Lovely gated community

Verified Resident

Apartments are well designed with adequate space and natural light, along with modern amenities. Staff is friendly and helpful. However, residents can be noisy (running about) but apart from this noise isolation is superb (train station is within view but can not be heard when windows are closed). WiFi is included which is always a plus – but certain fixtures and machines have faults way sooner than one would expect for a new development.

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

The train station is 5 minutes away by foot, and the “town” is about 8 minutes away.

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

A noisy person would move in upstairs.

Secure and friendly residential complex with everything you need nearby!

Verified Resident

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!

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

Excellent transport links and local amenities. Area itself is not the best, but within the complex all is good!

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

Nothing!

Well managed development, though maybe a little on the pricy end for the neighbourhood.

Verified Resident

The apartments are pretty nice, and the building management is super nice and helpful.

The actual tenancy system, how contracts are dealt with and rent paid in is excellent. It’s all online and via a portal and this is super easy to manage. I have had literally 0 issues negotiating a renewal and in fact they were really helpful when I renewed. From a landlord perspective the group are excellent and respond promptly to any concerns or communication.

The development has a few weird niggles though with heating and water, as well as the gate not working frequently. Can’t really count it against them though. It would be nice if whomever is on night duty maybe walked around the complex more and was a little more visible.

The location is good re: how close it is to the train, but the neighbourhood isn’t great and I think the pricing is based on the assumption cross rail will be there so it’s very expensive for the neighbourhood.

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

Hayes is not very nice. I’m pretty sure everyone lives there because it’s an easy commute to London.

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

Some of the apartments can be a little dark. The noise from the trains is quite loud so if you don’t like that take it into consideration (I actually quite like the sound of trains)

Great high quality living standards, much better than Fizzy were my best friend lives.

Verified Resident

I gave be:here Hayes a very good overall score because of the quality of the apartments/Building, kind and efficient service from the building manager Akash, which is always willing to go the extra mile.

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

What I like about the area is the transports to central London, which is where I work. What I dislike is luck of restaurants and high street shops. In fact there’s only a MacDonald which I don’t like and to many convenient shops and pound shop. Apart from the modern buildings the vast majority of the area has been left behind and forgotten. There’s really nothing to do. Sorry

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

Only the area. I lived in Chiswick and Wimbledon park for 20 years. Very different…

No agency, no fees, no hassle, just behere!

Verified Resident

Very nice team managing the place, a great package collection service, nice tidy apartments and modern. Its a very good ideea that there is no agency involved in the whole process, so there are no fees to ot, just 1 month deposit and the monthly rent with a basic internet included. Overall it was a great choice, behere is definitely one of the great places in London.

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

There are a few problems in the are with drunk and drugged people, at night it can be a bit harsh. Having the train station close and ASDA is a plus. Overall its acceptable but it could have been better if there was more police around here

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

Probably that the neighbourhood is a bit rough.

Great experience! First time in years!

Verified Resident

Be:Here Hayes is a pleasant place to stay. Very well located (close to the train station and high street). The design of the apartment and the building is well thought and practical. The furniture (very modern design) is sturdy and of very good quality. We can enjoy the roof terrace whenever the weather allows it. At the end of my pregnancy, it has been a lifesaver during the heatwave. I could safely have a walk and enjoying the fresh air. 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!

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

The downside is the being so close to the railways that we can’t really enjoy the balconies. But England being England, hot weather is not that often and we have a nice roof terrace to compensate.

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

I wish I had asked about being able to remove furniture to welcome our baby in the second room

Great Staff which really helps with day to day life.

Verified Resident

This is a great new way to live. It’s very modern – the layout works for us a professionals as well as social activities allowing us to meet our neighbours. The staff are very responsive which is great. The value for what we pay for is good for this area – we chose this area as other areas were very expensive and the space we have is very good value for money. The fact we all have our own ensuite is a massive bonus for us!

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

The area is up and coming. There are a lot of industrial factories around where we live but a lot of new build flats are being constructed. The area is very built up but it also have everything we really need – Shop wise. The transport links are a massive plus for why we moved here.

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

I wish I had known the crime levels or maybe more about the general area.
