Amazing view of central London

Verified Resident
Verified Resident
Review Date Sep 2019

The flat is lovely. I got a great view of the London Eye from my balcony which is amazing.
The flat is modern, and the space is alright for London. Not too spacious but just as any flat in central.
The underground parking is brilliant, and it is included with the flat.
Traffic is the only bad thing I could think of.
Building management has been great and we got a lovely concierge.

 

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

It is so central it is great. It is easy to get anywhere. It’s London but it feels quite safe. It is very convenient because of the shops too. Everything you need is nearby.

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

We just moved in and noticed there is no broadband, so we will have to sort that out to connect everything,

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

Until now building management has been very helpful and replied very promtly to any issues.

Amazing water view

Verified Resident
Verified Resident
Review Date Sep 2019

We got a very nice balcony and view. The best is we are near water, which is very nice. Not all flats got balconies which is good to know.
The flat is modern and the size is not bad for been London. The boilers are not too good to be fair; everything is electric.
I think the design could be better. The 3rd bedroom is quite small so we just use it as a studio.
There is a 24 hour concierge which is very good. The building has an underground garage with a space for each flat which is great and very safe.
It can be a bit noisy at times but you would expect that in central London.
We did not really move in here because of the building, but because of the location and the balcony with its view.
A good thing is the building manager is very good as it is not agents.

 

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

We like it is very central, and only 10 minutes away from marble arch. To be fair one of the reasons why we chose to live here was the location.
Transport is fine. The area has become very busy now. There is a lot of traffic.
We got a lot of shops, restaurants, cafes, etc, nearby which is good. There is a lot of life.
It is not 100% safe, but it is not bad for such a busy area. An issue is there are some gangs from an estate down the road. And also some Romanian beggers hang around Tesco. The bar next to us is quite noisy.
It is just that the area has changed a lot in the last 10 years.

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

I wish I had known about how over time the area would change, as there is a different atmosfere and there used to be more wildlife.

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

It is all very high spec in the building. I think it is just that the area has changed quite a lot since 2003 when we moved in.

Lovely apartment

Verified Resident
Verified Resident
Review Date Sep 2019

Very nice apartment. Perfect environment. Very new and modern, and quite cosy. Not too spacious but its London. Balcony but view is not the best because it looks to the back. Neighbours throw rubbish or with the wind it just manages to get into our balcony.
Management is very good, and there is a guard all the time. It feels very safe. There are regular activities as yoga in the area, which is great for residents.

 

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

The area is very good and convenient. There are stores everywhere as m&s and co-op. The best point is accessibility, especially because of the trains.
The only bad thing is there are not too many asian cuisine restaurants.
The canal nearby is very nice and refreshing. It is ideal to go and rest there or just walk around.
It feels quite safe compared to other areas because it is so busy.

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

We knew everything before moving in so there wasnt any problems.

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

Building management has always responded very promptly.

The flat is very modern, well equipped, and everything of good quality. It could have been bigger, but after all it’s London.
The underground garage is great.
I have no balcony, but my view is actually nice. I can see the London eye and gherkin from my flat.
I have never had any issues with building management. The concierge is great and very helpful.

There are great shops around, and dining options are very good.

Had some repairs and updates to do but my landlord was very understanding and kind about it and never refused to do what had to be done

Balmoral apartment in West End Quay is a high end development with a lot of modern amenities. It is a very secure building along with a concierge. The building has central heating as well as cooling. Outside the building is a newly built floating garden on the river which makes for a beautiful relaxation area

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

It is a very busy area. Edgware road never sleeps. It can be both good or bad depending on the person. You can find all kinds of stores and restaurants. Edgware road and Paddington stations are well connected

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

The concierge leaves at 10 pm. Try not to have a problem after that. (there’s another concierge at adjacent property that can help after that though)

Review Date Sep 2019

Well built and well managed property. The customer service is good too. We have a car park, it is 1 space per flat, the concierge is very nice too. The flat is very conveniently located because it is close to Oxford Circus where I like spending most of my spare time.

 

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

It is very noisy but pretty area, it is also very well connected because it is quite central. My favourite restaurants are at Sheldon Square, I prefered them to the local ones.

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

I wish I had known about the cladding problems. The regulations have been changed now and the cladding replacement is going to take around 6 months. It is frustrating that we have to pay for it.

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

Excellent management, they maintain very good communication with both the tenants and the owners.

Awesome location and good value for money

Verified Resident
Verified Resident
Review Date Sep 2019

It is a well built flat, better quality than in the ones I have lived in before. It is a good value for money. I have a balcony, facing the garden, I love the view! The flat is not spacious but it is bright because of the light coming in from the garden. There is a concierge and the safety is alright.

 

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

There are many supermarkets around. I particularly do my grocery shopping at Tesco. It is just around the corner and it is open 24 hours, 7 days a week.

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

The agent was very straightforward. The complete information was provided to me.

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

I wish that the sink in the bathroom was bigger. As it is now, it is too small.

Great experience living here

Verified Resident
Verified Resident
Review Date Sep 2019

The flats are too small, there is no weekly cleaning service despite of the fact that the rooms resemble hotel rooms. The service charge is quite high too and it is an expensive place overall. A perk is that it looks great inside and it is modern.

 

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

Paddington is a great area, close to all shops and many facilties. It is well connected too, we use taxis, buses and the train to move around.

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

I wish I knew the landlord wouldn’t be changing the card everytime someone new is moving in. As it is now, I don’t feel safe.

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

I would make the flat bigger, it is too small as it is and there is not enough space.

The staff are super friendly. The place is kept really clean. It feels very safe and secure. It’s all new and working well. The flat has a balcony with a great view, we spend lots of time enjoying it. Great modern design.

Very central, near the canal, close to Paddington.
Not much of a community though, and it can get very busy.

There’s nothing I can think of. It’s my boyfriend’s flat so he chose it.

The management are great, any problems and you call them up and they deal with it.
