A comfortable hotel right on the beach at Coogee, so some distance from the city although transport into the city and elsewhere is easy. The staff are friendly and it is a great place just to relax.

Bit expensive considering there

Bit expensive considering there was absolutely no view, except for the wall of the building nect door. For the price would have at least expected a bit of a view considering it was very close to the beach.

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.

very close to the beach and clean rooms

Stayed here during a 2 night stop over in Sydney while on the way back to NZ from being overseas, chose it because it was close to the beach and in a good area. The staff were friendly when i checked in and the car parking was free which made a nice difference from elsewhere in Sydney. The room, bathroom and kitchen areas were all clean and well appointed, good stock in the minibar too. The bed and pillows were comfortable which made for a good sleep, as well as it not being very noisy outside which is good because it is so close to the beach and exercise/playground areas.

Gotta get back

As a very late notice booking (funeral to attend) we couldn't have wished for more. We will make a point of returning asap to spend some quality time here. The beach-side location, close to the city and our need to be near Randwick worked out just fine. Thanks again for your assistance.

Great beach location

Stayed here previously, convenient for local amenities and great proximity to beach and coastal path to Bondi. Great for beach holidays and still easy access to downtown Sydney.

Friendly and fantastic location

We really enjoyed our time here Lovely position near the beach and cafes. Also very handy to buses. We visited our uni students at UNSW and the buses leave a few meters from the hotel- if you aren't taking advantage of the free parking provided at the hotel. We uses buses to go to the footy at Moore park. V straight forward and can buy bus tickets next door. Rooms clean and airy and staff very friendly. A nice touch was the twinings early grey t bags in he room.
