Très bon séjour chez Linda. Elle est très sympathique et accueillante. Le premier jour où je suis arrivé, elle m'a aidé pour faire mes courses et m'a montré les endroits où je pouvais prendre le bus. L'endroit est bien desservie en transport en commun pour pouvoir rejoindre Manchester
I have been living with Linda for almost 10 days and my stay there has been more than pleasant. The neighbourhood is really calm and amazing for taking long and relaxing walks. Linda is a lovely and open person, someone whom you can share conversations and laughs with. She has been more than welcome during my stay there and I regret not spending more time with her. Also, the bed from the guest room is the most comfortable thing ever! You will find it hard to get out of it in the mornings :) For anyone interested in visiting Manchester, I suggest you chose Linda. You will love it!
P.S. Thank you for everything, Linda! :*
Linda was very helpful and I really feel good. The room was nice with a very comfortable bed. If I travel the next time to Manchester I'll visit her, because I'll miss the conversations with Linda. Thank you for the good time and your help!!
