“A nice short break!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2012

We booked the hotel directly and the staff were really helpul. We requested a room with a balcony but they were all booked but the staff member had made the extra effort to get us another room which was just as good. We arrived at the hotel just before checkin in time and had to park across the road in a public carpark. Cost approx $4.00 until our room and parking was available in the hotel. Be aware as the parking rangers were out and about booking people. Room was clean and tidy and they gave us a late check out by one hour. I would stay here again.

The hotel has everything you should expect. Good location to shops and transport in Coogee and the beach at your doorstep. The room was clean and tidy and looks like they've had a recent upgrade in the bathroom. Free parking is available which is a must in Coogee. Room had a small kitchenette with cutlery and crockery etc and a well stocked mini bar.

This apart-hotel is well placed by the beach in Coogee and a 20min bus ride to Sydney or taxi rank outside.
Clean comfortable room with settee, table and chairs.
The kitchen area is very well stocked, the only down side not able to have a toaster, however you can use the one in staff room.
The barbeque on the roof is a great idea and available to use anytime for free.
The staff are very helpful.
Free car park and laundry very useful
Only downside the walls are very thin so you can hear the other rooms

The position of the Hotel is great . The free parking was excellent. There is a taxi rank at the front door which suited us as we dont like driving around Sydney. There were lots of buses also available a short walk away as was lots of restaurants. There weather was perfect and we were able to see several whales broaching from the rooftop sundeck!

We have stayed at several places on Sydney's eastern beaches & this is one of the best value ones we have been in. We booked a room with a courtyard on the second floor. The room was very clean with lots of little touches that impressed. The staff were very helpful with all our requests. The location is very good being right on the beach with several eateries just around the corner. It was also very quiet when we were there. The secure parking is a big plus & it you need public transport, there is plenty just metres away. We would definitely stay here again.

I commend Coogee Sands Hotel as an excellent choice for travellers. The facilities were clean and attractive and the staff were welcoming, kind and helpful. The location of the hotel was an added bonus - it was delightful to be able to walk from the door to the beach, and to explore the many cafes within walking distance. The availability of undercover parking made transportation simple. I was very blessed, in particular, by the attitude and manner of staff at the hotel during my stay.

We stayed in room 320 situated on the third floor. The room was very clean and had a microwave/ small kitchenette, large room with king bed, a lounge, table and foxtel tv. Bathroom quite small however very clean and fine for a couple. The hotel is situated right on Coogee beach and although it is very busy at times at Coogee the rooms are very quiet. Staff were very friendly and another bonus parking was on site, secure and free. I would recommend this hotel to anyone looking to stay in the eastern suburbs on the beach at a reasonable price!!!!

Dear Sarah,

Thank you very much for your kind words following your recent stay with us. I was delighted to hear that you enjoyed your Coogee Sands experience and have forwarded your positive feedback on to our team.

I was pleased that you enjoyed the facilities and location of the hotel. Coogee is one of Sydney's most popular beaches and can get very busy, however due to our location and structure our hotel is relatively quiet and generally not affected by noise.

Thank you again for your positive feedback and I hope that we have the chance to welcome you back to the hotel in the near future.
