WestCity Reviews

“The flat is lovely. I got a great view of the London Eye from my balcony which is amazing. The flat is modern, and the space is alright for London. Not too spacious but just as any flat in central. The underground parking is brilliant, and it is included with the flat. Traffic is the only bad thing I could think of. Building management has been great and we got a lovely concierge.” – Anonymous, Verified resident at West End Quay

Amazing view of central London

The flat is lovely. I got a great view of the London Eye from my balcony which is amazing.
The flat is modern, and the space is alright for London. Not too spacious but just as any flat in central.
The underground parking is brilliant, and it is included with the flat.
Traffic is the only bad thing I could think of.
Building management has been great and we got a lovely concierge.

 

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

It is so central it is great. It is easy to get anywhere. It’s London but it feels quite safe. It is very convenient because of the shops too. Everything you need is nearby.

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

We just moved in and noticed there is no broadband, so we will have to sort that out to connect everything,

How has the building management responded to any problems or issues you have raised:

Until now building management has been very helpful and replied very promtly to any issues.

Amazing water view

We got a very nice balcony and view. The best is we are near water, which is very nice. Not all flats got balconies which is good to know.
The flat is modern and the size is not bad for been London. The boilers are not too good to be fair; everything is electric.
I think the design could be better. The 3rd bedroom is quite small so we just use it as a studio.
There is a 24 hour concierge which is very good. The building has an underground garage with a space for each flat which is great and very safe.
It can be a bit noisy at times but you would expect that in central London.
We did not really move in here because of the building, but because of the location and the balcony with its view.
A good thing is the building manager is very good as it is not agents.

 

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

We like it is very central, and only 10 minutes away from marble arch. To be fair one of the reasons why we chose to live here was the location.
Transport is fine. The area has become very busy now. There is a lot of traffic.
We got a lot of shops, restaurants, cafes, etc, nearby which is good. There is a lot of life.
It is not 100% safe, but it is not bad for such a busy area. An issue is there are some gangs from an estate down the road. And also some Romanian beggers hang around Tesco. The bar next to us is quite noisy.
It is just that the area has changed a lot in the last 10 years.

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

I wish I had known about how over time the area would change, as there is a different atmosfere and there used to be more wildlife.

If there is one thing you would change about your flat or property what would it be:

It is all very high spec in the building. I think it is just that the area has changed quite a lot since 2003 when we moved in.

Had some repairs and updates to do but my landlord was very understanding and kind about it and never refused to do what had to be done

Balmoral apartment in West End Quay is a high end development with a lot of modern amenities. It is a very secure building along with a concierge. The building has central heating as well as cooling. Outside the building is a newly built floating garden on the river which makes for a beautiful relaxation area

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

It is a very busy area. Edgware road never sleeps. It can be both good or bad depending on the person. You can find all kinds of stores and restaurants. Edgware road and Paddington stations are well connected

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

The concierge leaves at 10 pm. Try not to have a problem after that. (there’s another concierge at adjacent property that can help after that though)

Great location

The flat is very modern, well equipped, and everything of good quality. It could have been bigger, but after all it’s London.
The underground garage is great.
I have no balcony, but my view is actually nice. I can see the London eye and gherkin from my flat.
I have never had any issues with building management. The concierge is great and very helpful.

 

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

There are great shops around, and dining options are very good.
The location is so central it is very good travel to get anywhere.
The only bad thing is it is very noisy. I can even hear stuff from the 10th floor.
A good thing is it is very safe.

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

I knew everything before I moved in so there were no surprises.

How has the building management responded to any problems or issues you have raised:

I have never had an issue. The concierge and agency helped a lot everytime I needed help with something.
