“Smart clean and contemporary.”
Reviewed 30 March 2014 via mobile

A very smart hotel typical Scandinavian feel, great room, very comfortable with all you need, I have visited several Radisson hotels in Sweden and the standards are always good. We was on a corporate rate with high volumes catered for. But all was good and everyone happy.

Stayed February 2014, travelled on business

I really liked this hotel. The rooms are very funky and modern, with a nicely laid out modern bathroom, but with no bath.
The public areas are nice with good food in the restaurant. Service was very good, especially on reception where the staff had a bit if character. The hotel is moments from the road network and right next to the airport, though there was no noise from either.
For the quality of the hotel, the prices are very reasonable, surprisingly so even.

Room Tip: Not so much for a good room, but there is a different menu for the bar and restaurant. Check out bot...

good location making it easy to access from UK (near M1 motorway ) and from Europe ( near the east midland airport ). Good range of facilities for business conferences and/or meetings plus the usual facilities that you would expect in a new hotels.

Had one night at this hotel before an early morning conference there the next morning.

Location is ideal, just off the main road links and adjacent to the airport, with lots of parking.

Check-in was simple and pleasant.

The room was large, modern and clean. I had a comfortable night's sleep - which helped for the conference the next morning (which was also managed well).

Stayed here for my 50th birthday on Park & Fly before short break from East Midlands airport. The car park is huge & your car stays where you leave it for the duration. The transfer takes 5 minutes & is very efficient.

The hotel room was amazing with runway views and was very quiet. The room was Business Class & very spacious & spotlessly clean. Deal includes a couple of complimentary drinks from the fridge, 2 movies & breakfast.

Ate in the brasserie where the food was superb. The waitress arrived with 2 complimentary glasses of champagne to celebrate my birthday and a decorated chocolate pudding with an iced birthday message - a lovely touch. Breakfast was equally as good.

Very nice leisure facilities with good pool and sauna/steam room. Some noisy toddlers using the pool on a Sunday afternoon but you expect this on a weekend.

Overall highly recommended & would definitely use again. Only 2 minutes from the M1.

Room Tip: Business Class rooms are excellent - ask for runway view

I stayed here for three nights and it was the best value in the area when you take into account the inclusive wifi and parking.

My standard room was four star quality with a safe, fridge, excellent wifi signal and speed and a good bathroom. I have stayed in many hotels which have speaker switches to broadcast TV sound in the bathroom and this is the first one in the UK that has actually worked! The dual shower is great and the toiletries are better than you get in most hotels. There were also plenty of sockets and the mattresses were nice and firm.

Being an airport hotel the windows are sealed which makes it a little difficult to control the heating in the room. Some of the corridors seem to have a greater problem, being quite hot and stuffy and in need of some fresh air.

I really didn't like the pillows and after the third night it became apparent to me that I hadn't really slept well all week. The TV was annoying - limited channels, marketing pop-ups, defaulting to BBC1 and slow remote control, but it was still far better than many hotels (take note De Vere, Holiday Inn and Accor).

Dinner in the restaurant was good but as others have observed, the specials menu seemed to be the same every night. I suspect the vast majority of guests stay for one night and don't notice this.

I would definitely rate the Radisson Blu higher than the Hilton down the road which I stayed at last time I worked in the area; it's of a higher standard, much more modern and you don't feel like you're being fleeced for extras all the time. I found the staff to be friendly and helpful.

Dear GarethK95,
Thank you very much for your honest comments about your experience. Due to the location and design of the hotel the window cannot open. Therefore the Air Handling provides constant fresh air and control the heating or cooling individual in the guest rooms. The public area and guest corridors are set on a specific temperature. At the moment with the weather changes during the day it takes a bit of time.
I will pass your feedback to our Head Housekeeper to have some different type of pillows on request available.
The Marketing tools are fed into the system from the Carlson Rezidor Hotel Group. We lost recently some channels and looking for replacement, because they changed the satellite frequency.
We are pleased to read you rate our hotel higher than the Hilton Hotel. Hopefully your business brings you back for a next visit.

Kind regards

In the area for a friend's 40th birthday party, so needed somewhere to lay our heads for the night. Great hotel, great room (particularly impressive shower!) at a great price. Didn't have chance to use the leisure facilities, but from what little I saw they looked good. Would definitely stay again...
