Brilliant for families!

Review Date Sep 2019

As a father raising a family with many youngsters, this development fits my criteria of what a good home needs. The brilliant security that operates within this area ensures the highest level of safety for its occupants, which is very assuring for me! The cleanliness of the development is also an amazing luxury. With all the buildings surrounding the area recently built, everything feels new and luxurious. It’s location, situated in Central London means that local amenities and facilities are within a few minutes reach, with a variety of transport links all close by!

The only complaint I’d have about the development is the unreliability of the intercom that tends to stop working at times, making it difficult to access the building.

 

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

Likes:
– The security within the building is brilliant, an essential aspect when raising a family.
– Cleanliness of the development is top notch due to the area and building being brand new.
– The location of the site means it’s very local to amenities, facilities and transport links.
– Transport here is brilliant; there are many different options and transport comes very frequently.

Dislikes:
– Sometimes the intercom doesn’t work properly so it takes a bit of time to access the building.

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

There isn’t really anything I wish I’d known before moving in.

5 stars isn’t enough..

Review Date Sep 2019

This development is great overall as a result of its beautiful surroundings. Being situated in the bustling environment of central London, you are always close to all the local amenities and popular destinations of this great city! The scenic surroundings of tall office buildings and lush green spaces combined with easy accessibility to the best transport London has to offer, living here is a dream. In terms of the interior of the development, the aesthetics of the properties are top notch and the lifts within are very good! So far in the time that I’ve lived here, I’ve had no dislikes.

 

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

Likes:
– The entire development and surrounding area is very new with great aesthetics!
– The area has a great amount of green spaces which is lovely during the summer.
– The lifts within the development operate very well!
– There are great transport links very locally.

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

I wish that I knew about the alarm within the building that does go off quite frequently. It’s pretty distracting due to the loud noise.

Scenic, secure.. splendid!

Verified Resident

Review Date Sep 2019

What really stands out about this development is it’s beautiful surroundings that create an almost dream-like living space. From the stunning tall buildings to the lovely interior aesthetics of the developments apartments, this establishment generates a very surreal living landscape. The area is mostly occupied by offices with many young professionals moving in and out of buildings at all hours of the day, which makes me feel quite safe and secure living in this area.

There are a few issues that I personally have with the development though. First of all, the green space outside is pretty but doesn’t feature anything that’s kids-friendly, something that a great development should have in order to be more suited to families. Also, the development tends to get really hot during the summer months and with the exclusion of air conditioning within the building, this problem gets elevated further. In addition to the heat problems, the management do not grant permission for the installation of air conditioning, which means this problem isn’t solvable at all.

 

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

Likes:
– Great accessibility to Central London
– The cleanliness of the area is amazing and is definitely one of the best I’ve seen.
– Most of the buildings around the area are offices; many young professionals around the area makes it feel very secure.
– The buildings surrounding the development are beautiful.
– The nearby public area, Merchants Square is really nice, especially in the summer.

Dislikes:
– There’s no playground in the nearby area; we thought there was gonna be one.
– Development gets very hot in the summer due to no built-in air conditioning.
– Development does not allow the installation of air conditioning.

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

That there’s no air conditioner. We have a terrace but it’s not possible to raise the barrier as it’s quite low, I wish I’d known beforehand.

A great home for everyone!

Review Date Sep 2019

This development is just amazing for most potential residents out there for a variety of reasons. First of all, the variety and quantity of green spaces around the area makes it very pleasant in the summer. In addition, the place is very well developed due to the build being completed very recently. The design of the buildings is also splendid!

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

Likes:
– The park at the centre of the development is really nice.
– The place is well developed and all the buildings are very new.
– There is an abundance of transport with lots of stations and buses nearby.
– Design is really good; definitely more modern than most developments.

Dislikes:
– bit too crowded sometimes

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

In terms of wishes, I think that I would have liked to have know more about the area itself before moving in.

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

I haven’t had any problems so far with the development so I haven’t raised anything with management.

Due to the new regeneration within the area, the new developments that have sprung up have been amazing.

– New regeneration means that the area is really nice.
– Better security compared to most areas which makes me feel very safe.
– Different to other areas of London.
– Transport is great and very close by.

Adams review

Review Date Apr 2020

One thing I was really excited to see when first moving in was the cycle/bike room where I was able to lock my bike and ensure it was safe at all times. When first moving in I didn’t actually own a bike however finding out about the cycle room encouraged me to want to get one and keep fit.

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

I like the fact it’s very safe and secure however one thing I do find disturbing is the cars on the motorway outside my window as it can effect my sleeping sometimes. However apart from that I’m quiet happy with everything else

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

Specifically being told that only virgin media is usable and not other broadbands such as sky and so on.

Great for all types of residents

Verified Resident

Review Date Sep 2019

What shines out the most about this area is just how convenient it is! Whether you’re looking for local grocery stores, restaurants or pubs, Paddington Gardens is close to it all. The local transport is also so close to the property itself and allows easy access to all areas of London, which is very useful for workers and students! The abundance of green spaces and services make this area very desirable.

The only downsides to this area would have to be its significant amount of crime.

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

Likes:
– The transport links in the area are very local and very frequent.
– Greens spaces surrounding the area are nice.
– It’s a very industrial area so there is a lot of services very locally.

Dislikes:
– There’s a significant amount of crime near the development.

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

I wish I’d known that the only internet providers in the area would be Virgin Media and BT.
