It feels like I live in a hotel!

Verified Resident

A truly impressive spot to live, friendly staff, beautiful people.
From gym classes to private cinema showings, a party room, snooker table, pool, sauna, team, outdoor jacuzzi and valet parking.
There’s not much else you really need on your doorstep.
I can walk along the river to Battersea park or Vauxhall.
Easy easy

Please review the location of this development:

I live on top of an enormous Waitrose, there is a market downstairs every Saturday and an insane breakfast spot called District.
I dislike the noise of the road and that I can see there will be a building that will go up in front of me and partially block my view of the river.

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

It gets very hot in my flat and the comfort cooling takes a long time to kick in.

Great amenities

I went to visit a friend who lives there and the pool, gym and cinema are amazing. The flat was also beautiful with great views of the river. The cinema has lots of comfy sofas and a big selection of films to watch…it was the perfect Sunday evening.

It is all about the facilities

We chose to live here because of the location but also the facilities that Embassy Gardens has to offer. There is a pool, gym and sauna – we don’t find them crowded or hard to access (gym can often be empty if you find the right time!) and they are beautiful, love the ground floor pool looking out onto gardens! We use the Lounge quite often – for a bit more space outside of our apartment when meeting friends or sometimes if there is an international match on tv or watching the winter olympics, it feels like being back at college in the dorm but more grown up! They are great about putting on socials and events – we went to the social at the embassy recently and it was great to see this incredible building and meet some neighbours in a new setting up close.

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

It is better than I expected! I worried that the facilities would be over crowded by they really are not. I was also concerned that as it was on a quite busy road and set back from the river it would lack the ‘beauty’ of some other developments but it has so many internal views and aspects. Love it

Use all the amenities as they are worth it

The architecture and design is so well thought out – small details like the lifts are pretty! Balconies are designed to share light – so lovely in the summer and protected in the winter. It is all the amenities that also made this development stand out for us – whilst we don’t use them all (gym!) – it is wonderful to make use of the communal places and invite friends over to pretend you are having a spa day! Excited about the skypool..!

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

We initially felt a bit shy about hanging out in the communal areas, I don’t know why but when you aren’t used to living in a development it can feel a little strange. Once we did we actually met lots of neighbours and have formed friendships – I have a friend who I regularly swim with and my partner often times his commute with a guy he met in the gym – so I wish I had known to embrace things earlier.

Community living

Eg have sorted out the lifestyle and are building a community – something other developments appear to be lacking. I used to live in a building with five flats and never knew my neighbours or those on my street but the communal areas and events here bring everyone together.

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

It wasn’t active when I moved in but they have a great instagram account @embassygardens which share events and stories behind the building as well as the lives of tenants. Great to follow if you want to be part of the community rather than just live there.

Movies

The cinema is the best secret on earth and plays lots of classic old movies – cosy and personal and a great way to make friends with neighbours.
