Fantastic location right on the river with views of the castle & cathedral from the bedroom window. Friendly efficient staff & everything scrupulously clean. My room was bright & airy & so quiet which was great. We ate in the restaurant on the first of a 2 night stay & the meal was lovely. Amazing bread which looked a bit... More

We've stayed at Radisson Blu a number of times and have always enjoyed this hotel. Rooms are spacious, staff very friendly and helpful. Their breakfast buffet, although always the same, has a good variety to choose from. The pool, steam room, sauna and hot tub are a perfect way to end a busy day and just relax. The hotel is... More

An interesting place to find as no road signage. Clean and tidy throughout. New building works opposite but noise minimum. Getting into centre difficult as signage poor and no tourist information office. A lot of steps to climb either way. Beautiful City but lacks personal touch very disappointed tourist office had shut down due to cut backs. Locals are friendly... More

We decided to opt for this hotel as opposed to others in Durham on the basis of the positive reviews others had posted. Fortunately, our decision to switch hotels proved to be a good move. The hotel is situated in a good riverside location with the town within easy walking distance. Every single member of staff we had dealings with... More

This is the second time this year we have stayed with Radison Blu and both have been very good. This hotel is right on the river, with a very pleasant walk into town. The staff were charming and friendly. The bedroom was light and airy overlooking the river, the bed was large and comfortable,. The breakfast was very nice. The... More

Very nice hotel. I have had better breakfasts but on the whole very enjoyable stay with very friendly staff. Good location for City Centre with short walk over footbridge to shops and restaurants. Car parking good and easy to find but not free. Quiet room looking over river with good facilities and very comfy bed. Would stay here again

The Blu in Durham is hands down the best hotel in the area. I stay here for business (60+ days), as well as, family stays from the US. They just need to shore up the WIFI broadcast, which drops frequently from handheld devices and tablets. There isn't an issue when using laptops with VPN.

3rd visit (Son studying at Durham Uni). Ideally located in a central position and a short walk across the foot bridge to the city centre. Business class is the way to go with the lovely buffet breakfast included as well as complimentary car parking and a superior room.

Thoroughly enjoyed my stay at the Radisson Durham. The event I attended there was well catered for, the check in and check out was easy, as was the car parking; the breakfast may SEEM steep at £15 a head, but it was on par with a good restaurant meal with great choice and quality and lovely coffee and service. What's... More
