Amazing Apartment

My boyfriend and I moved into a 2 bed apartment at Chapel Wharf in late January, and it has undoubtedly exceeded expectations so far. Highly, highly recommend – particularly for young couples like us.

The overall design is sleek and modern, whilst still having that cosy element (e.g. carpets in living areas and bedrooms) which adds to the homely feel. Furniture and amenities are coordinated nicely. Super easy to clean. Insulation is really good, never cold and radiators really easy to use/control. Bathrooms in particular are stunning, and showers are nice and powerful. Plenty of storage space as well as wardrobes are large and there is ample room under the beds. The kitchen is also lovely, decent cupboard space and oven/hob great quality. The only critique we had was the size of the fridge freezer, but the management are so accommodating so we were able to request an additional portable fridge or freezer for the extra space (at no extra cost to us). Another thing I’d say is make sure you invest in an ergonomic chair if working from home, as the dining chairs are rather firm!

Facilities are excellent. Post and parcels are managed efficiently and securely, with an email notification system to let you know when your parcel has arrived. Friendly and capable maintenance team here too, no problem is ever too minor. Overall management is brilliant and questions are responded to in a timely manner. The management team also put on events for special occasions throughout the year (e.g. Valentine’s Day, Chinese New Year and Pancake Day recently), so it’s nice to live somewhere with that warm, community feel.

Honestly we couldn’t recommend Chapel Wharf highly enough. Unreal value for money too compared with others. Bring on the Manchester summer so we can take advantage of the huge balcony!

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

The area is ideal. Despite being technically classed as Salford, you can cross the river and be in the heart of Spinningfields (city centre) in less than a 10 minute walk. Absolutely loads of lovely restaurants/bars in that area. There’s a Tesco Express literally 3 minutes away which is super convenient. The Salford facing apartments (including ours) look on to the railway line and beyond, which is cool for an urban view. Whilst you can hear the trains and cars going by, it’s certainly not obtrusive as the apartments are well insulated. We feel very safe living here too.

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

I’d say the main thing is to consider which way you want the apartment to face. We are Salford facing (North West ish) which suits us, but just think about whether you want direct sun or not etc., and I know some apartments look out to other blocks so bear that in mind.

If there is one thing you would change about your flat or property what would it be:

Other than the size of the fridge freezer, absolutely nothing. We couldn’t have asked for more.

Great studio apartment

Very good facilities including a gym, mail and parcel room. Studio apartment well laid out, with living space and bedroom separated by a wall. Kitchen comes with washer/dryer, fridge with small freezer shelf and plenty of storage. Management is fantastic at sorting any problems and always easily reached. Reception staff are welcoming but not as knowledgeable about the development as management and often have to get back to you with a response to queries after they have spoken to their senior staff. Overall a great property, with pet friendly floors available, all with large balconies overlooking the city.

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

Very good access to city, shops and transport. 5 minute walk to New Street Station, slightly less to a Sainsburys Local and slightly further to a Tesco Metro. All shops/restaurants in the city centre are easily accessible on foot and the canal is easily reached within 5 minutes walk in the direction away from New Street.

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

More information from the landlord about setting up bills would have been appreciated.

If there is one thing you would change about your flat or property what would it be:

Perhaps having central heating as electric heaters drive up the electricity bills. Also having door locks that conform to British Standard as many contents insurance companies require this and these properties do not have them.

Excellent development with transport links and access to shops, bars and restaurants

The development is wonderful – very modern but delightfully so. Flats are spacious and homey, with plenty of comfortable seating. We brought some of our own furniture with us – bookcases etc – and there’s plenty of space to fit these around the existing furniture. Balconies are spacious with good views over the city. Building and facilities management are excellent with queries replied to within good time and maintenance and cleaning done regularly. Parcels are particularly good – stored securely in a central location so they can be collected at any point. Wifi included with rent and bills are reasonably priced.

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

Good access to local amenities with a Tesco Express c.5 mins away and Morrisons and Aldi both ~20 mins walk. Close to city centre so excellent access to restaurants and transport, and most places are walkable. Also walking distance from Crown Point with more shops and restaurants.

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

Bills are very reasonably priced but switch suppliers upon moving to ensure maintaining the cheapest prices!

If there is one thing you would change about your flat or property what would it be:

Not sure there is anything! Perhaps some balcony furniture included – being very nit picky!

perfect city living

Sadly we haven’t been able to use the gym/facilities yet due to covid but the actual apartment is perfect for us. It’s nice and open plan and came with all the essentials. Balcony curves round the apartment so you get the sun for longer each day. Great big wardrobe in the bedroom too so plenty space. Also the apartments are very sound-proofed. You can hear other people if you’re out in the corridor but as soon as you’re in your own flat it’s super quiet which is great. Only little negatives are that the bathroom doesn’t have a window so even though there’s an extractor fan the flat can get a bit steamy after a shower, and also there’s only two lifts in the building (which seems mad) so sometimes you wait a while for the lift but that’s not really a big issue. All of the staff are absolutely lovely, couldn’t ask for friendlier faces 🙂

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

I just moved to Birmingham so I wanted to be central. Aston Place is only a 5 minute walk from all the best city bits (shops, bars, restaurants and short walk from new street station!) but it’s right next to the lovely centenary square and mailbox and feels very safe.

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

sometimes hotel guests next door (the bar is outside) can be really loud but i guess this will be the same in any big city!

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

not had any issues to raise so far which is pretty good!
