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.

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.

Professional, clean and easy

Verified Resident

I like the accommodation. It is very modern and sleek. It is quite small but very good overall. The people that come round are very warm and the concierge is friendly. It can get a bit loud sometimes because of the building works and construction.

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

The management’s response to issues is fine and concierge is great

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

I think it is a good place. It is close to the city centre and the jewellery Quarter. Only issue might be that it is a bit dodgy at some parts of the area.

We would highly recommend these properties to anyone. They are great value and are very nice and modern. We are happy with everything overall but would like if there was a shop close by or a coffee shop.

The area needs a shop or a coffee shop as there is only a Tesco.

Better than others – happy with it

I think the place is great. I am particularly happy about the dishwasher in my accommodation. The kitchen size is good however, the windows do not open fully so it can get a little too warm sometimes, especially over the summer.

I like the bathroom a lot. There is a lot of light.

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

The area could use a bit more parking space. Also there is some level of crime sometimes.

Issues

Verified Resident

Finishes to apartment are poor. Service under warranty is very poor also! The apartment is nice and design is good. I just have a lot of issues which have not been up to standard or sorted. Washing machine was not connected and flooded when it was being connected. Also some issues that have been resolved are not done good enough.

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

I would like the quality of finish to be up to standard.

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

Their is high car crime in the area I myself had to call the police 4 times. Other than that the rest is good.

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

Minimalistic

Verified Resident

It’s a great place to live and I would highly recommend. Building is confusing with floor numbers and apartment numbers but it’s a fun maze.
Hard for Uber eats to find as postcode is not registered and is changing.

What is the best feature of your home?

Everything is new and we have a concierge. The building clean and taken care of regularly

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

I dislike how people set rubbish on fire in the streets and also have seen some cars broken into. Some people have rented out their apartments and the people are partying and messing up the place. Other than that the building is a lovely place to live.

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

The apartment floors and numbers. The 4th floor is in another building also the lift says 2+ which is confusing

Modern Accommodation

Verified Resident

I am generally happy with my accommodation. It has been a really good experience so far. The building has Gym access so that’s great. Only issue might be that the water isn’t hot and tends to be lukewarm. Also it can get really hot in there especially over the summer and not well ventilated.

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

I would change the windows for better ventilation as it tends to get really warm

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

I am quite happy with the place however the ongoing building works can be quite inconvenient. There are loads of smashed windows so I don’t park my car around. However, there’s good parking and nice shops around.

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

I was told that I would have access to all six major tv boardbands but it’s very limited in choices. However that may be due to the new buildings coming up
