This hotel was a solid place for my husband and I to stay at on our trip to Sydney. He once lived in Coogee and wanted to return. The Dive Hotel is by no means a luxury property or at the same level as a Marriott or Westin, but it had everything we needed for a stay which we didn't...

A small and cosy place right at the waterfront. The atmosphere was warm and welcoming. The dogs will make you smile on a cloudy day. My room was comfortable and clean. I really enjoyed my stay and will come back.

The place is charming and the staff are really kind. More of a BnB than a hotel, the comp continental breakfast was fine, and rooms/en suite washrooms were small but all you need. backyard area was cute. Free wifi. Highlights - great location at coogee beach, lots of great bars and restaurants nearby - easy 1hr scenic walk to bondi...

It's a glorified Backpackers. I had the misfortune of spending 3 horrible hot nights here in summer in a room with an "air conditioner" that just circulated the hot air. In addition, the sheets and towels reeked of bleach. The room looked nothing like the photographs on the website, it was small and dark and cheap looking, and, as others...

Warm welcome and a perfect location across the road from the beautiful Coogee beach. The Dive hotel is a great find and the staff are amazingly helpful and friendly. The rooms are clean and of a good size with large beds. The bathrooms are on the small side. The breakfast is simple but excellent, with outdoor (communal) seating. You are...

We had to book somewhere last minute and I'm so glad we found Dive. We arrived late at night but the instructions of how to get in and where to park were so easy to follow. The room was comfortable and compact but had everything we needed. The bed was so comfortable and huge. We jad breakfast there both mornings...

Room was ok but the walls are so thin. I could hear every person checking in and out and during breakfast. I could also hear exactly whet the person in the next room was doing in the bathroom! Location is great but not a place if you like a quiet room.

Visited in October 2016. Had a wonderful stay. Absolutely no complaints. The location is ideal, literally across the street from Coogee beach. If you want an American style hotel- stay at the Holiday Inn downtown, this place isn't for you. But if you want a quiet, bed/breakfast, family owned place with loads of charm, give the Dive Hotel a try.

Last weekend we returned to The Dive after many stays. How good it feels to be greeted with "Welcome home" from the owner.....speaks to the friendly and homely ambience of this gorgeous little boutique hotel overlooking the beautiful Coogee Beach.

We only stayed for the weekend but it was perfect for what we needed. The location is great, right across the road from the beach & close to restaurants & bars. Staff were extremely friendly & kept the hotel clean. Our room was large but the bathroom was extremely small. You could also hear the pipes when people were having...

Staying in Coogee

Neighbourhood Profile
Very accessible by public transport, Coogee is the smaller, friendlier, more intimate version of Bondi Beach. Coogee is the only beach in the Eastern suburbs that does not have big waves, making it an excellent family beach. The Coogee Bay Hotel, located right across the beach, has one of the biggest beer gardens in Australia and plenty of entertainment every night of the week. Be on the lookout for celebrity footballers! A little further south is Wylie’s Baths, offering sweeping 180 degree views over the Pacific Ocean, and it is perfect for a swim or a few laps. Plenty of dining choices surround the beach, including the famous fish and chips.

If it's a Sydney beach hotel you're after, there's none better located than Dive Hotel. It's 20 minutes drive from Sydney Airport and the City. It's a door-to-door bus ride away to the City, Opera House,NSW Uni, Randwick Racecourse, Aussie Stadium, and Cricket Ground.And it's a frisbee throw away to parks and pools, clifftop walks and Coogee's thriving restaurant, pub, club and cafe culture. It featured in Travel & Leisure USA, Conde Nast Traveler, NY Times,Time Out, Lonely Planet, London Observer and Guardian.Surf the net to your heart's content, thanks to free Wi-Fi. It's just one of the practical things that a Dive room provides. No expensive mini-bar, but a well-equipped kitchenette, with a fridge, microwave, tea, coffee and milk etc. There's free-to-air cable television, and a portable CD player. All rooms have aircon and a state-of-the-art stainless steel and blue tiled bathroom with a decent-sized hairdryer and a grown-up iron and board.Please note that there are 2 dogs on hotel premises. ... more   less
