Pancake anybody?

Posted on: No Comments
Yummmm! Today we are really glad that all our the rooms in our city centre accommodation and our hotel in Manchester have kitchens because we’ll be making good use of them today!
Pancakes really are the best food – sweet or savoury they are sure to delight… everyone has an opinion on the best options for fillings! The traditional way is just a spoonful of sugar and a squeeze of lemon juice… or how about some maple syrup?
So to make the perfect pancake you need:-
  • 10g/4oz plain flour, sifted
  • pinch of salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 200ml/7fl oz milk mixed with 75ml/3fl oz water
  • 50g/2oz butter
Sift the flour and salt into a bowl and make a well in the flour, break the eggs into well and then whisk away, gradually add the milk and water – keep whisking.
Melt the butter into the pan and get the pan really hot and drop in a ladle of the mixture- it should only take a minute and then you get to flip it! The second side cooks faster and then you have a wonderful pancake ready to take your favourite filling!
So Happy Pancake Day from Roomzzzz – get flipping!

Very pleased with my stay!

“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.

We’re running our Treasure Hunt again this week and the prize is a night on us in Roomzzz Leeds City… Why is this a good prize? Sunsetcat had this to say about a recent trip to our Leeds city centre hotel:-
 
“Excellent accommodation near the train station and city centre.”
5 of 5 starsReviewed 17 December 2011
The hotel is very conveniently located just a short walk away from the train station. Staff were friendly and helpful. For instance, I requested extra pillows for the room, and these were brought up before bedtime. I phoned reception to ask about rebooting the Mac in the room, and was given good advice on how to do that. The room itself comes with good facilities. Free wifi is always great. And my boyfriend and I were particularly taken by the lovely underfloor heating in the bathroom! The little kitchen was handy, as we got some ready meals from Marks & Spenser’s at the station – again, only a few minutes walk away – and heated up those for dinner when we didn’t feel like eating out. There are also plenty of nearby restaurants to eat at, if you don’t want to prepare food for yourself.

There was enough closet space for an overnight stay, and also a little in-room safe. The room faced to the rear of the building, and was very quiet with little noise, despite over stay being on the weekend. The bed was very comfortable. If there was one thing I wasn’t so keen on, the air conditioning didn’t warm the room up as well as I’d have liked. But that aside, we had a very pleasant stay. I would certainly be happy to return, and would also recommend the hotel to friends. 

We think that says it all… keep reading our blog this week for more clues to the treasure!
