Love the sands, this is our fourth time staying there and as a family of four we love it. The staff are amazing so welcoming and nothing is too much bother. Rooms are a bit dated but are really clean. Great value for money. Looking forward to our next visit.

This is not for those looking for that luxury beach side holiday experience. It is however ideal for those on a budget looking for clean comfortable accomodation adjacent to the beach and city. A bit tired looking but adequate for our needs. Room was large with a queen size bed and 2king singles. Beds were comfortable and I got a...

A Large room with three comfortable beds with lovely crisp white sheets on the beds. Bathroom and bedroom were both ultra clean. It was basic but comfortable and good value for money. This hotel has an excellent bottle shop. Very handy pharmacy and supermarket next door.

We stayed here as we were attending a friends wedding in the area. The room was clean, light & airy, with a large balcony and pretty much all the things you would need for a short stay. There is a shopping centre next door, pub attached, and it is about a ten minute walk to Maroubra Beach. The price was...

Welcoming staff were very friendly and helpful, using the laundry was a welcome bonus as we were travelling onwards from SYD early next morning. The room was basic but clean, wifi worked well. Hotel is located within local shopping centre. Bar downstairs was busy but not unduly noisy and we slept early and well, leaving around 2am.

I have stayed at this hotel several times now and will return again. For the price it is hard to beat in Sydney. It is walking distance to Maroubra beach, has free parking and free Wifi. The accommodation is basic but clean. The room has a microwave, fridge and utensils so with the supermarket next door, I can make my...

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...

Great location, close from the airport and has a woolworths, bottle shop, cafe and pharmacy just next door. The beach is only 5min away and is beautiful with lots of surfing going on.

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
