            The staff was very nice. Loved the apartment room I stayed in very neat, tidy and clean. Breakfast buffet was really good. Staff in kitchen where very nice and very helpful would gladly stay there again

          • Older travelers

            Location, value for money, under-cover parking.

            Having to open the balcony door, have range-hood fan on max, air conditioning on max when cooking toast, to avoid having the fire brigade arrive on our doorstep is TOTALLY RIDICULOUS!!!

          • Family with children
            9.6

            My reason for choosing the Quality Suites Pioneer Sands was a combination of price, location and quality. I had stayed in a Quality Suites in Bathurst when visiting my daughter at uni so this time I had an expectation of what this chain had to offer and I was not disappointed. It was a comfortable stay and location to the University was an easy drive (when we figured out the right route). The proximity to a great pub for dinner which was easy walking distance was a major plus. Even though it was rainy (stormy even) your receptionist who made the recommendation was kind enough to offer us an umbrella which was a necessary addition to our walk to & from dinner and kind offering which was very much appreciated. Breakfast was good and offered a lot of cereal choices but for a Continental breakfast I felt it was a bit expensive.

            I really liked the Quality Suites Pioneer Sands but I felt that the Continental breakfast was expensive at $18.00 per head for cereal & toast effectively. I got a much larger offering, including a hot meal option in addition, in an Adina in Germany for about $5 more.

            Spacious and very clean. It was very helpful to have a complimentary laundry facility. Location was good.

            Just a small point, we had to keep asking for some extra milk as only six tiny pots We're left each day. Sometimes the receptionist would suggest that we need to pay for the extra, however we did point ointment that when we collected extra the room service would only top up to six again so in effect we were not always getting over the amount. Trivial really. When we were in Manly we had a small complimentary carton each day so not made to feel awkward as it sufficed.

            Clean, comfortable, friendly. Good location. Easy parking.

            No room service or food vending machine.

            The staff, Warren and the other staff are exceptionally friendly. This is our second stay, for a family get together - we cant speak highly enough of Quality Suites Pioneer Sands - sure beats staying at the pub out the back which we did the previous night as Pioneer Sands was booked out - we had no sleep there due to rowdy guests' all night party. Pioneer Sands like a home away from home. thank you

            It was more than I expected, the room was very large and the view from the balcony over the mountains was perfect. I would definately stay there when I come to Wollongong overnight.

            The arpartment was clean beautifully decotated and comfortable. It was so relaxing and had all essential requirements one needs.

          • Single
            8.8

            I valued my free up-grade. Rooms were clean, nice and neat. Modern feel through-out the apartment. The whole building was consistently attractive.

          • Group of friends
            9.2

            Most things especially the welcoming attitude of staff and their helpfullness.

            Door on shower was on wrong side - should be opposite the shower head and taps. General quality of finish, especially tiling in the bathrooms was poor.

          • Family with children
            6.8

            Room good, location fine...

            Individual response from same employee re questions about price. Rather than " How can I help you" it was more "I think you have it wrong and what you are saying is not true." Not enjoyable.
