Reviewed April 17, 2014

We stopped at the hotel for the first time on a short stop over in Manchester, arrived late so didn't have time to check out the full facilities eg spa but what we saw we loved.
We ate tapas at the Opus one bar that reminded me of Buddha Bar with its theme but in a great classic british building.
Staff were polite and friendly, relaxed in the bar and efficient at front of house. The only shame is we didn't stop for long enough so must go back!

Room Tip: We had a business class room that was calm and cool, no view but it's city centre and not what w...

An excellent, convienient hotel - we were at a conference locally and it was the perfect place to stay. The rooms were excellent as was the service. We ate in the hotel one night and again the food and service was very good. would recommend this hotel and would certainly return again.

I've stayed at this hotel a few times as it's always been very convenient for the following day's work in the Deansgate/Spinningfield's area. Yes it's one of the pricier hotels in manchester, but it's worth every penny for faultless service and standards of accommodation.

My only regrets are (1) I don't get to stay here more often and (2) it took me so long to realise how good the spa/gym and pool are!

Some deals can be had and I always book direct.

We had amazing afternoon tea here on Sunday. We've been here before for dinner and enjoyed it, but the afternoon tea experience topped it for us.
We had the gentleman's tea and the traditional and what a change for the better to have mini fish and chips and Yorkshire pudding too. My husband also chose the pint rather than the champagne option which he loved.
Service was good and it was not in your face and we were just left to chill and enjoy our surroundings.
We have booked to actually stay in the hotel in June for a couple of nights so really hope that the rooms live up to our expectations as the eating options have.

Stayed overnight at this hotel for a charity dinner. This was our second time here and it was even better. We stayed in the Daltry suite, fabulous room, with outside seating area, plenty of space and very comfy bed.
The service at dinner was brilliant, all food was served on time and hot, presentation was impeccable.
Staff are all very friendly and helpful. The breakfast service is excellent, with a buffet style of cereals and meats and a cooked breakfast for a hearty start to the day.

You walk in to the Radisson Edwardian Manchester, a building of old and new which seemingly should offer the finest hospitality and fine dining. Upon arrival, not one member of staff offered us a hello or a smile. Trying to find someone to seat us was even harder. The room which hadn't been uplifted in almost 3 years was dark (almost seedy) and loud with what seemed inappropriate music for such an occasion. Sandwiches not equal in size, (a distinct lack of variety too) undercooked scones which were still wet inside but over cooked on the outside was probably due to lack of understanding about oven temperature. Even the shape of scones were dismally executed with odd shapes served on the cake stand. The last tier had cakes that were equally baked days before and certainly had nothing to win us over with the already failing set up. Alas I was glad to take my partner who is like a dustbin to eat all the rubbish. The waiter Thomas was delightful yet seeming to be running around whilst managers appeared to be too interested in chatting to each other, dancing or cuddling mid floor. Had the service been better we would have probably been escorted out after 35 minutes. The ambience and feel of this terrific building was largely let down by staff who were insincere and poorly equipped to undertake a respectable afternoon tea. You could say the Radisson Edwardian is all fur coat and no knickers!

Thank you for taking the time to review Afternoon Tea here at The Free Trade Hall. I was concerned to read your comments, particularly as we receive lots of positive feedback on our award-winning product and service. I am sorry you were disappointed with your experience. So as not to mislead other readers, Opus Restaurant has recently undergone a substantial upgrade culminating in the our stunning Colonnade.
