I stayed at the OBH for two nights in May 07. Had a great stay, you can't beat the location - it is literally across the road from the gorgeous Cottesloe beach.
I stayed in a deluxe room, which technically had ocean views (if you stick your head out the window). The windows were quite dirty from the salty spray. The room was a decent size and the bathroom was great. Everything was really clean and tidy, but the tv reception was terrible! There is a movie channel where they play different DVDs at various times which was good.
I was charged for a bottle of wine I didn't drink, but on checking my receipt when I arrived home and calling them about it the charges were returned to my credit card. I did feel a bit weird about it though.
The staff were really helpful with organising tours to Rottnest Island at late notice, and with anything I wanted to know. They were all very friendly and professional. I loved the beach, it was lovely for a walk at any time of day.
The OBH has a bus stop out the front that will take you to the markets, plenty of cafe's and restaurants nearby (I found I really liked the Tropicana and ate all my meals there, it's just really chilled out and they had lovely food).
I found the room to not be very soundproof, which didn't particularly bother me but if you're a light sleeper it may be an issue.
