We booked online last minute as we were going to a birthday party at the Oceans Bar and didn't want to drive home late. We arrived to find that the key machine was broken so the office manager had to let us in to the lift and into our room, but the room was nice and comfortable. We had worried... More

I really appreciated the elevator security that required you to swipe a room key before it would take me to my floor. The room had a beautiful view and was very clean. The bed was just firm enough and had plenty of pillows. The couch was very nice to relax on, but was at an awkward angle to the television.... More

Security are just rude greeting a customer what's that? When you walk into the main its easy to see why its empty. Its freezing the poor bar staff are in jumpers all the patrons are in the beer garden under the heaters, it is warmer outside than, pretty sure its meant to be warmer inside.

Entire body was covered in welts the size of 50c coins. Was then moved to another room however had to have all clothing dry cleaned and... More

There was a false fire alarm at 5 o'clock in the morning which lasts for like 25 mins. They only bother to shut it down after the third time we rang them. There's no one to help two young women to bring down 30kg luggage from the second floor of the hotel. Not to mention that there's no elevator. The... More

The room was big. The AC didn't work when we got there (winter) maybe it's just meant for cooling, didn't bother to get it fixed. The included breakfast is in the restaurant facing the ocean, which is very cold during the winter. It consist of toast and vegemite, I would suggest eating breakfast somewhere else. Internet - 10$/device/day :(

Additionally you can order classic pub food as room service. Breakfast is included as well which is helpful on the budget. It's got good access to public transport. In short, got to... More

The executive apartments are great, I stay often for work. The rooms are large and quite. The beach is a short walk away with heaps of good restaurants near by. I recommended you stay here as there is free parking, a good pub with good food at very unpublished like accommodation.

Without a doubt the best beer garden in Oz. Right across the road from"Coogee Beach" with plenty of birds in bikinis & a super atmosphere any day in the summer time. Rip in & enjoy cooking your own steak on the grill to boot!!
