Staff at front desk were helpful and friendly. For a busy and premier hotel in the region, perhaps they should have had an additional member of staff as both on check in and check out I had to wait for more than 5 minutes. On arrival -we arrived way before check in time; the staff had a "green room" where...

Even if you are away on business staying by the beach can add a positive twist to what can be " just another hotel room" Located pretty much on the beach It's very easy to take an evening stroll or a morning jog. Breakfast is very good and we even ate lunch there as part of our conference. That was...

I enjoyed my stay at Crowne Plaza Coogee Beach: Their staff was friendly and helpful, and they gave me an upgrade to a room with the view towards the beach and ocean. The room and the equipment was fine, and the breakfast buffet included some healthy options. The location of the hotel being a few metres away from the beach...

Second visit, in 10 years, to the Crowne for a conference. A comfortable hotel with good facilities for a smaller conference. A few breakout rooms, good staff, service and amenities. Coogee beach is a short walk away but incredibly popular with the locals.

This is not the best hotel in Sydney but if you look at the location then that adds considerably to it's appeal. Coogee beach has lovely golden sand and clean water and it is patrolled (surf life savers). There are some nice walks along the coast, restaurants and shopping. The hotel is what you would expect from a Crown Plaza...

Location. Comfort. Quality. Close to beach. Close to pubs and restaurants. Close to bus for travel into Sydney. Large modern clean quiet rooms. Friendly staff. Really good buffet breakfast. We stay here the last few days of each Australia holiday as a treat for ourselves.

This hotel has an excellent location, close to beautiful Coogee Beach, and a short walk to all the amenities of Coogee Bay Road. Rooms were well appointed and staff were attentive (except for the concierge who was rather rude). My only disappointment is that a circular pool next to the swimming pool was not a heated jacuzzi- fixing this little...

CROWNE PLAZA HOTEL COOGEE BEACH is the perfect hotel to stay when visiting customers in Sydney. It's 30-45 minutes taxi drive away from the city centre. The staff of the hotel are most friendly and helpful. My room was overlooking the sea with a nice balkony where you can sit and enjoy watching people surf and sailing yaughts come by
