We stayed here for the weekend as my sister was getting married in Bulli We booked a 2 bedroom apartment which was sun filled and met most of our needs - my only complaints would be the living area & bedrooms were a little small and no laundry (although we knew no laundry before booking) but it was clean and...

I stayed here recently as I also required conference facilities. The conference room was large and had all the av equipment provided for a very reasonable price for 40 people. No restaurant and the room was nice. Ok for business and staff were very pleasant.

This hotel is in an easy location if you are doing things in the Wollongong area, although you really need a car if you are staying there. There is free secure parking which is good. It is also good value compared to other places in the Gong. The gym is well equipped. The only disappointment is that they do not... More

Used this place for a one week work assignment. Lovely studio apartment with a huge sun deck terrace on the third floor ( # 303 ). Could not find a fault. Super quiet, close to the beach, very friendly staff. Did not use any facilities, but they have plenty, even a spa. Parking is free in the secured parking garage,... More

I am a regular to the Gong and have stayed at a few places in the Wollongong CBD and the Pioneer Sands gives them all a run for their money. It is affordable (I saved $50 per night compared to places in the city which were only studio rooms), new and stylish and very comfortable. For just over $100 I... More

Stayed with a couple of mates, whilst visiting the region to watch our sons play baseball. Have to say was pleasantly surprised at home big the accommodation was. We each had our own privacy, room we were booked into had TV's in each room, 2 bathrooms, 3 toliets and a full functioning kitchen. Modern and new, with pleasant, informative staff,... More

I stay here on a semi regular basis. The rooms are comfortable and clean. Mini bar has the usual mix of drinks and snacks. It is a little further out from the main city so if you want to go somewhere you will have to drive. Breakfast is continental only and in my opinion expensive.

This is a really well run place. We stayed many nights and found the front desk staff to be excellent with the initial and many subsequent changes to our booking. Housekeeping was wonderful and always helpful. Car parking was easy and the single elevator speedy. Free use of a washing machine and dryer in the basement was welcome. Our king... More
