I was really looking forward to staying at the Radisson Blu as all of the branding suggests a very high standard; however, I felt that everything was just slightly under par.
The hotel room was very clean but a bad smell came from the sink drain.
The room had a funky, sleak design but the carpets were stained and there were chips on the sink and bathroom door.
Complementary water and chocolates were left but there was no dressing gown or slippers (I know that's a very minor point but I think all the small details are what add up to a place being excellent).
There was a very wide spread at breakfast (which we paid extra for) but the quality wasn't great...
The very friendly and helpful hotel staff.
Very comfortable bed.
Great city centre location
