The flats are nice in general. Maintenance issues are frequent but solved quickly. The staff are rude, and uninterested in helping you. They let other tenants leave the communal areas (hallways, bins etc) in an awful state, broken glass everywhere, it’s dangerous! They also overcharged for bills at the end of the year after claiming they would tell us if we were over spending. Can definitely get something better for cheaper, with landlords who care more about just getting your money. Good location but very noisy!
Nothing like the pictures! Way smaller / more tacky. Cheap in everything but actual price. WiFi terrible, really spotty. Loud all the time, thin walls. Horrific security, had 5 break-ins, only half way through the tenency. Main door easily opened by yanking, it took months to fix. Office isn't near main entrance; only open like four hours weekdays, responses always delayed, stuck with some problems over an entire weekend. Everything bought cheap / ikea basics, could tell it was used. Sofas were weird metal frames with leather cushions attached by velcro belts, difficult to keep clean. Don't give basics like brooms / hoovers, had to buy our own kettles / toasters. Microwave they do give kept breaking then they finally replaced with tacky alternative. Everything built awkwardly, kitchen cupboard doors didn't even fit, I had many cuts trying to open them. Flimsy windows that felt like they would get blown in with some wind. Balcony door even fitted with lock on outside??
Lived at Portland Tower for 2 years in a 6 bed apartment. Its honestly so nice with really big living rooms and modern clean rooms. The Sunrisestar guys are lovely and the building security is fantastic!
Right on West St, so close to all the bars, best location for hosting pre drinks!
On the surface everything looks really nice, however, it’s all cheap coverings. Everything breaks. Multiple flats have been charged for electric faults on their ovens (the faults have not been their faults), flats have been charged for mould (again, not the fault of the tenants). The customer service is disgusting. If you try to complain then they’ll hang up the phone on you. The carrier on charging tenants full price for rent and bills despite no utilities being used as no one was present in the flat. Would not recommend
