stayed for a special celebration. Room had everything we needed. Off-street parking was a plus. Only thing missing was a bath, not that we wanted one but some do like a soak. Staff were very helpful, courteous and available. Hotel is easy to find and access

We stayed here 5 years ago and the rooms then were a little tired. Am now pleased to report they (or most of them) have been refurbished with new kitchenette (and microwave), new furniture, new bathroom fittings, and new air conditioner, etc. Our room looked crisp and fresh and had everything needed for a comfortable stay.

We stayed one night in July 2014. Best location in Coogee off the main street and right next to the beach with views from our 3rd floor balcony. Staff were very accommodating and late check out was great. Room comfortable and large. Secure off street parking really appreciated.

Great view of Coogee beach and far away enough not to be too loud but close enough to all the restaurants and entertainment venues . We had a room looking out over the beach which I highly recommend. The room was very accommodating for 2 people . The staff were very helpful
