NB This apartment is on the first floor above ground floor, without a lift, so may not be suitable if you have special mobility/access requirements.
[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!
C'était la deuxième fois que nous venions à Manchester dans l'appartement de Tom et nous avons passé une très bonne semaine !
L'appartement est très agréable et très propre, cuisine bien équipée, une grande pièce à vivre.
Le contact avec Tom avant et pendant le séjour était très bien, réponse très rapide, flexibilité, etc.
Nous n'hésiterons pas à revenir dans cet appartement que je recommande chaleureusement si vous souhaitez passer un agréable séjour à Manchester!
Thanks Louise! Hope to see you in Manchester again! Here's a translation for non-French speakers:
It was the second time we stayed in Manchester in Tom 's apartment and we had a great week ! The apartment is very nice, very clean , well equipped kitchen, a large living room . Contact with Tom before and during the stay was very good, very fast response , flexibility, etc. We will not hesitate to return to this apartment I highly recommend if you want a pleasant stay in Manchester !
Tom was incredibly helpful and the apartment was very nice and as advertised. It was fully stocked with toiletries and he even had bread, milk, tea, and soft drinks in the fridge for me. I had to come a day early due to weather issues and he was quick to accommodate the change, have the place clean and ready for me. He was also always available via text and phone for whatever was needed. Thanks!
This was the 2nd time I stayed at Tom's apartment which speaks volumes about my stay the 1st time! I booked at late notice on both occasions and Tom was more than happy to help out.
The accommodation is clean and tidy and I was welcomed by Tom's Mum with the keys and she was really helpful in any questions I had and that's exactly what I need when I'm on a work trip!
I'd highly recommend a stay at Tom's place in Manchester!
This was my first experience of Airbnb, and I have to say that I am a convert. Tom was fantastic and I would strongly recommend this flat to anyone looking for somewhere comfortable and convenient to stay in Manchester.
Tom was really flexible beforehand around arrival times and leaving times and the instructions of how to get there were crystal clear.
The flat itself was perfect, just as described and really convenient for the event we were attending at the Royal Northern College of Music and only a 15-minute walk from the city centre. The flat had all the conveniences we needed and we really appreciated Tom providing the wherewithal to make tea and toast when we arrived.
My host was extremely accommodating and they waited for my arrival and showed me around. The flat was extremely tidy, and there were refreshments available. The location was ideal as it is only a 7-8 minute walk to town centre, and it is a quiet area (surprising with so many students around!) I would have no hesitation to recommend this to anyone wanting to stay near all the amenities Manchester offers, and it is very fairly priced. The parking space was an added bonus as I had an exhibition stand in my boot.
We had a great stay, and Tom was both welcoming and helpfull in every way. The flat had everything we needed and the location was great as well. We hope to come back
Fantastic place! The attention to detail was great, from nice toiletries to cab numbers and city guides a plenty. I would thoroughly recommend staying at Tom's place. He was very helpful in offering advice before our stay as well. All of my friends enjoyed too. Great location and so easy to walk round to all the main bars, shops and restaurants that Manchester has to offer!

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!
