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 review the location of this development:

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 review the location of this development:

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…

Good urban regeneration!

Verified Resident

Good modern design with good transport links to airport and London. Good proactive local management. Size of apartments and value about average for London. Build quality above average.

Please review the location of this development:

Good transport links and access to high street and supermarkets. Currently lots of building work going on so a bit noisy and dirty.

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

Potential issue with noise from nearby trains running nearby Hayes and Harlington Station.

Great flats ideal for professionals

Verified Resident

Living here is great for the flat itself, would be better if the balconies were glass though and although the complex is dog friendly not being able to sit with the dog in the roof garden isnメt great. Location is okay but I wouldnメt have moved here if it wasnメt a gated complex with secure parking

Please review the location of this development:

I like the location for ease of getting to London and the motorway network but wouldnメt go out in Hayes shopping

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

The social gatherings are great, a good way to meet people. Will be great to have the new facilities on the roof terrace but just be aware that you canメt take your pooch on there currently. This may be reviewed though

Would Recommend to family and friends

Verified Resident

Itメs a very good development there could be improvements, itメs maintained very well by the building managers and wider team, however it would be better if the facilities were more useful say a gym or child play area rooftop is currently under development however hasnメt shown itメs full potential as of yet

Please review the location of this development:

Too close to train station during summer you canメt leave the balcony door open for air as trains so loud can drown out tv, however still very good building great atmosphere and good floor planning

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

The property canメt be bought only available for renting

Great experience right from the start, would highly recommend

Verified Resident

Overall, living in this development is a real pleasure

Please review the location of this development:

Close to all amenities, Hayes station is a 2 min walk away, lots of restaurants and shops within a 5 min walk and yet when at home, this is really calm

Excellent experience with excellent on-site team.

Verified Resident

The on-site staff are excellent and the location is well connected. Hayes Town lacks several key amenities however it is an area experiencing signifcant invemrninvestment so I expect this to improve over the coming years.

We have had a couple of issues with our flat in that the door has leaked in heavy rain which is something I would not expect for a new build.

The design of the flat is nice but the sofa is a bit small. Otherwise top marks for the flat and development.

Please review the location of this development:

The Crossrail has been delayed which is disappointing. There is no cinema in Hayes or large shopping district. I imagine this will change with the improvements coming with the ongoing investment.

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

There are constant roadworks and construction sounds during the day due to lots of new builds. The subway leading the station can be quite unpleasant but the council have improved their collection regime.
