Moving to Berkshire and finding properties that match a specific standard is a very hard task. This tallest building in the heart of town centre, Maidenhead, has met all our standards and with a good welcome from the property management team with a welcome kit made our hearts melt. This building makes us feel at home with the fresh fragrance at the entrance , 2 door security level, sparkling cleanliness , changing lights on the outer side of the building, spectacular big space on the rooftop common area and much more. Our welcome was done by Danny who has been fabulously accommodating with any needs and queries we had. Danny helped us out with a very smooth move to the building through the parking area even on a non working day “saturday” by giving us a quick tour on friday so that we don’t face any problem. This advanced preparation , professionalism impressed us a lot. After we moved in smoothly we did notice a few things that needed repair or attention which again was resolved very quickly. The windows were cleaned by the professional cleaners and the housekeeping staff cleaned our balcony.

Please review your development:

1. We loved the Berkshire development inside outside both and also building management is fabolus.
2. Love to live in highrise building with spectular views.
3. Great furniture selection and white wood works.
4. As we have rented out furnished apartment it would be great if we would have given TV, microwave and vaccum cleaner as well with other invetory.
5. Apartment is very well designed with lots of storage.

Please share one thing (or more) which you wish you had known before you moved in:

1. Yes we would like to have our window glasses tint so we can have some more privacy.
2. As we are on top floor and we dont have any shade that save our balcony from piegen waste/beat.
3. Also it would be great if we have our baclony LED light fixed/ outer side looks more elegant.

How has the building management responded to any problems or issues you have raised:

Very Promptly. We are very statisfied with Building management.

Excellent development right in the heat of town

Review Date Nov 2021

Maidenhead is a great market town which is expanding in terms of shopping and eating options. Lovely developments popping up by the water.

Please review your development:

Excellent development right in the heat of town and within a short walk to the train station. The building is kept clean and tidy with secure entry and exit points. Gated parking option is a huge bonus.

Please share one thing (or more) which you wish you had known before you moved in:

I decided to go for the furnished option but as I didn’t view the apartment before taking it I wasn’t aware of the furniture in the flat. Personal preference but would have probably chosen unfurnished to have a comfier sofa after having moved in.

How has the building management responded to any problems or issues you have raised:

The management team are only a text or call away. Really handy there is on site support.

Poor accommodation

Review Date Nov 2021

There is not much around in terms of restaurants or bars/pubs. Shopping centre nearby. Tesco and sainsbury. Anti-social behaviour is very bad. Thefts weekly from the property. Garage usually broken which results in car damage or thefts. Entrances not secure as they break. Lifts break.

Please review your development:

Development could of been fantastic, good plans and lay out very good. Apartments spectacular on first viewing.

Almost everything breaks, no running water has happened numerous times. Lifts rarely work which is a nightmare as only way to the car park is the lift. Massive hold outside due to water pipe bursting, never repaired. No visitors parking. Antisocial behaviour daily. People breaking into bin area and sleeping their using drugs. Needles found. Carpets on staircase not proper adhesive so falling off.

Please share one thing (or more) which you wish you had known before you moved in:

I wish I knew all the issues and I wouldn’t of moved in here.

How has the building management responded to any problems or issues you have raised:

Very slowly. Out of areas rarely answers. Not helpful.

Nice flat, but things could be better.

The building is close to Tesco and to the train and bus station which is a big plus for us, who don’t own a car.
The area is mostly peaceful and it feels safe to walk at night.

Please review your development:

Overall the development looks nice, it’s modern, and we are happy with the design of the interior.
On the negative side, the lift is often not working, the doors at the main entrance have not been working for a while, and we have experienced people throwing cigarette butts and trash(paper) on our balcony from the floors above several times. We often have to close our windows due to the strong smell of weed from other residents.

Please share one thing (or more) which you wish you had known before you moved in:

Overall we are very happy to live in this building, even though a few things could be improved.

How has the building management responded to any problems or issues you have raised:

Our landlord has been very nice and kind to us, but our issue with water running down from the window when it’s raining has not been taken care of in 4 months by the managers of the building.
