Home from home with good facilities....

Response from Management
Hello Cathy, thank you so much for taking the time to leave a review! We really appreciate the feedback :) We're super pleased you had a peaceful stay and you enjoyed using the shared spaces! We're sorry it was a bit warm for you, the heating in the rooms can always be turned down but we appreciate it's not immediately obvious how to use the radiators. So should you stay with us again, please don't hesitate to ask any of the host team how to use any appliance and we're always more than happy to help. We want our guests feel as comfortable as possible. We hope to welcome you back again soon! Best Wishes, James & The Team :)

In summary, a great stay thanks!...

Positive: The location and comfortable spacious room. Negative: Some people may find it a bit difficult access as it’s a heritage building but fine with us.
Response from Management
Hello Alice, thank you so much for taking the time to leave us such a positive review! We really appreciate the feedback :) We're so delighted to hear your stay was comfortable, the room was spacious for you and that the location was convenient for you to explore Manchester. And yes, we are a Grade II listed building so some of the original features renders some parts of the building less accessible but we have made one area of the building totally step free and offer accessible rooms in there so that we can welcome guests of all abilities :) We hope to welcome you back again soon! Best Wishes, James & The Team

Hi Rebecca, Thank you for the review and score! I'm so pleased you enjoyed your stay and loved the location and decor. All the bowls and plates are safe for the microwave, tried and tested by our team and many guests. The dish cloth should have been in the cupboard under the sink, but I am very sorry if that was missed by our house keeping team, and I will pick it up with them. Best wishes, Grace
