Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Edgy2 Great Location
This hotel is in an ideal location for both a beach holiday and venturing into the wonderful city of Sydney. The trip to Sydney is about 30 minutes on the bus and well worth the trip. The beach in our opinion is far better than the more commercially renowned Bondi, however the coastal walk to Bondi is a must for any visitor.

Our family enjoyed our New Years Eve experience at the Crowne Plaza. The views of the fireworks was wonderful ,and the interconnecting room made it easy for us all to be together.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Hils2329 Great service and staff
Service and staff were brilliant. The room was immaculate and tastefully decorated but had little atmosphere. The bed was large and comfortable but we had problems sleeping - maybe just a strange bed. The tariff was a little expensive but all in all worth it. The prices in the mini bar were very expensive.

We had a great stay. Only negatives were that it was pricey and we requested to stay in a king bed and this was unavailable when we checked in.

Great location, excellent and very friendly front desk staff. The room itself was very clean and had a very nice ocean view with balcony. It's very high on my list when coming back to Sydney.

Great location right on the water. Pool fantastic. Rooms are well appointed and clean. Comfortable all round. Only criticism is the gym consisted of a small room with one bike one elliptical machine and a weights machine. Would certainly stay again.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Filip9 Great location, clean hotel, terrible swimming pool
Rooms: small but comfortable.
Bathroom: small but clean, combined shower/bath
Breakfast: ok, standard fare with below average egg benedict
Swimming pool and spa: terrible, small old pool and spa was freezing (22c)
Location: great, next to Coogee beach.
There are no great resort hotels in Sydney so I guess this is as good as it gets.

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.

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.
