The space

The Pad has been designed (by us!) with luxury, comfort and elegant touches for the overnight guest or guests (2 max). With a palette of greys and pops of colour, the room is warm and welcoming as well as super stylish.
The bed is wonderfully comfy, the furnishings unique and bespoke, and the kitchen well equipped for an overnight stay or longer.
The images reflect the high standards of the accommodation, which also benefits from a beautiful garden area downstairs.
Lots of drawer and clothes hanging has been included, surface areas for your bits and bobs, plus there is a freeview TV and wireless internet.
And the most gorgeous rocking chair this side of heaven ;)

Guest access

Tea and coffee making facilities are available, as well as a fridge and microwave, sink and cupboard space for longer stays.
No amenities are shared with other guests.
There is a caretaker on site and food / refreshments can be arranged on arrival.
Strictly no smoking / pets.
Free off road car parking available, plus free on street parking available.

Interaction with guests

We can welcome guests between 2pm and 7pm, outside these times by request.
Bags can be stored if needed before this time and if the Pad is free the night before the booking, access is possible before 2pm. Later access than 7pm is available via the on site caretaker for the building, with prior notice, up to 11pm.

The neighbourhood

West Didsbury is an amazing, indie trader filled suburb of South Manchester with lots of cafes, bars and restaurants to enjoy, plus we know most of the owners so can arrange meals etc for you if help is required. We offer 10% discounts at Thyme Out (breakfasts to die for 5min walk away) and at Taste Of Honey (stunning cheeses, meats and platters). You could come for a weekend in West Didsbury and not have to leave, it's that great but Manchester is only a short bus / tram ride away.

Getting around

The Pad is literally two minutes walk from the Burton Road Manchester Metro tram stop, plus on a very handy bus route. Manchester Airport is a 15min drive away, as is the city itself.

Other things to note

We can help arrange meals, taxis, etc, just ask :)

Sian's place is a good place for couples to stay in. It is comfy and clean. It is perfect for people who is having a car with them to stay with as they have a park slot at the back. Definitely a good choice to stay in Manchester.

Beautiful room. Easy check in. Comfy bed. Neighborhood was a bit noisy late at night, but that wasn't too much of a problem. Thanks Sian!

The Pad is comfortable and cosy and has everything you need. The place was clean and welcoming and very nicely decorated. Sian was helpful and made sure we had everything we needed during our stay. I'd definitely stay here again next time I'm in Manchester.
