No complaints. Quick checkin, friendly staff, free parking(!), awesome location. Rooms are fine, clean and equipped. Bed was comfy and big. There was a kitchenette but we didn't bother using it. Would happily stay again.

We stayed for 4 nights and found the location superb. Metres from popular Coogee beach which is both clean and patrolled by lifeguards. Great walking paths along the coastal area too. Staff were nice and helpful. We stayed in the deluxe courtyard room. The room was clean in general and enough space needed for a cosie stay. The bed was...

The location of this hotel is fantastic, but it is a no frills, basic hotel. For the amount we paid, and Sydney is very expensive, we were happy enough with it, but it is by no means a luxury hotel. The 20 metre walk to the beach was terrific!

I was there for one night during the week. The staff were professional and friendly. The room was as clean as you can expect any property that resides by the sea salt. LoL. I love this place, and it gives the Crown a run for its overpriced rooms!. Oh don't forget the Dolphin Pavilion next door. Awesome pizzas, beer and...

We have chosen this place about 6 times when we go to Sculptures by the Sea. One of the reasons is that we need to leave the car somewhere, and here they have a secure carpark and there is no fee. It's also easy to get express buses into the city for business purposes. The room has always been clean...

You are paying for the location. We arrived to two cockroaches running through the kitchenette. They came back a few times; we named one Craig. The bed was SUPER uncomfortable and we had a terrible night sleep. This was not helped by the tic tic tic tic tic tic tic tic of the air conditioner. So painful to try to...

Have been visiting Coogee Sands for many years and with the perfect location right by the beach it's a great value option for accommodation. The rooms are always clean with happy staff at reception, upgrade to a room with a balcony to enjoy the view and local scene.

Staying in Coogee

Neighbourhood Profile
Coogee
Very accessible by public transport, Coogee is the smaller, friendlier, more intimate version of Bondi Beach. Coogee is the only beach in the Eastern suburbs that does not have big waves, making it an excellent family beach. The Coogee Bay Hotel, located right across the beach, has one of the biggest beer gardens in Australia and plenty of entertainment every night of the week. Be on the lookout for celebrity footballers! A little further south is Wylie’s Baths, offering sweeping 180 degree views over the Pacific Ocean, and it is perfect for a swim or a few laps. Plenty of dining choices surround the beach, including the famous fish and chips.
