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

We spent one night there recently as we love Coogee and were collecting family from the airport. We had a King room, which was well appointed, even though it had no sea view. We had a friendly reception by the staff and check in was quick and easy. The bed was comfortable. Breakfast was included in the price. This was... More

Dive hotel was perfect for what we needed. A quick weekend visit where intended to be out of the room most of the time. The location is perfect. Really easy to get to.. about $40-50 in a cab from the airport, plenty of buses to eastgardens, randwick or bondi junction for connections. The hotel is clean, staff were pleasant but... More
