Our stay at th riverside villas suited the purpose very well as we had a large group and across the two houses everyone could fit in easily with plenty of bedrooms and bathrooms for everyone. Plenty of hot water and very well heated. The contact with the property manager and housekeeper on the ground was excellent. The houskeeper stayed in regular contact and was very friendly and helpful adding nice touches like bottles of wine and flowers. She even posted some left behind items back to us! Amazing! However I would not describe these villas as luxury and actually they both needed some renovation work. The front rooms are quite dark and dreary and decor could be more stylish and more modern, considering the amount paid. A lot of potential here but I think the owner could do a lot more to make them real 'luxury villas'. They are a longish (30 mins) walk or quick (ten min) taxi ride into central Manchester and it's a very quiet residential area.
We all had a really nice stay at the Riverside Suite 2.
Ben the owner, was very helpful and his contact was excellent throughout, keeping me well informed and up to date. His contact in Manchester, Ligia, was also excellent, very helpful and attentive to anything that we may need.
The property itself was excellent, very large, modern and spacious. It easily accommodated our quite large group into the house with no trouble at all. Plenty of space to sleep and relax before and after our night out.
The house itself is situated in a newly built residential area that is very quiet and pleasant. With a nice big driveway easily big enough for 2 cars, its a bonus to not have to find parking.
You can walk into Manchester's Centre in about 20/25 minutes, or you can get a taxi there in no more than 5 minutes for roughly the cost of a pint. So all in all you can't complain abut the place.
I would recommend this property to anyone wishing to stay in a large, pleasant & modern property!
Although the house was recently renewed and not yet complete, our stay was very nice.
The house is located in a very quiet neighborhood, it is relatively new with lots of constructions in the area. But that definitely did not make our stay less pleasant!
The public park across the river is very beautiful. We also liked the fact that a walk to Manchester's downtown is manageable even with an 11 years old kid.
The owner was very nice, and responsed to all our inquiries (we had a lot of them) in timely manner.
We highly recommend this rental, and will sure come back upon our next visit to Manchester.
