I have lived in different rented flats in Manchester and I have to say that the slate yard is just the best.
It is a very nice place that is located next to the calm Irwell river (I always sit on the sofa and stare at the river! It makes me really calm and the sofa is way too comfy!) We’ve got 24/7 security and the staff and neighbours are so friendly and helpful. The design is simple and good, which is my ideal interior design style. Gym is also provided and the maintenance team is the best! When something went wrong, they just come and fix them as soon as possible every time. Lastly, the common area is soooo good!!! I really love the style that I can both work and relax there.
The only cons is traffic. It should be the reason of this is a new developed zone so the buses are not fully developed (I mean the variety of bus routes), but there’s a train station next to us.
In large, everything’s good and it’s so convenient to buy food and hang out. It’s a very good experience to live in there
Please tell us what you like and dislike about this area:
Good location that I can walk to Selfridges and good variety of restaurants around here. Marks and Spencer’s and coop are just 5 minutes walk from the slate yard. But traffic is still a problem. Traffic jams in peak hours as one of the highway entrances is jus next to us. And if there’s more buses to the Chinatown, the university, Piccadilly and salford would be way better.
Please share one thing (or more) which you wish you had known before you moved in:
None. Here’s just perfect for me.
