The ultra-modern hotel boasts four top quality restaurants, meeting space for up to 400 people with state-of-the-art presentation technology and wireless LAN access, luxurious rooms in three unique styles and, of course, is located just a three minute walk from the UK’s fastest growing airport and leading hub for low-cost and European scheduled airlines. All rooms will feature Easy Connect high-speed Internet access, a mini bar, pay-TV and refreshment facilities as standard.

The health club is free for residents while membership is available to non-residents. The club will feature an indoor swimming pool, steam room, saunas, gym, treatment rooms and exercise rooms.

Radisson SAS, part of Rezidor SAS Hospitality, is a leading provider of airport hotels and has run the very successful Radisson SAS Hotel at Manchester Airport for a number of years. From this experience Rezidor SAS Hospitality knows exactly what travellers and meeting organisers are looking for.

Special opening lead-in room rates are £105 per room per night.
