Quality Hotel Sands

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Overall good. Rooms ok. Bathrooms great. Carpet on room was old. Great service. Nice beautifull beach and restaurant nearby. Lobby so so. Free garage under the buildibg for parking car was great incl elevator to hotel.

Room was clean neat and tidy - staff were helpful and the food was good. Location is amazing! The only issue I had was with their own online booking as it would not accept two night booking and kept saying enter the dates so I booked it through a third party.

Best things: rooms are surprisingly quiet for being on Pittwater Road. Close as you can get to the beach. Convenient to shops and restaurants. Pub & bistro downstairs. Free parking. Not so great things: worst breakfast ever, go to a cafe down the road. Some staff with zero care factor. Rooms are becoming dated & require some tlc & a really good clean. Good outweighs the bad here though, a very nice place to stay.

Had a great stay, beach view, excellent helpful staff at reception and housecleaning. Meals at the bistro were good value fresh and tasty, also great service from the food and bar staff. Would highly recommend the Sands Narabeen. Voice in the lift quite anoying, perhaps could update to an Aussie voice.

Room was clean and comfortable, opposite beach, nice view out to ocean. Road in front was noisy but doors were double glazed so did not affect sleep. Handy to some nice cafes and restaurants. I would stay again if needed accommodation in the area.

I had a great stay and would recommend this hotel. Lovely location across from Narrabeen beach. Staff were very helpful. Rooms are large, light, clean and comfortable. The only thing that detracts is the bar underneath, so rooms can be noisy until late, and smoke from people smoking in the outside area of the bar drifts up towards the rooms which is unpleasant - unclear why there is still smoking in that area as there appear to be "No Smoking" signs everywhere.

Rooms ok but noise unbearable on the weekend in the ocean front rooms which are directly above the dance floor of the pub. Unless you like ac/dc at 12.30am that is. Location good though the pub is very tired and not appealing for breakfast as there are much better options across the street.

Had a good stay was a bit upset with the food and staff were really good about it and stuff were so nice and always making sure you were ok and always had a smile on there face which I loved very happy

Great location. Basically on top of a Pub but completely separate. Food is excellent and quality hotel. Room excellent with water views. Some room s face directly to beach. Nice cafes and close to lake as well

Must be approaching 10 stays at the Sands and, as always, everyone one is most enjoyable, primarily due to the friendliness of the reception and housekeeping staff. Top marks to them all. The fruit and newspapers at reception are appreciated and really, we have no complaints..........except one! I am not sure who is reading this but if you have never used the new renovated lift at the Sands, please do so. The 'voice' saying that the door is opening, the door is closing, the ground floor, the forest (sic) floor, is highly annoying. In an enclosed space of two square metres, I do not need to be told three times that the door is opening! Truly the most annoying lift 'voice' I have ever heard!! She has to be gagged! Anyway, many thanks again for the great stay (lift voice excluded!).
