Top Tips…

Well the weekend is nearly upon us yet again and as such will be full on in Leeds and Manchester, at Roomzzz we are looking forward to welcoming our weekenders, from those who’ve got an event to attend, to those who just fancied a visit to a different city and those visiting friends or family and want to do so in style and comfort!

But maybe, just maybe, you don’t have any plans yet and so we want to temp you into our clutches. Now we know that the thought of our fabulous apartments in Manchester and Leeds are lure enough but just in case you’re wavering…

Did you see the Antiques Roadshow last week? Well they visited the fabulous village of Saltaire which is about a 20 min train ride from Leeds city centre and about an hour’s drive from Manchester. Saltaire could fill an afternoon of anybody’s time, the village is dominated by Salts Mill once home to the largest spinning shed in the world now host to a whole range of galleries and shops. The 1853 gallery is worth a visit alone, it holds a collection of David Hockney paintings and drawings and at the moment they are showing the latest of his works created on his iPhone and iPad – you could get inspiration for when you return to Roomzzz and can make use of our in room Apple Macs.

Whatever you’re doing this weekend don’t forget that Friday night is all about Comic Relief so make sure that you take advantage of our free calls and wi-fi to make that all important donation!

Mid week catch up…

It’s Wednesday and we’re thinking about the weekend again… yes we’re indulging ourselves with tales of our favourite things found in our luxurious rooms and of all the reasons we can find to stay in one of them!


We didn’t have to hunt for long as both Manchester and Leeds have many exciting events to attend over the next few months, here are a couple of our suggestions to make your stay in Roomzzz even more enjoyable:-


Manchester International Festival is being held from the 30th June until the 17th July and promises a full range of exciting activities, it is the world’s first international festival and hosts a programme of original new work and special events

The first shows for the 2011 Festival are
announced and on sale now:

The Life and Death of Marina Abramović – a startling new piece for the stage: a biography of the godmother of performance art re-imagined by visionary director Robert Wilson, featuring music written and performed by Antony. Starring Marina Abramović and Willem Dafoe.

Victoria Wood’s That Day We Sang – one of Britain’s best-loved writers and performers creates a new play – the story of the Manchester Children’s Choir.

Wagner die Walküre + The Madness Of An Extraordinary Plan
Sir Mark Elder and the Hallé in a concert performance of Wagner’s Die Walküre plus a specially commissioned dramatic prologue
written by Gerard McBurney and directed by Neil Bartlett.

Leeds is not to be left out of the festivities either and we find it’s all in the planning! Leeds Festival is being held in Bramham Park again this year on 27th-29th August, now this may seem like a life time away but think how you’d feel if you missed out on one of our fabulous rooms and had to stay in a tent!


Take advantage of us!

Here at Roomzzz Aparthotel we are more than aware that our guests are happy to visit us at the drop of a hat but we don’t take that for granted no no… we know that our prime locations in Leeds and across the Pennines in Manchester are more than enticing BUT we want to keep giving!


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.

PS Don’t forget that we have an extra special offer running at Leeds City West – you can enjoy a weekend for the great price of £40 per night per apartment – we had such a phenomenal response that we’ve extended it until the end of March but you only have two weekends left to take us up on this so don’t be disappointed and give us a call now on 0844 499 4888.

You know that feeling – the warm glow of satisfaction knowing that you’ve made someone’s day? Well here at Roomzzz HQ we’re feeling just that…in fact it’s been a nice happy week – we’ll tell you why.

Firstly – we announced our winners of our first Friday Favourites competition

Just to bring you up to speed…

The gist is we say it’s Friday and as a treat for our fans and followers you get the chance to tell us what your fav things are about staying in our luxury aparthotel in Leeds and Manchester, post it on Facebook and wait till Wednesday of the following week to find out if you’ve only gone and won.

Won what? A Friday night stay on the house of course – in Leeds. Which offers a multitude of exciting weekend options… and plus you even get the chance to stay on the house Friday and you might even like to book an extra night on the Saturday with a nice discount (of course) we look after our winners and guests – and make it into a whole luxury weekender.

Our winners were naturally delighted to stay in a city centre luxury hotel on the house in Leeds (well you would be wouldn’t you)

The emotions of maybe winning and then winning went like this…

‘Before I get all excited for nothing can I please check if I’m one of the lucky winners? I commented on your post on 25th Feb (last Fri)’

And also… ‘When are you going to be announcing who’s won the stay this Friday? It’s too exciting!’

Which led to the revelation of winning…

‘That’s amazing, thank you so much!’

Secondly, We were really pleased to find out that our winners had a fabulous time – she told everyone about it on Facebook I just wanted to post a, HUGE, thank you for our night in Leeds. The staff were amazing, couldn’t do enough to help. We had a fantastic time and hope to do it all again soon! :D :D

Thirdly – we announced our next winner who is staying tonight…this was her winning entry…

Woohoo happy to see this comp is running again. I would love to say how lovely your hotels are but have not yet had chance to pay them a visit ( I can say how gorgeous the piccies look though). I will instead tell you why I would love to win this. My boyfriend is out of town this weekend and so my parents are wanting to come and visit me. This would be a lovely surprise so they can stay down and spend a couple of days with me & not have to do their usual dashing visit x Fingers crossed xx

And her happy response…

Wow thank you so so so so much xxx

So as you can see… a feel good week across the board! We think that all luxury and boutique hotels should do this… maybe it’s just us. What you can be certain of is that in our accommodation in Leeds and Manchester this weekend all of our guests will be radiating good cheer and happiness!

Enjoy the weekend!

PS – we’re running the comp again… starting from NOW! You have until Weds next week to perfect your story. Post them on Roomzzz Facebook

Hot Tips

Today’s the day you find out what’s what in Leeds and Manchester. Naturally we only select the best bits…(in our opinion) We think when you stay in luxury accommodation in Leeds you should be mixing it up – a bit of culture with a good night out… and the same when you stay in a luxury hotel in Manchester you want a rounded experience of the City…and some good fun of course!

Our winner of the Friday Favourites comp for this week will be announced later on today on Facebook – they will be enjoying a free nights stay with us in Leeds…on Friday 11th – hence the name Friday Favourites. Lucky winner.

The Mid Week Catch Up! Racing Towards the Weekend!


Wait… wasn’t it just the weekend? And now it’s mid week? Time for another weekend then!!

Another busy week since our last Mid Week Catch Up – Roomzzz HQ have been caught up in a frenzy of Springtime activities and making the aparthotels even more irresistible to our fans! We read a comment on a forum that ladies especially love Roomzzz… I think it’s on account of us having amazing suites and nice baths with TVs. (well you would wouldn’t you?)

Well enough of the indulgence…and we know it’s a good while off yet – but we’re thinking about The Bupa Great Run. It’s on Sunday 15th May and is hosted in Manchester City Centre. It attracts 38,000 runners and is hailed as the nation’s favourite running event. It’s even televised live on BBC.

Roomzzz is the perfect luxury hotel to have an amazing nights sleep before the big day – and is equally amazing to be welcomed back after pounding the streets to a luxury apartment some of which feature the afore mentioned TV bath viewing experience. And relax….

Thinking of this weekend – there is still time to get your Friday Favourites comments on the Roomzzz Facebook – to get yourselves a night on the house with us this Friday and it’s good to have in the back of your mind your April get-away to either Leeds or Manchester to stay in sublime luxury accommodation in the City Centres of our great Northern Cities for just £39.00.

Better get your running shoes dusted off then…Roomzzz are going fast…

39 Reasons to Stay at Roomzzz Aparthotel

Part 1

There are a multitude of reasons to stay at Roomzzz…our winners of our mini-comp ‘Friday Favourites’ highlighted some of your favourite things… but on the advent of our Happy April Holidays (stay at Roomzzz through April from £39) we thought it a good idea to run through our fav things… to total 39 of course. (a little celebration for making April a little less showery and a lot more flowery) Here is part 1…

  1. You get a whole apartment to yourself

  2. Locations are perfectly central in Leeds

  3. Leeds City is a tiny step from Harvey Nics

  4. Our Manchester location is a tiny step from Selfridges

  5. You can stay for 1 night or as long as you like

  6. You can live in luxury when you stay in whichever location

  7. Some say that aparthotels are 100% better than staying in a luxury hotel in Leeds, and luxury hotels in Manchester (!)

  8. You get a Apple Mac in your apartment

  9. You can choose from studio all the way up to indulgent suites

  10. Our team are fabulous and love to welcome you to stay!

  11. If you’re staying tonight you can make excellent pancakes!

PS. (Happy Pancake day!!)

PPS. Don’t forget to take huge advantage of our April Holidays offer… get in there first… we’re selling out fast!

How do you like yours?

Got to be traditional stylee… lemon and sugar without a shadow of a doubt – although we read somewhere this weekend a certain famous chef like his with melted mars bar sauce poured over roast bananas…(huh?)

There are others who fill theirs with fruit and others on a chocolate tip whose main goal in life is to empty a jar of Nutella (not the small size either)

Then is the question about how do you serve? Carefully rolled with the insides squeezing out or flat as the proverbial with a sprinkle of sugar?

We reckon if you’re a purist (lemon and sugar) or an indulgent exhibitionist (melted mars bars) you should know exactly what we’re on about here…

Lucky for you that if you’re in the vicinity of Leeds and Manchester over the next few days you too can be flipping pancakes with the best of them…Not only are our aparthotels boutique and beautiful they are also beautifully practical with designer kitchens especially perfect for whipping up a tasty treat. Who said that luxury hotel accommodation couldn’t give you everything your heart desires and more? Not us… we give you luxury to suit all pockets AND a place to make flippin perfect pancakes…

So that’s sorted. Just one more thing… just how do you like yours? Answers on our Facebook if you would be so kind!

It’s Friday Favourites #2! Your Chance to Win!


You know that saying… ‘you’ve got to be in it to win it’… – annoyingly true.

So generally a rule of thumb is if there is a competition you like the sound of – get entering it… as you never know… ‘it could be you’…to quote another well known saying.

So last week we pipe up with a little Friday treat… we named it imaginatively ‘Friday Favourites’. The gist is we say it’s Friday and as a treat for our fans and followers you get the chance to tell us what your fav things are about staying in our luxury aparthotel in Leeds and Manchester, post it on Facebook and wait till Wednesday of the following week to find out if you’ve only gone and won.

Won what? A Friday night stay on the house of course – in Leeds.

So do we have winners? Of course we do… AND we decided to have 3 winners not 1. Here are the winning comments…
