Stayed at this lovely little place a bit over a year ago. My room was very good with plenty of space. The breakfast setup great for my needs. I loved the personal touch form the owners. Great choice when you got a seminar in the area.

After being disappointed with crown coogee last visit we decided to stay at a smaller more intimate hotel. We stayed for the weekend and would definitely come back again. The room was large and views of the beach. The host were friendly and very accommodating. We had late flight and were given afternoon check out at no extra cost which... More

The Dive hotel is situated opposite the iconic Coogee beach. It could trade on its great location alone but The Dive offers much more. Friendly boutique hotel atmosphere. Our party booked 4 king rooms. There are 16 rooms in total and there seemed to be a variety of room sizes available depending on budget. We had a room at the... More

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.
