Radisson Blu Hotel, Manchester Airport
Travel Blogs from Manchester
We have stayed here many times, but the refurbishment took us by surprise! Was really nice to chill at the bar with funky music, definitely been taken unto the 21st century!
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 …
... for us to go and watch the World Cup final tomorrow. We have found the people here to be super friendly and chatty.
We are trying very hard to stay awake right now. We've been up for over 26 hours but want to try and get ourselves adjusted to the time change ASAP.
Tomorrow we are visiting Anfield stadium. Soooo excited! ❤️ Liverpool FC
... t bother me and I returned the looks with a non condescending smile.
We went on the hunt for pizza which we had eventually found at a discount price from a scary chinese restaurant down the road. Not the smartest decision I have ever made in my life, but after the extensive search we settled. We returned to the bar for a few drink to compliment the pizza and I sent Nic on a mission to the nearest grocer for more drinks for the evening. We could save a ...
... paths in a similar direction to the day before. We didn't make the 55km goal for the day only hitting 40km as I wasn't feeling great in the afternoon and we decided to turn around rather than get stuck in the middle of nowhere! We made a good decision as I was still not feeling well enough the next day however after a day off from cycling and a train ride to Liverpool I am ready to get back on the bike :) Rodney, however, did ride Manchester ...

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.
