Coogee Sands is a great spot to stay at when in Sydney. It's right on the beach and close to many facilities and events. The staff are very nice and are a pleasure to deal with! The hotel is well furbished and the lobby is very nice. We highly recommend this hotel when in Sydney also due to the easy...

Stayed for one night to help a sick family member in hospital. Close proximity to POWH. Reception staff friendly and helpful. I was upgraded to a partial ocean view room which had view of wedding cake island. Lovely clean room and decor, comfy bed and pillows. Nice cool aircon. Very close to the beach. Well appointed mini bar and snacks....

Great place to stay to the East of Sydney. We had a bright studio room looking good over Coogee Beach with a lovely terrace. Room serviced daily and communal areas kept spotlessly clean. Free parking but slightly dodgy free Wi-Fi. Only downside is late noise coming from the Pavilion next door. But trade that for convenience of a good place...

Yes it's a little bit dated but the room was very clean, with comfy beds and lovely linen. From the arrival to departure the staff were super polite and helpful. There were cleaners polishing the front doors and lifts frequently, very impressed. On arrival the air conditioner seemed to be dripping. One call to the front desk and it was...

The only thing good about this hotel is the location, nothing else. The walls are paper thin, you can hear the other guests watching tv, taking a bath or even peeing! We saw several crickets in the rooms and two huge coackroaches! Charging like a 5 star hotel but being worst than a hostel!

My wife and I stayed at Coogee Sands in late January and we're delighted by the location, the room and the front desk staff. The location is fabulous. It's on the beach and within easy walking distance of all the local restaurants and night spots. Our room was comfortable and well equipped as was the bathroom. The front desk staff...

Hotel was very clean and comfortable. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Location is perfect for a beach getaway and trip to Sydney. Very accessible to the city by public transport or taxi. Great choice of restaurants and cafes in Coogee. Look forward to going back.

I just wanted to thank the staff for their care and outstanding service during our recent stay. I was travelling with my 88 year old mother who has extremely limited mobility. The staff went out of their way to accommodate her needs including finding me a park right next to the entrance to decrease her travelling distance to the lift....

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.

Staying in Coogee

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
