“Our absolute favourite hotel!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 31, 2013

my boyfriend and i stayed at this hotel before... it's impeccable! we both loved it from the minute we walked in! it's quite memorable, as we had booked the hotel as a promotion package and we were expecting our hotel room to be average but lo and behold! it was stunningly gorgeous! my boyfriend and i walked in with our track suits thinking the hotel was nothing more than the average hotel you find everywhere... believe me, you should have seen the embarrassment and shock on our faces when we walked in to this luxurious and classy reception/ lobby!

we're definitely going to be prepared in our next visit next month, november 2013 for our fourth year anniversary!!

the staff were professional, helpful and friendly. although i would suggest that some of them smile a little bit more as this can bring warmth to customers. breakfast was to die for!!

Just stayed for the 4th time and am very impressed with this hotel - very convenient location, lovely décor and facilities. Good free wifi throughout. Food and service great. Only reason for 4 rather than 5 stars is that breakfast ordered in the room was 15 minutes late - with no apology, and I had problems with my TV that the (very pleasant) night porter could not fix. Overall would highly recommend. Lobby is great for informal meetings and social get-togethers.

Dear LKW9,
Thank you very much for your honest feedback. I investigated the room service and the time slot on our door knob is 20 minutes you received your breakfast within the time frame, there is an option on the room service card marked OTHER that you can put a exact time you would like your food please use this next time you stay with us. On behalf of the Radisson Blu please accept my sincere apologies.

Kind regards

Loved the hotel room design very good, enjoyed meal and breakfast in the restaurant, liked the way that restaurant can be subdivided when it is quiet, as it was on the sunday night I was there, to make it feel a bit more comfortable. Great pool and spa.

We got married at a nearby venue in Oct and needed a hotel for around 60 family and friends to stay (inc us) rooms were booked for a fantastic rate of around £50 inc breakfast in the Jan hotel. We booked the larger and more expensive presidential room that was fantastic with loads of space. Bar was expensive but not too bad. Stayed open until well after guests arrived back from the wedding. Breakfast was delicious. Parking is extra at £5 per day. One negative was some guests who had an extra bed for kids said it was very uncomfortable.
Overall a great modern hotel with friendly staff. Would not hesitate to stay again esp at the discounted rates.

Dear nightsky224,
Thank you very much for your positive comments about your recent stay. I am very sorry to read about the uncomfortable bed. We are open since 2 years and all our equipment is still new and the extra beds have nice mattresses, I have passed your comment to my Head Housekeeper to check.

Stayed here with work colleagues, and intended to go out for a meal at a local restaurant, but after a couple of drinks, on the lovely patio area, we decided to stay and eat at the hotel.

Both the service and food was great, and the wine and cocktail list was also good.

There is a pool that looked nice (I didn't try it) and a gym too - and they serve Grab and Go breakfasts for those who have an early start - so they seem to have thought of most things.

I will stay happily stay again.
