“Really great apartments close to trains”
Reviewed February 23, 2012

We had a great stay here in a very comfortable apartment. It's really handy for Bondi junction and the train station is close by.

Stayed here for 2 nights at the end of a months trip to Australia. Knowing Sydney quite well this place appealed to me for the location to Westfields and transport links and it didn't fail on that aspect. Westfields is literally next door and Bondi Junction train station is below the building.

Our one bedroom apartment was very spacious with full cooking facilities as well as a washer, dryer and dishwasher. Minimal amenities were included (cleaning cloth, washing up liquid, dishwasher powder). The apartment was also very clean and a good supply of towels and amenities in the bathroom.

Along with other reviews I would agree the "serviced" part of the title is a bit of a joke as you only get service on the 8th night. But this wasn't a huge problem for us really.

There was one massive downfall to the property and that was the huge construction site down below, I understand that they aren't responsible for outside works but a bit of pre warning or warning at check in would of been nice. We were woken every morning at about 6am with loud drilling.

I would consider staying here again if the price was right, it served its purpose for our last 2 nights.

We were holidaying with a family group and management located us in adjacent apartments - tick! We'd opted for the more costly Harbour view floors and the outlook didn't disappoint - great vistas of the Bridge, Opera House, CBD and the Harbour. The apartment had everything we needed and its location was terrific, with easy access to the train and Westfield just across the street.
Staff are friendly and helpful. The lifts struggle to cope with passenger volume during peak times but with a little patience you eventually get there.
Although the property has a "no party" policy it was clear when we arrived that our other neighbours had one in full swing (Saturday night = Party night). We let it go until sleep became impossible then called Security who responded promptly and shut it down on the spot.
Overall, this property was a real winner and we'd stay here again.

Nothing physically wrong with these serviced apartments. Although a little tired, the size and comfort of my two-bedroomed flat was more than adequate for two couples and small toddler. Kitchen was excellent and utility room worked well. Beds were comfortable and the position on top of the Bondi Junction bus and rail station and adjacent to the lovely Bondi Junction shopping mall was just ideal for my visit of almost two weeks. However, don't be fooled by the title 'serviced apartments' as there was little service to speak of! Apparently, my very good room rate did not qualify me for any more than once-a week service and this was really disappointing. Other complaints were a very poor air conditioning system that was programmed to only remain on for four hours at a time - clearly aimed as a cost-cutting exercise. This meant that if you went to bed at 11pm, you would wake feeling hot and sticky by 4am after the system had shut down and would be forced to get up, go to the lounge, and restart the system for another four hours. This smacks of penny pinching and is no advert for this property. There were other problems over the tough New Year weekend when the hotel is fully booked. Lifts were erratic and often out of order making it a long & crowded ordeal to simply get out of the building and there were times when the very expensive parking ($20 per night) was not available. Parking was also very cramped so beware if you have a car and you don't enjoy maneuvering in tight spaces! There is Internet access but at rip-off prices so get yourself a Vodafone broadband deal for one-third of what the hotel charges! This is the type of property that seems to enjoy such a good location that some attention to detail in management seems to be overlooked as it is constantly full with guests. It is though a perfectly adequate apartment complex with access to all of Sydney literally at your doorstep but it really needs refreshed management & a little less penny-pinching. It should be renamed the "Meriton partially-serviced apartments'!

Room Tip: Poor lieft service can mean long waits so a lower floor might be better for this.

Thanks for your review - Sorry to read we didn’t meet your expectations.
We have just undergone a full refurbishment in March 2012 - so all our 2 & 3 bedroom apartments have brand new furniture.

We opened in 2000 so this update has really enhanced the look & feel and we hope that you may be able to come back and see for yourself what a great place it is now.

We rented a 2 bedroom apartment for one night as it was quite cheap. Very good location for Bondi, Westfield shopping centre just across the road, plenty of shops, bars, restaurants and cinema. Nice apartment, plenty of space it seemed to have everything we needed along with a view!

We rented a 2 bedroom apartment for 4 days and were happy. The apartment was spacious and functional and had everything we needed. It was not luxurious but I did not expect it to be. Also it is not in the CBD which we realised so you need to catch a train into the centre which only takes 10 minutes. There is the big Westfield across he road so there is plenty of shopping nearby. If you want to walk out your hotel into the thick of everything this is not the place for you, but if you want good value for money then this is it.

We booked the harbour view Penthouse (2001) for a surprise birthday for my wife. I had arranged for our family to meet us here for special weekend. The Penthouse apartment is sensational. Really large, well appointed with a fabulous view through the floor to high ceiling windows. Lots of balcony space too.
Everything was going wonderfully until the neighbors booked in for a hens night celebration. Two shopping trolleys of booze followed. When we returned from dinner the noise and fighting including banging on our door grsdually got worse. As the strictly no partying policy was clearly displayed to be seen and it was now 1.30am we called security and after two visits some of the chaos subsided. Whilst this is disappointing it didn't spoil our stay.
But when a different set of neighbors booked in the following night playing loud music , banginging doors and yelling we had had enough!
When you book apartments of this quality and pay the prices charged knowing that there is a no party policy should be enough to ensure a trouble free stay. Unfortunately this was not the case. Even though security arrived promptly and did their job effectively you should not have to put up with such behavior.
Nice property, bad neighbours or bad luck?

Room Tip: Avoid weekend bookings with partys
