Stayed 4 nights over late January 2013 and was very impressed! It's very hard in Sydney to find a room that caters to a family with two young children, but Coogee Sands delivers. For under $200 a night we had a king size bed and our boys slept together in an ample sized pull out bed. The room was great and the feature for us was the large window which could be opened. The location is brilliant - 25 metres from the beach (check out the insane beach break body bash!!) and 150 metres from Coogee's main restaurant strip. A large park is situated straight out front of the hotel. The reception staff were very friendly and helpful, the place was very clean and well run.
Only two minor complaints - when the car park was full there was no sign indicating this and we had to back our 4WD out of this very tight area which was difficult to say the least, and the TVs in the room only allow a volume of 30, which while I can understand the rationale is quite conservative - if someone is having a shower or the window is opened you couldn't hear a thing, which was annoying especially when watching the Aussie Open. But overall this hotel is fantastic and if the prices remain reasonable we will most definitely be returning.
