With the hotel overlooking the renowned Coogee beach, its vIews were fantastic. The room standard was superb & very well appointed. The cuisine in the restaurant was excellent. Staff were very friendly & most obliging & helpful. The hotel has good car parking facilities. All in all, it's a very comfortable & enjoyable hotel.

We stayed again at this hotel, this time for a week and were not disappointed. It is a very friendly hotel, all of the staff are great. We stayed on a B&B basis. The breakfast was very good, on all but one day when they were overwhelmed by everyone coming at once. We had a large ocean front room which... More

Coogee Beach is a very nice relaxing place less than half an hour from Sydney CBD. The hotel overlooks the beach, the service is generally good, the rooms are nice, the pool is fine but they used to have a jacuzzi and now they don't. Why they don't have one any more I don't know but it does make a... More
