We were recently invited to view Go Native’s newly refurbished Lovat Lane Monument Apartments that are two minute walk away from Monument underground station. We were aware that they’d be offering the chance for guests to stay in a studio, one-bed or a two-bed apartment, so we were looking forward to the mix of accommodation we’d be seeing to add to our range of serviced apartments in London. We were also given the opportunity to view the premium studios, which aren’t too dissimilar to the standard studios. They did, however, increase in size, which is one of the main reasons for upgrading.
All of the apartments were fitted with air conditioning and were finished to a very high standard. The whole team were impressed with the attention to detail and were complimentary about the design. The amount of light and colour in the apartments makes them feel bigger than they are, whilst a number of apartments offer spectacular views of The Shard, the “Walkie Talkie” building and HMS Belfast etc. The kitchens had a touch of luxury with marbled work tops, a toaster, kettle, oven etc. with many other modern appliances that make your day that little bit easier.
The two-bed apartment we viewed had a roof top terrace that would be perfect for entertaining guests who’ll be able to soak in the scenery. There’s also a lot of storage space in the apartments, so guests will be able to bring as much or as little as they like. A few of the apartments have huge wardrobe space, providing that extra room for families or individuals who pack heavy. As we said before, there’s a not a huge difference in the standard and premium studios, which is one of the only negatives we could find. The brown wallpaper in the hallways isn’t too flattering either, as it fails to emphasise just how light and spacious the apartments actually are.
