Great design and the vibe of the building is amazing. Team are great and manage everything very well, they can’t do enough for us. I really love the residents lounge and always great to grab a cup of coffee and work in the communal space too, fast WiFi is a bonus for sure!

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

Good local shops and great transport links

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

If I knew how easy the team would be to work with, I would have moved here sooner.

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

We have not had any issues. But I can honestly say nothing is too much trouble. Every request is dealt with immediately.

Duet – simply the best ……. 5 stars ⭐️

I love Duet and the community the team has worked hard to develop over the last year- not easy given all that’s been happening. I genuinely feel like one of a big family & can join in or hibernate whatever my mood. Love that we have 24 hour concierge/reception helping to manage security, shopping and post – to mention just a little bit of what they all do every day. The gym is just the right size for me and they also offer some sessions with a trainer – which is great for health and helps build community too. Loving it !

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

Fab location near to all of media city, old Trafford & Manchester centre (first 2 within walking distance and city via tram or bus outside door). Private secure parking available. Generally quiet yet engaging community. Fab bin store managing all recycling locally. Would highly recommend – and have been here over a year ……..

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

I wish I’d known about the energy suppliers and the cost of running the somewhat inefficient radiators. I have had much bigger houses cost less …….

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

Yes all good. Any thing I have reported has been dealt with

Living at Duet

Review Date Oct 2021

Great decor and facilities. The building and property management is well done – there is always someone available to help.

The management team go above and beyond for all residents. They are incredibly friendly and there to help whenever needed – 24hrs a day!

No complaints, lucky to call this home.

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

Location – fantastic! Located on Salford Quays, Duet is a stones throw away from the tram stop leading into the centre, and just a two minute walk into media city. There’s always plenty here!

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

Make use of the gym! Saves additional membership fees elsewhere.

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

Quickly and efficiently! Help is always on hand from the team.

Great place to live and lovely people running the place!

Feels like an extended family tbh.

All facilities are as expected and promised and when something breaks the building staff is swift to accommodate.

Close to everything really. Water, city centre and shopping

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

Nothing really

Always with urgency and with a smile

Best location, full of beautiful people, very clean and great facilities

Review Date Oct 2021

Amazing apartment me and my partner are so happy to move in from Sydney, Australia. perfect location not too busy like the middle of the city and not too quiet like out in the country but can access both areas with ease. Lovely local bars and supermarket just up the road. Parking availability is just across the road so very easy for me and my commute to work. Very clean and no disruptions.

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

Amazing apartment and super happy with all the facilities. Very easy location and very accessible transport.

Fantastic place to live with even better staff!

Review Date Oct 2021

The building is exactly what we had in mind when looking for our new home. It is fresh and modern. The management and staff could not be more helpful and accommodating. I love how convenient it is to access all shops bar and restaurants. Our street is clean and feels very safe. Parking facilities are close by which is great. Our bin service and collection room is always neat and clean. All staff are so helpful.

Luxurious building & clean nothing more to say.

Review Date Oct 2021

Luxurious building & clean with a great design that I have never seen in Manchester. Moreover, it’s good for families & singles as well. Furthermore, pets flexible. GYM available. So, no need to worry to go out or to travel to exercise. To conclude that I oved in with a brand new furniture & painted walls like new home.

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

All are good especially the groceries near by & transport (Tram station ) which is the harbour city station. In addition, safe & secured area.

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

perfect location & the most fabulous scenery from my spot

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

Nice & well organized. Nothing to be worried in all actions.

Fantastic place to live with even better staff!

Review Date Oct 2021

Everything that is needed is here. Management is really good and efficient and attend to needs and queries, such as any defects in the apartment. They also have various events, giveaways and competitions that they are linked to. Design is very good and open.

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

Transport links are really good as tram stops are just outside going to pretty much anywhere. Street is quiet and traffic/noise pollution is rarely heard.

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

I wish I knew there was a coffee machine in the reception at the start as I spent money on Costa instead.

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

Yes, as it is tracked through the app mostly, any problems are addressed promptly.

My Dream Home!

Review Date Oct 2021

The transportation is so good, I didn’t realize. The tram and bus stop is particularly convenience, especially on a rainy day or windy day. We never need to buy a car! It is very convenient! The environment is very clean as it is very close to the canal, this is very different than Hong Kong.

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

As a new comer, the best thing is the security, 24 hour concierge. We used to live in apartments in Hong Kong, and we didn’t have this type of security.

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

I viewed 5 apartments on Rightmove, I scored Duet 5 stars! Because of the management, security, and the convenience. I wish I knew how great the view, facilities, staff and people that live here were!

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

Perfect!! Very helpful and the management are like family. Any personal problems, they go above and beyond to help. They even helped me booking my first doctors appointment, they always listen.

The best view in town

Review Date Oct 2021

The facilities are brand new, I really like the look of the apartments with the colours and furniture (the couch is really comfy), easy to make it feel like a home here. I absolutely LOVE the view, we see right out on the water. The common areas have good vibe with the management always being so friendly and fun, also its free coffee and tea downstairs which is a cool thing and give you the opportunity to bump into people and make new acquaintances.

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

The Quays/Media City is the most beautiful place to live in Manchester if you ask me, I love having the quays so close. The tram/bus is literally right outside the building, Sainsbury’s just 2 min walk, and shops at Media City like 7 mins. All ameneties I need is here and close to the City Centre with 30 mins tram, and worth mentioning Salford Uni offers free buss from this area. Personally I just walk, takes me 20 mins 😉

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

The viewing was very good, we got to see different options and got all the information we needed really. If its something you’re unsure of just give the reception a call or send an email, they are very friendly so dont be shy 🙂

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

Had small issues like the kitchen light not working when moved in, this was fixed right away after we let the Duet team know. Later I´ve had an issue with the flush of my toilet, a plumber was here within 48h.

From the day we viewed the apartment to our move-in day, the staff here have been nothing short of amazing. They’ve helped with any queries we’ve had and gone above and beyond to make sure that we were happy.

The building itself feels like no corners have been cut – especially with the appliances in the apartments as they seem to be really good quality.

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

Living so close to Media City is fantastic! There’s such a great range of shops, restaurants, bars and other things to do. Having a tram stop right outside the front door is a huge bonus – getting you straight into the city centre in around 20 mins! We are privately renting a parking space at a building opposite which is also really easy to get to.

Traffic noise is minimal, and the windows are extremely good at keeping any noise out.

The bin situation is so straight forward and Duet have a really good system for recycling – even providing a bin for clothes that will be taken to charity.

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

I feel like we were very well-informed and were provided with all of the info we needed before we moved in.

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

The building itself has its own app; on there you can report any problems or issues with anything (also good for lots of other things!). We had a very small paint issue in our apartment and it was dealt with really quickly – we just took a picture and reported it with the app!
