I have lived in the property for over 2 years now and have never had issues with the management, can be slow with queries or organising any problems but overall are happy to help. I have had a couple of issues through my time here e.g radiator broke in winter and it took a little while for anyone to come and fix it/replace it with their only being 1 other heater my flat was very cold. Also drafts have been bad coming through the balcony windows which omnia are aware of.

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

Working in the city centre this property is perfect for travelling to work. There are also amazing restaurants and bars locally, as well as being near big food shops and not far from the A1, location is ideal. The building works going on does reduce the score as it is an inconvenience with the noise and workers.

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

How cold the flat is, it’s very expensive in terms of bills as the flat does not retain any heat. Wish I’d known about the builders as I am next door to the works and can hear them at all times of the day.

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

Always polite and tries to be as helpful as possible but often can wait long periods of time to get any resolution on issues raised.

Good value and size

Verified Resident
Verified Resident
Review Date Oct 2020

The building is kept clean and the flats have good sized rooms, the two bedroom flats have similar sized rooms and two bathrooms which is perfect for sharing. It is good value for the area and issues are responded to quickly. The only inconveniences are that the electricity meters are not accessible to tenants and when we moved in the flat had not been properly cleaned e.g. behind/underneath furniture. Overall though a really nice property, there is minimal noise from other flats and its in a very good location

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

Really close to the metro for getting to the city centre or the coast, also Gosforth high street is in easy walking distance and has lots of independent shops, restaurants and cafes as well as bigger brands such as sainsburys costa whsmith and plenty of bank branches. There are some small park areas around and gyms and a leisure centre as well. The only thing about the area to dislike would be parking availability for houses off the High street

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

The flats can get quite warm in the summer with the sun on them so a fan is probably a wise purchase

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

Allowing tenants to put things up on the walls and properly cleaning flats before new tenants move in

Review Date Oct 2020

We lived here for 2 years and loved it! It was perfect, very modern and bright flats. Excellent location to access transport into the city centre and also right beside the A1.
Bathroom and kitchen facilities were great and very modern. Nice interior as well, loved the colour scheme as made it easy to decorate and make cosy!
We only moved out due to buying a house, would of been happy staying here for longer of this wasn’t the case.

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

Very good location, easy access to metro and buses. Lots of nice pubs within walkable distance! Right beside supermarkets. Very chilled letting agency.

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

How loud the building works we’re when they started in jan 2020

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

Had issues with some problems when we moved in and were never fixed the whole time we were there. And there were a few issues with the lift being out of order for a longer period of time.

Stylish Apartments in an Ideal Location

Verified Resident
Verified Resident
Review Date Sep 2020

Northumbria House is stylishly designed with top of the range Neff appliances and high quality work surfaces, sinks and taps. The bathrooms are very impressive with gorgeous tiling and very nice fittings. Generally, the flats are quite roomy and have ample space in the kitchen/living area. The main bedrooms are large and have an en-suite. The other bedroom is slightly smaller but has adequate storage space. The building is very well maintained and cleaned and any problems with the property are promptly dealt with by onsite staff.

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

Northumbria House is conveniently located within walking distance of local supermarkets, Post Offices, Petrol Stations, gyms and the upmarket Gosforth High Street. Situated next to Regent Centre Metro Station and Bus Station, it is ideally placed for local commuters wanting to travel all across the region including Northumberland. A number of parks are also in the area along with local Golf courses and other outdoor sports facilities.

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

Other buildings in the area are also being renovated into flats and there can be building noise early in the mornings.

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

As Northumbria House is situated next to Regent Centre Metro you can hear the trains going past. You get used to this quite quickly and are not majorly frequent.

Not many facilities, the lift has been broken a couple times for a few weeks before. The main door lock has been left broken a few times.

Very convenient area. Bus station, metro station, shops and high street just minutes away.

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

The noise pollution when staying within a block of apartment

A Glimpse to NE3

Verified Resident
Verified Resident
Review Date Sep 2020

I think the property is nice to live in. Modern designs. But I felt that improvement could be made by employing someone in Newcastle to deal with the property here as the head office is currently in Sheffield.

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

It’s very convenient to live here. There is a metro a stone’s throw away from where we lived. You have Mark and Spencer and Asda just around the corner. Local pubs are around there which made it extremely easy to socialize with friends.

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

Nothing to be honest. The minute I viewed the flat I thought the flat looked amazing and I wanted to move in straightaway.

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

We normally contact one another through emails! They have been good at replying email on time but sometimes things are better to be dealt with on a face to face basis which is not available currently.

Overall the Property is really well managed and designed, I had No problems with any payments or documents everything went smooth.
This area is really quiet and with the bus Station around the corner you can get to city Centre in close to 15 minutes.

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

Really close to metro and bus stop.
Metro line outside the window.

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

In terms of equipment like kettle, iron od bedding it’s better to have it when you move in. Ikea is 50 minutes away by the bus.

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

The only think that I can think of is the metro line outside the window.

My new home at Northumbria House

Verified Resident
Verified Resident
Review Date Sep 2020

Design is great, excellent views from higher floors.
There is a storage / laundry room which is excellent
Having gas in the building will be highly desirable as it will reduce electricity costs
Excellent commute facilities as the building is couple of minutes walk from the metro station.

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

Fantastic apartment with excellent views and in a very good location. All essential household furniture and appliances available at the apartment. The only downside is that there is no gas in the building which means higher energy bills and not sure how the winter will treat me as I haven’t lived through a winter yet in this development. The rent is a bit high for a single bed flat considering the essential bills not included in rent. But overall very pleased the overall package.

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

get the property cleaned properly, terrible to clean someone else’s hair

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

The building management replied five days late and said they can provide a mattress topper.

Northumbria house in Gosforth is a beautiful new building with nice luxurious apartments. I like the design with wide windows allow the sun and good ventilation into apartments. The only down side is the one lift for such a big building. It’s never busy but no back up when it’s out of order,

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

Close to the regent centre which links the whole city.
The are is safe.

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

N/A was a new building.

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

The team is always helpful. They reply emails and answer queries quickly.
