Great views of Newcastle – #2

The Tyne Bridge is over the River Tyne in Newcastle, linking the city to Gateshead.  At the time of its construction it was the world’s longest single span bridge. The bridge was officially opened on 10 October 1928 by King George V and has since become a defining symbol of Tyneside. It currently stands as the tenth tallest structure in the city.

Another great stay at Roomzzz….

Last time we were here we had our four children with us and they loved it. This time we wanted a night away from the kids and wanted to sample some of Manchester’s night life.

We had a lovely welcome, and had another great stay. Thanks again Roomzzz.

This is the Millennium Bridge… which opened to the public in 200. The bridge is designed to rotate in order to allow large boats to pass – it is a truely spectacular sight to see when it does this as it moves 40 degrees and takes just four and a half minutes to do so – earning itself the name ‘Blinking Eye Bridge’.

“Very pleased with my stay” – is what Lucy C from Sheffield wrote following her stay with us at our city centre hotel in Manchester….

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.

School Holidays? Double your fun…


School holidays? I remember those… days of playing out with your mates, being taken away to visit far flung places and trips to explore cities… have you thought about a city break at Roomzzz?

It would be fair to say that in general we love school holidays but this year is set to be even better – with the launch of our Royalty Club and in addition for the holidays we’ve extended the discount – yes if you’re a member of your Royalty Club from the minute you sign up you can get 10% discount off your stay with us! And then…. the more times you stay the greater the discount… once you get to 25 stays you get 15% and at 75 stays you get 20% discount… there’s nothing to lose – it’s free to join!

So why not treat your kids to a UK city break and stay at Roomzzz in Leeds or Manchester during the holidays…? We’ll be giving you ideas to entertain on this page in the coming weeks but don’t delay sign up for a card and then book online or give us a call on 0844 499 4888!

Great eggs to crack

Posted on: No Comments


It feels like we’ve only just gone to bed after New Year’s Eve. Yet already 2011 has been racing by. Easter is fast approaching, meaning this is the ideal time to start planning for a well needed break.

Britain boasts many destinations that make it easy to forget about flying abroad. But, after running the finest luxury hotels in Leeds city centre, and welcoming guests to our fantastic serviced apartments in central Manchester, we believe there are no finer towns to pick when looking for an urban getaway.

Easter falls late this year, meaning those April showers should be on the wane. If you’re looking for some outdoors action, then try heading south from Central Manchester to the Mersey Valley. A culmination of Sale Water Park, Ivy Green, Urmston Meadows, and some 14 other conservation sites, this expansive open area lies in the city’s most south-westerly corner. Lakes with watersports, pubs, landscaping, woodland and a new Metrolink link bringing the Chorlton entrance just 25 minutes away from St Peter’s Square make it impossible to ignore.

On the other side of the Pennines, within similarly easy reach of the city centre, Leeds’ Roundhay Park stands like a jewel in the region’s green crown. One of the biggest areas of non-nationalised parkland in Europe, it’s easy to while away an afternoon exploring the leafy paths that criss-cross the prestigious site. And, should the heavens open, Tropical World is well worth the trip alone.

For a taste of Manchester’s political heritage, and an explanation as to how it became such a significant settlement, head to the People’s History Museum. Located in Castlefield, the world’s first Urban Heritage Site, walk through the doors for a guided tour of workers’ rights, suffragettes, The Manchester Guardian, trade unionism and the Communist Manifesto- all of which have roots in this town.

One of Leeds’ cultural highlights has to be the Royal Armouries. Not for the faint-hearted, by visiting Clarence Dock you can explore over 8,500 objects on display over five galleries, divided into categories like war, oriental and hunting. This is the flagship museum of its kind in the country, so expect a scale befitting this accolade.

Once you’ve ticked these off the list, explore Manchester’s historic grandeur inside the Royal Exchange Theatre and John Rylands on Deansgate- Britain’s oldest public library. Or simply take to the surrounding streets for a spot of consumerism in the birthplace of capitalism, what could be more Mancunian than that?

In lovely Leeds a visit to the Town and Civic Halls is a must, as both buildings offer breathtaking examples of neo Gothic and Georgian architecture. And, close by, The Henry Moore Institute retains one of the most cherished sculpture collections in Europe, from contemporary to classical, with special events running all year round.

Obviously then there’s a wealth of internationally acclaimed attractions, sites and sights to take in. And the north of England’s two largest cities both make for an ideal base to take in the surrounding Shires from. As such, whether staying central, or hitting the sticks, you’ll be celebrating the end of spring, and start of summer in style.
