Reviewed November 13, 2012

Coogee is a friendly place that travels to its own time affected more by the weather (it's a tide thing) than the executive pitch in the City twenty minutes away. The human tide varies greatly as well depending on football encampments or other such events. But all that aside people are friendly and the staff at the Medina are too. My wife and I have stayed a few times over the years, and as we tend to book late we have been dissapointed a couple of times and stayed in a couple of other places around the little Bay. We continue to come back.
We have been coming mostly as a family, booking two room suites. Each has varied and each has had its better and so-so points. The good being the well appointed kitchen and the two bathrooms and good space for four (and even five). The good being that there is every convenience within a minute of the front door. And we use the car park - its great.
The beach is also a great meeting place - there are BBQs so we have on two occassions bought sufficient for a simple repast at the shop across from the front door and cooked on the beach BBQs. The last time we catered a party of 20 family and friends, and it was easy.
We have undertaken the walk to Bondi as well a couple of times - It's a must do.
The units are not readily little child friendly but we make do - we remove the caustic from under the sink and laundry to a higher cupboard - we supply a few toys - we turn the TVs off at the wall (turns off the blue light) - a bit of "first impression" cleaning damage to the paintwork which we hope is fixed next time - we hit the beach quickly.
And then there is the Coogee Cheer. This will affect everyone differently. On Friday and Saturday nights the younger ones hit the Coogee Bay Hotel - at closing (around 3) they sing and ply their way home up Coogee Bay Road. They are back packers and others having a good time. We have done it too. It always wakes us - we smile and roll over back to sleep.
We'll be back again soon.

Room Tip: If you think that the Friday and Saturday Coogee Cheer will be an annoyance ask for a room away from...

Dear David S,

Many thanks for taking the time to provide us with your feedback. The team and I are delighted to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us. As you know we are more than happy to allocate a room at the back of the building; however it is quite rare that our guests are disturbed by the Coogee Cheer as we are so far away from Coogee Bay Hotel.
We look forward to seeing you again in the near future.

Kind regards,

Jessica Daly

We had a two bedroom apartment,the room was clean,spacious and overall well maintained.
Staff were very friendly and helpful.
Would definitely stay again.

Stayed here for a night before flying out on holidays. We had a studio room which was fine but smelt a bit odd. The bed was comfortable and everything was clean and it was quiet. The best thing,about this place is the proximity to the shops and beach. Plenty of places to choose from dinner. I would stay again because I like the location and everything you need is either in provided in your room to enable you to self cater or you can just go down to the shops and cafes for lots of choices for food.

Dear Gundagirl,

The team and I are delighted to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us but we are a little bit puzzled as to your comments that it smelt a bit odd. We wish that you would have reported this to us while here so that we could have moved you to another room as well as investigated why. Please don’t hesitate to contact me directly through the hotel if you wish to discuss this further.

Thank you for proving us with you feedback and we look forward to welcome you back in the near future.

Dear Kazpotato78,

Many thanks for providing us with your feedback. The team and I are pleased that you enjoyed your stay with us. From your feedback we understand that you were staying in a studio apartment and should you require a larger apartment we would suggest choosing a 1 bedroom apartment next time as it will provide you will a complete kitchen as well as a separate lounge and seating area and a laundry.

Thank you for proving us with you feedback and we look forward to welcome you back in the near future.

Stayed here (2nd time), for work rather than pleasure, in a studio apartment with kitchenette. The furnishings and fittings were good and the place was spotlessly clean. Staff were efficient without being particularly welcoming. The a/c worked efficiently and was quiet. Had I not being travelling alone, the space this room offered would have been barely comfortable. There are some great eateries nearby and it is a 5 minute walk the the lovely Coogee beach.
I have two quibbles - one minor - the $15 overnight car park fee, which is just price-gouging and one more serious, which would deter me from selecting this establishment, if I had the choice. There can be intrusive noise from adjacent rooms - when I arrived there were loud voices in the next room and I could, regrettably, hear each word. Sound insulation is inadequate.

Room Tip: Ask, in advance, for a room away from street noise. Say you have heard that inter-room sound deaden...

Dear Christopher B,

The team at Medina Executive Coogee thank you for providing us with your feedback and we are pleased that you liked the room and our new air conditioners.
We are somewhat puzzled as to you hearing the guests in the next room as the building is built to the standard of and has the insulation as if they were freestanding apartment units. We wish that you would have let reception know so that we could have asked the guests next door to quiet down.
We also do our best to allocate rooms as per requests if we know what they are before arrival and we would be more than happy to allocate a room away from the street for your future stays.
Please also note that there is free off the street parking available and that the $15 parking fee is for our secure underground parking.

Thank you for providing you feedback and we look forward welcoming you in the near future.

Many thanks,

Have now stayed twice at these apartments. 1st time in a two bedroom which was good size with two bathrooms which was great. Room was starting to look a little tired however but was clean. Second time was in a studio room. Good balcony to enjoy the sun. Staff were excellent in responding to requests for a quieter room and have always been pleasent to deal with.
Location is great in Coogee, handy to restaurants and supermarket is across street.
Would happily book here again in the future.

My husband and I stayed in a studio room for one night as we had a function to attend near by. Our room was spotlessly clean with updated decor and furnishings and looked just like the official hotel photos. It was at the rear of the complex so was very quiet with no street noise.

Check in was fast and friendly and the on-site parking ($15 a night) was convenient for us.

This hotel does not have water views, but is a short walk to the beach, shops, cafes and restaurants.

Room Tip: Rooms away from Coogee Bay Rd are quieter.
