We stayed at the Dive Hotel in Coogee for two weeks...and had the most amazing time. Our room was at the front with a view over the sea, and a small kitchenette which was very useful for making tea and coffee or something to eat (not that we ever ate in when we were there) when the kitchen wasn't open....

Lovely, small guesthouse directly opposite the beach at Coogee. Excellent location and a great place to stay. The hotel has a cold breakfast and is two doors away from the Coogee Bay pub and a street of restaurants. The hotel dog, Lucas, is an added homely touch. Possibly better for couples/ singles rather than families. Small bathroom though.

I could start and end this review with "we booked 2 nights and stayed an additional night because we loved the place so much!" Great staff, great location and excellent gourmet touches like French Press Coffee and tea service available throughout the day. Coogee Beach is delightful and the walk between it and Bondi is magical! Stay here!

It's just a 24 hours layover in Sydney this time and we choose the Dive hotel to finish well our 20 day trip to Australia and New Zealand. After a lot of research a last day on beach looks good and the Dive hotel was the right choice. Located in Coogee beach this hotel have a nice mixed retro-style on... More

Dive hotel is certainly a small boutique hotel with a great location. IT is right across the beach and around the corner from the Coogee shops and restaurants! We stayed for two nights in late February, the staff were very friendly, thoughtful and welcoming. The hotel is brightly coloured and had a good feel. We had the King room, it... More

This hotel is all about the location. It has the potential to be really lovely but the room we stayed in was really quite tired. They have beautiful high and ornate ceilings but our room ceiling was peeling and dirty. We had absolutely no view which didn't bother us but at the cost of $200 per night it seems a... More

We stayed at the Dive Hotel as a one night stop over after flying in late from Adelaide and meeting with friends in North Sydney the following day - and it was absolutely perfect for what we wanted. The central location is great - beach and restaurants on your doorstep - and it was really lovely to wake up early... More

In between the Crown Plaza & the Coogee Bay hotel is the Dive hotel,straight across the road from beautiful Coogee beach. This fact won me from the start. The staff showed us to the room which was on the 1st floor & I was expecting great views of the beach having paid $245 for a Premier King room. Our view... More

This hotel is right on the beach in Coogee, and a 30 minute bus ride away from downtown Sydney. They offer a continental breakfast with things like bread, jam, yogurt, cereal, and fruit. The room itself was clean, the staff members were helpful and friendly, and there is parking just outside the hotel (for a $20 extra fee). The room... More

A great location and a far quieter and more personal experience than that which is on offer from the nearby larger hotels. The staff were helpful and friendly. Worth going back to. The swimming in Coogee in both the sea and the pools is great. Yoga nearby.
