“Good service, attentive service”
Reviewed July 4, 2013

Good service from attentive staff, quick easy check in.

All staff spoke very good English.

The rooms were clean spacious and well designed.

The food was good quality but expensive.

The hum of traffic from the motorway was constant

Room Tip: It's on a busy motorway expect traffic noise

Booked a cheap deal on a Saturday night at this business conference hotel. Located on a cul de sac next to a motorway interchange so always a traffic hum. Very nice rooms and public areas. Attentive staff, good not particularly expensive food. Use of indoor pool and sauna. Very good wifi. Good value for money. Unfortunately the fridge was not cold and our milk soured and the soap dispenser ran out mid shower. Sleep disturbed by partygoers leaving at 3.30am. Charging for surface parking in an out of town location is a little unusual. Didn't take breakfast

Room Tip: Not above the exit on a Saturday night!

I stayed at this hotel for two nights on business. Check in staff were quick, efficient and friendly. The room was very well appointed, comfortable and welcoming. Laundry service is excellent and moderately priced. Dinner at the restaurant was great, the menu had a good variety of foods from which to choose. Breakfast also had a very good variety and the service was once again outstanding. All in all, a great place to stay.

We, 2 adults + 2 kids, stayed in a suite for 3 nights. As our daughter needs gluten free diet the hotel provided us special meals for her at the hotel restaurant or in a take-away lunch box - the service and the arrangements were exceptional! Generally, the staff is very helpful and took care of all our needs.
The location, near the highway, is convenient for traveling around and there is ample parking space (for a fee).
The food at the restaurant is of a good standard, but the menu is somewhat limited.
The only complaint we had, was on the service at the restaurant when there was a big dinner event at the hotel, we got served after more than an hour and only after complaining at the front desk.

Stayed in the hotel for 5 nights and it is nice with a good pool. The location is good especially for those needing to get around by car. Food is good and not too expensive and the breakfast is also good.

I booked into the Radisson Blu as a waypoint long a business trip: the main reason was that many of the smaller hotels would not check in guests after 10 pm, but the Radisson can take people who arrive late and leave early. The hotel is easy to find: the sign is visible from the highway, but the road back from the highay is convoluted. It's good to have a map or navigation device Pay-parking is in front of the building: the desk exchanges the ticket when they charge you for the night's parking. Check-in was friendly and very quick: internet is free and breakfast starts at 6:30 am (still too late for me...) The hotel is accessible throughout.

Rooms are nice in the business style typical of the chain. Two single beds, each firm with a nice duvet and light blanket. Power goes off when you leave with your room key (bad for charging things), but there is a TV filled with local channels, a mini-fridge, safe, and good workspace. The bathroom was clean, the shower had good pressure, very hot water.

The hotel is located away from any restaurants or shopping, but caters to conventions and has a good bar and restaurant. The waiters re very friendly and happy to help with a late snack or a beer recommendation: the lobby is clean and professional, good for informal meetings. It's probably more business than family oriented, but I wouldn't avoid it if I were traveling with children.
