Reading some of the other reviews I was expecting something awful, but it's not that bad. It is quite old and has been left to go for many years without any updates including the furniture. However, it was clean enough, the bathrooms were clean, the sheets and towels were clean. Yes some of the windows were dirty, the balcony not very clean and the hallways very sad looking but this didn't affect our stay. The best thing about it is it's position, right across from Mona Vale beach. There are cafes nearby. The apartments are very spacious. It would be a brilliant place if they gave it a makeover. As it is, it is an adequate enough and would suit both short and longer term stays.
