Its so difficult to find hotels where the personal service element and friendliness of the team stands head and shoulders above the hotel. The Dive Hotel has all of this and more, a superb location overlooking Coogee Beach , stroll out with your towel right onto the beach, linger at their simple but wonderful light continental buffet breakfast, chat to...

Apart from the fact that, even as a Sydneysider, I thought Coogee was near Manly so there went those activities, the two couples who made up our group loved this hotel. Rooms were clean and overlooked the beach and we were able to watch the buzz in the street below, even though the weather turned against us. Loved the fact... More

The hotel is in a great location just opposite Coogee beach and while some areas in rooms and public areas are in urgent need of some TLC it is not your run of the mill hotel with a cosy, homely feel to it. There are certian areas that I found a little underwhelming (amenities etc.) but I could easily still... More

Terry B, Owner at Dive Hotel, responded to this review

Thank you Krautoz. We are happy to cop constructive criticism from fellow boutique hoteliers, particularly a local like yourself. Although we do question the ethics of one hotelier reviewing another (we don’t think Matt Moran reviewing a Neal Perry restaurant would be taken too seriously). And while your initial criticisms may be totally subjective, we’ll certainly take them on board.... More

We LOVED Dive Hotel! A big difference to our previous hotel in the city but wonderful! Its right on the ocean and we had one of the best rooms with a sea view and balcony - I think it was 19. The hosts are so friendly and welcoming you feel like you are in their home and they have known... More

The first thing to greet us when we entered the hotel was the huge black Standard Poodle with a sophisticated attitude and a deep welcoming bark. A really quaint hotel right opposite the beach and within easy walk of all facilities. With a truly eclectic atmosphere it was more like staying in a private home than a hotel. Very pleasant...

Stayed here for a week in November and it was a great experience. Terry, Mercedes and their staff made us feel very welcome as it was like being welcomed into someone's home. The room was spacious and had everything we needed for our stay, including the bottle opener! The set up in the breakfast room was great as everyone talked... More

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
