It's easy just to list why I won't be back. It's too expensive You are charged £7.00 for overnight parking in the hotels car park . Despite having paid for the room in advance they still want to charge an amount to a debit card on check in. Room service was poor and took over 30 minutes to arrive ,... More

We stayed here for 3 nights while attending a conference in Durham. As long as you can walk modest distances it is a great place to visit Durham city centre and try out its numerous restaurants and places to visit. The rooms are good and the service was generally good. On the first day of the conference however there were... More

Stayed for 2 nights recently. Hotel in excellent location, five minute walk to Town Centre over footbridge. Very helpful reception staff. Lovely rooms with river & castle view. Car parking on site only £7.00 per day. Good pool & gym. Will definitely be going back !

We stayed in a business room with a view of the river. We upgraded as it included free parking and breakfast, it also included free drinks between 5:30pm and 7pm which we advised of at check in, a nice little surprise. The public areas like the toilets on the ground floor have been somewhat abused, the rooms though are very... More

We found the best aspect of this hotel to be its excellent spa where you find calm, caring and professional staff. Nice pool. Efficient and helpful reception staff. Bedrooms rather tired, our carpet was grubby. Breakfast experience was chaotic, waiting staff appear to lack motivation and training.

Stayed here for a long weekend. Our room overlooked the car park so not great and it was rather basic; it was clean enough but just lacked that little bit of something to make it feel special. It is handy for walking into the city centre though so great if your planning eating out or partying as its only a... More

It didn't start well. Four of us on a driving holiday, one of whom is disabled. The car parking is extra, and as it takes time for us to unload, with folding wheelchair, I didn't want to risk a ticket. We asked a disinterested young lady on check-in how long the overnight charge covered, and she said it was 24... More

Nothing to complain about as such, but nothing to rave about either. Room was comfortable, but felt a little basic. Everything was fine, and felt new. The leisure area was well equipped and clean, however there wasn't anybody attending the desk when we arrived and left. The sign said we had to pay for a towels! After paying 'top' money... More

Myself and my fiancee stayed over at the Radisson as we were attending a party in Durham. We chose the Radisson over the Marriott as we have stayed there many times before and loved it. Plus it was the anniversary of our engagement so we wanted to go back to the same place from the previous year. Check in was... More
