I like the style

Verified Resident

The design and style is very good, however, the lack of air conditioning should not have been overlooked.

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

The location is great for transport links and the distance to the city centre.

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

I wish I had realised about their being no air conditioning

Thank you for taking the time and trouble to leave a review. The building has full length vents that can be opened in each room so allow air in without having to have windows fully open. Thank you for your comments and we really hope that you enjoy your stay at The West Tower.

Happy and comfortable

Verified Resident

We’ve been so happy since moving into West Tower. The apartments are of such a high standard and the staff have been so attentive since we’ve moved, helping with lifts etc. Very happy

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

Perfect location. Minutes from Deansgate tram and station. There’s bars and restaurants literally on the door step. The immediate area needs regenerating but that’s come soon too.

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

I wish I’d known about the immediate redevelopment of the area and how it’s going to improve

Great building, very helpful staff working on accommodating all kind of needs

Verified Resident

I love the building. Inside out the tower is stunning. The entrance and reception well decorated by high quality furniture. The floors and corridors are clean, well maintained. Whether staff or neighbors everyone is friendly and polite.

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

Like: location, decoration, quality, standards, furniture and incoming amenities.
Dislike: reception doors(to get to evelators), the glass does noise when closing which seems fragile. Deansgate train station is super close but doesn’t have recurrent trains to go to the airport, which make Oxford road train station is the closest.

Beautiful living. Best place i’ve lived.

Verified Resident

West Tower is a fantastic place to live, they have clearly taken a lot of time to make sure all touchpoints are consistent across the experience. I have lived in some of the best developments in Manchester but nothing comes close to the West Tower.

I can’t wait for the gym/spa to open and can see myself staying for the foreseeable future.

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

Location isn’t great, deansgate locks is very student orientated and that doesn’t match up with the demographics of who live in the west tower, but it’s close enough to the city to not be an issue.

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

I wish I had not moved in so quickly and picked a better view. I am facing an empty piece of land and it’s incredibly noisy at all hours. Drilling happens through the night. Second thing would be that there was no AC in the building, the apartment gets warm very quickly and i’ve had to keep the slit door open everyday since I moved in.

Fantastic Apartment

Verified Resident

The apartment block is fantastic and our apartment is perfect. We recently moved to Manchester with no knowledge of the city and the staff here have been so helpful in addition to being a great place to live in the city.

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

It is walking distance from all the city centre amenities whilst also having both a train and tram stop minutes walk away and so it is in the ideal location

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

Great new building but

Verified Resident

The flats and resident lounge are very nice and modern with a superb quality. Front of desk team is also very friendly and helpful. However, being a new building there are things still not yet place such as request escalation taking awhile to be resolved. Also, there is currently no gym till Q1 2020 however gym membership or subsidised rent has not been provided although offered during initial discussion and viewing.

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

Local amenities are great and the front of desk team is super friendly.

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

All the small details should have been ironed out before moving in. Some flats do not come with all the kitchen equipment. Gym was not included although a discounted membership was mentioned during initial discussions.

Thank you for leaving a review for us. With regards to the rent not being subsidised, I do want to reassure you that all of the rents of the apartments have been reduced/adjusted to take into consideration the fact that the gym/amenities space is not available until next year. With regards to the kitchen equipment – none of the kitchens came with plates/cutlery/toasters etc. is this what you were referring to? If you would like to discuss this with me further, please email me directly on rsm@westtower-deansgatesq.com.
