This hotel is just not up to the standard expected of Radisson. At first glance the room looked like one of the chain's typical rooms, but didn't take long to notice the flaws: Broken furniture, stained carpet and walls, and very poor standard of cleaning overall. (see photos) A strange loud drone would also blare from mybathroom at intervals throughout the night (yes, really!) Reception staff said it was likely "coming from the pipes" and were happy to move me to another room, which was also much better in terms of cleanliness. Got the impression, I wasn't the first guest to complain about the plumbing noise, which begs the question why anyone in the room to begin with? Friendly, helpful staff are only positive aspect about this hotel. Oh, and it's handy for the town centre. So come on Radisson... time to bring in the repair men and give the place a proper clean.
