The Space The room:
A modern double room with a new comfy bed and fitted furniture, hard wood floor, a fridge with an honesty mini bar. You also have your own digital TV plus DVD player, and we have a few DVDs here if you can’t find anything to watch.
The room is light and airy, and there is some wardrobe space to hang your things up in.
We have high speed wireless internet that you are free to use.
Situated on a quiet, safe suburban street, around 1 minute walk to the bus stop - under 20 minutes into central Manchester. Modern décor inside with the odd retro touch. Full central heating, with a solid fuel stove for cold winter nights.
There's a friendly local pub about 10 minutes walk away, which does good food and has a good range of beers. We also have a few local convenience stores and a chip shop / take way plus an Indian restaurant nearby.
Full use of the kitchen is not available to guests, however you are welcome to bring a takeaway back or use the microwave to heat up a ready-meal.
Guests have their own front door keys, and are welcome to come and go as they please: Please don't feel you need to be in or out at a certain time.
We are a professional male couple working in IT. No children or pets, no smoking in the house. I'm a qualified Barista and make pretty good espresso, my other half is a part time DJ and can talk you to sleep about music.
Manchester has something for everyone - great food and bars, diverse live music, top notch shopping, bags of history, user friendly public transport.
All that as well as 2 of the best football teams on the planet.
Don't listen to the tales of it always raining - we get the same amount of rain as Rome! (but we can lend you a brolly if you need one).
From the airport you have 2 options:
1. We can collect you if we are about (we usually are), we ask you to chip in for parking and fuel (£25) 2. Take the train into the city centre and then the 219 bus to our house.
Into the city it's a short bus ride - about 20 minutes and costs £2.30 single or £4 for a days unlimited bus ticket.
Check in / Check out: We are flexible on times, but we do both work so we might ask you to delay your arrival so we are at home when you arrive (although it's rare we are both out at once). Because we both work we are unlikely to be able to accommodate very late arrivals.
Looking for a single night? Please message me and I'll see what I can do. A small cleaning change applies to one night stays.
We have a second room that would be suitable for a child/third person which is available as an add-on. Please let me know if you would like to use this room as well as the main room.
Not included in the daily rate, but for a small supplement we can also offer:
- Use of the washing machine - Packed lunches - Supper (by arrangement) - A long soak in our very deep bath tub. I'll even run the bath, light the scented candle and add some bubbles!
Our discount policy:
Please let me know if you fall into one of the following (website hidden) Forces: Significant discounts are available to serving members of HM forces. This is our way of saying thank you for doing things most of us would rather not think about.
Job Seekers: If you are coming to Manchester for an interview and have been unemployed we may be able to offer you a cheap night. Everyone needs a hand up sometime.
Extended Stays: We can offer you a cheaper rate for an extended stay of a month or more.
Guest Access What your rate includes:
We know that guests value our low low rates, so we need to keep our costs down to achieve this.
The cost of your stay includes:
- Use of our comfortable, clean spare room, with clean linen and a towel for each guest - A set of door keys to come and go as you please - Your own WC / Basin - A daily shower in the family bathroom - Free simple breakfast of of either croissants or porridge, plus juice/coffee or tea served until 10am - Free Wifi - Free Digital TV
Check in and Check Out times: We both work full time so we might ask you to delay your arrival so we can be sure we are home to welcome you. Unless we have someone else coming the day you leave we are relaexed about check out times, but most guests are keen to get on with their trips are leave by 10am.
Interaction with Guests Depends on the guest: some people like a good chin wag and others are quieter.
We are always available to help, but appreciate you probably didn't come to Manchester to spend your time chatting to us!
The Neighbourhood It's quiet and near to a great bus route to the city centre (we also have the tram but the bus is cheaper and faster).
Getting around 219 bus takes you into the city, fast ans cheap.
Other Things to Note About the bathrooms: we have two - guests have their own basin and WC on one bathroom, but the shower is next door in the family bathroom. The shower in the guest bathroom isn't used.
