Kettleworks

Lovely apartment with loads of light. Big spaces compared with many new builds.
Noise from the A road can be a bit annoying and the energy efficiency and heating isn’t amazing.
Concierge is always lovely and Seven Capital reporting systems work okay.

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

Area is quite quiet as surrounding developments have not been finished yet but super close to the nearest doctor and a 15 min walk from nice pubs and bars in Jewellery Quarter.

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

The type of oven used in the development is a bit odd so not the best if you’re big into cooking.

Love the location

Verified Resident

I love my accommodation. The ceilings are high and the windows are big which I really like. A few aspects of it could be better but overall i think it’s fine and I am very happy with it. It’s a good place to live.

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

I have had a few issues with the management team. I have sent emails a few times and there has been no response.

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

It’s easy to walk into town and there’s parking so that is great. Good restaurants and bars around. Can get a bit dodgy on the outskirts

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

There’s nothing I wish I had known prior to moving in. It is all as expected.

Too many issues

Verified Resident

So many issues with contractors and seven capitol we’ve been passed on through them and the contractors and are not getting out issues resolved. We have been waiting 98 days for someone to come fix an issue and still nothing. The experience has been a nightmare.

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

Building management worst than seven capitol takes too long to fix anything.

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

We like how new the building is and how modern the apartments are. The concierge are so friendly.
We dislike all the issues that have arisen and not been resolved.

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

Knowing seven capitol and how they deal with problems. They just pass us on to someone else and nothing gets resolved.

Location is perfect!

Verified Resident

Location is perfect! Penthouse is small for what you pay. Also I have had some issues that have not been resolved. My sliding doors don’t hold out the rain. The neighbours let out their apartments to
Airbnb so constantly have loud drunk people staying next door which is not ideal. Moving to a different apartment block soon but in the same area.

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

People renting to Airbnb. I would have none of that.

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

I like the area there’s lots of bars close by. The walk to work is only 20 mins so location is perfect.
I live in one of the pent houses and the neighbours are renting to Airbnb which results in parties all the time.

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

I wish I had of know some apartments are rented through Airbnb

Modern, good facilities.

Very clean apartments and building. The staff keep everything clean and running smoothly. It is very good to have a gym in the building. And I love that the concierge is 24 hour. If facing the courtyard it can be noisy in summer.

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

They have been good but I have not had many issues.

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

I like how modern the apartments are. Also I love how big the windows are.
I dislike how my apartment echos from the courtyard so it gets quite loud especially in summer

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

I was informed of everything before moving in and asked if everything I needed to know before then.
