Service sells it

Verified Resident

The service here is really the selling point. The reception staff are super friendly, welcoming, and accommodating, and having them available 24/7 really sets this building apart from others in its caliber. The convenience of having one payment (rent + bills) and of not having to negotiate your own internet/electricity/water providers can’t be understated. The view from the rooftop is absolutely phenomenal. Tenants having pets should be mindful that the building itself doesn’t have a green space (aside from the roof terrace where pets are not allowed), but the nearest park is next door. Additionally, depending on the side of the building the flat is located, there might be limited privacy as it looks directly into the student housing across the road, which can be annoying in the daytime. The furnishing is nice, but leaves a something to be desired as it’s a little basic.

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

I’ve grown to love Bethnal Green as a neighborhood; it’s very convenient for access to the City and Dressage Court is under five minutes’ walk to the Central line. The immediate area is under constant development which means new bars and restaurants are opening constantly. I wouldn’t necessarily recommend the area to a family with young children as Tower Hamlets can be a little rough around the edges and it’s important to have your wits about you at night.

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

Relative to the size of the flat, the kitchens (which are open plan) don’t have a ton of counter space, so be mindful of that when bringing cooking equipment with you.

Happy tenants :)

Verified Resident

Overall the flat, location and experience is great.

The reception team are AMAZING.

The building is quite loud from the trains with the windows open though which is unfortunate.

The gym is set up great but as a female I don’t use it since the weights are set up for men (large, heavy squat bars with no lighter alternatives, no lighter weights (hand weights start at 5kg) which is too heavy for a lot of ladies to start with.

The flat itself and finishings are beautiful though, very happy living here.

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

Loud trains ,but very close to all amentities.

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

sleeping with the windows open at night when it’s hot is next to impossible due to the noise from trains

Easy peasy

Verified Resident

It’s great. The staff are particularly welcoming. The only downside is the building is incredibly hot in summer. We pay £15/mo for ‘cooling’, but I have no idea what cooling we actually get.

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

Seconds from the central line and a few minutes from other links and a major supermarket. 5-10 minutes from zone 1.

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

How poor the cooling is.

Amazing facilities, staff are all brilliant, would recommend to anyone

Verified Resident

The staff are absolutely incredible. They go out of their way being super supportive and are always friendly and very attentive. The staff make Dressage Court what is.

The building and facilities are brilliant. However the surrounding roads aren’t the nicest. Great transport links all over London.

Rent is over market rates for similar properties in the area though.

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

I like the easy travel links. I don’t like the drug addicts outside and noise.

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

That there were rooms with air con.

Lovely staff

Verified Resident

Great location with proximity to stations but also parks and gardens. Staff are amazing, friendly and so helpful.

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

Transport links are good due to being very close to Bethnal Green underground but also close to Whitechapel and Bethnal Green overground station for other options.
Bethnal Green gardens and Victoria park also close by for lovely open green space.
Unfortunately with the proximity to the train line and road it is very loud when opening windows and balcony doors!
Small but good selection of restaurants/cafes nearby for eat-ins or take away coffees! Small Sainsbury’s close by but large Sainsbury’s around a 10 min walk away which has everything you would want. Good walking distance to Shoreditch and Spitalfields (20-30 mins) so many more options open up!
Main road (Cambridge Heath Road) is fine – could do with a little TLC!

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

Building can get quite hot and is difficult to cool down, especially in the summer. Maybe to consider if your flat does not have comfort cooling.

Easiest rental process ever and great apartment

Verified Resident

Good sized apartments, great facilities. Very close to railways so can be quite noisy with doors open. Standard of furnishings is great and staff are really friendly and helpful.

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

Transport links are fantastic, enough bars and restaurants around. Immediate vicinity a bit run down.

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

Comfort cooking isn’t particularly efficient when it’s hot outside.

Smooth enjoyable experience from the very start

Verified Resident

The flats are very modern with stylish furniture. Facilities are top notch, the concierges are incredibly polite and helpful.

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

The good: 3 different stations within walking distance which is a huge bonus. A large Sainsbury’s and a Tesco Metro nearby. Good pubs, good restaurants, and Shoreditch is never too far away.

The bad: Heading westwards on Three Colts Lane, especially when cycling, is a bit of a horror show as there are loads of cab repair shops and the cabs like backing out onto the road without really looking.

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

The amount of storage space in the flats for books, cooking equipment etc. is quite lacking. Also the wardrobes basically only support hangers for clothes.

The Good Life at Dressage Court

Verified Resident

Me and my roommate recent moved in and everyday we get impressed with the cordiality and professionalism of the staff. The manager who we get in contact with is always helpful and available. For me, that’s what makes the biggest difference on living here. Also, the gym and the rooftop gives it an extra charm, but having someone receiving you with a smile at the front door changes my day.

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

The area is great and in close proximity to under and over grounds as well as many bus stations, just a 5 minute walk from good coffee shops and supermarkets and next to a beautiful park, having mentioned that, you do need to get to know the area before wandering alone because some streets can be a bit shady specially at night.

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

The train passes right next to the building but with the windows closed is barely noticeable, and a good surprise is all the great activities and events that the building plans for all the residents.

No big surprises, maybe one thing or another about the apartment itself, but nothing that couldn’t be fixed (and was, really fast).
