What our residents say

Don’t just take it from us,
see what some of our residents think about
living at our locations on  Homeviews.

The roof terrace is a dream; it is a lovely space to relax. The gym is great quality and well maintained. The communal lounge is a nice social area to meet neighbours. The building is fantastic and so perfectly put together, I have loved every minute of living here.

Oscar, Box Makers Yard

The design of the building is beautiful, and everything has been carefully considered to make living easy. The gym is great and we love the communal facilities, especially when working from home. The management are great and very quick to respond to any queries or problems.

Rebecca C, Box Makers Yard

The community around here is great. Just at the back of the apartment block you have Old Market, which is full of small, independents­ cafes, bars, eateries and retailers. Temple Meads train station is a 2-minute walk away, as well as bus stops. The area/street itself is quiet, even though it's in the city centre which is nice.

Mitch, Box Makers Yard

In comparison to other rental places it's a lot more professional. The staff are really lovely.

Georgia, The Whitmore Collection, Birmingham

Once you walk in and see the quality of the apartments and what you get, I think it's a no brainer.
