The Roomzzz portfolio is to be boosted by a further six aparthotels, two more of which are currently under construction. Broadley have begun laying the foundations in Newcastle and York, which are both due to open next year.
Roomzzz Newcastle will be expanding the already existing 14-bed property in the converted Friar House.
The new build will bring a further 74 rooms to the existing offering in the city centre which is only 200m from the main train station in Newcastle.
The plans which are currently in place, propose to link the old with the new and will include shared facilities such as a lounge and coffee zone for those wanting to relax.
One of the striking features of Roomzzz Newcastle will be the views. Some of the upper rooms in the new build will have unprecedented views over the River Tyne.
Located on the banks of the River Ouse and the River Foss, and only 10 minutes away from York Train Station, Roomzzz York Aparthotel will arguably be the most picturesque location in our portfolio.
Planning permission has been granted to provide 97 rooms, which will include a penthouse and duplex rooms on the upper floors.
As flooding can be an issue in York, especially with a location on the river banks, Roomzzz and Broadley have been working closely with the Planning Authority and the Environment Agency to provide improved flood defences on the site. The main floors of this hotel will be built 4 meters above ground to avoid risk of flooding – this distance will allow for additional flood water storage so Roomzzz York is protected from any potential flood damage.
The rooms at Roomzzz York will be less rectangular than normal and feature longer, more zoned rooms. Guests will also benefit from an on-site gym, and a café and deli in a light atrium space – one of the striking architectural features Roomzzz will include after working tirelessly with the design officers in York. Roomzzz has also been very careful to ensure the hotel blends into the existing environment; a full landscape will feature at the front of the hotel so that it works seamlessly with the river walk.
