Proximity from NSWU none
Lovely old heritage building and period furniture added to the charm. Rooms were very clean with the added touch of small kitchen facilities.
cost and location parking
Ambience and location
Close proximity to shops, transport and Coogee Beach. Room size was small, no parking facilities and well over priced.
Quiet, relaxing, easy to deal with, comfortable
Location close to public transport to Bondi Junction shopping and a short ride, distance and time, to the airport.
The hotel receptionist I believe was called George went out of his way to help u's with a late check out and kept our bags safe as we were not flying until late that evening. He was exceptionally friendly and helpful and is a credit to the hotel.
Staff were very friendly and accomodating of late check out Taxi took 1 hour to arrive at hotel and found a stray hair in the bed
It was our honeymoon and it was close to our reception and it was in a classic style.
The venue was clean and easy to find, being within easy distance of cafe and bus routes.
It was quiet, most of the time (except for Sunday night, after league final and with public holiday Monday) and we enjoyed the location with the gardens, trees and variety of birds. The smell of the cigarette smoke came in through the open windows form the courtyard so you could smell it as soon as you came in the front door. Also, would have liked hooks or rails to hang damp towels on.
Quiet central location in Randwick.Close to beach,shops, restaurants.Good size room and lovely court yard.
Very close to university, very kind people. I booked a wrong room which was changed without extra fees. Uncomfotable bed. Very limited facilities.
Convenient location, nice suburb, easy parking. Hot water not quite hot enough
Nice, green neighborhood, fairly clean and spacey rooms. Helpful staff. Good value for money. Huge room and very tiny 10" or so TV, so if somebody is into TV would be an issue ;)
They were very friendly staff. no
Very clean and tidy... and it wasn't haunted.....
The room was spacious and clean, the en-suite was reasonable to good standard, the ambience of the hotel was like a high quality backpacker. The internet room description stated that a microwave oven was included. In fact the microwave was in a small kitchen type room up two flights of stairs!! In my view, this is a trade description abuse.
friendliness of manager and cleanliness of room would be nice to have disability ramp at front of building without having to enter by rear access- but also realize there may be some heritage restrictions in place to prevent this-otherwise great place.
Great hotel for a night or two, had fridge, kettle, toaster and sink in room. Fairly good value for money.
It is close to the Googee Beach and UNSW. The room is little bit small, but very comfortable and clean. The reception is very kind and helpful.
It was very convienient to what we had planned for the w/e. close to public transport, shops and the wonderful beaches. thank you room a bit small, but that was ok, we only needed it to sleep.
Room well equipt. Comfortable bed. Good shower. Close to local eateries and not too far to the beach. Public transport easily accessible. Lack of full length mirror in room
proximity to UNSW for meeting, relatively cheap, relatively quiet, helpful staff, comfortable bed, heritage value of building TV too small
Lodge is located close to shopping centre and cafes, so finding a place to eat at was no problem. Within walking distance of beach and easy to source local transport. Rooms on lower level was a bit small.
easy access to the city centre.
Location to the Sydney Children's Hospital and local eating places, very friendly and helpful staff member. Lack of parking - advertised there was parking - when there was only 2 spaces - Luckily we got one! The rooms weren't cleaned whilst there.
Location was good, a quick 15-20 minute bus ride into central Sydney I found Sydney rather expensive for accomodation, that is if you don't head for the hostels etc. At £62 per night in the shoulder season I wouldn't say this was value for money but in fact it is one of the cheaper hotels i came across in my searches.
the location was great - such a short walkf from Central Station. The place was nice and tidy and cosy and the staff at the bar were very friendly. one of the towels were soiled that was fiven to us as a new one.. and the surrounding pool area wasnt very clean. Also the treadmill at the gym wasnt working and there wasnt enough ventilation in the room.
the design of the rooms we booked online for 3 people for $239 and when we went to the counter she charged us $274est and didnt have a reason why.I feel like we were trying to be ripped off
staff were friendly, helpful. room was clean and tidy. close to central station so easy to get around. the pillows were abit on the hard side.. other than that was good.
Staff were friendly and knowledgable. Nothing.... Everything was to the standard we were expecting.
Easy to access with covered drive-in entry and valet parking. Friendly efficient staff. There was a discrepancy at checkout but this was rectified. The room booked sleeps 3 with the booking clearly stating the price is for 3. I was originally charged extra. They claimed that the on line site was misleading. While the 3rd bed was made up there was no extra towel,blanket or cutlery for the third person. Low level lighting with no makeup lighting. Would still stay there again.
Quite close to the airport Small room the fire alarm ringed at 5am
At least it is clean Too many Staff was rude and incompetent - gave me the wrong room number n key card A silly design in shower causes false fire alarm easily Bed is not fixed but on wheels Make sure you have the right rate as one for day and one for overnight
close to airport and very quite actually
It's very convenient to the Sydney airport; otherwise nothing too special. If you just want somewhere to stay before an early flight, it fits the bill, though staying near Central Station or Redfern would be almost as convenient. They really nickel-and-dime you: charging for wifi, for breakfast ($12 is way too much for what they provide, even in Sydney) and charging for a shuttle for the airport. I hate it when hotels do that.
Close to airport The room and bathroom needed a good cleaning. Room was minuscule , bed and pillow disappointing and hallway dark dingy and dirty. Glad I couldn't sleep and went to eat at mcdonalds.
Cheap tariff. Very comfortable bed. Easy to drive to from Canberra. Very handy to airport. Relatively easy access to bus service to City. Flexible about check-out time (11am was fine with them).
no coffee/tea facilities, no toiletries, very poor standard, very basic, not what was expected. Only good side was convenience to airport.
Very convenient to Airport we only stayed one night more than happy to stay again, compact room, helpful staff.
My room smelled, was tiny, and there was no privacy out my window which faced across the parking lot to a busy Krispy creme.
The Ibis Budget Hotel is close to the airport and there are a lot of fast food restaurants nearby. You can park in front of the hotel for 15$ per night. If you're taking a shower the whole floor of the bathroom gets wet, very inconvenient. There were a lot of ants in our room, but we got a new room with the same problem. I recommend to stay only one night if you really have to.
Convenience to SYD airport Walls too thin. Able to hear everyone else using their toilets all through the night.
Checking out! Room was small like a prison cell. Beds are metal framed. Bathroom is tiny. tv is very old and chained to the wall! There is no hair dryer, no iron (except in laundry room on ground floor), no toiletries, no kettle. Wifi is very expensive. Only rubbishy fast food outlets nearby. They charge a ridiculous $6 aud one way for shuttle bus - you can walk to the domestic terminal, it takes 5 minutes.
It has the perfect location, close to everything, we can even view a part of the Sydbey Opera house from our balcony. Everything you need is just a few minutes walk away. All in all it was great.
Quiet. Had a lanai. comfortable. Narrow halls and not a user friendly lift
good service and very friendly staff no
Very nice hotel, rooms were very nice. Friendly staff and very helpfull. I would certainly recommend this hotel. The second and third level have a pool area, this can be quite loud.
Mainly the location and the fact that there was parking eventhough it was a bit tight for medium size sedans and anythig bigger The meals were budget and reflected as much in the flavor
The reservation of priceline was not in the system in the hotel. Only after the good staff at the hotel we could get our room
Clean, quiet and safe (close to police station). Staff weren't very friendly. Do not refill soaps every day. Location is not good (about 15 minutes from the central station). Although it was our honeymoon we did not get even a congratulation card (and was suggested to purchase an upgrade in full price). Breakfast was very poor.
Location was great, hotel was clean, very nice room, better than I thought, I booked a twin but got 2 queen beds, was a beautiful room was next to the staff laundry or tea room or something which was very loud on sat morning
The proximity to all sydney has to offer. The staff were very helpful.
Nice setting and good for access to coastal walks and Sidney centre. Right next to bus route. Booked room with sea view. Did have a lovely sea view but our view on second floor was obscured by trees so would go for a higher floor if you pay the high tarrif for the view,and our immediate view was of public car park.
It is convenient and close to buses to get into the city and is very comfortable The shower is a bit antiquated and tired looking.
The location and price were excellent.I was pleased with the parking provided by the Hotel.
Location to university. Very honest staff after accidentally leaving my gold necklace in my room it was still there when I returned from the city
The atmosphere of good design coupled with the pleasant staff and the pets Nothig
personal service and attention No, it's fine
The friendliness of the afternoon/evening staff; the breakfast/dining area with communal table, choices of coffees and flexible access to breakfast/snacks, and daily papers; location so close to the beach with the sounds of the sea at night; spacious room & bathroom. Bedroom was a little dark, bed was quite hard- would be better with a mattress top added
Friendly Staff. Staff pets- dog and cat. Close to beach and restaurants.
Relaxing atmosphere and good hosts No
We loved the overall feel and vibe of the hotel. It was in between a traditional hotel experience and a bed and breakfast. There are 2 dogs roaming about, we had breakfast at a single table with other guests and each of the rooms was different and unique.
The excellent rooms and friendliness of the staff, it was like staying in a large friendly house.
The breakfast options where great :) Our rooms where a little nosiy but nothing too major
Mark and the young woman whose name I can't remember (started with a z I think) were so helpful and knowledgeable. The ambiance was great - very low key, funky decor - great. Loved George! 2Nd room small not enough light and the bathroom was too small
This is a very friendly and hospitable small hotel. We liked the pleasant and helpful approach of all the staff and we would definately stay there again. All together, a very enjoable and relaxed experience.
We arrived early due to our flights, and intended to just leave our bags until we could check in but they were able to check us in straight away. Staff were friendly and helpful. Location was great with the beach and great places to eat just around the corner.
Loved the location, loved you couldn't hear noise from pub, loved that my friends room was connected and that we could open our doors and share our space but could also be completely separated and lock our doors too. Love we were so close to the beach and a big choice of restaurants and still close to the city. Really nice standard of room. It met and was above my expectations for a 4 star hotel. no complaints at all!
Convenience of getting to Randwick Racecourse. Room service for dinner was very good. No problem getting a late checkout. We stayed in the boutique rooms which are at the back of the hotel and not affected by the noise of the hotel so much. Nothing really.
I am a regular visiror to the Coogee Bay Hotel & stay there for the location/beach & budget room in the Heritage Part
the big room & balcony
Staff communication was good. Great breakfast. N/A
The location was very good and breakfats excellent with attentive staff. I t was good to have an outside area The room (36) was too small
I really enjoyed the breakfast and breakfast room and the time to linger, the history of the place, the location and proximity to shops restaurants and the bus to the coast (Bondi), The key front dooer was appreciated and the homely feeling Room was very small, a table for the kettle would have been good rather than the floor (proximity to plug an issue) gap under door meant I was woken both days, no blind on window also meant woke with light. quilt was old and needed replacement but bed was very comfortable and nicely made. A little table in the ensuite for toiletry bag would be good rather than the floor. Only one coat hanger made it difficult to hang things.
Fantastic! A++ service, staff and facilities. Charming room, very cosy but fine for the two of us. Great character, highly recommended
I have significant dietary needs and the hotel staff looked after me very well. The room was nice - air conditioner was fantastic!! The location was great. It was a really positive stay and I would return Lugging a suitcase up stairs!!
city trip sightseeing and shopping The bathroom window was not closed properly.
Location is good, breakfast is good, but some items wasn't available at 8.30 already Bathroom is very ordinary, dosn't reflect the price which you pay for it.
service was the best i have ever had, the staff where very friendly and helped us with everything we wanted. no hot water in the bathroom sink
the staff were exceptional, breakfast very good, rooms cosy and comfortable. The location is excellent. n/a
the location, the atmosphere, the nice beds morning staff was a bit lazy
The proximity to transport was great.
convienience to everything restaurant & bar not open sun nights , little difficult with kids to find a place to eat & have a drink, other than chinese / macdonalds
The fact it was close to the city. The staff were great and the breakfast was great too.
Handy to railway station, markets, china town The floor was wet because people came in dripping from the rain outside, ramp was very slippery almost slid over.
The hotel was in a good location. I could walk to any attraction that I wanted or walk to the train station which was right across the street. The view from the roof-top pool was really amazing. I did not think it would be that good. The breakfast at the bar was above average; however, it was pricey. I liked the ambiance of the restaurant. You could sit and people watch. Overall, the hotel was average for the price. Their cleanliness was slightly above average. If you book this you will not be disappointed. I did not like the bathroom. They do not show a good picture of the bathroom for a good reason. The shower has a glass enclosure that runs only half the length of the shower. The floor of the shower is only recessed by no more than a 1/4 inch for the rest of the floor. So, what does mean? Water would go everywhere. The floor seemed to be continually wet. However, they would come in and clean it every morning. They had to or I would have been thoroughly annoyed.
New room was great Price for new year stay, on going renovation
The lovely big bed and the movies Sauna was not accessible
very convinient location front desk was under staffed during our stay. waited for 15 minutes to check-out
Being able to get around the city without to much hussle. Having coffee and something to eat without going to far away from the hotle. The one day of rain but it did not slow us down that much.
central location, free internet (3 hrs/day), clean modern rooms would have preferred wifi in rooms, only ethernet broadband available
Good location near central station and transport facilities, shops and bars.
Location in Potts Point close to the weekend market Its not really an apartment. Kitchen facilties rudimentary at best. Hotel room with a microwave would be a better discripition
We had a good time while staying at the hotel, it was close to the things we wished to see, very helpful staff pointed us in the right direction. A little dated in some areas.
The location was good and the views were superb. When booking a serviced apartment, I did expect a bit more than a normal hotel room. The only extra this 'apartment' had was a 3 foot long counter which they had the cheek to call a kitchen. There were a few kitchen appliances provided but space was so limited that we could only get one of them on the miniscule counter at a time! There was not even a proper armchair for my wife and myself.
The staff as usual were outstanding
Great location and being able to park the car no
The view was outstanding. The noise from the street was appalling and we hardly slept all night . We found that the advertisement as serviced apartment was misleading; it was nothing like an apartment. I note that renovations are proceeding ; which will improve the appearance. It looked tired and old.
staff was excellent
Very good client service from all staff on the desk, the cleaning staff and everyone involved with the hotel.
We found the apartment clean, well appointed and comfortable, and as advertised. The on site parking was a plus for us. The staff were extremely pleasant and helpful. No complaints except cost - but think we struck an expensive weekend.
Great walk into city
the location was great, close to everywhere, staff attentive, would recommend and stay there again myself no proper smoking area
