In my experience no lift available so less suited for disabled. Room spacious and well appointed for o'night. A slight smokey smell but not a real problem. Very clean, obliging staff but very curt check-in thru' door counter which was opened for me and promptly shut once money and keys exchanged - worried about security? We felt perfectly safe.

If you're looking for basic accommodation at the best surf beach in Sydney then this is the place. Excellent for families. Close to the beach, shops and playgrounds. Easy access from the south of Sydney.

At first, the hotel was booked out and we were to stay further out from Maroubra and travel each day for a surf comp. But, the reception juggled things around to fit us in which was very cool and customer focused. Very impressed with the staff and rooms were clean and tidy. The hotels meals were awesome and well priced.... More

My wife and children had an overnight stay in Sydney for a weekend and stayed at the Sands. When we arrived an hour early before check in the staff were extremely friendly and helped us out with no problems. The room was nice and clean, modern and had a good size fridge and microwave. The bistro in the hotel served... More

The room was of a good standard. The beds were comfortable and the room was clean and presentable. Check-in and out was efficient and the staff were very helpful. Our only complaint would be in relation to our noisy neighbours. We were in a room with a locked adjoining door and we could hear everything, and I mean everything. The... More

Convenient location above the pub which serves great food and next to Woolworths where you can buy something basic for breakfast and prepare it in the room (microwave, toaster, plates and cutlery provided). No lift, so had to drag the heavy case up the stairs but otherwise a good comfortable room.

$13 for a middie and half a rack of ribs, best value in the eastern suburbs. Succulent, fall of the bone pork ribs coupled with a icy middle of Carlton Draught, can't find better around this neighbourhood. Kid friendly and cheap meals for nippers also. Highly recommended.

You might think that a room above a pub would not be ideal for families but these guys know what they are doing. We have stayed here with our family and other friends at least once or twice a year for the last 8 years and we keep coming back.The rooms are well insulated from the bustle of the pub... More

Upon entering the room we were shocked by how bad it stunk. It smelled as if it had been a smokers room. The rest of the room was ok, looked pretty nice, actually, but the stink was unbearable. We had to keep the window open (view was not exactly amazing, but ok, it's a shopping mall) at all times. The... More
