IT IS A FAMILY HOME NOT HOTEL
It is a welcoming family home in a safe neighbourhood with all facilities available and good transport links, as a single full time mum, I am social work trained (work in addictions field) and have taught English as a foreign language abroad, have been hosting for around 10 years, we have 2 friendly cats, breakfast is help yourself to toast and cereal, tea/coffee, but feel free to store food and cook own meals
All areas living room, kitchen, gardens and bathroom with shower, use of washing machine - increasingly i am finding that some guests spend a lot of time in the house during the week - because of the work this creates and use of extra resources I am introducing a fee of £3 per day for M-F 'office hours' for this which can be paid to me directly - one would usually expect guests to be out and about roughly speaking Mon-Friday 9-5 at least and hotels would charge for boiling water or if using base as place to 'work from home' then usually one's office would foot the bill for the wear and tear aspect of use of all facilities - it all adds up so in future as of 11.9.15 if people intend to stay in the house and have access to all electricity/gas etc. facilities then this charge will apply during the (URL HIDDEN) is expected if one is ill you should be able to relax in yr room and likewise on average 2 rest days per week but if all guests do is stay in and work and use facilities all day I reckon it is reasonable to charge extra for this as a hotel would e.g. for fridge in room etc.
Interaction with guests
We often spent time together socialising at home, watching films chatting and on day trips to local parks, museums and other attractions locally of which there are many including the Trafford centre, chill factor (URL HIDDEN) and sea life
Other things to note
The review stating that I cancelled 6 days before arrival was but was a mutual agreement due to a misunderstanding
Also if someone wants to stay for 3 months plus, monthly prices can be reduced as private arrangement
If self catering I have had to introduce an extra charge for fridge storage, electricity and gas usage and rubbish management and the extra cleaning this creates of £10 per week, also key deposit of £5 as too many people have left with the key - payable on arrival in cash please , if people bring lots of take outs and do not self cater (i.e. store and cook food here) the charge will be £5 for extra rubbish management, other house rules available on arrival or by email beforehand
