    Comfortable serviced apartment for a family trip

    Spacious and comfortable serviced apartment for a family. We were able to enjoy the comforts and conveniences of home during our stay here. Spacious bathroom facilities and full service kitchen. The only thing that could've made it better would be better linen on the beds, the ones we had were not quite crisp and a bit worn.

    A hidden gem in the northern suburbs of Wollongong

    Quality Suites Pioneer Sands is an excellent property situated in a rather unlikely location in the northern Wollongong suburb of Towradgi. We agree with the comments of previous guests; it's superb. Quality Suites Pioneer Sands is probably best suited to people arriving by road but public transport doesn't need to be ruled. There is a local bus (8 into town and 3 from Wollongong) that stops almost at the door and the railway station at Towradgi is an easy walk - no more than 10 minutes. But please note most trains to and from Sydney don't stop at Towradgi. A breakfast service is offered but we found the local cafe just up the street to be a delightful alternative. Clubs and other eating establishments are fairly close by. The shopping centre at Fairy Meadow (supermarkets &c) is about five minutes' drive. The view from Towradgi beach is wonderful, especially in the morning. Quality Suites Pioneer Sands is highly recommended. You won't be disappointed.
