“Great Hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 January 2014

We stayed in the hotel twice in December, once before our trip to Copenhagen & Munich and once on the way back.
The hotel is great, and the public areas have been renovated since I last stayed there.
The rooms a great and nice and quiet and the main benefit of the hotel is that it is connected to the airport.
For our second stay in December we ere in a business class room which was brilliant, nice and quiet, plenty of toiletries and a separate area for your breakfast upstairs, although the breakfast is a bit limited compared to the normal buffet.
Its my first choice for Manchester airport hotels.

I stayed for one night on arriving in Manchester from Melbourne, and before a return flight to Helsinki.
The room was fine for one night. Great location for access to airport terminals and train station. It took about 20 minutes by train to central Manchester.
It had all the usual facilities, just a bit worn and in need of a refresh, which I understand is scheduled.
The decor was actually quite nice, and could have passed for 'retro' 70s, except you could tell it was obviously just old. Weird eye shaped mirror in my Scandinavian themed room, made me think of Big Brother
The pillows looked plump but disintegrated into nothing when you put your head on them, and the bed slid around on the floor so that I thought it was actually broken. You ended up with the two twin beds pushed together whether you liked it or not.
I couldn't plug my phone in by the bed, because there were no sockets there. I tried to unplug a lamp but the lamp sockets were these weird things that looked like European sockets, but with three pins.
I washed the tea mugs before used because the insides were brown stained - see my pics.
In terms of value, I have paid significantly less for much nicer rooms elsewhere.

Room Tip: Doesn't seem worth requesting a particular room, as you don't get it anyway. Pay extra for B...

I loved the convenience of staying here... being able to walk to the terminal under cover was a big plus for me. I stayed in a Business Class room, which was very nice, functional, quiet, good bathroom with plenty of toiletries. I like the atmosphere in the restaurant, it's a great place to people watch and the food is pretty good to. I enjoyed the ribs.

The carpark here is busy! Cars are left all over, blocking other cars in and making it very tight to manoeuvre about.

We stayed here for 1 night before flying out to NYC, everything was easy, great views of the airport (if thats your bag!), great service and food in the resteraunt bar area.

Pool facility was great, clean and relaxing.

We used the fly&drive at the hotel, which was easy and stress free. Direct link to the airport terminal. Very relaxing start to the holiday, very calm in the middle of a busy airport!

We stayed for one night before flying off to the USA in December 2013. Although checkin procedure was swift and efficient and the rooms booked where very nice when we visited the restaurant later that evening after being told we couldnt book a table in advance, it took over an hour for them to seat us. Would suggest that either a prebooking system or a larger restaurant would be adviseable.

The Radisson Blu Mancester Airport is excellent value if you book it six months or so in advance, at the same time as you book your flight. It's also highly convenient, being inside the airport and having enclosed walkways to the terminals on either side of the hotel building. On this basis or advance-booking value and convenience, I can't fault it.

Entering the hotel does rather seem like wandering into the back door of a building site, though. Major modernisation works are in progress and it's impossible to hide these; what seems as though it must be a fairly grand lobby has been sealed off, and during the daytime the grinding of concrete drills fills the air - not an environment in which one would want to spend one's days, but if you're staying here then you're probably spending just a night before or after flying, and the hotel are very good at regulating the hours of the builders' activities.

Room Tip: You might want to splurge for an executive room, or you might want just to hope to be offered a chea...
