- Landlord is difficult to handle
- Landlord enters suites without notice
- Poorly managed, Sussex will only respond if you are firm and persistent
- Landlord will try to keep your damage deposit
- Infested with silverfish bugs (harmless but gross) and mice in basement
- Big dog feces everywhere outside
- Smells like mildew inside
- Doors are easier to open without a key than with a key (unsafe)
- Loud building (24/7 traffic and planes)
- Rent is high for small size of suites
- Black mould in washroom
- Closets do not fit hangers
- Limited laundry washers/dryers (usually broken too)
- Small laundry washing machine (only takes half loads)
- Water runs brown on most days

If you do decide to rent this apartment, make sure you take pictures of every square inch before you move in because they will try to keep your damage deposit no matter how clean you are. I also suggest installing a live camera that detects motion, because the landlord will enter your apartment without notice.

All apartments have their ups and downs, but save yourself the headache – this small loud dingy place is not worth it. I’ve only rented 3 other apartments, but the New Mount Royal Apartments are by far the worst. RUN!

Building is supposed to have a no party policy -- parties every weekend. We have been fumigated 2 times in less than 2 years for bedbugs. Hard to get any repairs done but that seems to be part for the course when renting. Windows are fairly new but drafty in the winter. Floors are like ice as the heat vents are in the ceiling rather than the floor so you have to keep the heat set high. I feel bad as I don't pay for heat but a person needs to keep warm. Rent here starts around 1000.00 for a one bedroom and I feel that is too steep due to drafty Conditions lack of closets - there is one in the bedroom and that is it. There are 6 washer and dryers for 4 buildings with 4 floors in each and they are very small. Washers in the laundromat are larger and cheaper. Very disappointed and will be moving at the end of our lease .

A precious review said "With all of the murders and suicides that took place in these apartments..."

What the poster doesn't realize is that the building was emptied out and over $6 million in renovations done to it. It's now a nice safe building.

It's mostly quiet, but there is aircraft noise. Frankly it's the poor quality of the sliding bedroom windows that lets the noise through. (All the windows are brand new.) The living room, which has a different kind of sliding window, is much quieter.

The heating and air conditioning and duct work has also been replaced. It has the best air conditioning I've ever encountered. Unlike my last apartment, every room gets cooled.

Since the building has central air and heating (I pay only for the fan to move the air around) and central water heating, my hydro bills are only around $35/month. That's with a computer running 24 hours a day.

It has lots of storage, an excellent gymnasium, new appliances, and a roof-top BBQ area.
