Reviewed October 31, 2012

Great place to stay - waking to the sound of crashing waves - lovely walks along the coast - quick trip into the city - lovely cafes and restaurants within walking distance.
The Sculpture by the sea exhibition was on between Bondi and Tamarama beach - you can walk one way and catch the bus the other

Room Tip: ask for a seaside room

Dear Andrea T

Thank you for choosing to stay at Crowne Plaza Coogee Beach. We’re pleased to hear that you were able to enjoy ‘Sculpture By The Sea’; a yearly event right on our doorstep. The coastal walk is also a wonderful experience and can be enjoyed anytime of the year.

Thank you again for taking the time to post a review and we hope to see you again in Coogee.

Ok the position of this hotel would make it stand out even if it was below average but as its well above it is a perfect choice for any stay leisure or business.
We stayed on vacation and found the Crown Plaza Coogee Beach the ideal location for not only Coogee and Bondi beaches but also easy access to Sydney City center and Circular Quay with transport (bus) right outside the hotel.
Views from the room can only be described as stunning and together with very helpful staff this made for a very enjoyable 6 night stay.
Not the cheapest hotel in the area but they do have some very good packages, we had a good deal with a 5 night or more stay.

Dear ourgar

Thank you for reviewing Crowne Plaza Coogee Beach and most especially for acknowledging our fantastic beachside location that is close to the city yet still retaining a village feel. Right now we have a ‘Time For You’ package for couples and families to make the most of our great location throughout the Summer period.

Hope to see you again soon.

I've stayed at this hotel regularly over the past 12 months for business and it is certainly one of the best hotels in the Coogee Bay area. Very friendly service on arrival (always) and well appointed rooms with all the usual amenities you would expect. Great fo rany type of stay and great location for walks around the Coogee Bay area. Highly recommended.

Dear Prado123

Thank you for choosing to stay with us regularly over the past 12 months. We tend to be biased about how great Coogee is so it’s even better when acknowledged by others. At the moment we are experiencing warm days with many taking advantage of the coastal walks and beach.

We look forward to welcoming you back next time you visit Sydney.

We stayed here every tear for business conference. We always book them because of convenience, central location and service. Staff are polite, service is prompt and in room service is quick. Parking is easy, great location walk at the beach in the morning. Downside- the gym should be improved, very small and only 4machines?.

Stayed here for a long weekend. Is in a lovely spot, if you've been to Sydney lots & seen all the city sights then this is a perfect place for something different, like Broadbeach, Qld with cafes, boardwalk along beach front etc.

Our room was ok, just room for two double beds & a small bathroom, couldn't open the window to get fresh air & sea view only on the angle. If you like to be able to have a break between outings then make sure you book a room with a balcony so you have somewhere to sit & admire the sunrise & view, otherwise it is very claustrophobic.

Unfortunately, despite it being 33' the day we arrived, the pool was closed (for 3 weeks!) & there were no sun loungers on the outer pool deck, which would have been nice as it would have given us an alternative place to relax & enjoy the sun.

When we asked, they told us about a couple of shared balconies so check them out on floors 4, 5 & 6 - great places to get a view & some photos.

Didn't eat in the hotel as you can get a really lovely full breakfast from any one of a number of cafes 2 minutes away for much less & the restaurant was closed for a wedding one night & there are heaps of great places to eat in Coogee.

Would definitely recommend it if you want a different Sydney experience, you do have to bus or taxi to the city but check out HUGE shopping area at Bondi Junction.

Room Tip: Pay the extra and get a room with a sea view & a balcony, try & get higher up to be well abo...

Dear Like2Travel08

Thank you for taking the time to post a review after your recent stay. Please accept our apologies for the pool area being closed during your stay. Unfortunately we had to undertake emergency works however as of today the pool is thankfully operational again. I hope that you were instead able to take advantage of Coogee Beach which is right on our doorstep or Wylies Ocean Baths another great place to cool off and only a short walk from the hotel.

Thank you for recommending our ocean view rooms, all of which have balconies to take advantage of the great beachside location. We hope to have the opportunity to welcome you back again soon.

nice pool, disappointing gym, but the hotel provides complimentary passes to the best fitness centre in coogee.
probably just a bit too expensive

We stayed at the Crowne Plaza for three nights at the beginning of September. Could not fault the room and the views from the balcony were superb. Picture the scene; breakfast on the balcony, with sun rising over the bay to the sound of the waves gently lapping the shore - it really does not get much better. The added bonus was the friendliness and helpfulness of the staff - the only downside was in my opinion is the high charge for broadband in the room, though to be fair there is free Internet access in the business centre off the reception area.
