“Fantastic Location for Families”
Reviewed 21 October 2012

We stayed in one of the 2 bedroom apartments for 6 nights. We were traveling with our 2 young children. The location was very central and was very close to the tube, Kensington Gardens and supermarkets. You are also within walking distance of the Natural History Museum. Nothing was far away at all. The apartment had a well stocked kitchen which meant that you were able to cook dinners easily, which is handy when you have young children. It had an oven, microwave, dishwasher and cooktop. There was also a combination washer/dryer. The living areas and bedrooms were all a good size and the beds were all comfortable. The apartment was very clean and well maintained. We were on the 9th floor and had great views to the London Eye. You can hear the underground, but only as a dull background noise - it is not an issue at all. I would recommend this apartment to families, and I would quite happily stay there again.

I am so upset and disappointed right now. I have read many reviews but finally I have made a decision choosing point west, crownlawn, which is a mistake. I have requested hardwood floor because I am allergic to carpet dust, clean room clean bathroom, no walking in maze in order to get to room. However I have got one old bedroom with old carpeted, the bathroom is also old, you have to pull the string to turn on the light, mould on the wall and some on the floor, the dust is cover on the edge of the carpet, chairs and sofa in the living room are so old too. I am so sad indeed because I do hope to have a good memorable time at point west with my husband and daughter. I wonder why all the photo you have shown on Facebook is very nice compare to what I am staying right now. However I have made a call to crownlawn'staff, he promised to send someone to see me at the first thing in the morning, therefore I do hope some good thing may happen.

Location is a big selling point of this apartment. It's a 20-30 minute walk from some of the best shopping streets in London - High St Kensington, Knightsbridge, Sloane Square, Kings Rd etc. If culture is your preference, the South Kensington museums are just down the road, or you can walk to Kensington Palace, Hyde Park and the Royal Albert Hall.

The apartments themselves are well laid out and comfortable. The bedrooms are small, but the living/dining area is a good size, and we had wonderful views over the London skyline from a 7th floor east facing apartment.

The kitchen is reasonably well equipped (although bizarrely no cereal bowls!) and there are two good supermarkets close by (Waitrose and Sainsbury's)

There is some noise from the underground lines which run past on two sides, although I only noticed it if the windows were open.

I've marked it down only for some minor lack of attention to detail - only one tea towel and only two bathroom towels. No coat hooks and a shortage of coat hangers was a bit of a pain.

I'd definitely stay there again, it's a great area of London to explore.

Room Tip: The higher the floor the better for views and quiet. East facing for the London skyline

I stayed in a two bedroom apartment for two weeks. When I first came the carpet was really dirty, the clothes washer did not work, the walls were all scuffed up (can't they afford a can of paint). the tubs in both bathrooms were gross and had paint peeling off, and black spots all over them. The concierge was not knowledgeable of the area and all of our questions where answered the same I don't know. Then we come to how many elevators and corridors you half to walk in order to get to the smelly apartment, and i mean really FAR. Management of crown lawn is rude and would not listen to costumers. I believe put your money in a better place.

We stayed at Point West August 2012. What a phenomenal place! Our apartment was clean and perfect! Very large family/dining room and two large bedrooms. It was centrally located to all that we needed and very close to the Gloucester Road station. The reception desk personnel were very friendly and extremely helpful! We will definitely be staying here on our next visit to London!

After staying a number of days in the grange tower bridge & then touring in southern england, we moved into the Point West apartments by Crown Lawn in kensington so we would have space for out daughter to stay with us.

It was a great to able to prepare our own meals in a very well equipped kitchen & use a very nice dining room.

The location is fantastic, right between Waitrose & sainsbury supermarkets, also very good restaurants & take aways surrounding the building. We had a fantastic indian takeaway from The Delhi brasserie just in front of the building (highly recommend). This is a very nice looking indian restaurant which I thought would not do takeaways, but they did, with a 15% discount off dine-in prices.

There is also italian & thai restaurants right outside the front which we didn't have time to try but looked great.

As we had a car (a volvo estate - quite large) we used the secure parking which was a bit of a challenge but the crown lawn representative gave us a lot of help in accessing it. To be quite honest parking in london is very difficult and being able to bring the car in central london & park right under the apartment was fantastic. We arrived in london after 6pm when the congestion tax cuts out, so not charged.

Another positive about the apartment was the very high quality bed linen, as good as any five star hotel's.

I'd like to comment on some of the issues raised by previous reviewers. These apartments are not perfect like a five star hotel. We stay in many 4 & 5* hotels & they are a different experience & cost a lot more, especially in london. The apartments give you something else - your own space & opportunity to self cater, which to us is an outstanding benefit. The service is not the same as a 4 or 5* hotel & is reflected in the price.
