Comfortable en-suite room, Didsbury

House - Private room · Sandileigh Avenue, Manchester, M20 3LN, United Kingdom

The Space

Thanks for viewing this.

Our house is situated in Didsbury, one of Manchester's liveliest areas with lots of busy bars restaurants and cafes within a short walk. The house is very close to excellent 24 hour, high frequency bus services to the city centre, universities and hospitals. Didsbury has now been linked up to the city's tram system. We are 3 minutes walk from the West Didsbury tram stop, which connects with the city centre via Chorlton. Although close to local amenities, the street is quiet and does not suffer from traffic noise.

We have three rooms that are listed on Airbnb. Two are large en-suite rooms and there is a smaller room, which is not en-suite but which has an attractive adjacent bathroom. The other rooms are listed under "Dbl Room good access to city centre" and "Large room, good access city centre".

The room you are viewing is large, with plenty of storage space and has a king-sized bed. The room has an en-suite bathroom, equipped with a shower and has recently been decorated. The room is situated at the back of the house and has a large window with a view of the garden.

TV is available in the lounge and wireless broadband is also available. A buffet style breakfast is included consisting of home made breads, cereals, fruit and yoghurt but we are happy to provide traditional cooked breakfast (£4.00 supplement), packed lunches and evening meals by prior arrangment.

You can see from our reviews that many of our guests have enjoyed our evening meals. We like to cook and we have a wide choice of meals that we can offer. All our meals are prepared from good quality fresh ingredients and all our sauces are home made. Ask us what is available if you are interested. Meals can be taken at the breakfast bar or in the dining room.

The house is well located for Manchester Airport, which can be reached by train or bus, and for the universities. Parking is on-street but safe and there is plenty of space.

  • My friend and I stayed for one night in Manchester to visit friends. We had a very lovely stay with Bob and Christine. It was everything that is great about air bnb. Personable and staying in a real home. We had a delightful, long and delicious breakfast in the morning and enjoyed having a chat with the friendly and down to earth hosts. Thanks for a lovely stay. We wish you two the best. Cheers. Maria

  • I was only in Manchester for one night and chose Didsbury on my sons advice. Christine & Bob's home was a perfect choice. Easy to get to, great transport links but also in a quiet street. I had a Bit of a flying visit but they were very flexible and happy to accommodate my every need. Lovely room with large ensuite shower room and comfy bed. I didn't have the home cooked evening meal with them but it smelt delicious. Breakfast was plentiful. A friendly and welcoming couple with a home from home. Highly recommended.

    Response from Bob And Christine:

    Thanks for a very kind review. I agree with your comment about the early morning tea. We usually show guests where the tea things are kept when we offer them a cup of tea during check-in. In your case, we forgot to mention tea making when you returned to the house early evening. Sorry about that. I hope it did not detract too much from the enjoyment of your stay. I will try to do better if you make a return visit.

  • We had a wonderful time at Bob and Christine's house. The hosts were lovely, the room are nice and clean and the breakfast was excellent too! We'd definitely go back there if we are coming back to Manchester.

  • Our friends stayed in this room, and they were really impressed with the room, facilities etc. They will definitely go back again.

    November 2013
  • Very hospitable people, great accommodation, and lovely breakfast.

    November 2013
  • We had a very enjoyable stay at Bob and Christine's. They were really good about answering any queries before we arrived and the room was great; clean, large and quiet. Breakfast was good too; delicious home made drop scones, really good jams and spreads and some good (all positive) conversation regarding being airbnb hosts!. We would hope to stay there again when next we visit our uni daughter. Thanks for a good, comfortable night.

I retired early (4 years ago) from a professional role in order to spend more time with my camera. The camera bit didn't really work out as I spend most of my time keeping house and looking after our wonderful guests. Christine works in admin. We live in a largish Edwardian semi. We are a very sociable couple and we enjoy the social life in our community. When she is not out at work Christine is the nice one who makes cakes, bakes bread and makes our guests feel relaxed and welcome. I do most of the meeting and greeting, preparing our guest rooms, fixing breakfasts, researching local information and all the other little bits and pieces that help to make your stay memorable and enjoyable. We both love cooking (and eating) and we enjoy preparing food for, and dining with, our guests. We try to remove processed foods from our diet as much as possible and we follow the same ethos when catering for our guests. Most of the foodstuffs we use for breakfast are home made. The meals that we provide in the evening are all cooked from fresh ingredients. Guests seem to enjoy our house. Our house is clean but It is certainly not the tidiest house you will have seen. There are usually a few bits of clutter lying around. Books, newspapers and grandchildren's art work are often sprinkled around the place. I always tell Christine that a bit of clutter adds atmosphere to a home. She doesn't always agree.
