“Impressed!!”

Written on: 02/10/2014 by sfMarshall100 (1 review written)

I'm used to finding places in the local pape but these days theres nothing in there so a friend recommended Flatmaterooms.I thought it was simple to use even for me, the adverts showed the map and google street view so i could easily see the right area i wanted to live. The website provides some good advice to keep u safe too. I managed to find somewhere temporary for a month in a pleasent area… Read Full Review

I got no results but stll spent 20 pounds. Don't bother opening an account when you can't pay you won't be able to do anything. Other free websites are far better. Those ads are just fictionarry on on that website… Read Full Review

“Swish but no users”

Written on: 05/06/2014 by Dohertybb159 (1 review written)

I really like the design of the website, but there just aren't enough users to make it worth the money. I arranged zero viewings via this site as compared to 6 on spareroom. I threw away £20… Read Full Review

I was recommended to use flatmate rooms by a friend as they had good luck finding a room to rent. There are so many sites out their and felt i could trust this one, they have a very welcoming website.Communication on the site was great and had a couple of questions which were answered quickly. All in all i would definitely use and recommended them… Read Full Review

In order to read messages you have to pay. The minimum amount is £15 for 10 days. Other sites out there are free, and as a landlady I have got more interest from the free sites… Read Full Review

“amazing customer support, and found a flatmate in 4 days!”

Written on: 24/06/2013

After paying for a 20 day membership (which is cheaper than other sites, which only offer 10 or 30 days memberships), I found a nice flatmate in just 4 days! I was very pleased about this, as it can be a long, tiresome and time consuming process. The best part was that I asked them to pause my membership so I would not lose the remaining days, and they responded extremely fast and were understanding and paused it. I was very happy with the customer support (Gareth in my case), and I will… Read Full Review

“Room to Rent the perfect solution!”

Written on: 16/04/2013

Flat Mate Rooms are a friendly efficient way to find your ideal flatmate/lodger. Gareth the Manager is always helpful and the coverage of people looking for flats is good too. Several times now, I have found lodgers through this site. After trying other similar sites, I would say this is by far the best one for prospect lodgers and folks with rooms to rent, to get together… Read Full Review

Written on: 11/04/2013 by loulou85 (1 review written)

I spent £20 advertising my spare room, The advert has been up nearly a month & not one single message, phone call or reply to any of my messages...so i rang the company flat room mate & spoke to one of the co owner's who was very vague & un-helpful & said i can have some more membership days, why would i want more membership days when the site has not delivered in the first place, disapointed & may aswell hae thrown my money down the toilet!!… Read Full Review

Hi,
Your advert was displayed for 16 days and unfortunately didn't gain any traction.

Like I said on the phone it is important to upload pictures of the room and property in order to rent out your room. Without any pictures you can't really expect enquiries as the tenants don't have enough information to make their call.

Also looking at your account you didn't send any messages contacting flatmates looking in your area on our website, maybe that was another one.

If you would like to renew your advert, I am happy to help out.

Kind regards,
Co-founder

“Use this site for a good choice of tenants ”

Written on: 28/03/2013

I must say it was extremely useful to be familiar with a site like this when looking for a new tenant. It was not long before I found someone who fitted the bill and then contacted them to register interest. After that for a perfectly reasonable fee we were able to have full contact details in order to come to an agreement and settle the deal… Read Full Review

“Helpful”

Written on: 28/03/2013

I recently found a room for my friend coming from abroad. Sent payments and heard nothing back from seller. I emailed FlatMate Rooms and got a reply pretty quickly from a guy named Gareth. He helped me out loads and everything got sorted, my friend is now happy in her new room. Fantastic customer service. Site easy to use and to contact potential sellers. Overall a great experience… Read Full Review

“Wish I'd stuck with Gumtree or Spare Room”

Written on: 17/08/2012 by Sapphire100 (2 reviews written)

I paid for an ad but got no response at all. Admittedly was advertising a room in a harder to let area. I was running ads in Gumtree & Spare Room at the same time. The room is now let from a Gumtree response. I also had enquiries from Spare Room but nothing from Flatmate rooms. For me it was a waste of money. However the site looked good & there is potential to improve it… Read Full Review

“Waste of time”

Written on: 01/12/2011 by Boot1e (1 review written)

If you are looking to pay to advertise, it may be worthwhile but if you are looking to advertise for free, don't waste your time. You are not allowed to put any contact details in the free ad so all you get is messages from non premium members which you are not allowed to read until you become a premium member at a cost. Save your time and advertise on Gumtree or one of the other free sites… Read Full Review

Written on: 28/08/2009 by Sleepyjoe (3 reviews written)

I was recently looking to rent a room and came across Flat Mate Rooms, I found their service to be fantastic, all you do is upload your advert free then contact tenants or wait for them to contact you, I opted to pay for upgraded membership for only £10 for 30 days which gave me more exposure and other benefits, overall I was happy, I now have an extra £400 a month coming in and a great lodger… Read Full Review
