Staff very helpful. Calm and welcoming atmosphere. Ceiling fans were provided and there was access to communal balcony for fresh coastal breeze. Bus stops near by and short walk to Randwick shopping centre. Close to Coogee beach, for patrolled swimming. However, the small bar fridge was overflowing and defrosting in the kitchenette.

For what I paid and convenience to destination it was ok. The check in staff need to learn about customer service and talking to customer even if it’s just a polite smile and mindless how are you etc. no directions apart from you are on this floor. Towels and other dirty linen sitting on the floor outside the rooms rubbish on the floors. It was basic accomodation bed and bathroom so suited my purpose for a one night stay. If I was staying longer would go elsewhere.

If you’re looking for good accommodation for a good price, then this is the place. The rooms are not luxury but are clean and reasonably comfortable. My overall stay was disappointing, the shower broke and it took 3 days for somebody to come and fix the 5 minute job! But other than the shower, the stay was good.

The hotel staff was very unhelpful and rude and the shared kitchen was terrible and no access via evaluator from car park to your room to take stuff.

Basic student accommodation, reflected in the room price. Booked and paid for six nights but on arrival and booking in was told I would have to find accommodation for the last two of the six nights, as the venue only had accommodation for me for four nights.
