Amazing Place to Rent

Verified Resident
Verified Resident
Review Date Apr 2021

This is a very conveniently positioned residence. Its in the heart of birmingham in a safe and secure area with all the shops and local amenities at your doorstep. The design of each apartment is modern and fresh which makes it a pleasure to live in. The management are always on hand to help with any questions or queries and will go out of their way to make you feel comfortable. Everyone is very friendly including the staff, management and the residents.

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

An amazing place to rent, convenient and vibrant. Conveniently located in the heart of birmingham with easy access to local bars and restaurants and the best of the best shopping is available at your doorstep. The apartments are modern and well insulated and there is little or no noise from neighbouring residents. The bin area is conveniently located in the lobby and is open 24/7 and there is a co-co located on site for those emergencies.

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

Parking is a very big issue. I wish parking was included within the rental price, the only options are underground parking which is currently an 8-12 week wait alternatively you need to apply for an annual permit.

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

At present we have not had any problems which are to be reported, its been just over a month and everything seems to be smooth sailing.

Manager Response

Thank you so much Aly & Syeda!

Your words read like a smooth, motivational snippet from an official brochure.
Much thanks for that! We’re glad that you have chosen us and appreciate what we have to offer.

See you around!

Amazing facilities and a lovely team

I really enjoy being a resident at Spring Wharf. My one-bedroom flat has a modern, yet simple, design with big windows in the lounge and bedroom, meaning that we get lots of lovely natural light. The flat is an ideal size for me and my partner. The under-bed storage is a clever feature and after buying a couple of extra storage units, there is now plenty of space for all our stuff! I originally found the kitchen worktop space a bit limiting, but that was easily solved by adding another unit in here too. The extra facilities at Spring Wharf are amazing! I love having a shared garden space to sit out in and the resident’s lounge with its free hot drinks is a really lovely touch. The gym is brilliant and although it is quite small it is very functional and I use it regularly. Last but not least, the team at Spring Wharf are wonderful! They ensured we has a smooth move-in and are always very friendly and helpful!

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

The location is great! There is a Tesco Express, Lidl and M&S less than 10 minutes walk away and Sainsbury’s is only 5 minutes in the car! Oldfield Park station is really close by (about 7 mins walk) and if you need to go to Bath Spa station it’s about a 30 min walk or 10 mins in a taxi! I regularly walk into town, but there are also lots of restaurants and shops nearby. For example, there are some lovely cafes and shops on Moorland Road or Chelsea Road, which are both only 10 minute walks away! You are also not far from the river pathway and can either walk towards town, or if you go in the other direction you come to a lovely pub called the Locksbrook Inn.

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

It is advertised that you can make the apartment your own by decorating, but it is worth noting that you have to pay an approved handyman to come and do any of the work for you.

Amazing experience but lacking a modern touch

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

I’m renting a lovely one bedroom apartment. It is simply stunning and it’s the perfect size

I heard about the development on a website. It led me to the spring wharf website and I was immediately attracted to the price and location. I set up a viewing which took about a week or two to fulfil. Being a student, you have to be cautious of where you live just to avoid being late for lectures and to be able to be close to city centre, train stations, the supermarket, etc. Spring Wharf ticks all these boxes. The only reason why I have given four stars is because my apartment doesn’t come with a built-in or any type of microwave. As you would expect a microwave is an essential item in any home. This one detail has been the most jarring thing about the apartment. Aside from this, the prices advertised on the website initially have gone up (probably because of a higher demand). As you would expect, I wasn’t exactly thrilled about it because I’m a student, but I couldn’t pass the opportunity to live here because it’s such a great location!
In conclusion, I would highly recommend the development!

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

It’s not extremely close to Sainsbury’s

I wish I had known there was no microwave

Great place to live!

The design and interior are absolutely beautiful! Staff who work there onsite are SUPER friendly and the communal areas are always kept clean and tidy. They collect parcels on my behalf as I work away a lot and keep them safe for me until I’m home which is an invaluable service! Only reason I didn’t give 5 stars is due to when moving in, we were showed visitor parking bays but once we moved in they told us that actually we aren’t allowed visitors to park and we pay a lot of money for the car parking space to not be allowed visitors. However, this is only minor as everything else is great!

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

Dislike no parking if you wish to have visitors. However Town is only a 20 minute walk away so great location!

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

I wish I had known we were not allowed visitors parking. Other than this, everything is perfect and the purpose built flats have thick walls so we never hear our neighbours beside or above us!
