“Another great stay”

4 of 5 stars Reviewed 21 August 2011 by Drewyorks who stayed at Leeds City:-

This is the forth time of staying at this hotel. Once again a good stay. Nice room, with good in room facilities.(Kitchen, small sofa, chair, table, desk, mac pc, tv, heated floor in the shower room etc

I do prefer having the option of a bath in my hotel room, which this hotel doesn’t have, but that’s a minor point. There’s no restaurant, but again, this isn’t important to me – and you can always eat in your room, as there’s a kitchen, and the hotel is near lots of places to eat.

The lady on reception remembered me from my last visit – and was very welcoming and friendly – great customer service. Check in was super fast and uncomplicated, as was check out – very organised, something which other hotels could learn from.

Great bonus when staying here is that you get REAL car park discount. Other hotels in Leeds offer car park discounts and in reality the discount is very small. Here, NCP charges £17.50 overnight, and you only pay £6.00 when using the voucher from the hotel.

The hotel locks it’s front door on a night (very sensible), and the usual reception staff are replaced by security staff. Sometimes people working in secruity roles don’t have a great reputation for customer service, however these guys were very friendly and polite – they are a credit to the hotel.

thanks for another good stay.

Room Tip: If you are a light sleeper, ask for a quiet room, as the hotel does front onto a busy road and a club/bar to the side.

Ffffffffffriday…. Ffffffffffavourites!

Ah…. and relax… it’s nearly the weekend and that’s not the only reason why we like Fridays – no it’s the day we ask you to tell us all your favourite things about staying at Roomzzz! This week in honour of the Bank Holiday next week we are asking you to tell us what you would do if you got to stay with us on Friday 27th… We’ve been getting some fabulous comments on our Facebook page this week…

William Kiggins told us….”Defiantly be coming back! Had a great stay with my partner, and the staff were really helpful. Even when we stumbled in at an un-godly hour they still had a smile on their faces! 10/10!”

Carol Richardson would like to “enjoy a lovely romantic time spent with my hubby …no kids allowed. x thanx very much” – we can’t argue with that one! BUT Rob Cox got in on the act with “I’d love a well deserved night away with my partner away from all the hustle and bustle of home. A nice meal and a wonderful nights sleep would be amwazing :)

We’ve been looking elsewhere on the internet too and found ourselves in Trip Advisor:

From pmymjyr in St Helens:- “We stayed 2 nights in a liberty suite. While visiting manchester to watch Ghost. Our room was amazing. So nicely styled and they had everything you might want. Full kitchen, TV, DVD and Imac!! I can’t imagine the location being any better. In fact the only thing wrong with its location is the fact that if you add the luxury of the room to the fact china town is across the road you may only be leaving the room to fetch a cheeky take away and coming back to get cozy. Style, luxury, technology, location and lots cheaper than any of its competitors. A must stay!”

Trans Pennine Trail

Morning! Have woken up trying to decide what to do over the Easter weekend, there are so many things I could do I’m having trouble whittling them down to a manageable size! Here at Roomzzz we look forward to the long weekends, we like it when our guests stay for a few nights and it got me to thinking about having the extra couple of nights for a Bank Holiday weekend and how if I was staying in Leeds I might want to pop over the hills and have a look at Manchester whilst I have the time… this then lead me to think about the many ways I could do this!

Now of course I could just jump in my car and head across the M62 but where’s the fun in that? So I thought about getting the train, there are two routes I could take one connects into Manchester Victoria – this route goes along a valley bottom through Halifax and Hebden Bridge, it’s a very pretty journey and the station itself is worth a look! The other goes to and from Piccadilly – this is the most speedy journey but is nonetheless scenic – why not get off at Stalybridge and check out their infamous buffet bar? And then there’s the less conventional way of crossing the Pennines… the Trans Pennine Trail, a path which traverses the hills from Southport in the west through Liverpool and Manchester, you can take in Sheffield, Leeds, York and Hull before finishing up on the east coast in Hornsea! Now how you do this is very much up to you… no cars though… it’s two legs, two wheels or four legs to get you along this track!


So I’m away to book a stay in Roomzzz because at the end of the day, however I get across the Pennines I can be sure that my evening will be fabulous!

Screening Leeds

Posted on: No Comments


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.

Urban Countryside

Posted on: No Comments


Hebden Bridge is equidistant from Manchester and Leeds. It just won Best Town in Britain & Ireland at the Urbanism Awards, and so we felt obliged to look into some other jewels close to these crowing cities.

Manchester gave birth to what was, technically, the world’s original suburb, Victoria Park. Just up the road you can find one of our hotels in Manchester, and with it the perfect combination of serviced apartment and luxury hotel – ideal for any city break. But further out of town there are countless destinations well worth a day trip.

And the same applies on the other side of the hills, where we can offer unique hotels in Leeds city centre. Our Leeds accommodation offers an ideal base from which to explore outlying secrets. So when you arrive for that short break drop your bags off in the apartment and relax. Then head out to discover the places that prove it’s not all about bright lights and wide roads….

Within an hour of Leeds

Yeadon

Somewhere so close to an international airport is rarely this idyllic. Introducing Yeadon, a town-planning anomaly. From the somewhat oversized, prestigious town hall (originally planned for Guiseley) to the cobbled, Hovis-esque streets, it truly is a place unto its own.

Knaresborough

Just around the corner from Harrogate, Knaresborough is amongst the county’s most historic settlements. Toss a coin to make a wish at Mother Shipton’s Cave & Petrifying Well, England’s oldest tourist attraction, or enjoy a lackadaisical afternoon boating on the River Nidd.

Skipton

Skipton is the best of old and new Yorkshire combined. Arrive on busy market day and peruse the famous selection of flower and food stalls, then take in the castle- a true Civil War survivor. Once done, head for Craven Court to discover a goldmine of curiosity and bargain shops.

Within an hour of Manchester

Glossop

Glossop is the gateway to the Peak District, one of England’s finest corners. But the surrounding landscape isn’t the only reason to escape to this Derbyshire town. Discover the Howard Park conservation area, or explore historic Old Glossop, and the Howard Town Brewery.

Buxton

Like most spa towns, Buxton’s charm hasn’t waned since the Victorian’s were here. Enveloped by the Derbyshire Peaks, and boasting Britain’s best road for biking (the ‘Cat & Fiddle run’), if you’re not a petrol head then take a dip at the natural baths, or walk through the Goit Valley.

Saddleworth

Saddleworth is Emmerdale land, and part of the area that Lancashire and Yorkshire fought over when the two Roses were at war. Experience the age-old summer rushbearing festival, or visit in winter for a scrumptious Sunday lunch amid the oft snow-capped Pennines.
