We arrived here on Christmas Eve, staying for four nights. Be sure to ask for a room on a high floor overlooking the ocean, as we did. There were three of us in this room, which was spacious enough, and the views from the balcony were fantastic. Seeing people celebrating Christmas on Coogee beach was something else! We had booked...

Stayed at the Crown Plaza on the last leg of our visit to Sydney for my Nephew's wedding.The hotel is in a great position by Coogee Beach and has some great views from the rooms across the beach. I recommend a high floor with the beach and pool view. Facilities were good and staff most helpful. Make sure you include...

Stayed with my wife during the Christmas/NYE period. The hotel is in a great location and the access to the beach is superb. Unfortunately it was a busy period and the staff were unable to cope. After we were originally placed in a twin room, I asked to be moved into a double room. The lady on reception made it...

Room wasn't ready at check in time - but we were given 2 complimentary drinks vouchers while we waited. However bar staff were slow and not friendly or welcoming.

Had an overnight stay between Christmas and New Year. Got a great rate, and was so impressed with the hotel. Right opposite beach and centrally located to shops and restaurants. Room was lovely and the staff welcoming and helpful. We were able to check out but still leave the car in the car park longer which is so helpful. If...

We stayed for four nights over Christmas and had a brilliant time. Although probably 20-30 years old the hotel has been kept up to date and has everything you would expect from a hotel in a well run multinational chain. Our ocean view was breathtaking. The decor is well maintained and contemporary and has what you expect. The staff are...

I stayed at the hotel for a conference earlier this year and can confirm this is a great place to stay if you are visiting Coogee or even Sydney.

I have stayed at this hotel on at least 4 occasions over the years. This was the first time that demand had required me to book a village facing room, rather than an ocean view room.

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.
