We’ve had some fantastic reviews again this week… for Manchester this time, read them all below:-
Touristman from London stayed with us this month and what a great comment:-
“This is my place in Manchester”
Reviewed 11 October 2011
Stayed in the hotel three times, and believe me this is the best hotel in Manchester. In fact they are the reason I signed with tripadvisor. The staffs are absolutely friendly and helpful. The location is spot on in the heart of the city centre, a walking distance to Piccadilly train station and the city centre. It is the only hotel that you get value for money, spacious stylish rooms, free WI-FI, Apple PC, large flat TV, kitchenette and complimentary breakfast, what do you need more???!!
A big thank you for the hotel staff and their manager

 ”Gorgeous Aparthotel”
5 of 5 starsI stayed here with my husband in Mid October 2011 when we came to Manchester to watch Peter Kay at the M.E.N. Roomzzz aparthotel is in a fantastic location next to Chinatown and has great travel links to the arena with St Peter’s Square Metrolink stop only a couple of minutes walk away.We stayed in the Maxima suite on the 5th floor and the room was gorgeous.It was very spacious and spotlessly clean.The huge bed was so comfortable and the bath was amazing,i filled it with bubbles and enjoyed pampering myself whilst getting ready to go out.
The staff could not have been more helpful if they tried,everyone we came into contact with was friendly and the service that we recieved was outstanding.We will certainly be returning in the future and are already planning our next visit.
 
There were only two minor things that i would mention,the spiral staircase in the room was VERY noisy, it creaked,squeaked and groaned as soon as you set foot on it so disturbed anyone who was still in bed if you wanted to go downstairs first in the morning or get up in the middle of the night for a glass of water.From a female point of view i really missed having a dressing table.The hairdryer in the bathroom was great but trying to put make up on in the small area around the sink wasn’t very comfortable or practical.In the end we moved the dining table up to to the full length mirror next to the staircase.All a bit of a faff really and something that could be easily rectified with the inclusion of a useable mirror close to the desk used for the iMac,that way the desk could double as a dressing table.This would solve what i found to be the biggest problem with the room.

Another week dawns and it’s review day again!
Dianne H from Nottingham stayed in Leeds City:-
5 of 5 starsReviewed 11 September 2011 
booked a studio , got the top floor with a balcony,room was clean bright and very modern. the room had i-pod dock, tv and computer, bathroom had a fab shower and the large mirror in there was heated so it didn’t steam up, kitchen has everything you would need. Did not have the grab and go breakfast but did use the free coffee machine in the reception a lot, this place is a short taxi ride from the coach station and cost us only 4 pounds, the train station is even closer, all the bars, clubs and restaurants are 2 minutes round the corner. This is a fab place at fab prices, would recommend to anyone, just booked Roomzzz at Manchester for october, give this place a try , you will love it … 
Sarah from Leeds booked family in for a visit:-
5 of 5 starsReviewed 6 September 2011 
I booked this hotel for my father who came up from the midlands. We were both extremely impressed with his apartment and we both agreed that Roomzzz is a good find and offered more flexibility than hotels which he has stayed in previously.
The staff were friendly and there is a nice relaxed atmosphere, I am sure we will be back in the future.

If I won the Friday Favourites competition and had a FREE night to spend in Manchester I would check out the Manchester Food & Drink Festival programme and choose something delicious to attend!

The 14th Manchester Food & Drink Festival takes place on Albert Square and across the region from 7th – 17th October 2011. I think I’ll definitely have to check out the Chocolate Festival on the 15th and 16th in Cathedral Square!

Urban Countryside

Posted on: No Comments


Hebden Bridge is equidistant from Manchester and Leeds. It just won Best Town in Britain & Ireland at the Urbanism Awards, and so we felt obliged to look into some other jewels close to these crowing cities.

Manchester gave birth to what was, technically, the world’s original suburb, Victoria Park. Just up the road you can find one of our hotels in Manchester, and with it the perfect combination of serviced apartment and luxury hotel – ideal for any city break. But further out of town there are countless destinations well worth a day trip.

And the same applies on the other side of the hills, where we can offer unique hotels in Leeds city centre. Our Leeds accommodation offers an ideal base from which to explore outlying secrets. So when you arrive for that short break drop your bags off in the apartment and relax. Then head out to discover the places that prove it’s not all about bright lights and wide roads….

Within an hour of Leeds

Yeadon

Somewhere so close to an international airport is rarely this idyllic. Introducing Yeadon, a town-planning anomaly. From the somewhat oversized, prestigious town hall (originally planned for Guiseley) to the cobbled, Hovis-esque streets, it truly is a place unto its own.

Knaresborough

Just around the corner from Harrogate, Knaresborough is amongst the county’s most historic settlements. Toss a coin to make a wish at Mother Shipton’s Cave & Petrifying Well, England’s oldest tourist attraction, or enjoy a lackadaisical afternoon boating on the River Nidd.

Skipton

Skipton is the best of old and new Yorkshire combined. Arrive on busy market day and peruse the famous selection of flower and food stalls, then take in the castle- a true Civil War survivor. Once done, head for Craven Court to discover a goldmine of curiosity and bargain shops.

Within an hour of Manchester

Glossop

Glossop is the gateway to the Peak District, one of England’s finest corners. But the surrounding landscape isn’t the only reason to escape to this Derbyshire town. Discover the Howard Park conservation area, or explore historic Old Glossop, and the Howard Town Brewery.

Buxton

Like most spa towns, Buxton’s charm hasn’t waned since the Victorian’s were here. Enveloped by the Derbyshire Peaks, and boasting Britain’s best road for biking (the ‘Cat & Fiddle run’), if you’re not a petrol head then take a dip at the natural baths, or walk through the Goit Valley.

Saddleworth

Saddleworth is Emmerdale land, and part of the area that Lancashire and Yorkshire fought over when the two Roses were at war. Experience the age-old summer rushbearing festival, or visit in winter for a scrumptious Sunday lunch amid the oft snow-capped Pennines.
