We booked the 3 bedroom apartment for just the one night in January. The lay out is fine but the place is really grubby and needs a good scrub. The table and floors were sticky and the windows were so dirty. So much potential but its time for a lick of paint and a good scrub.

We stayed 6 nights, the longer we stayed the more things we found wrong, there was an alive electrical wire running underneath the house( we got an electric shock when we had our showers), the beds were uncomfortable, the TV was too small and on an angle, the air-conditioner was old and loud, the toilet and shower dripped all night...

We spent the night there on the way up north. We got a 3br unit that was clearly run down but was clean and could hold the 4 of us comfortable. The little pool and playground will keep the young ones happy but don't count on it for 12+ kids. Restaurants are within 5-10 min drive and the ocean is... More

We stayed two nights for a family members wedding, found out we paid an extra $80 to book through a booking site it's apparently cheap booking direct. Even still not worth it, beds were horrible springs poking into you, TV was small, whole apartment was out dated, funny smells coming from toilet and bathroom, pay extra to stay somewhere better...

Tania and Kelly could not have been more friendly and helpful! Especially during the booking process. Rooms are spotless and spacious and fully equipped. Playground for kids. Private parking. Out of town but that suited us as we were passing through, not visiting Geraldton as a destination. Fast and accurate checkin and checkout process made the stay easy.

Ocean West Holiday Units are a good concept, but lacking in finesse. The units need modernising and updating to make them a more appealing option for travellers. The kitchen provided the basic equipment needed to prepare a meal. The bed in our unit was one of the hardest and most uncomfortable we have ever attempted to sleep in. The units... More

Motel units were minimal but pleasant with all the kitchen conveniences. Nice and clean and modern. Little privacy however due to windows onto public areas from both sides and no net curtains. Beach straight across the road was fantastic, though this can't be seen from the motel. One disappointment was no power to hot points, bedside lights, kettle or microwave... More

Stayed 3 nights. Liked friendliness of receptionist, closeness to the beach, peace and quiet. Self contained. Good fridge (clean and quiet), good oven and TV. Airconditioner/heater (wall reverse cycle type) made a noise like an old jet engine, drowning out the sound of TV or music. Fortunately the weather was mild so didn't really need it. The roller blind in... More

First step in the door, I thought wow this looks out dated. Then opened the noisy fridge to drop my food/drinks to see a extremely damaged seal. Couldnt get the TV to work for a good 10mins, remote was damaged from people smashing it on the table as the thing didnt seem to work. You had to hold it at... More
