About the Homestay

Urban Cosy

My name is Tanya and I have a nice double room available to homestay guests. It's in a quiet street but convenient for both the bus and the tram.
I'm in my 40s and I speak some, English and French as well as some Czech, Korean, and Turkish and enjoy cooking, movies, music, festivals, painting, reading, photography, socialising, travel, TV and theatre.
I work out of Manchester on some days so can offer bed and breakfast in the price, with meals as extra on the days I am here. You are welcome to use the kitchen though!

    Traveled to Manchester for fotball in 12 days and was out and about a lot, but when i was home i felt like home. Much better then hotel, much better rom/bed and great service. Tanya is supernice and is so helpfull if it is anything she can do for you.
    It's allso easy to get to and from the city with Tram few minutes away and busses driving by al the time.
    And the house is in a quiet street so no noise to think about.
    I'm so glad I tried this instead off hotels and other things.

    I spent in Tanya's house just a week, but it was a special one. She has been very nice with me since the very begining of my stay, always trying to be helpful, welcoming and friendly. The room is good and the house confortable, not in the city centre but well connected to. I also took English lessons with her and I was extremely satisfied, Tanya is an excellent teacher, and his lectures were so nice to give the impression that the time flew ... Really a good experience, which I would recommend to anyone.

    I spent the whole month of August with Tanya and it was a wonderful experience! I was at ease and I felt at home since the very beginning. The house is well connected to Manchester (only 20min by bus) and my room was huge! I had all the confort I needed and I couldn't expect more.
    She is a a great woman, a great cook, a great host and friend :) I would definitely come back and reccomend her for future guests :)
    Thanks Tanya! x
