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.

The building is within one of the most central parts of town with east access to travel links, therefore suitable for both the commute as well as the local town high-street in which amenities are superb. The town has also recently gone through a major redevelopment. Communication and maintenance has always been top-notch meaning that the standard of living is greatly taken care of and a sense of secutiry is ensured throughout.

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

Central to both travel into London and amenities means that you’re always close to the overall necessities. The local park is also a quieter spot in easy walking distance.

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

There are a number of brilliant apartments depending on monthly rent therefore ensure that you view more than one size if you are looking for various options. The management are superb however with offering later viewings once you have moved in.

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

If any issues have been raised, then the communication has always been responded to immediately. Reccommendations as to how things can be assisted have always been given. Overall however, I have not had to raise any issues.

The building its self is great everything you need under one roof, for a great reasonable price to. Weather you plan on staying here for a long time or for a short time its the perfect home or home away from home. The over all feel to the building is very welcoming and friendly the management team has been great.

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

Being new to Greater london, watford was the perfect place to start with two tube lines going straight into central london and to other places such as Wembley, Euston and Harrow theres plenty of options to take. With the beautiful local park just minutes walk away its the perfect way to spend a hot day if you dont want to travel far, with the town center being on the doorstep its great for weekly shops and getting any and all groceries needed weekly food markets, great choice of shops. There is a local Sainsbury’s just around the corner perfect for grocery shopping.

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

The rooms are spacious but not massive. If your staying for a short period of time dont over do it you dont need the kitchen sink they have kindly provided you with one.

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

I havent had to raise any issues within the building.

Hello Chris,

Thank you so much for taking the time to write us a review.

We’re delighted to read your comments on the maintenance and cleanliness of the property. Similarly, it’s great to find tut that you benefited from using our 110-space car park.

You’re very right to say that The Quarters Watford suits short-term stays. We’re a great choice for individuals looking for a stop gap between properties.

Thank you for staying with us.

Secured accommodation.
Facilities in a good condition.
Mostly comfortable design of the apartments, but would benefit from a better planing of the bathrooms and kitchenette – a few drawers/organizers would save functional space.

House manager and the team is great, quick to respond to all the queries and issues.
Nice location.
Comfortable and clean.

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

Laundry and WiFi (fast) facilities: both are available and convenient to use, but requires additional (although small) payment

Katie and her management team are excellent – always with an eye for detail and ALWAYS very helpful. The property is spread over six floors with a service lift to all levels. I’ve now stayed on the third and now fourth floors. The rooms are perfectly adequate – you’ve got a 4′ 6″ bed, large combi wardrobe and a lovely en-suite bathroom. The “kitchen” area is small and has a microwave, kettle and sink – all OK if you can live off cooking with a microwave!
The rooms have electric heating on a phased cycle – you’re never cold in the winter and the windows open fully in the summer to cool the rooms down.
There are two industrial size washing machines & tumble dryers on the ground floor – you need to pick your times but I have never failed to get washing done OK.
There is chargeable parking next door if you have a car but, unless you need a car, the immediate access to Watford Junction station and the town centre negates the need for one.

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

This is my second stay at The Quarters in Watford. Katie and her team have always gone that extra mile, from application through to handing you your access key, to ensure you are dealt with fairly and correctly.
The site is just off St. Albans Road in Watford – less than 400 yards away from Watford Junction train station and a 10 minute walk into Watford town centre.
There are local convenience shops for basis and a large Sainsbury’s as you get to the town centre.
Watford Borough Council have a sports centre a stones throw away so you’ve got all you’ll need VERY close to the site.

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

Can be noisy in rooms at front overlooking St. Albans Road
