Amazing place to live in the very heart of Manchester

Verified Resident
Verified Resident
Review Date May 2022

The designers of Moda wanted to build an enclosed , secure and vibrant place to live. A little Oasis in a bustling part of this great city. No on-site amenity was overlooked. 2 onsite gyms (one free) , Coffee shop / Café, Cycle storage, cinema rooms, workspace, rooftop sports pitch, private dining area, Amazon drop-off and a central private courtyard. It is incredibly well managed, cleaned daily , super pet friendly and the team really cares. Super fast broadband / TV service offerings. Any problems , repairs, questions and the 24/7 team react immediately, giving you that peace of mind.

But most of all , the Management team are constantly striving to make you feel part of a community. Always thinking of new ideas. Pop up restaurants and events in the courtyard, Artisan markets, Cookery schools, Music nights as well as new services (like deliveries from local places, handymen, car washing, local discounts). It feels like a family.

The team know you by name and have a real desire to make you time here as comfortable as possible.

And as always, what you put in , you get out…. meaning that the residents respect each other, noise levels are low and the place stays looking immaculate.

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

Angel Gardens, Moda is the perfect city centre place to live. Close to both Victoria and Piccadilly train station, only a couple of hundred yards for the vibrant and eclectic Northern Quarter and a few minutes from the main shopping areas. Great , safe area with good views all round. On-site parking with electric charging, in-house bin collections and incredible array of amenities within minutes

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

I couldn’t recommend Angel Gardens more. I have rented so many apartments in Manchester ( for colleagues, guests, friends etc). Now I am renting myself, I am so glad I made this choice as the rest didn’t compare

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

Absolutely, faultlessly and immediately. From day and night concierge, Maintenance team , event management, renting / onboarding team etc.. they couldn’t be better

I love living here at Moda Angel Gardens, I don’t really have anything bad to say about living here but I do wish we didn’t have to pay to use our amenities. I wish it could go back to how it was during lockdown and just book time slots on the app for free because I would use them more often such as the theater room..

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

This is the perfect location for an apartment to be in, it’s in the heart of a lot of action which is very convenient!

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

I wish I had known that we have to pay to pre-book the amenities, we pay so much for rent that I would think amenities would be at least free..

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

The building management doesn’t reply back to emails as fast as I thought they would!

Hi Chloe,

Thank you so much for the great review.

We’re pleased the location of Angel Gardens is ideal for you – there are plenty of outstanding bars, restaurants and shops within walking distance, as well as being located near good schools and green space!

If you have anything you’d like to raise with management please do come to one of our fortnightly resident forums – anyone can drop-in, at any time. See you there.

Great place to live if you want convenient and easy access to everything Manchester has to offer.

First class facilities and friendly building management, excellent gym on site and Hero fitness classes available around the corner on campus, shared communal spaces, especially the terrace in the summer is a great benefit.
Could do with air conditioning in the height of the summer.
Lifts can get busy.

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

Great location, easy access to Norther Quarter and City Center, with lots of restaurants and bars within a 5min walk. Can be noisy Friday and Saturday night if you leave the bedroom window open.

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

parking can be an issue for visitors, visitor parking would be helpful

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

building management always quick and efficient to respond

Moving to Moda has really helped build a community in Manchester. From the events to the updates I have made life long friends. I love living in the city centre. We have our own oasis with the rooftop garden and courtyard and you’d never believe we are in the heart of the city centre with its vibrant nightlife and 24/7 amenities.

Hi Scott,

Thank you for the lovely 5* review. I am so pleased you feel like Angel Gardens has been integral in building your community here in Manchester.

The location, events, amenities, and of course the people, make moving to a new city so much easier! Welcome home!

A great place to live.

The design and decor of the building is probably one of the best in the area. The facilities are also great and are well maintained. Most of the events organised throughout the year are also fun.

The management has been mostly great but higher staff turnover means some issues don’t get solved as fast as they should be.

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

Moda is situated in the perfect location in Manchester City centre. Everything is walking distance and the constant developments mean that you can find anything you want.

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

I wish I had known that the energy provider was a private company attached to Moda, impossible to change and running what looks like a monopoly over the building.

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

The management have responded well in most occasions however we still have issues with the post room.

Love the football pitch. Feel having to pay to watch things in the cinema room is a bit wrong though. Love the homely feel off the reception area and the green spaces . Wish the gym was slightly bigger and wish there was a bar in the empty slot downstairs

Bang in middle of manchester. Great location for the nightlife and shopping district. Close to victoria

Thank you, James, for taking the time to leave us feedback.

Whilst we are pet-friendly, we know not everyone wants to live on the same floor as pets – so we have specific pet-friendly floors. 🙂

Regarding the cinema room, if its not in use, feel free to drop in! The charge only applies if you want an exclusive, private booking. We also put on screenings and show football in there, which you can turn up to and don’t need to pay.

Pleased you love the pitch (and use it regularly!). See you up there… maybe in the Summer!

Our building is beautiful the views are amazing and location could not be more ideal
bang city centre location
our library and dining room are sureal
cosy and homly and always smells fresh

BATHROOMS ARE TO THE HIGHEST STANDARDS and flooring great too

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

AMAZING LOCATION, FANTASTIC STAFF (most of the time) Wouldn’t ever move out tbh and been here 3 years. only down fall of moda is the payments for bookings for amenities in a building you should get for free especially with the rent you pay! even a car park badge for a space you pay for. a bit of a joke at times

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

nothing is really any less than what you see is what you get

Eventually it can get busy in here but its always sorted in the end

The library is such a gorgeous space, and we’re happy you love the dining room too – the perfect spot to have a family dinner or a party. We’ll have the space open to all over the Christmas period for all residents to use and share the festive period as a community!
