“Made me want to book again.”
Reviewed July 12, 2012

The hotel itself is tucked away off Guildford high street, and is sleekly designed and fluid. Once you step inside the modern/luxe/quirky feel of the place relaxes you. There is no big reception desk rather a series of small intimate consoles to check in. The voile curtain wafting in the twinkling chandelier light (hang on, I am getting carried away) The library and nook for reading were very comfortable and our room was extremely well appointed and laid out. Spotlessly clean, nice toiletries, good shower. I would recommend this chain if all their hotels were this good, which I may just have to verify :)

Room Tip: We overlooked a car park but we were on the first floor. I believe floors higher up have a view of G...

Dear Reviewer,

Thank you for taking the time to post your feedback on Trip Advisor and for choosing the Radisson Blu Edwardian, Guildford for your recent visit to the area.

I am delighted to hear you were able to take time to sit and read in our kiosk and liked the Lewis Carroll inspired reception with is large bookcase, chandelier and staircase to no-where.

Your review serves as a great motivator to the team and would help other travellers make an informed choice on their accommodation requirements when in the area.

I look forward to welcoming you back to the hotel on a future visit.

Kind regards,

Peter Wardley

Recently opened and is located at the top of the High Street where the Guildford Hotel used to be. Rooms are of a decent size and there is a good range of TV channels. Tea and coffee making facilities ok ( no earl grey, no biscuit). Ice making machine on each floor ( well, certainly on the first). Free wifi in rooms work fine. The free library in reception is a nice touch.

If you want a convenient hotel it is great but don't expect character

Being an avid traveller for both business and pleasure domestically & internationally, our recent stay at the Radisson Blu in Guildford was one in the top ten for hotel stays in the UK.

The hotel itself is modern, well designed and the staff service exceptional. You are made to feel at home away from home. Smiles all round and a great hotel for location too (CAU restaurant just up the road from the hotel). Parking is available too and very convenient.

Would I stay here again? Most definitely. You cannot beat staff (Tom at reception) with high standards of professionalism and service, great food, wonderful rooms and perfect location.

Thank you to all the staff at the Radisson Blu in Guildford. Look forward to seeing you sometime again in the very near future.

Mr. H. Gill

Room Tip: Business Room upgrade is a must.

I stay in a lot of hotels all over the UK and this is the first time I've felt a hotel justified a review. The place was extremely modern, clean and in an excellent location. Plenty of parking underground. The room was like it had never been used before; immaculate and very stylish. A decent bar. Breakfast was good too.
Would definitely stay here again
