Pretty nice place. Overall a joy to live here.
Feel safe walking home no matter what time of night. No hobbos, or unwanted guests.

Rooms are massive, laundry kinda crappy. Cheap and awesome rooms.

1 Roslyn Road is a great apartment. The suits are ENORMOUS, living in a two bedroom I could go without seeing my roommate the place feels so big!

In winter it is too warm, in summer it is cool. The apartment could have been cleaner upon moving in, but the land lord and sussex help us whenever we need them to! Aaron is dope.

The main issue with the apartment is the noise. The walls are paper thin. (First time living in an apartment and I am a light sleeper-- had to buy ear plugs and wear them every weekend). There is a lot of drunk loud people out and about on big nights out/Fridays.

If you want space, don't care about hearing your neighbours, and are wanting a GREAT location. This is the place for you!

Been living here for a year. The building is awesome in terms of the size of the suites, the location, and the architecture. It is also so nice to be right on the river with most windows full of leafy trees. The building is also solid construction and is the only place I've ever lived where I can't hear anything from my neighbours (assuming they aren't blasting a new subwoofer - had that problem only once)

If you are comfortable doing all maintenance yourself and living with the sketchiest electrical imaginable this is the place for you. Also do not expect the laundry machine to be functioning more than 80% of the time.

Managed by Sussex Realty Property Mangement in Winnipeg.

Such a great, spacious building but the caretakers are HORRIBLE. Basic maintenance (i.e. sweeping, mopping, changing lightbulbs) front foyer and stairs have been maintained maybe a handful of times in the past two years they've taken over. You should see the front entrance and stairwell during the winter months - disusting. I've even been tempted to clean up the place myself every week.

I often wonder what the caretaker's suite looks like in terms of cleanliness? Ugh. I don't want to know actually.

The property consists of 3 buildings - I also often wonder what state of grossness the other 2 buildings (beside the one the caretakers actually reside in) look like. These caretakers are useless. I think the only thing he's good for is working in his garage, unloading junk out of his truck, after coming back to the apartment after 9pm almost every single day. (And availability of caretakers? Ha, good luck.)

This is all too bad, because this property is a really great space and would look soooo much more appealing and welcoming if the caretakers (and Sussex) put in some more effort into the property.

Sussex, if you're reading this - get rid of these caretakers and screen future caretakers appropriately (i.e, make sure they're qualified to able enough to use a mop and broom at least once a week). Hell, I'll do it and I guarantee I'll do a better job.

Could be a great place if Sussex didn't cut corners in repairs or if they used professional people to repair damages to units. Lots of problems with the building. Leaking roofs, bathroom ceilings caving in.
Turn over of caretakers is questionable. Currently they have one caretaker who manages the 3 buildings. She has only been with the company for under a year, and is also considering leaving due to an overwhelming work load and a lot of safety hazards. However, that being said she has done the most of all caretakers to date to improve the interior and exterior of the building.
This caretaker tends to the needs of the tenants.
It's an ok place to live. Could be better, but then it could be worse.
We are moving out because we found something better in the same area for less rent.
Most all tenants would verify and vouch for the fact that this information is true.
