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...

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... I never got to ask how much things have changed since you worked in the area 50 years ago, but I imagine the answer would be "quite a bit"!

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...

Ha! I know what you mean. We are thinking of changing the name to Food Coma Burger. It's become one of our best sellers. I hope you've continued to enjoy the rest of our menu. Please be sure to give us any feedback. See you soon! Gina Hooper Licensee

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...

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.

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.

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
