We stayed at the Crown Plaza for a conference. We booked an Ocean View room and it was worth every cent. We had a balcony, the weather was perfect and even though it is a busy place we didn't hear the traffic. Just a very short walk to the beach or the shopping centre. The breakfast was great with lots... More

Went for dinner with my daughter and had the seafood platter. I would not be in a rush to go back. Staff were lovley but the food really ruined it for them. Very dissapointed as we dont go out for dinner very much, lots of other places to have a great meal in the area .

Its location on Coogee Beach is for sure the major asset of this hotel. Rooms are clean and comfortable; quite in line with expectations for this price. Breakfast is however far too expensive for what is being offered (about twice the price I paid in other hotels for a similar buffet). Yet in the neighbourhood are other excellent locations for...

We booked a king ocean view room with balcony for four nights R&R. We were disappointed to find that the view was side-on to the ocean and the balcony was tiny so that if we both wanted to sit and admire the ocean one of us had to look at the other one's back, but our arrival was quite late...

We were given a gift voucher for High Tea here. Greeted by lovely staff and directed to a wonderful window seat overlooking beach. Offered tea of our choice, lovely. BUT we then waited 50mins for our finger food! Only one other table in room for High Tea also waiting! Eventually told by lovely but extremely overworked waitress that buffet for... More

This is my third time staying at Crowne Plaza Coogee Beach, and it was perfect once again. The staff at this hotel are particularly fantastic, with an eye for detail. We were upgraded to The Presidential Suite upon check-in which made for a perfect weekend. I usually book the Ocean View King Room as it offers the best view of... More

If you are looking at a hotel in Sydney, this would have to be the best hotel I have ever stayed in. The view is unbelievable, the staff are genuinely attentive, happy and very helpful.

Very tired, in need of full refurbishment, nice location but that's it. Service is perfunctory, furnishings are embarrassing, 1970s style, building is akin to an asylum. Only really a conference venue for attendees from interstate or overseas.

On arriving at the hotel the female who checked me in was very in sincere and felt false but perhaps I thought it was me just being over sensitive after a long flight. How wrong was I when I was told I had a poolside view room which was executive. It turned out to be a room on the 1st... More
