We normally stay close to the centre of Sydney when we visit, but this time, being summer, decided to stay by the beach. And what an inspired choice! We chose The Dive for its location opposite the beach, and because it looked like the sort of hotel we like to stay in - small but thoughtfully presented. It succeeds on...

This boutique hotel is in the most amazing location - literally across the street from the beach and right in the middle of the main strip of restaurants and bars in Coogee. The rooms are clean and comfortable and have everything that you need. The courtyard out the back is a perfect retreat from the bustle of the city, and...

Great location across the road from Coogee beach. Plenty of good cafes/restaurants nearby. The rooms were clean and comfortable. Staff were friendly and helpful. Breakfast was great. The breaky room was also nice to sit in and have a quiet afternoon cuppa after being out and about. Really enjoyed our stay.

Located across the road from the southern corner of Coogee Beach and right near the Coogee Bay Hotel. The owners focus on what they can do and they do it very well. Breakfast is continental rather than cooked but there is a good selection of cereals and lots of options for brewing your own coffee at the table. I stayed...

The hotel is super quirky and so close to the main shops of coogee and even closer to the beach. From the moment you ring the buzzer to be let in and the friendly staff assist you with beaming smiles you just feel comfortable . We only stayed for 1 night in an ocean view room on the ground floor...

Beautiful location for a boutique hotel. Warm atmosphere and a feel like home. Self serve breakfast is fantastic and the room was well appointed and very clean. Located in the beach and very close to Coogee Bay Hotel, shops and restaurants. Would definitely stay again.

This is a very small establishment but perfect in many respects. It is right on the beach and close by the commercial streets of Coogee and beside a bus stop with route into central Sydney. My room was spacious and well appointed with microwave/fridge etc and a huge desk for the workaholics.. but only a very few rooms have a...

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
