“Great spot, great hotel”
Reviewed 4 July 2014

Stayed 2 nights 1st & 2nd July for business trip to Sydney. I must say this hotel could not be in a better location, great views, close to fantastic restaurant's and the beach. Room was spacious, clean and tidy. Great TV as well. Arrived before standard 2pm check in and was no problem staff could not have been more helpful. Would definitely recommend Crowne Plaza Coogee and look forward to my next stay. Make sure you get a room with beach view.

Room Tip: Room with a beach view.

We had a lovely stay here a few months ago. The rooms are tastefully appointed, the view of the beach is just lovely, the meal at the restaurant the night before was delicious and the breakfast buffet excellent. We enjoyed our short stay.

Room Tip: Just ask for a room with a nice view of the beach and not a wall.

Thank you for your recent stay at Crowne Plaza Coogee Beach. I am glad you have enjoyed your stay with us. We have had some really nice winter weather and our Ocean View rooms offer a beautiful view over Coogee and our beaches.

Well located to Golf courses and the beach and an easy bus trip into the city.

Courteous staff and on site parking made the stay very enjoyable
The restaurant meal was good and reasonable value. The pool looks good although the weather was too cold to use it

Room Tip: We were on the 7th floor, good views

My wife and I booked into this hotel, a few weeks prior to our stay. We had to drop our son off at the airport on the 25 June for a school trip to China, and as we were flying out to Thailand the next day wanted to stay close to the airport. Despite the fact that we arrived early at the hotel, and were hoping to leave our bags, the Gentleman at the front counter, found us a room and checked us in early,(7am), which we greatly appreciated. We stayed in a room overlooking the side street, and the room was clean and well presented. We had a lovely day exploring the surrounds of Coogee, and a nice nights sleep. early checkout the next morning was a breeze and the same friendly faces were on hand to bid us farewell. Thanks for a pleasant stay, we have stayed at this hotel twice before, but many years between visits.

We stayed 2 nights and ended up with booked standard room first night and upgrade to ocean view on 2nd night. Both rooms were comfortable and spacious. Upgraded as tv wouldn't work on morning of aus v chile World Cup game. Thanks to technician Richard for securing upgrade. By 2nd half we were back in our new room and able to cheer and moan without clueless dining guests peering on as I watched from the lobby. Ocean view was spectacular if you can pay the premium as was hearing the waves at night. Hotel in great location for beach, coastal walks and direct public transport to Moore park, city or circular quay. Lovely cafes and restaurants in area. We got takeaway breakie at square peg just around corner and had it in our room. Cheaper than in house option. Wifi in room $9 / 2hr or free Internet access for 60min in business centre, with printer for boarding passes or road directions etc. Reception staff excellent and accommodating. Pricey, including $25/day car parking, but reasonable for Sydney given what's on offer.

On arrival when we attempted to check in only to be told that the package we were sold was not what was listed on our booking, I rang the hotel directly 1 week prior to our arrival to book the package we were sold was a ocean view family room with breakfast & parking included for our 2 night stay. When we checked in we were told that we were quoted a room only rate, if we wanted breakfast & parking would cost us over $200 more than the quoted & booked rate.After a heated discussion this was rectified to match our original booking, so problem solved. We then went to our OCEAN VIEW ROOM which was really facing the village with views to the ocean only visible from the balcony not from inside the room, again I was told that we would have full ocean views from our room. So back to reception, after another discussion we were moved to another room with ocean views, which are great. Just one more thing maybe crowne plaza could invest in some clock radios for their rooms as our room was lacking this, just a small issue but annoying just the same. For a 4.5 star rated hotel maybe things could be a bit nicer compared to other properties we have stayed in recently. The location of this hotel is wonderful but for our first visit has left us a little disappointed.

Room Tip: Just make sure you get a conformation in writing after booking directly with hotel.

Walk in booking so had to pay full price .... The fact that I stayed here once several years ago did not help get a break in the price!
But it is so good to have a nice hotel so close to the beach, go for a swim late at night or early morning (Before driving to airport for overseas flight).
And There are some nice local places to eat nearby too.
The hotel is typical for its class..... Nice large room ...comfy bed ... Quiet, etc....
Note. Parking is extra .... It seems the more expensive the hotel.. The more one is charged for extras.
