My place is less than 10 min walk to universities, 2 min walk to Oxford Road (access to the busiest bus route in Europe), 15 min walk in to town and a 20 minute drive to the Trafford Shopping Centre. Curry Mile is just a few minute drive away too. The place will work well for couples, solo adventurers and business trips.
Many shops (Lidl, Tesco, Subway, Costa) just a 5 minute walk away.
Not to mention a great mattress in your room and comfortable homely living space.
