Roomzzz Creates Local Jobs…


£5m hotel development to create local jobs

Published in Business on
Roomzzz Aparthotel
A new £5 million hotel is set to open in Newcastle, creating around 20 jobs for the city.

Roomzzz Aparthotel are in the process of restoring Friar House in the city centre, creating 44 luxury apartments and suites.

The sites is the fifth in the Roomzzz Aparthotel portfolio, adding to sites in Manchester and Leeds.

Commenting on the announcement, Mark Walton, head of Roomzz Aparthotel UK said: “We are bringing an influx of new jobs to the City and are looking forward to Roomzzz Newcastle CITY sharing Newcastle’s famed warmth and hospitality through the Aparthotel and our choice of team to all of our guests.

“Newcastle City is a chic stay-away from home which gives suggestions and aspirations to a luxurious lifestyle that sometimes may seem beyond our day to day reach – we match luxe and Apple technology with affordability and practicality,  the combination of which promises to strengthen the marketplace  in terms of luxury stays in Newcastle.”

The restoration of the Georgian Friar House is now underway, and all planning, design, restoration and construction work has been tendered to local companies in two phases.

Mark continued: ‘The planning, design and build surrounding an historic building such as Friar House has demanded we work closely with Newcastle council as well as with sympathy for the building and area as well as extreme care and expertise. We are delighted with the progress that has been made on site so far and the team are ahead of schedule for completion’.

He now hopes that the hotel will strengthen the marketplace in terms of luxury stays in the Newcastle area.

“Newcastle City is an incredibly exciting location for the brand – we are looking forward to being immersed in the rich vibrancy that the City offers residents and tourists alike. We are proud to be a part of Newcastle’s hospitable future.”

Well in our search to bring you the best of things going on across the country I came across this…. ‘Back Le Bid’ – a campaign to hold a stage of the Tour de France in Yorkshire in 2016! 

The Tour de France is an annual bike race, covering more than 3,600 kilometres (2,200 mi) and lasts three weeks. The race is broken into day-long segments, called stages and the idea is that for 2016 one of these stages will be held in Yorkshire!
This bid already has the backing of some of cycling’s big names – Mark Cavendish and Ben Swift to name a couple…
Wow…. imagine if the world’s largest sporting event came through the county? Here at Roomzzz we would be perfectly placed to get the best roadside view… our accommodation in Leeds provides the best base to explore Yorkshire!
If you’d like to help Yorkshire win Le Bid you can show your backing here…. http://www.yorkshire.com/back-the-bid

Free night in Manchester…. What to expect?

Posted on: No Comments
Well it’s time for Friday Favourites Treasure Hunt… and this week our lucky winner gets a FREE night in our fabulous Manchester Roomzzz!
So if you get to check in what can you expect?
48 individual apartments fully fitted for the practicalities of daily life, finished with a subtle suggestion of the Orient inspired by the bustle of nearby Chinatown. As you’d expect from a luxury hotel, there’s every concession to contemporary style and comfort. 
Manchester Central convention complex for conference and exhibitions and the Northern Quarter – the home of fashion outlets, art galleries and quirky boutique shops are all within walking distance, and the Trafford Centre is less than 6 miles away, its ideal for those wanting to experience the true spirit of this vivacious city. We’re easily reached from Manchester Piccadilly railway station, and with Piccadilly Gardens just a few blocks away, and the Manchester Evening News (MEN) Arena is less than a mile away, you’re never far from the heartbeat of this vibrant 21st Century metropolis.
Award wining Grade II listed building boasts high ceilings, long windows, soaring interior spaces, and kitchens equipped with Smeg appliances. This is the height of luxury, by design.
So what about the Roomzzz

Everything about our Smart studios has been carefully thought out to create the perfect balance between comfort, style and practicality. From the high-gloss white kitchen pod with integrated appliances, to the comfortable sleeping area complete with luxurious double bed and ample wardrobe space. Need to check your mail? The plasma TV doubles as a Mac Mini. Need to complete your report? The dining table doubles as a workstation. And the shower? Well actually, it’s just a shower (but quite possibly one of the best-appointed showers in Manchester).

You can never have too much of a good thing, we believe. So, we took the concept of our smart, stylish studios and expanded upon it a little to create the Grande Studio. With a slightly larger open-plan living space there’s plenty of room to stretch out. Rustle up a latte and warm croissants in the all-white kitchen and return to your luxurious bed with the papers. (Twins and doubles are available). Plan out your day with free web access via your iMac. Then, enjoy a bracing shower in the contemporary bathroom – some are fitted with baths and even their own plasma TVs. Now that’s thinking generously. 
 
 
The Liberty suite takes style and comfort to a whole new level. Step into the apartment and you’ll immediately be greeted by a large open plan living space with high ceilings, generous seating, a good-sized dining table, plasma TV and iMac / Mac Mini computer. You’ll also find a fully equipped all-white kitchen pod with stainless steel appliances – perfect for preparing lazy breakfasts or lavish dinners. There’s more to discover in the shower room, tastefully finished with high quality modern fittings and dual wash basins. Altogether, Liberty gives you the freedom to enjoy your stay, just the way you want. 
 
 
Everything about the Maxima suite has been designed to maximise your comfort. With a spacious open-plan living area, comfortable seating, a large dining table, a coffee table and a deep luxury rug, you’ll quickly feel at ease. Settle down in front of the plasma TV, or catch up on your mail with the iMac provided. Conjure up a simple supper using the high gloss all-white kitchen pod, or simply luxuriate in the comfort of your bed located on a mezzanine and reached by a feature spiral staircase. (Extra guests can take the practical sofa-bed down below). There’s also a sleek, modern shower room – some are available with baths, and even their own plasma TVs for maximum indulgence. 
 
 
Check in to the Penthouse suite (previously Emperor Suite) and it’s a little like having your own private empire in the heart of Manchester. Laid out around a spacious open-plan living area, it provides every comfort for you and your fellow guests to relax, dine and live in total luxury.

The focus of the master bedroom is a magnificent four-poster bed and the room has its own en suite WC and handbasin, a walk-in wardrobe, a desk with an iMac and a plasma TV. Up on the mezzanine, via a spiral staircase, there’s a further double/twin bed with a separate wardrobe and dressing table. Need even more room? It’s possible to open up the suite to the room next door to create a private three-bedroom suite.
 

All guests are well served by the shared living space, complete with 3-seater sofa-bed, two armchairs, a coffee table and a luxury designer rug. Not to mention the fully-equipped all-white kitchen pod and dining table for getting together over brunch. The contemporary bathroom too features a separate shower and its own plasma TV, so no-one has to miss their favourite soap.  
 
Soooooo what’s not to love about Manchester Roomzzz? And what do you have to lose? Join our treasure hunt and you could be on your way to a fabulous night of luxury at Roomzzz!
 

Live like a king!

Do you remember Dastardly and Mutley? Well here’s your chance to see them in real life! 17th July sees the Red Bull Flutag which takes place in Roundhay Park… this event “challenges the brave and brainy to design, build and pilot home-made flying machines off a 30-foot high flight deck in hopes of soaring into the wild blue yonder…or more often, plunging into the waters below. Flugtag, which means “flying day” in German, pushes the envelope of human-powered flight, but competitors need more than airtime to reach the podium. Teams are judged on three criteria: flight distance, creativity of the craft, and showmanship. This criteria has inspired flying tacos, prehistoric pterodactyls, winnebagos with wings and even Snoopy and the gang to grace the Flugtag flight decks! Since the first Red Bull Flugtag took place in Vienna, Austria, in 1991, almost 100 Red Bull Flugtags have been held around the globe, attracting up to 300,000 spectators for a single event.“
