Because this is such a great deal we do have a couple of things you should note….
Well yesterday I talked about making use of our kitchen facilities when you stay in Roomzzz, gathering goodies in Leeds market and cooking up a feast… today… the other side of the fence, same principle but a very different offering for you to enjoy… This weekend sees the opening of Australasia Restaurant in Manchester… promising to bring “A stylish but laid back slice of modern Australian life……down-under in Manchester”. The location is swanky – underneath the Armani store on Manchester’s infamous Deansgate and to enter the guests disappear inside a glass triangle and sink into the ground. The food has already received rave reviews – Manchester Confidential – no push over – had a sneak preview they commented “At Australasia there’s delight at every turn, there are mixtures of ingredients I’ve never heard of, there are techniques being used I’ve never come across.” The decor makes it stand way above the crowd, beautiful white woodwork and sumptuous booths and just the sheer size are impressive to say the least… and it doesn’t stop there… the restaurant is fully equipped with a state of the art DJ booth so you can stay until the early hours!
So why not get into Manchester, stay with us in Roomzzz and have yourself a fabulous evening in Australasia!
Ah another lovely sunny day dawns and we’re a day closer to the weekend and to our April Showers promotion!
As you will probably have heard by now April has a number of long weekends for you to enjoy and where better than the luxury and comfort of Roomzzz? All you have to do is book a room at Roomzzz Aparthotel in either Leeds or Manchester between 1st April and 8th May 2011 and we will give you a night in a luxury aparthotel from £39 per night…. what could be nicer?
But that’s not what we’re here for today… no today is the day we review our activities of choice for weekend’s in Leeds and Manchester … Now both cities are famed for their shops, they both have a branch of Harvey Nichols BUT they both also have thriving craft centres, outlets for the independent creative talent which both cities are also famed for! So why not take a turn off the high street and delve into these melting pots for truly unique jewellery, art, ceramics, furniture…. you get the picture!
In Leeds we have the Craft Centre & Design Gallery which is in Leeds City Art Gallery on The Headrow – currently they are exhibiting their annual striking ring exhibition, they research the market to include ten established jewellers and their ring designs. ‘Rings’ explores the technical and aesthetic qualities of rings and brings together a diverse collection.
In Manchester we have the fabulous Craft and Design Centre – a long established lifeline for Manchester shoppers in search of unique items – this sounds vague but I can’t do justice to the array of arts and crafts available here! The Craft Centre sits on Thomas Street which is in the Northern Quarter – Manchester’s latest area of regeneration and growth – I’d like to think that the Craft Centre acted as a magnet for this developement!
It’s hotly tipped for Oscar success on February 27th. And last Sunday it did a good job cleaning up at the BAFTAs.
Tom Hooper’s The King’s Speech is a movie title we’re all familiar with. Award season is now here, which has reminded us of when the feature opened last year’s Leeds International Film Festival, just around the corner from our innovative combination of serviced apartments and luxury hotels in Leeds.
When it came to our hometown tickets sold out weeks in advance of the screening. It’s not surprising really, as Britain’s largest regional cinema celebration was one of the first places in the world to show the film, just a fortnight after the world premiere.
The story of George V’s son, Prince Albert, and his problematic stammer has proved popular to say the least. The Director’s Guild of America voted the artistic mastermind behind it Best Director, while the equivalent body of producers rated it their Best Picture. And the accolades haven’t stopped there.
At the British Academy of Film & Television Awards it won Best Film, Best Outstanding British Film, Best Original Screenplay, Best Leading & Supporting Actors and Best Original Music amongst others. At the forthcoming American Academy Awards a further 12 categories carry The King’s Speech in and amongst the nominations, meaning it will be surprising if more room on the ensemble mantelpiece isn’t needed very soon.
From Colin Firth’s remarkable portrayal of the leading royal, to Helena Bonham Carter’s acclaimed supporting role, we’d say it’s amongst the best films we’ve seen in some time. And, better still, if you haven’t managed to see it yet there are plenty of chances to make amends at many of Leeds’ ample cinemas.
A true movie-loving city, if you’re looking for more filmy activities while you’re here then check out the Leeds Film Quarter screenings, which continue this month. Next Thursday, February 24th will see Ann Turner’s Celia shown to all interested parties in the Albert Room of the Town Hall- a truly intimate venue fit for a story heralded as Stand By Me crossed with Francois Truffaut’s masterpiece The 400 Blows.
And, further out of town, the Hyde Park Picture House, one of the oldest independents in the UK, has even more treats on offer. The Coen Brothers’ latest, True Grit, will be on until February 25th, at which point The Fighter takes over, along with Never Let Me Go, the latest feature from music video legend Mark Romanek- just in case you want to leave the comfort of your Aparthotel.
