Well-designed flats, friendly community

Verified Resident
Verified Resident
Review Date Jun 2022

The studio flat I am in is well-designed and maximises the space available. The balcony is a real bonus. I’d rather have a towel rack than another big mirror in the bathroom, and the shower door doesn’t extend far enough to stop water leaking out of the shower from the drain. But these are relatively minor problems. The staff are incredibly friendly and often go out of their way to help, for example by helping me to carry large boxes back to my flat. I’m really happy here and would definitely recommend it.

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

Really centrally located, only takes 5 mins to walk to the Arndale and about 10-15 mins to walk to Victoria station. My flat is on the 3rd floor and faces Chapel St. There is traffic noise but its not enough to disturb you with the windows closed.

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

Nothing has particularly surprised me since moving in, I thought they did a great job answering questions and showing you around on viewings.

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

Yes. I raised a few maintenance requests through the online system which did not generate a response but when a spoke to a staff member about this they sorted it out for me.

Beth was really welcoming at the viewing and helpful answering any questions I had from viewing through to move in. Design of the development is relaxed and homely, great gym, co working space and gallery to rent out for private events. All staff really helpful and any problems are dealt with quickly. Anthony really helpful with the move in process.

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

Great location a few minutes walk from restaurants, shops and train station. Quite development, friendly tenants and staff.

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

Anything i was unsure of had been answered at the viewing

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

Easy way to raise issues through an online portal, maintenance respond quickly and resolve any issues at pace.

Nice and modern

Review Date Sep 2022

The team on the front desk in Chapman house deserve a special mention. Always with a smile on their faces no matter the house and always happy to speak or answer questions! The gym is very nice but could do with some more equipment rather than features such as sofas. Cables and another bar would be ideal.

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

Location is practically perfect, short work to town but far enough to be away from the noise and the traffic.

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

The whole team on the front desk in Chapman house deserve a special mention. Always with a smile on their faces no matter the house and always happy to speak or answer questions!

Not management but the whole team on the front desk in Chapman house deserve a special mention. Always with a smile on their faces no matter the house and always happy to speak or answer questions!

Amazing!

Review Date Sep 2022

Flat and building layout is superb. Building and property management are amazing, only improvement I have is the kitchen could be a bit bigger and the fridge space is extremely limited.

Bar that, everything else is 10/10

Also, Anthony and Clemence were really helpful when facilitating moving in!

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

Amazing location – super close to town centre. Several shops available and local Tesco / sainsburys nearby which is great

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

Make sure to ask for an additional fridge / freezer prior to moving

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

Super quick – Anthony was amazing at helping install an additional freezer!

Perfect choice for new movers

Verified Resident
Verified Resident
Review Date Sep 2022

The property has good facilities provided, such as a modern well designed gym, a common living space ad kitchen, and a working space.
The flat itself is perfect for two people. Although the kitchen is a bit small and there’s little fridge space. They did provide a second small bridge for free when we asked for one. The furniture is new and some pieces still have their labels on.
Concierge is always available and people there are super friendly. Clement in particular was very helpful and was a great guide in our first day here.
Would’ve been perfect if the working space was more isolated from the fun areas and the entrance, as it gets too loud sometimes.

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

Just a few minutes walk from the city centre, meaning you get to enjoy a quieter stay while still being well connected.

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

Everything was clearly communicated in the viewing visit, so there’s no surprises.

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

We asked for a second fridge and it was provided for free.

Safe, well located and classy living

Review Date Sep 2022

Design is lovely, facilities are fantastic. The gym in particular was impressive spanning over 2 floors, still doesn’t compare to the mainstream gyms but for an apartment complex it is pretty good. There is free coffee throughout the day in the lounge area.
I live in a one bedroom apartment and I would prefer if I had a larger fridge/freezer though as this does limit my weekly stock when shopping particularly in the freezer compartment which is basically one draw.
But overall, I feel safe and comfortable here and the staff are very friendly and do give a personal touch which I value highly.

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

Area is nice and quiet but also very close to the arndale shopping centre and deansgate. The northern quarter is about 20 mins walk from the building which is decent.

Also free buffet breakfast once a month which is really cool.

Secure gated parking

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

Generally everything I expected, nothing surprising. I found out after i moved in that the gym and the lounge area closes at midnight but not a major issue for me.

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

Building management is very good, one example where i had an issue with the washing machine, the management team were really considerate and made arrangements for me to use another washing machine until mine got resolved (and it got resolved within 2 days).
Staff are friendly and chatty and the socials have been pretty good. Also once the fob to the parking played up and this was replaced instantly.

There is no designated space for a large freestanding bin and no storage cupboards for things such as a hoover or mop.
Yet to try the gym but it looks good.

Chapel wharf is an amazing development in the heart of Manchester City centre. The facilities are superb and staff has been immensely helpful. Clement gave a very warm welcome and explained everything in great detail . Overall , the experience so far has been incredible.

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

Great place to live as it is right next to the City centre , hence , with easy transport links and shops availability. Parking is an issue.

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

Nothing to point out really . The viewing was in great detail and all questions were answered.

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

So far there hasn’t been an issue but we are confident with the management.
