Can not think of anywhere better to live than The Green Rooms

Verified Resident
Verified Resident
Review Date Oct 2020

Living at The Green Rooms is better than I possibly imagined. It meets all of my requirements as it’s a social building full of lovely residents, managers who are always on stand bye to greet you and support, plus full of gorgeous pets! It has a lot to offer with communal areas, conference room, onsite gym, concierge (so you never have to miss a parcel) and a coffee machine. It is also a peaceful and relaxing development where you can have your space and enjoy incredible views of the Quays. When I’m on my balcony I often feel transported far away like I’m on holiday with a sea view 🙂 I couldn’t ask for more for a home and I can’t envisage ever wanting to move.

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

The location at Media City is perfect for me with my work near by, several restaurants and bars, plus supermarkets and gyms. I love being next to the water on the Quays. I’ve lived here 9 months and I’m still not board of the view.

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

Parking is probably the only issue and with multi story car parks being built near by- this could bring both pro’s and cons.

If there is one thing you would change about your flat or property what would it be:

I can not think of anything which would improve it. The development is always clean, tidy, well managed and friendly. Our three bedroom corner apartment has everything we need: lovely modern kitchen including dishwasher, modern bathrooms, perfect bedrooms, great king size beds, fabulous wrap round balcony. It is perfect temperature- not too hot or cold. The apartment was fully furnished with brand new lovely furnishings. I can not think of anything else we need.

Really modern design inside the flat and in communal areas.
Beautiful well spaced balcony’s
Gym is much larger than most I’ve had in any accommodation
Communal areas are lovely and are always clean and smelling fresh. Love that it’s a dog friendly building as it means little one has loads of friends!

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

Great place to live , really lovely decor and location is great for media city workers!
Shops are within 20 minute walk which is decent and tram and bus links to most areas are within a short walk too

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

Lots of dogs in this building!

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

Maintenance issues sorted fast and communication very easy

The design of the flats and facilities is second to non in the media city area. They are modern and clean without being boring or sterile looking. The built in wardrobes are an added bonus which means you can make the most of the space in the bedrooms. The balconies are an incredible feature as they are larger than standard and come on every single flat where as usually with other apartment blocks they would be an extra charge and hard to come by.

The building management and property management I can not compliment enough. On a day to day basis the staff never fail to put a smile on my face as I leave or enter the building. They make a huge effort to make a great community atmosphere with painting and Prosecco evening and bingo! They go above and beyond everyday to make sure every resident (and pet!) are happy and cared for.

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

Living at The Green Rooms is amazing for transport links to the centre of town but should be best known for its surrounding areas filled with lots of different shops, gyms, cafes, bars and even a cinema! The only down side would be parking – £150 on top of rent for a space to have your car accessible is quite steep and has meant that my boyfriend has resorted to parking a 15 minute walk away which means having the car isn’t as convenient as it should be. We do realise this isn’t Green Rooms fault as they don’t set the prices, but if there was a way for them to offer their own parking at affordable rates then there would not be a single complaint!

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

I wish I’d known what a delight The Green Rooms would be to live in. I have had my fair share of bad landlords especially when I was student and it gave me real apprehensions about renting in the future and what nightmares can occur. Delaney, Avril and the gang make renting enjoyable every day.

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

We have had a couple of minor issues with the property being a new build and the repair has been incredibly fast even with lockdowns and social distancing!

Green rooms minus the pets-The real clean and green rooms

Review Date Apr 2021

The green rooms facilities and living standards are good. But more can be done to remove the nasty pet odour which spoils the aesthete and quality of the place.
Management needs to look into how to wash and clean the filth these creatures can bring.

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

Overall, calm and cosy environment. Good transport nearby, Good takeaway and coffee nearby.

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

Co living of communal areas with pets

If there is one thing you would change about your flat or property what would it be:

As mentioned above, the coliving with animals. Wash your pets.

Thank you for your feedback, we value what our residents think about us and how we are doing and where we can improve on.

We are delighted that you feel the facilities at The Green Rooms are good along with the living standards. I appreciate since moving in we have had a few more four legged friends arrive and make friends with others in the building, in response we have increased the cleaning regime of the corridor and reception areas over the year with scheduled carpet cleans to help maintain the standards at The Green Rooms.

Once all communal areas are opened we will review these again.

Many thanks Avril

All communal areas are delightful and very well kept. All of the Green Rooms team are friendly and approachable. The finish of the flat is good and we didn’t have many snagging issues compared to some new build flats. Gym has been great to use. Flat is well laid out and well equipped.

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

Close to the tram stop, walks around the lovely Salford Quays and some shops / restaurants (although the nearest convenience store recently closed so this has meant there are no supermarkets within a 10 minute walk). Parking is an additional cost at the multi-storey opposite, unfortunately this is rather expensive. Little noise can be heard from the apartment.

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

One side of the building gets very little sunlight which is such a shame. Parking price is way above average for the area from what I can tell.

What is the best feature of your home:

The flat is finished well with great appliances. Any issues fixed promptly by maintenance. Pets are allowed too and welcomed with open arms.

Hello Callum,

Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review.
I am happy to read that you are enjoying living here, sorry that you don’t see much sunlight but please of course let us know if you would like to swap apartments?

We have just received some exciting news that new amenities will be opening in the coming months so this should make shopping a little easier for those essentials we all need!

We simply love pets here and we will always welcome them all!

Many thanks

I’ve been living at The Green Rooms for a year now and can’t see myself leaving any time soon. I love how bright and airy the apartments are with floor to ceiling windows and decent sized balconies. The flat has a decent amount of storage and comes with high quality furniture if you’re taking a furnished flat. Any issues I’ve had maintenance wise have been dealt with really quickly by management and they always communicate to make sure they’re working around you. The on-site gym has everything you need (apart from a pool…) for a decent work out and the communal areas are great for working or hanging out. The pet-friendly nature of the building means that even if you don’t have pets, you get to see at least one dog a day which is a bonus.

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

Living in MediaCity is the perfect balance. You have the calm serenity of hearing the water of the quays from your balcony, the buzzing nightlife of the bars nearby if you want an easy drink or night out, the perfect place to have a stroll with small supermarkets nearby but also within a 15/20 minute tram ride to town if needed. It can sometimes be noisy with people on bikes and skateboards or people milling around in the evening but with the MediaCity security doing the rounds you never feel unsafe. My only main downside is parking. It’s quite expensive and there aren’t many cheaper alternative options nearby.

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

The Green Rooms is like a little community which I never expected. There’s always someone who’ll be willing to help you out if you need or who’ll stop for a chat.

If there is one thing you would change about your flat or property what would it be:

The parking is quite expensive with no other cheaper options or street parking nearby

Having lived in a different building next door I am used to the design. Apartments are well laid out with added benefit of onsite gym, working area, gallery to enjoy the river view. Building management are perfect and pro active. Staff are excellent and friendly and make you feel you’ve “come home”. Neighbours are friendly, polite and having some gorgeous little dogs around makes a great place to live.

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

Media city has a lot to offer. Great transport links to city. Plenty of local places to hang out (Post lockdown) limited parking at qm affordable rate but having lived in London for 10 years it is comparable. Lovely area to walk and always feel safe.

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

How good it was. I viewed this building before and chose another due to availability but I am so glad I made the move. This is HOME.

If there is one thing you would change about your flat or property what would it be:

I’d maybe suggest upgraded fixtures and fittings in the bathrooms and better water pressure in the shower. That’s absolutely me being pernickety.

The building itself stands out in Media City, it’s absolutely stunning, I always feel so proud to live here. The interior design is incredibly modern and fresh. It has a super stylish clean aesthetic. The communal area facilities are perfect. Lovely open space for people to work from home or engage in communal gatherings. The gym, although small, serves a purpose. I would prefer to see more free weight equipment but I understand this may not be possible with health and safety unless you have a PT in the gym at all times. But it’s a great space to complete a workout.

The management are brilliant! Always on hand when you need help and incredibly friendly and engaging. Particular shoutout to Del and Jess who are always warm and welcoming and bring good energy to the building.

My only criticism in terms of the interior design is that some things don’t seem to be thought through too well. For example theres a lack of plugs in suitable places in the apartment which makes it difficult to furnish. Some of the finishes are a bit messy in terms of paint work and alignment of cupboards etc. Things do seem to have been rushed. I also don’t understand why the Master Bedrooms do not have the ensuite, surely this would have made more sense? Other than that I love these apartments, the light bright airy space is refreshing and feels like home. You don’t need a place in the sun, you need a place on the quays.

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

Location is a million percent 5*****. A very safe place to live with security always doing their bit and checking the area regularly. The bars and restaurants are great (when open) and it’s a short walk to the tram so easy access into central Manchester. It’s a lovely vibrant area with lots to do and beautiful landscapes. A very quiet and peaceful place to live. Nothing bad to say about the location.

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

Parking. The lack of free parking in the area makes it incredibly hard to have friends or family over as it costs an absolute fortune to stay even a few hours. Complimentary parking for residents should be available given the cost of the flats.

What is the best feature of your home:

The view of the quays. The balcony overlooks the quays, ITV and over Trafford. The bright open windows allow for a lot of light which is incredibly refreshing in an apartment. This by far has to be one of my favourite things. It’s a breath of fresh air in comparison to my old flat that had small windows and little light. This is perfect and the balconies are a brilliant size.
