Radisson Blu Edwardian Hotel

Located about 5 - 10 minutes drive from London Heathrow airport, Radisson Blu Edwardian Hotel in England looks small and non-descript from the outside. But step inside, and the elaborate and opulent interior which exudes old world colonial charm impresses. And while the service of staff here is good, the location of Radisson Blu Edwardian Hotel is relatively poor, being quite far away from the city.

Ambience within Radisson Blu Edwardian is grand in the main areas, such as the main reception foyer and the conference foyer. But go beyond into the rooms however, and Radisson Blu Edwardian Hotel starts to feel cramped... The layout of the place is a maze of corridors and dim lighting. Fortunately, signage to the various areas is clear.

I stayed in the Superior Room of Radisson Blu Edwardian Hotel. The room was small and cramped, with barely any walking space, although it had a work desk. The wardrobe, while sufficient, was also rather small, as was the bathroom. Fortunately, the room was comfortable and clean, and the clear wall to ceilings windows offered a good view of the surrounding area outside Radisson Blu Edwardian Hotel.

Food at Radisson Blu Edwardian Hotel is rather limited, with only 1 restaurant, and 1 bar. Menu options are limited as well. However, dishes served at the Trunk Restaurant & Bar use locally-sourced, fresh ingredients, which packs good taste and flavour, and the chef's skill is evident in the well-prepared, and tastefully presented dishes. Portions are big, and more than enough for a single person.

Service at Radisson Blu Edwardian Hotel is above average, but not outstanding. Staff are friendly, polite and efficient, able to accomodate requests, but the service at Radisson Blu Edwardian Hotel isn't particularly memorable or commendable. The exception is the banquet and events personnel, who go out of their way to assist during setting up / tearing down of events. Because of them, I would highly recommend Radisson Blu Edwardian Hotel for corporate functions.

Facilities & Activities
The facilities at Radisson Blu Edwardian Hotel for leisure are limited, with only a small gymnasium and health spa. However, Radisson Blu Edwardian Hotel has very good business and conference facilities, with spacious rooms and classical decor, and a well-equipped business centre. Catering for functions is good, with a nice range of food options, and at relatively affordable prices.
