Milson Serviced Apartments
Reviewed March 27, 2012

I travel to Sydney regularly for business, unfortunately my company decided to use Milson Executive for my last trip. I've requested that they never do again. The apartment was filthy and noisy and the staff were rude and aggressive. The experience is the worst I've ever had as a seasoned business traveller.

I stayed two nights within a harbor view room whilst in Sydney on business, I would highly recommend these apartments great location, a lovely walk over the harbour bridge to the rocks only three minutes to the train station, and five to Luna park,
hey you may even run into some Home and Away celebrities

Room Tip: Pay the extra for harbor views you'll reap the reward

We stayed in few hotels/apartments during our stay in Sydney, so far The Milsons (Milsons Executive Apt) is the most practical place in term of location, budget & view. We booked 1 bedroom apartment with Lavender Bay view for 10 days & it was a good stay. Perhaps it is depend on the room you choose as our previous stay at apartment across the street (different hotel) was bad because it was district/street facing, very noisy. We were lucky to find this unit at the last minute.

This unit is nicely furnished, self contained, complete kitchenette, washing machine, dryer, comfortable bed, balcony & more. The best part is the view of Lavender Bay & the Harbour Bridge. The building has good security, parking lot, swimming pool & gym. Good location, next to train station & ferry wharf, only 1 stop to CBD. Bus stop, shops, deli, Luna Park, restaurants & pubs are stroll away. You can picnic under the bridge with Opera House, Harbour Bridge & CBD view. You can walk through the bridge to Circular Quay within 15-20 minutes. Lovely walk with breathtaking view. There is also internet upon request (with fee). Although Luna Park is just next door, it was not a problem with the location of our unit.

There is only 1 thing that we are unhappy about was the housekeeping service. We paid $85 for weekly cleaning fee & the only thing the lady did was changing the towels & bed covers. She did not wipe the coffee table & dining table. glass/cup stains were all over. The floor was not vacuumed & there were dust & hairs everywhere after 1 week. This was a ripped off.

We wouldn't mind to stay here again next time but the housekeeping job needs to be taken seriously. It is better to stay in North Sydney with CBD view than staying in CBD with North Sydney view. Plus, North Sydney is more relax, less busy than CBD & it's only 1 stop away to CBD by train or ferry.

Room Tip: Choose room with view

My company books this one bedroom apartment, so there not much choice in the matter.

Rooms do vary slightly in quality and furnishings, as I suspect they are independent owned and leased by Milsons Executive Apartments. The rooms I have had have always been very comfortable and clean.

My biggest complaint is noise from neighbours. The walls have very poor acoustic insulation, and this has been a problem on my last two visits. Being woken up after midnight is not pleasant. I guess you could ask to be moved to a different room. Some apartments are owner occupied in this building.

If you are on the Luna Park side, you will also have to ensure the noise from Luna Park at night, although this does stop at a reasonable hour.

Internet access is WIFI by a third party provider. I had good Optus wireless broadband coverage on my last visit (contrary to a stay at another location where the Optus broadband was unusable for Skype audio, let alone video)

There are positives of this serviced apartment:
Great location; train close (you can use the train from the airport to the hotel); walk to North Sydney; minimart next store, groceries at North Sydney; pub and some more eating establishments at Kirribilla five minutes walk. Secure car parking available.

2 stays, first good but second terrible. Broken and chipped flower vase, bathroom shower not working and argumentative manager. Good location though and close to train station.

I stayed here in a family group with young children. The views from our apartment were amazing even though we were facing away from the City. The couple who greeted us and ran the place couldn't have been more friendly and helpful.

The apartment itself was very quiet and the beds were very comfortable. However, it was starting to look a little tired and dated. I believe they're in the process of renovating the rooms, so it's probably a bif of pot luck which one you get.

Overall though, we were happy with the room and there was no complaints from the kids.

We arrived and weren’t sure where the reception desk was so we called to find out. We should have taken it as a sign since as soon as we called we received some bad attitude. After checking in a guy took us up to show us the room and talked for at least 20min about his day and what he was up to! The place was very spacious and nice however the windows were so dirty we could not enjoy the view. Also, there were stains on bathroom floor that looked like urine, and the kithcen appliances were filled with crumbs. For the price of this apartment it really wasn’t very well taken care of. We also payed an extra $175 as a cleaning fee. Cleaning fee???!
