Location is great. While the room was clean, we had to access the room via an outside metal stairway which was slippery and awkward with cases. Breakfast was very basic and staff almost non-existent. I cannot really recommend Dive hotel. Also being met by a large dog was a bit unwelcoming.

Disappointing experience overall. I stayed here on business and found the room to be extremely uncomfortable. Upon arrival, I discovered that there were many stairs leading to the front entrance (fine for me but would have been difficult for someone with mobility problems).

Great place to stay, on the sea front. Easy walk down to the shops and beach. Good public transport links nearby. Friendly and helpful welcome by staff. Clean room and bathroom. Very relaxing place to stay.

Well-located friendly small hotel, reasonably priced, comfortable with friendly staff and poodle! Close to lots of family friendly eateries and public transport. Made for a great base for a mother and daughter weekend

The hotel is small, modern, and well run. The rooms are clean and spacious and the staff very helpful. Breakfast is relaxed, coffee good and cereals filling. This is a nice place to have as your base. Sydney is very close and for me family is even closer. It was a delightful time away from home in all respects.

What a lovely surprise. Great room, excellent view, perfect location and very friendly service. We stayed for two nights in a front top floor room and loved everything about the place, especially the convenience of Coogee and the magical Wylie's Baths.

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
