“Very pleased with my stay” – is what Lucy C from Sheffield wrote following her stay with us at our city centre hotel in Manchester….
Reviewed 29 January 2012
I booked the Liberty Suite for myself and my husband over a weekend in manchester. The room was large and had a great street view of Chinatown (nice big windows so didn’t feel hemmed in). Good attention to detail and all the facilities you need for self catering. The shower room was also a good size with a nice big rain shower. There was a massive TV at the end of our bed so we could be ultra lazy!! I chose the Liberty room because of the dining table which made a difference if you want to dine in.
The Mac computer was a really good extra.
The location was great, very close to the city centre – about 10min walk from Picadilly station. The grab and go breakfast is at reception and you can grab & take it back to your room!
I forgot to take my earplugs with me but actually there wasn’t much noise at all!

The only slight gripes I had was the room took a while to heat up and being january I did feel a bit cold when I first arrived – it took a good 2 hours before it felt warm. It would have been nice to have a heated towel rail in the bathroom, & lighting suitable for applying make up (!!). But really these are minor gripes and didn’t affect my stay.

Overall I would say if you want luxury accommodation in manchester and you like the freedom of self catering this is a good value option. I would stay here again.

Room Tip: room 207 is a corner street view room with lots of windows so good view.

“Perfect Stay”
Reviewed 9 November 2011

Great location and the studio suite was clean, comfortable and had all you would need.

Staff were very helpful at reception.

Would stay again for sure.
Highly recommend.

We have stayed for 3 nights in this apart hotel and it was a great experience! The room was very clean and neat and the bed was comfy. Also, the kitchenette had everything including a wok, which made cooking easier and faster. The grab and go breakfast included fresh croissants, sweet pastries and fresh fruit which is also very convenient if you’re in a rush! … The apple tv installed in the room was great, perfect for checking out the weather and news online :)

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!

“Overall Good”
Reviewed 6 November 2011
Usually stay in hotels when away, but loved this apartment hotel. The facilities in the room were excellent, we had the basic studio apartment and had everything we needed. I real mini home from home. Everything was clean, and the bed was lovely and soft. My only complaintwas the noise, we could hear the floor boards squeaking when people walked around in the apartment upstairs, also the doors on the other rooms banged very loud, and woke me in the morning.

“Great Aparthotel”

Reviewed 3 October 2011 by Chalky 31 from Cheshire

Recommended by a friend this was a good call and a nice change from our normal hotel. Parking is very easy with the clean (not like an NCP) and well lit Q Piazza at the back. Ask for a parking voucher at the hotel, it reduced my ticket to £12.50 (3pm-8am).

We had Room 503, a suite – not in the traditional sense, but a large room anyway. Well furnished, very clean and with great facilities. The bathroom is also large, with a big rainshower.

Being an old building it is quite stuffy, and the aircon was needed. Our room was attic style and had large skylights with electric blinds. There were smaller skylights below which did open, but had no window stays to keep them open, a shame as we like fresh air in the room.

We didn’t use it, but there was a good selection of food and drink in The Pantry area at reception.

The Grab and Go breakfast was just right with juice, coffee/tea, pastries and fruit. The staff were friendly and helpful, thank you.

“Excellent option in Central Manchester”

Reviewed 4 October by Peedlewif from Orkney

This is good value apartment style accommodation with a continental breakfast thrown in. Good basic kitchen facility, huge bed, widecreen TV which is also a computer with internet access – we stayed one night but i think it would be a great option for business travellers who don’t want to eat out every night or drink alone in a bar. Very stylish, lovely reception staff, very quiet, would use again.

“Roomzzz Manchester”

Reviewed 7 October 2011 by AndyH from Bournemouth

Stayed here for two nights in early October 2011. Excellent location in city centre with a short walk to the nearest tram station. Hotel is opposite chinatown which is good for a visit or a meal. Nice greeting at reception, very friendly and helpful as first visit to Manchester. Rooms are superb with kitchenette, plenty of space, large bathroom / shower area which was excellent. As it’s in the city centre it can be noisy at night depending on what part of the hotel you’re in but you have to expect this due to the location. No on street parking but large car park right next to hotel although could be viewed as expensive but is discounted for hotel residents.

Couldn’t find too much to fault if you want a central location, good value for money and helpful staff. Free grab and go breakfast too which was good. Would definitely stay in this in another Roomzzz again.

It seems that we may have our work cut out to see everything we want to throughout the month… so what we need is a luxury pad… a home from home… somewhere we can put our feet up and relax after a day out soaking up the culture of Manchester… Handy then that here at Roomzzz that’s right up our street… it’s what we do! So if you feel the same… why not check out the events above and then give us a call on 0844 499 4888 or book online to make sure that you get the luxury you deserve!

Louise P from the West Midlands stayed in Manchester and wrote this review….
5 of 5 stars Reviewed 2 September 2011

Loved my stay at Roomzzz – only wish I hadn’t had to attend a business meal and could have stayed in my AMAZING Maxima suite all night!

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.

Room Tip: don’t forget to ask for your special rate parking for the QPark underneath

Review day…

“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.

August in Manchester… bicycles and picnics!

Remember that if you’ve joined our Royalty Club you can claim a double discount at our fabulous Roomzzz locations until the end of August!

So why not bring the family? Here’s what’s on in Manchester to tempt you…

6th August – Retro Bicycle Picnic – leaving from MOSI

7th August – Sky Ride – thousands take to the streets of Manchester on their bikes to celebrate two wheels. There are no cars in the city that day and the route is completely flexible and suitable for all!

5th – 7th August – The Manchester Picnic – Piccadilly is transformed into foodie heaven, with fantastic food stalls from all over the region. Culminating on the 7th August with the Teddy Bears Picnic – prizes for bears and the best dressed Teddy wins a family camping kit!

There’s lots of family fun going on in the city this summer and with Roomzzz Manchester being slap bang in the middle what a better place to stay? Our accommodation is perfect for family stays – you can all stay in one apartment and you can even prepare your own meals using our fully equipped kitchens!
