We stayed in one of the Pub Style rooms and it was very nice. We had a great view of the beach. The outdoor pub was very crowded at night but we did not notice the noise from our room. Coogee is a reasonably lively place during the season. Sydney is reached easily from Coogee by bus.

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

Good Morning, Thank you for your feedback. We apologise for the fire alarm activating on the morning of your stay. By law it is illegal for us to turn off a fire alarm. The hotel must wait until the fire brigade arrives, they then assess the situation and only then will they deactivate the alarm. The budget pub style accommodation... 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 :(

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.
