“Excellent accommodation near the train station and city centre”
Reviewed 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.

Festivities in Leeds!

Posted on: No Comments
We’ve been hunting around for our favourite things to do around Leeds this Christmas – thanks to Visit Leeds for these ideas below:-
You don’t need to swap Leeds for Lapland this year for a truly festive experience – your favourite attractions have got plenty of fun planned.
Enjoy the superb Christmas Fair at Harewood House, with a wide range of shops and stands selling all kinds of seasonal food and gifts, plus a brand new magical Santa’s grotto.
Visitors toThe Christmas Adventure at Stockeld Park can enjoy a host of exciting events such as the reindeer parade and treasure hunts, and from dusk, illuminations add to the magic. Have a go on the eco ice rink, get lost in the snowflake maze or see the mystical creatures living in the enchanted wood.

This Christmas, Kirkstall Abbey and Abbey House Museum are hosting  craft making sessions, Santa’s grotto, tree dressing days and outdoor carol concerts this year, so wrap up warm and go and enjoy the fun!

Temple Newsam House is beautifully trimmed for a Victorian Christmas and here you can enjoy evenings of musical entertainment along with mince pies, hot chocolate and mulled wine. You can even visit the living nativity and Santa’s grotto in Home Farm- complete with snow!
And best of all… once you’ve had your fill of the festivities you can go back to Roomzzz and relax! Go online now and make your booking www.roomzzz.co.uk!

FREE things to do 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 half term we thought you might appreciate this list again!
  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.

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 or another Roomzzz again.
