Well here it is…. Thursday’s blog… and with it the final clue in our  Roomzzz Treasure Hunt!
This week our lucky winner gets a night in Roomzzz Leeds City… so what can they expect when they check in?

And as you’d expect, every apartment is fully kitted out with all mod-cons such as an Apple Mac, an integrated safe and a widescreen LCD TV.

What are the apartments like?
Our Smart studios have been cleverly thought out to provide you with a thoroughly functional, yet highly stylish living space. The open-plan design includes a well-equipped compact kitchen for preparing lavish lunches or late-night snacks. And there’s a host of clever features like the super-comfy memory foam bed, the combination wardrobe/bookcase and the desk that doubles as a dining table. For comfort and practicality, it’s the smart choice.
Five top floor Smart studios enjoy the added luxury of, you guessed it, a balcony – the perfect vantage point from which to survey city life.

Step into one of our Grande studios (accessible) and you’ll immediately be struck by the light, airy feel of the open-plan interior. Everything’s been arranged to give you the extra space you need to relax in complete comfort. There are double or twin options available. Worked up an appetite in the city? The large L-shaped kitchen provides everything you need for dining in, or for late-night snacking.

Space to stretch out. Space to relax. Space to live. That’s the thinking behind the Liberty suite. Here, you’ll discover a generously-proportioned open-plan living area with a good-sized kitchen, fully-equipped of course, and a dining table for sharing pasta, papers and opinions. There’s a separate bedroom, fitted with a stylish walnut wardrobe and dressing table. And because we know how hard it’ll be to leave your incredibly comfortable bed, we’ve added a wall-mounted plasma screen in there too.
Travelling as a family group? There’s no need to compromise, either on comfort or style. The Maxima suite features a master double bedroom overlooking the grand elevations of Sovereign Street, along with all the usual refinements such as fitted walnut furniture and a wall-mounted plasma screen. There’s also a second bedroom with bunks, desk and wardrobe – an ideal, and separate, space for the younger members of your party. In between, there’s a fully-equipped kitchen and dining area, as well as acres of comfy seating where you can spread out and plan your days together.
So all you have to do is visit yesterday’s Roomzzz blog…. work out the clues… post your answer onto our facebook page in either Leeds or Manchester, tell us you’re a Roomzzz Treasure hunter and if you’re right, you’re in the draw…. Happy hunting!

But don’t just take our word for it! JohnG from Bournemouth left us this review on Trip Advisor:

“I started my stay in July but am still staying at Roomzzz City West. I would be happy to recommend Roomzzz to anyone. I have found them very accommodating and the staff extremely polite and friendly. It makes a refreshing change to some of the impersonal hotels that I have stayed at where I have just felt like a number. It is far more a home from home and has all the domestic appliances that most people would have at home.

I can’t praise Roomzzz enough”

Don’t just take our word for it!

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.

SteveLeic from Rugby stayed with us in July…

This hotel is ideally placed, close to the railway station, the city shops and restraunts in the newly developed canal basin. It’s also easily accessible from the M1 motorway without having to cross the city. Check in was effortless and the staff were extremely helpful. I asked for a quiet room and was allocated a top floor room – which was quiet! It was extremely hot on the day I visited (30c) but the aircon worked well and was almost silent. The room was very well equipped with a dishwasher, washer drier, microwave grill, hob and fridge. I didn’t need them but would definately use this hotel for a longer stay. Breakfast is also provided in reception – just grab items and a cappucino – perfect! There is subsidised parking at an adjacent NCP too. I can’t realy fault this hotel and the value for money makes it a ‘must’ for a stay in Leeds.

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!
