Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 27 October 2013

My recent stay at the Sands Hotel Maroubra was very pleasant, the staff were all very friendly and helpful the room was very well presented and quiet. The location was excellent with very convenient access to public bus services and the beach was very close and clean. I would recommend this hotel for your visit to the Eastern suburbs.

Room Tip: All the rooms seem to be located on the southern side the aircon was very quiet as were the rooms. A...

Good basic rooms, with plenty of space. At a small shopping centre so plenty of parking and if you forget anything you can likley buy it.
They forgot the shampoo so don't forget to bring some.
Beaches near by but no views from the rooms.

If you want to stay in a place that's cheap & cheerful then this could be it, all the staff we met couldn't be more helpful. The bar was full of very friendly people enjoying the sport and betting. A good nights sleep was had, after the couple in the next room had finished venting there passion.

Room Tip: If all you want is a place next to the sea then Sands is OK. If you want to go in to Sydney catching...

Their staff are friendly , honest, and accommodating . We were allowed to check in earlier which is a plus because our flight arrival was early morning. We went out at day time and returned with the room already clean , towels were replaced. The hotel is accessible to everything , with shops beside the hotel and the bus stop just nearby. Food and drinks downstairs were nice too. We'll definitely stay there again.

Salt of the earth people in hotel services and bar. We felt at home. Very convenient location to assist for my daughter's move to Maroubra and it will be a great base for visits. It is also nice to be so close to Woolworths, newsagents and chemist. Very clean, and very comfortable for affordable, spacious accommodation.

Room Tip: Our room was fine. Didn't hear anyone else.

The Sands Hotel in Maroubra offers the perfect 3.5 star (AAA Rated) accommodation base for exploring the wonderful Eastern Beaches of Sydney.

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
