No back window over the harbour side.

Verified Resident

I have moved to this area from Bath as i have family here. I got my flat from a housing association.
Live in a studio apartment, does not have a balcony whereas the flat above shades my kitchen as they have a balcony.
Perfectly laid out for one person.
No gardens therefore there is no communal atmosphere.
Car parking right under my window therefore i get fumes in my flat.
No lights for the back so very dark when I get home.
Flowers, better than nothing.
No back windows so can only see the huge pile of sand.
No built for community.

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

I love the location from here as I can get to town easily on foot or by bus.
Because I rent rather than own my flat I cannot get a fob for the main gate, therefore it is really hard to move big objects in and had to move the small entrance to move in, which was difficult for the movers and cost me more money.
The community area for the bins are not well kept, there is no investment to keep on top of it
Not much grass to walk my dog
No concierge
I believe the land is owned by SS
There is a big block of sand and it is a horrible eye sore
There are two large guard dog guarding it, a person was bite by one that escaped
Not informed about what will happen to that land

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

Would have liked to know no fob key. Got a bill for using a fob however they had no proof.

Safe area

There is a resident group.
Management is not pro-active, raise fee yearly for no perceived benefit.
Good phone signal but I am having difficulties to persuade the management agent to install fibre broadband.

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

I love the locations and the proximity to Wapping Wharf and Temple Meads.
I do not like the fact that I cannot use the car park next door but I am not allowed because I do not have a fob.

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

Every year I get a demand for increased management fee and it is never explained what it is for as there is no change to any services.

Nice place to live

I commute to work by car, i cannot use the car park because I rent rather than buy. I have an open balcony. I’m quite happy living here and am satisfied with the way it is managed. It’s nice and quiet.

Management is good, everything is looked after, it is clean and well kept.

Overall happy

When i moved in it was new and clean and already had all the appliances.
The doors in hallway bang really loudly when they are slammed shut so it would be nice if they could be silenced or slowed down for them to be quieter.
I would be happy to recommend this to anyone.
Its a good place if you have young children.

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

I wished that i would have been told that there is mo greenery, park or even trees. Its just concrete.

Enjoyable place to live

Its a lovely location, the neighbours are nice and there is a good communal feel in my block.
The management company has sorted out past problems fairly quickly, although there was still occasional difficulties.
The gates and lifts sometimes do not work however it was repaired quickly.
I cannot afford a parking space.
My block is dark as it is at the end i would would like for there to be more lights.

What is the best feature of your home?

It felt comfortable and warm. It’s close to everything that i need.

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

The flat is comfortable and warm.
I dislike the fact that the bin storage is too small for this development.

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

I like it here

Verified Resident

It’s my favorite place to live in Bristol, however it is quite expensive.
We have a cleaner and everything is clean, there is no chaos.
It’s a beautiful location right by the river.
Its not near any road so there is no constant traffic you usually get making it a serene area.
I like it here not much bad things to say.

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

The balconies are very small, there is no greenery expect its lovely.

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

I like the aesthetic of the building and that it is really quiet.
However i have not got any outdoor space.
Also, there is not a lot of extra spacd and my view is my car park but i do not mind it so much.

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

The views are not great as mine is a car park.

It’s a really nice place to live

Verified Resident

A comfortable quiet place to live. I like that it’s near the Harbour, the shops and facilities in North Street. I like the fact that I can cycle everywhere I need to go from my place. Although the flat is quite small it’s open plan. I have lovely neighbours. I love the fact that it came with a fitted kitchen.

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

There’s not enough bins and I’d love if there would have been more trees and plants.

Really nice

It’s a central area the location is really good there’s will be further developments in a few months. neighbours are really nice.
City council are poor at getting bins sometimes miss picking them up for no apparent reason and they don’t leave it clean or how they’ve found.

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

Nothing I like everything about, it’s is really nice.

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

I like the building quality and location as it is close to town.
Management takes care of bins even if they don’t have to.

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

Not really as I did a lot of research

I love that I can walk to work.
I have a great management and have no concerns. Absolutely fine no concerns. I live in the attic and there is no door but it is not a concern for me. But overall I absolutely love living here.

I live on the top floor and there is no door to go there

I love that it’s peaceful but still close enough to the city center so that I can walk there.

My commute is on bike for about twenty minutes. No dislikes as I have lived here for years and we are not planning to move anytime soon.
One thing is that a few people got their bikes stolen a few years but the problem was solved quickly.

The close location to city center and work and the Harbour.

I really enjoy the location as it’s close to city center and Harbour and North Street.
