Aparthotel review: Cove Landmark Pinnacle, Canary Wharf

The Elizabeth Line is just the latest arrival to Canary Wharf, an area that’s always in a state of development, providing a striking, modern enclave in London’s former docklands. The Cove Landmark Pinnacle is also a fairly recent arrival on the scene, having opened in November 2021. The Cove’s flagship outpost in London, it offers serviced apartments across the first ten floors of a 75-storey residential tower, and great views across the river.

Rooms & facilities

Cove Landmark Pinnacle has 162 serviced apartments over its ten floors: 72 studios and 90 one-bedroom apartments. The design is contemporary and unfussy, although striking artworks and colourful textiles stop it from feeling cold. If you want to enjoy a good view of the Thames, pick one of the 54 apartments that have a ‘winter terrace’ (basically a balcony with glass doors covering the front), a great place from which to admire the sunset. Apartments also feature fully-fitted kitchens (minus a microwave), king-size beds, a smart TV and super-fast wifi, plus a dishwasher and washer-dryer.

There’s a lovely co-working area on the first floor, alongside a yoga studio and small but nicely-presented gym, plus a lounge area downstairs.

Food & drink

Having a kitchen in your apartment is extremely handy, and there was a nice bottle of welcome wine waiting for us on arrival. However, for more food and drink options, you’ll need to head out into Canary Wharf. Luckily, this is hardly a trial – there’s everything from Brown’s to Breakfast Club, Goucho to Caravan here, plus a plethora of takeaway options to choose from. If anything, the hardest thing is narrowing down your options!

What to do nearby

For an area very much associated with corporate life, you might be surprised how much there is to do in Canary Wharf, including family-friendly activities. The Crossrail Place Roof Garden is one of the largest in London and houses fabulous, exotic plants. The Museum of London Docklands tells the fascinating story of this area of London, without shying away from any of the more disturbing aspects of Britain’s history. It’s an absolute must-visit, and admission is free. Canary Wharf is also one of London’s shopping gems; if you can’t face the crowds and hassle of Oxford Street, come here for many of the same shops with far less people!

Best for

The obvious clientele for the Cove Landmark Pinnacle would be people visiting Canary Wharf for work. However, don’t discount it for a more tourist-y break – we visited with a two-year-old and found that the accessibility, cleanliness and facilities of the area were perfect for a family trip, as was the apartment.

From £150 a night. For more information, visit the website.
