 Customer feedback


Fantastic all round. Very happy with the work, great communication, lovely people, suggested ideas and styles that would work for me and the space, very clear on costs with itemised quotes and invoices, turned up when they said they would, very tidy in what was messy work, cleaned up, can’t recommend enough. A complete all round customer focused excellent service who I’m very happy I found and can call friends. Thank you Ishtar, Abdul and Mic, pleasure to have you round and working with you

Ancora did a complete overhaul of my bathroom. Ripped out everything, reskimmed, tiled the walls and floor, painted and installed a completely new bathroom suite. I asked them to redecorate the stairs and landing too, which was carried out at the same time. Ishtar was great in the planning process and communicated really clearly throughout the project. Abdul and Mick are professional workmen and carried out the work to a high standard and respected my house, worked in line with COVID guidelines and were considerate to any working from home that was happening. Wouldn't hesitate in hiring them again for other works.

Ancora Renovate recently did a full renovation of our bathroom. Throughout the job they offered loads of advice and information about what the best options would be. We had no idea where to start but they helped us plan and scope out the space. Helped us figure out what to order and generally put our minds at ease. Our bathroom is tiny and had a large shower in it but they reconfigured the plan to fit a bath in!! I was really impressed with this process, Ishtar the project manager sent a few different options over for us and also came over to tape ip the space so that we could see what it would look like. This was brilliant and helped us avoid buying a sink that ultimately wouldn't have fit the space well. Mick the trades person who came to do that work was lovely, he was really friendly and informative and kept asking us our opinion about different aspects of the job. His attention to detail was great and it was obvious that he was doing the work to the highest quality possible. His problem solving skills were fab and we managed to get a really beautiful finish because of his recommendations. The final job is stunning, you wouldn't know it was the same room! I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this company and I will be using them for all of our jobs in the future. It's always hard to determine a reliable, trustworthy trades company but this is definitely one!

Fantastic work on my kitchen. Things left in a mess by a previous builder were fixed, I was kept informed throughout the whole renovation process, and the work was carried out professionally and to a really high quality standard. Both Abdul and Mic did a brilliant job and I couldn’t be happier with the work.


100% recommend Ancora if anyone is looking to do any renovation work done. Brilliant company, honest, professional, high quality work. 5*

Thank you for making my kitchen beautiful!

Very organised and responsive. Listens to your requirements and ensure they're met. Working with Ishtar, Abdul and their team was easy. So easy they're doing some more work for us and I have already recommended them to a neighbour.

Highly recommend.

It is with pleasure that I recommend Ancora Renovate. They completed some work for me at the beginning of the year. It was a combination of fitting a new door, plastering, taking asbestos from the roof, painting and adding a handrail to the stairs so lots of odd jobs. The level of professionalism was incredible. I was working away from home at the time and Ishtar project managed with an "over and above" service. She kept me up to date each step of the way by email and let me know of any extra or hidden costs before work started. The work was of a great standardcand they worked around a timescale that suited everyone. The whole team were fantastic from start to finish. I will definitely use them again. Thank you Ishtar and your team.
