Our Friday Treasure Hunt this week sees us back in Manchester! Our lucky winner will get themselves a night in our fabulous Manchester city centre hotel...
We know our guests love this hotel as much as we do… did you see Monday’s blog? But what makes it soooo special?
48 individual apartments fully fitted for the practicalities of daily life, finished with a subtle suggestion of the Orient inspired by the bustle of nearby Chinatown. As you’d expect from a luxury hotel, there’s every concession to contemporary style and comfort.
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.
So how do you get to take part in our Treasure Hunt? Answer today’s question and then keep an eye on our blog tomorrow and Friday and you will pick up the rest of the clues, which will lead you to the Treasure… post your answer on our Facebook pages for Leeds or Manchester along with the phrase…”I am a Roomzzz Treasure Hunter and my answer is….” all the right answers will be placed in a pot and the lucky winner will be drawn at random!
So – onto today’s clue…
How many stars did SusanOuk award to Manchester Roomzzz on Trip Advisor?
Last chance people! Make sure you don’t lose out…
Staff were very helpful at reception.
Would stay again for sure.
Stayed November 2011, travelled with family
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!
The free WiFi was fabulous I used my iPhone and Facetime to phone home and show my little boy what a fabulous room I was staying in – technology at its finest!
My list for a hotel room ( having done too many business trips) was short 1. decent bed, 2. TV and 3. working shower…. Roomzzz blew that list out of the water… other hotels you need to step up your game there is a new breed coming for your business.
The bed was amazing all the usual home from home luxuries pillows, throws etc. Upstairs (yes I had an upstairs) loo very handy as I didn’t fancy tackling the spiral stairs half asleep!
Flat screen TV on both floors.
Shower big enough for 4 and a square roll top bath with TV in the wall!
Kitchenette with everything needed including dishwasher and dishwasher tablet…
We have family in Manchester and have already decided for future overnight visits to scrap our usual hotel and stay with you guys instead – I will definitely be signing up for a loyalty card.
Not long now until the start of Manchester Pride…. from the 19th – 29th August the city will see a fabulous ‘celebration of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender life!’
This year the event is celebrating its 21st birthday and will be doing so in style! There’s everything from sport to arts, film to heritage, entertainment and partying with a bigger events programme than ever before and, of course, the Big Weekend over the August Bank Holiday.
19th – 25th is the fringe festival – celebrating LGBT life through art, sports, culture and much more.
27th August sees the big parade take to the streets of Manchester with over 100 floats travelling through the city.
26th – 29th is THE BIG WEEKEND – bank holiday and the perfect party – 71 hours and the hilight of the festival!
If you’re heading to Manchester for the celebrations then why not stay with us here at Roomzzz…? We’re right on the edge of the village, close to the party… you won’t miss a thing! And with our luxurious apartments being fully kitted out as a home from home… you can chill out into the bargain!
Roomzzz has been in the press a bit during the last week!
Company Magazine wrote this lovely review about us:
“On a recent trip to Manchester, we stayed at Roomzzz Manchester. It’s housed in a Grade II listed cotton warehouse, boasting high ceilings, long windows, soaring interior spaces and grand Victorian character by the yard.
As you’d expect from a luxury hotel, there’s every concession to contemporary style and comfort with 48 individual apartments to choose from – from compact studios to spacious suites – even a i-mac iand the i-home in every room (perfect for charing your iphone!)
Each one fully fitted for the practicalities of daily life; each one finished with a subtle suggestion of the Orient inspired by the bustle of nearby Chinatown.
It’s easily reached from Manchester Piccadilly railway station, and with Piccadilly Gardens just a few blocks away, the Northern Quarter beyond, Manchester Central and Deansgate’s shopping to the north-west, you’re never far from the heartbeat of this vibrant 21st Century metropolis. So perfect for a girlie weekend of shopping and partying!!!”

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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
