The Quarters Watford – a great place to stay if you have accomodation needs in Watford and want to be close to Watford Junction

Review Date Jul 2020

I’ve now stayed at The Quarters on two occasions and have spent circa 2 years of my life sleeping there.
Whilst the exterior of the building could be described as a typical high rise accomodation, the building is absolutely functional with well equipped self-catering rooms, an industrial laundry room, a lift, an adjacent payable car park, when it’s open, a nice general “meeting” room and, most importantly, the most accomodating professional management and maintenance staff that you would ever want to deal with. Katie and her team have been brilliant through both stays. Yes, there are occasional maintenance issues but you’re always kept well informed and inconvenienced to the absolute minimum.
I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending The Quarters 100% / 10 out of 10 if you have accomodation needs in cenral Watford.

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

The Quarters is less than a 2-minute walk of Watford Junction station. It is likewise about a 10 minute walk from Watford town centre including its INTU shopping centre and fully populated shopping high street including loads of pubs, restaurants, banks, …… Sainsbury’s is 10 minutes away for “main” shops but you’ve got local high street shops less than 2-minutes walk away.

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

If available, ask for a room facing the rear away from the main St Albans Road.

What is the best feature of your home:

Convenient to Watford Junction railway station and Watford High Street with its many shops, restaurants and bars.

There are more rooms and room types available than shown on the website. Maybe they should keep pictures of them as they become available to shown prospective clients.

First accommodation after relocation to the UK.

Review Date Mar 2021

Well managed by Katie, Agatha and Tim. Professional in all our dealings with them. Any communal issues were dealt with promptly via email. Their friendly faces and always being approachable made the time spent at The Quarters all the more pleasant. Well done !

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

Close to local amenities and public transport. Living on the St Albans Road side could be a little noisy, while the rooms on the opposite are very quiet.

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

Not readily visible on the web. Only put in touch after a local couple informed me about the accommodation.
Viewing on web not as accurate as a viewing in person.

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

Either in person or via an email in a very timeous manner.

Well Managed Studio with excellent transport links

Review Date Jan 2021

So easy to like these Studios sited between the shopping centre and Watford Junction Station. Really appreciated the large storage cupboards, broadband internet, the double glazing, and that very comfortable bed. The inclusion of a small on-site laundry is another welcome feature. The rooms and shared spaces use keycards, and you always feel safe here.

However, it was Katie and her friendly team, who time and time again put themselves out, to ensure that my stay was such a joyful experience. Malcolm the Maintenance Manager, would appear almost instantly, to carry out repairs and servicing day or night. The shared spaces are always kept clean, and a room cleaning service is available should you need it.
Highly recommended.

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

Watford Junction provides good transport links to London Euston, Hemel Hempstead, Milton Keynes, and St Albans. A large shopping centre is a short walk away, including banks, and plenty of restaurants and take-aways. Sainsburys is also nearby, although would ideally have liked more choice of supermarkets in the vicinity.

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

Mail and parcels are delivered directly to your room

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

The inclusion of an onsite restaurant would be welcome .

Love it here ! The staff are amazing, the other guests are like a new family, the rooms are designed& Decorated well, warm & comfy, have everything I need and plenty of people to help if I ask. Parking onsite. Key card entrance so I feel safe.

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

On a lockdown, so its just work and home atm – but Im told its awesome here with plenty to do ! Looking forward to it.

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

There is a little smoking place around the back, being a smoker its very important, would be better if there was a private designated, better sheltered area, with comfy seating as it seems to be a general meet and socilaise area – its where Ive met lots of my neighbours. (Although they do provide stools and an overhead shelter) but Im told there used to be an outdoor heater too !

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

Never had an issue, but I’ve met the maintenance man and he’s on site and very helpful

4 month stay – great experience

Review Date Jan 2021

The staff are lovely and it’s a lovely modern new design that is welcoming for all. Feels very safe and well looked after. Small apartments but ideal for short term stay (ideally just one person staying) positioning of the sink is inconvenient but all works well.

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

Busy area so parking expensive but perfect location with station and town center 5 min walk away

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

I wish I had known about the tough to clean showers but otherwise very positive stay so nothing to comment. Was given lots of details before moving in

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

Instantly responded and assisted with any queries I have had

An easy-to-find location and excellent building management makes for a very welcoming place to be. Facilities and amenities are easy to find and assistance in queries from the management team always means for great peace of mind. You are able to make your own home-like additions allowing for the place to feel warm, comfortable and familiar. Travelling both by public and personal transport is also easy given the location and proximity to multile transport links. In the meantime, the local open air allows for plentiful exercise and walking space.

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

An excellent locaiton meaning that town amenities, transport links and open air exercise spaces are easily accessible.

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

Be sure to view the number of amenities available and different rooms as each can accommodate your personal needs.

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

Any questions raised such as maintenance or amenities for the room have always been answered in good time with the most helpful of information – it makes the daily routine far more enjoyable knowing that help is at hand.
