Best rental experience ever!

Review Date Mar 2019

We were looking to move into this area and stubbled upon this beautiful, modern and fresh building. We enquired and were dealt with by Ha (one of the BOBS). She show us around a few flats and we instantly fell in love. We couldn’t quite believe it was in our price range! We’ve had so many bad experiences of rentals who are there just to squeeze every last bit out of you but the guys at Fizzy are genuine about finding you somewhere to live. They even offered us two weeks free rent so there were no cross-over periods with our previous rental! Would recommend to anyone!

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

Although it resides by major train tracks the location is so peaceful, it doesn’t face onto any main roads. It’s a short (5 minute walk) into Hayes and harlington station and a further 15 minutes into Paddington! The area is up and coming and there’s so much more to come!

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

I wish I could answer this question – but I honestly can’t. Everything has been described to us correctly, there are no hidden fees. Everything is as stated on their website.

Disappointing, disappointing, disappointing – Consider other buildings close by.

The design is stunning and it is what sells the flats. They look and feel new and although I have to say they are not as functional, they do look fun. The building is well kept and there is an app where the community can ask questions and help each other.

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

A lot of criminal activities around the area (which is kind of expected in Hayes) but people broke into the building at least 3 times for the time I was there. The only 2 good things about this area is the amount of short distance supermarkets and the close proximity to the train station.

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

If you give them 5 stars rate here you can be one of the lucky winners of one month free rent. That why so many positive reviews around here. Don’t trust any 5 star reviews, that’s all I can say.

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

They can quickly fix a loose pipe under the sink but anything else would take them 6+ months up to 1 year. So if your window breaks after you move in you are going to be living without a window for another year. I am not joking.

Thank you for taking the time to leave a review and we are sorry to hear that you’ve experienced a few issues. In the future, please make us aware of such issues so we can resolve them -we are unaware of any flats with broken windows. We have also received no reports of such break-ins either. It is not very clear if you are talking about Fizzy Hayes. Nevertheless, we will make sure to pass this feedback onto the team so improvements can be made where necessary. Many thanks, Fizzy Management.

It’s been my home for 3 years!

I am now entering my 3rd year as a tenant here and I quite honestly wouldn’t want to be anywhere else, it’s home! The building is super modern and the flats are finished to a very high standard – friends are very jealous when they come visit! We have communal gardens, roof tops and working spaces – it has been a godsend during the lockdowns. Fizzy Hayes also host summer and winter party’s, with BBQ food, alcohol and nibbles all complimentary – a very nice way of meeting your neighbours. Bill tracking and energy consumption is very easy to track, appliances are so new they have eco options! There are cleaners here most days making sure the communal areas, lobby and corridors are clean! We also have the property managers or ‘BOBs’ who are on hand whenever you need them, if you have any problems within your flat you can log in on an app and it will be seen to straight away! The building is super safe and we have fob access so no unwanted visitors! They are even installing new Amazon lockers here so parcel delivery will be trackable straight to your locker. The rent is very reasonable and is worth every penny – Hayes is becoming such an unbelievably popular area with its ease of getting into the city and proximity from Heathrow, 10 years ago who’d of thought it would be like this?

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

The area is superb. With Hayes and Harlington station just a 5 minute walk away from the development you are connected with the rest of London at ease and with cross rail set to be completed next year it will be even more convenient for you to get into the city – Ealing Broadway is currently just 6 minutes away by TFL rail and Paddington less than 15 minutes! When cross rail is set to be complete it will open up the central section via Central London and you will be able to travel direct to Bond Street, Oxford Street, Canary Wharf and many more stops with just one train. All the major supermarkets are located within just a 10 minute walk and a handy Tesco Express next to the station just in case you run out of wine on a Saturday night and don’t want to talk to Asda! We have lots of handy shops, pharmacies and independent grocery stores in Hayes Town Centre (5 minutes walk). The area is very up and coming and there’s lots of new exciting things happening in Hayes!

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

I knew everything before I moved in – the BOBs are super good at the viewings.

What is the best feature of your home:

Apart from the great and modern appliances I would say my balcony is the best feature, it’s big and in the summer it becomes an extra room! It’s also good to dry the washing on because of the breeze 😄

Modern apartment with great design

Verified Resident
Review Date Nov 2020

The design is superb and the service of propert managers are great and very prompt with any queries we may have so that’s a bonus. Only problem we have is sometimes having trouble locating our delivery parcels but I hear that will soon be sorted with new lockers for tenants

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

I like that there is a high street near by as well as big supermarkets however the disadvantage is that it is a bit of a walk/drive away. There are no corner shops near the building.

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

Can get quite noisy at night due to lots of kids hanging around in the area which sometimes results in a few disruptions.

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

We usually communicate any issues we have via the app or sometimes email which often gets actioned by prop managers on the same day or latest few days later. They will send someone out as soon as they can to resolve our issue.

We LOVE the design of our apartment. It is a blank canvas that you can so easily make your own and we love the layout and the subtle storage space available. There’s a communal garden that’s very peaceful and a lovely outdoor lounge area that has WiFi. Not to mention an additional roof garden with exciting views of the area. The building is managed very well and communal areas cleaned often. Any repairs that you need looking at can be submitted via the Fizzy app which is helpful and efficient. Overall, we fell in love with the modern vibe of Fizzy and the totally reasonable prices.

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

Incredible transport links direct to Paddington and soon to be near a Crossrail location. Very close to a standard high street with all the necessities and close to superstores like Asda and Tesco.

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

It may sound silly, but for some reason no matter which way we enter our details for food deliveries from Uber Eats, the driver never ends up close to our location at all and we need to direct them by phone. I also was happy to find that there is excellent and super secure bicycle storage in the parking garage. I also cannot express enough how spacious and useful our private balcony is.

If there is one thing you would change about your flat or property what would it be:

We would prefer that repairs of things like the lift would be repaired sooner as it seems to stop functioning every couple of weeks but we understand that the speed of this resolution is not solely down to the landlord but has other factors affecting it.

Fizzy living review

Verified Resident

Review Date Oct 2020

The design aspect of Fizzy is original, unique and fresh and has its own specific style. Facilities such as a built in camera for the intercom is extremely useful and provides good security so you know whom your letting in. Building management is outstanding since window cleaners come regularly. Plus. Recently pigeon spikes were installed after a number of pigeons were crowding up windows and balconies. I’ve had no problems with property management as on rare occasions the heating would sometimes not work however the plumbers would arrive in advance. Recently. Sprinklers were also tested in individual flats to ensure the safety of tenants.

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

I like the new addition of the nest climbing area next to the building. And also that the fizzy premise is located near the town close to all the supermarkets located in the town. The main plus side about this area is that the train station is nearby (6 min walk).

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

I wish I knew how to operate the thermostat for the central heating as when I first moved in I had issues when trying to use the central heating and how to control it.

What is the best feature of your home:

The best feature of my home would be the Intercom which has a built in display which displays the camera outside and inside the Main lobby on ground floor. This is a great security feature as you know whom your letting in. and also the MVHR which keeps moisture out when having a shower.

Review Date Oct 2020

I like the design and layout of the whole development including our flat. It’s very modern and stylish which is what I absolutely love. Most importantly I like that there is hangout spots only for residents and lastly the BOBs are always so helpful, not to mention the office is located downstairs which is perfect if we ever need help urgently.

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

I like that there’s a high street near by with all essentials and I like that our road is mainly other properties and no stores because it’s very quiet and peaceful in the evenings which is a must for us as we have a young baby.

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

No near by stores on our street. so could be a bit difficult if we need to buy stuff urgently.

What is the best feature of your home:

Balcony, love that it is spacious, I also enjoy our modern kitchen

Flats at fizzy hayes are designed in a modern way with kitchens being equipped with all the modern and updated appliances as well as washrooms are in such a great condition. In addition to that there is roof top as well as first floor garden with lots of space and great views. Fizzy is also pet friendly. Bobs at fizzy hayes are also very supportive and help you with every matter. During covid 19 pandemic they really supported their tenants.

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

Fizzy hayes is a great place to live with excellent staff. It’s also pet friendly and has a roof top garden with amazing views. Next to fizzy hayes is The Nest which is perfect place for getting coffee as well as has a gym. There are a lot of food points around fizzy hayes as well as play areas for kids.Overall it’s a great place to live.

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

Some real benefits to living here are the BOBs and use of the app. Makes everything so much easier!

Facilities are excellent, particularly the rooftop gardens and entrance foyers. Friends and family always very impressed when they visit.

We also had our annual flat clean last week and they did a fantastic job. Would certainly recommend to anyone looking for easy renting.

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

Rooftop gardens are a great space.
Could have more cap parking options.

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

We didn’t fully utilise the app as soon as we moved in, but is great for communicating with others, announcements and unique deals/discounts in the area.

If there is one thing you would change about your flat or property what would it be:

Would like to see a few more parking options. The garage parking feels quite costly and street parking spots can be difficult to come by.

The development is lovely , it can get confusing in regard to locating the building . It is very apparent the building is taken great care of. We moved to Hayes today and Dave had everything taken care of smoothly.

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

The area is quite secluded and under developed , however I like the quietness and there are plenty of local amenities nearby making things easier.

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

It’s not safe to leave windows open freely with two cats – this should have been better proofed

I feel that the area is pretty good in terms of the design of the buildings and even the way that the onsite staff manages the properties. They are extremely supportive and try to encourage the society. Finally, I feel that overall it is quite good and a healthy place to be in.

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

It is quite a peaceful and relaxing apart from the railways nearby. the area allows us to have good transport as well as retail links as such as Iceland, Asda etc. which is quite convenient for us. However in my opinion I feel that the area can be a bit more bound to leisure activities bring the society more closer together. But apart from that I feel that it is quite a good area and I like the enthusiasm in the trying to increase awareness in such circumstances.

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

I would have liked to know about the construction site noise which started almost every morning. But nevertheless it’s not a great issue.

What is the best feature of your home:

Vast majority of space available to store stuff especially in the kitchen and also the amount of space available in the house.

One of the best developments I’ve lived in, but not without its faults. Apartment is lovely. Faults in the communal areas can take a long time to be fixed. Communal garden area is really cool (unfortunately haven’t been able to use it much in the lockdown). Overall great facility, but one improvement would be that the building managers could a bit more reactive on minor issues.

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

Nice area. Still a lot of building ongoing, but in a year or two you won’t recognise the area. The nest climbing wall is right downstairs and is a great amenity. Hopefully we’ll see some shops and cafes opening soon enough. Stone throw from the station into London which is great

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

I wish I had a clearer view on when more local amenities (shops, cafes) would open up in the local vicinity

If there is one thing you would change about your flat or property what would it be:

Building manager could be better and more reactive at addressing issues in communal areas (flickering lights, outer doors not closing properly)

Very good, been here over a year

Review Date Jul 2020

Lovely flats, great management team and nice outside spaces. The location is excellent for getting in an out of London, only a short drive from the M25.

Also dog friendly which is a huge plus, it was really hard to find somewhere to rent that would allow pets and this is a chief reason why we chose fizzy.

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

Hayes has great links both into central London and to the West Country. Hayes town itself doesn’t have a huge amount of nightlife, but plenty of amenities nearby, and super easy to get to Shepherd’s Bush for Westfields.

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

The parking system for visitors isn’t amazing. You need to book spaces in advance, and the wardens can be quite hot on giving out tickets if you don’t.

Very swift in sorting out repairs or grievances when they’ve arised

We really like living at Fizzy! There is an actual sense of community and the number of pets makes it feel like the secret life of pets movie at times. The BOB’s are great and make an effort to solve any issues straight away.
The flat is well laid out and the balcony is huge which makes it feel like we have an additional room, which was super important in lockdown

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

The area is being gentrified! lots of renovations and new builds going up as well as funky new shops and nicer places. The links in and out of London are amazing and the main reason we chose this area, I work in central London and its a super easy commute

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

The only thing is that it is so well sound proofed and insulated it gets very warm in summer – I haven’t turned on the heating in the entire time I have lived here and I long for central heating or ceiling fans!

First impressions were that there was amazing facilities inside the fizzy hayes area, including parking and bike storage. The rooftop garden is the most stunning feature of the building with amazing views and nice garden furniture. The staff in the build are also ever so friendly and helpful.

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

I found this hard to answer as I had little surprises or complaints when I moved in but if I had to say one thing it would be that it has been hard to control the temperature and keep the apartment cool during hot days.

Structure of the property is very well planned and designed. Good facilities in the apartments. Appliances in the apartments are of really high standard brands. Management is very helpful and co-operative. Any issues if any is immediately taken care of unlike other properties.

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

Overall I am very pleased with the location as it is away from noise pollution and very peaceful. It is very convenient when it comes to transport. Good bus frequency and close to Hayes and harlington station, just 5 mins walk. Asda, Lidl, Tesco, Poundland, Iceland are all under walking distance.

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

I had a proper survey before I could move in so there is nothing I was not aware before I could take this decision. Yes regrets did not move in earlier as I had a bad experience in my previous apartment.

If there is one thing you would change about your flat or property what would it be:

Only if one thing that I could ask for is a little reduction in rent. Understanding fizzy living is value to money but still it could attract more tenants rather than having so many empty flats.

The development itself is fab! It has plenty of communal areas to make the most of, especially in the summer months when the sun is shinning!!
It is accommodating for everyone, our dogs love the open spaces and making lots of friends due to the spatial feel surrounding each flat/townhouse! Overall, the development allows for a fun and exciting lifestyle whilst enjoying the London way of life!!

Fizzy has a great community feel about it! Everyone is so friendly and lovely to talk to. The area is good, you are close to the train station which has good links into central London! Nearby shops are really convenient and you have everything you need near by!

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

Look around a few different flats to make sure it’s right for you, there is plenty of great flats available that are all different shapes and sizes and choose the best one for you!
Get to know people by taking a walk around the communal areas and make sure you get on the fizzy app as it’s a great way to communicate with your neighbours!!

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

The repair and management team have been really responsive and helpful with any issues we may have raised, they have been quick to rectify the issue so ensure we are happy.

Wonderful property management team! They are responsive and kind. The design is modern and aesthetically pleasing. The space is large and the property has many gardens. The downside is no gym and close to the train which is great for convenience but also a bit loud during the warmer months. Overall, I am very happy and glad I made my decision. The people in the community are friendly and nice too.

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

Great neighbors and lovely grounds. Happy with my choice!

Without a doubt the building managers always go above and beyond to help out where ever they can, so nice to feel so safe and secure! Defiantly in good hands and the best landlord I’ve had!!
The design is very well thought out, a good blank canvas meaning I was able to really work with whatever colours I wanted for furniture etc,

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

I think the location is great and will be even better when cross rail is finished! I am always saying how nice the community is. The only thing I don’t like is the gardens on Blythe road full of housing rubbish, makes the street coming into our development look bad

We love our flat. It is bright, spacious and airy. The balconies are an added bonus – the two side balconies allow extra storage space and the main balcony has a fantastic view of Heathrow airport!
We also love the roof garden – space to run around and relax. We are also grateful for the car park – a huge weight off our shoulders.

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

A number of shops and facilities nearby – very helpful to access late night essentials and fast food. Also very near to the train station and not far from the airport. Extremely unique, not many people can say they are near to the airport and to London.

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

Nothing bad to say about the area – I wish I had known about all local gyms before joining one a bit further away.

If there is one thing you would change about your flat or property what would it be:

Understandably with coronavirus – it has made accessing help a little difficult – it would be nice to have our BOBs a bit more easily accessible during this difficult time.

The Fizzy Hayes development has been designed with the tenants in mind. With great communal areas to walk your dog, sit and chat with friends, enjoy a drink in the sun and even admire the beautiful sunsets from the roof terrace. The flats are high quality with top notch appliances and sound proof windows which make the flats very quiet and relaxing. The funky foyers to each building are a nice touch and we use the games room quite a bit! The fizzy staff are wonderful and always so helpful with anything you need. They even organise a few events per year for the residents to meet and mingle. You won’t regret moving to Fizzy Hayes!

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

Fizzy Hayes is located only a 7 minute walk to Hayes and Harlington station which makes for great access to Paddington and central London. Only a 10 minute walk to Asda and many other shops on the high street.

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

The area is up and coming with many new builds and new businesses coming in over the next few years. It’s great to see things popping up but there isn’t much close by yet. The high street is only 5-10 min walk away though!

What is the best feature of your home:

The best feature of our flat is the large outdoor terrace, sound proof windows and high quality appliances.

Working from home

Review Date Mar 2020

I’ve written a much longer more extensive and positive review of this whole development before, but as someone currently required to work from home because of the Covid-19 situation wanted to make the point that as a living/work space it really is very comfortable. Nicely laid out, modern and stylish.

I work in Digital media so working from home is something I do once a week anyway, but now that I’m having to make this a longer term main workplace I’m struck at how practical it is for that purpose combined with being a relaxed environment.

Solid soundproofed flat with good technology links.

Good sized balconies for working outside when the sun shines, but right now working really well as an indoor combined living and working space as well.

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

Good working space when you HAVE to work from home.

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

Again, I’ve done this in detail before. One thing to be aware of though that I didn’t previously mention, there is an anomaly with the post code with the building that can cause issues with getting food deliveries particularly. Often have had to guide takeaways in. Hopefully that can eventually be sorted.

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

Development has an on-site management team who are always available to offer advice, will take in packages and have dealt quickly and efficiently with any of my queries or repair requirements.

The design is very good. The block is secure and the build quality is high.

The issue of parcel delivery/concierge services needs to be clarified. At present it’s a part time service/office hours only

When the commercial units at ground level are occupied it will be a nice area to reside in. It just needs some cafe/shopping etc to enliven it

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

Transport links are very good.
The lack of marquee shops and restaurants is a drawback. The commercial units are empty except for the climbing wall. If SimplyFresh opens it will bring a lot of life to the development and surrounding area.

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

Limits on the community app. It’s a platform for negativity, with people moaning about dog droppings, garbage, missing post, etc. In essence the social elements of the app are overwhelming negative and I’m muted the lot.

If there is one thing you would change about your flat or property what would it be:

The MVHR is very loud even at its lowest setting. The lack of a door from hallway to living area means that sound is an issues

I like the design aspect of the building since it’s unique compared to the others, property management however needs to be improved since there are sometimes problems with central heating that don’t get fixed on time and issues with certain points of the flat.

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

I like the fact that it has a bus stop nearby which makes it more convenient for school.

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

How to operate the central heating since it can be confusing to new tenants.

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

I recently had a problem with the central heating and the plumber came a few days prior to that which makes it good compared to other estates.

Great development with a very helpful management team. The design of flats is really good with a lot of natural light coming in through the big glass doors. The community area should be more reserved for kids or at least have a specific space just for them.

Close to local shops and train station. The bad point is that are a lot of new buildings being built.

Problems are small, climbing centre good

Verified Resident
Verified Resident
Review Date Mar 2020

The building is very nice. Feels safe. Clean, seemingly well built. Friendly management. A few consistent problems through the flats eg the shower head falls down on a daily basis (in most flats). But very small problems. The windows are a bit awkward as they get caught on the blinds even with the blinds all the way up. Love the communal garden areas. The climbing centre is fantastic and 100% the best thing about living here.

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

The area is conveniently close to food stores and the train station and I imagine in the up coming years it will become much nicer with the development.

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

I was told I could leave after a minimum of 6 months should you not like it, and I asked if there was a penalty for leaving after 6 months and was told no. In the same conversation I asked about the month free rent promo and was told I would have it ect. All great. I then discovered reading my contract that the free rent is actually a re embursement and that 2 weeks is given at 6 months and 2 weeks at 12. This is obviously something the managers knew when I asked these questions.
The truth would never have stopped me renting because I love the building but the lack of honesty has definitely set a precedent that I can not trust the management and landlords. Treating your tennants this way will make them less inclined to be honest with you in turn.

What is the best feature of your home:

Living close to the climbing centre is the reason i chose this apartment. Love it.

Since moving here in December, I and my wife are really liking living at Fizzy Hayes. As a young couple, it really ticks all the boxes and it’s been very easy settling in especially with the helpful management here. It offers good value for money for the facilities provided and it’s very close to all the essential things like transport and shops. With the Nest and workspace onsite it offers even more benefits for residents.

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

Nice area, very close to Hayes and Harlington station which is very handy, with very frequent trains to Central London. The local high street and supermarket are no more than 10 minutes away. Hayes seems like an up and coming area with lots of development taking place and a new community being built.

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

As Fizzy Hayes is a pet-friendly environment, it would have been good to know how many pet owners lived on our floor.

If there is one thing you would change about your flat or property what would it be:

Nothing at the moment as everything meets our requirements.

The design of the building is very good. Having all buildings connecting and all residents having access is good. The service provided by the Property management team is efficient and caring. Being close to the town centre allows variety when deciding on take-out.

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

The property is close to town center as well as a 5-10min walk to the station. With an increase of crime in the area, it is starting to make me rethink how safe it is.

Not enough free space for visitors to park. Would be good to have areas for visitors.

Excellent development

Review Date Mar 2020

I like the development itself as it has a communal area so I’m not always inclined to leave the development when fresh air is needed. I like that we have the propert managers on site so we can discuss any concerns we may have but most importantly pick up packages whenever we miss a delivery, so they have been extremely helpful. The fizzy app is also very useful as it’s a way to communicate with neighbours, share ideas and also have a meet up.

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

One disadvantage is not having shops in a closer distance, however there is the Hayes high street where you can find all the essentials required so that’s a bonus.

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

Not enough parking space for when visitors come.

If there is one thing you would change about your flat or property what would it be:

A bigger living room and kitchen space would’ve been better.

Loads of potential, let down by immediate area and lack of community

The flats are great, good size and rarely get cold (even without using the heating )

The outdoor communal spaces are handy in good weather however the development could really benefit from something better ‘internally’, for residents to use

Unfortunately very little to do in Hayes. Multiple empty commercial spaces on site that are still empty, despite rumours of shops and bars etc.

Incredible

Review Date Mar 2020

I absolutely love the design of the flat. It feels like a luxury hotel and has all of the little things thought out like usb plugs in the walls, built in fridge, silent closing cupboards in the kitchen and a seriously spacious balcony. Incredible that it is also let-friendly!

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

The connections to central London via Hayes and Harrington Station is amazing. The cross rail will also eventually be opening here which will make things enormously easier. And I LOVE that new businesses and building are being built and the area is becoming more modern and urban day by day.

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

The referencing process is not as easy as it is made out to be, but the staff are very friendly and we got here in the end. Also, the bills on top of rent add up to more than we expected to pay.

The only thing I would change is that I wish the bedroom was slightly bigger.

The building itself is great, having double security locks before even getting to your flat can really makes you feel safe. The designs of the flats are very modern and sleek, and you’d often forget how close the trains are considering how well they block out sound! Management are usually quick to reply to query’s and having an app for the whole building is really helpful!

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

There are lots of shops within walking distance such as a Tesco extra and a Asda Superstore. The station is also within walking distance and town isn’t that far either. The main issue I would say with the area is due to the amount of construction happening- however you’ll never hear it in your flat so it’s only a slight negative!

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

I wish I knew how hot the flat could get, during summer the heat that was kept in was really extreme. Having a fan and windows open help but even then it was still quite hot!

What is the best feature of your home:

The best feature of my home is how spacious it is but not empty.

Great roomy apartments but with awful management

Verified Resident
Verified Resident
Review Date Mar 2020

Apartments are quite spacious, definitely bigger than most flats at this price. Also bedrooms have no carpets, which is great!

There is a nice communal area in between the blocks and also on some of the rooftops which could offer some nice views if only Hayes wasn’t so ugly…

Fizzy is right next to the train tracks but you won’t hear any trains at all (As long as you keep your windows closed…).

The biggest shame of this place is Fizzy Management itself…. If something breaks in your flat, you’ll wait for quite some time before they send someone to fix it.
They also take a while to respond to any questions you may have.

Also we’ve been told that the flats are cleaned and fixed before you move in, but we found it to be not so clean and also one of the doors wouldn’t close.

They also provide a concierge service and they will take any parcels that are being delivered to you. The problem is that they are open between 9am-6pm or something like that, which totally kills the idea, as most people come home from work at 6 or later and you have no way to get your parcel…

Also Residential Parking is way too expensive…

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

Hayes is not that great of a sight visually.
Apparently crime rate is not high in Hayes but walking to Fizzy at night is a bit stressful.

Hayes High Street is 5 minutes away, and a big ASDA shop is about 15 minutes away.

Hayes and Harlington Train Station is 5 minutes away which is great if you work in Central London. If and when Elizabeth Line actually gets finished, it will be even better!

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

That the management is so poor.
Also that even though the place is ‘pet-friendly’ you still need to get approval from Fizzy to actually have a pet in your flat and that you have to pay for it

If there is one thing you would change about your flat or property what would it be:

The Management. Fizzy is a disappointment that don’t seem to know what they’re doing. They also feel untrustworthy and like they’re trying to squeeze as much money out of you as possible.

Thank you for taking the time to review your home. Sorry to hear that you are unhappy with the management response to maintenance requests. Can we ensure you are putting our request via the Fizzy App? This is the best place you can post your request, and view responses to your requests when works have been completed. Our maintenance team are onsite once a week to fix any issues, as long as access is given by yourself. This is where the delay can come from. Regarding your clean, sorry to hear this, we have an extensive checklist for the cleaners to complete, however we can offer you a complementary clean should you wish?

The Fizzy site team are busy taking over 50 parcels a day Monday – Friday, 9am -5pm for residents, and do drop off smaller ones to post boxes, however due to the volume of these we are introducing parcel lockers shortly in a matter of weeks, so that residents can collect their parcel outside of our office hours, we hope this is pleasing to hear, you asked for it, we listened.

If you would like to take this matter further would you like to email us at hello@fizzyliving.com and we can see what we can do to help improve your experience renting with Fizzy. Please be ensured your feedback will be shared with the wider management team onsite and at Fizzy HQ.

If I could give minus stars I would

Verified Resident

Review Date Feb 2020

If I could give minus stars I would. .

Fizzy Hayes is the most disgusting place to live, feel sorry for myself and family that I am unfortunate to live here. Property is badly managed. Filthy, health and safety issues. Fizzy promises a dog friendly environment, do not believe this, simply not true. You have to pay additional rent for the each dog and they are not allowed access to the gardens or communal areas. Unable to get Sky even though they will promise you can have SkyQ. Always issues with the flats, water, heating, lifts, noise, post being stolen, the list goes on. Management, if they do respond will simply deflect.

This is a child and family friendly environment peridot. Last week alone we were told we cannot put rubbish in the communal bins. Please do your due diligence if you are considering moving to Fizzy. I suggest trying other places as Fizzy will leave you frazzled, tired, marginalised, disappointed and slowly losing the will to live.

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

This community is awful, if you are looking for a nice, well managed, pleasant environment with friendly tenants please steer clear. This area is just a noisy building site.

Transport links are good, but that’s it. There are no other positives, local shops not great selection. There looks like there may be nicer developments, how they are managed I’m not sure.

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

Flat was filthy before I moved in I was promised repairs would be done before IO moved in this did not happen. The repairs are still outstanding almost a year and a half later, despite me contacting them. Issues with Sky TV. Issues if you have a dog/s

What is the best feature of your home:

There is none I cannot lie or give false or misleading information. So I am unable to give a best feature there aren’t any.

Thank you for your comments, it’s unfortunate you feel that this has been your experience of Fizzy Hayes. As you are aware, our team are in lengthy discussions with regards to your review. Our tenants experiences are extremely important to us and we listen to all feedback and treat it very seriously. We’ll be in touch shortly to discuss further.

Thank you.

A nice building, but I’m not sure where my money is going…

Review Date Feb 2020

The development has a lot of focus on the Fizzy brand, which neither helps nor hurts, really. I don’t think of it when I walk in the door. Facilities, in general, are quite satisfactory and I don’t mind using them. The building and property management is sadly the let-down of Fizzy’s Hayes offer. The management office offers to accept parcels, while however, not being open for long enough to reasonably take advantage of (8:30-17:30, occasionally until 18:30). In addition, the construction or preparation of the apartments can seem shoddy at times. Colored handmarks left on white walls, presumably from builders or painters. Doors that don’t fit together and do not close properly, or a non-functioning bathroom lock. Bringing these shortcomings up to the management can be futile as a repair will occasionally be marked as ‘complete’ with no intervention.

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

While not in the middle of Hayes’ Town Centre area, the development is a stone’s throw away from the station and high street, making access to shops and transport a breeze. One could wish for more shops or cafes in the immediate vicinity, however, given the recent nature of the entire Old Vinyl Factory area, this is understandable.

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

It would have been nice to know the opening hours of the Fizzy office to get a better insight into whether or not they can be available to assist with queries during reasonable hours.

What is the best feature of your home:

The apartments are nicely laid out and spacious, giving plenty of space for living.

My wife and I have been residents here for a year now and the experience we’ve had here had been wonderful. From our Fizzy BOBs to some of our fellow tenants that we’ve been fortunate enough to meet. We’re reluctant to ever leave here now!

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

We are lucky to have Hayes and Harlington Station so close by with quick and easy links to Heathrow, Berkshire as well as Central London, although I cannot wait for Crossrail to be up and ready very soon! There are some great restaurants around (my personal favourite being Loaded Burgers in Hayes Town) and the Nest Rock Climbing Centre just underneath is fantastic to have around too!

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

I never knew how awsome Fizzy experience would be!

What is the best feature of your home:

We have lived in Fizzy Hayes for 6 months now and love living here. The building is well kept and well designed and each unit is well designed and perfectly formed. The building has a good range of outdoor spaces which are nice but could do with more internal amenities such as a gym or small retail unit.

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

Fizzy Hayes is in the perfect location in close proximity to Hayes and Harlington station which is perfect for getting into Central London . Lots of shops and amenities in walking distance and easy to get buses into Uxbridge.

That they didn’t change rules that apply to dogs. One of the terraces which was dog friendly has now been closed to dogs as other residence would not pick up after there dogs. Very unfair on other residents.

I feel like this is home, there is a very warm community feel! The flats are very modern with all the latest economical appliances – air filtration system and instillation! I couldn’t ask for better property managers or (bobs) as we call them – they are always on hand when you need an issue resolved or will contact the relevant people in case of maintenance issues!

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

With Hayes and Harlington station just a stones throw away Fizzy is a very convenient place to live with trains to Paddington taking less than 15 minutes! The area is very up and coming with lots of development work going on so it’s exciting to see how it’ll change over the years!

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

It would’ve been nice to know more about what’s happening within the area – development wise but I’m assuming with the constant pushback of Crossrail opening it’s hard for businesses and developments to plan ahead!

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

Always resolved issues I have had on the same day!

Living in a fizzy flat has been great, having moved from a smaller flat, fizzy has everything we need and more! Though we did have issues within the flat due to the building settling, the BOBs and building maintenance have been great and got things sorted quick! The BOBs have been super helpful and easy to talk to and all the added extras are a bonus like the communal gardens, prize draws and the fact that the property managers and take in your parcels for the days you know you won’t be in. Overall it’s been a joy to be part of the fizzy experience!

If there was one thing you could change about your flat or property what would it be?

I’d probably add windows in instead of door as sometimes you just just want a light breeze without the whole balcony door open because when you do open it the small amount it does really feel any different and when it’s open completely it too much

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

The location of Fizzy Hayes is in a gem of a spot, so close to the train station and with it being just 5 minutes away from Hayes town you have plenty of shops and lunch spots to choose from.

The complex itself has great social spaces and is perfect for pets. All of the flats come furnished to such a high standard with spacious balconies. I’ve had no issues at all when it comes to property management, if ever there is an issue with my flat, they are prompt and endeavour to solve my issue within days. They also put on social events for all of the tenants which gives the complex more of a homely/happy vibe.

Fizzy Hayes is a 5 minute walk to Hayes and Harlington Station which is great for getting into central London within 20 minutes! There’s a high street just around the corner with all the amenities you could need.

The whole area is under renovation (lookup for Old vinyl factory) so its brand new and modern looking. Appliances overall are modern with good brands like Bosch or similar. Heating and MVHR are controlled digitally so again, very convenient and sustainable. Although my windows faces the railway, no sound is heard from within because of the triple glass…had many friends over and the thing just works as it should…oh, one more thing: it is pet friendly so our little ones are happier than ever!!

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

Is indeed close to hayes and harlington station which is super easy to get to central london or even heathrow. The high street is a short distance with 4 supermarkets available, post office, restaurants and everything one may need. Very convenient.

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

This is a pet friendly place which is on the essence of what makes this place amazing. Be open and have fun with other people’s pets (no formalities and no need to ask the owner before petting dogs)

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

Most of them are fixed as they appear or in 2 to 3 days. More complex problems may require longer period of course but really good timing if compared to regular landlords.

Review Date Dec 2019

My boyfriend and I have been living here just over a month now, and so far so good!

There are some things that are out of anyone’s control as always with anything, like the developing views around, and taxi drivers getting lost… But a huge compensation for that is the very personable, accommodating and overall excellent service you get from the BOBs. They really do their best to find solutions to any issues, and are very responsive.

The appartment itself is very apt for a couple. It’s amazingly soundproofed, it’s spacious (we even have a piano inside) and modern. We took our flat furnished and the quality of the furniture is excellent.

Moving in was very easy and guidance was provided by the BOBs whenever there was a need. They provide a nice folder with all of the manuals to appliances, your tenancy agreement, information about things in the flat, etc. when you move in, as well as a welcome surprise(!).

There are regular social events where you can spend time with neighbours (and their pets if they come along too), and an app where you can discuss any issues or things that make you happy with neighbours and with bobs.

I think we are definitely getting our value for money here, and although it makes our journeys to work longer, we absolutely love our little ‘pod’ and are very happy to be here.

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

Good transport links with the station around a 7 minute walk away (access to Ldn Paddington ~17 minutes, Heathrow ~7 minutes) and regular buses to Uxbridge and Ealing Broadway (trains can take you here quite quickly, too)

The town is quite small, but has what you need, like Wilkinson and Lidl – if you’re looking for something more lively (whilst we wait for Hayes to develop a bit more), Ealing Broadway is nice.

We noticed a lack of Italian restaurants around the area, otherwise you’re well equipped with Indian Restaurants and the good old chicken shop.

There isn’t a cinema either, but apparently there’ll be one very close to Fizzy in the near future… Meanwhile I think there’s an Odéon in Uxbridge.

There’s a leisure centre nearby and a climbing centre just downstairs, we don’t get discounts here sadly but it’s very nice to have them around 🙂

If there is one thing you would change about your flat or property what would it be:

More soundproofing at the front door (but this is really knit picking now – very hard to find something to say here, sorry!)

Myself and my flatmate moved to Fizzy Hayes after the owner of the house we rented in Harrow decided to sell and invoked the break clause in our contract, landing us unexpectedly with 2 months to move on what should have been a further 6 months on our contract.

We had been at this property a number of years and the last time we’d looked for somewhere to live in London it had been a bit like the Hunger Games chasing rental properties, so initially were quite daunted.

However we quickly discovered that there are now an ever growing number of build to rent developments that offer flexible renting arrangements with added extras, designed for people in our situation and realised that property searching in our case had become a lot more advantageous to the renter than it once was.

I’ve done everything from renting a dingy room over a pub in Stratford, to rooms in house shares with communal kitchens where I had no say on who I lived with, and though my last place had been a share of a proper suburban home, (not just a room), with people I knew, that was well furnished, comfortable, in a nice area, we still had to juggle the property owner and letting agent to keep them both happy, live very much in the decorative style and taste of the property owner, tolerate slow repairs, often coordinate those repairs ourselves, and could not plan ahead because we were never certain if our yearly contract would renew or the break clause would be invoked.

What we liked about developments like Fizzy was having the option of a three year contract, (which we took), not having to deal with a letting agent, fast repairs, living accommodation of a good high spec standard in a location that worked well for us, and a rental experience that was professional, felt more like we had some control and were valued as customers.

My experience of private landlords is that they often think they are doing you a favour by letting you live in their properties when in fact you are paying them for a service.

There is no ambiguity with Fizzy, this is their business, it’s a professional arrangement and it’s in everyone’s interest for that to work to everyone’s satisfaction.

At the same time as we looked at Fizzy, we also looked at Tipi in Wembley, which is a similar company and development, which we liked, we seriously considered, but opted for Fizzy for a number of reasons.

Firstly the apartment was bigger yet more affordable. Not just the main living/kitchen area, (which is a very good size), but the bedrooms as well.

If you’re sharing a flat with someone who isn’t your partner the size of the bedrooms is more important than if you’re a couple, because aside from your cohabiting space you both want a good bit of private space as well.

My flatmate has two sons and when they come to visit I want to give them as much space without me in the way as possible. The bedroom I had in our old place was tiny, so that always was problematic. Now my room is a liveable proper space that I don’t mind spending time in when I want, or need, to.

Equally my flatmate paid more of the rent in our last place so he could make use of the back room as his own little den for his gym equipment, playstation etc. All that needed to be incorporated into his new bedroom, which he has been able to do comfortably.

What we also liked about the bedrooms is that there is an equal trade-off. My flatmates bedroom is slightly larger with a spacious en suite bathroom, my room is still a good sized double bedroom, (both rooms have fitted wardrobes), but also has a balcony, and the shared shower room is directly across the corridor from my room, so is as ‘almost en-suite’ as it could be.

A particular feature I like in the bedrooms is something I first thought was nonsensical in that one of the two sets of patio doors in both rooms open onto a lattice brickwork making them initially seem pointless. However in the heat of summer they give really effective ventilation combined with privacy without the need for air conditioning, and, when its too damp to dry outside, work well for airing clothes in your room.

(The flat does come with a small utility room that includes a washer dryer but I prefer to dry my clothes naturally whenever I can).

There are two balconies, (mine and a shared one off the living area), that are a lot bigger than what we saw at Tipi, (or any of the developments I’ve noticed around Hayes), and in the summer effectively become added rooms to the property. We have space on the shared balcony to have a large table and chairs, (which in the summer becomes our dining room most nights), and on mine, (the same size), a sofa and planters, (as well as, when the weather is right, a drying area for clothes).

The development itself has a lot of good shared space with other residents including gardens that are closed access, safe and secure for families who want somewhere for the kids to be outdoors, and includes a play area, and a 10th floor roof terrace, that was a big selling point for us, with views towards the City, Heathrow, Harrow and Wembley, and, (certainly currently), is the highest residents roof space in the area.

It gets great Sunsets!

There is also a residents ‘party room’ and the lobby’s to each of the four blocks are designed as additional lounge areas.

In truth, when it came to additional indoor space for residents Tipi did more than Fizzy Hayes on this, (including kitchens and dining areas for large numbers of guests, a viewing room, and lounges), but we quickly determined that though those seemed impressive, we likely wouldn’t use them much over our own personal space, and for what we’d pay in rent at Tipi to have them available we’d probably opt to spend that money doing things in London with friends rather than hang around and socialise with neighbours in our building.

That said Fizzy actively encourages socialising amongst its residents. It runs events and activities throughout the year and provides a residents app to promote communication, keep everyone informed, create clubs, and generally instil a sense of community.

It’s a good idea, definitely has its uses, often works, but like any form of social media can backfire and there have been occasions when the app has gone into meltdown between residents, leading to the occasional very public spat, (which can be either annoying or entertaining), meaning there have been situations when some comments on the app rather than encouraging me to meet some of my neighbours has had me thinking … “yeah maybe I’ll avoid you”, (though that’s actually quite a useful heads up in itself)?

Obviously that’s caused by individual residents failings rather than the fault of Fizzy who have always been quick to intervene and try and rectify situations when these occasional, (and they are occasional), things happen.

In this, we have the Bob’s, who are the onsite building management team and very much your go to people for advise on the building, local facilities, getting parcels delivered, (they will take parcels in for you and notify you on the app), sorting problems, reporting faults, answering queries, arranging events and organising repairs.

I suspect as residents we can be an entitled and pampered bunch so it’s to their credit that they do this generally with a smile, a lot of patience, and willingness to answer queries and sort difficulties.

As someone who use to wait days before my landlord responded to me, the convenience of having people on site to advise is much appreciated.

The other thing we favoured about Fizzy over Tipi was location.

We both work in West London so both developments are good for our jobs and though superficially the novelty of having a stadium view and access to the bars and entertainment facilities in Wembley Park seemed like something you’d want, the more we thought about it, Hayes as an area actually has things you really need for day to day living.

Good selection of shops you will regularly use, banks, takeaways, health facilities etc. Most of which, (currently at least), are very affordable.

The bars, restaurants, entertainment facilities you can travel to, and again, with Crossrail eventually being available, Hayes is well placed to get you there, (also some of those things are currently being built in Hayes too).

Now we’ve lived there for a while it’s worth noting that the flats insulation and sound proofing are excellent.

We live near an airport and next to a railway!

Planes are a distant rumble but in our case trains go right passed us three floors below!

However we hear nothing when the triple glazed windows and doors are closed.

On that point, proximity to the railway might be a problem for some re noise when the doors and windows are open, (personally I quite like the coming and going), but that’s really down to individual perception.

Our flat is right on the railway, but there are blocks further back.

We ourselves are quite noisy, so was concerned how that might reflect with flats above and below us, (though thankfully in our particular layout not actually directly next to us), and I’ve made a point of tracking down neighbours in relevant flats to find out if they can hear us and now tend to think the flats are sufficiently well built not for us to be annoying anyone, apart from one Bank Holiday Weekend when my flatmate had his subwoofer very loud and his window open!

(We were NOT popular on the App that day)!

Insulation too I think is good. We’re just coming into winter so not certain how it will be when the temperature drops below zero but the combination of sunlight that shines into the flat through the large amount of floor to ceiling windows, (we’re lucky in that our flat has a double aspect), combined with the concrete walls and triple glazing has me thinking it will hold the heat in and we are yet to use our radiators.

Other things!

Think it’s important to say that though these places are often promoted as for ‘young professionals’ they work just fine for other demographics too.

I have friends who have young families and if they were in the rental market I’d be actively encouraging them to move in, as I think its a safe and welcoming place to raise young children.

Me and my flatmate are both the wrong side of 40, (me quite a bit), and it turns out amongst neighbours we’re not unique in that.

Work wise I work in digital media, my flatmate works for a haulage firm and is a part time Uber driver, and I’ve encountered mechanics, engineer, Doctors, teachers, and quite a lot of airline cabin staff, so a diverse mix of occupations.

We pay £60 each for secure underground parking of our two cars, not everyone is happy about how dusty the car park gets, (it has this last weekend been cleaned), it doesn’t bother me or my flatmate, who, in part, relies on his car for his business and seems to cope fine without it being an issue, (so again, up to individual perception).

Worth being aware if you don’t want to pay for underground parking, parking in Hayes is very difficult, the traffic wardens are ruthless and to the best of my knowledge Fizzy Hayes residents aren’t eligible for the Hillingdon residents parking scheme.

One of the selling points of Fizzy that they go heavy on is that they are pet friendly!

THEY DEFINITELY ARE!

Neither me or my Flatmate have lifestyles that are suitable for having pets so it’s a benefit we don’t have a need for, but having dogs as a regular thing around the development isn’t something that’s causing me a problem and I often think it probably adds to the community feel of the place.

What is good is that you can hang things on your walls, (on the understanding you fill the holes in when you leave), and the sense that we can actually make this flat our own and a home rather than it being someone else’s property we’re looking after!

This has been good for both of us and encouraged us not to go with the furnished option on the flat, (which you can do for an extra £100 a month), but instead furnish it between us very much with the security of knowing we have a long term lease and a general agreement that, (baring unforeseen circumstances), we’re happy enough with Fizzy not to be considering moving any time soon.

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

Hayes is an area undergoing redevelopment and will likely see plenty of changes over the next few years.

At the moment, (Nov 2019), there are a lot of building projects underway for new amenities, entertainment venues, (including a Cinema next to Fizzy), and other similar property developments.

It’s urban, culturally diverse, perhaps less well off compared with other parts of the City, but the upside to that is that its very affordable at the moment for general amenities and shopping with a busy high street that incorporates within walking distance of Fizzy, an Asda, Tesco, Lidl, Iceland, Post Office, Banks, Sports Centre with swimming pool, lots of smaller privately owned retail outlets, eateries, takeaways, Doctors, a youth centre, and a couple of basic, rough and ready, pubs.

Fizzy is 5 minutes walk from Hayes and Harlington station which has a regular train service to Ealing Broadway and Paddington, or Heathrow and Reading, and is on the Elizabeth/Crossrail line which, when it opens, will provide direct access to Bond Street, Liverpool Street and Canary Wharf.

Heathrow airport is a 10 minute drive away with regular bus and train services available to it.

The Canal allows distant cycling access to Paddington, and Camden, there is a park/recreational ground nearby, a nicely landscaped modern business centre, the Global Academy school, Hillingdon Hospital and a new climbing centre/gym that is actually attached to Fizzy.

Some residents I’ve spoken to think it’s a bit rough. To me I’ve lived in rougher places and think it’s just a little edgy and reckon Hayes as an area is aiming to have a bit of a Dalston vibe to how the community develops with a mix of established community and ‘young professional’ migration.

With the coming of Crossrail, Hayes is a frontier town, developing accommodation and amenities to encourage new settlers and currently is in the early years of that!

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

Sky is an ongoing issue in Fizzy Hayes.

There was a mistake made by the developers meaning the building wasn’t equipped for Sky Q. It’s not an easy thing to fix but it’s my understanding it is being looked into, and I’d imagine eventually will have to be rectified before Sky Q becomes the only option for subscribers.

We checked before we moved in that we could get Sky and were told we could, but I don’t think the Sky Q situation was really explained to us in that we would have to downgrade back to HD.

In truth, had we known in advance that might have been a sticking point, especially with my flatmate.

In retrospect if we’d let that one thing stop us from going with Fizzy that would have been our mistake as since moving in the benefits are more significant than this one tiny foible and even my flatmate, (who initially was a bit unimpressed with the Sky situation), has changed his attitude and now sees this a very minor niggle over everything else that we both like so much.

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

Very well. We had some minor snagging niggles with the flat at the start which given it was totally new and we were the first residents was fully understandable and expected and these were dealt with quickly and efficiently.

We’ve always found the Bob’s helpful and accommodating and have no complaints.

Review Date Nov 2019

Living in Fizzy is amazing, it’s the nicest flat I’ve ever lived in, it is brand new and all the appliances are incredible quality. It’s so great having building managers on site, if there are any issues at all the handyman comes over and fixes them so quickly. It is a little expensive, but it’s absolutely worth it due to the service and quality of the place. Plus there such lovely outdoor communal spaces, as well as all flats having a balcony and being pet friendly!

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

Hayes is very easy to get to from central london. It is quite small but there is a small highstreet with everything you need, as well as large supermarkets. There a few restaurants and more things are opening all the time, and i think in six months it will be a buzzing hive of activity as soon as the Elizabeth line is opened.

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

The one thing I’ll say is it’s really had to get parcels delivered if you work 9-5 monday to friday. The building managers collect the post for you which is lovely, but then the times you can collect are when I’m at work, so i can’t really get anything delivered.

If there is one thing you would change about your flat or property what would it be:

I would just change the parcel system, and have people able to collect parcels on a saturday too.

Review Date Nov 2019

Fizzy construction has been outstanding. The facilities provided with the apartments are really high standard. They provide you with fridge, Owen, washing machine, gas unit, dish water all brand new and of Bosch a very good brand. They have game area and they maintain it to the mark. Unlike other builders once you rent they are least bothered about other facilities. Security wise they have 2 entrance doors where u need to use the fob so it’s quite secured. The other day I reported that the entrance door was not working and was open. It was immediately taken care of and fixed without any further delays for the safety of residents. That’s what best about fizzy and the people who work for fizzy. Happy to have been renting with fizzy and I do recommend my friends who are looking for places to try fizzy.

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

It’s been nice and away from noise pollution. Hayes and harlington station is just 5 mins walk And close to even bus stops. Only thing it’s a bit scary for girls to walk from the station at late nights or early mornings depends what shift they are working. As it’s quite lonely at late nights and you at times comes across some druggist or drunk people which is actually everywhere these days. We have Asda, Lidl, Iceland, Poundland,. Tesco all at walkable distance which is quite good.

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

Have just moved in just over 2 months everything seems to be good but yes if the rent was a bit less it would really catch the market as whoever I have recommended has backed out because of the rent.

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

As mentioned above the other day I reported the entrance door was not working and was open. It was immediately taken care of and fixed without any further delays for the safety of residents. That’s what best about fizzy and the people who work for fizzy.
