We have stayed in both the standard room and the ocean view room at the Swiss grand hotel and found both to be excellent. The ocean view room is well worth paying the extra dollars for as the view looks directly over Bondi beach and the room has a balcony too. Although the standard room also has a side-on view of the beach.
The pool on the roof of the hotel is a standard rectangular pool and there is also an outdoor jacuzzi. We really enjoyed sitting in the jacuzzi looking out towards the sea.
The breakfast buffet was very nice and caters for asian tastes also. If you want to have breakfast in your room, however, you will have to pay for it, regardless of whether you paid for breakfast in your accommodation price already or not!
We really enjoyed our winter stay in the Swiss Grand Hotel but we were left with a sour taste in our mouth at the end due to the unprofessional staff member who checked us out on our last day. The first problem arose when he tried to charge us for a $15 in-room movie that we never watched. We had started the movie in our room by accident one day but the receptionist at the time told us that we wouldn't be charged, so we were surprised to see it on the bill at the end and even more surprised to find that such a big hotel would make such a fuss over $15.
The next problem during check-out was that we were overcharged for our room. The price we were being asked to pay was not the price we had been told on check-in! Again, a big fuss was made by the staff before we were allowed to pay the correct price.
These problems at the check-out desk changed our opinion of what had been a great holiday and would lead me to question whether I would stay here again.
