Top Tips for April Fools…


If you’ve been tuning into our Facebook pages for Leeds and Manchester Roomzzz this week you will have noticed that we’re running a competition for you to win a night on us in Leeds City West this Friday the 1st April…. and what do you have to do to win this? Well simply share on Facebook your favourite April Fools prank… that’s it… all we ask… so to give you inspiration we have been trawling the internet:-

  • Find a box about the size of a cake. Then cover it with frosting, making it look like a cake. Then put it out in the office kitchen, or wherever people leave free food. Sit back as one of your co-workers tries to cut a slice.

  • This is the most classic and simple prank ever. Balance a small disposable cup of water on the top of a partially open door. Then wait for the splash!
  • Switch the “Pull” and “Push” signs on a set of doors. Watch as people get confused trying to open the doors.

  • Stick a post-it note under your friend’s mouse so that the paper leaf covers the mouse ball – the mouse will no longer work! Align so that the sticky part of the note doesn’t touch the ball. Costs next to nothing to do, and doesn’t cause any damage.

  • Glue eggs to the carton and beg for eggs in the morning. When the victim gets them the eggs break!

  • When your victim’s asleep sneak into their room and draw eyebrows and a moustache on their face, make sure to be their when they look in the mirror.

  • Use a pin to make a few small holes in a plastic disposable cup. Offer a drink to the victim and watch while the liquid dribbles out onto their shirt.
  • Wait until your victim is in the kitchen. Come in and start filling a bucket with water (tell them you’re washing the car or something). Only instead of actually filling the bucket, just pretend. Lift the bucket with both hands, acting like it’s heavy and filled with water. Take a couple of steps in the victim’s direction and suddenly “trip” and aim the bucket right toward them. They’ll duck thinking they’re getting splashed!

Remember these are merely suggestions (not instructions) – we simply want to get your creative juices flowing for our competition. Whatever you do on Friday this year to get a giggle out of your nearest and dearest make sure you share your past or favourites with us on Facebook and win a night’s stay in Leeds!

Top Tips…


Ah another lovely sunny day dawns and we’re a day closer to the weekend and to our April Showers promotion!

As you will probably have heard by now April has a number of long weekends for you to enjoy and where better than the luxury and comfort of Roomzzz? All you have to do is
book a room at Roomzzz Aparthotel in either Leeds or Manchester between 1st April and 8th May 2011 and we will give you a night in a luxury aparthotel from £39 per night…. what could be nicer?

But that’s not what we’re here for today… no today is the day we review our activities of choice for weekend’s in Leeds and Manchester … Now both cities are famed for their shops, they both have a branch of Harvey Nichols BUT they both also have thriving craft centres, outlets for the independent creative talent which both cities are also famed for! So why not take a turn off the high street and delve into these melting pots for truly unique jewellery, art, ceramics, furniture…. you get the picture!

In Leeds we have the Craft Centre & Design Gallery which is in Leeds City Art Gallery on The Headrow – currently they are exhibiting their annual striking ring exhibition, they research the market to include ten established jewellers and their ring designs. ‘Rings’ explores the technical and aesthetic qualities of rings and brings together a diverse collection.


In Manchester we have the fabulous Craft and Design Centre – a long established lifeline for Manchester shoppers in search of unique items – this sounds vague but I can’t do justice to the array of arts and crafts available here! The Craft Centre sits on Thomas Street which is in the Northern Quarter – Manchester’s latest area of regeneration and growth – I’d like to think that the Craft Centre acted as a magnet for this developement!


What to do with that extra hour (of daylight)? Part II

Yesterday we asked you what you were planning to do with the extra hour of daylight when the clocks spring forward this weekend… we had so much fun discussing this amongst ourselves that we thought we’d encourage the rest of you some more and so our Friday faves this week has a different theme.

Yes all you have to do to win a night in Leeds City West on us this Friday the 25th March* is tell us what you plan to do with the extra hour of daylight post this on our new Facebook page and we will pick a winner tomorrow!

One thing you could do is visit the Tutankhamun exhibition being displayed at the Trafford Centre – it’s your last chance this weekend. The story of Tutankhamun, the ancient Egyptian ‘boy king’, has captivated audiences around the world and now you can experience it first hand in Manchester.

Tutankhmun: His Tomb and His Treasures promises to take you on a fascinating journey through time to discover the relics of a forgotten tomb, only uncovered in in 1922 by archaeologist Howard Carter.

Most of Tutankhamun’s treasures are held in the Egyptian National Museum in Cairo and his tomb and mummy are preserved in the Valley of Kings, making this new exhibition a unique opportunity to experience the legendary tomb in what the organisers call ‘virtual archaeology’

Regardless of what you’re doing, but imagine what you could do with that extra hour of daylight at Roomzzz!

  • Royal Armouries Museum has over 8,000 objects displayed in five galleries our favourite is the Elephant Armour, which is the largest animal armour in the world.
