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

This hotel could be so much better with some decent management. The service at breakfast is awful. The quality and choice of the food is fine, but everything is cold. The heaters don't work (and the staff acknowledged it) so the hot breakfast is cold (lukewarm at best). The water heater for the tea doesn't work so the tea is... More

A very clean hotel, extremely helpful staff. Even though I would say it was a corprate hotel from the outlook it was great for my family. They sorted a cot for my liitle girl and a large pull out bed for my 3yr old lad with no fuss. I would advise any1 to book this hotel.

Stayed at this hotel as it was easy as we were attending a Wedding. It is ideally situated on the bank of the River Wear in the centre of Durham. The hotel is large but kept spotlessly clean. Our room was quite large, bed large & very comfortable, settee, table & chairs. Food & drinks a little expensive but not... More

The Radisson at Durham is excellently located next to the river and overlooked by the Cathedral. The staff are courteous and the facilities are of a high standard and comparable to a top quality hotel in any major city. Didnt eat at the hotel so cannot comment on the cuisine.

Stayed for one night - didnt seem to be enough staff to deal with no. of guests checking in. The room was comfortable and the pool/spa was good (as was breakfast). The rooms could do with a facelift. Excellent location.

A wonderful, central hotel. Excellent facilities and friendly, professional staff. Just a short walk over the river and you are in the main city. Beautiful views of the Cathedral. Dined at the Cellar Door with a discount from the hotel. A delicious meal which was absolute value for money.
