Now called the Coogee Bay Boutique Hotel I always stay here when in Sydney. About 10 minutes from the airport and has all the facilities you could want on your doorstep. The Hotel is on the quiet side of the Coogee Bay Hotel so Friday night revelries won't intrude. No kitchen or laundry facilities are included but a laundrette is around the corner and the dining options on Googee Bay Road mean you wouldn't want to stay in anyway. Part of a larger complex which does include a beachfront bar there is also pub accommodation.
All sorts of dining options are within a 5 Minute walk, options include Thai, pub grub, Fish and Chips, Italian, etc. Maloneys Grocers are over the road for all kinds of different foods, and the beach is a 2 minute walk away.
Head north at the beach and Bondi is a brisk 1 hour walk away along a purpose built path with sensational views out over the Tasman.

Stayed at the Coogee Bay for a week. Great location, but that's about where the positives stop.
Rooms in the pub wing are tired. Bathroom water temperature varied when in the shower, changing from too hot to very cold without even touching the taps.
Have to walk through the pub to get to the rooms, and then climb the stairs.

Will stay elsewhere next time I head to sydney for work.

Stayed: January 2015

Conscierge at front desk appeared to have little knowledge of rooms.we had booked with friends who had 4 family members in their party. We were given their room despite us querying configurations upon our arrival.
Upon representing at the front desk after unpacking our case and having a drink on the balcony, finally they ascertained that yes, we werehg in the wrong room.so we packed up and moved, to a small smelly room over the pub, no view, no balcony, no safe, no mini bar (which the Conscierge had swiped our credit card to the value of $100 in case we used it).
So, 3rd trip back to front desk which is located in a separate building.to advise them of the sickening odour and also have our room rate changed.as we had been charged for the larger room, with a view, balcony, safe, you get the picture.
The smell was so bad we felt ill. We were told that unfortunately all other rooms were fully booked.
On the plus side, bed was comfortable and the room was quiet.if the odour can be rectified then it would be reasonable value for money.
The room mixup causing several visits back to the front desk and relocating to a room some
distance away (with luggage)could also of been avoided had the conscierge of listened to us upon our initial presentation to desk)

We stayed in the pub style ocean view room and had a fantastic time. The room was very spacious, clean and the beds were very comfy. Our room opened up to a balcony with beautiful views of Coogee bay - we spent many an hour enjoying the view with a cold drink! The pub rooms are above the beer garden so the noise was pretty loud all night long, but that didn't bother us much - this place is best if you're in a partying mood though. If u want a quiet location, choose somewhere else! We loved it!

Coogee bay hotel
We booked on line claiming its a 4 star hotel this it's not, they have two blocks one above a bar area the other by the main entrance.
The first room we took was above the bar, the aroma of style beer and urine filled the lobby on onto the room, which was filthy.
The view from the window was of a banner, you could not actually see out of the windows.
Later that evening the room shook to the base of the band, overall I think a back packers type place.

The second trip we paid to upgrade to the 4 star side wow the room was clean, and staff friendly

Breakfast not much if your a guest you are very much second class. The staff tucked into bacon and eggs while the guest where given just DIY toast and cold coffee. My wife requested a got coffee where she was growled at by the lady serving the hot drinks to staff " hotel guests drinks are over there " As she pointed to a cold coffee jug .

Later we tried to buy a beer from the bar where we had to Que. 3 deep in the night club, no guest bars, Internet in the room is Aussy 8-50 per hour wow !!!
Would I stay here again a big No
Would I recommend it again No
Was it value for money No

Three No's don't do it !
