At the end of the Bondi to Congee Coastal Path Walk, we found the Congee Bay Hotel as recommended by the Lonely Planet. It was a great spot for a beer at the end of the 6 km hike; the bar area of the hotel looks out over the beach, the servers are friendly, and there is a good selection... More

We reserved a table for 20 in the hotel which I think was the worse thing we could have done. The noise in the hotel actually gave most of us a headache. The music was too loud we couldn't talk to the person sitting next to you. The meals were ok but I was shocked with the price of drinks.... More

A night in the bar and courtyard out front was great. The atnosphere was really good and everyone really friendly. Met lots of people. A hog dog stand that was brilliant. The beer selection was good and bar staff friendly.

Visited the sports bar whilst in on my honeymoon with my husband. We were staying up the road at the Crowne Plaza. Good value for drinks and friendly staff. We especially enjoyed the live entertainment.

The beer garden at the Coogee Bay Hotel is spacious and provides a wonderful open air setting with views out over the bay and beach. Plenty of open and covered tables to cater for everyone's needs, including nice booths for smokers. The atmosphere is vibrant and its a classic Sydney beer garden. A fabulous place for a drink, but leave... More

First came to the Coogee Bay Hotel Sports Bar 7 years. We though it was great. Visited twice on this trip. Air conditioning not working both times. Just one fan operating in bottom bar and the whole Sports Bar was very busy. Bar staff mentioned that it had not been working for over a month. They said the hotel manager... More

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.
