“Spareroom Stole my Money!”

Written on: 10/03/2014

I tried to find a room on Spareroom.co.uk but all I got were shady individuals using mobile phone numbers. In the end I found a room using the local newsagent ads. I paid for membership of Spareroom as they have a 100% moneyback guarantee. But when I got to ask for a refund of my £19.99 they refused to give it back to me. I had to ask PayPal to intervene. And so far no refund. To be honest, if somebody won't refund a PayPal transaction then there's something deeply wrong. PayPal vendors… Read Full Review

“Easy to fill our rooms :)”

Written on: 27/11/2013

I thought Spareroom website was very easy to use and to navigate around. It is easy to make and advert and to edit it however you require. The email alerts that are sent are very useful and they have saved me a few minutes if searching myself. The email communications between myself and prospective tenants are quick and easy and secure. We have used spareroom for a few years now and it has always helped us to fill our HMO. I would definitely recommend this website to anyone who needs to fill… Read Full Review

“Using Spareroom.co.uk”

Written on: 27/11/2013

Easy system to use, usually good pictures of room and property. Concise clear layout of what is required by landlord of the lodger and what the lodger gets in return. Easy to contact landlords by either phone or the e-mail facility and usually get a response… Read Full Review

“A very good service ,I use them as they always perform ”

Written on: 27/11/2013

When ever I need a room or have a room available the first company I think of to sort out my advertising is SpareRoom because its straight forward to set up and they do the rest for you.The response rate is very good and if not they help you by getting your advert out correctly to improve your success rate. The price is very reasonable for the service they provide. I have used other companies and the service was not as good as SpareRoom and now I tend just to use them as they are normally the… Read Full Review

“Would definitely recommend ”

Written on: 26/11/2013

I have just found my 3rd lodger thanks to Spareroom. They have been extremely helpful when I have contacted them directly with questions and the information you can get from them, including hints and tips right from first contact, is so useful especially when doing this for the first time. I picked up things I wouldn't have thought of. I like the contact system between those offering rooms and those looking and I found the whole process very user friendly. Can't recommend Spareroom… Read Full Review

“This really worked for me.”

Written on: 25/11/2013

I found a housemate quicker than I expected, and had at least ten enquiries in the first two weeks. It was easy to use and I would definitely use it again. If my current housemate were to move out I would immediately set up a bold ad with Spareroom, as it took all the hassle and worry out of the process. Money well spent… Read Full Review

“My properties are located in Yate which is 13 miles...”

Written on: 25/11/2013

My properties are located in Yate which is 13 miles north of Bristol City. My only quibble is that candidates don't seem to be able to select smaller towns like Yate as a desirable location. Their selection of Bristol includes a large number of towns in the Bristol area. Most would not consider Yate as a potential location to find a rental, but they are referred to you unnecessarily. Some would mention Yate in their text which I could pick up on the search engine otherwise its difficult to… Read Full Review

“Easy to use”

Written on: 24/11/2013

I have just found a flatmate through SpareRoom.co.uk This was the first time I've advertised a room, and I used Spare Room alongside a couple of other classified/flat-to-rent sites. Good points: very easy to use and clear interface so placing the advert was very straightforward. The sits lets you see how many hits your advert gets day by day which is handy. I actually found my eventual flatmate on day 1 - just took a few more days to arrange a visit for him and the others who got in touch. I… Read Full Review

“Great connections!”

Written on: 24/11/2013

I found spareroom.co.uk to be very helpful particularly in narrowing down my search for a flat. There are plenty of categories and search specifics you can enter/choose from. I was informed constantly through my personal email of any new listings that matched my search criteria which is so helpful when you are stretched for time and don't want to be checking the website every hour. As soon as I put my own personal profile up, I had many messages from potential flats and in fact this was how I… Read Full Review

“Easy to use”

Written on: 24/11/2013

The website was easy to use, had a fresh look and was convenient. I especially liked the fact that details remained secure and personal contact numbers were private until you chose to share them. It was easy to upload photographs, receive the free email service and to reply to the emails. It took me around 2 months to secure a lodger for my spare room, but I think that was because I had advertised late in the academic year. The only criticism I can think of is that most of the applicants for… Read Full Review

Also you can use the site to work out the correct market rent for the area… Read Full Review
