Dumont review

Verified Resident
Verified Resident
Review Date Nov 2020

The design, facilities and management are all great. I love the concierge. St James could be better though, their customer service isn’t great. I’ve had a few communications from her that have been quite rude and short with me which isn’t what I’d expect.

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

Fantastic development, facilities and service are amazing

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

I wish I’d known how loud the trains would be, even into the night

What is the best feature of your home:

The facilities, especially the bowling alley and the gym

Modern Building with top tier amenities and neighbors at a fantastic location. Rare to find in London.

Review Date Nov 2020

The local amenities are new and the design is really modern. The building management is extraordinary, always clean. And the Employees working in it (concierge or bartenders) are exceptional, always resourceful. The building have everything at need on it (lounge, gym, bar-rooftop, pool and terraces).

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

The Transport links are exceptional, with a train and underground station at a 5 Min walking from the development and bus station that leads to Liverpool Station or Central London right in front of the building. Also there is a stop in front of the building for cars to stop (UBER). In terms of shopping shops, there aren’t much around, although for groceries there is a nice Little Waitrose and a sainsburys at a 5 min walk. Regarding restaurants there is the Vauxhall type of restaurant close, nothing fancy.

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

I wish i Knew that with Coronavirus there was some restrictions in place and the pool is under remodelling.

What is the best feature of your home:

The views of the city of London and the spacious Kitchen/Living room.

The Dumont 1bed apt review

Verified Resident
Verified Resident
Review Date Nov 2020

Facilities and design are good. Building management is good but could be better. Window cleaning hasn’t completed yet since June which is annoying and no expected date has been communicated. Management also tend to not reply sometimes to emails about complaints/questions

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

5’ walk from station, 15’ walk to Parliament. Thames front development. Groceries stores 5’ away. Safe area and very central

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

Noise in bedroom from trains

What is the best feature of your home:

Location, design, underfloor heating and winter garden.

Great facilities if they were open!

Review Date Nov 2020

Beautiful building and amazing facilities. The cinema is great!
On the downside the pool has leaks so they are re doing it. Been living here since July and unable to use the pool or spa! Poor when it’s included in large management fees

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

Great views of the river and walking distance to the main tourist destinations. Only issue is there are few facilities and nice local areas with boutique type cafes and shops

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

The pool wouldn’t be open still! We were told it would be ready when we moved in in July

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

Pretty poor. We asked about a reduction in management fees due to the facilities not being finished when they were supposed to be (pool, cinema, bowling, billiards) but were fobbed off

Great development

Verified Resident

Review Date Oct 2020

The Dumont feels like a luxury hotel when you walk in. The design is sleek and modern, and it is always spotless. The concierges are always happy to help. We thoroughly enjoy living here and always feel looked after. The apartments are spacious and modern.

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

Very close to Vauxhall station and small shops.

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

The development is a very short walk away from the south bank and St James’s Park.

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

I’d move it further away from the train line as it’s noisy with the windows open.

Premium building with a view

Verified Resident
Verified Resident
Review Date Oct 2020

The overall development is nicely decorated and managed. As for facilities, different options are provided such as a swimming pool, gym, cinema, bowling, few terraces and a bar. Unfortunately not all of those are currently available due to covid restrictions.

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

Recently renewed area, quite a few premium restaurant options. Not many shops in the surrounding area. Nice view facing the parliament and the City

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

Simulations around the specific view you would get from the winter garden (really nice) and the level of noise from the railway (not so nice)

What is the best feature of your home:

Premium finish with marble interiors and wooden floor
