FAST TRACK EXPANSION VICTORY ACHIEVED AS ROOMZZZ APARTHOTEL WELCOMES NEWCASTLE ON BOARD

“Don’t hesitate – book!” – I don’t think we could put it better ourselves! It’s what clmswallow wrote about our Manchester city centre hotel on Tripadvisor…

I travel to Manchester 4-5 times a year for work and I will always stay at Roomzzz and not bother looking at other accommodation options because it meets all of my requirements – central, secure parking very nearby, value for money and great customer service provided by the lovely reception staff.

Because work are usually paying I tend to book the cheapest rooms but they are by no means basic. I don’t know of any other hotel where you can stay in such luxurious surroundings at such a low price.

This weekend however I was in Manchester with my boyfriend so we booked The Maxima Suite. If you’re thinking about treating a loved one to a romantic weekend away or just like a bit of extra space then this is the room for you.

Down stairs you’ll find:

A kitchen area complete with dish washer, cutlery, hob, pans, plates – basically everything you would need if you were planning to cook and eat in. The hotel have a pantry in reception so you can buy pizzas, curry sauces, soft drinks etc
A large living space with a couple of sofa’s, a desk, iMac, iPod docking station and a large flat screen TV mounted on the wall
A down stairs bathroom with a rain fall shower and a decent sized bath tub with a TV built into the wall (a great touch!)

And then up a spiral staircase you’ll find your bedroom:

A huge bed
Another toilet so you don’t have to navigate the stairs at night
And a third TV

The rooms at Roomzzz are modern, light and clean.

The grab and go breakfast is great – coffee’s, juices, fruit and freshly baked pastries.

My only small gripe is the outside noise but that comes with staying at any City centre hotel. My boyfriend slept through it but the odd siren or loud groups of people have disturbed my sleep when staying here but not enough for me not to book again but I think it’s something the light sleepers amongst you may want to know about.

Make a reservation, I don’t think you’ll be disappointed.

We have stayed for 3 nights in this apart hotel and it was a great experience! The room was very clean and neat and the bed was comfy. Also, the kitchenette had everything including a wok, which made cooking easier and faster. The grab and go breakfast included fresh croissants, sweet pastries and fresh fruit which is also very convenient if you’re in a rush! … The apple tv installed in the room was great, perfect for checking out the weather and news online :)

The only downside is that the parquet floors are a bit squeaky and noisy when you step on them. But it is only a minor issue.

Would definitely stay in this hotel next time I visit Manchester!

Usually stay in hotels when away, but loved this apartment hotel. The facilities in the room were excellent, we had the basic studio apartment and had everything we needed. I real mini home from home. Everything was clean, and the bed was lovely and soft. My only complaintwas the noise, we could hear the floor boards squeaking when people walked around in the apartment upstairs, also the doors on the other rooms banged very loud, and woke me in the morning.

My wife and I stayed for one night on a city weekend break while dropping our daughter at University. We loved the city centre (very upmarket shopping and nicely priced restaurants) and this aparthotel blew us away. A large modern room with excellent facilities inc fridge, wasing machine and dishwasher. As it happens, we didnt need them but the room was very clean with modern furnishings. There is no breakfast but good coffee, pastries and fruit juice are available in the lobby. We would definitely stay again.

This is our 3rd stay in a year and it was great to be welcomed by Keith again who has always made our stay special. My 13 year old daughter and I stayed on Friday 9 September for a birthday treat to go to The Royal Exchange. She loved everything about the Liberty Suite which had a fantastic bank of large windows around the corner of the building. The view was brilliant and they were all shuttered with black out blinds and sound proofing. There was no noise from the street below. Nearby are loads of mini supermarkets so we made use of the kitchen facilities and it was a bit of a call whether to go to the theatre we were enjoying the room so much. Then of course the hot chocolate machine in the lobby was truly a 13year old’s dream.

On returning we watched a film and there was no noise from other rooms so I wonder about the reviews mentioning noise as the hotel was very busy. Thank you to Keith who made us feel again like valued regular customers. We will be ringing this Friday hoping for a cancellation on Saturday 17th. Fingers crossed.

 
Room Tip: All the rooms are fabulous but if your want views of the city ask for a room on the 2nd 3rd or 4th floors. The fifth floor rooms are still great and have loads of velux windows.

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!


Big towns, bright stars

Posted on: No Comments


Both cities we operate in are the largest England’s northern counties have to offer. And, as such, spend plenty of time in the public eye.

Boasting quality accommodation in Manchester, and the same unique combination of serviced apartments and boutique hotels in Leeds, our doors have had their fair share of celebrity names walk through them. But last week our attention was focused on the stars lining up at the National Television Awards in London.

This year saw the BBC’s Waterloo Road pick up Best Drama. It’s set in Rochdale, a few miles from Roomzzz Aparthotel – Manchester City, making us more than a little proud. And, although somewhat further away, Ant & Dec continued to represent the North on a big scale, collecting the coveted Best Entertainment Presenter award for a tenth time.

Past victors have included esteemed Yorkshire-men, such as Michael Parkinson, Manchester-born icons like John Thaw, and Ricky Tomlinson, a latter-day Lancastrian legend. And, programme wise, the historic Shires have taken home silverware thanks to Last of the Summer Wine, Coronation Street and Cold Feet to name but three.

Leeds, Manchester, and their surrounding areas all have established histories when it comes to filming. The latter has given us small screen memories in the shape of This Life, with Looking For Eric, Alfie, 24 Hour Party People and Marvel’s forthcoming Captain America amongst the recent feature films to use its streets. And, as for the former, mentioning Spooks, Five Days, The Damned United and the acclaimed Red Riding trilogy proves it rivals that neighbour over the hills.

So, next time you’re thinking of these fair towns, don’t leave it at shopping, clubs, food and sport. You could run into a host of personalities when perusing a boutique, or queuing at the bar, so why not give yourself a little more time by booking an overnight stay. Our centrally located sites offer unrivalled access to all the amenities you, and countless familiar faces want to make the most of, so you never know who the person in the Roomzzz next door could be.
