[Please note, I do have one cancelled reservation on my feedback, and this is because I had already offered someone a fixed price for a second stay via AirBnb, but despite sending this provisional link and allowing a period of time to arrange payment, an Instant Booking was still allowed to be made by a second guest. I've since disabled Instant Booking to prevent this happening again
Also - my response rate is more like 100% than 83%+ - I have been on holiday a couple of times without internet and been unable to respond quickly, but always do reply!!]
Minimum 2 night stay normally, but send me an enquiry for mid-week stays, particularly for Champions League matches and I will see what I can do.
Proof of ID of person making booking required on key handover.
No smoking in building, communal areas or apartment block grounds - this includes no smoking leaning out of windows!
Car must be parked in allocated spot or it may be clamped.
No pets allowed.
No loud music - please respect the neighbours.
Remember to lock the apartment door behind you - it does not automatically lock!
The flat is really nice and practical, and the location is convenient. Tom was easy to contact, really helpful and did everything to make our stay easier.
This accommodation offers a good value for money and I highly recommend it.
Everything about our stay was perfect! Tom was very easy to contact, we communicated before my arrival a couple of times and there were no problems. His mum gave us the flat keys and explained how everything work, a lovely lady who offered help at all times. The flat was exactly as advertised and Tom even left some tea, milk coffee for us. Location is excellent as there is a bus stop just across the street. Overall..perfect!!! Thank you Tom for a wonderful stay in Manchester. :)
Tom's mom gave us a tour of the apartment and advice for the area. The apartment was in fair condition and in a decent location not far from the Oxford Station and we appreciated the high speed internet and milk and bread in the fridge. No significant issues once we figured out how to turn on the light in the bathroom (pull the cord!).
I highly recommend Tom’s apartment. The apartment is well located and really accommodating. Tom and is mother were really helpful in arranging everything for our arrival. I will certainly book the apartment again for next time!
Gracias Tom por compartir tu casa con nosotros. Hemos estado muy muy bien. Es un alojamiento tranquilo, cómodo y muy limpio.
El anfitrión muy atento, nos dejó los ingredientes para los desayunos y nos dio todo tipo de facilidades para hacer la estancia más agradable. La situación de la vivienda es ideal para acercarse al centro o a la Universidad. Ha sido un acierto alojarnos en Large Apt y se la recomendaré a todas las personas que quieran ir a Manchester. Yo por supuesto repetiría encantada.
Thanks Elda! Here's a rough internet-site translation: "Thank you Tom for sharing your home with us. We have been very very well. It is a quiet, comfortable and very clean. Very friendly host, left us with the ingredients for breakfast, lunch and gave us all kinds of facilities to make the stay more enjoyable. The housing situation is ideal to get closer to the Centre or to the University. A success has been by staying in Large Apt and will recommend to all the people who want to go to Manchester. I repeat of course delighted."
Already living in Manchester but decided to stay closer to town whilst my friends were visiting and this is a wonderful flat! Brilliant facilities and an excellent location to venture into Manchester too explore everything that is on offer! Would definitely recommend to anybody visiting!
We had a lovely time in what was a very clean, modern, warm and well maintained apartment. The hosts were also very easy to deal with
I'm a 32yo techie, born and living in Manchester, half-Chinese/half-English despite being paler than most Eurasians! An IT graduate, but now running a Home Care Agency looking after Older People in their own homes.
I couldn't live without my phone, a tv or my car!
With me as your host, you've got someone reliable and close at hand for any problems. I know Manchester inside & out, so if you're after a place to eat, drink, pamper yourself, play golf, watch football etc I'm your man. I'll be honest and up-front with you, tell you the pubs to go and the pubs to avoid, and even tell you the secret little places that I enjoy. I'm a bit of a foodie, so sharing these places with visitors is great, in the hope that you'll come back to visit Manchester in the future!
