“Nice place and yes it is opposite the ocean”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

A little hard to find if you do not know the area well. Check in is via the underground carpark - so a little unconventional and the hours are limited so check before you book. Check in was smooth and service was friendly. I was offered a secure underground car space for $15 a night. It was really a separate garage and very secure.

Apartment was facing the ocean (and Pittwater Road, which is noisy) and was very modern with a full kitchen and lounge area. All very nice and comfortable.

Bed was also good and the bathroom well appointed and again modern.

This is a serviced apartment so the room is not cleaned each day.

You will need need a car to get around as it is quite a way to the city. There are however some shops and cafes nearby if needed.

I found this a good alternative to a motel and very comfortable. And yes, I would stay again, however I would book at the back of the apartment block and not pay extra for the ocean view as I found the road outside too loud.

Room Tip: Stay at the back away from the road as it is quieter.

We were given a room the stunk, was not clean, toe nail clippings on the floor in front of the lounge, razor left in bathroom that our kids found, stains all over carpet, mould in shower, kitchen not clean, range hood looked like the fat was going to drip down off it. We'd asked for a first floor room and were given ground floor. When we spoke with reception about getting another room as the one they'd given us was unacceptable and not what we'd booked and paid for she didn't care. She was more interested in twirling her hair around telling us that was all we could have.
The pool was nice but the pool area was not clean evident by the band aides that laid beside the pool our entire stay.
When getting the kids and bags out of the car a cleaning lady came past with her cleaning trolley and wheeled it straight over the top of some of our bags. When I asked her to stop she looked at me and grinned than kept going.
Completely rude, unclean, over priced completely disappointment.
Do not stay at this hotel.

Our family stayed at these beautifully located apartments at Collaroy. I also found them to be dirty, managers just need to hire better cleaning staff. The apartments were roomly and had all you could ask for. Location great, across the road from Colloroy Beach and short walk to shops, restaurants and movies. Great walk to Long Reef. Car parking is very difficult if you have a family car. Roof gardens also in need of a better clean. Rubbish system in garage appalling.

Room Tip: Ocean view is lovely. Ask for clean unit. Parking spots are small and hard to park large vehicles.

Another great stay at Bellagio, this time we stayed for six nights, and had an absolute great time. Once again the location was great, staff were really good and friendly, and the rooms have just been refurbished. We really enjoy staying at Bellagio, and have already booked in a penthouse in February.

Had fantastic experience at The Bellagio by the Sea. Location is impressive as it is just across the road from the beach. We stayed in a non ocean view 2 bedroom apartment, I rang ahead as I was concerned with all the negative reviews about the cleanliness(as my wife is a clean freak) and the room was very clean and well appointed. The location was brilliant as we could walk to any number of places for our morning flat whites and also an IGA for basic supplies for the week. The bakery a block away is amazing, with some of the best pastries I've ever had, but be patient as this bakery is always packed and their coffee is decent as well, The kids enjoyed the pool and the in the complex and being indoor was good as we did have a couple of cloudy days. Plenty of dinner options that are walking distance and Alimento does an amazing pizza. The only problem I had and I always have one as no-one I believe can be perfect is that there was no second TV in the master bedroom and I found the couch a bit uncomfortable but the kids liked that it was "soft". Overall we as a family were very pleased with our getaway and we hope to stay again next summer. Thank-you Bellagio !!

Stayed at the Bellagio By the Sea Dec 28 for one night - So dissapointed! These apartments have so much potential, perfect location opposite the beach and shops. Utterly filthy! I booked this hotel Dec 15 directly with the hotel, by the afternoon, I had an email saying that the total amount for our stay had already been debited! When we arrived the girl at the desk was polite and helped us by finding a car space that our vehicle would fit into! When arriving to our room we were greeted by a stale smell, On placing bags down on a dirty floor, i see the dining table has crumbs all over it, the floor has cereal spilt on it the loung has a huge stain that is still wet.
I was pretty concerned and looked at the bath rooms to see stains all over the toilets (urine), the floor was sticky and the basin drain was - yuk! Anyway, there were numerous other issues that are too many to go into , but I think you see my point. Please Bellagio by the sea, get in some cleaners!!!!!!!!!!

Room Tip: Room out back have no view, but not as noisy

We have been staying at Bellagio when in Sydney for several years. However, since the present manager took over we have noticed a severe decline in standards and conditions at the apartments. The manager is rude and dishonest; the rooms are quite dirty and dusty; one bed was very uncomfortable (with springs sticking into our backs). We are very disappointed and will not be returning. We will also be informing our network of friends, family and colleagues about our experiences at Bellagio and recommending that they find alternative accommodation.

Room Tip: Stay elsewhere!
