Radisson Blu Hotel
Radisson Blu Hotel, Perth was originally built as one of the British Transport Hotels due to its proximity to the train station. The stunning building is a Grade II listed building with incredible landscaped gardens, beautiful architecture and grand staircases.
The building also has strong links to the British aristocracy. Shortly after its original opening, the then Prince of Wales and future King Edward VII inspected and approved the hotel for a visit by his mother, Queen Victoria, who became a frequent guest. She would often split her journeys to Balmoral Castle by visiting the hotel for lunch in her private room, and a ‘royal passage’ was created, linking Perth train station with the property.
Hospitality At Radisson Blu Hotel
Featuring 75 guest rooms and suites, a restaurant, a lobby bar, a garden bar, a fitness gym, treatment rooms, and two ballrooms, including the largest outside Edinburgh, plus five large meeting and conference rooms, Radisson Blu Hotel can meet needs for any occasion.
The hotel’s restaurant, Victoria, will be a vibrant, social meeting place offering a spin on classic British dishes served with organic wines. The modern grill menu celebrates the beauty of the land and sea through fire, foraging, and the cultivated fields brought to life by way of seasonally inspired classics that promote sustainable, fresh, organic, and local ingredients, from grass-fed beef to foraged herbs and great farm cheeses.
