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.

When you look at the front entrance, looks very modern, but once you walk through the door, it is like going back in time. It is an old boarding house done up, many of old features such as tiled passageways, high ceilings etc. All very clean, very quaint. Have to say bathroom is on small side, but space has been...

This little gem, perched above Coogee Beach but quiet as you need it to be, is a perfect place to settle in to all the area has to offer. The staff are very accommodating and friendly, the breakfast options are quite healthy, the place is clean and the location is ideal. What's not to like? The room we had fit... More

The hotel that doesn't feel like a hotel. It's lovely and homely. Staff are friendly and the house dogs are fun. The room was on the smaller side but big enough for 2 people to be comfortable; the bathroom however was tiny. It's functional but probably not great if you want a lot of privacy from your traveling companion. Also... More
