Legal & General reviews

“It has been lush living at spring wharf, the staff have been brilliant. Any issues have been sorted and fixed within a few days with no complaints. Everything at spring wharf is very easy and accessible. The flats are compact but cater to everything necessary for a working professional couple. Very pleased and impressed!” Verified resident, Spring Wharf 

“The Slate Yard is a wonderful place to live. Not only do you have everything on your doorstep, the service from the Slate Yard itself is awesome.” Verified resident, The Slate Yard

Overall, this is a great building and community to live in. Even though the exterior is not the most attractive in my opinion, the interior more than makes up for it. The furniture and design all feel very modern, especially the kitchen and bathrooms. The bedrooms are very cosy and the beds are probably the best I have ever slept on.
The staff are all incredibly helpful and pleasant. They give everything a personal touch and make your stay so much better.
The amenities are great, especially the residents lounge. It feels like home being down there with the TV, the ample seating, hot drinks and WiFi.
I do believe that the parking situation is not ideal as it is quite expensive to park in the building as well as the NCP. It would be good if they had some sort of deal with the NCP to provide cheaper parking for residents.

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

The location is perfect as it is pretty much in the heart of the city but just outside so there is some peace and quiet. Being next to the canal is lovely and the green space outside is very pleasant.

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

I wish I would have known about the poor parking situation before moving in.

I have lived in different rented flats in Manchester and I have to say that the slate yard is just the best.
It is a very nice place that is located next to the calm Irwell river (I always sit on the sofa and stare at the river! It makes me really calm and the sofa is way too comfy!) We’ve got 24/7 security and the staff and neighbours are so friendly and helpful. The design is simple and good, which is my ideal interior design style. Gym is also provided and the maintenance team is the best! When something went wrong, they just come and fix them as soon as possible every time. Lastly, the common area is soooo good!!! I really love the style that I can both work and relax there.
The only cons is traffic. It should be the reason of this is a new developed zone so the buses are not fully developed (I mean the variety of bus routes), but there’s a train station next to us.
In large, everything’s good and it’s so convenient to buy food and hang out. It’s a very good experience to live in there

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

Good location that I can walk to Selfridges and good variety of restaurants around here. Marks and Spencer’s and coop are just 5 minutes walk from the slate yard. But traffic is still a problem. Traffic jams in peak hours as one of the highway entrances is jus next to us. And if there’s more buses to the Chinatown, the university, Piccadilly and salford would be way better.

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

None. Here’s just perfect for me.

The overall experience at West Tower is breathtaking. It has been built and furnished to the highest standards. Best thing you could hope for within its price range. As of the end of August, the building is still the pilot phase so I appreciate that staff are still settling in, but they have been extremely nice with me. Something to keep in mind though is that the surrounding area of Deansgate Square is still under construction so it will get noisy while the windows are open. However, this should come to an end in several months. Overall, it is absolutely worth it

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

Area is still under construction so it gets pretty noisy during the day. However, closing the window will eliminate most of the noise. The facilities such as gym, pool and garden are still be launched in several months time. I believe that it will be wonderful when it opens. Staff are really nice but I sometimes feel like they are very unresponsive to requests (physically and by email), but I think that this will get much better over time when the staff settle in, as the building is still a few months old. Besides that, I have pretty much enjoyed everything in the building such as the gorgeous designs and good quality of the furniture. Something worth noting is that they provide free tea and coffee.

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

The appliances are almost silent which is something amazing. However, I was surprised to find out that there was no microwave although I was specifically told that there is one before I moved in.

I really like the Slate Yard, it has everything we need on-site and the staff are absolutely amazing. My main issue is that even though it’s only 2 years old, it is already becoming “out of date”. The hobs, ovens and other appliances are already feeling old, you can find much better equipped and sized flats to rent in very similar neighbourhoods for almost the exact same price. We love living here and having spinningfields on our doorstep but we have found another block of flats, managed and owned by the same company, that have far more modern fixtures and are much bigger for the same price!

I must say though the Slate Yard building is lovely, the outside space is spectacular and the staff will go above and beyond to make sure you are well looked after, nothing is too much for them. They are all a massive credit to the company!

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

The area is amazing, Spinningfields itself has security walking around even on Sundays! So many lovely restaurants and most of them are dog-friendly which is a massive plus! Driving is a bit difficult at the moment due to construction going on everywhere but once that dies down I’m sure it will become a lot easier! It’s a short walk to the arndale and there are a few supermarket type shops on the way, all in all, an amazing location!

Everything I wanted to know was conveyed before I moved in
