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.

Didn't end up staying, but was very impressed with staff whilst trying to find place to stay for a family 21st. Hopefully will get the chance to stay another time. It looks amazing and the staff bend over backwards to help

We had two nights at the dive! The hotel was in a great position in Coogee! Our room was clean basic but good for our time there! A continental breakfast was provided which was nice! Lucas the poodle come part time concierge was also fun. All the staff were friendly and helpful.

This property has a great location, right across from Cooge Beach. However, I consider it to be more of a Bed & Breakfast, with breakfast being minimal at best (toast, cereal). You're given a key to enter the property, as reception is at the back of the property and is not always manned. Room was small, but had everything you...

New owners maybe? The rooms need new linen and pillows. Very uncomfortable! The attention to detail we experienced at our last visit was not there. Great location though, right in the heart of Coogee,across the road from home the beach.

Amazing start to our holiday in a dreamy relaxing location with lovely staff, a roomy and comfortable bed and gorgeous dogs! Mercedes and her team do an incredible job of looking after you but not being intrusive- breakfast chats truly feel like you're spending time with friends!

I have stayed at the Dive a number of times and am never disappointed. The location and ambience are wonderful. The rooms are always clean and comfortable. Management is always helpful. The big drawcard for me are the resident dogs.

Location was amazing. The room was simple but had everything I required. It was clean and spacious. Great cafes and shops near by and literally across the road from the beach. Everything in walking distance.

A very cute and quirky little Gem opposite the Beach. The location is fantastic between two larger Hotels but surprisingly quiet. Very comfortable Bed and eclectic furnishings. Continental Breakfast is provided downstairs in an indoor and outdoor Dining area. The atmosphere overall gives you the feeling of staying with Family or Friends a very pleasant experience and definitely a place...

Staying in Coogee

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.
