Reviewed March 8, 2014

We have stayed here several times now and it is perfectly situated for the airport, especially T2. We drive here, leave the car as part of the package and the car is ready and waiting for us on our return. It is just a short walk along the covered Skylink so there's no need for a courtesy bus. On our recent visit, the new Collage Restaurant had opened and it is a huge improvement on the old restaurant. However, I was about to book for my next holiday and noticed that the price has increased by over 12.25%! Not happy about that so I have change my value rating from 5* to 3*. £155 was excellent value; £174 is little better than average and this increase is nowhere near as low as inflation.

Thank you for your review and recommendation of Radisson Blu Hotel Manchester Airport.
I am pleased to note an overall enjoyable experience and our recent refurbishments have met with our approval.
Bedroom pricing is relative to the levels of business anticipated, similar to that of the airlines. Equally, the further out your book, the better the rate you should be able to avail of. If I may be of assistance with your next reservation, please do not hesitate to contact me directly (michael.weston@radissonblu.com) so I may look after your requirements personally.
I very much look forward welcoming you back in the not too distant future.
Best regards,
Michael

I posted a review of this usually excellent hotel a couple of years ago to say that the over attentive waiting staff had let down my experience, and really pleased to see that my feedback was used to implement a simple and effective process to address that on my recent visit [see http://www.alex-brown.co.uk/2014/02/up-for-cup.html].

Great work, comfortable stay and the new bar and restaurant area looks great - making great use of the view of everything going on below at the Airport.

Look forward to my next visit.

Room Tip: Ask for a business room, you never know they might have one free :)

We've stayed at this hotel many times both as a couple and with our young son. The staff are very friendly, helpful and professional. This time we stayed in a business class room which was immaculate with a great view of the runway. We had access to the business class lounge with complimentary drinks and snacks, it was all very civilised and the perfect start to our holiday. Only a short walk indoors to the airport check in desks - what more could you ask??!!
We're happy to pay 'that bit extra' for quality service and location!!

The location is without doubt the best for Manchester Airport. Various family members have stayed here a great many times either before holiday or on business and seldom use anywhere else. The pool and gym facilities are excellent. The business rooms and the additional services offered are first class. There was one hiccup encountered with this particular stay - quite considerable to the individual concerned however the mark of any business/ organisation is how they deal with the concerns raised. The Radisson in response to that concern - in extremely quick time, listened, they investigated and they resolved the matter beyond what was asked or expected.

My advice to anyone using Trip Advisor who encounters a perceived problem and prior to any review is to raise the matter and give the provider the opportunity to resolve - this was done on this occasion and The Radisson Blu most certainly excelled and are receiving a deserved review not clouded by the one perceived problem.

Use the train, stay here the night, catch the plane next morning !
This is not the cheapest place to stay overnight before or after a flight, but it's certainly the most convenient , especially for T2. The rooms are not huge, but they are warm, comfortable and well equipped with wonderful views of the runway activities. Excellent remodelled restaurant since last year, with good choice of not too expensive food and drinks. Staff were all efficient and helpful. Highly recommended for private or business travellers.

Stayed for the first time after recommendation from a friend . Yes the rooms are looking a bit tied but still nice and by the noise of the drilling ( stopped at 18 hrs) the refurbishment is well Underway . The only thing that spoilt our stay was the duvet was not big enough for the giant bed we have . It just reached the edge but no further so I spent most of the night play " tug of war" with my other half Fighting over It . The result was a very poor nights sleep . Not what you want prior to a long haul flight . Would I stay here again . Yes I would but would ask for twin beds !

It has become a family "tradition" now each year that we always stay at the Radisson the night before our holiday. We always stay in a family room which is 2 rooms with an inter-connecting door. We always have received excellent service. The new restaurant is great and the bar serve amazing cocktails. The hotel is literally in the airport which is so convenient especially when you have children.

The only criticism I would make is that we have stayed in the Radisson over 6 times and have remained loyal to them. I just wish that they would appreciate our business as a returning guest and maybe offer an upgrade or a bottle of wine in the room etc.
