Great central place to live

Verified Resident

Review Date Mar 2019

Royal Quarter comprises seven blocks of one, two and three bed flats. All have access to communal grounds, and most have access to a private gym and underground parking. The location is perfect and the upkeep is generally good – occasional noise disturbance from the railway line and one way system but otherwise a great spot to live.

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

Kingston is the perfect shopping and socialising destination – all based along a gorgeous stretch of Riverside.

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

I would have probably liked to have known how difficult it can be to access the carpark when the one-way system is jammed.

Beautiful place to live

Review Date Jun 2019

I’ve had a great experience here. There’s a nice community vibe because of the communal gardens. It’s gated so I feel safe to have my children running around freely. My appartment is nice but quite small for the price but I find it’s more than worth it. The concierge are always helpful

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

There’s nothing to dislike here. We are close to the high Street and everything you need plus travel links

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

Nothing really, as I said I have had a positive experience here

Review Date Jun 2019

It’s a lovely building, the gardens are a highlight and they are so well kept. The managemt are so helpful, usuaky if I have a problem it us fixed within hours. Once the lift broke and it was fixed two hours later. The only thing is that the value is poor for the size of the flat, so we are moving next month

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

I like how quiet it is here, there’s not too much noise and it’s a short walk into town

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

Nothing really, it’s lovely but like I said the value was disappointing

The concierge is 24 seven and they are very helpful refurbished it’s very warm. I feel very safe. There is a gym and easy access to supermarkets and travel. The ventilation isn’t great it can get too hot and I’m unsure of the fire safety procedures. I don’t feel confident about the building behind safe in a fire

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

I like the area for shopping. I dislike hat there are lot if drunk teenagers being loud at 2 am. There was a stabbing here last year

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

It’s expensive to fix things like the boiler and it can be a hassle. The hot water doesn’t always work. The windows are terrible

Safe and quiet place. Security allows us to be very safe. A beautiful and clean area. People are very kind. I am very happy here because it is not as expensive as other places and a health centre nearby is always convenient for the residents.

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

Local shops and river nearby. Also a health centre is near which is ideal for students.

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

Low energy levels aa it’s only electricity and no payment for water
