Reviewed December 19, 2012

The Medina Coogee is situated about 2 minutes walk away from Coogee beach. Very close to plenty of cafes and a supermarket across the road. The rooms were clean and spacious. There was a bit of noise from people talking in the street at night but it wasn't too bad. It was very comfortable. We didn't use the kitchen except for making cups of tea, but it seemed to be very well supplied with plates, cutlery, appliances etc. The staff were very helpful - especially Sarah - she was a star and very helpful and entertaining. I would be happy to stay here again. Some of my colleagues stayed at various B&Bs nearby and while they were cheaper per night, most were in cramped and noisy accommodation. It was lovely to come home at the end of the day and have a separate bedroom and living area to wander around.

Room Tip: There was a bit of street noise so maybe ask for a room away from the street if you are a light slee...

The Hotel is nice. The room are comfortable, clean and new. Not too big but not even excessively small. The major problem was noise. Our room was on the ground floor beside an hallway and these were people coming and going well past midnight. Some of them were really loud. The walls and doors seem to be paper thin and it was like having people in the room at 2am.

Service was very average. The rooms were quite comfortable but in our first room the TV did not work and had to be fixed, and the air con units all had a poor flow and did not get cold. I had to clean the filters which were very dirty which improved the air flow, but maintenance were unable to fix the problem with the compressors for the air con and we had to switch rooms as it was very hot. in our new room the iron was filthy and left marks on my partner's shirt. The TV remote worked for some things and not others. the air con worked in our new room for two nights and failed on the third. The indoor pool was nice enough. The inside corridors are a rabbit warren and it all looks the same. There is not enough signage inside to point guests in the right direction - I imagine it would not be easy to find your way out in the event of an emergency. Reasonably stocked minibar.

Stayed here for a girls night , towels were tatty & old (grey) . No bath mat in bathroom , cup marks on coffee table & floor had not been vacuumed . The worst bit was the bottom sheet in the main bedroom was so stained it was revolting , showed one of the staff , he agreed but nothing was done , so slept on top of the top sheet . Booked 2 rooms , requesting a roll away in second room , on check in when we asked about the rollaway were told we had to upgrade , now that I have read other reviews it seems to happen alot . Have stayed at other Medinas' & haven't had any problems . Medina Executive Coogee , you need to retrain house keeping & include parking in your tariff .

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,

For the price this was a good find.Great location with all cafes at your door step,a two min walk to the beach and Coogee Bay Hotel.
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.

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.

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