I have discovered something frustrating about Wotif.com. If you know approximately where you want to stay, and exactly when, you can't easily search for that. You can get a list of accommodation around that area, available or not, and you can get a list of accommodation including availability, but what you can't get is a search including only what's available in a certain region on a certain date. The map includes everything and the list doesn't tell you where things are like the map does. As soon as you zoom in or out on the map, the speech bubble pointing to your selection disappears, so you can't see where it is in relation to other places unless you keep your eyes glued on it.

PS - If the short list function affected the map too, that would work.
PPS - It still wouldn't be perfect, though.
