“Avoid!”

Written on: 16/01/2016 by SeeingRed213 (1 review written)

I posted a 'room to let' ad on another site and emailed a few people to offer them my room, next thing I received a text from someone posing as one of the people I had contacted, saying they had found somewhere and that I should try Flatmaterooms. So, I posted an ad on Flatmaterooms and within a day received an email about the room, the thing is though, you can't read emails unless you pay. So, I paid £15 to upgrade my membership, emailed the person back and of course they mysteriously… Read Full Review

I agree, I paid £25 and all ads were very old after over 6 weeks I didn't get ONE potential flatmate. Spareroom is much, much better and has a phone number where you can talk to a person!!
. Even Gumtree - which is free is better than flatmate Rooms.

Written on: 28/05/2016

I have had the same experience, I was contacted by them via text. I paid 20 odd pounds to register, I have been sent absolute rubbish in daily alerts, the same people over and over again who live hundreds of miles away from where the room is available, totally unsuitable, not even looking in my area and they are the same 2 people they keepi sending! When I look at the people they have not been on line for weeks. I am contacting trading standards, anyone want to join me!!

“Effective and got a decent bedsit”

Written on: 23/10/2015 by Biggamer (1 review written)

I was a member for about 2 weeks. But found it hard at first but it got easier when I placed a room wanted advert. It must of made landlords trust me more. I viewed 3 places and then a bedsit was listed and this was great for what I needed. I would say the site is good and has a good search page. I didn't do a room wanted advert first but soon realised its best to have one. Felt a bit like a dating site but it did the job I wanted. They also sent my a link to there advice centre and pointed out… Read Full Review

“Spam Marketing by texting mobile Nrs they gather in...”

Written on: 16/10/2015 by Kirk33 (1 review written)

The owners of this site seem to agree that Spam Marketing by texting mobile Numbers they gather from "search adverts" is OK. I tend to disagree this is good practice, also being annoyed by their texts - hence this review. Not getting caught doesn't mean it doesn't back fire. Best of luck … Read Full Review

“Dont waste your money or TIME ”

Written on: 19/05/2015 by Evangeline216 (1 review written)

This might be a good website if you live in London or Manchester .. But for smaller places like Lichfield where i live its a joke. No users or fictious users are created to send you messages and when you pay to upgrade they always miraculously stop responding or disappear. SPAREROOM Is my preferred choice even above easy roommate … Read Full Review

“Rent a room without the hassle ”

Written on: 12/02/2015 by Lawrenceap1993 (1 review written)

This site is very easy to place an ad in and very easy to reply to potential tenants. Also I like the fact that you get regular updates about who has been looking at your advert and you are alerted to a response to your advert by e-mail. I think the offer of a free month of advertising if you don't get a tenant in one month is great. I have never had to advertise for more than a month to get a tenant… Read Full Review

“Spareroom is king”

Written on: 06/12/2014

Best advice I can give, is flush any money you intend to spend on that website (flatmate rooms) down the toilet. You'll get some satisfaction, which you won't get from this poor site . The tennants that have found places seem live ads until you've paid and contacted them to realise they're no longer looking and have found places. I would give it 0/5 Landlords stay away!!… Read Full Review

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

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

“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

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
