Very comfortable room, clean and modern. Sadly, when we visited we endured two days of travelling up to the twelfth of twenty one floors when only one lift was working. There was no evidence of lift engineers so perhaps there were parts on order? Doesn't sound like much but it meant considerable time wasted waiting for lifts that were travelling up and down in a seemingly uncoordinated fashion. The hotel were very quick to offer all residents compensation in the form of complimntary drinks in the reception area - much to the delight of a few who thought it a great opportunity to stock up in their rooms!
For me, waking each morning to a full English breakfast is an important part of our weekends away. Sadly the cooked breakfast was something of a disappointment. Though plentiful, the majority of food was luke warm and not particularly appetising. By contrast, the cold items, fruits etc were all fresh and looked much more appealing. The attendant staff were also very welcoming and helpful.
If you plan to arrive by car, be prepared for a difficult time parking as many of the spaces available are very narrow and not at all plentiful. One couple we spoke to in the lift had stayed before and on this occasion arrived by train rather than car for this reason alone.
The hotel's location is perfect whether you're there to shop or to take advantage of the pubs, restaurants and other city centre attractions.
Would we stay again? Well, this was our second time at the Radisson. Time now I think to try the Marriot or similar.
