This hotel looked NOTHING like the pictures on the website. First, you either have to climb a bunch of stairs to get into the hotel, OR use the very steep, cement walkway (which has a couple stairs at the top that can't be seen from the bottom). You enter a dark, creepy hallway, that enters into a messy, dated, cheap looking "reception/breakfast area." The stairs to the guest rooms are very tight, and if you have a big bag, good luck getting up there. The rooms were reminiscent of an old Motel 6, or something similar, but the beds seemed clean enough, though. The one plus is that the hotel is DIRECTLY across the street from the beach, so if that's what interests you, this location is great for that. Staff seemed nice enough, but didn't love the huge dog who wanders the hotel. (Dog seemed nice, I'm just not a dog fan.) Also, you can smell the doggy smell as soon as you enter the building. Very, very average accommodations, and the website pictures aren't even close to reality. We were very disappointed.

There is no such thing as Customer Service in the vocab of the staff at this hotel. They tell you they have rooms available and you book the rooms and they never confirm the bookings and you end up with no booking. When you phone them to follow up they talk over the top of you and are so ignorant and rude and then hang up on you without any form of explanation. Do not book here if you actually want a hotel to stay at once arriving in Sydney. Terrible service and the Manager Jandro is so dodgy and sketchy. I wouldn't let me worst enemy stay here.

Room tip: terrible, horrible place

My friend and I concluded our 3-week Australian adventure in Coogee. This hotel was recommended by a local.
Perfect location. Lovely hosts. Nice accommodation. Delicious breakfast.
If I return to Sydney-Coogee, I wouldn’t stay anywhere else.

A boutique hotel that is opposite Coogee beach
The location is excellent
A large bus stop is opposite,with buses that can take you to Bondi or Circular Quay or anywhere in between
Wylies baths is a 4 minute walk away ,where you can enjoy surf swimming in a pool
The rooms at the Dive hotel are large with a quirky bathroom and cupboards and shelves that accommodate clothing for beach or formal occasions
The Breakfast is healthy with muesli intermixed with nuts and dried apricots and add to this the most delicious honey yoghurt,that would make Manu of MKR jealous
The staff are welcoming and keep your bedrooms clean and tidy
The handsome hotel poodle,Lucas and his co host, Ruby Tuesday , the Scottish terrier,ensure that your stay is a memorable and an enjoyable one!!!!

We stayed here for 1night as a weekend beach getaway.
Location excellent opposite the Coogee beach, within walking distance to variety of bars, cafes and restaurants. Coogee is buzzing with atmosphere.
Room clean and comfortable with all hotel comforts.
Staff friendly and helpful.
We drove in parking in rear of hotel for $30.
Will definitely return !
