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 stayed at the Maroubra Sands Hotel while in Sydney for 2 nights and enjoyed our stay there. The hotel is only 10 mins walk from Maroubra Beach, a coastal cliffs walk, board walk and Marine Parade. As we were travelling without a car we found the bus interchange in Marine Parade handy with regular busses into the Sydney CBD...

G'Day TasmanTravellers! Thank you for your review. We're glad you enjoyed your two nights at our hotel, and happy to hear your encounters with our staff were positive. Most of our staff are Maroubra locals and have a wealth of knowledge about how to get around town. As back-up, we carry a stash of all the bus timetables at reception,...

Sydney is an expensive place to stay, so I was happy when I found this hotel for a decent price, not far from the airport, not too far from the CBD, and near a beach. We actually really enjoyed the Maroubra area. The room we stayed in was clean. Hotel wasn't too far from the beach and some restaurants and...

Thank you for taking the time to review our hotel. In our (possibly biased) opinion, Maroubra is Sydney's best beach. It's got everything you could ask for: world-class surf breaks, rockpools for the little ones, an enclosed ocean pool at the north end and plenty of cafes, bars and free parking. Add in a skate park, outdoor gym and massive...

My mother-in-law and I were very pleased with the friendly staff, large, clean room and location of this hotel. We couldn't have wished for more after a very tiring day visiting my husband at the Prince of Wales Hospital. We will definitely be back again.

Thanks for taking the time to post a review! We loved having you all here for your reunion...

The new Bistro at the Sands was the choice for dinner after a long day at work. My choice was the O.M.G. Burger. It was a monster burger, complete with bacon, cheese, tomato, caramelised onion and a oversized beef patties, all secured with a wooden skewer. Served with shoestring fries and horseradish ketchup. I needed 2 napkins to eat this...

It's actually a motel. We almost miss the entrance because it's really a small side-door of the building. The front-door of the building is actually a bistro, although I hardly hear any noise from it. The motel building is right next to the grocery store and a petrol station. It has plenty of open car park and it's free! It's...

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
