Really enjoyed my stay here... Great location and awesome staff. It is getting a little old and needs a referb (which I believe is imminent) but still clean and pleasant. I would recommend this to anyone.

We attended a handball tournament. We got a good offer and stayed here. Nothing to complain about. Good breakfast and service. Clean rooms that look old fashion but other than that all is ok. Good value

This hotel needs renovation. Rooms are not to the usual standards. Misding a phone to get wake up call. No socket to charge your phone next to your bed. Showerheads are dirty. And also a lot of noise outside hotel is not doing anything about people shouting. I will def. Not stay here anymore.

The hotel is badly in need of refurbishment. The room was tatty and worn, one lightbulb did not work. The cleanliness was not perfect, Dust remaining on the floor and a used towel from the earlier guest left in the bathroom.

Having stayed in a Radisson Blu hotel before, this hotel wasn't quite up to the same standards, but still a lovely hotel. The staff were always friendly and helpful. The room appeared a little 'dated' and tired. I'd paid extra to upgrade the room to a 'Business' room and the carpet was old and stained. The desk was also stained...

Not convinced, I expect more from a raddison blue hotel. Breakfast contained what's expected from a breakfast in this hotel chaine, but the staff could easilly be more attentative. I had to ask for their attention on obvious things every day, the tables where very slowly cleaned after previous guests. They might be short in staff for all I know,...

Really nice location and breakfasts. Helpful staff on reception. Overall though hotel was dated and in need of a refit. Bathroom was last renovated fully in the 70s. Room was stuck in the 90s. A little lacklustre.
