Disgraceful conduct.
Purchased something and then was flat out told that my purchase would not be honoured.

Went into the gym for a workout with prepaid visits in my account. Guy at the desk tells me they stopped offering that service but would make sure to honour my previous purchase of 4 remaining visits.

Couple days later I come back in and a different guy tells me my purchase has expired and that he can't honour it.
He says there's no record of what happened a few days ago but I can see on his monitor that it shows my visit 3 days ago.
He simply states that he's the GM and keeps repeating the same thing to me 5 times in hopes I give up on finding out what happened.

Someone behind me in queue shows up and ends up having the same problem as me so the gm shuffles me along with one complimentary workout and tells me that next time I have to pay.
Poor bloke behind me probably didnt even get that much.

The security guard called Pat is such a top bloke, Was very helpful and very professional at his job. Would highly recommend this venue. Place is very clean and hygienic. Other staff and managers are very welcoming.

Will be coming back next year sometime.!!!

Good vibe, great atmosphere, but bar tenders were slow and rude. Place can use better crew.

I used to be a regular as it is the closest place with a sauna. This despite the fact the whole sauna/indoor pool facility is far from being prime quality ( wood falling from the roof of the sauna, disconnected from the walls, broken showers, cockroaches in the relaxing area, tiles falling from the walls etc )

I never wanted to commit with an automatic bank transfer subscription therefore I used to pay for casual entrance ( for the not cheap price of $18.50 each ) or a 10 entrance pass which has increased considerably in the last 18 months ( from $100 to $130 to $150 ) . Then the 10 pass option has been canceled. The casual entrance has been pushed to $25.

Now I understand the need to make some profit out of it but this seems a bit exaggerated considering the discrepancy between the prices and the facilities offered.

I went to the quiz at Coogee Diggers on Thursday 8th February 2024 (my second visit) after having attended for the first time back on Thursday 2nd November 2023 (my first visit). On my first visit, me and a friend won the $250 pub quiz jackpot ($250 loaded onto the CD membership card for you to spend). Neither of us had been again and we decided to go back to spend our winnings.

We went to the bar and placed our food & drink order only to be told that there was a $0 balance on the card. We relayed back to the staff that we should have $250 and waited to speak to the manager. When she finally arrived (didn't catch name but she was short with long brown hair) we explained the situation, showed the photo of us on the 'Inquizition Magician' Facebook page to prove we had won it and asked where the winnings was. She rudely answers with 'so you're telling me you haven't been here since November'? ...it's not exactly my local or a must go to hotspot, so no I haven't. She says she needs to speak to Ian (who runs the quiz? No idea - this made no sense either given the quiz was hosted by an Irish woman on the day we were there and I doubt Ian would have a clue as to who we were) and comes back 20 minutes later saying she couldn't get through to Ian but as a gesture of goodwill she has loaded $125 onto the card. She explained that the card runs annually and all points expire at the end of the calendar year. We weren't told this at the time and relayed this back to which she responds we would have got an email. Checked inboxes, no email in inbox or spam folder. The membership card also has only the year '2024' stamped on it - no expiry or valid from date. We pointed this out to be met with silence.

Word of warning if you do go here - if there's an issue the manager is unhelpful and pretty rude, and you need to spend your winnings within the same year. Better still, go to a quiz elsewhere where you just get the money to spend wherever you like!

Food and drinks are pretty cheap, with big portion sizes so that's the only reason for it not being 1 star.

Gym has been done up (well mostly) but some machines need replacing. swimming pool is ok, pool area is ancient but still ok to swim in, it's more the changing rooms that are pretty horrific! Cobwebs and all bright green!

One massive annoyance, is staff never reply to emails, don't even bother sending one.

We come here every Thursday for trivia. Food is amazing quality and reasonable prices, especially with the membership. Only downside is I wish the gym wasn't so expensive / had the fitness passport!

Nice gym new equipment, they have used the area really well and some good thought has gone into the design. I understand if the gym is still under renovation, however the mens toilets in the pool area are disgusting. As soon as you walk into the room you can smell the urinals, I am not sure if they clean them or its the product they are using but I
do hope the bathroom issue is sorted soon.
Also they need an exit button for people who are only doing a one day session, the receptionist was closing the pool and three people couldn't get out past the gates because they didn't have members cards.

Gym equipment and area is average.

Like others have said there is next to zero fresh air circulation downstairs.

Management don't want to spend money on it hence the price. But working out in a sauna like environment isn't worth it even if it was free.

Such a shame because it could be 10x better with aircon or fresh air.

The Diggers Gym and Club is without question the best Gym in Coogee. The design and layout is totally next level, and it feels like a family rather than a cookie cutter, money making tie me in gym. Ahh yeah the Club has the best Tuesday night steak.. Crazy value.. not sure how they do it.

I am really disappointed with this gym. I joined several months ago and since then, there have been several issues. The first issue was with their payment system and inability to process my payments via a Savings account and then trying to charge me 'late payment' fees a number of times - to which I obviously disputed.

And secondly, despite being newly renovated, the downstairs area of the gym has very little to no natural air ventilation and NO aircon at all. The heat has been unbearable and it is also a serious health and safety issue. Despite a number of emails from myself and my partner, they have not responded or addressed the issue at all (with weeks between emails and follow ups). Honestly the worst customer service I've ever experience!

The gym facilities are great, couldn't recommend them more, the staff are generally very nice and professional also. But recently had a negative experience, I experienced an issue with my bank, not related to fund or by my own doing, when I approached the staff member to discuss they loudly and blankly accused me of not having the correct fund/ the issue was my doing!! In front of a gym full of members, after me stating it was an issue of not my own. This was a very negative situation, which was untrue. Very unprofessional. Considering changing gyms after this experience.

I'd just like to add Ive been with diggers nearly 3 years now, and this is the second time this has happened. 1.5 years ago my access card did not work (deactivated card in the end), and the staff member accused me of the same. I had to go to my online bank and prove it.

Unfortunate since all other experiences were very positive.

First time at the bistro last night and we were really disappointed by how dirty the place was. Our toddler was given a cup with lipstick still on it. The tables, cutlery and floor were all dirty too.
We ordered food and it the quality was really poor. The risotto had no taste and the tacos were stale. I don't write this to throw shade, but rather in the hope that a venue can achieve its potential to be great.

Diggers promised to finish the renovation of facilities shortly after sign up but this was not done for months. Equipment either in poor condition or not working. Staff rude, and hostile to members. No, or late, response to basic requests. Change rooms had really bad mould and lockers (meant for valuable) could be opened easily simply by pulling the door for 5 seconds. Really regret joining. Last straw was being

We held my daughters birthday party here and we are really happy with the way the manager Peter Gallagher handled the entire event. They were very accommodating with everything- such as letting us in early to set up the decorations etc. The food was also really good. The pricing was very reasonable. All the guests remarked on how well the function went. Highly recommend!

Doesn't matter how good the food or drink is and how polite the staff. The speakers BLARE in every room including outside. They ripped my eardrums apart. Couldn't there be one spot without any speakers? Great venue otherwise.

Whoops. Edit. The staff were kind enough to turn the outdoor speakers off. Good food too.

Surprisingly good bistro for a RSL club. There were plenty of gluten free and vegetarian options and it was pretty tasty. The staff are great too.

The pool and gym are getting a revamp currently and they'll be adding a plunge pool in addition to the existing very hot steam and sauna rooms.

The diggers is a great place to meet your friends for a bev and Thursday night trivia. They have relatively reasonable rates for the gym and classes etc. It lost 2 stars because the meals are expensive (but they are HUGE). I also really think it's a shame they got rid of the pinball machines in the bunker.

Coogee Diggers is my local club that I have dinner at frequently. The food is consistently good with a lot of variety and everything on the menu is delicious. My favourite meal is the haloumi salad and then the chocolate extravaganza for dessert. Yum. The drinks are well priced and they even serve a sweet moscato, which I love. If you are a member you also get food and drinks at a discounted price. The staff are always nice and friendly and the facilities are improving every day with constant renovations and upgrades.
