Thank you for kind review: it was a pleasure to host your stay in Manchester and I do look forward to welcoming you back soon. I fell in love with the unique location immediately on my first viewing and am glad you appreciated it too. I will pass on your sentiments to the cleaning team who always work so hard to maintain "spotlessly clean" standards.
Vivid is one of my favourites too, and I concur - definitely the best cake!

It was pleasure to host your stay in Manchester; I'm so glad you and your partner enjoyed your time this festive season and I look forward to welcoming you back later this year. I'm very excited to announce that a new luxury King-sized bed and mattress will arrive this weekend. I "discovered" the mattress during my own vacation and simply had to bring the same to Manchester!
Best wishes for 2014 to you both

With a tranquil canal setting, this inner complex apartment has no noise pollution from it inner city location. Enclosed with electronic security, we were free to investigate Manchester as we saw fit.… More
It was wonderful to host you and your friends during your stay in Manchester. I'm very pleased that the DVD collection provided entertainment for the ladies whilst the gentlemen were able to take advantage of the peace and tranquillity of this location, after what a little birdy told me was quite the night out!
To complement the list of dining recommendations, I am currently compiling a list of late night entertainment venues to prevent any more interesting surprises at the hands of Mancunian taxi drivers...
I look forward to welcoming you all back in the near future for your next concert/match/weekend break. Thank you once again for your care of the apartment and your recommendation.
