Oooo think October might be almost my favourite month of the year… what do you think? Leaves on the ground – jumpers out again, nice snuggly boots? What’s not to love…? OK so it gets dark earlier but only for six months!
We thought we’d take a look at what’s happening around Yorkshire in the hope that we can tempt you into one of our fabulous Leeds establishments…
1st – 2nd October – UK Pro Surf Event in Scarborough – Amazing surfing plus skateboarding, BMX & extreme sports. Also enjoy live music, DJ’s, performances, drive-in movies and more. This is an Xtreme sports extravaganza not to be missed.
Steam Gala on the Worth Valley Railway – made famous by the film the Railway Children – in Howarth – and let’s not forget the Bronte connection!
The Great Yorkshire Run takes place in Sheffield on the 9th October.
Illuminating York Festival from 26th – 29th October sees the annual digital arts and lighting festival which invites visitors and residents alike to rediscover York in a new light!
And then we have a journey to the dark side for a terrifyingly entertaining night to remember. For Five Nights only York Maze becomes your worst nightmare. Hallowscream, is an advance ticket only night time event for teenagers and adults who should know better – from the 26th – 30th October.

I like Roomzzz because… The website looks amazing. I have never stayed in a Roomzzz hotel yet and want to see if the real thing matches the warm images online. I have a friend in Leeds that has been inviting me up to see his new Coffee Shop so this would be a great opportunity to catch up with a very dear friend.
We love the amount of space you get in the rooms, and of course having a tv in the bathroom – it makes it feel really luxurious!
I figured rather than lavishing a thousand words of praise on your fantastic establishments I ought to cut to the chase…ROOMZZZ IS ACE FOR A SMILE ON YOUR FACE
I just love how its sooo modern and clean very impressive as you walk in your room we had our daughteres 18 th in the Leeds one we had a fantastic break the staff were lovely to we had a bit of confusion with our rooms booked and they were great …I would just love to go back asap were not having a holiday this year and a weekend would be just great x
I am a Leeds girl through and through but have lived in Newcastle now for 7 years. One thing I can say that Newcastle is missing is a Roomzzz! I am coming back to Leeds this weekend for a reunion with some old friends with my boyfriend, who has no yet been introduced properly to the Leeds culture. Roomzzz Leeds is stylish and highlights the cosmopolitan vibe of the place I call home and will certainly give a Geordie something to talk about. Definitely be singing your praises back in Newcastle.
I love Roomzzz because once you’re in your room it’s like your own private little world…!

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?
