Well appointed room. The tele was set quite high and very small. This is not usually an issue as we didn't go there to watch tv and we were happy to watch the tennis at the nearby coogee beach hotel sports bar. The bathroom is very small and accounts for the loss of one point. Everything else was great and... More

Older renovated building, small hotel. Free breakfasts and excellent location. Across the street from the beach. Rooms are fine. Lobby a bit musty, but is is a beach location. Nice outdoor patio and free use of beach towels. Close to everything you need. If you want a view the rates a considerably higher for a balcony room. Reasonable value for... More

We stayed in the dive hotel over New Years this year. It's the perfect spot on the beachfront with lots of options of restaurants and bars nearby. The hotel room was basic but very clean. The staff couldn't of been more helpful and friendly. Would stay here again in a heartbeat!

We normally stay close to the centre of Sydney when we visit, but this time, being summer, decided to stay by the beach. And what an inspired choice! We chose The Dive for its location opposite the beach, and because it looked like the sort of hotel we like to stay in - small but thoughtfully presented. It succeeds on... More

This boutique hotel is in the most amazing location - literally across the street from the beach and right in the middle of the main strip of restaurants and bars in Coogee. The rooms are clean and comfortable and have everything that you need. The courtyard out the back is a perfect retreat from the bustle of the city, and... More

Great location across the road from Coogee beach. Plenty of good cafes/restaurants nearby. The rooms were clean and comfortable. Staff were friendly and helpful. Breakfast was great. The breaky room was also nice to sit in and have a quiet afternoon cuppa after being out and about. Really enjoyed our stay.

Located across the road from the southern corner of Coogee Beach and right near the Coogee Bay Hotel. The owners focus on what they can do and they do it very well. Breakfast is continental rather than cooked but there is a good selection of cereals and lots of options for brewing your own coffee at the table. I stayed... More

The hotel is super quirky and so close to the main shops of coogee and even closer to the beach. From the moment you ring the buzzer to be let in and the friendly staff assist you with beaming smiles you just feel comfortable . We only stayed for 1 night in an ocean view room on the ground floor... More
