Top Tips…

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!

Mid week catch up…

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:-

The first shows for the 2011 Festival are

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!

Hands across the water, more flights across the Atlantic

Posted on: No Comments


Manchester is Britain’s third most visited city by foreign nationals, and its airport the UK’s fourth busiest. Naturally, we’re proud to do business here, and offer a unique blend of luxury hotel and serviced apartment to travellers while they’re in town. As such, Roomzzz is pretty much perfect for anyone looking for Manchester city centre hotels.

Ringway was a tiny passenger facility on the site of an old RAF base. Renamed Manchester Airport in 1972, it’s now the size of a small town. The two runways and three terminals welcome nearly 20 million passengers to the north of England’s foremost global gateway each year, meaning things have grown dramatically.

As of September 2010 the airport became one of only 17 in the world to handle the Airbus A380- the largest commercial aircraft in the sky. In 1995, Manchester, or MAN as is its abbreviated name, was voted the World’s Best Airport, and in 2008 it won a similar title, though this time competing domestically against other British destinations.

Now Virgin Atlantic has added a new, high profile route. Passengers will be jetting off directly to The Strip, with twice-weekly flights departing Manchester for Las Vegas from April 2011. OK, so most people will be heading out to America’s glitz and gambling capital. But still, we’re sure there will be a few yanks jumping on board, and taking a trip across the ocean for a spell in one of England’s cultural powerhouses.

What’s more, Las Vegas is not only Nevada’s premier city; it’s one of the biggest business centres in the US. Manchester boasts the Britain’s strongest economy outside of London, as such it makes sense this route has opened. We’re interested to see what movers and shakers it brings, so it’s anyone’s guess who might check into our hotel close to Manchester Airport once that first flight lands. And as for stop offs prior to departure, we can offer you the perfect home away from home for that essential pre-flight sleep.

The ‘finest’ in Leeds beats the tallest in the world

Posted on: No Comments

We’ve all been rather astounded this week. On Monday it was announced that Broadcasting Place, part of Leeds Metropolitan University, had been named the World’s Best New Tall Building.

It’s surprising that this 20-storey high-rise has fended off the new, sleek Bank of America HQ in North Carolina. Furthermore, the fact that this educational site has managed to pip the Burj Khalifa to the post- currently the planet’s tallest building- was even more shocking.

The new structure on Leeds’ skyline certainly is different. Consisting of five core pieces, the angles do offer something new, while the rust coloured cladding should ensure the building ages well. But, despite the impressive accolade, and the obvious innovation at work here, we still say there’s better architecture afoot in Yorkshire’s largest conurbation.

Leeds Town Hall, Gallery and Henry Moore Institute
Actually three buildings, as they’re all on the same site we thought we’d put them together. The Town Hall is the city’s most impressive Victorian building, while the Gallery and Henry Moore are all about contemporary lines.

Kirkstall Abbey
Skyscrapers are like churches of commerce, so it makes sense to start here. Constructed in 1152 by Cistercian monks, one of England’s best-preserved abbeys is well located close to Roomzzz Leeds West.

Hyde Park Picture House
Bang in the middle of student-ville sits this early 20th Century treasure. Constructed in 1914, as Britain went to war in Europe, it’s pretty much unchanged from those days, making for a classic cinema experience.

Victoria Quarter
The most luxurious shopping in town in the most opulent surroundings the city has to offer. Think Ted Baker, Martinique and Yves Saint Laurent, punctuated with fountains and history in the north’s own Knightsbridge.

The Corn Exchange
It had to be in here really. If not Leeds’ best known, then certainly one of its most visited buildings. The breathtaking central room houses lovingly restored units, and a ceiling that’s worth the visit alone.

Winter Warmers

Posted on: No Comments

There’s an autumnal atmosphere in the air, suggesting British Summer Time is about to end. Come 2am on Sunday October 24th the clocks go back, and winter kicks in. Bar crawlers can celebrate, as can club revellers, with 60 free drinking and dancing minutes.

Manchester’s musical extravaganza

Posted on: No Comments

The red carpet is ready. The champagne is chilled. And now, ladies across the north are looking forward to the perfect pop party.

Thursday October 28th sees Manchester’s Tiger Tiger succumb to a tuneful takeover, as Your Choice- the lifestyle magazine for NHS staff- hosts a Charity Extravaganza. The Printworks venue will see former X Factor finalists Stacey Solomon, Ruth Lorenzo, and Jamie ‘Afro Archer performing live for fans and charitable supporters alike.

The party hopes to raise funds for six NHS Trusts based in the North West; including Europe’s leading cancer centre, The Christie, and Central Manchester University Hospitals, which incorporate the largest single-site children’s hospital in the UK. Matt Littler and Darren Jeffries will host the party, making it something of a reunion for the pair, best known for their time spent playing Hollyoaks‘ lovable likely lads, Max and OB.

Early-bird tickets are available for what promises to be a bright and beautiful bash, at the bargain price of £20, until October 19th. They then jump to £25, though it’s worth considering there’s a champagne reception and free use of the Lucky Voice karaoke booths. For more information and tickets, visit Event Elephant.

What’s more, with our Manchester City aparthotel just a short cab ride from the venue, there’s very little reason not to get all the girls involved, and make it an overnight stay to remember. So take Friday off work, and enjoy the shopping, salons, and sights all afternoon.

If you’re looking for hotels near Tiger Tiger, then look no further. As one of the finest boutique hotels in Manchester, Roomzzz offers luxury as standard, with memory foam beds, Apple Mac computers, and LCD TV’s in every room. So when you think Manchester city centre hotels, Manchester apartments, or serviced apartments in Manchester, think Roomzzz Aparthotel.
