During my stay with Janet..
I learned more about the English language and its culture. I practiced my English with her and she tought me many vocabs with some idioms.
Janet is a lovely and kind person. She's taking care well of me if I need any help.
I recommend Janet to all students to stay in her house because it is very comfortable, safe and warm.
Her house is located near the bus stop and not far away from tram station.
I would like to thank Janet for all that she did for me. She made my stay in Manchester wonderful. Janet welcomed me like a member of her family. She dedicates a lot of time for her guests. She advised and helped me every day to make my stay easier in Manchester. She has a very beautiful house with a nice conservatory and garden in a peaceful area closed to city center. The bus station is 2 minutes walking from her house. I really recommend her ! Thank you so much Janet ! :)
My son and I recently experienced our first ever Homestay experience and as you can imagine I didn't know what to expect, but all I can say is that I am so happy that we choose to stay with Janet. I had a lot of questions with regards to our accommodation etc and Janet answered them all in a calm and kind manner. I spoke to Janet the night before we were due to leave for Manchester and I already found we had a lot in common, so that instantly put me more at ease. When we arrived the next day and entered Janet's lovely home my son and I felt as if we were in our own home. Janet's house is clean, tidy and and it instantly felt like we had lived there for years, and from the moment we met Janet we both felt right at ease. Janet instantly makes you feel welcome in her home, she is truly a kind soul who was warm, charming, intelligent, funny and overall went out of her way to make you feel as if she wanted you there. She was very kind to my son and she even bought him some of his favourite snacks which he thought was awesome, lol. We would sit with her in the evenings and we had some very interesting talks about life and I honestly felt as if I had known this person all my life. I would not hesitate to recommend anyone that is thinking of staying with Janet as I truly believe that your life would be enriched after meeting her. My son and I are already planning our next trip to Manchester, and yes we will be staying with Janet. Xx
This guest awarded the host 5 hearts but didn’t leave any comments.
Janet's a very friendly Christian lady who enjoys having guests at her home, which is a modern house in a safe area, between Manchester city centre and other small towns, shopping malls...
You may go by bus or if you drive, there's free parking everywhere, close to her home.
I'm so happy about this experience that I hope to return one day !
Great home from home. Very comfortable bed so that I slept really well. Lovely hot shower and fantastic cooked English breakfast. Would thoroughly recommend.
If I could give Janet 1 million hearts for my stay, I would. I was only there for a week and by the first day I felt at home. I was sick when I first arrived and Janet was right on top of helping me recover. Her house was also quite wonderful with clean rooms, big couches and a lovely sunroom. Not only was the house a nice accommodation, but Janet is one of the most warm hearted, delightful people to be around. She never failed to keep up a good conversation and was always making sure things were alright. If I ever go to England again, without a doubt, I will stay with Janet because of the great time I had with her. Thank you for everything!!! xx
It was a very nice holiday. Janet had picked me up from the airport and we first visited the Trafford Center.
On the following days, we talked about us and the world. I felt good in her hearty home.
Janet is a very valuable person and now I can say I came as a foreign and left as a friend.
A home from home. And a supper host, thanks Janet.
