Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Deborah123 Best views, ambiance and friendly service
I love staying at the Coogee Crowne Plaza. The staff remember my name, are friendly, welcoming and efficient.
The rooms have superb views of the beach and there's nothing better than coming back from a day of hard slog and sitting on the balcony listening to the sound of the ocean and watching the glisten on the sea.
The rooms are comfortable. The beds are consistently great to sleep in and the morning start with a stroll or jog along the beach is a wonderful way to begin the day.
I also really like the restaurant easterly view in the morning as the sun rises above the beach and recent air conditioning mean it's possible to stay and watch the beach even when the sun is up and warm.
One thing I'd like to see is a better gym - with free weights to do some personal fitness and strength work. A small thing in the scheme of things.
I highly recommend this hotel.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SF2013 Beautiful view
I arrived an hour and a half early (2 pm check in time) but the lady at the reception was very helpful and checked me in. Her attitude was very friendly which gave me a very positive first impression of your hotel. It was good to be able to walk out of the room to the balcony to enjoy the sea breez.The view of Coogee beach from the room is magnificent.
The bed was very comfortable.
I found the size of the bathroom, slightly smaller than the usual 5 star hotel but was clean.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by mikeHgy68 shabby
I found the rooms to be small and the decor dated and shabby. This maybe due to the proximity to the ocean but the windows in our room were badly screwed closed and just did not fit the price-tag for the night.
Also the receptionists were not particularly helpful compared with our stay in other Sydney hotels.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by JLe27 Unhappy about room
I booked to stay here for a night last week, when making my reservation over the phone I was advised I was Boole for a standard room with king bed. Upon arrival I checked in as per normal, and instead I was given what I would call a room for guest who have a disability. The room had a double bed which was very uncomfortable for 2 adults, the bathroom was catered for a disabled person. At checkin I was not advised that I was given this room, I did not confirm at check in what type of room it was as I expected the standard room and because it was Crowne Plaza I expected goo service and can't go wrong with my room. I was shocked to be given this room and paid over $200 for it. I did not even stay the whole night and so I checked out around 8pm due to uncomfortability.

My most recent visit to Crowne Plaza Coogee was an absolute delight. The concierge who was on duty during my stay was exceptional. She was friendly, professional and had extensive knowledge about the area and surrounds, thus providing me with both corporate and personal recommendations and information throughout my stay. The service was exceptional and I am looking forward to my next visit.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Infusionsoft Great place for business seminar or leisure
Our company recently hosted a business seminar at this hotel, and we were very impressed with the experience. The staff was very professional, courteous, and responded very quickly whenever we had any questions or issues.
The only issues we encountered were with the internet service, and whenever we had issues, the staff was very quick to remedy them.
The hotel is walking distance to the beach, and a ton of local shops and restaurants. It was a great location, with minimal street-traffic noise (we didn't hear any from our room at night.)
The guests (70+) were all very impressed with the venue, the food and the service. We had several guests stay at another hotel, and remark that they wish they had stayed here instead! Additionally, the concierge was accommodating to those guests, storing their luggage during the last day of the seminar without issue.
The quality of the breakfast and lunches was good. Breakfast was included in our room rate- however if purchased separately was $34 (it was not $34 good). The hotel has a juicer, and several types of fresh juice were available every morning, in addition to custom orders (omelets, pancakes, coffees etc.). The buffet-style lunches worked well with our crowd, as we had a few Gluten free and Dairy free guests- the lunch buffet included options for both, in addition to vegetarian.
The hotel provides a business center for printing boarding passes, business work etc. It was a nice amenity, however it seemed like the computers (2) were utilizing dial up internet... it was VERY slow.
On several occasions our group wanted to take advantage of the pool/hot tub, however these closed at 9PM, which was somewhat disappointing.
The rooms were very cleanly, with nice quality linens, pillows and furniture.
The furniture in the hotel lobby was extremely comfortable. Several of our guests joked that they would like to take the couches/chairs home!
Aside from the initial issues we encountered with the internet for our event, everything went very smoothly. Our group is looking into the possibility of hosting 2 additional events in Sydney/Australia in 2014, and if we do follow through on those, we would definitely be interested in hosting them at this hotel.
We are a US based company, and planning a seminar/week long event sight unseen is somewhat difficult. This hotel exceed our expectations, and the staff was incredible. I would highly recommend the Crowne Plaze Coogee Beach to anyone looking for leisure or business travel accommodations.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Stecar Fantastic place to go and just relax
We have spent many nights at this Crowne Plaza Coogee and we have never been dissappointed. We had a daughter at UNSW and we find that it is good value for money in the area and you feel safe at all times. There are a vatiety of food options in the area to suit the most fussy of appitites. Truly recommend to take the experience and sit back and watch the waves roll in

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by GeoffinPerth Lovely location and superb breakfast
I stay here almost every time I'm in Sydney. The highlight (for me# is the breakfast - not only is it a beautiful location, overlooking the beach, very light & sunny, etc., but you can make your OWN fresh juices with a press of a button. So every morning I had fresh carrot / apple / ginger / beetroot juices #easy as can be), followed by fresh omelette, while reading the paper and watching the waves...
Perfect start to a day in Sydney!

We love Coogee we have stayed there before and will do again. Unfortuneately we were in a room next to a family with a young child and were waken very early each morning to a screaming child. Also management charged 2 credit cards both my wifes and mine, the 50.75 fee which is now waiting to be reversed.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 2Friendz Tall ships with ocean view
From the reception desk to very helpful cleaning staff our stay at Coogee was one of the best of Crowne Plaza chain. Easy access to restaurants, beaches. pool and walkways. Our trip coincided with the lead up to Fleet review and our sight of tall ships at breakfast on our first morning a thrill. Our rooms looked over pool and ocean on 4th floor. Restaurant food ok but my main course was too salty- entree was very tasty. Staff compensated me for main meal which was appreciated.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Business41 Disappointing
The room was very unclean. I had to call room service and ask them to clean the closet which they did but they had to use three cleaning cloths and some fairly heavy duty liquids to get the muck off the top of the shelf where I wanted to put some shirts. The bathroom floor was also very dirty and obviously hadn't had a good wash for ages. The room was OK, and the view great, but this is a very expensive hotel for what you get, and I was expecting a much nicer, and cleaner room.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Pete846 BIRTHDAY SURPRISE
I chose the Crowne Plaza at Coogee to celebrate our sister's 60th birthday in order to surprise her. The Coogee area is very special to the family. I was recognised as a Priority Privilege member. We were given an upgrade of the ocean view room we chose and this was appreciated and added to the element of surprise for the Birthday Girl.
Reception staff were very welcoming and helpful and they did everything to make our stay there a wonderful experience for my self and my siblings. We dined in the Bluesalt Restaurant on the Friday evening. Food was well presented and very tasty, however the service was a little slow, not that we were in a rush, we weren't. We had time to catch up and celebrate.
I've stayed at a number of IHG properties both at home and overseas in recent times and have always enjoyed the experience.

thankyou for hosting the Community Options Conference at your venue. I cannot fault the service - either for the conference or for my personal room experience.
Food was fabulous, and available without huge queues, loved all the healthy veggie options.
Cocktail party was well supported by both bar & food service.
Room was quiet, bed was perfect!
Surf noises in the backgorund were very calming and peaceful.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by mela1 A Very Pleasant Stay
We recently stayed at Crown Plaza Coogee for convenience as we were attending a party nearby. The location is terrific and the hotel staff were very friendly, helpful and welcoming at all times during our stay. I would definately recommend staying there but be wary of "room information" when booking as the operator did not know the "village view rooms" do not have balconies and said they would do their best to give us a room with a balcony. When I rung to make another query 1 week prior to our stay, I asked if they had us in a balcony room only to be told the village view rooms do not have balconies but I could upgrade to a pool view room at an additional cost. We found this unsatisfactorary and misleading.

My wife and I have stayed at the Crowne Plaza Coogee on four occasions this year. We were pleasantly surprised on this occasion to receive an unexpected room upgrade to a king bed , and a room with an ocean view - thank you. The service at the hotel was of the usual excellent standard. From the warm welcome we received at reception, to the service when ordering a meal in the room , in every respect the hotel's service to us, their customers, was of the highest standard. Based on our previous experiences at this hotel, we have had no reservations about recommending the Coogee Crowne Plaza to other people. This experience only confirms our previous view of this hotel- a great accommodation choice in Sydney.

Usually we look forward to returning home for the comfort of our own bed. In this case I missed the comfort of the bed & pillows at the Crowne Plaza! Now that's a first!!
The cleaners were very friendly & our stay was very enjoyable. I will definitely return.
