Having to go to Wollongong for a wedding we looked around for suitable accommodation. Pioneer Sands was the only 4 star accommodation that had a bedroom suite available. The day before we arrived we had a call from the hotel confirming we were still going to arrive, which was a nice touch. We arrived at noon and the receptionist was... More

Didn't notice till I got home, tried to call them but the receptionist said they'll give me a call, never ended up happening.-_- wouldn't recommend leaving valuables around at all!

We were treating my elderly mother to a scenic drive along the Sea Cliff Bridge and through the lovely countryside down to Berry. There was little upmarket accommodation in the Illawarra region offering two bedroom suites. Pioneer Sands looked fine and scored fairly good reviews so we booked, asking for a quiet suite at the rear, away from the road... More

A few minutes drive out of the hear of Wollongong this hotel is in a modern complex and caters well for larger groups of 4-5. The apartment was large and very clean and comfortable. The service from reception is exvellent. The buffet breakfast was fresh and had a good variety.

We loved our stay here! such a treat. Perfect quiet location but very close to the CBD. Great parking facility underground. Such luxury for the price. For our honeymoon elsewhere we paid double (NSW) and the room was not half of this. Such a little apartment: new kitchen new bathroom comfortable bed air con tv in room tv in lounge... More

Our room was on the 3rd floor & upon opening door we were impressed with how clean & fresh the room was. Bed lovely & comfy, my only... More

We stayed three nights in a 2-room suite at the Quality Suites Pioneer Sands. As our daughter was staying on the pull-out sofa bed, we wanted to close the door to our bedroom, but the air conditioner was in the living room and not in the bedroom. So door remained open and none of us slept well because of the... More

Either the reviews got our expectations too high, or maybe the advertising of a one-bedroom efficiency set us up for disappointment! The room was clean and spacious, with a balcony overlooking the road. However, the furniture was sparse- a computer table doubled as the dressing table, and also had the only power point other than in the bathroom to boil... More

Had a one bedder but it faced west (car park view) and got so much afternoon sun it was unbearable until the air con kicked in. The bedroom needed longer still to cool down. Condition of the room was ok.
