Sometimes it pays to book first.
We arrived in Perth around midnight, got a rental car and drove to-wards town looking for a room, with the time difference and nearly an 8hr flight we were very tired.
What I did not know was The Royal Show was on and school holidays and accomodation was full.
We found this hotel in the early hours of the morning and whatever the cost we would take it. NOT A GOOD START. The one negative I can remember that car parking was available behind the hotel, but it did not have a direct root, so we had to carry every bit of luggage down the stairs of the car park buiding to the hotel foyer.
