We enjoyed our stay in one of the one bedroom apartments, on the second floor at the Pioneer Sands. The apartments are certainly spacious. The bedroom is huge, with king sized bed, plenty of cupboard space and an enormous ensuite. The living area has a well equipped kitchen, dining table/chairs, comfy lounge suite and TV. All the furnishings feel very... More

Stayed here for 3 nights and was not disappointed with anything, great value and service. Highly recommended, we arrived late and there was plenty of parking. Food and a drink was available from local pub behind complex and had private access. Very quiet and great position.

Great location ... Only 10 minutes tops to the city. Excellent room with everything you need.

There is a great outdoor pool the kids would love. I found the gym quite a good one, even though it was limited in the weights area. Everything is sparkling new. The one bedroom unit had plenty of room and a very functional kitchen. That is important as eateries close by are very limited. Stock up with supplies and enjoy... More

Stayed one night. Suite very roomy and all facilities were great. Very modern, but no real view due to position. Secured undercovered parking available and meals available through a back gate at local hotel on weekends when hotel's cafe not opened.

We stayed a in a one bedroom apartment. It was clean and quiet and spacious. Dishwasher is a bonus if staying longer. There is a very nice breakfast area if you don't want to utilise the kitchen. Good size shower. Great hotel via the back of the property.

What a lucky choice this was! Beginning with security parking and a welcoming smiles at reception, our little midweek retreat could not have been more comfortable.

Nice stay with great facilities. Rooms a little on the older side and we did have to change rooms initially because the first one was a little dirty. A little out of the city centre which is why the value is better. Worth a stay if you have a car.
