Coogee Bay Hotel Pub-Style
Ranked #6 of 6 Hotels in Coogee
Reviewed 22 August 2013 via mobile

Coogee bay hotel
We booked on line claiming its a 4 star hotel this it's not, they have two blocks one above a bar area the other by the main entrance.
The first room we took was above the bar, the aroma of style beer and urine filled the lobby on onto the room, which was filthy.
The view from the window was of a banner, you could not actually see out of the windows.
Later that evening the room shook to the base of the band, overall I think a back packers type place.

The second trip we paid to upgrade to the 4 star side wow the room was clean, and staff friendly

Breakfast not much if your a guest you are very much second class. The staff tucked into bacon and eggs while the guest where given just DIY toast and cold coffee. My wife requested a got coffee where she was growled at by the lady serving the hot drinks to staff " hotel guests drinks are over there " As she pointed to a cold coffee jug .

Later we tried to buy a beer from the bar where we had to Que. 3 deep in the night club, no guest bars, Internet in the room is Aussy 8-50 per hour wow !!!
Would I stay here again a big No
Would I recommend it again No
Was it value for money No

Three No's don't do it !

My wife and i stayed at Coogee bay hotel (pub style accommodation) having read reviews and on a previous visit to Coogee tho stayed at different hotel we already had a good idea what it would be like ie a very popular/noisy busy place. We decided to go for a 2nd floor superior room
hoping the noise from bars etc wouldn't be to loud,what a pleasant surprise, we had some noise but only like a loud murmur no problem sleeping,and the accom was good very nice, pleasant helpful staff,if we need somewhere to stay in Coogee on our next visit to Oz would definitely stay at same hotel as long as 2nd floor room available

Room Tip: second floor rooms are best over looking coogee beach shared balcony with other rooms but balcony go...

We travelled to Coogee from interstate and booked this place online. It all felt like a legit hotel, but soon discovered that we were staying in the Pub. "Walk through the bottle-shop to your room, sir" was a bit of a surprise, but found the room was ok. The music played late and the trucks on the road started early so not the place to stay if you need a solid 8 hours, but perfect if you've got a gut full of beer and keen for an early surf.
