Great building and friend management at The Gessner

Verified Resident
Verified Resident
Review Date Jan 2022

Lovely building finished to a very high standard. Plenty of communal areas which is useful when working from home. Management are very helpful and always looking to go the extra mile, this highlights why living in a fully serviced apartment building is a very convenient and attractive option.

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

Great community with loads of amenities within the local area. Ample transport links with good accessibility to Central London.

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

This was initially a short term solution, however having enjoyed it so much I would moved in far sooner!

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

Always have a prompt response when a problem is raised with issues fixed within a short space of time.

The building management is amazing. All staff is incredibly friendly and helpful. Every inconvenience could be resolved within hours or couple of days. The flat is completely furnished and the quality of the furniture is perfect. 3 beautiful terraces and a garden are perfect additions to this apartment unit. Moreover, nowadays it’s quite cold and a smart heating system completely meets out requirements.

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

The area is wonderful: railway and underground stations are in 5 minutes from the building, there are many grocery and other shops in Tottenham Hale Retail Park, also there is a nice park where residents can walk their dogs. Our windows face the street, however, traffic noise does not disturb us.

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

There is a Tottenham Hotspur Stadium nearby, so sometimes it is impossible to get to the Tube station because of the crowds of football fans.

Comfortable accommodation

Review Date Oct 2022

I like the design of this building very much, there are many fitness facilities, and there are often some outdoor activities, such as yoga classes, music season parties.
There are comfortable sofas in the sofa area of the public facilities, and many design books are displayed. There are also many paintings by artists on the walls.

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

advantage:The quality of living in this area is ordinary, there are supermarkets and shopping malls nearby
It is also very convenient to take the tube, bus and train
Cons: Sometimes a bit noisy because the game is over in the middle of the night.

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

I would like to know if there is an air conditioner, because as an Asian home, there are air conditioners. This is the design of a new house without air conditioning.

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

They will provide me with solutions very quickly, and will always help if there is any problem.

Hi,

Thank you for taking the time to leave a review.

It is great to hear that you are taking advantage of the fitness classes and yoga sessions.

Unfortunately air conditioners were not installed within the apartments at The Gessner. I can certainly offer tips for next summer when the temperature rises again.

Thanks for your kind words regarding the team.

For us the building is amazing, our lease will end in March and we know we will be staying here. We enjoyed thee gym and the classes with Manor and will be happy if there were more classes available with them during the week. We like the terraces and the amazing views we can enjoyed from there. The management is friendly and we don’t have any complaints.

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

We would love to have more bars and restaurants near The Gessner, it is a nice area to live but we would enjoyed having places around. It is amazing having the underground and National Rail near, so we can move around the city, and it is also great having the Stansted Airport line near us so we can travel more often. For us it has been great that we can’t hear the traffic or construction noise unless we open the windows.

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

We would recommend to get the furniture from Way of Life, when you move in they are already there, they are comfortable and look nice.

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

We haven’t had any problems that needed to be resolved by management.

Hi Desiree,

Thank you for taking the time to leave a review.

It is great to hear that you are enjoying the gym and fitness classes with Manor. I will certainly pass on your comment regarding additional classes.

Hopefully more bars and restaurants will open soon in the area for you to enjoy. I totally agree that the underground to the city and overground to Stansted are great perks.

As always, you know where we are if you need us.

Amazing amenities and great location

Review Date Oct 2022

Classy and modern decoration, well looked after and always clean in common areas, great gym and 13th floor roof terrace. Always someone available to help when needed and great communication with tenants. Would be happy living here for longer than planned.

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

Great location, close to the station and lots of cafes and shops around, never too loud even next to a main road.

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

There’s nothing that I wish I knew about, everything was shared with us before moving.

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

They have been great with communication and sorting out any problems we have had.

Love the design of the residence, both in the furnished apartments and the common areas. Everything is looking clean, fresh and stylish. The property is very well managed and maintained, any issues or repairs are taken care of within a week at most. Great job!

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

With the Tottenham Hale retail park 5 mins away, you got all the shops you need nearby. When it comes to bars, restaurants and entertainment, obviously not the same experience as some other more developed areas, but expecting more to come in the near future. Perfect connection with city center though, very easy and fast commute!

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

No surprises really, I am very happy with the decision to move in

Reception was very friendly and trustworthy! Helped me a lot when I first move in. The interior nicely fits my taste, clean, efficient and comfortable, I really liked the kitchen. Me and my friend were quite satisfied with living in this apartment, it is quite cozy.

Comfortable to live in. I love the fact I can walk to the underground station and the mall center in few minutes

Tottenham Hale is already unrecognisable from just a couple of years ago. Living at the Gessner just makes life easier in such a busy city where every minute counts.

Everything has been thought of in such detail and it really is like living a life of luxury. The management are so helpful in particular James and Eric who will go out of there way to assist you in any way. The building is a beautiful, brick style New York style building with high quality decor. A stunning panoramic roof top terrace, private dining room, guest suites, gym. You could not really get better than this.

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

Living here is an absolute privilege. I have lived in London for over 25 years and never though I would get the chance to live in this wonderful building. The best comparison I can make is it is like living in a 5 star hotel. The quality and finish of the apartments is high end, absolutely stunning roof terrace, superb communal bbq, dining room, gym, guest suites for relatives and friends to rent. A 5 star concierge service who even come and replace a blown bulb. The Victoria line is basically opposite and you are in Central London in 15 minutes , it also benefits from the night tube, bus station. overground and easy access to the North Circular. Stansted airport is 30 minutes away. For football lovers Tottenham Hotspur’s new £1bn stadium is just a 15 minute walk. Tottenham Hale is undergoing impressive re-generation and I have not doubt it will be the new place to live. The only thing which they have left out is a beach and an ocean opposite the building. Maybe that is coming next year?

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

I wish I had heard of way of life before as the concept and ease of living has revitalised me.

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

Yes superb they react within minutes. The team are super friendly and any maintenance issues are rectified swiftly

Incredible design making you feel like you live in a luxury hotel, so many benefits such as the common space areas and the gym that really give you a sense of home throughout the entire building. The staff works around the clock to ensure the building looks its best and it really makes you want to be home

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

Despite being next to one of the most exciting stadiums in London and also being local to the Tottenham Hale tube station, it still offers a quiet ambiance and a local park. It’s right next to a whole selection of stores to shop in right across the road as well as many great restaurants just a tube stop away! As the area is quite new and currently being re build, you don’t really get any anti social behaviour and as a woman I feel safe in my area even after sunset. All in all a perfect location if you like to be close to London but still in a quiet and peaceful spot with all convenient things close to you.

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

I genuinely can’t think of anything, you get w exactly what is advertised 🙂

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

Immediate response and empathy with anything you need help with. From the moment we moved in they helped us move our stuff which already set the pace for an amazing service.

It’s a good design and use of space. Need more signage outside so it’s easier for delivery drivers to find this place. Also the buzzer for the lift is very annoying. It doesn’t make sense that bicycle storage is on the 1st floor with steep stair access. There should be a dedicated lift door bikes, or it should be on ground floor.

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

Good that its close to tube. There should be more restaurants and bars – there’s only fast food here.

Bike storage is bad, hard for delivery to find this place.

Hi,

Thank you very much for taking the time to leave a review.

It is great to hear that you would recommend us as a landlord and have had a good experience.

Your comments on deliveries and the location of the bike store is certainly noted. Please feel free to ask us to help with your bike at any time, we would be more than happy to assist. You are also able to bring your bike in through the main entrance and utilise the lift if you feel that may help going forward.

Please pop and see me when you can, as I would like to point out something with the lift buttons and discuss the bike store further.
