Stayed for one night recently, having used the Radisson Blu chain elsewhere...bit of a queue at check-in, and there are lots of sofas in front of the reception desk, so the queue started trailing back to the door at a strange angle. The receptionist was very pleasant though, gave plenty of information, and coped well when her computer had an IT glitch.
The room itself was lovely, very comfortable bed, nice wet room with shower and bath - nice to have a shaving mirror in the shower!
We used the Steak and Lobster restaurant, where you can have a full lobster or rib-eye steak for £17.00, including sides (but not the accompanying sauce), - the steaks were excellent, although add three drinks and one dessert and the bill soared to £80.00. The service was a little slow, but very friendly and polite. Likewise the breakfast consisted of the usual buffet choice (very nice, fresh food) and also the a la carte menu (excellent porridge!!), but still seemed a little steep at nearly £20.00 each.
The highlight of the stay was the spa - I didn't have any treatments or use the gym, but I was lucky enough to have the lovely pool, jacuzzi, sauna and steam room to myself. All very clean, and very relaxing. Unfortunately, later in the evening, I released that I'd left my glasses in the changing room locker, but mentioned it to the receptionist, and the glasses were waiting for me the next morning at the reception desk.
Overall, the receptionists, concierge, spa and restaurant/bar staff were very friendly, helpful and made the stay complete. I'd definitely stay again. Oh - and the decor and lighting was amazing - we particularly liked the giant cockerel by the side entrance!!
