Stayed here for two nights in January. Hotel is very clean and all the staff were friendly. I was on floor 3 and didn't have a beach view but the room was lovely. Had large double bed, flat screen tv, clean spacious bathroom and a balcony. The room also has a mini bar which is restocked daily if you used... More

Was on 2nd floor, view average but can see the ocean. Layout of room great and bathroom with shower and bath! :) Room was clean and tidy, nice decor. Aircon wasn't working but with supplied fan I was comfortable. The Hotel also gave me complimentary hot breakfast due to no aircon. Hotel is on flight path to Sydney airport so... More

I love this hotel for EVERYTHING. The food, the staff and the decor was all fabulous to me. I would recommend any one to stay at this hotel overlooking the ocean. The bed and balcony was exactly in front of the ocean and I went to sleep hearing the ocean crash into rocks at night. I stayed for 3 weeks😜

This is a perfectly good hotel. It won't blow your socks off in any particular area - but the staff are very friendly, the rooms are clean and well appointed, the breakfast range is limited but entirely edible, and the room rates are reasonable. If you have a reason to stay in Coogee, I'd recommend it.

I ordered that was described in the menu: "home smoked" beef brisket sandwich with mushroom, gruyer, onion, bbq sauce on an italian ciobatta roll. What I got was a white toast with bbq sauce and very few pieces of beef that tasted like it came from a can. I showed the sandwich to the "chef" and showed him that there... More

Came here with some mates a couple of weeks back and had a blast - friendly staff and lots of activity. something for everyone really. Good music. We were there on a Saturday night and as the afternoon wore on it got busier and busier - obviously the locals love it!

Went here on New Year's Day, it was busy and we were told a 40 minute wait which was fine. We wait 40 minutes only to have the driest seafood plate you could imagine. $48 for a piece of salmon, 3 prawns, 3 mussels and way too much over cooked fish and chips! Do not waste your money, the food... More

We booked this hotel on line. When we told the cab driver at Sydney airport where we wanted to go, he was very dubious. We told him the name again and he delivered us to the hotel though not the boutique hotel which is a short walk around the block. Yes, we explained Vicar St but that was obviously overridden...

My first job in Sydney was at this joint - some 30 years ago, as entertainment manager - and I'm not sure if I'm amused or bemused by how little it's changed. We ate at the brasserie and opted to eat in the beer-garden, oops, it was so filthy we moved back inside to the brasserie, oops... Our table in... More
