Hi, I'm Jez, I'm an artist ((website hidden)) living in Old Trafford, Manchester UK, where I live with my husband David and our dog Stanley.
I had the warmest welcome by David and Jez, and especially by Stanley. I was made to feel very much at home, it really felt like staying with friends! The house is lovely, and full of art, books and music. Jez and David both are very much in connected with the culture of Manchester and this adds so much more value to having them as hosts.
The neighbourhood is quiet, so nothing to disturb your sleep, and yet the tram to the city is just 2 minutes walk, and the journey about 10-15 minutes to the centre.
The bedroom is just right and the bed very comfy. I'll be back!
I couldn't have asked for a better place to stay in Manchester. Jez and David (along with Stanley) were very warm and helpful, and always ready to help. The room was clean and tidy, and the estate was peaceful and quiet, away from the bustle of the city centre without being too far off. Speaking of which, the property is a few minutes walk from the Metrolink Station AKA Tram (which brings you to Picadilly, the city centre, in less than 10 minutes), as well as being close by the bus stop if you wish to go to Trafford Centre. The property is also conveniently located a 5 minute walk from a supermarket, pharmacy and small eateries. It is also within 15 minutes of Old Trafford Stadium. If I were to come back to Manchester, I would stay with Jez again. =)
I cannot recommend Jez Dolan enough. Both Jez and David were more than lovely and I had the best time staying with them and their amazing dog Stanley. I'm actually a bit scared of dogs and Stanley is just the best dog ever - including his tricks!
The house is perfect - spacious dining room to eat, massive kitchen and breakfast was always out to have at whatever time worked for me! No problems with the wifi and the shower is great too.
The best thing about this accommodation however, has to be Jez and David. They are perfect hosts and always willing to sit around with wine and have a catch up and a gossip - I will definitely be back whenever I next in Manchester!
The street is quiet - no noises waking me up and the room is a spacious double with a cosy bed and nice cushions. I left my car on the street for the two weeks I was there and it was a two minute walk (if that!) to Trafford Bar metro station.
It cost me £16 for a weekly travel-card to get in and out of the City Centre - only three stops to St. Peter's Square so it was perfect!
I have stayed here twice so please see my other review! xx
Jez is a really good host and I felt very welcome in the house. It was the perfect place for me and I was absolutely satisfied, would definitely stay there again.
I spent a fabulous two weeks with Jez and David (and Stanley!) while doing research in Manchester and Salford. Jez and David could not have been more hospitable, and are genuinely informed about every cultural event happening in the area, as well as having all sorts of interesting suggestions for things to do. The room is bright and airy, and overlooks the garden so there's no street noise whatsoever. The tram stop is also just down the road, so you can be in the city centre in less than 15 minutes. Highly recommended!
Jez and David are wonderful hosts and the house is great! It's comfortable, really clean and very close to a tram station. I thoroughly recommend staying here! It was a pleasure to meet you, Jez.
Jez and Dave are very nice hosts and help me a lot. When I came and left, Jez help me lift my heavy baggage up and down. The room is so clean and nice. During the nice days we shared the classic and rock music, also enjoyed the cooking each others. At night, they told me a lot about the guidance of Manchester city and the culture. I feel very comfortable when stay with them. Highly recommend!
Jez and David are wonderful hosts. They've been super kind to me - it felt like home! - and the house is amazing. I've had the best of times in Manchester and they are definitely responsible for that...
Enjoyed celebrating my birthday with Jez. He made my second stay just as wonderful as the first,Wouldn't stay anywhere else. Only sorry I missed David on my second visit.
Jez and his family were great guests. We would be happy to have them visit us again.
