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

Stayed at the Dive Hotel at Coogee for a few days with my wife while attending a conference at a nearby hotel. I agree that the service was very good and having the dogs gave it a very homely feel. The location is excellent (although access from Arden St is awkward when carrying luggage) and the bed was very comfortable.... More

We stayed here on a miserable wet weekend but the Dive was the shining star of the weekend. Great location, great set up and a wonderful change to chain hotels.. We stayed in a airy twin room that despite the weather was bright and comfortable... I'll be back

We had a lovely 2 night stay in the King room which faces the beach with an unobstructed view of the ocean. The location is fabulous and if you can stretch the budget, I'd definitely recommend this room. As other reviews have mentioned, the bathrooms are very small but the ceiling is high so you don't feel hemmed in. The... More

The service here is absolutely wonderful. The staff were so friendly and helpful! We got the warmth and feel of a family business, but completely professional in their delivery. As for the location, you are literally across the street from the beach, and in the heart of the hustle and bustle of Coogee. There can be a bit of noise... More

We can definitely recommend this hotel! The staff were really friendly and chatty, location was perfect and rooms were lovely and clean! The breakfast looked delicious but there wasn't many gluten free options. Thanks for the stay, we will come back!

This is a gem of a hotel - more like a home away from home which even includes a poodle called Lucas! Trendy rooms - we stayed in Room 2 and had a great view of the beach. Bathroom was a little small but serviceable. Parking is limited but can be reserved. Continental breakfast was included in the price and... More
