Clean spacious and quiet residence in such a good location. Main range has been dealt with as we have needed it. I use the gym and it’s small but effective. Always security so the building always feels safe and secure. Not a lot of noise past eleven !

Could be a more local shop , but we have tried surrounding restaurants and they are great. No traffic noise

Yes within the next working day / toilet needed fixing and was fast to respond

Well located with modern designed accomodation

Really well located private accomodation with an emphasis on design. Many "little touches" are added such as the heated bathroom mirror that wouldn't be missed if it was omitted but makes the whole experience more enjoyable. On-site gym is free for use and never too busy and the proprerty management are *almost* always available when you need the,

Please tell us about the good and bad aspects of living in your local area:

Really close to train station, you can make it from the front door to platform in under 10 minutes if you are quick enough.

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

Everything starts with a conversation and it is resolved by management when possible

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

Love the fact the flat came furnished, it is spacious and modern and the design is great. The building has a gym. The building is well managed and ran, always tidy and looked after. It has good amenities nearby. It is a positive that if you have any issue it is resolved quickly.

Please tell us about the good and bad aspects of living in your local area:

Location to city centre is perfect especially working in city centre. Parking availability could be better

Replied straight away when we needed repairs for the bath, fixed it within 24 hours

Neutral and modern design

Amy (Tenant)

Verified Resident

Nov 2023

We really like the design of the entire building, it is neutral and modern. The apartments are spacious, modern and offer good value for money. There is an on-site gym which saves you paying for a separate membership. The building is managed well. If you have any issues, they are resolved quickly.

Please tell us about the good and bad aspects of living in your local area:

Close to train station and quayside. Not lots of parking local and the parking is more expensive however you pay for the location as we are very close to town and amenities. We are very close to shops, bars and restaurants.

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

They have resolved any issues quickly and carefully.

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

The apartments are modern and spacious but offer little bench space in the kitchen so do not bring too many appliances.
