14 pounds charge for 24 hours in car park. Expensive room rate with no breakfast... Could not use the Spa at 1800hrs on Saturday evening because of being full of noisy drunk guests... Complained to staff on desk. Attitude of receptionist was appalling... No complimentary coffee or drink at bar whilst our wait to get into Spa.... Complained an hr later to Manager.. All in all I will never stay her again... Bitterly disappointed and a total waste of money!!!

I went for a night away with my two sister in law's and Sharon on the desk at the Radisson was so helpful as were the other staff. The rooms were spacious and clean and the breakfast was fantastic. The health suite was lovely and relaxing. We would definitely return as it's in walking distance if he centre and the station.
