|26-Mar-2015||809 DENISON HOUSE LANTERNS COURT||We arrived at about 10:00 on Tuesday, Feb 24th after a long journey and a fair bit of luggage. The driveway to the front door was chained off so we couldn't have easy access to the building. I entered the lobby and asked politely whether there was a luggage cart or ability to unchain the entrance. The gentleman, in a very unprofessional way simply said "no" with a smug look on his face. He remained seated and was clearly not interested in trying to help at all. We therefore had to make multiple trips back and forth from the taxi while he remained seated. He had very little knowledge about the facilities and left a very negative impression about the building staff and service level. The apartment was sufficiently clean. However the room was quite small for two adults. It was nice that there were a few food items for our arrival. The locks on the front doors were extremely tricky and frustrating, sometimes taking at least five minutes to open. All in all it was the very poor experience with the receptionist that painted our entire experience. I've shared this experience with my company's HR department and mobility team and urged them to remove this property from our company's list of preferred vendors.|
|25-Mar-2015||10 - 140 MINORIES||I was very pleased with the comfortable and well maintenance flat.|
|25-Mar-2015||Apt 6A CLEVELAND RESIDENCES||The kitchen and bathroom was very good. The quality of the mattress was low. Internet connection in 6A at Cleveland Street was bad (suffering disconnection every some minutes). Having Sky TV would add a plus.|
|25-Mar-2015||45-47B BRUSHFIELD STREET||Apartment and its location was pretty good. However you need to make sure that the facilities indicated are available and robust before you let it out. The facilities guide in the apartment said that there was a phone available , which was not the case. Also the digital safe provided was non-operational and the toiled flush was too hard to operate. The internet connection was unstable and fairly unusable for at least 3 days. I did send a complaint email to guestservices email address indicated, but received no response on the same till date, though internet connection improved after that. The least I would expect is a call back/email acknowledgement indicating that issues will be addressed. Lack of response is terrible thing|
I am sorry that you were not happy with your stay at Brushfield Street.
You contacted us by email at 09.02 on 13 March 2015 as follows:
I am staying over at 45-47B brushfield street from 8th-21st March . The manual says that the phone is available but I could not locate any, neither does dialing the number can get you through. Internet service provided is not usable, it isn’t working for last 2 days and the toilet flush is very hard, almost non operational. Also the digital safe provided is locked out (I tried resetting the pin as per the manual instructions, but I don’t seem to be able to setup a new PIN)
Would it be possible to fix up these little niggles please?
At 10.51 on 13 March, we emailed you back as follows:
Maintenance will attend your apartment today look at all the issues that you have raised.
The telephone instructions should have been removed prior to your arrival as this facility is no longer offered throughout our apartments and I apologise for the oversight on our part, for not having removed them.
If you have any other queries please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
AT 14.56 Pat on our maintenance team emailed us in the office to advise that the toilet flush was working, he had reset the safe and it was ready to use and he had checked the 4G wifi device and it was working fine.
At 15.00 on 13 March we emailed you again as follows:
Maintenance have attended your apartment today and I am pleased to tell you that everything is working as it should.
If you have any other queries please contact us at email@example.com
After that, we did not hear from you again so assumed that you were happy with your apartment.
Our Reservations Manager has just mentioned to me that emails to employees at your company frequently end up in their spam folders. Perhaps this is what happened here. Would you mind checking your junk email to see if our emails are in it.
|25-Mar-2015||37 GOOCH HOUSE||Wonderful experience to stay in Ghooch House.
The only missing piece is a laundry service.
Apart from it everything is perfect!
|24-Mar-2015||APARTMENT 9 MARYLEBONE APARTMENTS||Please w/ service w/ exception of Internet service failure -- which wasn't fixed for several days.|
|24-Mar-2015||04 CLARENDON GARDENS||It was a little tricky to find, but once were there we received excellent attention and service. The flat was clean, fitted with nice furniture and plenty of necessities in the kitchen. I would recommend Clarendon and would definitely stay there again if the need arises.|
|24-Mar-2015||Apt 4D CLEVELAND RESIDENCES||Overall a very good experience staying there a couple of weeks.
If I have to say a couple of little things, I would say that I missed seeing again gel and shampoo refilled for the second week. It would have been a great detail, plus the heating was a very difficult to control.
Again, very nice service, place, location, etc...
|24-Mar-2015||07 CLARENDON HOUSE||Even though we did not have someone in person to show us around, the lady was very helpful and everything came together perfectly. The apartment was very clean, and we had everything we needed . I would certainly recommend Clarendon for anyone wishing to rent serviced apartments.
|24-Mar-2015||Apt 6D CLEVELAND RESIDENCES||Everything went well. However I was not a fan of the 4G internet that replaced regular broadband midway.
Also, I believe check in would be easier however if the access code were shared in advance.
|03-Mar-2015||122 DISCOVERY DOCK EAST||The only reason I do not put excellent, is cause in the reception when they give you the envelope they do not explain you which key to use and how you can enter the building. The service in the reception is quite bad. I wanted also to storage my luggage for some hours after check-out and this was also not possible. The room was great, clean and I have already recommended Clarendon to my colleagues.|
|28-Feb-2015||APARTMENT 3 25 SAVAGE GARDENS||Centrally located and self contained apartment. My stay at Clarendon was very comfortable.|
|28-Feb-2015||041 DISCOVERY DOCK EAST||the apartment that I stayed in prior was much nicer. The washer / dryer was complicated and I was unable to get it to work.|
|27-Feb-2015||02 - 140 MINORIES||Overall my stay was enjoyable.|
|27-Jan-2015||01 36A WELLINGTON STREET||All in all, everything was great. Obtaining this apartment was nice and easy and the overall service has been great. I really enjoyed the support of getting my friend an extra key for his last day visiting me...this allowed me to go back to work and not disrupt my day.
A couple minor areas for improvement. The cleaning service did an excellent job maintaining the cleanliness of the apartment. However, it would be nice if they would be able to keep certain things as-is. For example, being on the 2nd floor overlooking a busy street, I liked to keep my blinds closed. Every Monday after the cleaning service came, I would get home and need to re-shut my blinds. I know there is a probably a checklist that they need to execute, but it would be nice if they could recognize that I keep them shut. Similarly, it would also be nice if they were able to clean the shower without changing some of the settings. For example, they would often clean the item that controls the hot/cold setting or move around the shower head. Again....very minor, but these are things that I would always have to put back to my preferred settings every Monday.
Regardless of those minor things, the experience was great, location was amazing and it was a great overall experience.
|27-Jan-2015||05 CLARENDON HOUSE||We had a fantastic time in London over the Christmas period. The flat we stayed in (Flat 5) was more than perfect in every way. Being able to stay in Clarendon House was fantastic. We were originally booked at Manning Place and that would have been fine but being moved to Kew, literally made our time in London so much more special. It brought back so many good memories of when we stayed at Clarendon House 6 years ago when I came back to London to have my little girl. We are so grateful to the team at Clarendon. Carmen & Jackie. It really was spectacular and we cannot thank you enough.|
|26-Jan-2015||06 CLARENDON HOUSE||Overall, the apartment is nice and well maintained. Housekeeping were courteous and diligent. The property is rather old and has poop seals on the windows. It is virtually impossible to get the desired temperature - it's either too cold or very stuffy if the temperature controls are tuned up to keep the place warm.
We had a problem with the internet connection since day one and the management removed themselves from resolving it and left us to deal with the internet provider. In 10 weeks during our stay, the problem didn't get resolved and the connectivity remained unstable or non-existent.
We left a few items upon check-out and the management didn't get in touch with us to inform us even though they requested our contact details for that same reason. However, we contacted the management and arranged to collect the items later.
|26-Jan-2015||02 WRAYSBURY HALL||Thank you very much for a beautiful clean, well equipped apartment|
|26-Jan-2015||603 ONE PEPYS STREET||Clean, good size, convenient for transportation.|
|19-Dec-2014||37 KEW BRIDGE APARTMENTS||Clarendon is a professional company, and I love the way they flow with communication. I never had any challenges for all the duration of my stay.
I'll certainly stay with them again, and recommend any of my friends who wish to find where to live.
|16-Dec-2014||505 ONE PEPYS STREET||My stay was fine overall, however there are two things that I was very displeased with. First, the staff was quite rude. The French gentleman who sits at the front desk (usually on weekends), was rude to us on arrival. Second, our apartment smelled awful for the first few weeks we were there. I'm not sure if the carpets are in desperate need of cleaning or what, but it was nauseating and disgusting. I'd recommend looking into it ASAP.|
|10-Dec-2014||51A BRUSHFIELD STREET||Everything is perfect including location, cleanness, utilities, etc, except that once in a month, a street cleaning company will make huge noise during the whole night.|
|09-Dec-2014||05 - 140 MINORIES||This is a perfect apartment! All facilities are clean and convinient to use. Love this apartment. Thanks a lot for your help!|
|05-Dec-2014||15 4 STEWARD STREET||Nice, clean apartment. Super helpful and responsive service team.
I would love to use Clarendon for a couple of months, but can't afford the corporate rate which was offered to me.
Lobby area was a bit messy, and I had two incidents were drunk people urinated at the front door.
|04-Dec-2014||08 CLARENDON HOUSE||very nice unit for extended stay in london|
|03-Dec-2014||310 ONE PEPYS STREET||Very good in General, nur The room is TO Chose TO the Train station|
|03-Dec-2014||041 DISCOVERY DOCK EAST||Maintenance people were sent to the apartment with less than 24 hours notice which was not appreciated.|
|03-Dec-2014||10 CLARENDON HOUSE||We stayed in number 10 - it is a great little flat, good size, well kept. It suited out needs very well.|
|03-Dec-2014||05 4 STEWARD STREET||The apartment is clean, with weekly cleaning including dishwashing. In addition, the team was able to provide additional blanket and bedsheets for the sofa upon request.|
|24-Nov-2014||G04 ONE PEPYS STREET||The apartment is quite spacious and well maintained as well as centrally located! The cleanliness is well taken care by their weekly cleaning service provided!
Some of the fittings in the bathroom are very old fashioned - the overhead shower was in a very bad state and had to be replaced and threre is no hand shower facility. When requested, Clarendon advised that this cannot be fitted - surprised that an apartment in the heart of London does not have the basic fittings ;)
Also, Clarendon were not clear about their check our policies and this caused a huge inconviniece as I had to check one day ahead of the planned check out date. They were not unable to provide an alternative when requested. This reflects very poor customer service on their part and needs improvement!! Pls ensure clarify the check out dates with Clarendon prior to check-in to avoid confusion !!
|24-Nov-2014||APARTMENT 5 25 SAVAGE GARDENS||~The apartment was lovely- great location and had everything needed.
Ann and the housekeeping team were wonderful.
I would definitely recommend the apartment to others.
|24-Nov-2014||711 DENISON HOUSE LANTERNS COURT||Well done, everything as expected.|
|03-Nov-2014||811 DENISON HOUSE LANTERNS COURT||Apartment was clean and close to shopping and the DLR.|
|30-Oct-2014||704 ONE PEPYS STREET||Very good service and nice accomodations|
|30-Oct-2014||103 ONE PEPYS STREET||Very well equipped appartments, cleaning service quite good, nice location.|
|29-Oct-2014||APT 1 4 NORTH MEWS||The cleaning staff that came every Thursday were thorough and professional, the space itself was bright and nicely furnished, and we stayed long enough to find plenty of great restaurants in the area. A wonderful experience overall!|
|29-Oct-2014||APARTMENT 4 36-38 WEST STREET||Good security, clean apartment...
Noisy traffic and people outside though... maybe triple glass windows might help?
|29-Oct-2014||907 COBALT POINT LANTERNS COURT||The apartment had everything that I needed, and was very clean. The service which came on Monday to clean did a nice job, but I noted the linens provided upon initial check in were much nicer than the linens provided at the clean up mid-stay. I appreciated the thoughtful touches, such as some staple food items and basic toiletries, that were there for my use during my stay.|
|29-Oct-2014||626 DENISON HOUSE LANTERNS COURT||The apartment was very clean and well equipped and well located. I stayed there 2 years ago and will definitely stay there again.|
|29-Oct-2014||G07 ONE PEPYS STREET||The apartment was clean, had everything I needed, and in a good location. Thanks!|
|29-Oct-2014||07 CLARENDON GARDENS||We found the apartment excellent for our holiday visit to London. It was spacious, well furnished and equiped and nice and clean. Next time we visit London we would definitely consider using Clarendon Serviced Apartments again.|
|20-Oct-2014||APARTMENT 4 36-38 WEST STREET||The flat by itself is perfect, but from Wednesday to Saturday it is almost impossible to sleep since pub downstairs....|
|17-Oct-2014||49A GOOCH HOUSE||Apartment was perfect for our needs - clean, well stocked with essentials, convenient area. My only complaint would be that it was extremely warm (25-27 degrees C) throughout our stay, and we couldn't seem to turn down the heat. The hallways were even hotter.
Because it was so warm we didn't need the duvet on the bed and would appreciate having a top sheet for light cover instead.
|15-Oct-2014||Apt 6E CLEVELAND RESIDENCES||Check in was very seamless and private. The apartment was kept in tip top condition, and Clarendon provided a little more than basic apartment needs, for example dish washer and clothes detergent, along with complimentary tea and coffee, making the apartments homely and fully functional even for a short stay. Really loved my stay at Clarendon.|
Thank you for your kind comments. We are delighted you enjoyed your stay at Cleveland Residences and hope to be able to welcome you back again soon. Best regards, The Clarendon Team
|15-Oct-2014||707 COBALT POINT LANTERNS COURT||The heating was at a very high temperature and inspite of reducing the temperature, it didn't seem to work. Rest all was very good - spacious apartment and good response on making any request|
|09-Oct-2014||03 36A WELLINGTON STREET||Great apartment and service.|
|08-Oct-2014||37 GOOCH HOUSE||overall very satisfied|
|06-Oct-2014||101 ONE PEPYS STREET||Very nice and clean. I would use it again.
A few suggestions: A coat rack at the entrance to leave outerwear, umbrellas, etc.
Instructions for the use of the telly; what are the channels available, etc.. And instructions for the washing machine with temperature conversions.
|06-Oct-2014||8 DISCOVERY DOCK WEST||Apartment was nice, clean and convient.|
|03-Oct-2014||08 WRAYSBURY HALL||The team was helpful getting me set up and the apartment worked well again.|
|03-Oct-2014||59 GOOCH HOUSE||All stay was excellent. Everything I needed was already in the apartment. I will totally recommend you to other people and most likely use it when again in London.
One minus in rating is because of reservation handling. Fee was deducted on the day of booking, not the date of invoice or first/last day of arrival. For private bookings it probably doesn't matter but for corporate rental it's making additional credit card/financial issues. You may think of putting the amount 'on hold' instead of deducting it from credit card first.
|30-Sep-2014||50 GOOCH HOUSE||I stayed for 6 months..Cleaning staff on thursday was amazing and efficient, all the issues were acknowledged, resolved in timely manner...Internet TV , toilets hot water, wardrobe etc..were excellent..Will surely recommend and look forward to come back in future..
Thanks for making my stay Pleasurable!!
Cheers:) Until we meet again!
|29-Sep-2014||G01 ONE PEPYS STREET||The bubbles aren't aligned in this survey...I mean to say Excellent|
|29-Sep-2014||808 DENISON HOUSE LANTERNS COURT||Everything was fine. I've had good experiences with Clarendon in the past and this recent stay was on par with others.|
|29-Sep-2014||G06 ONE PEPYS STREET||Another great stay with Clarendon!! Thanks for your great service!|
|29-Sep-2014||13 4 STEWARD STREET||I made very good experience during my stay at Clarendon.|
|29-Sep-2014||711 DENISON HOUSE LANTERNS COURT||The stay was good as ever, its just that i would have loved all facilities to be in place when i arrived...the broadband was not recharged and I had to wait for more then 24 hours to get it done..the landline was the major disappointment as it was not connected at all, but i would like to mention the gesture by your staff to come to the apartment and provide me a mobile phone with a 20 quid top up..else everything was perfect and have always enjoyed staying with Clarendon serviced apartments in the last 5 years|
|29-Sep-2014||04 CLARENDON GARDENS||Quality of apartment very high and items provided well thought out. many congratulations! Staff also quick to respond to queries.|
|29-Sep-2014||14 - 140 MINORIES||There was no hot water in the bathroom in my apartment. Clarendon claimed that there was hot water for a week before finally acknowledging that there wasn't any. They then took nearly two weeks in an attempt to fix it, citing that they needed approvals from procurement to buy the heater etc etc, but nothing had been done by the time I left. Clarendon did not update me on how the process of fixing the fault was going, I had to call them up everyday, only to be stalled with "we're working on it". Clarendon did not even offer to move me to a different apartment on their own accord, I had to request it myself. Terrible service, and I won't be back.|
|29-Sep-2014||01 CLARENDON GARDENS||The apartment was nice but would have the following comments:
- the welcome pack could be bigger
- the replacement of shower gel was not generous.
- the one time needed to use the out of hours service, it didn't work, no one called me back and I had no TV, kettle etc for an evening.
|29-Sep-2014||02 CLARENDON HOUSE||Excellent place to stay - only downside is the poor quality of the fans during the summer.|
|29-Sep-2014||702 DENISON HOUSE LANTERNS COURT||Bed unconfortable
Apartment 30.5 degrees for period of entire stay and air con wasn´t working - extremely uncomfortable conditions
Because of temperature, had to have bedroom window open. This is the second time I have stayed in an apartment in Denison House that faces apartments to both the left and right. The noise from other apartments and in the square below is until all hours.
The heat and noise made sleeping impossible.
|29-Sep-2014||Apt 4D CLEVELAND RESIDENCES||Whilst the location and apartment are just great, on arrival there was a ceiling mounted carbon monoxide alarm ringing as the battery life must have been low. Having just spent 10 hours on a plane, with significant jet lag I was not impressed by the response when I rang the issue in. I was told that the request for someone to look at the alarm and / or change batters was logged as urgent but not once during the 5 day stay did anyone contact me or come around to resolve the alarm. This prevented any rest, sleep, or normal activities such as watching TV, etc.|
I can’t apologise enough for the fact that we didn’t come and replace the battery in the alarm. It was an issue that somehow slipped past us in Guest Services and is definitely not to our usual standard. I am really sorry for the inconvenience caused and completely understand your frustration.
I hope you will come back and stay with us at Clarendon and give us another chance to prove ourselves to you.

|29-Sep-2014||57 GOOCH HOUSE||It was nice experience with Clarendon appartment. Especislly is you face any problem its got resolve in no time.... I am indian, so I have feeling little odd only to see english channels, one of collegue just pointed once to customer service.. And you can't believe what happened.... evening it self we found new setup with Indian channels.... I would recommend Claredon as one of best place to Live in ...
Much I loved the London, equally I loved to live in Clarendon... Thanks your support and hospitality.. Cheers :)
|29-Sep-2014||075 DISCOVERY DOCK EAST||Wonderful as always!|
|06-Sep-2014||15 4 STEWARD STREET||great apartment, but we don't like the organisation. (too late information about change to an other apartment|
|03-Sep-2014||13 GOOCH HOUSE||The apartment was good and clean.
The heat in the corridors was terrible. The heat was captured in the hallways on the apartment level and in the main corridors on the ground floor.
There also was no air-conditioning in the appartment, even though there was a panel for it. I also do understand that the heat this year wasn't normal for London.
The shower head was stuck in one position and it wasn't a pleasant showering experience, especially being there for work and for 3 weeks.
|02-Sep-2014||04 CLARENDON HOUSE||Apartment was very sapcious and generally in good condition. However, the carpeted floor everywhere had a distinctive old and stuffy feeling. It would be far better to have wooden or laminex floor.|
|01-Sep-2014||08 WRAYSBURY HALL||Very good, clean, friendly, convenient|
|01-Sep-2014||04 CLARENDON GARDENS||Great space and terrific service. We have used them for years and plan to use again in the future.|
|01-Sep-2014||09 - 140 MINORIES||Noisy, street construction, terrible bathroom, terrible water pressure in shower|
|12-Aug-2014||15 4 STEWARD STREET||Excellent stay as ever!! Looked after really well!!|
|11-Aug-2014||01 - 140 MINORIES||It is a good place, good location.|
|10-Aug-2014||1 43A CHANDOS PLACE||Good place, good service|
|06-Aug-2014||101 ONE PEPYS STREET|
|06-Aug-2014||02 WRAYSBURY HALL||I really enjoyed my stay and the friendliness of the staff. The noise level on my Sunday night was quite alarming though.|
|06-Aug-2014||APARTMENT 1 36-38 WEST STREET||Everything went very well.|
|05-Aug-2014||39A BRUSHFIELD STREET||Higher frequency of Apartment Cleaning services and timely (whenever cleaning is done) replenishment of general things like coffee, sugar, tea, etc. is much needed.|
|05-Aug-2014||13 MANNING PLACE||Great place to stay. Very convinient and clean.|
|04-Aug-2014||Apt 6B CLEVELAND RESIDENCES||It was great.|
|04-Aug-2014||Apt 6A CLEVELAND RESIDENCES||Overall very clean and well located. Would stay here again.
Would be useful to have more cutlery and glasses.
|04-Aug-2014||08 CLARENDON GARDENS||Great location, great place, please get some better fans - the rooms are way to hot!|
|04-Aug-2014||G04 ONE PEPYS STREET||Perfect|
|02-Aug-2014||APARTMENT 3 36-38 WEST STREET||it was great! clean!|
|01-Aug-2014||G06 ONE PEPYS STREET||My experience overall was good. Carmen Bewick and Jackie Moss were extremely helpful in the finalization of the booking and ensuring that I had the access code for entry prior to my arrival. The apartment was nicely kept and I appreciated the welcome basket and frig items (especially with a late evening arrival). The weekly Thursday cleaning was always facilitated and done well. The concierge (Max) was extremely friendly and helpful.
While I do understand there are policies regarding check-out I was taken aback by the customer service response when I inquired if I could do a late check-out due to flight/work schedule or if I would be able to leave my luggage and return to retrieve. To be quite honest I was taken aback by the response I received as it was very abrupt and did not lend to assistance. While I understand some times a policy has to be maintained how its presented as well as trying to afford an alternative solution can lend to the overall experience of the customer. Ultimately I really appreciated Jackie Moss offering her additional assistance to my query after receipt of the original email response. She inquired with the concierge and ultimately provided a possible solution I could engage.
Suggestion: remember overall service is not just limited to the apartment facilitates but includes interaction from staff with consumers.
Despite the above I would look to uses Clarendon again - both personal and business - and hope that the incident above would not occur again.
|22-Jul-2014||01 - 140 MINORIES||Very noisy, cheaply made apartment. Nice stay, good location.|
|21-Jul-2014||G07 ONE PEPYS STREET||Very well kept, nice appliances, good service and repairs when necessary, easy move-in and move-out|
|21-Jul-2014||39D BRUSHFIELD STREET||Easy to find, instructions were clear, location of apartment was good, cleaning service was good and when I requested it, allergy free bedding was included.
the only issues I would have are the noise of the apartment - it was basically impossible to sleep as the windows are not double glazed/ don't provide any sound proofing and the fact that some of the furniture and fittings looked a bit battered and worn (e.g. handles missing from hall closets, stains on sofa, chunks out of the base of kitchen cupboards) - these should be repaired promptly
|18-Jul-2014||306 ONE PEPYS STREET||The sliding door in the living room doesn't work. I have signalled this twice and someone came and tinkered with it twice, with no results whatsoever. I assume it cannot be repaired, but will need to be replaced. This is obviously more costly, but should be done nevertheless, given that there is no other way for airing that part of the flat. By the way, this is also not entirely satisfactory in the bedroom, where the (white) blinds are placed in such a manner that the windows can only be opened up to a couple of inches.|
|18-Jul-2014||Apt 4B CLEVELAND RESIDENCES||It was great! No complaints at all and better than other serviced apartments I have used.|
|18-Jul-2014||907 COBALT POINT LANTERNS COURT||Good experience|
|17-Jul-2014||44 GOOCH HOUSE||The initial apartment we reserved in Holburn suddenly became unavailable, just a few days before arrival. A substitute was offered in Hammersmith. This could have been a major problem if we'd needed to be in the City (i.e. for work), luckily this was a vacation stay and we worked around it. We got an upgrade from 1 bed to 2 bed apartment which was welcomed. Arrival instructions excellent, condition of apartment excellent. Location ended up being perfect for us, so it all worked out. We would stay there again and recommend Clarendon to friends.|
|17-Jul-2014||APARTMENT 7 36-38 WEST STREET||Very noisy|
|17-Jul-2014||704 DENISON HOUSE LANTERNS COURT||The apartment was extremely warm and therefore uncomfortable. I was in a corner apartment. The noise from neighbouring apartments until early into the morning meant either having the window open for fresh air and staying awake due to noise, or having the window shut to muffle the noise with a stuffy room.
It would be helpful if there was foil and cling film in the kitchen to better facilitate being able to use the kitchen and make meals.
I still rate Clarendon above other similar service providers in the Canary Wharf region.
|17-Jul-2014||06 CLARENDON HOUSE||The internet was a bit of a problem with no access at all the first 4 or 5 days and then it would still cut out randomly.
We did not have the correct instructions for the new washer.
Other than that, I LOVE this place and I'll always stay here - it is just sooo convenient. The maid service is good. The booking agent is excellent. Can't wait to go back.
|09-Jul-2014||07 CLARENDON HOUSE||awesome service, loved the location. The apt was perfect.|
|03-Jul-2014||54 GOOCH HOUSE||I was awesome!!! I had an amazing experience staying at your serviced apartments..!! It's just excellent..!! If I come again in UK, I will definately choose this property again.
Thanks for all your services and helps.
|26-Jun-2014||39B BRUSHFIELD STREET||Very clean, precious apartment|
|26-Jun-2014||503 ONE PEPYS STREET||Wonderful as usual.|
|24-Jun-2014||72 GOOCH HOUSE||Service was excellent.|
|19-Jun-2014||Apt 4B CLEVELAND RESIDENCES||The place was nice and the service was good, but all the construction going on across the street and next door made for not the best experience. I was woken up a lot by loud pounding on the bedroom wall or loud drilling.
I did like how Clarendon provided some groceries when I arrived. I didn't know where the grocery store was so it was nice having some things to hold me over for a few days. The housekeeping staff also did a great job.
|19-Jun-2014||72 GOOCH HOUSE||Excellent location, nice clean apartment that is well maintained.|
|19-Jun-2014||097 DISCOVERY DOCK EAST||Check in and check out procedures were very good. The aprtment is located in a very good location for my visits there and the overall facility is well taken care of and clean. The apparment was generaly in good condition and was well stocked. The welcome package with food and drikns was a very nice touch and appreciated. There were however a few issues. 1) The shower head did not spray water correctly. 2) The cook top did not work.|
|19-Jun-2014||03 34A ARTILLERY LANE||Great space and service!|
|19-Jun-2014||12 MANNING PLACE||All good|
|19-Jun-2014||101 ONE PEPYS STREET||I though that someone wil be going to make the faly every day, during my stay was only one time.|
|19-Jun-2014||626 DENISON HOUSE LANTERNS COURT||I like how there is a 24 hour concierge, but after hours they do almost nothing besides give new tenants keys. Also, the Clarendon crew does not start until 9am on weekdays--most people have to go to work by then.|
|19-Jun-2014||Apartment 3 59 OLD COMPTON STREET||Overall it was a good stay. The apartment was kept clean and issues were resolved quickly. The one thing I did experience that was unpleasant was the initial entry (the code I was given to retrieve my key was not correct due to being changed earlier and I stood outside of the apartment for quite a long time waiting for a resolution). In addition, the initial internet required it to be filled up (it did not start out with a full balance on it however it was quickly replaced with internet that does not require filling (which was great).|
|19-Jun-2014||74 GOOCH HOUSE||The apartment was very well kept and clean. The apartment had everything I needed and I appreciated the welcome food and drinks. Wi-fi worked well. Reception of the TV channels was mixed. The communication with the staff was not that good. I woke up one morning to no water. When I called the emergency hotline (this was on a weekend), I was told that it was a general water outage from Thames. When I looked online, Thames did not have any outage indicated in the area. About 10 minutes later I received a call from someone else from the company telling me that there was a problem with a pump in the building.|
|19-Jun-2014||08 CLARENDON GARDENS||Very clean staff pleasant but should check out there electricks|
|19-Jun-2014||39B BRUSHFIELD STREET||Lovely place, the WiFi was horrible so the router needed resetting every 10 minutes or so. Otherwise, everything was very impressive and great value. The location was fantastic with numerous food, drink, and nightlife options on the doorstep, but little noise to disrupt us in the night.
There was, however, a mouse in the apartment with us. Spotted at about 2am in the living room/kitchen... Nothing that we were remotely concerned about, but I could imagine other guests would be apoplectic...
Will happily come again and reccommend to friends, thanks for a great week!
|19-Jun-2014||APARTMENT 6 36-38 WEST STREET||Loved it, great location, clean,safe, modern, well serviced.
|19-Jun-2014||229 DENISON HOUSE LANTERNS COURT||Very well maintained apartment blocks - will stay there again|
|19-Jun-2014||02 CLARENDON HOUSE||My experience at Clarendon was good. Kew Gardens is a lovely neighbourhood. The only feedback I would give is the windows need double glazing due to the noise from the planes flying landing at Heathrow.|
|15-May-2014||10 - 140 MINORIES||nice location, good contact, they give what they promise. Nothing else is required.|
|01-May-2014||086 DISCOVERY DOCK EAST||Clean & Tidy .. only concern was parking for car was not available|
|30-Apr-2014||07 CLARENDON HOUSE||I think the accommodation was very nice and exactly what I expected from previous trips. I was able to relax and be very comfortable during my stay. Given the length of my stay (2 weeks) a needed a bit more toiletries, I was only left some on the first day. I would request that in the future the carpet is vacuumed at least once a week. The cleaning in the bedroom, kitchen and bathroom was good. I would suggets an update to the mattress in my unit or the addition of a pillow top to make it more comfortable.|
|30-Apr-2014||425 DENISON HOUSE LANTERNS COURT||Clean, modern, wifi included.
I would certainly use them again.
|29-Apr-2014||45-47C BRUSHFIELD STREET||My experience was very positive in general.
My only issue had to do with internet connection. There was either a problem with the network or with the modem itself. The connection within 45 C Brushfield street was not good so I had to connect to other local networks to go online and dont disconnect every now and then.
|29-Apr-2014||086 DISCOVERY DOCK EAST||The apartment was clean and appealing. Good facilities with a gym and pool and close to all the amenities you could wish.|
|29-Apr-2014||702 DENISON HOUSE LANTERNS COURT||The apartment was well looked after and clean and contained all the kitchen tools / appliances needed. The location was also really good. The only issue with the apartment was the temperature control didnt work. It became very hot and uncomfortable in the evenings.|
|29-Apr-2014||07 - 140 MINORIES||I had mold growing on the ceiling of my kitchen and was told that nothing could be done about it until it dries out. No one ever followed-up again regarding the mold, and I resorted to just not using my kitchen.
The carpets in the bedroom were also heavily-stained, and the bathroom had an issue with silverfish bugs (killed 2 or 3 a week.)
Thank you for taking the time to review your stay at Clarendon Minories. I am very sorry to hear that these issues marred the final week of an otherwise trouble-free stay.
Having reviewed our Helpdesk Records of your time with us I can resond to the points you raise as follows: Your colleague contacted us at lunchtime on Friday 4 April to report that a damp mark had appeared on your kitchen ceiling. She also sent us a picture. We immediately replied and sent a maintenance person to check the plumbing connections in the apartment above. As we advised you at the time, the inlet hose of the upstairs dishwasher had detached. It was immediately rectified and the leak was stopped. As you requested and as I advised in my email on Friday afternoon, we did come to the apartment early the following week and sprayed the area with an anti fungal. In our opinion, this should not have affected your using the kitchen.
We did need to let the damp patch dry out thoroughly before it could be made good and repainted and this has subsequently been done.
Although the bedroom carpet is not new, it had recently been professionally cleaned.
It is a shame you didn't let us know that you were finding silverfish in the bathroom as we would have immediately attended and treated the area. However, we have acted on your comments.
We at Clarendon do pride ourselves on our standards and take our guests' comfort very seriously and very much hope you will consider staying again.

|29-Apr-2014||APARTMENT 3 36-38 WEST STREET||Great location.
Only problem was a little mouse in the apartment but I trapped him and let him free to roam the streets of London.
|29-Apr-2014||74 GOOCH HOUSE||You do a good job and do those extra things that build customer loyalty.|
|15-Apr-2014||02 - 140 MINORIES||Actually very good but not quite excellent.
You left keys in enryway safe for my midnight arrival--that worked very well. Entrance lock code wirked great for entire stay.
WiFI was excellent and that is the KEY for my stay, along with there being a table I could work on, and very comfortable bed and generally very clean.
Handles on refrigerator door were never fixed despite my complaint. Shower stall is very small and too tight, makes shower difficult.
Kitchen refrigerator was very good. Never used cooktop but did use micro wave and microwave worked well.
Some bad curry cooking smells in hallways--need more frequent deodorant sprayng of hallways.
Key problem: you should install a safe in the apartment. NOt too much expense, and would give me much greater feeling of security for valuables. THIS IS THE BIGGEST SINGLE ISSUE THAT MIGHT PREVENTME STAYING AT CLARENDON IN THE FUTURE.
|14-Apr-2014||10 - 140 MINORIES||Good position of the apartment. Good furniture. Easy to get the keys etc. Shower doors quickly repaired when I informed of the problem.
Only one issue: the elevator stopped working on Thursday 27 March and was not fixed when I left the apartment on Friday morning the 28th.
|07-Apr-2014||104A DISCOVERY DOCK EAST||I had a comfortable stay at the Discovery Dock. Thanks.|
|05-Apr-2014||G04 ONE PEPYS STREET||Excellent apartment for my business trip to London.|
|02-Apr-2014||Apt 4D CLEVELAND RESIDENCES||there was an inordinate amount of noise during the day -- from 8am onward, there was construction across the street right outside the windows (that big building being built on CLeveland) as well as banging and clanging from the construction right next door to the lounge and outside.
the hot water in the shower and the bath was never hot. I never had a hot shower
in the flat.
I also could have used an extra blanket on the chilly nights. The pillows were not soft being fiberfill. would have be great to have at least one down pillow. I ended up getting neck aches because of the pillows...
other than that I enjoyed my stay ! thank you!
|02-Apr-2014||07 CLARENDON GARDENS||The apartment was of a good standard. It was serviced weekly to a high standard.The Customer Service and other Clarendon personnel were helpful and efficient.|
