Nice community, some dirty areas.

Verified Resident

The community and people are nice. But the kids broke some of the lamps outside. The flats could be redecorated. There is food on the floor. It is quiet on my floor which is nice. The service charges are expensive.

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

I don’t like the people that litter the bundling. They don’t clean that often.
The inside of the house and the people are nice.

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

There is nowhere to park and the resident parking is only for certain people.

The management could be better

Verified Resident

Facilities are not good for the kids. The service is not great either . Not enough bins around here . 2 small bins for the whole area only. My flat is dark because of the exterior wall. A lot of mould and no ventilation . Tiny little vents . I feel safe living here. It is pet friendly . What I dislike are the wooden fences because the kids can hurt themselves.

Good place to live at

Verified Resident

New building and the facilities are of good quality. The security is good because they always do the walk around and you can call them 24h if you have any issues. It is safe overall. Maintenance is good and there are no delays in fixing things.

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

The area is central and close to West Croydon Station

Fair price and nice place to live

Verified Resident

Security of the building is great with the cctv. I feel very safe living here. The hot water is sometimes broken. This was my first complaint when I moved in; there was no hot water. Only the shower, other faucets are good. The community is good and people are good. I like the common space for having a smoke.

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

The lifts are broken so there are too many people around. I like the security sitting around so help.

Landlords mother is a pain but he has spoken to her. I understand that she may have concerns but she is bad at communicating with me.

I am satisfied

Verified Resident

Everything is okay. It is well organized. The lift someimes breaks down. There is always a problem with the lift. It is clean and I am happy with the facilities. It is child friendly and the neighbours are all very nice. No crimes like robbery have happened. Kids from different places come and play at our playground which I like a lot!

Good area. The shops are close. The train station too.

Good place to live

Verified Resident

Seevice charge ia getting up. The common garden is not very nice, not a lot of things to do, not safe at all. It is not clean. They should be renovating for the money we are paying. 3 months without fixing the front door lock. Storage for the bicycles is too small and they have been using it for other purposes.

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

Convenient to the hospital, school for the children. West Croydon is the nearest station . You have the trams as well.

Satisfied

Verified Resident

It has got a good sized communal area downside. There is no security insider and not a proper gate to stop at. The children mess it up . It must be of a limited access . No cleaning . The playgrounds are good, nice, quiet, lights come up at night. Nice community as well . Notorious people . They haven’t change the carpets from the beginning. Security is fine .

Area is central all the shopping is close, easy to reach the West Croydon station
