Raglan House – luxury living in central London

Verified Resident

The design of the apartment is fantastic and the property management team are great. There’s never a time that we have to solve any issues on our own regarding the property.
We have lived here for the last year without any trouble whatsoever and I have even recommended this place to my friends.

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

Area is great – quick access to the gym, Sainsbury’s, tube and railways

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

Excellent team – would’ve made my decision to move in much easier.

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

Excellent response time – the team are quick when they deal with any utilities etc.

Get Living Paradise

Design – very well designed and the interior is consistent throughout

Facilities – common room and storage access is well situated and helpful

Building management – 24/7 security providing help at whatever time needed

Property management – all workers are kind and extremely helpful

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

Shops, restaurants, gym and tube station only 1 minute from the building!

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

I wish I had known there was no parking – I had my car at first and had to sell it

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

Not much – I have everything I need.

Maybe the bedrooms could be slightly bigger but it is London!

Good

Verified Resident

Happy with service, all staff are very pleasant and professional. Design is a little generic but still nice. Some security staff can be rude. I am frequently asked to present my key when waiting for the lift which is excessive and not what I’d expect from a private development

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

Market and shopping centre

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

I wish I had known that you could not drink alcohol on the third floor

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

Very prompt and on hand, when repairmen come they are always professional and helpful

I would not recommend it for rental given how rent and poor experience for residents.

Design is decent, thought here are elements that could be improved. I would definitely not buy a property in this building given the standards of construction and number of faults.
Good community lounge area on the 3rd floor, some social events organised by management, not enough elevators for that amount of apartments.

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

Good location, fair concept about no deposit if you meet credit rating criteria, flexible notice period, however absolutely unprofessional management abusing residents rights . Although it is a relatively new building there are repairs and construction work happening all the time that disrupts residents living. Lots of foreign students living here rather than actual London residents which does not help to create a truly lasting community. High turn over of residents due to poor experience

Convenient, easy living in central London

Verified Resident

Really enjoying the lifestyle here – great views, staff and everything just works. Admin is minimal and a lot better than traditional tenant-landlord arrangements. Recommend this to all types of tenants – singles / students / young couples etc.

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

Not much – maybe too many students at times

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

Wish I moved earlier

Excellent building and services offered

Verified Resident

I love living here and I love everything the building offers from the concierge to the club room and even the Bringme boxes. Would highly recommend this apartment to anyone.
As a student, I’ve found this location to be perfect with a Sainsbury’s and gym a minute away.

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

Like the building but area seems sketchy at night.

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

Nothing, probably one of the best places I’ve lived.

Highly Recomended

Verified Resident

Get living apartments especially the Tantallon House is very cosy and located very close to any transportation. Apartments have very nice city view, especially London Eye. Also the staff is very helpful, and the app makes the maintenance very easy.
