‘LET THE LEGACY OF LUXURY LIVE ON’ HISTORIC HOUSE OPENS TODAY AS NEWCASTLE’S NEW £5M HOTEL


Super chic modern lifestyle and ultra luxe Aparthotel brand Roomzzz invite guests into ‘exquisite elite luxury’ when they open the front doors to the beautiful Friar House today under their protective custodianship ethos of ‘let the legacy of luxury live on’ as part of their £5M investment into their new location, Newcastle City.


The fifth location for Roomzzz sees an intensive restoration of one of Newcastle’s most historic and celebrated City heirloom residences which has been nurtured and brought to life back from years of neglect to be one of the North’s most exciting and luxurious new hotel experiences.


Guests will be treated to an experience of the grand stylish opulence of a majestic detached Georgian townhouse once belonging to a 19th Century ‘celebrity socialite’ Sir Robert Hopper Williamson who as Recorder of Newcastle and chancellor of Durham was amongst the elite of the North East and one of the most important men in the area. Sir Robert had invested heavily into his family home ensuring an eloquently designed interior and a spectacular exterior fitting to his social standing which still impresses today as it stands serenely amongst daily life on Clavering Place.


Roomzzz have gone to great lengths to channel the heady fine beauty of classic Georgian elegance and its combined grace and prestige of the era with subtle heritage touches from the area and lashings of carefully restored original features, including a grand stair and large Venetian staircase window which once looked out over extensive grounds and gardens.


Designers have combined historic significance with modern urban essentials and lifestyle ‘must-haves’ to create the ultimate hotel experience featuring 14 indulgent suites which brings back the golden age of exquisite elite living and focuses guests to concentrate on the carefree enjoyment of beautiful surrounds and luxuriating in extreme comfort.


Historic relics, curiosities and delights such as the original cast iron range, bank vaults and mysterious vaulted ceilings are found contained within the 14 suites whose layout follows the footprint of the original Friar House. Guests will experience top to toe luxe in suites complete with Apple technology, ‘best night sleep’ beds, state of the art kitchens and chic bathrooms cascading with the feel of opulence and exclusivity.


Head of Roomzzz Aparthotel UK Mark Walton comments, ‘Roomzzz Newcastle City dramatically improves luxury hotel stays in the North – there are some fabulous hotels in the area but the transformation of Friar House really raises the game…This is exquisite elite luxury but with the Roomzzz affordability factor’.

“Cosy and Stylish Aparthotel” – what a perfect description of our city centre hotel in Manchester! 

5 of 5 starsReviewed September 30, 2012 
 
We loved our room at Roomzz Aparthotel. It was big enough to feel spacious with kitchenette and bedroom cleverly designed around each other but compact enough to feel cosy, especially after a days shopping on a cool autumn day. Big comfortable bed, high celings, apple mac streaming music into the room. What more could you ask for! Located in central Manchester, less than 10 mins walk from the Arndale Shopping centre and all the surrounding shops, bars, restaurants etc. The ‘grab and go’ breakfast really is ‘grab and go’ with no plates but you can take it up to your kitchenette, which is fully stocked, and enjoy it there with your free newspaper. Cheerful, helpful staff. We’ll definitely come back!

It Really is Snow Joke…

“Nothing less then a 5/5”

This is the most perfect hotel I have seen in my journey to UK. Its close to city center, paid car park just across the street, Indian stores & hotels close by :) and above all a warm and pleasant welcome and friendly staff. What more can I say, there is even a Bargain Booze just a block away!

The stay was just perfect. Only recommendation would be to open up the HDMI ports on the 40″ TV so that we can watch movies via the laptops (on a weekend).

TripAdvisor has awarded this hotel with their “Certificate of Excellence”.
