This hotel was booked for us by our family in Australia as they wanted us to stay in Coogee. We loved it, everyone was so friendly and we had a lovely room with a part sea view. Breakfast was lovely. Would not hesitate to go again if given the chance.

We had such a wonderful stay at Dive. Thank you to Mercedes and Terry and the staff for being so accommodating with our stressful situation. The room we stayed had a spectacular uninterrupted ocean view that we enjoyed watching the waves and feeling the refreshing breeze. The location could not be better! There are so many delightful restaurants near by,... More

We recently returned from an amazing 50 night stay in Sydney at Dive Annexe with 3 kids and our nanny and mother in law. It didn't come cheap to stay so long, and even being a very savvy traveler I felt my every single cent was worth the experience. Just a background - we lived in Sydney for 8 years... More

Have stayed at this hotel many times over the last few years. Very relaxed and homely with a nice breakfast and a B&B feel. Great location on the beach and walking distance to the main street of Coogee. The perfect escape within Sydney. Staff are also fantastic.

This hotel is more like a very large b n b. It was great for our needs. Free breakfast in the communal area, rooms were comfortable (although small). We didn't have a view, nor did we need one. There are a lot of stairs in this hotel, would not be suitable for mobility impaired people. Parking was a bit sketchy... More

Thank you for your review, we are glad you enjoyed your stay at The Dive! And you are right, Lucas the poodle does love to greet the guests! In regards to the car parking, yes the spots are uncovered but off street in the back courtyard directly behind the hotel. They are privately owned so the hotel does need to... More

I really liked this hotel - cool, funky, homely atmosphere and a great refurbishment of an old building. I loved the outdoor help-yourself breakfast but would have really enjoyed some gluten free cereal or bread. Well done guys.

I chose this hotel based on trip advisor reviews and am glad I did. Really friendly and helpful staff who made us feel like we were entering a home rather than a hotel. Breakfast with espresso and plunger coffee that you can help yourself to at any time. The beach is directly across the road with loads of restaurants etc... More

As others have mentioned, the best thing about this hotel is the location, which really is excellent. We stayed in Room 1, one of two rooms at the front of the property that have ocean views and we loved the view from the floor-to-ceiling windows. (This is the room in the main photo on TripAdvisor). But this room also had... More

The location is just perfect right across from Coogee beach with good bus routes to get you into the city in about half an hour. Last time I stayed they had two dogs and a cat but sadly I didn't get to meet them again but now they have the new addition to the family, Lucas a beautiful poodle who... More

Location is brilliant - right on the beach. The bed and linen was always clean and the staff very nice. That's where the good description ends. Our room bore no resemblance whatsoever to the rooms on the website. No wood floor - we had patched black carpet. No designer bathroom - very tiny toilet and shower room with the tile... More
