What’s Cove Landmark Pinnacle like?
These luxurious serviced apartments, in Canary Wharf, are housed in a 75-storey building – the tallest residential block in Europe. The Cove apartments can be found on the first 10 floors, and many have panoramic views over the Isle of Dogs and River Thames.
How dog-friendly is Cove Landmark Pinnacle?
It’s great. Dogs are welcome in all of the rooms and apartments, but you’ll need to bring your own beds, bowls and food. There is no additional charge for pets, but you will need to pay a one-off deep clean fee. This varies on the size of your accommodation and how long you stay. We paid £25 to cover our one-night booking. To see the potential cleaning costs, click here. Dog owners will also be asked to read and sign Cove’s pet policy when they check in. This essentially confirms you will keep your pet on a lead in all public areas, won’t leave them in the apartment unsupervised and are happy to pay for any potential damage they cause.
Tell me more about Cove Landmark Pinnacle
There are 162 apartments at Cove Landmark Pinnacle, ranging from studios to two-bedroom apartments. All of them are nice and bright, thanks to floor-to-ceiling windows, and they’re also air conditioned – very welcome in the height of summer! Many also have balconies. We booked to stay in a large studio apartment but were upgraded to a one-bedroom apartment, which was a lovely surprise. There was plenty of room for us all to spread out and I loved the retro vibe and mid-century furniture.
Our apartment had a full kitchen and dining area and a spacious lounge decorated in earthy tones of cream, orange and green. Cosy throws were draped across the sofas and armchairs and thoughtful little touches such as lamps, rugs, ceramic ornaments and local history books made the apartment feel very homely. The bedroom, with its comfy kingsize bed and soft carpet, was a peaceful retreat and the huge fully-tiled bathroom was gorgeous. I loved the powerful rainforest shower and sustainable Sop toiletries.
If you need to do any work during your stay, you won’t have to worry about WiFi as there are 2.4Ghz and 5Ghz connections available for each apartment. There are also lots of plugs and USB charging points in each room. While there is no parking available at Cove Landmark Pinnacle, there are several public car parks nearby. The nearest is at Westferry Circus, approximately a five-minute walk away. We booked a space in advance online and paid £10 for our overnight stay.
What’s the food like at Cove Landmark Pinnacle?
All of the apartments have full kitchens so whether you want to just make some toast or cook up a roast dinner, you’ll have everything you need. Complimentary tea, coffee and milk is provided, as well as kitchen essentials such as washing-up liquid, cloths and tea towels but you’ll need to go shopping for everything else. Fortunately, there is a Tesco Express store less than a minute’s walk from Cove Landmark Pinnacle. A large Waitrose – indeed, the largest in the country – can also be found at Canary Wharf.
If you don’t fancy cooking though, there are some great dog-friendly bars, cafes and restaurants nearby. We opted to eat at Pizza Pilgrims in West India Quay, where dogs are welcome both inside and out. Ernie and Stan were even furnished with their own separate water bowls! Be sure to try the delicious Eight-Cheese Pizza, pictured above. There is also a BrewDog bar at Canary Wharf – great for burgers and beer – and the Humble Grape wine bar is pet-friendly, too.
