Great spot

Verified Resident

The property is fine. Majority of neighbours are pleasant however there are a few unlikable ones. There is not enough parking spaces and to buy a parking space in the underground car park can cost up to £20,000

 

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

Kitchen lay out is not quite what i would have liked

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

Dislike that there is a lot of noise from cars of a night and you can hear them revving their engines

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

I wish i had known traffic can be quite bad and the trains do not come as frequent as i would of liked

Great spot

Verified Resident

Secure, new development with lots of local amenities such as a gym and pharmacy, with further, including NHS health centre and nursery, opening soon. Also great day time transport links, with Pontoon Dock and West Silverton station both within c. 5 to 10 minutes (walking distance).

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

Nice clean area; can be difficult to access past 12am as DLR stops running do nearest station is Canning Town

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

Post room opening hours would differ from those of the concierge

Royal Docks

I like the area and the fact that we are getting more services around. Its very well linked with central London. However, the DLR is getting very busy due to the over populated are. I feel the new development is crowded and the buildings are too tall. This has drastically impacted the landscape.

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

The buildings are TOO tall.

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

They where developing tall buildings.

Nice place to live

Verified Resident

Very nice designed new development and good community feel. It could do with more facilities which are slowly coming. The transport links need to be improved for the number of residents in area. The new Triple Two coffee place is nice. The airport can be too noisy.

 

What is the best feature of your home?

The view of the park and river. The location. Its generally quiet at night.

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

Nice area to live, nice being by river, needs some more shops and restaurants

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

The airport is expanding and too much heavy industry nearby, that the pub isn’t opening until 2020, DLR is very busy in mornings

Amazing Views

Really love the views of the surrounding area, the quality of life has improved dramatically in recent years and the Royal Wharf is a welcome addition to the area and I am now a proud tenant of a 2 bed apartment.

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

There are wonderful community amenities all very local to the royal whalf, and all very affordable too. I have recently started eating at a wonderful new salad bar which opened on the dock last month.

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

I just wish I had purchased a higher flat, as i imagine the views would be incredible higher up. Also the floorboards in the above me are very creaky, that is the only downside to be honest. Apart from that I am very happy.
