We have recently returned from Coogee and found it the Coogee Sands and ideal property for position, cleanliness, spacious rooms and facilities in the room, e.g microwave, crockery, etc. Our only problem was that a toaster was not provided and we had to go down to the ground floor kitchen to make our toast! The staff were very helpful and... More

We needed a place close to the city, a wedding and our son. Coogee is a great place with a relatively central location. I'll say here, I am a little biased after spending many years living on the eastern beaches, but Coogee Sands suited our needs perfectly. We booked a room with a courtyard and while there is no view... More

The Coogee Sands is very close to the beach foreshore. However most of the rooms look out onto brick walls or closed court yards. Since it is only a few steps to the foreshore itself this may not be a problem if you spend all day out having fun. You can pay extra for a room with a view. It... More

Located literally just metres from the beautiful Coogee Beach. You walk out the front door, turn left and in less than one minute you have sand between your toes. Walking distance to the famous Coogee Bay Hotel (with amazing beer garden) and many fabulous restaurants. A great coastal walk from Coogee to Bondi Beach starts right outside the hotel. at... More

Great spot, right on the beach, next to a great eating spot and the walks and areas around the beach are just beautiful. The room was a good size, was very neat and clean, had everything we needed and had a kitchen area and a fully stocked mimi bar. Bathroom was clean and functional. We had a balcony that looked...

We stayed overnight at this Hotel. The location is fabulous literally a two minute walk to the beach and right next door to the Coogee Pavillion. We were in town for a wedding but did the beach walk from Coogee almost to Maroubra in the morning. Rebecca on reception was great. The room was ready for us even though we... More

The best part is being on the beach. You step outside turn left walk 100 yards and you are on the beach. Turn right and you will find all the restaurants, bars, shops even other hotels. The hotel provides indoor parking, the ground floor garage (called first floor in the US) is the best. One floor up hard to turn,... More

We stayed with 2 other couples in a studio suite and was very impressed with the size of the room. Right next door is the Coogee Pavillion and the beach with the remaining restaurants and Coogee Bay Hotel only a short distance away.

Our family stayed at this hotel whilst we were in Sydney attending the football at Allianz stadium. This place has great friendly staff, the rooms are clean but the location is fantastic. Beach across the road great restaurants close walk and easy bus ride to Allianz Stadium would stay again.
