wonderful location right on Coogee

wonderful location right on Coogee Beach with beautiful views right outside the door. Walk to the beach and the rocky headland. Lots of great restaurants just up the street. Staff were extremely friendly and helpful . I found twin beds too soft , otherwise I would highly recommend

basics w/more service & great location

Location is very good, right across the parking lot from the beach. (Any indication - a Crowne type hotel is about 200m away & this one is closer to the beach than that one). Also, down the street (meaning VERY short walk) from shops & food. Next door to another Hotel that has a nightclub/bar/restaurant & also down the street from two similar ones. This proximity can mean loud music on Fri & Sat nights, but otherwise quiet. Hotel has agreement with a few shops along the walk (imagine it as 'along the boardwalk') where you can charge the food to the room & pay at the hotel. Customer service is pretty good. The hotel is small so the front desk people will remember you & provide minimal concierge service if requested (they can arrange taxi, recommend where to eat, arrange & book trips). We had a few issues (2 'sea roaches' as I call them [large brown roach like bugs that aren't scared of the light, don't move fast & can also be found in the ocean] were found in our room (one each on two different days) and they just cleaned our room extra good (didn't offer to switch us). Courtyard room is on ground level which means the discourteous people upstairs can spit on you if they're not cognizant that there are people below them. I called the hotel immediately after booking to ensure I got a courtyard through the entire stay [& could stay in the same room] (I booked 2 separate trips dates meeting in the middle 1/2 courtyard & half 'regular'), the manager on duty at the time looked it up in the system, said that would be doable & that we'd pay on check in. During my stay I had to They didn't offer any concessions for the inconvenience other than keeping me in the courtyard room as long as possible before moving. Room appointments for studio rooms are average at best - blow dryer in bathroom, iron in living area. Kitchen includes microwave, fridge. TV doesn't have a DVD player & has about 19 channels of cable. Price is pretty high considering how 'basic' the hotel is, but everything is priced high in the area, so I gave value an 'average' rating. I wouldn't discourage anyone from staying here, but would also weigh my options.

Money-saving tip: Not Applicable

Out on town, most places charge a 2% service fee for using your credit card (or just plain don't accept credit cards) - take out cash in advance. Also, 'take-away' food costs less than food served to you.

Average accommodation

The location drives the price for this property. It ia a very average place to stay, nothing special. The staff however were very friendly, helpful and upbeat. The parking is also a huge advantage being directly opposite the beach and any parking in this area (in summer/sunny days) is very hard to find.

Beautiful Location

I thought the place was great. I found a shuttle from the airport to drop me off right on the doorstep. Room was decent sized with a nice bathroom as well. I did the Coastal Beaches walk from Coogee to Bondi which was spectacular! Bus ride was about 20ish minutes to the Circular Quay.

Disappointed

As I was visiting someone living in Coogee, the location was convenient. Upon arrival we were told that the lift was being replaced and we would have to walk up and down the stairs the entire week - had us originally on the 4th floor, but upon complaining they relocated us to the 2nd level, but close to the elevator shaft. Had there been ANY communication before our getting there, we would have picked one of the other hotels in the area. Then the workers started very loud banging daily at around 7-7:30 am - spoke with the GM Tracy Whitelaw after a number of days of this annoying wake up call, and was promised that they would delay the workers start time - took another day till they delayed till 8:30ish - Tracy also stated she had a meeting with the owner and offered a $100 refund on the over $1000US paid. Sent her 3-4 emails after many weeks passed with no return communication or the promised refund. They have shown a lack of professionalism and honesty, so I would strongly recommend one finding another place to stay in the area ...
