Guestbook comments from the manager

amazing apartment with amazing views of big Ben and London eye. living area best part of apartment as so spacious with fantastic views. only down side was the kitchen needs to be far better equipped with glasses. only 2 tumblers in a2 bedroom apartment. kids ended up having to drink their milk and water out of coffee cups. enough wine glasses for a party but not enough every day glasses. this however would be the only issue to an otherwise perfect apartment, perfect location and excellent value for money. will return to themes view apartments, apartment 66 on our next visit for sure.

3 Star Property masquerading as a 5 Star

  • 2 out of 5
I stayed with my wife and two young children at this Vauxhall apartment for two weeks in early December 2011. I have booked apartments and houses before via the internet without any problem in both Europe and the US. This was the first time I booked via a managing agent rather than the owner – and will be the last.

Briefly, these were the issues we had:
1. Reservation – I initiated a booking in April, 8 months before our visit. Our reservation was initially for another apartment, Skyline. A few weeks before our scheduled visit we were unilaterally shifted to the Vauxhall apartment. I suspected it was a case of over booking.

2. Check in – We turned up late in the afternoon and were turned away; we were told there was no booking. With two tired children in tow and an 8 month confirmed booking it was the last thing we expected. We had to make several calls to BLL to gain admittance.

3. State of Appliances – the following did not work properly or at all – washer/dryer, microwave, TV. We phoned and mentioned this next morning and were advised a repairman would be around next day. Eventually the TV and microwave were replaced. The washer was allegedly repaired but did not work .

4. Plumbing issues – when we arrived the kitchen was absolutely putrid, a stench emanating from the kitchen sink. The basin in the ensuite was also putrid. A plumber came around at least twice during our stay. His “solution” was to pour a bottle of a draining gel down each drain and leave a few spare bottles. After the first week we closed off the ensuite, the stench was so overpowering.

5. Lack of privacy – on about the 4th day of our visit we found out in the evening that the manager had given access to our apartment to several workmen and a real estate agent – without any supervision and without either notice to us or our permission. That is unacceptable.

6. Lack of responsiveness – I have read here and on other sites where this property is listed that well after December, tenants are still having the same issues with faulty sanitation and appliances.

7. Refund – after our visit I liaised with the manager of BLL about our experience. After a period of negotiation, BLL refunded a significant portion of the rental fee and apologised for the state of the property.

The property has potential to be a 5 star property. In our experience it is a 3 star, masquerading as a 5 star and charging 5 star rates. There are better properties and managers to be found.

Very nice apartment

  • 4 out of 5
Plus: clean, roomy (for Europe), great Thames view, restaurants and shops on ground floor, subway access that you don't even have to cross the street for. These are big plusses which outweigh the small minuses.
Minus: The key delivery spot was unclear. Instructions were not to engage the concierge, but key was delivered to the concierge desk (who were very helpful). Instructions for the apartment were left in various places throughout the apartment (where to leave the key was on the back of the front door, for example). The living room furniture is low to the floor and uncomfortable. The small bedroom lacks storage for anything that needs to be hung up.

Owner's Response: Dear Steve,

We are glad that you enjoyed the apartment and considered it spacious and clean. We are also thrilled you liked the view and took advantage of the local restaurants which on a sunny day are marvellous.

Thank you in particular for your feedback on the issues we can improve. We have since you stay actually amended the information in the apartments so that it is far clearer. Also, we are in the process of refining the key delivery so that it is viewed as the 24/7 convenience it is intended to be. I'm sorry the sofa was not to your liking, it is a large designer sofa but perhaps some extra pillows will improve any future experiences. Although there is a lack of storage in the second bedroom we like to think that the the double storage in the master bedroom compensates for this.

We would like to remind you that all returning guests benefit from a 5% discount so please do come back and visit us again.

Best wishes,

Ian

Vauxhall is a beautiful inner-city area of South London, in the London Borough of Lambeth. At one point, it was in the historic county of Surrey. It's currently a popular residential area for Members of Parliament and civil servants, due to its proximity to the Houses of Parliament and Whitehall. Vauxhall is also known for its ethnic diversity, boasting a very strong Portugese and Muslim community. In recent years, Vauxhall's riverside has undergone major development, with a number of modern and residential blocks being constructed. One of these, the MI6, has been featured in many James Bond films, and is the home of the British Secret Intelligence Service. Other landmarks of the area include the Brunswick House, a listed Georgian mansion and former home of the Dukes of Brunswick; St. Peters Church, in Kennington Lane; and, soon, St. George Wharf, which will be the tallest residential building in the entire United Kingdom.

Other Activities: Shopping, Sightseeing, historical walks, excellent transport options, direct access to one of the world's best cities.
