I have been living at Rockcliffe Arms for 4 and a half years and my experience has been very positive. Only moving out because of leaving Ottawa, Management was always very helpful. There is a very friendly and nice atmosphere. The apartments are nice and big with large closets, the building is pet friendly and management organizes a lovely christmas party every year for the neighbours. The building is always very clean.

I really liked living at 124 Springfield and do recommend it strongly, it's a great place to live in.

I've had a pretty good experience at Rockciffe Arms so far.

Pluses:

1.The building super independent has been very responsive and understanding to anything which has come up so far or any questions I have had. She is very friendly and easy to talk to. The management threw a party for the tenants on the roof terrace to celebrate the building's anniversary. Looking forward to the Christmas Party in a few months if I'm in town for it.

2. The neighbourhood around Beechwood and New Edinburgh is great with most major amenities including groceries, restaurants, convenience stores etc. It is pretty close to downtown without feeling quite as crowded, is quieter and pretty safe if you would rather not deal with the late night crowd in the Market.

3. Despite not being on the transitway, transit is pretty good, with three buses that get you to the Rideau Centre in about 15 minutes.

4.You get more space than what you would for a similar price directly downtown. Some of the apartments I checked out directly downtown were half the size for the same price.

5.Tenants are generally pretty friendly and quiet. I have occasionally been able to hear the TV or radio next door through the wall, but it wasn't too loud.

Small downsides:

1. No individual unit control over heating (bigger downside with the heatwave we are having right now). AC also costs extra during the summer.

2. Water pressure in the bathroom is fairly low, especially with hot water. I enjoy taking baths, so it can take a while longer than average for the tub to fill up. Water pressure during showers is also a bit low.

3. The wood floors are laminate, which isn't quite as durable as actual hardwood or higher-end engineered wood. Be careful when moving furniture around. Also probably worth investing in some area rugs.

4. Not relevant to me since I don't own a car, but parking is limited.

After a horrendous experience at my last building, partly due to my own naivety and lack of research, I decided to shop for my new building by first looking to Property Management Companies. The one I could find in Ottawa with mostly-positive reviews was Osgoode. After visiting a handful, and deciding on the Rockcliffe Arms, I can say I am very happy with my choice. A well maintained old building with spacious apartments, great staff, quiet neighbours (mix of young professionals, young families, and elderly), and fantastic neighbourhood.

However there are some three issues which may deter future renters which I believe are fair to know prior.

1. Each unit does not regulate their own heating. The building does keep it very warm, you will never be too cold, but to find the right temperature you often find yourself cracking the window just the right amount to let in enough cold air, but not too much.

2. Parking isn't great. It is limited and tight, with about half of the spaces stationed up a hill away from the building. The path to these spots is well maintained in the winter, but some could find it a trek depending on ability.

3. No outlets in the bathroom. (Old building = probably used to have outlets in the light fixtures). This doesn't bother me at all, but have had some female friends comment.

Management said they didn't have any bugs. When I moved in found cockroaches in apartment. I moved out in a few months.
