What a find! Stayed overnight in this great little hotel. Check-in and check-out was a breeze. All Staff are very happy and friendly. We travelled with other family members and booked two rooms. Each room was clean, roomy and well lit. We were a family of four, so our room consisted of a double and two singles. This hotel is...

Four adults sharing one room. One double bed and two singles. We just wanted somewhere cheap to sleep without having to share a bedroom or bathroom with strangers so this was it. Quite good, not noisy and very close to Woolworths supermarket and a couple of take away shops.

My family and I really enjoyed our stay at the Sands Hotel. The rooms were clean and comfortable, and we have to say a big thank you to "Chrissie" for her kindness and helpfulness. The food at the Bistro was exceptional, along with the great service in the Pub. All the staff were terrific. The location of the Sands is...

Stayed here for 2 nights to attend our son's wedding which was only 500mtres from Horizons function venue. Had a deluxe room at rear which was clean,spacious and good value, the small shopping center next to it was handy as it has a supermarket,chemist,bakery and a charcoal chicken shop. Staff were friendly and the service was good.

Fabulous Bistro, handy location. LOVED the food, great prices, it was a real find, I wish I lived in Sydney to take advantage of it. I had Beer battered John Dory fillets, chips, homemade Tartare sauce and a garden salad and they just don’t come any better, especially at that price. The staff were very friendly and helpful.

This pleasant pub hotel is tucked away in suburban streets and forms part of a small shopping complex a short walk from the beach. Our Deluxe room was standard format with a balcony and spacious bathroom. All clean bright and in good condition. We were weary from travel and rang ahead to see if we could check in early. The...

Reasonably priced accommodation for Sydney. Good location for a holiday stay, but unfortunately I was only there for the night so didn't get to explore or enjoy what they had to offer. Room was above the pub, so a little noisy in the evening. Good pub food on offer. Comfortable room with basic amenities.

Wow - thanks for the great review! We're so glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay, and were treated with the country-style hospitality we aspire to in this big city of ours!

Good standard rooms and very good bistro food, though we found the dividing room walls too thin to deaden the sounds from noisy neighbours. Fortunately they wound up by 11pm. Good location not far from Malabar Rd with an easy drive to Maroubra beach for breakfast across from the Mahon pool.

We have stayed for a night. It must be a wonderful place.

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
