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
Also don’t forget that today is the last day of April… which means the last day you can take advantage of our Staycation offers… click here to find out more!
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.

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
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.
