Moved 1 month ago. I really appreciate the professional way the team has handled the move
– Tenancy check was straight forward using uktenantdata.com, you get updates on each phase of the check.
– Detailed report of the pre-move check on the apartment
– All home appliance manual made available online for reference
– In the heart of the town. Good for tenants without of vehicle as most of the shops are nearby including GP
– Sara and Tracy ~ helpful and professional staff on-site for assistance.
– This two bedroom apartment is light and airy and benefits from a spacious open plan living space

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

– For internet broadband there is no option to switch providers.

In case if you get your broadband bills re-reimbursed by your company, Platform doesn’t provide bills/invoices from Internet.

What is the best feature of your home:

– View of Crawley town from my living room
– 2x Bathrooms very convenient for a family with kids
– Lounge access for get together free of cost.
– Concierge/Helpdesk takes care of receiving couriers on our behalf

The properties offered at Crawley Platform are great for professionals and are located centrally which is great.

Nice and central in good distance to shops and restaurants and transport links.

I personally wish that we would have waited a little while to move in as we moved in during phase one and encountered some ongoing issues with the water.

A lovely apartment with modern appliances, located in the centre of town. The only slightly negative point is the heat generated in the building, which can make it feel like a sauna. Local assistance is wonderful, with the local concierge going out of her way to help. I am disabled. Central customer service can be a bit hit or miss, but we eventually get there. Rent is more than flats outside town, but these are far better in design and services, making them worth the extra.

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

The location, in the centre of town, is a major attraction with a large shopping mall and various supermarkets in easy reach. Excellent travel with trains to London, 5 minutes from M23 and 10 minutes from Gatwick, but not under the flightpath. Lots of restaurants, leisure centre, large cinema complex make it popular with everyone.

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

The heat in the flats. Great during winter but terrible during the longer, hotter summers

Hi Paul, thanks for your review and glad to read that you are like the apartment, location and Concierges. We have recently done some works to improve the temperature so it should be a bit cooler during the summer months.

Great experience and wonderful location..wouldn’t rent anywhere else.

This property is perfect for anyone who wants to stay in the heart of the town and have great amenities like on site gym, roof terrace and lounge that you can book in advance for a private party. Excellent communication from the concierge and building manager. The apartment itself is very luxurious with nice finishes and design. Overall a great experience and couldn’t`t recommend more.

Design is modern with very good sound proofing to the neighbouring flats. Location is ideal for our lifestyles with easy access to Gatwick. The rooms can be very overheated during the summer, we haven’t once used the heating in the last 18 months as there is no need to even in winter. A few water issues and have had to chase before receiving any call-outs. Last winter we went nearly 3 weeks without hot water and then was charged the same amount on utilities as every month. The gym is the highlight as is rarely over crowded and maintained well. Other benefits such as the cinema room and ground floor area seem to be monopolised by the same family and there is no clear indication on how to book these areas. The main criticism would be the cost of extras. We have to pay extra for keeping a pet even though we have paid a larger deposit for having one and the cost for parking has no competitive advantage as we use car parks in town which actually saves us money each month. The car park is noticeably empty and would easily be filled if the price was lowered.

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

Location is great. Having security also helps with comfort as is the nature of a town centre to be “lively” at weekends.

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

Extra costs building up and temperature of the flats in summer

Only dislike is lack of storage space.

There is a light at the end of the floods

Review Date Dec 2019

First impressions of Platform, was that it was a “newly” refurbished apartment complex with good intentions. As with all properties, it comes with good and not so good things. The flat itself is OK, clean and good finishes although once you start living in it, things like flooding (ceiling issues), heating problems in mid winter and no hot water, start to arise. Besides this, the bright light/star of all this is the Concierge and Tracy has been a wonderful professional and human being that worries about the tenants and ensures we all live in a comfortable and secure area, she has been the reason we still reside in Platform. Thanks Tracy!

Good location and transport links, walkable and shops

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

The walls are paper thin and the ceiling is not very helpful for the rain
