The Radisson Blu hotel is on-site at the airport and connected to the terminal by an undercover walkway.
Overnight parking costs £12 per car. On-site parking packages are available to book, though customers may need to leave their key. This is due to the fact that occasionally vehicles will be moved to a secure, off-site compound and then returned to the hotel, ready for the customer to collect when they return from their trip.
No shuttle service is necessary, as the hotel is a mere 2 minute walk away from the terminal.
A variety of themed rooms are available to book, including blue-toned, ocean-like rooms, red & wood schemes in the urban rooms and a 'chilli' room style, with a variety of shapes & colours.
All rooms include tea & coffee making facilities, free high speed wifi, a laptop-size safe, a minibar, a TV and a hairdryer, as standard.
The hotel has two restaurants onsite.
The Collage restaurant serves classic British dishes - such as fish & chips, burgers and steak - using quality ingredients. The average price of a main meal is £15 and the restaurant is open between 6pm - 10:30pm daily.
The Station 169 restaurant is a steakhouse with a show kitchen. Mains average at £27 and it is open between 6pm - 10:30pm.
The Angels Wine Bar is a sight to behold, with a 42 foot tower that holds 4,000 bottles of wine. The bar has an extensive drinks list, as well as a few menu options.
Breakfast is served from 4am in the Collage restaurant and costs £12.95 per person. Kids under 12 eat free with each paying adult. A takeaway breakfast is also available.
Room service is available 24 hours a day.
Well located for the Terminal
The road signage to the hotel car park is inadequate for a new user arriving after dark. Similarly, the signage from the hotel car park to reception needs to be improved for users unfamiliar with the place. Yet more, the signage to the hotel from the airport arrivals hall is woeful. Repetition to the point of boredom is needed. Lastly, the restaurant staff took our dinner order and then forgot us. It took 40 minutes to jog their memory and they were entirely unrepentant. I feel that I am unable to recommend this hotel although I would draw attention to its convenience in any relevant conversation. However, the parking arrangements worked well with first-class service. Hooray for something. That I would recommend.
