What renters love about Clippers Quay
"The development itself is great. I think that the building has been developed to a high standard – it has excellent features and the design is modern and clean. The facilities within the development are excellent, in particular the gym and the downstairs ‘common area’ are definite selling points when it comes to these flats. The staff that work at the development are incredibly welcoming and helpful, in particular Paris and Jacob who will provide advice / help with anything, without hesitation. The property management team that run the development remain supportive and involved, which is a big plus. I find it a shame that these flats are only available to rent, and not for sale as I think they would be a good investment opportunity."
"People working there are the nicest, v helpful and super friendly. The location is great (can be v. quite most of the time tho). Transports to and from the city are easy and quick. Gym is great (for taking pictures) and the working space gets u productive.:
"The building, design and even furnishing done in CQ is brilliant. Accompanying this the team from start to finish have been easy and pleasant to deal with. From the first viewing to signing the tenancy to now with any issues which may occur whilst living here all the staff members have done their very best to make it as peaceful as possible. Nothing but good things to say about the whole development!"
