If you do the hop on hop off bus from Sydney to Bondi Beach then time it to get to Bondi Beach for lunch. Make your way along he main shopping parade and you will come to the Bondi Beach Hotel on the street corner. Nice seating outside plus reasonable menu and nice choice of beers. Definitely a place to... More

Went in here for a meal after spending the day on the beach. It's situated almost directly across the street from the Pavillion. They have weekday specials which are served at certain times and cost AUD 15. Included in this is steak and mash with your choice of sauce which is the one I opted for. It was a decent... More

Pub style food is always nothing spectacular however, this is Bondi. Ordered chicken parmigiana, came out cold and tasted like it was reheated. No chicken salt either! When we consider paying $21 for a parmigiana and what you get, bad value for money. Probably wouldn't come back here even if I were starving and about to die. Would prefer to... More

I made the big mistake of coming down to Bondi Beach on one of those really nice days, which means that the place is absolutely packed. I had been to this pub before and quite liked it, so the plan was to go back for a meal. Well that didn't end up happening namely because everybody else had the same... More

I originally booked a standard room without a sea view, then later changed this to a sea view room with a balcony via booking.com To be honest when we entered the room we were a little disappointed as due to the room being on the corner of the hotel, it was more of a city view than a sea view....

The reviews are pretty mixed for this hotel but when myself and my wife stayed here for 4 nights we felt it was a lovely stay. The room was clean and spacious with friendly housekeeping staff and the bathroom was large and spotless with a brilliant shower. The food in the restaurant/bar was very good and extremely cheap considering the... More

Situated across the road from the iconic Bondi Beach is the Bondi Hotel. We selected it for lunch for the location and the fact that there was a table free! The food is average and the drinks fairly standard prices. It is nothing special with the exception of the location. It is a good place to escape the sun, have... More

Great location, and that is all. Smelly hotel, outdated furniture, big bathroom with no hooks.Old building. Misleading description- state there is a balcony and there are shared balconies which are locked up early at night anyways.. DO not rely on WiFi working either. reception people are not there to check in and leave you waiting

Staying in Bondi Beach

Neighbourhood Profile
Bondi Beach
An iconic Australian suburb, Bondi Beach is famous for its fantastic beaches and views. Once the domain of backpackers, hundreds of tourists from all over the world descend en masse to Bondi in December ready to enjoy the "Aussie summer". Bondi Beach boasts impressive ocean views all along the many restaurants and bars on Campbell Parade. Wake up early and take a dip in the surf before walking the scenic stretch from Bondi to Coogee Beach. Stroll through the Saturday organic markets in North Bondi or grab some fish and chips and relax in the grassy area opposite the beach. For more upscale cuisine, head down to Hall Street where a range of new eateries have recently opened. Just make sure to save enough energy for the buzzing nightlife Bondi Beach has to offer.
