My experience in Manchester was absolutely perfect! The host was super responsive, the pictures posted were accurate, the Airbnb exceeded my expectations!! I was able to comfortably work during the day and easily walk to nightlife in the evenings. Management a joy to deal with too.

This apartment was perfect for our break and suited us perfectly. The host was extremely accommodating, professional and friendly. We found the apartment to be spotlessly clean and bright. The Airbnb is well positioned in The Northern Quarter for access to the many restaurants, bars and street art. We will definitely return for another stay.

The apartment is close to Manchester CBD, clean and good value. Nice smart tv and undercover parking which was great for our hire car. Host was amazing too. Kitchen has all the appliances you need and the selection of teas was a nice touch. Was in a quiet area close to the shops. Really enjoyed our stay here.

I have used the services of Superhost Plus to Airbnb my Manchester apartment on multiple occasions and I have always been impressed with their professionalism and excellent communication. Chris has excellent management skills and I would happily recommend their services to others.
I made contact with Chris from SH+ to help with my investment property which is in the heart of Manchester around the corner from their office so it was super handy for me. Chris was eager to assist and spent time explaining how the company works and what they can do for me. I met with Chris last week at their office on King Street [lovely fancy building too!] and also got to meet the SH+ team. The whole operation is both extremely professional and helpful, answering all of my questions and easing my concerns with Airbnb rentals. I would highly recommend speaking with Chris if you are considering leasing your property via short term rentals.

Fabulous experience. We were travelling with our 1 year old son and we wanted to let our Manchester place out temporarily. We thought Airbnb was the way forward but we weren’t sure how to go about it. The staff at Superhost Plus were very extremely helpful in assisting us and even advised on places to travel too! Now that’s customer service and perfect management too!

11 Tips to become a Manchester Superhost

We have put together 11 tips, a variety of which we currently use for our Manchester Airbnb Management.

If you follow these tips, it will almost guarantee you superhost status. Note that these are specific to Manchester Airbnb stays.

If you want a comprehensive list of general tips you can read our article 30 Superhost Airbnb Tips That Will Skyrocket Your Ratings, Income And Occupancy!

11 Airbnb hosting Tips from Manchester's leading Airbnb Management Company

1. Use Manchester artists and artwork to furnish your space

Guests love eccentricities and anything local. Remember, your guests chose Airbnb over a sterile hotel room. So you should take advantage of the great works of art that Manchester has to offer.

If your Airbnb is in The Northern Quarter of Manchester for example you could choose some art from Len Grant who has used watercolour and fountain pen to create a great sketch of the area. This image of the iconic Vinyl exchange and lovely cafe Fig and Sparrow on Oldham Street in the Northern Quarter would compliment your Manchester Airbnb nicely. For those with Northern Quarter apartments, the incredible street artists of the district such as Akse, Faunagraphic or Qubek would certainly complement your décor.If your Airbnb is in Salford, you could consider the works of world famous L.S. Lowry who painted the stickmen over a backdrop of the city.

If you choose wisely, your guests will be delighted that you have gone the extra mile and created a space for them that is not only local, but also classy.

You could also consider sourcing from local artists and craftspeople as it will help people feel the ‘local’ experience. Have a day out at the incredible Manchester Craft and Design Centre where you will certainly find  textiles, jewellery, accessories, ceramics, glass, prints as well as local homeware.

Using local Manchester artwork in your Airbnb will give your guests that local feel. You don’t need to go overboard but a little sprinkle here and there will go a long way.

2. Go over and above what you put in your Manchester Airbnb listing

Welcome your guest to Manchester with more than you put in your Airbnb advert.

You could perhaps make a deal with a local coffee shop such as the Fig + Sparrow on Oldma street (as in the Len Grant sketch above!) or my personal favourite Richmond Tea Rooms and offer guests a fresh coffee in the morning.

You could also offer vouchers for discounts at local restaurants such as or a drink at a bar such as the incredible Sinclair’s Oyster Bar or hip Cane And Grain.

If it’s allowed, you could even share your gym membership. Some gyms such as Puregym offer a free voucher for paying members, so why not give that to your guests? You can also give guests free vouchers for local attractions for tours such as Rock and Goal Manchester.

You can’t go wrong offering more than what is in your listing. This will only increase your chance of getting better ratings and in turn higher occupancy.

3. Write to guests a week before they arrive and introduce them to Manchester and your local area

When you write to your guests make it as personalised as you can from their profile without being too intrusive. If they reply then give them all the local nuggets that you know about that may not be in guidebooks or online! Tailor your answers to your guests’ individual preferences.

Include some information about your house and surrounding area. If you are in the Northern Quarter, perhaps mention about the art work and any hidden bars such as The Washhouse where guests can enjoy a cocktail in a coffee cup chained to the radiator [as Manchester’s Alan Turing used to do].

Before guests arrive try to gather as much information about their likes and dislikes. This can be as simple as asking about their food/music/recreational preferences. If they like certain Manchester bands such as Oasis or Bee Gees, you could tell your guests venues where they used to play or practice such as the The Boardwalk or The Gaumont cinema [For Oasis and Bee Gees respectively]

The same is true for sports fans. If you have football fans staying you can explain how the Premier League had its roots in Manchester, and direct them to the venue and the plaque that shows this. Perhaps direct them to the National Football Museum which is great for fans of all clubs. You can even show the city centre apartment where Manchester City’s manager currently lives.

Of course everything will depend on your guests’ preferences. If they prefer restaurants, tell them about the Restaurants of Manchester. If they prefer theatre, explain about the Manchester Theatres and any discount codes that they sometimes give.

Just use your discretion. The personal touch will definitely improve your chances of Superhost status!

4. Give your Airbnb guests plenty of information on what is available in Manchester

Although many guests will just use their smartphones to find out what is happening in and around Manchester, it’s also a good idea to share your local knowledge too as not everything happening in Manchester is available online.

You pick up some brochures from Manchester Visitor Information Centre. Many people prefer something to flick through when they arrive. These brochures can be tourist destinations such as Science and Industry Museum or The Manchester Museum. Also, get some menus both from local takeaways and restaurants.

Remember to include places that may not be so prominent online or may be a little out of the search area on their phones. These places can include Lyme Hall which is my personal favourite and just 25 minutes by train from Piccadilly Station. If they want the traditional country experience you can direct them to Edale which is 45 minutes away but is stunning in every way.

A good idea also is to include any specific events that are happening. Your guests may be aware of venues and places but not what is actually on in the city. So if your Airbnb guests are there on a date when there’s special events on, include them. This could be for example Manchester Day, Manchester Pride, Manchester International Festival, Manchester Christmas Markets or a whole host of other festivities. Luckily you are hosting in an incredible city so there will always be plenty of events on to delight your guests.

By knowing what is on locally that they otherwise wouldn’t have known about, your guests will likely reward you with a 5 star review.

5. Create a Manchester Airbnb guidebook

In the digital era, guidebooks may seem a little dated, but we guarantee that guests will appreciate having something to read that is not on their digital device. The guidebook should of course include all the local amenities of your local area of Manchester. You could include the best Manchester tourist attractions as well as images of Manchester.

Manchester Airbnb Welcome Guidebook
Things to do in Manchester Airbnb Guidebook

Of course it should also include details of your Airbnb too. Make sure you include all the essentials such as how to work the television [you can include that Manchester has its own TV station], the WiFi details, how to work the cooker, heating and so on. We have a more detailed post about that here.

We have had great success and feedback with our guidebooks and we would encourage you to use them to your advantage!

6. Give guests detailed Manchester parking instructions

Guests will often arrive to Manchester by car, even in the City Centre. However, guests will not be aware of the parking restrictions in the city. In the centre, Manchester has on-street parking restrictions, in a controlled parking zone, between 8am – 8pm every day of the week.

There are also residents’ parking zones where residents parking permits must be displayed. There are also rules and restrictions for motorbike parking where there are  60 on-street bays to park for free. So if your Airbnb is close to one of those and you know your guest is arriving by motorcycle be sure to include this in your information before guests arrive.

Manchester City Centre Parking Zones

Guests will not want to learn about parking restrictions when they arrive. If your guests receive a parking ticket from Manchester City Council, guess who will get a negative review

Keep your Airbnb guests happy and give them up-to-date Manchester parking information!

7. Include Manchester produce in your Airbnb welcome basket

If you are currently not providing a welcome basket you are missing out on a trick!

Manchester has some world famous produce that you can include. For example you could include a bottle of Vimto which has its roots in central Manchester. You could also include some Eccles Cakes which are from neighbouring Salford. Or, perhaps you could use include some Swizzels which come from neighbouring New Mills.

Salford's Eccles cakes are now made in Ardwick, Manchester

You could also include a bottle of local real ale from breweries such as the City Centre’s Cloudwater or Stockport’s Robinsons. There are also mini Prestwich Gin as well as Manchster Gin which you can also provide a taste of. UNfortunately, due to Manchester’s climate we don’t have wine to offer [yet!].

Giving a little taster of Manchester will do wonders for your ratings!

8. Include a little card which explains how the Manchester transport system works

The Manchester transport system is notoriously difficult to navigate, and that is coming from me, a Manchester local! Our Mayor, Andy Burnham is currently trying to reform out confused system!

All the transport options are separate from each other. For example, North Manchester uses First a different bus company to South Manchester which uses Stagecoach. Then bus day tickets expire at different times depending on the company! You can’t use one bus company day ticket with another company unless you get a special ticket which you have to request.

First Bus services North Manchester
Stagecoach bus services South Manchester

The Metrolink [tram] is separate from the trains [unless you buy a train ticket that includes Manchester Central Zone]. For trams and trains you need to buy a ticket before you board but for buses you can buy them when you get on.

You can see how confusing it is, even to a local like myself so imagine how confused your Airbnb guests will be who have just arrived!

So by creating a detailed guide explaining how the Manchester transport system works can earn your guests’ eternal gratitude!

9. Keep a selection of offline, Manchester based entertainment

Here you can include local newspapers such as The Manchester Evening News or if you are in The Heatons you could also include a copy of MoorMag, whilst Levenshulme Airbnbs can provide Levenshulme News. Guests are unlikely to search these online as invariably they will not know they exist. However, they can be a wealth of information for up and coming local events.

 

You will find that sometimes guests will appreciate being away from the screen. If you have the space you can include a Manchester dartboard which is unique to Manchester. One of my favourite games to include is Manchester Monopoly which includes sites such as Old Trafford, Albert Square and The Quay’s.

For Salford Airbnbs there is also a new Salford Monopoly addition! You might also be able to dig out a Coronation Street boardgame which is great fun for diehard Corrie fans.

Salford Monopoly includes landmarks uch as Mediacity, Salford Cathedral, Salford Lads Club and Ordsall Hall

Even if the games aren’t played, they are still a great thing to provide as they add that little bit of uniqueness and nostalgia to your guests’ stay.

10. Leave an Umbrella for your guests. Chances are it will rain at some point whilst they are in Manchester

Did you know that because it rained so much here that Manchester used to have its own umbrella factory?! In fact it’s now been converted into an amazing little pub cleverly called Rain Bar.

Rain Bar, Great Bridgewater Street, Manchester
Rain Bar on Bridgewater Street is well worth a visit, especially if it is raining

Machester is famous worldwide for its rain. Whilst this stereotype may be a little unfair, it can definitely be said that it does rain a lot in Manchester. Remember, your guests may be arriving from warmer climes and may not be prepared for the inevitable rain of Manchester!

Leave a range of umbrellas for your guests. It might not be the most exciting of tips but may be one of the more practical ones!

11. Leave a little Manchester present for your guests to take home

Hosts generally leave a welcome present such as a bottle of wine, chocolates or flowers. You should include a welcome guest but why not include a farewell gift too?

Gifts including Manchester symbols such as our bee can be a lovely going away present. It doesn’t have to be anything lavish, just a simple bee keyring or bee balm will do just nicely as the bee is the symbol of Manchester. Of course there are many things you could choose, but remember that your guests may be in Manchester as part of a longer trip so try to keep your gift small in size.

Guests will remember your kindness and you will likely be rewarded with a 5 star review.

Summary

There’s quite a few steps to take to make your guests feel welcome. However, If you are looking for a reputable Manchester Airbnb Management Service please feel free to contact us. We would be delighted to help.

Conclusion

 

So you can see that your best chance of achieving superhost status for your Manchester Airbnb is to start the hospitality before they arrive, keep local information flowing whilst they are staying and then to finish off by providing a leaving present. This will ensure that your Airbnb guests have a great experience and you will invariably get your well earned 5 star review!

 

So these things work for us. But tell us, what else would you look for as a guest from a Manchester Airbnb management service?
