Good location

Verified Resident

Nice furniture and decor. Modern look. View of docks from my high up room is lovely.
The seagulls are a nuisance. Noisy.
Management are slow to fix broken lift etc.
Gates, lift broken.
Over all I’ve been really happy living here. Moving to London soon.

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

All good for me. I’ve loved it here in Liverpool and sorry to go.

Central. When there are festivals and marathons on there can be congestion, roadblocks, and cant get into the flats easy. Great they have so many festivals.

Nice place the bars and restaurants are convenient and of great quality. People are nice, lived in Liverpool for 6 years now and would recommend this place to anyone looking for a place to stay with good value.

What is the best feature of your home?

Balcony, the gym and the meeting rooms are really useful

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

The view is really nice. Place is commutable. There is a new Tesco which opened up, which is really convenient. Use the lobby quite often as a meeting area.

I did plenty of research before i got here. So not really

Good location modern apartments

Verified Resident

Particularly like the car park. Always get a parking spot. £75 a month, but I’m happy with that. Its parking in the centre. It is sensored to the reg plate. Moved in and we didn’t have to do anything. The maintenance are good and fast. It is quiet in our flat, we cant hear the neighbours.

What is the best feature of your home?

The location. L1 is on our doorstep and easy to get to the train station.

Like. Safety
Nothing we dont really like.

City centre. Near everything

Verified Resident

I really like the facilities.

Found it on google, rightmove. Not a problem moving in, fast and easy. No surprises with prices. Dont use the gym, its not good enough, it should’ve better for the rent. The car park is good and big. They do some events in the media room. We can rent that out for a birthday party. There is a room for football matches.

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

No, quite good. I’m happy overall with living here.
Please tell us what you like and dislike about this area:

Near everything. Location is phenomenal.
Dislike how many drink people come through the area.

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

Its all furnished and ready. You dont need to buy anything to move in.

Good location and affordable

Verified Resident

Very well located as i work in a building nearby. There are also good transport links as the bus station is close from which you can get a direct transport to the airport. The maintenance staff is quick to respond if something is wrong but the lift breaks frequently and it takes time to get fixed.

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

Modern design , gym convenient, helpful receptiom staff friendly

Maintenance ok

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

I wish i was told how noisy the seagulls are before moving in!

Friendly staff. Great location

Verified Resident

I haven’t been here long. The move in process is easy. I moved in fast and haven’t used he management yet. The deposit was expensive, with a month and a half rent. I use the gym, could be better, but it has everything you need on your door step. The gym is never too busy. The flats are very modern and stylish. They get ridiculously hot, but you can hear the traffic when you open the window. Plenty of space. Big kitchen with big fridge freezer.

What is the best feature of your home?

If you’ve got friends in other flats… thats the best part.

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

Pros: Tesco right there. Centre of town. Good for a night out. Has good gym. 5 mins from the shop.
Cons: Cam here the main road as a light sleeper.

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

Be aware that its a lot of money upfront. Once you get approved it is sprung upon the tenant.

Great location

Verified Resident

Close to shops and cafes. Lots of cameras. Lights outside so its light when it gets dark. Lots of security patrolling.
It is safe. Waiting to get the car reg in the parking system. I have used the gym a couple of times. They aim to make it bigger as it is quite small. Gym is small but spacious. Has most of the machines you would want. Close to the high street shops. I live in the tesco, it is easy to shop at tesco. The flat is really nice. Nice quality, new build, no marks, no damage. You can have pets and decorate as you like.

What is the best feature of your home?

Definitely location. I can travel around town easy and travel on the train.

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

Like: The location. I can get the train for travel
Dislikes: Sometimes you need to ask a couple of things to get things done.

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

No. Take parking into consideration. Parking is per car, not per flat.

Best quality in Liverpool

Verified Resident

I only just moved in but so far Im really happy with this property. I chose to live here because a lot of my friends have been living here for 3 years already. The quality of this development is outstanding, there is an amazing gym, shops, the reception staff are very nice and friendly. I would definitely recommend this place but maybe not for students as i know of other student accommodations that have more better suited facilities for students.

The location is really good but however my uni is not around here its not the best for me

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

I knew everything before moving in to the property.

Well kept with an underground car parking, free WiFi and 24hr concierge included.
Expensive but value for money as you get what you pay for. Its the nicest in the area I have viewed.
All good in location as its 25 min from work. I am here for 5 years. Moved from Newcastle.
I don’t know the area very well so am just finding out but it’s a great location.

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

I’ve not had any problems so far. It’s all been good.
