Q&A


Q
Hello, is there any parking available?

Hello there, 

Thank you for taking the time to get in touch with us here at Granary Studios 

Unfortunately, we do not offer parking on site. However, you may be able to purchase a parking permit from the council for Market Street Car Park which gives maximum security for you. The council offers a 35% discount on these permits and with Market Street Car Park being 3 minutes walk from Granary, you really couldnt get any closer :-) 

Hope this helps 

Kind Regards 

Claire 

General Manager 

Q

Hello, yes Granary Studios is very nearly finished, scaffolding has come down and it’s already booking up! Just touching up finishing touches I think!

Thank you so much for taking the time to leave a review and we are so glad that you enjoyed your time here with us at Granary Studios. We completely agree with you that Granary is a quiet building, however with our ideal central location, the City centre and bars & restaurants are only a stones throw away and perfect walking distance.

It has been a great experience but a shame the COVID has disrupted the social aspect as this accommodation is all studios. Ideal location in Chester to both local amenities and campus

Thank you for your kind words and the team here at Granary Studios could not agree more.

We love nothing more than organising and hosting social events to get to know our residents and for our residents to get to know each other, however, unfortunately this has not been as possible this past year as we would like. We have to abide by Government Guidelines that have been set for us, until it is safe for us all to socialise together again.

We like you, have missed the social aspect, however, as rules changed during the pandemic, so did we. We adapted with the rules and created many virtual events for our residents to take part in, which we realise is not the same, however we hope that you were able to take part

So glad to see that you enjoyed living with us at Granary Studios and again, our proximity to the city centre is incredibly convenient. Also, with us only being a ten minute walk from the three University Campuses, Granary really is ideally located for all of your needs. 

 

Our resident teams prides itself as being there for each and every resident and we are there to help at every stage of this journey with you all

We are so glad that you like your room at Granary, so much so, you compared it to paradise....WOW

We do have larger size studios, for example our Deluxe and Gold studios that are ideal for dual occupancy should this be something that you would be interested in :-)

Unfortunately, it's such a shame the place was NOT BUILT LAST YEAR!!!! Would have much prefered living here last year than another student accommodation not far from this place. I am only 2 weeks in, however, I have never felt happier in my life, the residents are absolutely amazing people, AND so are the staff not a bad word to say about anyone or anything, Thank you to Claire and Lorna for making me feel so welcomed. I would 100% recommend this place!! I am currently in a Gold Studio by myself and I couldn't have picked a better studio (even though they are all great). Will definitely be staying here for the rest of my university life! Granary Studios stands by its motto "Fresh Start with Fresh!"

We are sorry to read that your first experience was not what you wanted, however, we are so glad to read that Granary Studios retsored your faith in student accommodation and has provided your with a happier life. 

With the building being slightly smaller in size, we are really able to create a warm and social environment for all of our residents and year on year, residents get to know each other well in Granary. 

Thank you for your very kind words

What can I say? This is an absolutely lovely place to live. We're a week in now and me and my girlfriend have moved into a Deluxe studio and its amazing! The space, the view, the appliances is all just fantastic. Storage is everywhere and never short of it, the rooms are brand new and modern! It has an amazing, cosy social space which is where the Manager, Claire, and staff member, Lorna, held a big welcome party for those that moved in, where we played some games, eat pizza, cakes, sweets, chocolate... you name it, and had a good chat and a laugh so we all got to knew each other! Overall, what an amazing place to live! We have only lived in one other location beforehand and this is definitely the best decision we made :)

Thank you very much for your lovely words about the building, your room choice and the team at Granary Studios. 

We love to organise social events as we want to get to know you all as much as we want our residents to get to know each other. Unfortunately during COVID, we have not been able to do as many face to face social events, however, as the restrictions continue to release, we aim to make the most of this and start to organise social events to be remembered!!

Lovely place, me and my boyfriend have just moved into a deluxe studio and it’s big and spacious and the best studios I have seen in Chester! The manager and staff Lorna are lovely & they threw us a lovely welcome party with pizza to get to know the other students that moved in as well! It was a quick and easy way to get to know each other! All round Granary is the best place so far as there was a problem discovered with my phone in my room and the electrician was called the next day! I cannot say thank you enough.

Our deluxe studios certainly are big and spacious... with 29sqm of space, there really is enough space to bring the kitchen sink when you move in. Not that you need to as our studios are furnished to a high standard. 

We endeavur to resolve any mainteance issues quick and efficiently as we would not want any of our residents to be without any services.

I can't recommend this place enough and it isn't even built yet! Claire the onsite manager is truly amazing, she is there for us with anything and we haven't even moved in yet. I truly cannot wait to move in, in September. Claire helped me and my boyfriend secure the deluxe studio we wanted and went out of her way to get us a hard hat and boots to show us our new room. The social events they will be holding will be amazing including freebie friday, pizza night and more! This place already feels like home to us and we aren't even there yet! please if you have change go and check it out, you will not regret this! So so happy to say i will be living there in September and cannot thank Claire enough for all the help.

What great words you have shared, especially considering at the time, the building had not been finished at the time of viewing. We do miss wearing those hard hats and safety boots to walk around Granary to showcase what we were going to be able to offer 

Our social events calendar has somewhat changed over the last 18 months, however, please watch this space because the events of the past are coming back, bigger and bolder than before.
