I do not charge cleaning fees as guests are expected to do their own cleaning including sharing in the recycling and putting out rubbish bins etc for guests staying longer than 2 nights. For long term guests I request they change and wash the bedding every week . I have provided mattress and pillow protectors for use on the mattress below the sheet and on pillows underneath pillow cases which should be washed every 4 weeks if long term guest . Rooms require weekly hoover and dusting . All carpets in rooms are expensive so no food or drink spill ages - including on stairs and hallways .

Tyra is exceptionally personable and amiable. We only had two dozen minutes with Tyra but conversation flowed like we had known each other for years. Rather than hospitable, it felt like home. The room is spacious, elegant and gives an impression of warmth (dark wood set of drawers, light wood chest at foot of bed). Everything is of good quality and cleanliness: bathroom, room, etc. Tyra was patient and efficient when faced with our constantly changing plans.

The house is really nice with excellent facilities and comfortable rooms . The neighborhood is quite and safe . Both rooms in the top floor are wonderful, bright , plenty of space , well aired and with very comfortable beds. The bathroom is modern with a powerful shower . The kitchen is really complete with full of staff to cook . The house has a lovely garden plenty of plants . There is a cosy star room to enjoy watching movies or tv . Tyra and her daughter are very carefully, kind and friendly . They are very willing to help you and to integrate you without invading your privacy. I strongly recommend this place for people who want to stay in a quite , safe and comfortable place in Manchester .

I stayed with Tyra and Sophia for a month and always felt welcome. Having newly moved to Manchester they were happy to suggest restaurants, bars, activities that might suit me. They also welcomed me into their home life and we often ended up socialising together! The room was a really great space with plenty of room for luggage etc. It was also easy to break away for a bit of privacy, having the top floor to myself. Didn't encounter any issues with access to space (bathroom/cookers etc) and felt comfortable using the communal areas at any time. The house is on a quiet residential street with a 5 minute walk to the parade of shops. 10 minutes in the other direction will take you to the train station - handy for commuting to the city centre! I spent a lovely month getting to know Tyra, Sophia and Billy (the cat) so if you're considering staying with them you're making the right choice!

The room was wonderful and located right on the top floor which added the feeling of privacy to our stay. Tyra looked after us very well by providing towels, extra blankets and ensuring the room was warm enough. The whole house was very clean and spotless. The description of the room is very accurate and the house is located in a nice neighborhood, within a 5 mind walk to the bus stop from where you can take a bus that takes you directly to the city centre.

We stayed three nights on a working holiday Fri, Sat and leaving Sun to enjoy Christmas markets. We were made to feel welcome. We found our hosts Tyra and Sophia charming and house is comfortable , warm and sensitively modernised with a lovely bathroom. Regular bus service to town (20 mins), bus stop 5 mins walk. Room was easily large enough for two , lovely bed and study area nicely decorated. Pity bathroom and bedroom not on same floor . Would recommend this to anyone but especially student , post grad etc.

(on behalf of Christian Loftus) Staying with Tahira and Sophia for a month was a really fun and enjoyable experience. I felt particularly welcomed by them both and my time in Manchester was without doubt made better thanks to the kindness they showed. The house is very nice with lots of interesting art throughout. I stayed in the larger top floor room which has plenty of space, a nice view of the tree tops and a cosy bed. All living arrangements worked well and the location is especially good. Being on a quiet side road it is still close to a number of good and regular transport options which is nice. I'm really glad to have stayed with them both and would recommend Tahira's with the highest confidence for future guests!

Tahira & Sophia welcomed me into their beautiful house & made me feel at home. The room on the top floor was perfect - a desk for me to work at & a comfortable bed. I was able to use the kitchen, bathroom and laundry facilities at my leisure which was great! Withington has good connections into the city centre so I was able to get to university quickly! Lots of shops nearby to get food etc. It was a great place to stay for a month whilst I waited for my flat to be ready to move into. Would highly recommend. Thankyou Tahira :)
