Stayed in the Radisson Edwardian based on the reviews on Trip Adviser - which suggested that it was a great hotel. It was clean enough and the room was ok, but certainly nothing special, in fact fairly basic.
The main issue was the quality of the mattress, one of the worst we have slept on - or should that be "tried to sleep on". While we can accept that some people like soft mattresses I am sure no-one likes soft lumpy mattresses where you can feel all of the springs. When we complained in the morning the manager, who was very friendly and helpful, said that we should have said something the night before and they would have moved us to another room - obviously not something we wanted to do in the middle of the night. As compensation she said they would offer us a good deal the next time we stay there together with a complimentary upgrade, but we will not be staying there again.
Another issue was the shower. The showers in this hotel are wet room style, which is fine but as the drain in ours was slightly blocked the water didn't drain away very well and it ended up soaking the rest of the bathroom, including the mat - be warned.....don't leave anything on the floor outside the shower area.
The manager then offered us a complimentary breakfast, which we accepted. Other writers have commented about the poor standard of this and they are spot on, no-one was clearing the tables, the service was miserable, the juice wasn't fresh and the food was bland - not five star.
We have stayed in many, many hotels and this is nothing like a five star hotel, probably an average three star apart from it having leisure facilities............certainly not worth the money.
