Can’t fault the staff and the hotel itself was clean modern and good amenities. Swimming pool was a great touch and it was very well managed. The hotel felt clean and safe and all Covid measures seem to have been well thought through. .

We arrived at the Raddison to discover that the pool, steam room and sauna only opens at weekends. As we viewed the hotel on Booking.com this was not stated. We had only booked this hotel as we had understood that we could relax in the pool area. The room was boiling, again Booking.com. had stated that the hotel tooms have air conditioning. I raised this with the reception and they said the hotel doesn't have air conditioning. Been the hottest day of the year so far, the rooms were unbearable hot and no windows opened so neither my partner or I manged to get any sleep. We were offered an upgrade with red wind (I don't drink) and beer in the room. I would sooner of had a cooler room and pool facilities. The restaurant waiter on duty last night was an asset and credit to the hotel.

Dear Patsy We're truly sorry you experienced a disappointing stay with us. We've checked both Booking.com and our own website and both state that some facilities may be closed or restricted and advise guests to check with the hotel direct. We're sorry if you missed this information. Our swimming pool is currently only open at weekends as there is not enough demand to justify opening it midweek. We are hopeful that with further easing of restrictions on 21st June we will be able to open the club 7 days a week. Please accept our apologies that the air handling unit (AHU) in your room was not operating efficiently. Our hotel does benefit from an AHU system which is safer and healthier than an air conditioning system as it draws air in from outside and simply cools it or heats as required by the guest via the in room controller. The unit in your room was in fault. We were pleased to learn that our Director of Operations has refunded part of the cost of your accommodation in recognition of the issue with the AHU and as a gesture of goodwill. Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback and please accept our apologies once again. Kind regards Daniel

Over-all the hotel was great and we will return at some point in the near future, I can't comment on the spa facilities as we didn't get to try this out as it had restricted times due to covid but would love to try it next time no complaints with anything else.

Stayed September 2020 Reasonable rates for a 1 night stay next to East Midlands airport when we were taking a flight the next day. Good-sized, clean room. All the usual covid protocals in place. We picked it at the time on the basis that unlike other local airports it actually had a bar area and restaurant that were open, though we later learned upon checking in that the restaurant was fully booked! It would be nice if this is likely to be the case if guests could be emailed in advance to advise that they should book sooner rather than later. Luckily we were able to get a seat around the bar and items from their bar menu for dinner instead.

Hi Archios Many thanks for the feedback we do appreciate it and thank you also for the positive review. In the current circumstances we are currently only permitted 50% of our usual capacity in the restaurant so it is advisable to book at your earliest opportunity. We're please you enjoyed your stay and hope to welcome you back soon. Warm regards Daniel
