3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2013

We had an Ocean View Room which was spacious, quiet and had a great view. My only issue was the quality of the couch. The vinyl was peeling off over a significant portion of the couch. In a room that costs $295 p/nt , which by the way is more expensive than the Sydney Hilton (George St) cost us the night before, should not have a couch that was of this standard.

The rooms are beautifully presented, the bathrooms lovely and clean with fabulous pulsating hot showers. The Staff are lovely and friendly and very helpful. Breakfast was lovely, I totally suggest getting the full buffet breakfast, as the hot food on the menu is divine!

The room had double doors to the balcony which meant no noise from the street. We had a view of the ocean as we were on the side street. It was lovely!

Ocean View room we had for our wedding night had a brilliant view. Staff very helpful and friendly. Good clean room with plenty of space. Pub food was good. Just be aware we went back for a drink after our wedding and the bar shut early at 11:30pm on a saturday night. Overall we were very happy and will definitely return

Room Tip: The view from the Ocean View rooms is definitely worth paying the extra for

The hotel is located in a great location to the beach and restaurants. Our request for 2 beds was granted to us and we were booked into a room facing the main road. The traffic noise is quite loud but they've installed 2 sliding doors on the balcony and it cuts out all the noise! The amenities were of high quality (beds very comfortable and bathroom very clean and big). I would stay here again. The one thing that stopped me rating this the highest was we were in a corner room. There are these high windows near the ceiling that run the length of the room with no blinds or curtains. At 5.30am the sun started rising and by 6.30 the room was flooded in light. Impossible to sleep after that and we had been to a wedding the night before so needed the room to sleep.

Room Tip: Corner rooms bring in too much light early morning....suggest you ask for a non-corner room. Hopeful...

Thank you for your feedback on your recent stay with us! It is pleasing to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us and found the location to be suitable.

All of our rooms have the double sliding doors which are fantastic at blocking any noise out. With regards to your corner room having a panel of high windows, please note that only the four corner rooms on level two have these frosted glass windows. Some of our regular guests have a preference for these rooms as they have more natural light, whilst others prefer rooms without the additional windows.

We hope to see you again should you be passing through Narrabeen, and at time of booking simply request to not be allocated a corner room. I have also noted this preference on your profile for any future stays with us.

I recently spent 2 nights at the Hotel Sands Narrabeen and was very happy with the location, views and room. The room was clean, large bathroom, 2 queen beds and a balcony with stunning views. There is a bit of noise from the Pub downstairs but once the double glass doors are closed, it wasn't much bother. I would stay here again!

Room Tip: Book a beach front room - the sunrise & sunsets are stunning!

I travelled with my 83yo mother and specifically asked for 2 single beds when I booked the hotel through whatif, upon arrival we were given a kingsize bed, when I asked at reception if they could please change our room to one with 2 single beds I was told that I would have to pay and extra $40 to do so. I ended up sleeping on a vinyl lounge which to say the least was very very uncomfortable and very hot. The Hotel it self in is a great spot and the bistro has great meals

Thank you for your feedback during your recent stay with us! It is pleasing to hear that you enjoyed our location and meals in our bar & bistro area.

With regards to special requests for bedding, it is always best to check or book directly with the Hotel rather than booking via last minute websites where availability may be limited. As a room with 2 x single beds was unavailable upon arrival, a room with a king size bed and sofa bed was offered to you. Or alternatively for an additional $40, an upgrade to an Ocean Suite overlooking the spectacular Narrabeen beach was offered which had 2 x queen beds.

We look forward to welcoming you back to Quality Hotel Sands again some time!
