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.

I had a lengthy stay and loved the location just a couple of metres away from the beach, I have stayed at Coogee Sands before and find the views from the view and bbq deck on the 6th floor very amazing. The room I was staying in was very clean and serviced everyday. The frontdesk staff were extremly friendly and... More

The hotel is located at the beach with private and public transport within walking distance. Free parking is a rarity and is a much appreciated feature of the hotel. As it was a special occasion for us we received a bottle of champagne. The reception staff are very efficient and willing to assist us with information. We did suggest that... More

Stayed two nights before heading home from our five week journey. This location is truly right across from the beautiful beach. Very lovely view from our third floor unit. Nice hotel amenities such as washer/dryer, free and secured underground parking, lovely deck on the top floor and a friendly staff. The two cons would be our unit wasn't as clean... More

We found this place by accident (referral from another hotel) and lived it. Located more or less on the beach at Coogee it's a great place to stay. An easy 20-30 minute bus ride into town where you can enjoy all that the inner city offers - and then come back to the haven that is Coogee. Great cafe next... More

The location is two steps from the beachfront, and handy to cafes and great coastal walks with amazing scenery. We enjoyed our stay, our second, very relaxing. Beach towels are available. Rooms are serviced daily, late afternoon. We had an ocean view, can choose city or ocean views.

Lovely location steps from the beach and right next door to popular Coogee Pavilion. The hotel itself is pretty nondescript, but solid. Room is reasonable size, a bit larger than standard and had a very nice balcony area with outdoor seating. Very pleasant to come back and sit there as a family with takeout! Also, the coast right there is... More

The room smelled like mound. Toilet old and falling apart. Super noisy nightclub downstairs cannot sleep. Front office staff were cold tho polite. This can pass as a hostel, but definitely not a 4 star hotel.

Dear Tinyank, Thank you for taking the time to share feedback regarding your most recent stay with us.

Room is spacious, but very flimsy front door, so can hear all the noise as people walk past. Next door is a large complex with very noisy music during weekend till early morning hours. I was there for a conference, so needed my sleep. Otherwise nice spacious room and very clean. The bed was very comfortable with good pillows.

“Ask for a room away from the front of the building if you want quiet stay. On the other hand if you want a view of the beach life, the hotel front is the only place to stay.”
