“Safe and secure residential complex with everything needed nearby, including train station, shops and fast food takeaways. Also a short bus ride to Heathrow airport. On site, the staff are very helpful and make great efforts to organise social activities for residents. These factors make this a great place to live!” – Zena, verified resident at be:here Hayes

“Customer service is second to none with our manager being on top of everything from receiving our parcels, organising events to keeping us up to date of whatever work is going on in the building. I was very impressed when we first moved in and he had already memorised our names … did not expect that when you know that there are so many people in the building. Overall, life here is great!” – Stephanie J, verified resident at be:here Hayes

Community spirit and the community vibe that Gatefold offers is rare to find in London.

Review Date May 2020

Gatefold is a great residential complex to live in. One of the most significant positives is the community spirit and the community vibe which Gatefold offers, quite rare to find in London. The building management has been very supportive to residents’ feedback and always deliver, especially the very proactive property management team. Kash with the support of his team (Eddie, Brian and Hayley) have been splendid. They have been core in maintaining the community spirit especially during the current Covid times, by organizing community events and the most recent fitness events which is a savior to lot if us residents who are stuck in our apartments for the last 2 months. The fitness events were brilliantly organised ensuring that social- distancing was maintained throughout the event. Kash and his team have gone an extra mile to maintain the community spirit even during such challenging times.

Please tell us what you like and dislike about this area:

The area has changed and evolved since I moved over 3 years ago. Nothing to dislike – in fact the area has become much more favorable since other developments opened up. A good change in demographics has made it more attractive in the last 2-3 years.

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

The property management has done a good job with this aspect.

What is the best feature of your home:

The Patio and the roof top is the best feature especially during summers. With the current crisis with social distancing measures in place my private patio has been a blessing.

Manager Response

Thank you for your kind review, we hope you stay with us for more years to come.

Great team, great place to live,happy to BeHere!

The design is modern with high quality fixtures and fitting, the flats are rented furnished with high end furniture. The team at BeHere ismade out pf professional and friendly people, any request you may have they are very flexible and try to go the extra mile for you. It is indeed a great value for the money you pay. The community is of a very diverse background and you cand find the most surprising nationalities and occupations. From pilots, flight attendants and movie cast staff to doctors and even athletes. It is a secure gated complex, with cctv on every corner. The are is not the best due to some shady stuff going around in hayes, but the location of the building is great for commuting because Hayes&Harlington train station is within a 5min walk. Overall i would say this is the best place around Heathrow airport for people working there and even for people working central London because you are just 20 minute train ride away.

Please tell us what you like and dislike about this area:

There are a lot of shops in a 15 min walk radius from the building, inclufing ASDA ,Tesco , Lidl etc. The transport links sre great you have the Hayes&Harlington station and a variety of buses.

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

I would have liked to know aboit the constructions in the vicinity, hopefully will be done soon.

Great staff, Nice Building, Good Transport Links

I have lived at this development for 2.5 years and don’t really have a bad word to say about it. The process of arranging a viewing and moving in was hassle-free, and since then the staff have been very accommodating and helpful – especially the property manager Kash Sharma. Whenever I have a query or concern the staff reply give me their full attention and always make sure to address it quickly.
Since moving in there’s been a couple minor problems with our flat (e.g. incomplete sealant in a bathroom or a loose window lock), or with the development (car park shutter breaking), but in every case the building management have made sure to resolve it quickly and not let it become an inconvenience for the residents.
Last, but not least, a roof terrace with electric bbqs, ping pong tables, and hammocks was constructed this past summer. This is a great area that will adds value to the development.

Please tell us what you like and dislike about this area:

The property is a few minutes walk away from Hayes and Harlington station, which will get you to Paddington in around 20 minutes, Ealing Broadway in 10 to get the tube, or can take you to Heathrow in around 15.
There’s also a number of bus routes that stop by the station e.g. a bus to Heathrow that’s cheaper than the train.
The high street has your standard types of shops, and there’s a good variety of food stores within walking and driving distance.
I’ve not dined out in Hayes, and only ordered a couple takeaways, but again there’s a good variety of cuisines on offer.
My only dislike of the area is that it can be slightly messy and ‘rough’ in areas, mainly because of the area’s lower-class and migrant demographic.

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

Having lived in Hayes for a year prior to moving into this property, I was aware of how erratic the traffic can be. New building developments close to the train station have made this slightly worse.

The Easiest Living Experience

Be:here Hayes has a really modern exterior, there were only a few minor design hiccups that were quickly resolved by the property management team e.g whistling windows. The owners of the property held focus groups to ensure they were building what residents wanted and the rooftop renovation was going to be fit the needs of the residents. It is great value for money when you look at other local alternatives even as close as the next block, you can pay an extra 25% for much less living space. There are great facilities such as underground parking, a parcel office, security keys to get in and out of the buildings so strangers can not get in.

Please tell us what you like and dislike about this area:

My boyfriend and I were some of the first tenants to move into the complex, the thing that initially drew us here was the easy public transport link, we’ve since renewed our tenancy twice. The space you get you for your rental price is non comparable, we have 2 big spacious double bedrooms with an en-suite bathroom upstairs. We love being able to go upstairs to bed, it gives it more of a homely feel. The recently renovated roof terrace is a great space to hang out in the summer time, and has little pods to sit in if there is a light drizzle, there is also roof top games and bbq’s. Ultimately the reason we love this place is the super friendly property management team, Kash and Eddie are always on hand to sort out any issues and the added bonus is there is always someone in to receive your parcels. The local town is only a 5 minute walk away and there is a big supermarket only 5-10 minute walk away.

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

One thing I wish I’d known before I moved in was that cross rail would be delayed

An excellent development

The building is modern with plenty of space. I particularly liked the fact that the walkways were external, rather than using up internal space which would have sacrificed flat space. The roof terrace is excellent in summer with lots of seating.

The on site secure parking was a big bonus with excellent transport links via road, rail and air (Heathrow being 1 stop away).

There was an active community in the development even during lockdown with the management team being very friendly and attentive when needed.

Please tell us what you like and dislike about this area:

In lockdown we discovered a wealth of local areas which were a joy to explore. In particular the nearby park and the Grand Union Canal.

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

I wish I had discovered Maemes Peri Peri and Desserts on Uber Eats sooner… YUM

What is the best feature of your home:

The large bedrooms with a nice even split between the two in terms of floor space.
