Amazing experience at new makers yard

The design of the rooms are exactly what you want, nice clean professional finish to all rooms. The building and it’s surrounding area is very clean and tidy which is down to its great management team taking care of the buildings. The property management is great, we have had Selina help us every step of the way with the move, she’s been informative, attentive and goes above and beyond the ensure the move in is a smooth one.

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

The location is perfect! Lots of local shops, bars and restaurants you can get to very easily. A very short walk into the city centre and close to train stations.

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

We knew everything we needed to know prior to moving in.

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

Yes, they have been very attentive to any issues that have risen.

I like the modern design of the development and the furniture is all nice! I’ve never used the club house but it’s a nice touch. Love the restaurant/ bar and co-op on site very convenient! The management team are lovely and seem very laid back and chill which I like.

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

I like how it’s got everything you need really – supermarkets, gym, coffee shop, takeaways plus it is only a short walk to town!!

What I dislike is that it’s not really got the best views due to a lot of new apartments getting built

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

Maybe choose a flat with a better view / higher up

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

Honestly not had any issues so far so can’t really comment on this

So far the management of the building has been great, very safe. The staff are lovely and I feel very secure in my apartment. The design is very fresh and modern, yet cosy. I feel it is easy to settle in and feel at home quite quickly. The mattress is so comfy and showers are amazing.

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

I love the area and onsite shop, very useful. The views are wonderful and very peaceful.

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

The mattress and sofa is so comfy!!! The showers and baths are lovely.

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

Better parking facilities, as there is a shortage of space for parking it becomes very difficult for guests who drive to stay

I’ve been here two months, and so far have been very happy with New Maker Yards. The flats are large and well-designed, the management is responsive, and the development has a friendly atmosphere. And it’s great to be able to have a pet–it’s very hard to find rentals that allow cats and dogs.

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

I like having the pub and supermarket within the development, and the shopping plaza nearby, but it would be great if a few more independent business, especially cafes/restaurants, opened in the area.

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

That the ovens are REALLY HOT! you need to watch carefully to avoid burning your food.

What is the best feature of your home:

That tenants are allowed to have pets, without even having to pay an extra deposit for them.

Review Date Sep 2020

Well designed buildings, flats, and green spaces. Build is very solid, especially compared to other large Manchester/Salford developments. Property management is friendly and extremely helpful, and very responsive. Most flat appliances and materials are of very good quality, especially flooring, windows, bathrooms, kitchen counter. Ample storage within the flats. Communal activities programme for development is a nice touch, though has been cancelled due to lockdown until recently.

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

Close to Manchester City Centre and Salford Quays, large grocery (Sainsbury), 2 Co-ops, and lots of public transport nearby. Will be even better when more shops and restaurants open close by (we need a cafe) but this is still a new-ish area. Some good places on Chapel St (Porta), plus 7brothers very close by. Near to Peel Park, which is very improved these days.

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

When the footbridge connecting this area to the city centre behind the Science + Industry Museum opens (next spring?) it will be a much, much shorter walk to the centre.

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

A concierge desk to accept parcels. But that wouldn’t really work in this layout.

New Maker Yards is a lovely, modern development – I love the enclosed but open shared green spaces where people can walk their dogs or sit in the sun. The terrace outside my flat is an amazing addition and makes my flat a 10/10. The quality of the furnishings and decoration in my apartment is great. It didn’t take much to make it feel homey. It also feels bigger than others in this price range/area and things like storage have been thoughtfully included. The relationship managers are all lovely and you’re made to feel really well looked after.

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

New Maker Yards is in a great location with a big supermarket and gym basically on your doorstep. It’s incredibly walkable and you can get to bars, restaurants and coffee shops in under 20 mins on foot.

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

That there are bin shoots in the courtyard. They’re super handy for dropping smaller bin bags through.

What is the best feature of your home:

The terrace outside adds so much extra space, but inside it would be the sofa – super big and comfy and a much better quality than I’ve had in previous apartments – or the dishwasher. First time having one and now couldn’t live without!

The development we are living in is very new and well styled. We have access to a lovely communal space with free tea and coffee. The main selling point to us was that we are allowed pets. In fact the whole development is very pet focused; they have bowls and jars of dog treats in the communal space! There are also plenty of dog waste bins. Our building is managed by We Let Properties and so far we have been treated excellently by all their staff.

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

The area is more of an industrial location than a social one. It is next to the retail park on Regent Road which is handy for shopping, a gym and fast food. It’s a 20 – 30 minute walk into the city centre though and there’s plenty of everything there.

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

Across the road they are working on another development, when we came to view they must have been on a break as it sounded very quiet. As I write this review I am almost deafened by them! They’re only working for another 5 months apparently though.

What is the best feature of your home:

The fact that we are allowed to have pets and that we have a terrace (private outdoor space) to let our dog out in.

Flats are designed well and have a really clean feel to them. Intercom system is a great touch as in previous flats I’d have to head down to let guests in. Any issues we’ve had the maintenance team resolve with 24 hours and they’re incredibly friendly as are the rest of the team that work here

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

The Seven Brothers bar is great, the fact the flats are dog friendly, the site management team and the the building security is good

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

I wish I’d of know about the nearest transport links

What is the best feature of your home:

The views from the balcony and the size of the en suites

I’m so so happy with the development! It’s a stunning property from the outside and even nicer on the inside! It’s the perfect first home with so much space and storage!
The handy men came out as soon as we needed them to help set some things up – they were very polite and friendly!
Selina our contact is the most friendly and welcoming person, she is one of the reasons we went for this home over the others we viewed!

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

Absolutely love my new home! It’s in the perfect location just around the corner from the gym, the shops, restaurants, bars and parks!

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

Nothing really! Only that we didn’t know we needed to recode our Tv to a new city so had to wait for the maintenance men to help us with this!

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

For some reason our property address doesn’t seem to be registered on the national database even though someone has lived here before us?

A very communal feel close to the city center, well thought-out and executed development

Review Date Sep 2020

First of all, the staff is extremely kind and helpful. Every step from viewing, through moving in, to small repairs felt streamlined and personal. They truly make you feel welcome. The building itself is well thought-out and feels spacious, the bicycle storage in the garage is nice. The courtyard is well maintained and is lively with people walking their dogs or just sitting in the sun with a coffee.

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

The area has an open feeling with the restored locks and waterways, and communal space is well maintained. The coop nearby is very convenient while the big retail park for regular shopping is well within walking range. The brewer’s pub is large and I’ve seen locals socialise there frequently which gives a great atmosphere.

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

I think the income requirements are very strict and exclusive for non-UK citizens. I understand the strictness in general but for someone with a short renting history in the UK it is much more difficult to meet the requirements compared to a UK resident.

What is the best feature of your home:

The apartment is very liveable due to well designed features and furniture. The shower is amazing

Design is sleek and minimalistic. Facilities are very well looked after and maintained. The staff are down the road from us and always prompt and ready to offer solutions to any problems that may arise.

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

Co-op is down the road (less than a two minute walk) from us which is very handy if you need some last minute bits. Plus a bit Sainsbury’s only 5 minutes away.

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

The cost of council tax is very high.

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

The building works happening across the road is very noisy / disruptive.
