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!

A poem about Roomzzz by Stacey Griffiths!




Check out this ditty written for us on our Leeds Facebook page by Stacey Griffiths… WE ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT!

I Love the Location of all the Roomzzz its perfect for all my needs

Whether its shopping, eating or partying its never a far walk in heels

I Love the kitchen and how my boyfriend cooks

While I relax in the tub with bubbles and a book

The beds are super comfy I never want to wake
…
The only thing to wake me would be the smell of Stoke’s cheese oatcakes

I Love the cool and trendy imac with the free wifi

I get to write on Roomzzz Facebook and will always get a reply

I Love it when you’re hungry and in a hurry to spend to some dough’

Then all you need to do is pick up the free Grab & Go

I love the choice of different rooms for all of my friends
We all like to get ready together and have a Fab weekend
I love the friendly staff who always welcome you in
Whether your checking in or out they’ll always be with you in 1 min
I defini…tely love the price for this fabulous stay,
It’s perfect in every way, and that’s not just a cliché
I love how it reminds me of home

In fact that’s how I’ll end this ode, Roomzzz is my home from home

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.

And as you’d expect, every apartment is fully kitted out with all mod-cons such as an Apple Mac, an integrated safe and a widescreen LCD TV.

A pantry full of living essentials like toiletries, milk and ready meals is available in Reception. Whatever you do, the convenience doesn’t just stop there.

You can choose which of these fabulous locations you’d like to stay in… subject to availability of course but other than that it’s up to you!

Fodder… Part I

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

What’s on Manchester….


Yesterday I focussed on what you can do in Leeds and Yorkshire throughout April and over those lovely bank holidays we’re getting! Now today as I was rumaging through the internet to look at Manchester I found a list of the best things you can do free of charge… as you know we love luxury but we also go wild for a bargain so I thought I would share this list with you!
  1. John Rylands Library – A gothic sandstone building on Deansgate recently juxtaposed with a clever modern visitor centre. This fabulous legacy of Cottonopolis was commissioned by Cuban-born Enriqueta Rylands in memory of her philanthropist textile manufacturer husband. There’s more about Manchester’s first multi-millionaire and some fascinating changing exhibitions in the cathedral-like public reading rooms.

  1. Royal Northern College of Music – The only UK conservatoire to be a centre for excellence in teaching and learning, but you can still hear the talented students play for free! Orchestral performances take place in the late-60s concert hall, while the RNCM’s best-kept secret is their Wednesday-lunchtime recitals by soloists and smaller ensembles in the calming and charming setting of St Ann’s Church.

  2. Heaton Park – Manchester’s biggest green space, with lovely views both back over town and out to the Pennines. There’s plenty to do whatever your age: a well-equipped children’s playground; rowing boats, woodland walks and cycle paths; even a grand 18th-century mansion and farm. It’s also home to beekeepers, astronomers, trolley-bus enthusiasts and the Commonwealth Bowling Club.

  3. City Airport – Formerly known as Barton Aerodrome, this was the UK’s first purpose-built municipal airport and it’s still in action today. Sit in the beer garden and watch small planes bump excitedly along the grassy runway as they take off and land, and climb up the Art Deco control tower that dates from 1933.

  1. Whitworth Art Gallery – There’s always something worth seeing at this gallery, part of Manchester University; not least the soon-to-be developed building and its parkside location. Recent highlights have been the Subversive Spaces surrealism show, the American Scene prints exhibition and Walls Are Talking, and the varied event programme includes related talks held in the “secret” lecture theatre.
