The standard of the hotel was excellent only improved by the helpful, friendly staff. Location was superb, only a short walk to all attractions. Will definitely use this hotel again, hopefully in the near future.

We arrived early so when the room wasn't ready I wasn't surprised, but as we needed to get showered and changed to get to our daughters graduation I asked what facilities they had to enable us to do this. I did not find the Reception staff very helpful. Rather than offering a room the Reception Staff directed us to either... More

Having stayed at other Radisson Blu's and, given the price I was hoping for a good stay here. The breakfast was good however the dinner was very poor. The manager of the restaurant even came over and said "how long have you been waiting it seems like ages" then proceeded to walk of and we had to wait another 20... More

A very good and friendly atmosphere through out, value for money with excellent pool. The location is perfect with good restaurants and shopping within walking distance and we had a river view room. I would defiantly stay at this hotel when I am next in Durham.

The Radisson Blu has all the right features for a brief stay to relax and enjoy Durham - location, leisure facilities, excellent rooms, but most of all first class service from helpful, courteous and considerate staff. The swimming pool is quieter at some times than at others, and the Felini restaurant lacks some choice and atmosphere, but overall our stay... More

Situated on the riverside a short walk from the city centre, approaching from the outside this place appears rather unprepossessing. However, looks can be deceiving...:). The interior design is fresh and contemporary, with a light, airy, spacious lobby area. Bar, restaurant and conference facilities are all of excellent quality and there is ample parking. Spa facilities on-site offer a range... More

I had a wonderful 2 night stay at the Radisson with a friend for the Miners Gala. I'd requested a twin room with a river view, the operative word being 'requested' as I'd only paid for a standard room. With it being such a huge weekend, the only river view room they had was a double but they immediately offered... More

My husband and I stayed here for one night. We got our e upgrade to business class. Riim beautiful and the free drinks before our amazing meal in felinis was very nice. The meal itself was top notch. Possibly the best I had ever had. Bit pricey but for our wedding anniversary was all totally worth it. Get yourself there!

A very nice hotel that still appears new even though it's a few years old now. A good gym with everything you would expect, a nice pool and sauna area, could do with a few more loungers around the pool but apart from that it was pretty spot on. The rooms were well decorated and very good for the money.... More

Wonderful welcome on arrival. Then got the great news that my room had been upgraded - it turned out to be a palace! A sitting room, a truly huge bathroom and a bedroom that could have slept six people in comfort - well, maybe not 6 but very roomy and comfortable. Great night's sleep. Excellent breakfast and again great service.... More
