The Place To Live in Newcastle

Review Date Aug 2019

The Forge is an all round excellent place to live. Great city location, building is great and always secure! Staff are always friendly and helpful! Residents are friendly and everyone gets along well. The communal area is always clean and tidy and a great place for everyone to chill out in.

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

Love the fact that all the bars local and plenty of restaurants around! And a personal favourite is the fact I work right next door! Nothing really that I dislike about the area!

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

One of my friends lived here so I pretty much knew everything about this place!

I moved to The Forge couple of months ago, and I’m amazed by the professional level everything is managed. Although, the process to move in took longer than expected, the process was fully digitalised.
The management staff showed me various different apartment layouts, till I found the one I was looking for and its perfect!

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

Centralised location and close to the train and metro stations which makes easier to commuters.

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

Nothing really, everything was made clear to me before moving in.

Excellent place to live with your pets

Verified Resident
Verified Resident
Review Date Jun 2019

1. It is very hard to find a flat that really friendly to your pets. I have a dog and I take him down to the courtyard everyday. There’s a piece of gravelled terrace for dog to go to the toilet. And there are benches, lawn, bark chips flower bed (which is dog’s favourite), smoking areas, a nice courtyard and a friendly community with many four paws friends. If you live in the ground floor, there’s convenient door access to the courtyard, feels like your own home.

2. The facilities are well-equipped and brand new. There’s a gym, not very big but it’s enough for regular exercise( actually I haven’t use the gym since I got the dog ). Meanwhile, there’s a big public area for all kinds of activities such as holding a party or something, and I see some people studying at the quiet area. Anyway I personally seldom use the public area, but I quite enjoy the coffee machine. It is worth mentioning that the Forge gave every tenant a free coffee cup , before that, I always ask for disposable paper cups, which is not environmentally friendly.

3. Stuffs are friendly and easy to talk with, 24-hours reception, I could often get help when I need a hand.

4. The interior is modern and the furnitures are all brand-new, which is good, but I personally think the furnitures are too many for a room, some could be removed. But they do furnished room or unfurnished, no partial-furnished, which is a shame. Now we are considering to move into a bigger unfurnished room, gonna spend some extra money on our own furnitures.

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

LIKE:
1 .Close to the riverside which is a good place to walk the dog.
2. Near the police station – trust me you will feel more safe.
3. Close to the train station which is convenient.
4. great river view from the south block.
5. there’s a parking building just the side of the road.

DISLIKE:
1. the nearest convenience store is in the train station, well, about ten minutes walk. And you need 20 mins to walk to the commercial centre. Many good restaurants and supermarkets there, well, not very far away, but it’s tiring when you buy bags of stuffs. and its too close to driving, just an awkward distance.

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

The windows of 6th floor in North block and the 7th floor in west block actually only half height of other rooms. I didn’t aware of that. Personally viewing the flat is recommended.

Being new to the city the Forge is perfect – the location is central but tucked away from any lairy nightlife, the flat is set up for an easy move & the concierge & gym facilities are lovely!

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

I love how central yet quiet it is – literally everything is on the doorstep (including access to national rail links) but it doesn’t feel that I’m in a city centre as soon as I step out the door.

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

That there’s no storage under the bed!

I had a very good experience at The Forge. The facilities are outstanding, especially the gym and the common room with the coffee machine and large-screen TV. I also liked particularly that the building is at close vicinity to the train station and a five-minutes walk from the various shops and restaurants of the city centre.
