Check out these lovely reviews we’ve had in the last week! All these people stayed in Manchester Roomzzz…

5 of 5 stars“Will be back for sure”

Reviewed 22 August 2011

p1trick – Ireland

Stayed at Roomzzz recently for my husbands birthday and was extremely impressed.

Booked the grande studio which was spotlessly clean and had everything you would need for a weekend away. All the staff at reception were extremely helpfull especially Paris who worked the night shift .We will definitely be back.Only small negative is that the walls of our room(309) seemed a little thin as you could hear the guests in the room next door speaking to each other but it didn’t keep us awake at night. I have already recommended it to all my family.

5 of 5 stars“Ultra modern hotel at affordable prices”

Reviewed 22 August 2011

Manxie 26 – Isle of Man

Our room was gorgeous, was like staying in a rented ultra modern apartment. The shower we had in our room could probably have fitted 5 people in it! We had the croissants from the grab and go breakfast which were handy to take whilst walking to the tourist sights. Only 5-10 minute walk to the shops/bars/restaurants. Would stay again!

5 of 5 stars“Spacious room!!”

Reviewed 25 August 2011

Lynette07 Shanghai

As I booked the whole journey with lovely B&Bs, to be honest I really was not certain when came to a… hotel.

Well, I worried too much : )

You cannot imagine how big the room & bathroom is! Oh of course cannot forget the lovely MAC in the room, nice.

Only the breakfast is not so competitive, but no biggy, there are plenty of cafes nearby.

FREE things in Manchester….

Posted on: No Comments
Earlier in the year we published a blog about the great FREE things you can do in Manchester…. as we’re nearing the end of the school holidays we thought you might appreciate this list again! Just think…. if you won Friday Favourites you could come to Manchester and do all these things without spending a penny! OR would give you more to spend in the shops!
  1. 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.
  1. 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.
  2. 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. 
  3. 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.
  1. 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.

If you’ve not taken part in Friday Favourites…. you just need to ‘like’ our facebook pages for Leeds and Manchester – tell us what you like about Roomzzz, we’ll be making our winning choice tomorrow…. so get your bags packed and ready as it could be you!

Manchester born and fed…

If I won the Friday Favourites competition and had a FREE night to spend in Manchester I would check out the Manchester Food & Drink Festival programme and choose something delicious to attend!

The 14th Manchester Food & Drink Festival takes place on Albert Square and across the region from 7th – 17th October 2011. I think I’ll definitely have to check out the Chocolate Festival on the 15th and 16th in Cathedral Square! Featuring the world’s first ever bean-to-bar chocolate factory, talks, displays & workshops; a chance to meet cocoa growers and sample a big yummy chocolate market!

There are lots of delicious events around the city and events are being announced all the time… check out for more details… you can also vote for your favourite bars, restaurants and coffee shops in the Awards!

PS Don’t forget that even if you don’t win the FREE night – our Royalty Club Members get discount all year round! It’s free to join and you get a minimum 10% discount…

Join our club for double discount August!

Quite a few new people have liked our Facebook page and we want to tell them about the great deals they can get from Roomzzz.

Things to do in Yorkshire….

Now if you’re taking advantage of our summer double discount offer and heading to Leeds then you’ll want to know where to go… what to see… what’s on… Not only do you have a fantastic city to explore but you can also head out into the wider countryside!

One of our most favourite places EVER is Yorkshire Sculpture Park, located just off junction 38 of the M1. 500 acres of parkland which provide an amazing backdrop to the sculptures which are exhibited here, there’s an indoor centre with 5 galleries, cafe and shop too but the best thing about this place is the outdoor space, specially designed to display the exhibits by some of the leading artists of the 20th century.

The park houses permanent sculptures and also hosts a range of exhibitions throughout the year, this summer you need to see the gigantic wire heads by Jaume Plensa, truly spectacular!

For more information on Yorkshire Sculpture Park you can go to

Don’t forget to book your room with us in Leeds to make sure your trip is a true staycation… and make sure you sign up for your Royalty Card too… you’ll get a minimum of 20% discount throughout August!

I am getting giddy for my stay tomorrow I love Roomzzz it’s so much nicer than hotels, ideal location to shops, china town, theatres, city centre and staggering distance back after a few drinks, the apple mac to plan your day/night and check facebook a superb little extra, nothing more for me to say other than I love Roomzzz and the homely feel

Matteo Noris
I am an Italian student in Manchester. I stayed at Manchester Roomzzz for two nights when my dad came to visit me. I discovered it walking around Manchester and after a fast look on the internet it seemed an incredible place where to stay. It is situated in the vibrating centre of the city which can offer you all kind of entertainment : from the Chinese quarter, to deansgate locks ecc. The Aparthotel itself is stunning, all details are perfect and you can’t actually find something you don’t like in there. Even told they are modern, they give you a warm welcome even when the weather in Manchester is “Wet”. I Will surely go back to The Manchester Roomzzz Aparthotel!!

Paul Sinclair
Because it gives me freedom… and saves me money…
