The hotel is conveniently located near the beach and has bus stops nearby for travel to the city one way or East Gardens the other way.The rooms are cosy and the management staff are wonderful! This is actually a pub hotel but the rooms are quiet.

This hotel is clean, not fancy, but a good value for Sydney. There is no pool, but it is within walking distance of Maroubra Beach. It is next door to Woolworth's, which is handy because the rooms have small refrigerators and microwaves. The beds are comfortable and the AC works well. Each room has a sliding door that opens to...

This hotel has had a shaky past. A number of people who owned and operated it did a poor job. The current owner is doing a very good job. It's pub food but it's pretty good. the prices are similar to e good cafe. The setting is lovely. In the bar area, you can see out through the windows to...

Hi There. Thank you for your review - but it looks like you've got the wrong hotel! The Sands Hotel is located in South Maroubra, just over the hill (it used to be a sand dune - hence the name). Although we're only a 5 minute walk from the beach, we have no view to the sea. We like to...

Clean, quiet, tidy, very little welcome. We had two heavy suitcases no elevator and the 20 steps got us off to a bad start. The "accommodation" is part of the restaurant/bar complex and feels a bit like a backpackers. Needs upgrading. Supermarket next door is convenient. We had room #10 and the laundry was right outside our door. Wasn't an...

The room was clean and there was no smell of cigarette smoke in the room at all although smoking is allowed on balconies. We were there on two mid-week nights and the pub was very quiet for both of them. Because the hotel's proximity to the airport, there was some air traffic noise as well as a little traffic noise,...

Good basic accommodation above the sands hotel . Stayed on a Saturday night no noise from the pub downstairs, walk to Maroubra beach and restaurant. The rooms are clean and modern have a flat screen tv and Air conditioning and are reasonably priced for this area 10 mins drive from Cogee that has a lot of restaurants and bars

Stayed with family this week on our way to Overseas trip. Very convenient location for beach, shops and other amenities but it's not suitable for the families. No lifts and not very clean. Pub like accommodation and bistro. Staff wasn't over enthused to see us. $180 a night is not cheap but we selected this place as it was only...

Thank you for taking the time to review your recent stay at the Sands Hotel. I'm sorry to hear that your experience was less than perfect. We are very happy to be the ONLY motel for miles around that offers family rooms (that can sleep 4 people) free parking and free WiFi for only $180, so it's disappointing to hear...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Sands Hotel in Maroubra offers the perfect 3.5 star (AAA Rated) accommodation base for exploring the wonderful Eastern Beaches of Sydney. We are like a friendly, first rate country motel and pub - only ours is just 20 minutes from both the centre of Sydney City and the airport! The Sands Hotel Motel consists of 15 rooms, all with free WIFI, ensuite, balcony, reverse-cycle air-conditioning, fridge, kettle, toaster, free tea and coffee, flat screen digital TV's (with over 20 channels to choose from) and daily servicing. Our Deluxe rooms are larger and are positioned to the quieter rear of the building, away from the street. Some Deluxe rooms are available with inter-connecting doors; ideal for large families (please call to check availability). All our rooms are on the first floor (up a short flight of stairs), with the Bistro, bar, function room and bottleshop on the ground floor. We are a friendly, family-run pub in the South Maroubra Shopping Village. We are community minded, and committed to providing a fun, safe and family friendly venue with great value meals from our Bistro, and well-maintained facilities in our motel and bar. There's ping-pong, darts, pool and arcade games, KENO, TAB and of course... really good beer. ... more   less
