I really like the apartment – it’s great. Its comfortable, pretty spacious and attractive. One big downside is that the surface around the sink in the bathroom is made of wood and this is very inconvenient as I constantly have to dry it to stop it getting damaged. The building management are good.

There is underfloor heating but it did not work during the winter so I had to buy heaters.

I really like the area – it’s fantastic and very convenient- there is a nursery, tesco and lots of other amenities nearby

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

We were told that the apartment would be fully furnished (including curtains) but it was not and this was disappointing.

Are there any facilities you would like added, or that you have but do not use:

Lovely area and apartment

Review Date Aug 2019

The apartment is really great – modern, good quality and attractive. It’s also really spacious and this is what really swayed me – I looked at lots of other apartments but this one definitely had the most space.

The best feature of my home is the balcony – it’s really big and there is an amazing view across the river and surrounding area

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

I really like the area – its quiet, green, there’s a lovely promenade along the river and it’s nice and residential. The surroundings are really great. I don’t like that it’s so far from central London though.

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

I knew that there would not be a gym but it would be great if there was one

Great transport links via DLR

Review Date Aug 2019

I’m happy with the apartment – it’s good quality and attractive. However there are a few niggles/ design flaws such as the fact that the light for the bathroom is behind the door (this gets very irritating!). There are also a lot of bugs and flies that come in despite the fact that I’m on a high floor. It can be quite noisy due to City Airport but this isn’t a huge issue.

I chose this development for the convenience- it’s really close to the DLR and I can get to London Bridge easily for work.

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

I like that it’s close to the DLR and nice and quiet. I don’t like that there is not a big supermarket nearby.

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

I wish I had known that there wasn’t a gym and that there weren’t great gyms nearby

Why did you choose this development:

Review Date Aug 2019

I really like the apartment – it’s good quality and spacious. We have not had many issues but there was a problem with the ventilation at one point and the building management were quick to resolve the issue. It’s a family friendly place to live which is great.

It would be great if there was a gym included in the development.

I like everything – it’s a good location and it’s very safe.
One thing I dislike is how noisy it is.

Tower Gateay in Royal Victoria is a good place to live.

Verified Resident
Verified Resident
Review Date Mar 2021

My development is good, one of the lifts break quite often, which is annoying as it takes longer to catch the lift. It doesn’t have a gym or facilities, but it has a 24hr concierge which is useful, the building is new and I quite enjoy it, it also has a great view.

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

I love the Royal Victoria area, DLR station is nearby, it has a great view of the docks, there’s a range of restaurants, it has most things I need. The only thing missing is a pharmacy, the rest is great, I feel safe and enjoy living here.

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

There’s plenty to discover around here, so walk to Royal wharf and explore the docks.

What is the best feature of your home:

Great balcony, quite spacious, New apartment I’ve been the first tenant, so it’s clean and brand new.

Love the apartment and location

Review Date Aug 2019

The apartment is really nice – it’s new, modern, clean, good quality and spacious. The security on the building us good and it’s a safe area anyway. The concierge service us great. One bad thing is that my apartment is on the ground floor and there is a tank blocking the view from my window.

The building management been really good at responding- quick and efficient.

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

I like the proximity to the station. I don’t like the noise from the planes.

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

I did know that there wouldn’t be a gym but I really wish there was one – it would be a great addition

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

They’ve been really good at responding- quick and efficient

Green area and great apartment

Review Date Aug 2019

Really like the apartment – it’s new, modern and spacious. Everything works well. In the downside it can get very noisy if you have the windows open because of the DLR and City Airport but you do get used to it and the noise stops during the night. Overall though it’s a really nice place to live.

It would be great to have a gym, especially as there are not many gyms in this area in general.

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

Nature easy access noisy
I really like the area because there is lots of greenery and easy access to transport and the O2. I don’t like that it is noisy sometimes.

Are there any facilities you would like added, or that you have but do not use:

It would be great if there was a gym included in the development.
