Hey Hatulim, Wow what a glowing review! Thank you so much for taking the time to leave us some feedback and for such great scores! I'm so pleased to hear what a wonderful stay you had and that you managed to take advantage of everything we have to offer here at Whitworth such as our central location and fully equipped kitchen and apartment! I do apologise for the issues you had with the muted lighting. Our designers did opt for lower lighting to create a cosy more intimate atmosphere, however we do understand this is not to everyone's tastes. For next time, we are always more than happy to provide extra lamps at reception on request :) We would love to welcome you back to Whitworth Locke very soon! All the best, Alana & the House Host Team

Hey Gunta, Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review and for such detailed feedback, this is incredibly helpful for us. I'm very pleased to hear that overall you enjoyed your stay and being a frequent guest with us I'm so glad we achieved this sense of being a home away from home - this is our ultimate goal! I do apologise for the unusual circumstances you experienced with us this time. Unfortunately the neighbouring guests had indeed left their dog in their apartment alone which is against Whitworth Locke House Rules and was thankfully speedily rectified however I apologise for the disturbance. Apologies for the delay with the toaster and extra towel also, I will speak to our housekeeping manager and see what we can about speeding up communication when it is busy at check out time/breakfast time in the mornings. Hopefully we can welcome you back to Whitworth Locke for yet another visit and have another chance to impress you even more! Until then, all the best, Alana & the House Host Team

I'm thrilled to hear that Locke for you was a little haven away from home, this is exactly the aim we strive for! That's great too that you managed to take advantage o the fully equipped kitchen, however I do apologise for the low lighting. Our designers did opt for muted lighting to give a cosy more intimate atmosphere, however we do understand this is not to everyone's taste. For next time if you do need some additional lamp we are very happy to provide some on request! We hope to welcome you back very soon! Alana & the House Host Team

The Manchester City Visitor Charge is a small fee of £1 + VAT per room or unit per night that is added to the final bill for guests staying in paid accommodation within the Manchester ABID zone.

By paying this charge, you'll be contributing to the enhancement of the overall guest experience and helping to expand the city's visitor economy.

The City Visitor Charge is similar to established schemes in cities across Europe and North America and will be chargeable from 1st April 2023. So, if you book a stay at Whitworth Locke, Manchester after this date, you will need to pay this small fee per night as part of your final bill.
