Review Date Oct 2021

The staff and managers are brilliant! Always around to answer any questions i’ve had and to assist with finding my parcels.
The application was easy too and when it came to moving in the staff was so helpful and explained how everything works and what procedures was in place such as fire etc, they even helped me move my items in from the heavy rain despite getting wet themselves! They are totally professional and you cant ask for more than that

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

parking is abit of a problem, but then everything is so close to the flat it doesn’t really bother me that much and i’ve found parking closeby so i’m happy.
Again its close to shops and bars etc too, great area, nice and quiet in the evenings which is a bonus considering its a city centre location!

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

Maybe just how helpful everyone is here, couldn’t ask for more

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

No issues at all so far, just a small fridge but not an issue really

Spacious, modern and well designed studio apartment with a large balcony. The furniture is high quality and really comfortable. The building is well-kept and management are so friendly and helpful. The gym is always spotless and has high end equipment. Couldn’t ask for more!

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

Perfect location with restaurants, shops and public transport all within walking distance. Very friendly and safe neighbourhood.

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

I’m very new to the area and didn’t know anyone here but within my first couple of days I’ve made friends with people in the building. It’s a very friendly and social place to live.

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

I haven’t had any issues, but management are very approachable and friendly and always are there to help.

Lovely apartments with many facilities!

Review Date Oct 2021

Well designed apartments, with good quality furniture and good sized balcony.
There is a 2 storey gym for residents only that is very well equipped and usually quiet, next door to the apartments.
There is also a Gallery that can be booked out when having friends or family over with us very convenient!

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

Close to the city centre but quiet area. Near a number of local shops and the Arndale centre for shopping! There are bars and restaurants within walking distance and is close to both tram and train links.

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

There is nothing that comes to mind that I wasn’t already told. The induction walkthrough was very helpful and told me everything I needed to know!

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

Any problems that have arisen have been dealt with very quickly, just visit concierge.

Chapel wharf has a gym which is as big as a pure gym. So handy to have next door and included. Management are always smiley and help with everything. Furniture design is very nice and good quality however there are some design features in the kitchen (no dishwasher or big fridge freezer) and I wish there was a communal area we could properly hang out with residents in.

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

Location is fantastic. Super super easy to get in and out of town, can catch the tram from town if needed but everything central is in walkable distance.

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

I wish I’d known how dark my flat was. I usually have to have the lights on. Other than that everything was made aware.

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

Luckily no problems have had to be reported so all good on that front…

Hello Lo,

Thank you for your review.
Really good to get an understanding of your opinion of Chapel Wharf.
You are in a studio apartment so this aspect does not include a dishwasher and as we are heading into the Winter months you will notice your apartment is darker, but cosy at the same time.
Thank you for your kind words in regards to the staff and our fantastic gym!

Have a wonderful day

Really happy living at Chapel Wharf!! :D

I wasn’t actually going to leave a review, but I was reading some of these negative reviews and I personally think people need to calm down, yes there was some security issues with some bikes stolen but this isn’t their fault and yes it is a noisy city centre, but its the city centre! Get over it!
All the staff are really friendly, professional and helpful especially when you’ve been working all day and you can’t find your parcel.
They have regular events, so there’s alway’s a treat to be had which is really nice.
My apartment is a studio and it’s really spacious so I am really happy.
They really do deserve more than 5 stars and much more!

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

I actually really like the area, yes it is noisy at times but you get used to it, it is the city centre afteral!

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

I cannot think of anything, they have helped and showed me where everything is

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

I haven’t had any issues to report at this moment.

Wonderful staff, always friendly and happy to help out. Great facilities: It’s a brand new development, there’s a courtyard, every flat has its own balcony and there’s a well equipped residential gym that has just opened a few months back. Flats are modern and really like the way it’s furnished. Also: there’s a secured parcel room so instead of having to stay home all the time, you can collect your packages whenever suits you best.

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

Love living in this area. Just a short walk and you’re in the middle of the centre where you can get everything you like. Great public transport connections with bus stops and even a train station nearby.

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

Moving in went smooth. Had to order a lot online because of the lockdown, but staff was always happy to help to carry it up to my flat.

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

Very responsive. They always get back to you very quickly.

reception are happy to help & whenever we’ve reported anything it is actioned quick. don’t hear much from neighbours. balcony’s are ideal – we get good natural light throughout the flat. full length mirrors built in (big tick from me). gym is huge and i should probably use it more.

we love our flat here, perfect location and the flat itself is lovely and is very much a place you can make your own. staff are lovely.

There is not much to fault within Chapel Wharf, the staff are incredibly helpful and friendly and the community feel is excellent! The new gym is brilliant and it’s great that it’s included in the rent costs, as well as internet.

My only request would be to have parking included within the rent costs but I understand this isn’t always possible because of limited spaces.

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

The location of chapel wharf is brilliant. With less than a 5 minute walk into the Arndale shopping centre and the bars and restaurants on Deansgate and Spinningfields.

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

There was nothing that I feel like the team missed telling me before moving in.

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

I haven’t needed to raise any problems or issues – which is good!

Absolutely amazing staff that are always happy to help! The gym is incredible along with the lovely function room which looks onto the Lowry hotel. Always entertaining in there and having friends/ family over so having the access to function room makes it much easier and pleasant!

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

So many convenient stores within a few minutes walk. Close to Spinningfields and Centre so it’s great location! And very close to Salford Central:)

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

Kitchen storage space- such as fridge space and drawers are limited.

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

Maintenance and customer care team are so helpful and responsive!

Fantastic city centre apartments

Review Date Oct 2021

Chapel wharf is immaculate and the service we have had it great. Layout of the flats is good with spacious rooms and balcony. Only downfall (niggly) no effective space for tv in bedrooms, no bin shoot and should have full size fridges. Apart from that everything is great and gym is amazing

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

Perfect location – too close to town and spinningfields! Shops nearby to pop and get groceries etc.

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

Small fridges

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

Had no problems or issues so far. Nothing to report

Just recently moved here, but I really like it. The balconies are really big, but you aren’t allowed to put things on them really… you get emails telling you off and it’s abit motherly… but otherwise I really like it.
My apartment has everything I need so I don’t need to buy anything furniture wise and it’s really spacious compared to anywhere else in Manchester.
The staff are good too.

Maybe just what I can and cannot have on the balcony?
