My friend and I visited for a Spa day. Though it was a special offer, it certainly was a first class experience. Very covid safe. All the staff friendly and attentive. I had two treatments with Laura, both were fabulous... We are looking forward to our next visit

I paid for a double bed and the room instead had 2 beds put together. Unfortunately I only discovered it at night when I woke up because beds moved apart. I think this practice should be banned on the industry level and hotels should be required to disclose that what they offer is not a double bed.

Thank you for your review, I am very sorry to read of your disappointment. This is a general standard in large hotels as it allows more flexibility. We do offer queen bedded rooms that feature a solid base, therefore should you visit us again please let the team know and we can allocate this for you. Kind Regards Catherine

I stay away from home quite a lot and it was my first visit to the Radisson Blu. Clean, welcoming and friendly. Chloe on the front desk is amazing and can't do enough for you. She is a credit to Radisson Blu and should be recognised and rewarded for all the hard work she does.

Great cleanliness and Covid safety measures in place. The staff were so very welcoming and helpful and the food great. This is in an excellent location close to all the amenities and to the river, castle and cathedral to end a busy day working with a lovely walk and fresh air.

Looking forward to going back here when we can. Met my family members back in July when we could. Really warm welcome from staff, great to be able to park there in a city hotel and then walk right into the city in just a couple of minutes. Restaurant food was delicious too. Thank you.
