I loved my house with Bill Free. It was always warm and felt homely from the day we moved in! Their repairs team were 1st class! It wasn't often we had any issues but when we did they were fixed within a couple of days of reporting them online! Thanks for a great year :)

I lived with BFH for about a year in their city-centre location and their service was absolutely PERFECT! The studio which I lived was well equipped considering us (students) requirements. It had everything from pots and pans to hover and mop. And as the name suggests, yes, they have all bills included in their rent. This helps a lot if you are trying to be less stressful about paying 10's of different bills. Loved them!
