I've done a lot of corporate travelling and gotten really fed up with the plastic people and the sterile service. The staff here are great, check in is quick and efficient but with some personality! Terri on reception is a genuinely lovely person and really made me feel valued as a customer. The rooms are clean, with proper sized beds... More

Great hotel in one of the best locations in the city. Beautiful rooms, if a little Spartan for this level of hotel. More than anything else, the staff are great, cannot do enough for you. The gym and pool are of a very good quality. Will use again when in Durham.

My good friend was recently married here, I have stayed in the hotel in the past and had an excellent experience, however this time we did not stay. The wedding was excellent and the staff ensured it went off without a hitch, the food and drinks were excellent and nothing was too much trouble.

we are regular visitors to Durham and normally stay at the Royal County. My wife looked up the Radison blu. It's the same star rating and a lot better priced. The staff were superb and we had our 16 month old baby with us and the hotel was very child friendly. I have read a few negative comments on trip... More

This is a very lovely hotel beside the river. We were lucky to have a room with a view of the river, Castle and Cathedral. Beautiful rooms very clean and comfortable. The pool is a good length for a swim. We will be staying here again and maybe go to the theatre that is just a five minute walk.

This Hotel is pleasantly situated on the banks of the River Wear a short walking distance from the town centre and Cathedral. The Front of House staff were very welcoming and the check in was faultless, the room was clean and well equipped for our stay. The standard of the food in the bar was poor and when we ate... More
