Great place, great facilities. Needs...

Response from Management
Hi Cheryl, Thank you for providing feedback for us, we really appreciate it. I'm so glad you loved the design of the apartment and felt it was roomy enough for you! Very sorry about how hot it was, once a year Manchester gets hot so we never normally have use for air conditioning, but if available at the time we are more than happy to bring an extra fan to the room. Best wishes Grace
