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

Happy April….

Oh it’s sooo fantastic to be in April…. didn’t March go on for ever? It’s a little bit rainy here today but even that can’t get us down… after all, all the lovely spring flowers will be

thirsty by now!

So it’s April, it’s Mothering Sunday this weekend and it’s the start of our April Showers promotion…. So what three good things could you do this weekend? Well firstly of course you could book into Roomzzz in either Leeds or Manchester - remember we have three hotels in Leeds… and you could stay in the lap of luxury in any one of them…secondly if you’re in Leeds you could book in for a round of golf, with our fabulous Stay and Play offer in conjunction with Wike Ridge Golf Course, thirdly you could go to Facebook and ‘like’ Leeds and Manchester to be in with a chance to win our Friday Faves competition of a night on us in Leeds City West next Friday!

You see good things really do come in threes…..

Red carpets & champagne

The coast near Cannes is far removed from the canals and Corn Exchange of Leeds. But at this time of year they feel a little closer, what with Yorkshire’s biggest city hosting the UK’s third largest International Film Festival at the moment.

We already pointed you to Leeds’ 24th cinematic celebration on this blog, but now the time has finally arrived we couldn’t help but give another heads up. After all, it’s not just the final major European movie event of the year, it’s also widely regarded as the best audience focused event in the country. So there’s no better time to book a short break in this fine city.

Events began last week, with Tom Hooper’s acclaimed George IV biopic, The King’s Speech. A sell out well before the screening, if you missed the chance to get tickets, then perhaps booking accomodation in Leeds for the weekend of November 20th is a good idea. A second showing will take place at Hyde Park Picture House, conveniently located close to Roomzzz City West.

Away from historic dramas, and onto more oddball antics, the critically lauded Cravendale-style animation, A Town Called Panic, has its final moment of glory on Tuesday November 9th, at Leeds Town Hall. We highly recommend this film, after all, the story- which follows madcap characters on the hunt for the perfect home- is close to our hearts.

Other highlights over the next seven days include Stanley Kubrick’s 50-years-on-and-still-hilarious Dr Strangelove, or How I Learnt to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb, which needs little introduction before it screens tonight and Wednesday. And further reasons to visit this week can be found in Anton ‘Control’ Corbijin’s eagerly anticipated George Clooney thriller, The American. You can catch that on Thursday 11th and Saturday 13th, again at Hyde Park Picture House.

Our serviced apartments offer the ideal accomodation to use as a base while taking in your selection from the hundreds of screenings taking place during this 18 day showcase. Both Roomzzz sites are close to all city centre and district venues, so simply download a festival programme, then contact Roomzzz Central Reservations and turn your cinematic stay into a luxury city break.
