Stayed here two nights from the 18th - 20th October. I can honestly say this is one of the best hotels I've ever stayed in. The staff were amazing - looking after our every need. We had a lovely spacious room on the 3rd floor which over looked the lovely river and bridge. As a frequent customer of the Radisson... More

Stayed here for 3 nights on business. The rooms are a good size, clean and bright. Good quality toiletries - so much better than dispensers on the wall. Breakfast catered for all tastes. My only negative comment about the breakfast is the use of cereal dispensers which crush your cornflakes. Dinner in Felinis is expensive for what you get. Credit... More

The hotel is well run and the satff are extremely polite and helpful, if they make any errors they are quickly resolved. And if there is anyhting you need over and above from the menu they will look to offer you alternatives to food choices

Stayed overnight with work and arrived late so didn't have chance to use many of the facilities. Stayed in a business room and it was excellent, very clean with modern bathroom, overlooking the river and Tassimo coffee machine, robe, slippers all included. Bar area is really nice although a bit pricey, and breakfast very good. Best thing about this hotel... More

I stayed in the hotel for just one night. On checking in I was upgraded to a `Business Class` room, which was large, clean, well equipped and very comfortable. I tried room service and was very happy with the food and the speed of delivery. The hotel is in a superb location and very close to the town centre facilities.... More

The hotel is ideally situated close to the town centre and world heritage site. The pretty river flows interestingly across the road. The hotel, though large, was serviced by very helpful and welcoming staff and the room and bathroom were also large, well fitted out, modern and very clean. Breakfast offered a wide variety though bacon was somewhat leathery. All... More

A fairly decent hotel, nice location right next to the river bank. The hotel itself is nice and clean, what you would expect from raddisson. The facilities are good with gym sauna and Spa, the hotel itself is quite small and apart from the gym and Spa there's not much to do. Make sure you get the front side view... More

I stayed here for one night whilst visiting my son at Durham Uni. The hotel is bright and airy and the staff were great. We ate at the Filini restaurant and the food was ok but the prices were quite high. The breakfast was also 'average' and I'm not sure it was worthy of its £15 price. The rooms were... More

we decided to stay at the Radisson mainly due to a deal found on Booking.com. it wasn't cheap, but we have been wanting to go to Durham for a long time and as a special treat we decided to give it a go. despite the price, as a family, we were certainly not disappointed. the facilities were excellent and the...
