Hotel Opening: Nightcap at Sandbelt Hotel
In the heart of the Melbourne suburb of Moorabbin lies the Sandbelt Hotel, now open as the 66th property to join the Nightcap Hotels family. The hotel has 33 fresh and modern rooms including family options. With golf courses and clubs in every direction, the hotel is aptly named after the Melbourne Sandbelt region. The area is a golfer’s haven, and equally appealing for those who may not be as enthusiastic about the sport, with the Melbourne CBD less than 25 minutes away and Bayside suburbs even closer.
Whether you’re visiting friends or family nearby or enjoying a trip to Melbourne like a local, Nightcap at Sandbelt Hotel offers quality accommodation that won’t break the bank.

Less than 15 minutes’ drive from Sandbelt Hotel, Sandringham Beach is the perfect place to spend a day on the sand. It’s a favourite of Melbourne locals, and for good reason; it has all the conveniences of being close to the city without the crowds from the beaches farther north. Insider tip: for a midday break from the sun and sand, be sure to check out the Sandringham Hotel for lunch with a view.
Melbourne is renowned for being a multicultural and artistic city, and there is so much to explore in the CBD. From graffiti-laden laneways to historical buildings, perfectly manicured parks and premium shopping precincts, there is truly something for everyone.
