Convenient location

Verified Resident

The location of the building is near to East and West Croydon station, tram station to Wimbledon, bus stop. The flat is warm enough during the winter and the glass windows are unique. The flats are more for professional workers.

Please tell us what you like and dislike about this area:

Is near the shopping centre.

Please share one thing (or more) which you wish you had known before you moved in:

If the price of rent includes the insurance cost in case of flooding.

Convinient Central located flat on quiet street

Verified Resident

The flat is centrally located 5 min walk to Croydon Centre or West Croydon Train Station and 10 min walk to East Croydon Station.

The flats are clean new builds and building management always keep the surroundings clean and nice. Would recommend to young professionals.

Close location to shopping and public transport to central London

Please share one thing (or more) which you wish you had known before you moved in:

For every extra Key Fob you get charged 60 pound and the boiler controls make no sense.

Good Afternoon Rosie,
Thank you very much for leaving us a positive review.
With regards to the key fobs, unfortunately we have to order these in from a security company and this is what they charge. However you can certainly access the building with your entrance code as well as your fob.
Please do not hesitate to get in touch with us on 5bedfordpark@wayoflife.com, where we can supply you with this code and further instructions on the control panels.

Best,
5 Bedford Park

Great experience for a first time tenant

Verified Resident

Overall I am very happy with the experience The Lansdowne has provided in the first 6 weeks of us living in the property. The only issues holding it back from being 5 stars is the issues around us moving in to the property advertised as brand new when it in-fact wasn’t. This was more disappointing than anything as we would have been happy to go into apartment 208 (which was offered) knowing it was new. Instead we moved into an apartment that wasn’t cleaned to a high standard, had soap and hair residing in the bath/shower area and had a few marks such as damage to one of a cupboards which was documented on our moving day. The previous tenant still has not stopped her post being sent to our address either so we are still receiving post which we have to hand over to building management to deal with.
Other than that building management has been extremely helpful and has made themselves available at any request and me & my partner look forward to the rest of the tenancy watching the community build up. The communal areas are a great place to have family and friends and the onsite gym is very well maintained.

Please tell us what you like and dislike about this area:

This is a prime location for anyone who works in the city. There are plenty of shopping locations as well as restaurants and bars in the surrounding area. There are travel links near-by which makes getting around the city/ in and out of the city very easy. Me and my partner also work very close by which allows for a very convenient work/social life balance.

Please share one thing (or more) which you wish you had known before you moved in:

Certain free to use facilities we were told about are not currently in use (such as the ice machine). We believe this is due to a small portion of the property currently being occupied but it was a slight disappointment to see it out of use during the summer.

Hi Rob,

Thank you for your feedback. Please do share your views on the design, we would love to hear about them.

We do send the appliance manuals and complete a tenant introduction when you move in but we appreciate there is a lot of information to take in, so please do not hesitate to ask us for further support.
