I booked this for my husbands birthday and we loved it. I booked a studio apartment on the top floor as I’d read that you got a balcony, this was a great added bonus. The bed was comfy, bathroom lovely, iMac great and kitchen was a bonus. Will definitely use Roomzzz when we go to Manchester. Very cheap too, especially with the loyalty card :)

The Sage Gateshead is a centre for musical education, performance and conferences, located in Gateshead 
It opened in 2004 and occupies a curved glass and stainless steel building, the planning and construction process cost over £70 million, which was raised primarily through National Lottery grants. The Sage Gateshead is also available as a conference venue: for example it hosted the Liberal Democrat Party conference in March 2012.
Wikipedia tells us that the building contains three performance spaces; a 1,700-seater, a 450-seater and a smaller rehearsal and performance hall. The rest of the building was designed around these three spaces to allow for maximum attention to detail in their acoustic properties. Structurally it is three separate buildings, insulated from each other to prevent noise and vibration travelling between them. The gaps between them may be seen as one walks around inside. A special ‘spongy’ concrete mix was used in the construction, with a higher-than-usual air capacity to improve the acoustic. These three buildings are enclosed (but not touched) by the now-famous glass and steel shell.
The building is open to the public throughout the day. Visitors can see rehearsals, soundchecks and workshops in progress. It has five bars, a brasserie, the “Sir Michael Straker Café”, and “The Barbour Room” – a multi-purpose function room which holds around 200 people.

"Posh City Pad"

Check us out…. this is what this month’s Bella Magazine had to say about Roomzzz…

Home from Home…

 
We’ve always like to think of Roomzzz as a Home from Home… and now one of our lovely guests who stayed in our Manchester hotel has said it for us!
“HOME FROM HOME”
5 of 5 starsReviewed 20 April 2012 
*****
Check-in is not until 2pm and I arrived at 1030 and was greeted by a friendly, helpful receptionist who took my luggage and told me to come back at 1.30pm and my room would be ready.

My room was spacious and bright and well laid out. The furnishings were modern and good quality with a well equipped kitchen which I did not use. Free Wi-Fi and a good work station means that one can work in comfort and not feel cramped.

The shower was large and powerful and the towels excellent quality. Breakfast is included but it is a bit basic but convenient. Certainly this place is a great facility right in the centre of Manchester.

Ding ding…. tour of Manchester anybody?

Whenever I visit a new city I always try to do an open top bus tour… it’s a fantastic way to get your bearings and make a note of things to go back and see later! So here at Roomzzz we were very excited to learn that Manchester now has it’s very own tour… so if you are staying in our city centre hotel in Manchester why not take a trip around the city on the bus… the tours take in the city’s landmarks such as the Town Hall, Eastlands and Old Trafford, MediaCity, Chinatown and more!

Well in our search to bring you the best of things going on across the country I came across this…. ‘Back Le Bid’ – a campaign to hold a stage of the Tour de France in Yorkshire in 2016! 

The Tour de France is an annual bike race, covering more than 3,600 kilometres (2,200 mi) and lasts three weeks. The race is broken into day-long segments, called stages and the idea is that for 2016 one of these stages will be held in Yorkshire!
This bid already has the backing of some of cycling’s big names – Mark Cavendish and Ben Swift to name a couple…
Wow…. imagine if the world’s largest sporting event came through the county? Here at Roomzzz we would be perfectly placed to get the best roadside view… our accommodation in Leeds provides the best base to explore Yorkshire!
If you’d like to help Yorkshire win Le Bid you can show your backing here…. http://www.yorkshire.com/back-the-bid

Great views of Newcastle – #5

The Tyne Bridge is a defining symbol of Tyneside – a through arch bridge over the River Tyne which links Newcastle and Gateshead. When it was built in 1928 it was the world’s longest single span bridge. It is currently the tenth tallest structure in the city.
Our new Newcastle hotel is not far away from the bridge!
