About this listing
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 (website hidden) 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.
We need to be advised in advance if guests wish to bring friends into the house.
Smoking is permitted in the garden.
Our kitchen is not available for guests to cook their own food as we prepare food every evening for guests and for ourselves.
What a lovely house! Although we didn't get to meet Bob and Christine, their very friendly neighbour welcomed us and instantly made us feel at home. The whole place was clean and beautifully decorated, and breakfast things were out on the table when we got up in the morning. If we come back to Manchester we'll definitely stay here again. Really convenient as on the 143/43 bus route which goes straight into town.
Good place to stay if you have to go to the Manchester Airport really closed. it is a little out of Manchester city center, but we were not interested to visit the city center (btw in 10 minutes walking it is possible to find pub, supermarket and restaurant).
The room is clean and with a lot of space and Bob was friendly and available to give us advises.
Bob and Christine were very welcoming, room was bright airy and very comfortable, had a very relaxing stay, slept really well. Lovely breakfast looking out on to garden, would recommend.
Lovely room and great location. The house is very quiet and overlooked a beautiful garden. Would be an ideal location for a longer visit to Manchester. Great breakfasts too
Our first booking through airbnb. Very happy with accommodation, comfortable and it was as described. Location good. Only stayed one night as en route to Edinburgh.
Bob and his wife are awesome, they are sooo lovely!!
The house is super nice , located in very good area , not far from tram and bus station.
The bedroom is very clean as well as the bathroom.
We also had very good breakfast , love it!!!
A wonderful visit to Manchester. Warmly greeted by Bob and Christine who couldn't have been more gracious and friendly. A lovely room with comfortable bed and modern ensuite overlooking a very pleasant closed garden with a pond. A convenient location to the airport and to the city centre by public transit. Many restaurants and shops within walking distance. One restaurant recommended by Bob and Christine was well worth the experience. Street parking only, but not an issue on a quiet residential street. Wifi available. A special stay with terrific hosts.

About the Host, Bob And Christine
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.
