Enormously Helpful Staff, Clean and Modern Living

Review Date Nov 2021

We recently moved in and one thing that stands out for us is its members of staff. The team are professional, polite and promptly assist with any enquiry – always going the extra mile to solve any issue making living here even more special. There was even a welcome gift and card upon arrival for us.
The Point is a well presented, modern, clean and secure place.
The building is of okay construction although some could find fault with the finer details e.g. the floor in the studio apartment is uneven in some places making it more challenging to furniture. The design makes it nice and warm during the cold spells without boosting the heating.

Please review your development:

The in-house facilities are fantastic;
– The Point has a Gym that we use nearly daily and it is never too crowded and always nice to exchange workout tips with other residents; The Point has also a Studio
– we love the Garden Room and Working Hub with panoramic views of the city;
– Residents lounge is a nice place just to chill out;
– the laundry facilities have a TV to watch while waiting or ironing clothes
– The Point has two separate TV Rooms which are like personal cinemas;
– PostBox and BringMe service makes delivery of package of any size easy

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

Suggestions, Points to be aware of
– Install additional storage cabinets or shelving
– Install an off switch for the main extractor – it is situated in the built-in cooker hood and is on constantly
– Install a quieter fridge/freezer – in a small studio, it is something to get used to, sleeping so close to the kitchenette
– Install dimmable or smart lights – they are too bright, especially in the bathroom
– Create raised gardens beds for residents to grow herbs and flowers on the terraces

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

The response from the Team was always timely, professional and very helpful.

Excellent stay at the Point

Review Date Oct 2021

The location is one of the best aspects of this property. There is a large range of both shops, bars and restaurants all within a short walking distance.

Please review your development:

The design of the building in general is extremely nice with excellent furnishings and finishings. Having facilities like the gym on site are a added bonus and make life so much easier. The staff and management in the building have been excellent during my stay so far, the ability to have a 24 hour receptionist make getting parcels delivered amazing.

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

The ability to have the bin room within the building makes recycling and throwing rubbish away much easier.

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

I had a leak in my bathroom one afternoon and it was fixed within a couple of days, with a check up the following day.

Fantastic

Review Date Oct 2021

The location is fantastic , everything I need is in walking distance. Transport is ideal as the bus stop is nearby.

Please review your development:

The facilities are very handy. The gym and study rooms are readily available and easy to access and use, saving me from travelling far. The rooftop terrace offers a great view when I need a breath of fresh air. The accommodation is clean and this is very reassuring during the pandemic.

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

That there was no kettle and microwave, however that’s something that was taken care of quickly.

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

Any issues I have had, the staff had been brilliant and helped me sort it out quickly. They are very welcoming and always ready to lend a helping hand.
