I just saw your post.... We built with them in 2018 and would not recommend. I could write pages and pages of the issues we had which are still ongoing.
One thing I would say when reading 'reviews' is that many builders have customers sign a contract restricting them from publicly posting about their experience. Builders will threaten legal action if you write a bad review, but they will happily leave the good reviews on site which completely skews the overall rating.
I would go to new housing estates in your area, pick out the houses you like and actually go door knocking.

We also built with them and had nothing but troubles. I have heard more bad reviews then good. Two years in with issue they would never rectify and a leaking roof that came through into our main living last storm. They tried blaming our Ariel guy and I fought it and so far have only got someone to fix the issue on the roof. While they were there the company they use for after handover issues they found short sheets so have had to replace them too. I had many troubles with them. They haven’t been bothered to email me to say they re fixing the issue from the inside yet. I have to constantly email them. They just aren’t good at a quality finish to just keep it short. I built with the, because of the brands they used and the good house layouts. Which I still happy with all of that. Tradesman and sit supervisor not so much. That’s where the issue lie as he hardly visited and checked the trades, quality isn’t the best. Not the worst but just not up to my standard. I found so many issues that I had to tell him about that he never noticed during the built.. Some of those got fixed as they had to, to keep the build flowing but it wasn’t without a fight with my site supervisor each time. Very draining and made it not that exciting to be building new home in the end.
