The Point review

Verified Resident
Verified Resident
Review Date Mar 2021

The Point is really well presented and the management/customer services team are all very friendly. I stayed there during lockdown so sadly this affected the community vibe and there were rarely other residents in the public areas which were really nice spaces. The gym was great too.

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

The Point is in the perfect location in the centre of Aberdeen. There is a little noise due to this, however it was never a problem for me. The only real downside was that there is no dedicated parking in the building and the closest parking was 5 mins walk away and usually full, which made finding a space really difficult sometimes!

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

If I had know we were going to be in lockdown for the duration of my stay I would have considered staying somewhere less expensive as I didn’t get to take advantage of many of the great features of the Point.

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

I had a few problems with the automatic bathroom light not turning off and staying on for days. Each time I raised this the team they were quick to fix the issue.

Living at The Point

Verified Resident

Review Date Feb 2021

We have been living at The Point for a couple of months and have really been loving it! Staff is great, we love the different communal spaces, and love the events that are put on. I just wish we could utilize the gym and studio spaces that we are probably still paying for in some form

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

We really enjoy the location of The Point. Close to local amenities and public transport in the heart of the city!

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

Since it is a new build there is bound to be some problems! We learned that there was different contractors for different units so it definitely affects the build of the rooms

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

Since it is a new build we had some problems with our light sensors. I like the innovation but having only sensored lights seems like a waste of electricity and it took awhile for someone to look at our lights. It also seems that cheap flooring was put in as the furniture that was already there seems to be scratching the floor already

Review Date Feb 2021

Overall the building has an excellent construction there are all local amenities available nearby the building itself harbours a full functioning gym or cycle stand excellent terrace areas and beautiful garden rooms the reception itself is very welcoming and has 24-hour surveillance the management of the building is very helpful there is 24-hour availability whenever needed the only advice I would give to the management about the building is that residents should have a little more privacy.

The staff always very helpful there is a sense of being watched all the time and I’m sure the management can look into it and improve it to provide the residents a little more privacy.

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

The noise from the main traffic

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

It would’ve been ideal if before moving we knew about the lack of available resources

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

Donely one thing I would recommend regarding the one bed flats is that there is no place for storage if this can be included in the building elsewhere to be very helpful as most of the storage items are left in the main hall ways or the
main living rooms
Another suggestion would be that the residents would like a little more privacy from the reception staff I understand that their job is to have 24-hour service lesson for the betterment of the residents I believe that there is a costa sense of being watched.

One thing that the residents have unanimously complained about is the unavailability of the gym facilities we understand that there is national lockdown instructions have compelled the gym is to be close to but as residents of this building it would be a great gesture from the landlord and the company to lend us the gym equipment for the time being but when was the suggestion was put forward to the reception desk clearly refused

When I saw it for the first time, I knew I had to live here!

Review Date Feb 2021

The Point stands proud, towering above the surrounding buildings – the Garden Room on the third tower shines in the distance like a peaceful beacon of hope to a weary tenant returning home.
The inside of the The Point was designed with functionality in mind, originally built for student accommodation but since changed to focus on a more modern professional setting.
The building is staff are incredible, like extended family and all facilities managed to an elite standard.

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

In the heart of Aberdeen city centre, The Point overlooks renovation Union Terrance Gardens, nestled between an Art Gallery, nightlife, shopping malls and the surrounding has everything one could need at arms reach away.

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

It is very easy to forget that the fire alarms get tested at 10am on Tuesday mornings, be careful of handling sharp objects or hot drinks at this time – as the shrill sound catches you off guard almost every week!

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

I haven’t yet come across any problems here at The Point.

Great place to live

Verified Resident

Review Date Feb 2021

Really nice place to live, everything is very modern, clean and inviting. Gym is really well equipped and the social spaces are great. The staff are really friendly, so you always feel looked after. Any problems get sorted out straight away. Having bills included keeps things simple and I would definitely recommend living here.

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

Pretty much in the centre of town, so easy access to shops and hospitality.

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

The ovens in the studios are also microwaves, which is pretty handy and means you dont need to buy one.

What is the best feature of your home:

Access to great facilities like the rooftop terraces and gym.

The Point-best accommodation in ABZ

Review Date Feb 2021

The management team represents the touching point which gives the location a complete homely feeling. The entire design is very fine, facilities are great. Most likely, The Point is the best place to stay in Aberdeen, either if you are a student or a young career oriented person.

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

The central area in which the accommodation is located is perfect. From the shops to restaurants and other buildings, everything is great!

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

Everything that I know that, after 6 months of living there, has been said to me from the moment I signed the contract. Nothing new.

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

Not even a thing. The flat that I have is perfect.

The facilities that is available are incredible. Very clean and the views from them are insane.
The management have been amazing. They have offered to help with the move and made sure I felt as comfortable as I could and if there was any problems they were are there to help straight away.

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

It’s bang in the city centre! Anything you can thing of is right at your doorstep.

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

The lounge areas are incredible. There was no photos of them on the website, but they are so worth the wait to see in person!!

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

Personally I would of like a bigger window, but that is just a preference. The window I have is big enough

Outstanding place to live

Review Date Feb 2021

Living at The Point has been the most homely place I have ever rented. The staff are incredible and make it feel like the residents live within a lovely community. They go out of their way to ensure you are okay and are always engaging with us virtually and running competitions to keep things fun. The facilities are very modern and accessible. The gym has been a saviour for myself- being able to wake up and pop to the gym is life changing. All communal spaces are very stylish and cosy. All my documents throughout the process of renting this property have been handled professionally and with confidence. If we ever have any issues, staff are on site 24/7 to help as best they can. My only criticism, personally, would be for The Point to offer some kind of resident parking as having a car isn’t convenient due to the location. The apartments are on the pricier side but it is totally made up from the security, staff and quality of the rooms.

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

The location of The Point is second to none, living right on the doorstep of most bars, restaurants and high street shops- you’ll never need a taxi home again. The area feels very safe and is quiet at night time. Bus stops are literally on the door step of The Point which is ideal to get around the city. Being in the centre of town, it is very much within walking distance of Aberdeen University and the hospital campus- that’s what sold this location for me.

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

Something you won’t find out until you move in is the move in day. The staff were so accommodating by helping me carry my things to my room and I was welcomed by a lovely card and bottle of Prosecco. They ensured a fully detailed tour and answered any questions and even followed up a few days later to make sure everything was working fine and well.

What is the best feature of your home:

The quality of the rooms are very good. The mattress alone guarantees you a good nights sleep. I have managed to make my studio very homely and I love it.
