Yesterday we asked you what you were planning to do with the extra hour of daylight when the clocks spring forward this weekend… we had so much fun discussing this amongst ourselves that we thought we’d encourage the rest of you some more and so our Friday faves this week has a different theme.
Yes all you have to do to win a night in Leeds City West on us this Friday the 25th March* is tell us what you plan to do with the extra hour of daylight post this on our new Facebook page and we will pick a winner tomorrow!
One thing you could do is visit the Tutankhamun exhibition being displayed at the Trafford Centre – it’s your last chance this weekend. The story of Tutankhamun, the ancient Egyptian ‘boy king’, has captivated audiences around the world and now you can experience it first hand in Manchester.
Tutankhmun: His Tomb and His Treasures promises to take you on a fascinating journey through time to discover the relics of a forgotten tomb, only uncovered in in 1922 by archaeologist Howard Carter.
Most of Tutankhamun’s treasures are held in the Egyptian National Museum in Cairo and his tomb and mummy are preserved in the Valley of Kings, making this new exhibition a unique opportunity to experience the legendary tomb in what the organisers call ‘virtual archaeology’
PS We now have two brand new Facebook pages – don’t forget to visit them and recommend us!
*The Prize. 1 night at Leeds City West for 2 guests. Room type will be allocated on arrival. T&Cs apply.

All for now…
Don’t you find sometimes that even a trip to the supermarket for a few bits can suddenly turn into a £40 shop when all you needed was a pint of milk and some bread.
Which leads us to think about what can you actually purchase for £39 that is really any good? You know – something that really gives you the feeling of value and satisfaction.
For those thrifty shoppers amongst us we know that hitting the vintage shops and fairs can always be a feel good spend…as least we know clothes won’t disintegrate in the first wash.
But what else is feeeeel real good?… Shoes? Dinner? A Facial?
You know where we are going with this of course… as we know that for the fine price of £39 during April and into May (1st April – 8th May) you can stay at a Roomzzz Aparthotel – luxury hotel accommodation in Leeds and Manchester for a minuscule sum. If you had your ear to the ground yesterday you would have heard the buzz about our ‘Happy April Holidays’
We’re talking real luxury here which will lead to a fabulous sense of feel good satisfaction and maybe a bit of smugness as well.
So that’s our thought of the day…Value. For what is promising to be a dare we say it sunny day? Get your thinking caps on!
Comments on what you have found for £39 recently posted on our Facebook page please!! And don’t forget to book!
A few of our favourite things…
We’re on the look out for your stories about your favourite things about staying at Roomzzz Aparthotel.

We’d like to think that we have thought of everything in our luxury boutique apartments and suites… our guests tell us we have got it spot on… but what makes us their favourite place?
We certainly know what floats our boat… personally it’s the thought of having a super cool mac to play with and a lovely big pocket sprung mattress to you know… sleep on… !
Here’s what a couple of guests have said make Roomzzz Aparthotel in Leeds and Manchester their fav place to stay.
Gorgeous. Spot on. The apartments are bigger than a hotel room. More light, more space, more furniture and a kitchen. Friendly reception staff.
Well impressed, this place surpassed my best expectations, quirky decor etc. I attended a conference this week in Leeds and WOW, both myself and my colleague were extremely pleased with the comfort, decor and provision at Roomzzz. Stay here, I’m specifically looking to attend some more work functions in Leeds so that I can!
Fantastic place to stay. Very modern stylish and really well appointed. Everything was sparkling clean. Love the concept of short stay self catering serviced apartments.

Who was it that introduced us to mini breaks? Ah yes…
Immortalised by Bridget Jones, the “mini-break” has become the epitome of the romantic weekend… we say any weekend counts… romantic is just a (desirable?) bonus.
As purveyors of rather mighty fine mini breaks ourselves Roomzzz has it covered – on location (we are the des res for accommodation in Manchester and Leeds) and we’re told we are perfect, excellent and gorgeous – all boxes ticked then.
We’re on the look out for your top mini break stories – maybe you’ve stayed with us or are planning a boutique break of breathtaking proportions. Drop us a line on our Facebook page about your best stays with us and we’ll give you insiders know how to booking the ultimate mini break with us for the price savvy.
Our top tip of the day? It’s Tuesday… get planning your luxury hotel mini break weekend!
Here at Roomzzz HQ we’re always on the ‘think’ to hatch plans to keep our multitude of guests feeling the happiness… so with that in mind we’ve got two particularly fabulous (and unexpected) treats coming right up.
We’ll be giving fans of our Facebook page sneak previews and we’ll drop you a hint or three along the way… (to keep it exciting)
Our top tip of the day: Always expect the unexpected – just like in our apartments! The nice hotel inspector from The Times
