We booked for a long weekend away as it was our anniversary and we had a concert to go to. Our wedding anniversary so we pushed the boat out a little and booked the Radisson as a treat.
It's not fair to say that the hotel is not good, it's just not special. In fact - we felt it was quite ordinary, but when you take in to account the cost of a stay it then becomes disappointing.
Reception staff were very good, struggled a bit to check us in, but we got there in the end.
Room was disappointingly small, with poor ventilation in the shower room. The 'power' shower delivered a meagre trickle of water that went from hot to warm to hot and cold. Decor nice.
We had dinner one night - steak and lobster - again just ordinary. Great service though. Ate out after that.
The view freom the room was disappointing, but we accept not all rooms can have a view. We suspect that as we booked through hotels.com we get don't get the nicer rooms? Just a suspicion.
So, nothing much wrong, but nothing there that we thought was 5*.
I was going to rate it average - but at this price we should be really impressed - so it gets a poor.
