Review Date Jun 2022

The Whitmore Collection is designed to a high specification, creating a calm and easy to clean apartment with good kitchen space, comfortable furniture package option and floor to ceiling windows allowing lots of natural light and access to a balcony space. Ive not had any problems over the last 18 months and all the appliances/Broadband/heating work to a high standard. My friends who visit are all so impressed!!
I’ve loved getting to know the concierge team who have been consistent, available, incredibly helpful and friendly during my stay. The option to have pets also makes a rented space feel like a home.

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

The Whitmore Collection is ideally located a few minutes walk into the City Centre, New Street Station and also the Jewellery Quarter with its independent shops, restaurants and bars. It sits on the canal allowing easy access and a lovely walks to Broad Street and Brindley Place. It has beautiful views, sun rise and sun sets over the Jewellery Quarter.

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

I have lived on both sides of the building during my stay. The Canal side is warmer as it gets the sunshine directly onto your balcony mid morning to mid afternoon. The Jewellery Quarter side is quieter, has great views and gets the sun rise and sun sets but little to no direct sunshine.

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

They have been very helpful, friendly and attentive. Easy to communicate and put in requests via the Portal/App

I wish I’d moved here sooner!

Review Date Nov 2022

From viewing to move in, the Whitmore Team make the whole process easy, on hand to help at any time. The apartments and communal spaces are clean, modern and beautifully designed, allowing you to move in, unpack and enjoy asap! It’s a great place to call home and invite friends and family. A huge thanks to Becky & the whole team who have made what is usually a very stressful event, super exciting.

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

The Whitmore Collection is perfectly located to enjoy city living. It’s close to amenities and a variety of bars and restaurants but far enough away to enjoy quiet nights in. Whether you’re travelling around or driving in and out of the city, the secure parking and short walk to the station make it all stress free. The friendly staff and neighbours also provide a real sense of community here so you’ll feel right at home and never alone. I wish I’d moved in sooner!

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

The immediate increase to parking charges despite only just moving in are dissapointing.

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

Minimal issues since move in but the two minor problems I did have were dealt with effectively and efficiently.

Review Date Nov 2022

Cosy, nice and simple design, it is furnished with built-in oven, microwave and fridge, staffs of building and property management are nice and always with smile, you can easily collect your parcel at anytime you want without any issue. They would also play with your pet if you bring along with your pet.

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

Location is perfect and few minutes walk to city center which is really convenient, also it isby the canal side which gives you perfect view.

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

Pet friendly apartment, staffs here are also loving pets

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

Prompt response and providing excellent maintenance service.

Very professional team. Understand and help the problems and support me during entire process.

Review Date Oct 2022

Storage capacity for cupboard is sufficient but it would be nice if you increases game area space should be available with equal time. Shower speed should be increased. Managing curtains is also one area for improvement because they are not having horizontal movement

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

Excellent area for living. You feel like your are in your own home. Feeling better especially when you are in pet friendly area.

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

The only thing I would recommend to book way in advance if you have a car is the on street parking permit from council as it takes ages

A wonderful place to live

Verified Resident
Verified Resident
Review Date Oct 2022

I think everything is superbly managed. Having a concierge 24/7 is very useful especially with parcel deliveries. I love the design of my flat and everything is refined at high standards. I just think that only the wardrobe is not enough for two people, I had to buy a additional chest of drawer

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

Shops and restaurants are all around the area and it feels like a safe spot where to live. Also walking to the city center it takes less then 10 minutes, such a plus !

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

I wish I knew that this place is pet friendly earlier! Maybe they should do more advertisements about it as a lot of people struggle to find a place owning a pet unfortunately

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

Every question was answer in a matter of minutes as you can contact them via WhatsApp. Kasha was very helpful

Very spacious and beautifully designed. Good facilities. Very friendly management that helped me at every step from the first viewing to even after moving into the apartment. The building has a huge courtyard in the middle with a nice water fountain and enough space to have a walk.

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

Beautiful location with all amenities nearby. Quite at night so no disturbances. The people living at the location are also very decent and friendly. No wild parties that I’ve encountered

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

I didn’t notice it before but there is no rooftop access (but that’s just my mistake).

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

the management is Very quick to respond. It is easy to log any problems with an app and it gets resolved very quickly

Great apartments, great team!

Verified Resident

Review Date Oct 2022

The main advice is to let everything remain as beautiful. It would be great to have, for example, a bakery in the building. It would be convenient for tenants to have the opportunity to rent for example scooters or bicycles. In general, again, everything was fine.

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

It was a great time for our family! A great team has always helped with all the issues that arise. I recommend this landlord.

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

Everything is ok. I can’t remember any important aspects.

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

Each time, the team provided quick and professional assistance.
