting and selection of jams/vegemite, then coffee or tea. There's a small swimming pool and a beer garden. The free CAT bus stops at the door and is every 10 minutes Monday to Friday. A block away in Hay Street is a choice of small supermarkets and a few cafes/restaurants - warning, many are closed at the weekends/public holidays. Free car parking for guest cars is an added bonus and there is a large fuel station next door.
The Hotel is close (almost walking distance) to the famous Subiaco Oval and the bars and nightlife of Subiaco.
Price is a very reasonable $A135 per night for 2 people and there is a discount for seniors, but card holders must advise when booking and/or checking in.
All up a great place to stay and the price is the real clincher

Glory Orchard Farm Resort: Farmstay
The chalet is a 20 star compare to Criterion hotel. The 2 bedroom chalet is huge and spacious and very very clean. The chalet faces a manmade lake.
In terms of farm activity, it is severely lacking. Kids only get to feed horses and sheeps,pluck sour oranges and see the winery, thats all.
Food was not so good..The owner was nice enough to take us to Bindoon town as there was nothing to do in the farm, not that there was anything to do in the town, it was a nice drive though, just to fill up the time.
It was awesome to see so many stars at night. Coming from Singapore where its so difficult to see stars, we were really starstruck,could have stayed out all night to watch the stars except it was so so cold..

Esplanade Hotel Fremantle: No sleep required
"Location, location, location!" goes the mantra. Upon arrival at the Esplanade hotel in Fremantle, this certainly seems to be the case. It is a beautiful looking hotel within walking distance of all the important tourist bits (Freo market, foreshore, cafe/restaurant strip).
Upon entering our Superior room, my wife and I were impressed by the very large and comfortable bed, the nice bathroom and the balcony overlooking the Fremantle foreshore. Unfortunately, that is all that was good about this place.
The first major rip-off of our stay was the lack of free parking for guests. With no other place to park we were slugged $25 per day for valet parking. This and the unreasonable $30 per day internet charge seem a bit steep for an alleged 4 star hotel.
The biggest issue we faced was the complete lack of sound proofing in the rooms. This was amply demonstrated on the Friday night when we could here every single drunk person who happened to walk down the street (and there were a lot!). Come on guys, sound proof the windows!! At least this was better than the other people who we travelled with who awoke to a fight between two men at 3am.
The next night was even worse. There was a wedding reception in the hotel and we just happened to have the room next to it! If having the loud music stop you trying to get to sleep was bad, having the drunken guests congregate a few feet outside your door and talking was worse. To add insult to injury, having the night staff clean the reception room with vacuums and shouting at 2 am was the icing on the cake. This level of noise is unbecoming a hotel that claims to be a 4 star hotel, particularly when we did not even have the cheapest possible room but the next level up!!
The final straw was our last night when my wife and I got stuck in the elevator. After pressing the emergency contact button and getting a recorded message "...your call has been noted" I finally forced open the doors and we climbed out. When I reported this to the duty staff, their indifference was strangely infuriating.
In summary, if you are travelling to Fremantle and want to be located near all the good bits, do not mind having no sleep and do not have a car or laptop, then this might be the place for you! Otherwise please do yourself a favour and find somewhere else. We will be doing that the next time we are in Fremantle!!

Hostal Bambu: Hostal Bambu
Nicely decorated backpacker hostal with the usual facilities; laundry, cooking stoves, microwave oven and a huge dining area with a huge fridge for guests (be sure to label your items). The dorm I stayed in was messy (due to the habits of the other occupants, but then again, it's a dormitory after all) and the door could do with a bit of oil. Doesn't have a dedicated 24-hour check-in/out, so some arrangement would need to be made in advance.
The front of the hostal serves as a mini-pub of sorts. Gets really noisy on weekend nights, but thankfully the door seals out most of the noise to make sleep possible, except for the lightest of sleepers.

Esplanade Hotel Fremantle Perth: Fremantle's best romantic getaway
We had a fantastic time because the room and service was excellent. We enjoyed lazing by the pool and Fremantle has so much to see and do. It was also nice just being able to wander back to a nice hotel after enjoying a meal at one of the many nice restaurants available in Freo

I went backpacking with my mum, sister and her husband up the West coast from Perth to Broome. We bought a lonely planet WA before we went and used that for our reference for backpackers. Everyone we stayed in was excellent so I would recomend getting the lonely planet WA and all thats left to do is grab your bag and explore this excellent part of Australia!
