Staff were very friendly. Meals were exellent. Everything was in order. Stairs would be an issue for some peop;e. Balcony was good to sit and reflent on but had no view. Supurmarket and chemist next door was handy.

Room Tip: all rooms are up stairs.

Clean, well maintained, new fitout.
Good service. On premises 'Georges Bistro' convenient and reasonable pub food.
Great beach. 5 minutes walk.
Convenient shopping centre next door.
Need to keep balcony doors shut on southern side rooms due to smokers in bar below. Otherwise all good

Room Tip: Woolworths and shops next door

We spent 10 nights in the Sands Hotel. The rooms were clean when we arrived and cleaned to a high standard every day, also very spacious. Fresh towels and beds made every day, staff were friendly and helpful. Excellent for exploring the Sydney area and away from the hustle and bustle of the City. About 40/50 mins on bus to City (bus stop 2 mins from Hotel). Beach is beautiful with a few eating places in the day time. Not good for eating out in the evening as hardly anywhere to go, Unfortunately, during our stay, the Bistro had closed for staff holidays so we are unable to comment about the food there.

Excellent value for money.

Room Tip: Our room was next to the laundry room, although it didn't bother us it may bother other people...

We had a great stay at Sand Hotel. Staff were really friendly, the rooms were comfortable and clean. The meals in the pub are really good value! I'd come back for sure. I was worried the pub would get noisy at night, but it was very quiet. Beautiful beach is a short walk away.

We spent 4 nights with my 4 years old and 4 months kids. We booked a deluxe bedroom. The room was comfortable, very clean and quiet although there is a pub downstairs. The staff was very friendly and the food at the pub very cheap and good.
The hotel is located just 5 minutes walk to Maroubra beach and 45 minutes by bus to the city. I definitely recommend this hotel.
Very good value for the price.

Room Tip: Book a deluxe room instead of a standard. My brother in law was traveling with us and had booked a s...

Basic motel, but enhanced by fabulous staff who went out of their way to help. Handy to Maroubra Beach and Eastern suburbs generally. Great for visiting friends and family. Adjacent to a shopping centre with a Woollies, newsagent, chemist etc. The deluxe room's kitchenette made it easy to prepare own breakfasts, although the bistro food downstairs is great. Quiet location, particularly at back in deluxe rooms. Would recommend.

Room Tip: Deluxe rooms at back are probably quieter.

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 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
