This hotel was very central for our trip to Liverpool. Most places, including the city centre were a short walk away as were restaurants, pubs, shops.
On arrival at reception, we were greeted by Lucy, who was utterly charming, a very helpful, sunny lady and when asked if our room had views across the Mersey, changed our original booked room so that we did. Most of the staff were pleasant, although I have to say when trying to find our way to the spa later on, we asked a gentleman on reception and he was quite offish towards us ,almost making us feel as if we were not paying guests. We soon realised the hotel must have had problems in the past regarding non guests using the gym and spa but all the same we both felt quite affronted by the mans attitude, so much so that I felt the need to write it here on my review.
This hotel was spotless . The room was warm, the bed was huge and extremely comfortable. The shower was powerful. I loved the fact wine glasses were left in the room. I get very frustrated when hotels are 'precious' about guests taking in your own wine etc . Most guests do this and by leaving wine glasses, it showed us that this hotel cares about its guests and not only its profit.
The spa was, clean, quiet and very pleasant, however the Jacuzzi (which I love) although very powerful, was way too cold. Also take a padlock with you for lockers as the only seemed to have about 3!
The only real disappointment for us were the breakfasts. They simply were not up to the standard for a 4 star hotel, The bacon was rock hard, the scrambled egg cold, both mornings there was no tomatoes. We ordered poached egg and they arrived more like boiled eggs. Disappointing for us, as otherwise we really enjoyed our stay here.
. We went on the 'Magical Mystery tour' Neil, was our guide and made the experience funny, interesting and the 2 hours just flew by . We drank in the Cavern Club after dinner one night and danced to a Beatles tribute band. Ladies, the shopping area is wonderful it has the most amazing Primark, 4 floors !!
I would and have recommended the Radisson Blu, but please sort out the breakfasts, warm up the Jacuzzi and maybe leave a print out in the rooms of how to get to the spa and return using the room card. I believe then the Radisson Blu it would be worthy of a 5 star
We LOVED Liverpool, it was clean, with great architect and I honestly think I left a little piece of my heart there.
