“A pleasant stay.”
Reviewed 27 April 2014

The room was clean, comfortable, quiet and quite spacious. The staff were pleasant, the location handy for our purposes and the parking convenient. The village shops very close by were useful too. If we need to be out that way again we would certainly return to the Sands.

Affordable family room for two adults and two teenagers in Sydney. Helpful courteous staff. Large comfortable clean room, with well appointed kitchenette and large bathroom. Balcony inaccessible due to locked screen door, though great to have access to windows that open! Would be great if WiFi code for free access was readily offered to guests.
Great location near beach, safe parking and very handy to supermarket. Quiet neighborhood and not disturbed by pub underneath rooms. Would stay there again

Having completed our cruise and needing to find some accomadation close to family who live in Maroubra we found ourselves as guests at The Sands
We where greeted by friendly staff who went out of their way to help even ensuring our room was available on arrival from our cruise ship.
Everything was neat and clean and with shopping facilities in close proximity The Sands is an excellant venue for that family week end with the added bonus of Maroubra Beach 5 minutes away.
We would strongly recommend this venue.

Room Tip: Pay a little more for the superior room. It is worth it in my view.

I have stayed at "The Sands" many times and this stay was as good as always.
Lovely spacious clean rooms with kitchen. Really friendly staff. Maroubra is a beautiful area with a good surfing beach 5 minutes away.

Transport is the only weakness as there is a bus service nearby but you can wait awhile and it goes around all the area and takes time to get anywhere. If you have a car, no problem, Plenty of of parking.

Room Tip: They are all much the same. Good

Searching for reasonably priced accommodation in Coogee/Maroubra area, we discovered this gem. Although a little apprehensive about staying in a local pub, we were very pleasantly surprised at the standard of room. Very clean, always well serviced during our 4 day stay with none of those dirty bedspreads which seem to inhabit many motels in this country. Staff were extremely friendly and with a couple of different bus options close by, together with a supermarket right next door, we would highly recommend this establishment. Our requested room at the back of the hotel was also very quiet.

Room Tip: There is no lift, but the stairs are manageable and would recommend requesting a back room.

I regularly stay at the Sands Hotel, working in the Port Botany area which is 10 minutes drive away. I have found the staff to be very friendly and accommodating. The rooms are always clean and tidy (thankyou Chris), excellent hot water with plenty of pressure. Maroubra beach is only a short 10 minute leisurely stroll away and the walk along the seaside (pathway) towards Coogee Beach is easy and relaxing. There is a Woolworths next door to the pub which is handy when working away from home and the pub food is also good value (George is always willing to do that bit extra if you ask nicely). Free Wi-Fi is also very handy with a reasonably high speed connection (except during peak periods). Overall good value!

Room Tip: Rooms (1 to 4) at the far end of the building (away from the stairwell) are less noisy.

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
