Fabulous beach hotel in a great location. Beach, shops, bars and restaurants in close proximity. Good size rooms and spotlessly clean. We were in town for a wedding and found the accommodation suited not only us, but my folks in their 70s who had the ground floor Sea view room which was just beautiful. Staff were exceptionally helpful and friendly....

After a bumpy flight from Queensland on the tails of Hurricane Debbie my wife and I were disappointed to check into the Dive Hotel. The entrance area and rooms are tired, shabby and musty. The carpets visibly looked worn and gave the impression of being dirty. The tiny ensuite also had visible signs of needing a refresh; dirty grout, stains...

I booked this hotel because of the rating it has. We were very disappointed. It is an older building and it shows. Threadbare carpets, narrow stairs, smelly hallways and ugly decor. The hotel is in a great location and staff are friendly and attentive.

Not often you get to stay somewhere in a big city and feel like you're at home. All the staff are super friendly and you've even got a couple of sensational dogs wandering around. Top this off with the superb location and it's my first choice of accommodation for Sydney trips every time.

Continental breakfast "help yourself" is included in the room fare and very good. The location is also perfect : on thebeach and 1min walk from buses...

Nice old beach hotel with view facing the ocean. Location perfect for walking to restaurants & beach. Friendly & helpful staff. Moderately priced & rooms with a view a must. We'll definitely return again

Older style hotel. We had a most enjoyable time in a friendly atmosphere, No lift and we were on the first floor but the staff helped with the bags. Bathroom was very small. My advice would be to follow the advice of where to get the taxi to drop you off. It is a very central location.

This boutique hotel is lovely, in a unique position right on the beach and has a very nice ambience. The owner and her beautiful poodle Lucas were lovely and very welcoming. Unfortunately two of the staff were not at all helpful or customer oriented. The last morning we had to leave the hotel by 6.30 am and asked to help...

I was supposed to stay there with my bridesmaids the day before our wedding... It was disgusting...The rooms looked nothing like the photos, they actually took $600 out of my account for cancelling..i'm taking it further as it was false advertising like their photos...Pertrude i was appalled, as my were my bridesmaid...wouldn't recommend it to an animal....

The Dive Hotel was more than we expected for friendliness and great location. The people all went out of their way to be helpful in many ways. Our room had a beach view and small balcony....definitely worth paying a bit more.

Neighbourhood Profile
Coogee
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.

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.
