“48 day stay on business”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

Stayed in one of the larger apartments on the 1st floor for 48 days. Very comfortable king size bed. Was in Feb and March when the weather is cold, windy and damp most of the time. The apt was warm and very comfortable with a nice size living room . I love the use of a kitchen when I have to stay for any length of time. A neighborhood Tesco is right around the corner and a very large Tesco is only about a mile away (by car). They clean and give fresh towels everyday, which is not common for serviced apts.. Usually its only once or twice a week. The manager is very helpful. There were a few issues but he took care of them right away and without it being an inconvenience to me. The only down side for me is there are no clothes washer/dryers in the apts. Somethings are a bit dated. Will definately stay again if I am working in this area.

Room Tip: I have seen most of the apts and they are all nice. I prefer a larger bed so be sure to specify as s...

We stayed in standard apartment 6 over Christmas. The owner is not resident so you have to notify him of your time of arrival. The apartment is quite roomy, clean, warm and comfortable but the boiler system leaked and needed to be topped up with water roughly every hour. Fortunately I am familiar with a closed system so I could do this but others might have found this difficult. You should check that this has been repaired before booking. The owner pointed out that the bathroom needed refurbishing and that the hairdryer on the wall did not work but neither did the shaver point. He did provide another hairdryer but this was a 400 watt one which was under powered. The TV was old with poor sound reproduction.

We stayed at the La Suisse Apartments in August for a few days. The Apartments in Bury Old Road are situated in Prestwich; just a bit in the
North of Manchester. For public transport you have a bus stop just close by at the street bringing you into the city centre as well as to the city centre of Bury. Up the street you find a Tesco Express as well as a Chinese take away and a chippie shop for instance.

The Apartments itself are perfectly equipped. Modern high standard kitchen equipment as well as modern furniture. The service is perfect as well as your apartment is cleaned everyday. If you need anything, for instance extra towels or if you have any further question the owners and service staff are there to help you at all times. The Apartments are also very clean.

We've been there a lot of times and have stayed in nearly all of the apartments available at La Suisse. They are all very nice and offer you the perfect surrounding for a lovely holiday. For us the apartments are great as it only takes about 15 minutes to drive into the city by car; having a Tesco supermarket and a motorway connection nearby and can simultaneously enjoy the comfort and quiet of our apartment. It is also ideally situated for Manchester United supporters as we are as you can easily join the M60 ring road within minutes and then drive until Old Trafford in a very short and easy way.

We would definitely recommend La Suisse Apartments as they possess and offer everything you need to spend a perfect holiday, so to speak the perfect place to stay!

We have stayed in La Suisse Apartments a number of times when we visit family and friends in the area.The facilities offered by the apartments both in comfort and convenience are the best in the area. We are always made welcome.
They are maintained to the highest standard.
A peaceful location but near to transport links.
A good place to stay if you are visiting the Manchester area

We had to come to Manchester to help a family member move house, and were originally planning on staying in a hotel. We've done this before, and it can be very hard - once the baby's asleep you find yourself stuck in a dim room not wanting to make a sound so as not to wake the baby, and time drags somewhat!

I found this place just by chance on Laterooms, and I'm actually in the apartment now. The check in guy had to come and meet us because there is no reception, but he appeared when he said he would (we had to ring 20 mins in advance of arrival) and was friendly and full of advice about the area. The apartments are perfect for our needs - decent kitchen, bathroom, living room and a bedroom, so we can actually have a life here whilst wee man is asleep.

It was only £70 a night for friday and saturday, which seems very good value. All in all, very satisfied.

My boyfriend and I stayed in the ground floor apartment when we were seeing an Oasis gig at Heaton Park. Ideal location, only a 15 walk to the venue. Although I'd already paid over the phone, when we got there (at a pre-arranged time) the owner seemed very dis-organised and had us waiting around for some time before getting out a file full of paperwork and taking my card details again, making us fill out a form stating almost everything except our shoe size! A very unnecessary and tedious procedure, especially as we were eager to put our stuff in the room and get going to the gig.
Also, the continental breakfast consisted of a box of cornflakes and 2 slices of white bread wrapped in clingfilm, tea & coffee all in separate sandwich bags. Decor reminded me of a 1980's florida hotel, plastic leather effect sofas, pink & lilac walls, cheap furniture, the place would definately benefit from a little modernising. Perfectly clean and tidy though so can't fault that at all. I think if we were staying in Manchester again, we'd stay in that travel inn mentioned in the previous review.

MPManchester, Director at La Suisse Service Apartments, responded to this review, July 6, 2009
'Many thanks for taking the time to post a review of your stay at our apartments.
I'm sorry that you thought the time taken to check you in was a bit on the long side. This was an exceptionally busy period for us at all our apartments due mainly to the Oasis concert at nearby Heaton Park. We have reviewed our checkin to make it simpler & reduced the form filling. Point taken !!
I also note your comments on the breakfast offering. We only offered a light breakfast on this occasion as an exception, nevertheless I fully accept what you are saying, & we won't be repeating it.

Our apartments at Bury Old Road are currently being refurbished to a very high standard, with new furniture, fixtures & fittings, with two out of the five completed. Other external building works have also taken place & are now finished. The remaining apartments will be refurbished during the course of the year.
All apartments are spotlessly clean, ( as you noted with yours ), & offer free wifi, fully equiped kitchen, shower or bath, double or twin bedrooms, lounge with freeview TV, ( Flatscreens being installed ), & are located in a quiet area with free parking. The apartments are located about 10 minutes walk from Heaton Park & the metro tram link into Manchester City Centre. A regular bus service runs from virtually outside the door to the city centre & to Bury. For motorists, the M60 motorway is five minutes away. Numerous shops, places to eat & drink are close by.
These apartments are popular with short & long stay guests who appreciate more spacious accommodation than found in many hotels. It also gives the convenience of being close not just to the city centre & but other areas of Greater Manchester, & in a quieter location.

Again, thank you for the review. Its only comments like yours & websites like Trip Advisor that keeps us on our toes, & tells us that although we get many things right, there is always room for improvement.'
