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... More

The first impression of this small hotel was a little disappointment, but this did not last for long. The place was right on the beach, quirky and very friendly. The room was big with a big and very comfortable bed, but the shower could use a little more space. The Rome had a galley kitchen and microwave if you wanted... More

We enjoyed our stay at this hotel, great location, welcoming staff and a nice clean room. The ensuite was very small and walls are a bit thin as we could hear other people talking in the breakfast area while in our room We loved the furnishings and atmosphere plus there were lots of magazines available.

The best part about this hotel is that you are 200m from the beach. Just cross the street and you can dip your feet in the ocean. The rooms, however, are a little odd. While the kitchen is a nice feature, there is really not much space to store any clothes. Even worse, the bathroom is the smallest one with... More

Very good location and quiet near Sydney. We apreciated our room with a balcony district view. The room for the breafast is very friendly and gives the oppotunity to discuss with the other guests. Our stay was a very good experience.

Spent 3 nights here for a weekend away. Great comfortable accommodation at an affordable price. Breakfast is included and there's a good selection of coffees! Staff were friendly and helpful. It was nice mingling at breakfast with other guests.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
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
