Radisson Blu Hotel, Manchester Airport
Travel Blogs from Manchester
For one reason or another, this could be our last time. The pull of the heavy air and warm people draws us back for a 4th time this February; we're off to the Gulf Coast of Florida again. Before I go on, I ought to provide some context. For the first time in 7 years, both Hazel and I are working. With complex and constrained childcare arrangements …
... Park and over the spectacular Llanberis Pass. We made a couple of stops for pictures. At one of these stops, a couple of sheep were grazing right close to the parking lot. This area mines slate, so it's really rocky. The rocks are quite shiny, and some of them are marbled with quartz. At the edge of this park is another touristy town, Betws-y-coed, which is quite pretty. I'd like to come back here for a ...
... England and then had to catch another train on platform 7 to Liverpool and once again waited about 15 min. And another hour later we got to Liverpool. Our hotel was just a few blocks away (thanks Susan) so we got rid of our luggage and I was starved for some real food so walked to The Hub bar and kitchen , walked around to look at shops BUT they were all closing at 6;30! I didn't realize Europe closed so early! I guess it gives me time to blog this. Good nite at 7:03pm ...
Today I booked & paid for my flights to Australia. One way ticket! It feels amazing to say that..."one way ticket" Thinking about it fills me with a whole bag of emotions- excitement, anxiety, fear, happiness. The list goes on. It's booked, I'm going, ...
... exploring the family history.
We're planning on staying over in North America for a long trip - again, with a very flexible time-table. May well leave Sylvia there and pop home periodically before driving down Central America and into South America. Who knows how long these explorations may take - 3 or 4 years I could guess at - but plans can change at any time.....

Historical Traveler Reviews Radisson Blu Hotel, Manchester Airport
Modern and professional - for once in the UK ...
The perfect antidote for anyone fed up with the Fawlty Towers of Britain, their fake antique furniture, their filthy wall-to-wall carpets, their pathetic heating systems and their suffocating Laura Ashley designs ... this hotel is modern, efficient and friendly.
everything works. The restaurant is superb. It is just a relief for a business traveller to stay here and relax at the end of a long day.
Also provide highy functional meeting facilities. Highly recommended.
After driving south for hours and too many stressful miles all around this hotel really calmed me down ! The covered walkway from car rental drop garage is really nice as it was cold and raining ! There was some kind of mini convention going on when I arrived and the people seem to have invaded all of the ground floor, in consequence my friend had a hell of a time parking at the hotel which has a very intricate" Mr Rogers "entry and exit system for guest cars, but this is the UK !!!, nice restaurant for dinner and an excellent breakfast before leaving, I asked for oatmeal which was not on the menu and the waitress smiled and brought an order out in no time, rooms are very euro modern but this is a Radisson SAS hotel and they are all like this internally, a 5 min covered walk at check out level saw me arrive at Continental's check in, very smooth, I plan on doing the same thing this May( hope it works ! ) ps room and bathroom are VERY comfortable and worth every cent( few UK hotels provide either comfort or value
First time visited, first class hotel
Stayed at hotel day prior to flight out of Manchester airport early next day. Found everything from arrival to departure first class, no hesitation in reccommending this experience to anyone. Staying there again this year? What do you think, I value high standards of service.
I had the pleasure of staying at this wonderful hotel in November. On arrving we were immediately upgraded - without us asking - to what has to be the best room in the hotel. The room looked out over the whole of Manchester, it was Guy Fawkes night so you can imagine the view! You could even see Old Trafford in all its glory! We were right in the line of the incoming planes, which was an amazing sight, although the noise was non-existant. The room was ultra modern and like no other hotel room I've ever stayed in. The restaurant was equally billiant, food and view were superb. Going on honey moon to New York in June, I'll definitely be booking into this hotel before flying out, its truly brillant!
The Most Convenient - and nice
I needed a last minute hotel this summer on our way from Wales back to the US. The kids were fascinated by the "Airport Hotel", but I've never been fond of them. What a pleasant surprise. Nice room, decent price for three, ten minute walk to the Delta gate the next morning and the room was totally silent, even though we looked out over the airport itself. A bonus, after a week in small B&B's was the excellent air conditioning. I'll be staying there for my second time this November.
There is a 'single supplement' that makes the price less attractive, but the cleanliness and convenience more than makes up for it.
Radisson SAS Manchester --Very Nice
Very convenient to airport and train. Excellent service and food. Very clean and modern. Well worth the stay.
Stayed there last aug 2002 great room and staff
well don radisson great stay before flying out to menorca we are back june 2003
Stayed here before a meeting in Machester and was first SAS I've stayed in but won't be the last. The rooms and Breakfast were first class.
Very modern, fashionable hotel
Great hotel, with great rooms of individual themes to keep it unlike other generic hotels. Great service, comfortable beds, friendly staff. Loved the nautical themed room.
Could not be more convenient
Ideal location for catching a plane. Roads around Manchester are so congested that many travellers prefer to stay overnight nearby prior to departure. From here you can walk undercover a few yards to escalators to all terminals. No struggling in and out of transfer buses. Will also keep your car free for 14 days. Hotel itself just like any other modern luxury job. I think it's pricey, but then they all are these days. Super saver the best value. Will use it again.
