Yep yep yep it’s Friday and we’ve had a fabulous week… well with all this sunshine around how could we not? And you might have also noticed that we have two brand new Facebook pages… so don’t forget to visit them and recommend us!
We’re feeling the grass growing under our feet and we’re super excited about the clocks going forwards this weekend soooooo to celebrate we have amended our Friday Favourites competition – we still have the same fabulous prize on offer – a night on us in our Leeds City West hotel on Friday 1st April* – yes we’re serious it’s no joke and all you have to do to claim your luxurous stay is to share your favourite April Fools joke with us on Facebook…. keep it clean and no serious injuries please!
Well that’s Monday out of the way… soooo we’re now heading towards the weekend again and what a weekend this one is… I always think that the weekend the clocks change is the most exciting one of the year! Regardless of what you’re doing, but imagine what you could do with that extra hour of daylight at Roomzzz!
If you’re staying in Leeds why not visit some of the city’s attractions?
Royal Armouries Museum has over 8,000 objects displayed in five galleries our favourite is the Elephant Armour, which is the largest animal armour in the world.
The award-winning Thackray Museum allows you to step back in time to 1842 to experience Victorian Leeds, find out how scientific discoveries helped us to understand disease and revolutionise medicine and get interactive in Life Zone! the interactive children’s gallery.
The Henry Moore Institute another personal fave… explores sculpture from ancient to modern.
Leeds Art Gallery is home to one of the best collections of 20th century British art outside London.
Leeds City Museum meet the Leeds Tiger, see the final resting place of the Leeds Mummy and dig for fossils in the ‘Life on Earth’ gallery. A fun day out for visitors of all ages!
Remember too that it’s our last weekend of the extra special offer running at Leeds City West – you can enjoy a weekend for the great price of £40 per night per apartment – we had such a phenomenal response that we’ve extended it until the end of March but you only have this weekend left to take us up on this so don’t be disappointed and give us a call now on 0844 499 4888.
Well the weekend is nearly upon us yet again and as such will be full on in Leeds and Manchester, at Roomzzz we are looking forward to welcoming our weekenders, from those who’ve got an event to attend, to those who just fancied a visit to a different city and those visiting friends or family and want to do so in style and comfort!
But maybe, just maybe, you don’t have any plans yet and so we want to temp you into our clutches. Now we know that the thought of our fabulous apartments in Manchester and Leeds are lure enough but just in case you’re wavering…
Did you see the Antiques Roadshow last week? Well they visited the fabulous village of Saltaire which is about a 20 min train ride from Leeds city centre and about an hour’s drive from Manchester. Saltaire could fill an afternoon of anybody’s time, the village is dominated by Salts Mill once home to the largest spinning shed in the world now host to a whole range of galleries and shops. The 1853 gallery is worth a visit alone, it holds a collection of David Hockney paintings and drawings and at the moment they are showing the latest of his works created on his iPhone and iPad – you could get inspiration for when you return to Roomzzz and can make use of our in room Apple Macs.
Whatever you’re doing this weekend don’t forget that Friday night is all about Comic Relief so make sure that you take advantage of our free calls and wi-fi to make that all important donation!
It’s Wednesday and we’re thinking about the weekend again… yes we’re indulging ourselves with tales of our favourite things found in our luxurious rooms and of all the reasons we can find to stay in one of them!
We didn’t have to hunt for long as both Manchester and Leeds have many exciting events to attend over the next few months, here are a couple of our suggestions to make your stay in Roomzzz even more enjoyable:-
Manchester International Festival is being held from the 30th June until the 17th July and promises a full range of exciting activities, it is the world’s first international festival and hosts a programme of original new work and special events
The first shows for the 2011 Festival are announced and on sale now:
The Life and Death of Marina Abramović – a startling new piece for the stage: a biography of the godmother of performance art re-imagined by visionary director Robert Wilson, featuring music written and performed by Antony. Starring Marina Abramović and Willem Dafoe.

Wagner die Walküre + The Madness Of An Extraordinary Plan –
Sir Mark Elder and the Hallé in a concert performance of Wagner’s Die Walküre plus a specially commissioned dramatic prologue written by Gerard McBurney and directed by Neil Bartlett.
Leeds is not to be left out of the festivities either and we find it’s all in the planning! Leeds Festival is being held in Bramham Park again this year on 27th-29th August, now this may seem like a life time away but think how you’d feel if you missed out on one of our fabulous rooms and had to stay in a tent!
