There’s a few things in life that I really bloomin’ like. Nice hotels, shopping and live music are three of these things and the weekend before last was full of them all! We headed to Manchester as two of my favourite bands, Bullet for my Valentine and Avenged Sevenfold were playing at the Phones 4 U arena in succession of each other on Saturday and Sunday so we decided to make a weekend of it.
We stayed in Roomzzz Aparthotel, which I absolutely recommend if you’re looking for somewhere quite reasonably priced and in a great location for the city centre! When I booked, I didn’t think that we’d make use of the little kitchen area but we ended up cooking our breakfasts and our evening meals here. It was really nice having a leisurely meal and a few drinks before heading out in the evenings.
Of course, no trip to Manchester in December would be complete without a trip to the Christmas markets. As it was a Saturday afternoon it was obviously crazy busy, but we still indulged in a mulled wine and bratwurst!
