Beautiful location for a boutique hotel. Warm atmosphere and a feel like home. Self serve breakfast is fantastic and the room was well appointed and very clean. Located in the beach and very close to Coogee Bay Hotel, shops and restaurants. Would definitely stay again.

This is a very small establishment but perfect in many respects. It is right on the beach and close by the commercial streets of Coogee and beside a bus stop with route into central Sydney. My room was spacious and well appointed with microwave/fridge etc and a huge desk for the workaholics.. but only a very few rooms have a... More

Just completed a great stay at Dive Hotel. Awesome location opposite Coogee beach. The hotel is very quaint. Staff were very friendly and rooms were really nice, clean and fresh. Great pillows and shower. Would definitely return if the opportunity arises.

Such a difference to the "corporate hotel experience". Super friendly staff with great conversation every morning. I was able construct my Brompton bike and pedal to meetings every day and return to views of the beach every evening. By the end of my 2 week stay it was like staying with family - excellent experience.

Nice and friendly hotel, with a pleasant garden. The breakfast and tearoom is cosy. The rooms are big and clean, the surroundings are beautiful. We were there for business but we felt like we were at home. Nice restaurants in the neighborhood.

We liked the hotel cause it gives you a feeling like you are at home even if away from home. Its a small double story building and there are lovely dogs who belong to the owner I believe. Rooms are clean and well maintained. Room #24 where we stayed for a week has a nice blue bathroom, but there is... More

I had a great stay here in this lovely boutique hotel where the staff were extremely helpful, giving me tips on local eateries, helping arrange airport transfer etc which really added a family feel to the place. The breakfast concept of help yourself was great and again lends itself to a relaxed, family atmosphere. The room itself that I stayed... More

We loved our stay at the Dive Hotel! We booked #19 based on previous reviews - it's well worth the extra money as the bathroom is large and the soaking tub is a welcome end to a day at the beach. The view is fantastic and it's a very good location. Free wifi is a nice touch. The staff were... More

We stayed here for one night(we wish it was longer!). It was lovely to get away from the city where we stayed 3 nights, such a peaceful contrast. We stayed in room 19- what an absolute delight of a room. Huge bathroom with lovely deep bath and amazing shower. Other reviews mention tiny bathrooms so can only assume all rooms... More

We stayed as a family across 2 rooms and it was fine ... easy to get round from coogee on the buses with the opal card. would only stay here if i was with family. too much noise when people came in at night drunk and woke people up.
