The Manchester bee symbol was adopted during the industrial revolution, a revolution that Manchester was at the heart of. The bee denotes Mancunians hard work and graft during this era and Manchester being a hive of activity in the 19th century. A mosaic hive of bees is depicted on flooring in the Manchester Town Hall.
Bees are known are hard workers with a vital role to play in the ecosystem and the ability for humans and life forms to survive by pollinating crops. The allegorical link to bees relates that during this era, Manchester was a vital economic centre for Britain and many Mancunians were employed in a range of jobs in the city.
Although it is unverifiable, the idiom busy bee may have originated or at least been popularised as a result of Manchester’s adoption of the bee symbol.
The architecture of our Manchester Roomzzz is testament to this era, see photograph below!

Manchester Roomzzz is a stunning apart hotel with all the usual Roomzzz benefits and luxuries…48 individual apartments fully fitted for the practicalities of daily life, finished with a subtle suggestion of the Orient inspired by the bustle of nearby Chinatown. As you’d expect from a luxury hotel, there’s every concession to contemporary style and comfort.
Manchester Central convention complex for conference and exhibitions and the Northern Quarter – the home of fashion outlets, art galleries and quirky boutique shops are all within walking distance, and the Trafford Centre is less than 6 miles away, its ideal for those wanting to experience the true spirit of this vivacious city. We’re easily reached from Manchester Piccadilly railway station, and with Piccadilly Gardens just a few blocks away, and the Manchester Evening News (MEN) Arena is less than a mile away, you’re never far from the heartbeat of this vibrant 21st Century metropolis.
Award wining Grade II listed building boasts high ceilings, long windows, soaring interior spaces, and kitchens equipped with Smeg appliances. This is the height of luxury, by design.
Now when you stay at Roomzzz you have a couple of ways you can achieve this…. you can take the ‘easy’ option and visit a local restaurant OR remember that in our apart hotels you could spend your afternoon searching out ingredients in the vicinity and then cook up a storm with your partners in crime… If you’re with us for the entire weekend – why not do both? Whether you are staying in a hotel in Leeds city centre or Manchester city centre you have a whole world of delights to discover whichever option you choose!
Now in Leeds we have the famous Kirkgate Market…. this is the market where Mr Marks and Mr Spencer had their first stall and if you’ve never been it’s worth a trip to Leeds for. There are over 800 market stalls with separate sections for meat, fish and vegetables undercover and a large outdoor area – from the mundane to the exotic shopping for food here really is an experience!
