“Excellence - pure and simple.”
Reviewed 9 August 2014

I booked this hotel on an advance no refund fixed price booking to attend the first day of the Test Match at Old Trafford. As an added bonus, as we signed in, the Indian cricket team were coming back from net practice on the eve of the test.

Our room was on the 8th floor and was wonderful. The bed was a very comfortable king in which we slept very well and the bathroom with a wet room style shower area was also a real treat. The complimentary tea and coffee were very good and within hours of arrival someone turned up to offer us replacements for any items we might have already used. We had room service the first night we were there, which turned out to be very generous portions that were served very promptly. The real stars of the show were the concierge team who looked after us so well and even offered us a complimentary breakfast on the first morning were were in the hotel. That proved to be an amazing experience with all manner of fresh fruit and other fresh food with well cooked quality food as well as an a la carte menu. It is a long time since I stayed in an hotel that ticked all the boxes in the way that the Radisson Blu Edwardian did and I cannot wait for another chance to stay there.

Room Tip: I cannot imagine that any room in this excellent hotel would be better or worse. Everything is to a...

We arrived at the Raddision to be warmly greeted by David.
We have stayed at the hotel a number of times and like the decor and the relaxing space . The hotel maintenance team do an excellent job in maintaining the interior decor which so often lets down hotels of this type.
We were delighted with our studio suite which was very peaceful and well appointed.The room was clean and the bed comfortable and provided all the space and utilities we needed.
We will be returning on our next trip to Manchester

We stayed here while attending the weekend parklife festival so being able to return home to such a lovely hotel after being in a muddy park all day was a treat. We stayed in the business class 'posh' room which had great urban views over the railway station. We had room service breakfast which was delicious and the bar has great staff and tasty snacks. The staff were really helpful when we were struggling to find a quick way to get to parklife. A great stay!

Dear Jade H,

We are happy to hear that you chose The Free Trade Hall as your luxurious oasis during your time at the parklife festival. As the weather was not kind to you I am delighted that you could warm up and relax ( mud free ) here at the hotel. Our Business Class rooms are proving very popular at the moment all boasting south facing views towards Manchester Central and Old Trafford. We look forward to welcoming you back soon

My Mother used to play trombone with the Halle Orchestra back in the late 40's so when we discovered that the "Freetrade Hall" (where the Halle would rehearse back then) had been converted into a luxury hotel, it seemed the perfect place to go. We were up in Manchester for the Halle last night of the proms at Bridgewater Hall and this hotel made it the perfect weekend. The concierge Stephan was wonderful and even gave us a private tour stopping to show us the "Sir John Barirolli room", the original Halle windows still intact and other original artifacts they had incorporated into the rebuild. A truly beautiful, luxury hotel....we will be back!
Oh and the traditional English breakfast was fabulous!

One night at the Radisson Blue Manchester is not enough but that’s all we had so we made the most of it. The exterior of the Hotel is very impressive and as we walked inside we were weren’t disappointed, front of house staff were courteous and helpful getting our room sorted in no time unfortunately the room we were given was near the elevators and opposite the entrance to that floor but no problem after asking we were given a room on a higher floor at the end of the corridor wonderful.

Our room was not massive but was light having large windows and very modern, clean with everything we needed for our stay the design utilized every inch of space to the maximum but was pleasing on the eye. The bathroom was like a wet room but had a bath walk-in shower and Toilet which was again designed very well.

As we checked in at 3.00pm we headed straight out into the City which was all walk able and easy to find returning later to change for a night out and meal, there are some great bars and restaurants in Manchester and we visited a few of them before returning to the Hotel where we had a nice drink in the Hotel Bar. The bed was very comfortable with luxury linen and we slept very well as the Hotel was quiet.

Next morning we were up in good time and used the pool, sauna and hot tub really relaxing and a bonus in a city centre hotel our deal did not include breakfast but I had a peak in the Restaurant and it all looked very nice.

Room Tip: Try to get a room on a high floor away from entrance to lifts if possible but not vital as noise is...

I visited this hotel with my boyfriend after booking on hotels.com. We paid £100 a night and for this I would expect an excellent stay.

The hotel itself was beautiful, however the service really let it down. After stumbling in with all our bags, the doorman who can only be described as vacant barely gave us a second glance despite us struggling to open the door. We weren't even offered for our bags to be taken which is very disappointing.

We then stumbled to the lift and up to our room on the 9th floor, however after standing in the lift for five minutes and wondering why we weren't moving, the receptionist failed to mention you had to insert the key card to activate!

On arrival the room was beautiful but with a very ugly view. After specifically booking a double room we were greeted by two single beds! For £100 a night I expect to get the room I asked for.

Like previously stated, I feel the more vocal and boisterous of customers would benefit, being polite gets you nowhere at this hotel!

Good location, parking is a hassle and very pricey. 5 star hotel? Barely 3 star service.

Dear Reviewer,

Thank you for your review following your time with us - I am sorry to hear that the reception team were not as fully attentive as they usually are during your arrival. I will look into this immediately and offer my most sincere apologies. As the leading hotel in the North West we pride ourselves on both our product and service so I can ensure measures are being taken to act on your comments. Booking via 3rd party agents is popular with all of our guests but unfortunately special requests via such parties cannot be guaranteed - the only site to guarantee room types is our own. Please remember that all Radisson hotels have a price match guarantee so if you see a rate anywhere else we will happily match the rate by booking direct and copy the terms and conditions that are offered via other sites ( as long as we can see them online at the time of booking ) . We hope that you will return to us soon dispite your inconvenience this time.
Kind Regards

Deluxe city view room was fantastic, with all the luxury extras expected from a 5 star hotel. Very clean, spacious with quality fittings and a huge, soft bed. Although the hotel was busy, staff were very attentive, David on reception was particularly helpful. We enjoyed excellent service in the hotel's Steak and Lobster Restaurant and the hotel is perfectly situated to explore Manchester. Breakfast was great with really fresh, quality food. Can't wait to stay again.
