Milson Serviced Apartments
Reviewed February 12, 2010

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???!

We booked the place because there were three adults and we needed the space to spread out as well as the potential for an amazing location at a fair price.

We were not disappointed, except in a couple of small areas.

First up is the good stuff. We opted for a 'partial bridge view', one-bedroomed apartment. Well, the 'partial' was amazing. We were positioned so that we could see under the bridge to Circular Quay, 80% of the Western side of the bridge pretty well (including watching the trains as they made their way to Milsons Point, which is a 5 minute walk from the apartments. They are also about the same time to the ferry stop at Milsons Point too, one stop away from circular quay.

You cannot see the Opera House from here, but the view is absolutely spectacular as the photos show on their website - you even get to see the illuminated bits of Luna Park too, just below your woindow, making for a great panorama

Most days there are cruise liners at Circular Quay too and a highlight is when they move them round to the dock at Darling Harbour and they pass under the bridge itself.

As for the apartment, they are excellent except that they are a little dated; the windows could do with a clean - especially with the view (though in our apartment there was a balcony, so the photos were OK) and there is no real facility for internet access (they say you might be able to borrow a modem from the offices up the road, but that was for a $50 rental, so I didn't bother).

The location is excellent also for the train and ferry access to other sights and sounds. You can be at the opera house in 20 minutes and even at Manly in 45. There's a small and varied selection of good restaurants the other side of the station in Kirribilli Village.

All in all, except for the couple of small quibbles, great value and perfect location.
