“I love this hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

This is one of my favourite hotels in the UK. It's relaxing and welcoming from the moment you arrive. There is even a nice smell as you enter and walk around the hotel. I've only ever stayed in a standard room and they are very comfortable with a trendy layout and bathroom. I'd love to see inside on of the suites!

The spa is very relaxing and usually very quiet with a good pool, sauna and steam room. The cafe is great to chill in and enjoy a quick snack.

This is the hotel to stay in in Manchester!

Radisson are a well know brand, and the Manchester is no exception. Booking is very easy on line or via the smart phone app. On arrival, check in was smooth and efficient. The reception staff were very polite and helpful. I had a room on the fifth floor, and this was fine. There is very little noise from the city and the hotel is located close to the shops (including the Arndale Centre) and city centre. It is easy to get to from the airport (about 20 minutes in a taxi) and again easy access to the main line rail station (Manchester Piccadilly). The rooms are comfortable and have all the amenities you would expect, including 24 hour room service. There is a “Steak and Lobster” restaurant, and this ‘does what is says on the tin’ – they serve steak and lobster! It is good value, but might not suit everyone if they want a more varied selection. There is a second restaurant in the hotel for those, and this has a conventional al la carte menu. The staff are helpful and friendly, and the food is good. In the lower floor there is a spa. This is excellent, and I made use of it for an afternoon. Again, the staff are helpful, polite and friendly. There is also a swimming pool and gymnasium down there.
Breakfast is served in the main restaurant, and if everyone arrives at once, then there are not enough tables to accommodate everyone. One morning I arrived with a lot of other guests, and was invited to wait on the sofa’s until a table was available. This was not a problem for me, but if you are in a rush to get to a meeting or catch a plane or train, it could prove to be a little nuisance.
All in all, a good hotel – typical Radisson. Well located, good staff and great spa. I would be happy to stay here again, and Manchester proved to be a good place for a city break. Don’t laugh!!

4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

A very good stay in room 419, little extras like inexpensive room service (Chicken Caesar Salad, Fries and a glass of decent Rioja for £18) and fluffy robes were very much appreciated. The room itself was a little tired, but not shabby, although the window blinds did not keep out the light fully and failed to 'meet' the edges of the window. Lovely walk in shower, nice bed linen and useful turn down service, super free Internet and a pool to wallow in. Reception and concierge were as helpful and politely efficient as ever (I am a regular Radisson visitor with 70,000 Goldpoints). Overall, a very comfortable stay, but the room did need freshening up with new blinds. Value for money about what you would expect, but parking is somewhat distant (no offer to help with bags to the car park) and at £18 per 24 hour stay quite expensive. Room rate is good, however, although breakfast is not good value (eat in one of the numerous bistro cafes in the centre).

Thank you for this feedback. Due to our city centre location we are unable to provide our own car park so we recommend the nearby NCP. If you are looking for added-value, inclusive breakfast rates are always available on our website.

We stayed here recently for one night - we picked the hotel based on great Trip Advisor reviews so it's only fair we throw our 2p worth on here! The staff were really polite, the concierge went above and beyond to assist us, the room was fantastic (save for the blind that had all but fallen off its bracket) and the breakfast was lovely. We couldn't fault the hotel or service received one bit - a special mention for Paul from the concierge who was a true professional and looked after us from the second we entered the hotel. We'll be back soon, hopefully for a longer stay.

Upon arrival, a problem with the booking meant we had to wait 40 mins at the checkin desk, before we were allocated a room, despite having a printout of our confirmed booking. Quite unimpressed.

However, the pool was quite amazing and the breakfast very delishous. Good central location, but £36 parking at the nearest NCP was expensive for 2 nights.

Dear Wilburtil

Thank you for taking the time to complete the review.
We are sorry that your check in was so delayed only the third party that you booked through had not booked your room with us. We were full on that day, but I am delighted that we were eventually able to find you a room.
If I could just mention that the best rate is available on our own website.
We look forward to welcoming you back very soon.

The hotel service is fantastic but the scent in the lobby which the hotel infuses is so strong and irritates breathing specially to those who suffer from allergy or are elderly, I doubt that it's a healthy scent for children, of course if one has asthma I would stay clear. I hope the hotel management would do something about the lobby smell.

Thank you for your very kind comments regarding our Hotel.

Our scent in the lobby “ Brand Aroma” has been selected for our 14 hotels, we of course realise that individual tastes do vary but most of the feedback we receive is very positive.

I am delighted to inform you that the Hotel has just been re-accredited with our 5 Gold Star Rating.

Can't really fault this hotel. Stayed here a few times over the years and have always found the rooms spotless, the service consistent and a great choice at breakfast.

As a Club Carlson Gold member I was upgraded on my last stay to a business class room but really didn't see much of a difference other than a couple of robes hanging in the cupboard.

My only negative feedback is around the bottles of soap bolted to the wall in the bathroom. It makes it impossible to add foam bath to your bath and you're really not sure of whats in them or how long it's been in them! Usually I travel with my own shower gel but every now and again you rely on the hotel provided stuff!

Thank you for this feedback following your recent stay with us and for your kind comments. I can clarify that our toiletries are the "Essential" range by Gilchrist & Soames and have proved very popular.
