“Fantastic! Wonderful location. Felt like 'home away from home'...” We currently live in Perth, Western Australia and this was our first trip home to Manchester, after 18 months.
Last year we sold our home in the UK so wanted somewhere that would feel welcoming and provide us with more than just a 'base'. It was a special visit home, Christmas and New Year and we have lots of family and friends that we were eager to share time with.
Jacqueline, the owner, was not just a point of contact. She was welcoming, from the outset, and didn't overlook the fact that we had travelled a long way. She was there to meet us and to explain everything we needed to know about the apartment and the amenities.
Jacqueline had not only left necessities to help us settle in but she added special touches such as a bottle of sparkly to celebrate my husband, Peter's 50th birthday and a large, beautifully wrapped Christmas cake in the lead up to the big day.
In regard to the apartment itself, it was exceptionally spacious, modern and clean. We wanted for nothing, throughout our three week stay and had access to washer/dryer which enabled us to return to Australia, with suitcases full of clean laundry which was wonderful, after a long haul flight.
Fully equipped kitchen and personal touches, such as 'tree' lighting, candle holders and fairy lights meant we didn't have to spend a penny to make the apartment feel warm and homely, over the festive season.
Jacqueline even provided a plentiful amount of towelling and bed linen and visited the apartment , via mutual arrangement, during our stay to change the the linen, towels etc., during our stay.
Perhaps one of the most outstanding features of this beautiful apartment, is its proximity to the City Centre and its underground parking. We could stroll to the city, like it was taking a trip to the local shops, and have everything, on our doorstep. Friends and family could meet us close by (as the neighbouring car park had ample space, at certain times of day and wasn't overly expensive).
We will most definitely seek out Jacqueline again, on our next return to Manchester and can genuinely say we had a wonderful time, thanks to renting this fabulous apartment and, more importantly wonderful lady owner.
Thank you Jacqueline.

Wellington House Whalley Range
Was good and as described in the advertisement for the house.. Clean and lots of cutlery and glasses.
A few drug dealers on the street tried to sell us drugs, a few times and police was called out to the street once during our stay but other than that we actually had no problems.
The women next door don't like noise but she shouldn't live next to a house that is rented out every other weekend to stag and Hen do's that can sleep up to 12 people... But this is a good stay for Manny!! …
