Please check out the review below – thank you Mark Young – we’re glad you enjoyed your stay!
 

“Perfect in Every Way!”

Reviewed 14 November 2011 NEW

Just back from my first stay at Roomzzz Aparthotel, Manchester. It was fantastic!!
 
Car parking was very close by in the recommended car park and was discounted by the hotel. so was only £12 for an overnight.
 
On arrival we were met by a lovely receptionist, who was extremely helpful, telling us the best places to eat etc and she printed us out a map.
 
The room was brilliant!! I couldn’t believe the amount of facilities in the room. The bed was lovely and clean and comfortable. The kitchen area amazing, I couldn’t believe there was even a dishwasher in the room!! There was just nothing more you could want. The shower was great, with lovely unusual fittings in the bathroom. The TV and free computer were great too.
 
There was a grab and go breakfast, which was great…..pastries, fruit, tea and all kinds of coffee. Took some back to the room and had it there.
 
On checking out the receptionist asked us if we wanted to take any of the breakfast things with us, which was lovely (we didn’t take any!!)
 
All in all an absolutely perfect stay and would not hesitate in returning and would recommend to anyone!! Thank you so much Roomzzz!! x

Manchester Bee!

Posted on: No Comments



Yesterday we asked our Manchester Facebook fans, ‘which insect is connected to Manchester?’ Someone suggested the Museum Mummy! But no the symbol of Manchester is the bee!

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!

What’s on…. Manchester!


At the end of June the third Manchester International Festival wi
ll take place, it is a cultural festival of original new work and musical delights from 30th June – 17th July and has even inspired a fringe event call Not Part Of.

The festival itself will see a whole host of artists from Bjork, Damon Albarn, Snoop Dogg through to a play starring Victoria Wood. There are two weeks of delights to experience so why not give us a call on 0844 488 4999 and make your visit to Manchester even better with a stay in Roomzzz!

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.

Fodder… Part I

Now it if the image above looks familiar to you… if this is how your dining table at home is more commonly seen, then you’ll be looking for some recommendations on food and where to eat out this weekend and over the Spring Bank Holiday… why not treat yourself to a foodie break?

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!

You can then carry all your finds back to Roomzzz and prepare a feast in our fully equipped kitchens

So far so good…

Yesterday we announced our new Friday Favourites competition and we’ve had a fantastic response, maybe it’s the sunshine but many of you are in the mood for a night away and have been tapping away to tell us about your favourite Roomzzz things!
