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.

Manchester in the reviews again!

Posted on: No Comments

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.

These three guests below stayed in Manchester Roomzzz… read what they have to say!
“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.

Big wardrobe, cute little modern kitchen area, so so sooo nice!! We were on the second floor, heard some bad reviews about thin walls?! Never heard a thing, decor throughout is amazing, even the corridors and reception. three huge windows in our apartment (Grande Studio) with gorgeous black shutters on the inisde and then roller black out blinds as well.
