We booked 2 rooms at the Coogee Bay hotel for a Saturday night. One room was for my husband & I with his 2 daughters and the other room was for 2 friends of ours (Married couple). When we arrived the gentlemen on reception was very confusing and stated he had mixed our rooms up. He had sent our friends... More

From the website the hotel looked really well situated and next to the beach at Coogee. The first thing you notice about Coogee is that it all looks really run down -this apparently equates to "boutique chic" in Australia but I just say needs a lick of paint! The hotel staff were excellent and the best part of our stay... More

The Coogee Bay Hotel is situated at the very center and beating heart of Coogee Bay. Step out of the hotel's garden terrace 50 metres and cross the main road and hey presto, Coogee Beach. The beach itself not only rivals its 'big sister' - Bondi - but in my opinion betters it, what a gem ! As for the... More

The perfect location, opposite Coogee Beach and fabulous restaurants nearby. Hotel staff are welcoming and helpful. We were concerned that the noise of the bar might be too disturbing, however our room was located away from the bar and we slept comfortably. A complimentary Breakfast was near the sea. A thoroughly delightful experience for country folk.

This hotel was recommended to me for a overnight business stay whilst working in Sydney. I booked the hotel over the internet directly through the hotel web site. It was exactly the same price there as it was on any of the other booking sites like Agoda and Wotif etc. I booked a room in the Boutique Hotel with District... More

Great position to get about Coogee & opposite the beach. We found the room adequate, great views, quite typical, basic motel room, open slider to the beach on third floor. Good for a sunrise view & air flow. We found staff ok, informed us of gym passes (didn't inform us we'd be paying for them & not complimentary), complimentary breakfasts,... More

We had a spa room in the fourth floor. Lovely view, room spacious and clean. Internet charge unexpected. We have stayed in other hotels and motels whilst travelling through Australia and have not been charged. The staff were not friendly or helpful. We had to drag information out of them. Complimentary breakfast was just drinks and cereal, not much choice.... More

We stayed for four nights and were very happy with the "boutique " part of the hotel. We had one night in a "pub" room which was ok... The bed was not that good and the room a little tired. The service was excellent and the area was vibrant and busy.

We stayed in the boutique part of the hotel at the rear of the property. 4th floor, wonderful view of the beach, good sized room. a range of cafes and restaurants a few metres away. We loved the beer garden - good food and many different seating areas, including non-smoking. The only noise was from the big air-con units on... More

Heavily priced vouchers for wireless internet access in a hotel room that is priced at a basis rate of 210 dollars per night? Seriously? Well, in that case, I will no longer comment on any other feature of this hotel. Charmingly, the page that allows one to use these heavily priced vouchers suggests that “please untick the box if you... More
