Pleasantly surprised that it has a full kitchen, dishwasher, oven, cooktop, pots and pans etc. Nice views and confortable. Secure underground carparking. Cooked my own dinner but had $15 continental breakfast on ground floor.

We stayed one night in a 1-bedroom apartment. Nice layout, spacious, nice sized balcony. Cleanliness: first impression clean, however, room service staff lacks attention to detail. I never saw a dirty electric kettle like here - that thing should have been discarded a while ago. Otherwise I didn't notice other things but you lose trust id you see something like...

I stayed here for a wedding. Check-in staff were friendly, in fact everyone was friendly. The room was great (stayed in a 1 bedroom apartment) with a full kitchen, dishwasher, fridge. I had a balcony which opened right up. In the mornings I saw the parachutes from Stuart Park. Air conditioning worked wonders. The only grip I have about this...

Staff are very pleasant and helpful. Pioneer Sands is located...

Great place, good staff, nice n quiet. Rooms clean, good bed, great kitchen facilities, breakfast good. Only one very small whinge, that's the card swipe for the garage, trying to stop half way down the drive, especially on a motor bike, can see where plenty of vehicles have not come away unscathed. Otherwise we enjoyed our stay

Great quiet, serviced apartments with plenty of space and a good size kitchen. No laundry though. A bit out of town but everything's about 15 minutes away. Breakfast is a bit ordinary but the breakfast pack in the room is fine for a quick bite. There is a bar on site too.
