“Just love staying here”
Reviewed 14 May 2014

Dont tell anyone but the rooms on the 6th floor are just great - refurbished, great views, kitchen with fridge and microwave, crockery and cutlery letting you be self sufficient. My third visit and the staff are so welcoming and friendly. It makes such a difference when travelling alone. Just stayed 8 days and enjoyed it very much.

So much nicer to stay by the beach than in the city - only 45 mins to get to the city so no excuse for staying in a tower block when you can overlook the ocean.

Very useful to have a laundry where you can wash and dry your clothes. Really quiet at night.

We stayed here during the Christmas season of 2012, booking in for the 1 bedroom terrace. Overall we were impressed by the helpful and friendly manner of the staff at reception.
The terrace had great views of the beach from the window, but the balcony on the side unfortunately didnt have the same bonus. The rooms within the terrace were pleasant.
A real plus was the access to the roof top, which boasted some splendid views, and the fact that it was on the roof gave it a real sense of openness and air.

Clean comfortable accommodation on the beach.
Big comfortable bed and clean interiors.
Bathroom is in need of renovation but clean with
plenty of hot water. Rooms can be a little noisy if the
doors to the terrace are left open. Very quiet at night.

We stayed only for 3 nights at the Coogee Sands whilst in Sydney for the MLB baseball but wish it could have been longer!

From my first inquiry until our departure, the staff were helpful and courteous with a good knowledge of the local area as well as how best to get around on the buses. Our room was up on the 3rd floor with a balcony view overlooking the park which was wonderful. The room itself was clean and comfortable with a good sized bathroom and a functional kitchen area which was good for us as we bought our breakfast/lunch supplies at the local supermarket so we cater for ourselves for those meals. The main bed was large and comfortable & our 17yr old was happy on the pull-out double sofa bed which had been made up for him.

Overall, a great stay in a great hotel in a great location, thanks for having us, we hope to be back very soon :-)

Room Tip: As we were there on the weekend, there was a little noise from the nearby hotel (no fault of the Coo...

Staff is very friendly. Aa a lone traveler this trip I was ok with the sparse accommodations, but if I was with my wife I would have stayed elsewhere. Handy to the beach (as are several other properties), but it is spartan, internet sporadic and not a type of room you look forward to coming back to. If you are just looking for a hotel to park your bags and take a shower it is fine. Anything else, go down the road to the Coogee Beach, Dive, etc....
If you are the kind of person that likes a balcony with a view, not the right place.

Room Tip: I was in the back. not good.....,but the real view is on the beach.

Stayed for a couple of nights in February and was looking forward to something a bit away from the city.

The location right next to the beach is fantastic, Coogee is lovely. Unless you're not planning to be in your room it's probably alright. I was given a room down the back and it felt very claustrophobic with a very ugly outlook. I would think that only room towards the front or on the top floor would get a view of something other than the surrounding buildings.

The room was clean, the staff friendly and the free parking was good to have. The rooftop area is really nice as well.

To sum it up, the room was just average and a bit tired, it's mainly the location that is the plus. The price is a bit more than I would have expected for what you got.

Room Tip: Try to get a room towards the front or on top. I'm guessing those ones cost more though.

The rooms have been refurbished and are quite comfortable. The corridor on our floor had faded and stained carpets, the skirting boards were old and damaged and at times the corridor smelt foul. That was a pity, as the rooms themselves were modern and comfortable. The room was supposedly an apartment, however, the only thing different from a normal motel room was a sink and a microwave. There was no table to eat at, no toaster (they had been removed due to number of smoke alarms set off) and no cooking elements. Even though we didn't have a room with a balcony, we could see the sea from our room. It was lovely to have windows that opened so that we could smell the sea breeze. The view of the beach from the sundeck on the roof is breathtaking.
The staff were helpful, location was perfect and it was nice to have car-parking.
In this day and age, to have to pay for wi-fi is not acceptable. It should be part of the service.
